Tips for travel (the teaser)

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 didnt 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 mamas 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 cant have your way in its entirety.

So heres what you (I) do.

1. You get some little containers. I got mine at Rickys, 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 cant live withouts. For me thats Creme For Style and Ocean Mist. (And mousse but remember were 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 its most natural state, but enhanced. I cant tell you how many times Ive brought a full kit for blow dryingbrushes and all, but opted to spend more time enjoying my vacation rather than primping myself. I hate bringing things on vacation that I dont use (Ill literally wear 10 pairs of shoes the last day to make sure every pair got worn), so I just dont bring that stuff anymore. For me, products are they key for wearing my hair natural, so products get brought.

Whats your hair travel plan?

Ive been away from the blog for about a week and a half because my husband, Jake, and I went on vacation to Barcelona and Paris. It was a great trip, we had so much fun, but its good to be back! Were hoping to film a tutorial or two this weekend since its been a few. I cant wait. Tutorials are my favorite.

So, if you are into it, I thought Id share a few photos of our vacation with you!

Did you notice my vacay hair? Maude braids, halo braids and top knots galore. I love for my hair to look good and be out of my way so I dont have to worry about anything but having fun!

How do you wear your hair on a holiday?
