Must-Have Hair Products You Need to Bring Home for Thanksgiving Weekend

Don’t leave home without them!

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? While you’re snuggling up with your family watching holiday movies, you can treat yourself to a little hair care pampering. 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:

Add These Must-Have Hair Products To Your Weekend Bag

1. Hair Mask

You don’t have to bring the entire 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: Nexxus Humectress Moisture Restoring Masque 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 Fresh Start Basic Care Dry Shampoo 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 Serum

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 serum like TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum to add shine to your hair and also add a protective layer to help prevent all that winter-crackle frizz and damage.

4. Boar-Bristled Brush

You can get away with not packing a comb, but a brush, especially a boar-bristled brush? Maybe not. Throw this styling tool into your backpack to help you groom your hair with a smooth finish. Our go-to brush of choice is Nexxus Ibiza Yolles Ceramic Boar Brush.

5. Finishing Spray

If you want your hairstyle to last beyond Thanksgiving dinner, we suggest bringing your hairspray along. There’s nothing wrong than having curls that drop once the turkey is out of the oven. Pack a hairspray like Dove Style+Care Flexible Hold Hairspray for a non-stiff hold with lots of movement.
