We all know there’s no place like home for the holidays, as this is the perfect time to spend time with our families. You know what else is great around this time? Treating yourself to a little hair care pampering while you’re snuggling up with your family watching holiday movies. Admit it, when’s the last time you had enough time to deep condition your hair? This is an opportunity you don’t want to miss.
To help you figure out what you need to pack if you’re heading home (or away, that works too) this Thanksgiving weekend, we’ve listed just a few must-have hair products you must not leave home without:
Must-Have Hair Products for Your Weekend Bag
1. Hair Mask
You don’t have to bring the entire hair mask jar with you! Instead, you can scoop some out and decant into a plastic container or even a Ziploc bag (Ed’s note: If you have time, you can probably find a travel-sized packet too). After getting your grub on, relax and give yourself a little deep conditioning time. Don’t you want pretty hair for whatever the following day brings? We do, which is why we make it a point to have one of our favorite hair masks handy: Dove Anti-Frizz Oil Therapy Hair Mask is perfect for hydrating your hair during the colder months.
2. Dry Shampoo
Let’s say you don’t have time to wash your hair in time for Thanksgiving dinner. Problem solved: Pack your dry shampoo. A dry shampoo like TRESemmé Between Washed Volumizing Dry Shampoo is a great option! Our must-have hair product helps instantly refresh your ‘do if you’re making that last-minute plane/train/automobile ride home. No one will ever know you didn’t have enough time to go the full nine yards!
3. Hair Oil
Depending on where home is, you might be faced with brutal weather conditions that call for wool scarves, hats, hoodies with all of the fur, beanies, berets—the works. Winter accessories are cute and all, but different fabrics grazed against your hair can cause snagging, static flyaways and even split ends. Pack a hair oil like Love Beauty and Planet Hope and Repair Coconut Oil & Ylang Ylang 3-in-1 Benefit Oil. to add shine to your hair and also add a protective layer to help prevent all that winter-crackle frizz and damage.
4. Shampoo and Conditioner Set
Shampoo and conditioner is an absolute must! Since the Holidays may be stressful, we love Love Beauty and Planet Smooth & Serene Argan Oil & Lavender Shampoo and Conditioner. This set has the most relaxing lavender scent, it’s sure to take away any post-holiday stress.
5. Hair Spray
If you want your hairstyle to last beyond Thanksgiving dinner, we suggest bringing your hairspray along. There’s nothing worse than having curls fall flat before the turkey is barely out of the oven! Pack a hair spray like TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Boost Hold Level 3. This must-have hair product gives you non-stiff hold with lots of movement.
