How to keep your hair looking flawless while traveling!

When you’re planning your vacation it can be difficult to choose which hair products to pack and which to leave behind. Keep reading to learn what products we love and how to keep your hair looking fabulous whether you’re on the road or at the beach. 

First and foremost make sure to bring along your favorite shampoo & conditioner.

Swing by your salon for travel sizes of your favorite products or you can purchase some airline approved bottles from your local drugstore to fill up at home.

Dry Shampoo

For no-wash days or a mid-day refresh, you should make sure to include a dry shampoo on your packing list. Dry shampoo is a versatile product that is excellent for refreshing hair between washes, adding texture and body, and absorbing excess oil. 

We love ReFINISH Dry Shampoo from Arrojo!

Absorbs excess oil, creates texture and volume

Sea Salt Spray

Sea salt sprays help encourage beachy waves and can give your hair some added texture. Similar to a dry shampoo, sea salt sprays also aid in absorbing excess moisture and help give your hair that “second-day” look. 

We love BEACH Day from UNITE and the Wave Mist from Arrojo!

For wet or dry hair, reactivates curl, adds texture & helps with oily hair

Leave-In Conditioner and Detangler

A leave-in conditioner is a must if you will be spending a lot of time in the water on your travels. If you wet your hair and spray in a little conditioner before your swim, it will keep your hair from absorbing as much chlorine, as well as protect it from any damage caused by seawater. Conditioning and detangling products work wonders after a swim as well for combing out tangles damage-free.

We love the 7SECONDS Detangler from UNITE!

Conditions, detangles & protects from heat and UV

Heat/UV Protectant

UV rays are damaging to your hair just like they are damaging to your skin. If you are going to a sunny destination and especially if you have color treated hair, you should make a point to shield your hair from UV damage. A heat protectant is also important if you frequently use a blow dryer, flat iron, or curling iron for styling to prevent future damage to your strands. If you don’t use hot tools and are only looking to protect your hair from the sun, you can purchase sunscreen designed specifically to protect your hair!

We love this SLEEK PERFECTION Thermal Spray Serum from Goldwell Stylesign!

Heat, humidity & UV protection

Styling Cream or Mousse

Since you can’t bring all of your products with you, including some multi-purpose products is key. You’ll never know what the day, or the weather will have in store. Look for something that can be used on dry or wet hair to style, combat frizz, or add hold!

We love this Styling Whip from Arrojo!

For all hair types. Use on damp or dry hair to prevent frizz, add body and moisture

You should consider bringing the following with you for easy styling, sun protection, bad hair days, or no-wash days:

Bobby pins, clips & barrettes

For pesky flyaways and easy styling

Hats & Headscarves

For sun protection and style

Hair ties & Scrunchies

For messy buns, ponytails, and braids galore
