Are you planning a summer getaway? Don't forget to pack your beauty products.
Here are 5 must-have travel hair products to make sure your mane is tamed from the beach to the airport.
5 Hair Products To Take On Your Next Vacation
You could take a risk and trust that your hotel will be stocked with a shampoo and conditioner you love. Or, you can pack your own. When choosing travel sized products, look for shampoo and conditioner that add moisture. Products with argan oil or shea butter usually do the trick. We recommend Oribe’s Shampoo and Conditioner for Beautiful Colour as well as the Masque for Beautiful Colour.
2. Texturizing Spray
A good texturizing spray can do wonders for your hair. First, it can help you create those coveted beachy waves. The spray can also help to control frizz, a common problem in areas with high humidity, especially for those spending their days soaking up the sun. Finally, a great texturizing spray will leave your hair with a glossy shine, making it look like you spent much more time on your hair than you actually did. We recommend Oribe’s Dry Texture Spray or the Après Beach Wave & Shine Spray.
Pool and ocean water can do a number on hair. Using a detangler will help you comb through knots more easily, saving your hair from breaking and damage. Be sure to pack a wide tooth comb as well. We recommend Oribe’s Supershine Moisturizing Cream and Gold Lust Oil.
Yes, sunblock for your hair is a vacation essential! Just like you need to protect your skin from harmful rays, your hair needs to be protected, too. Choose a spray on product with SPF 15, made specifically for hair. The product will help to protect your hair from damage and will even keep your colored hair from fading in the sun. We recommend Oribe’s Supershine Moisturizing Cream or Gold Lust Balm d'Or.
5. Dry Shampoo/Texture Spray
No one wants to spend precious vacation time dealing with blowdrying and styling hair. Dry shampoo is the best trick to low maintenance summer hair. Spraying dry shampoo on the roots of your hair will absorb oil, add volume, and refresh your look. Grab a travel size of your favorite brand for mornings when you just don't feel like washing and drying.
6. Anti-humidity Spray
Prevent frizz on your tropical vacation with an anti-humidity spray. We recommend Oribe’s Impermeable Anti-Humidity Spray.
Travel sized hair products can help you keep your hair looking great throughout your vacation. Be sure to follow TSA guidelines for liquids to avoid tossing your products in the airport security line.
