Last weekend I took a trip to Miami. The trip was big enough that I wanted to look cute and go out, but little enough that I didn’t want to check a bag. The thought of leaving my house without every single hair product I own makes me want to weep in my mama’s arms, so where does that leave a girl like me? It leaves me compromising. The sad truth about traveling with hair and rules about liquids is that you probably can’t have your way in it’s entirety.
So here’s what you (I) do.
1. You get some little containers. I got mine at Ricky’s, a beauty supply here in NYC, but you can get them at many other places like Sephora or a local pharmacy. Here are some I found at the Container Store website..
2. You fill them up with your can’t live withouts. For me that’s Creme For Style and Ocean Mist. (And mousse but remember we’re compromising?) I needed a squeezey bottle and a spritzy bottle for these. Obviously shampoo and conditioner can be brought as well if you hate what your hotel provides for you.
My strategy is to wear my hair at it’s most natural state, but enhanced. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve brought a full kit for blow drying…brushes and all, but opted to spend more time enjoying my vacation rather than primping myself. I hate bringing things on vacation that I don’t use (I’ll literally wear 10 pairs of shoes the last day to make sure every pair got worn), so I just don’t bring that stuff anymore. For me, products are they key for wearing my hair natural, so products get brought.
What’s your hair travel plan?
