Never travel without these hair care staples.

Aside from being obsessed with putting together our stylish vacation looks, some of us are über obsessed with our travel beauty routines, from finding the most effective and hydrating sheet masks, face oils and the best hand creams. However, it doesn’t stop there. Many women are now making sure that they have all the right hair care and styling products in their beauty kits. While you may not be able to do a full- on hair care and hair styling routine on the plane, you certainly can treat your hair during your vacation. But what exactly do you need to carry with you during vacation for a quick pick-me-up? Answer: Only a few essential travel size hair products.

Here, we’ve listed the top five must-have travel size hair products you’ll need to add to your carry on.

Best Travel Size Hair Products To Pack for Your Trip

Pack the best travel size hair products into your luggage for a no-fuss vacation.


There’s nothing like coming off an airplane with our hair rested against the head-rest everyone has been laying on and thinking about all of the germs that may have transferred into our hair. For some of us, this seems a bit dirty. On the other hand, though, there’s some of us that mad dash to the airport without enough time to wash and style our hair before our trip. Pack a shampoo that can clarify your hair and get rid of impurities. Wash your hair as soon as you’ve arrived at your destination. Try Suave Daily Clarifying Shampoo to remove residue or TRESemmé 2-In-1 Shampoo Plus Conditioner, which works to cleanse and hydrate your hair in one easy step—perfect for the gal on-the-go!


After washing your hair, of course, the next step is always to condition your locks. Pack a conditioner that helps rehydrate your hair. Let’s face it, not only does airplane air suck the life and moisture out of your skin, it also leaves hair feeling super dry. Replenishment and rehydration are key for parched locks post-flight. Opt for a conditioner like TRESemmé Moisture Rich Conditioner whose formula works to deliver hydration to your hair to target dryness, which you’ll totally need on your adventures.


3.Dry Shampoo

Going away for a long trip? If you answered yes, you certainly have a reason to pack this miracle in a bottle hair product into your bag. Another reason, some of us don’t really have the time to wash our hair during vacation for obvious reasons: we rather spend the time having fun, or we’re just way too busy. We’re obsessed with Dove Detox & Purify Dry Shampoo, which works to refresh and revive oily hair in-between washes. A serious hair saver on vacation.

4. Boar Bristle Brush

Your hotel probably has a complimentary blowdryer and a basic comb, but they may not have a good brush. We’re pretty sure you don’t want to use a brush with rough bristles that will tug and pull out your hair. Opt for a smarter choice. The boar bristle brush is the brush you’ll want to use to style your hair into just about any hairstyle you choose to wear throughout your trip. Pack a lightweight boar bristle brush, which is easy to travel with, and glide it through dry hair before styling for a soft and shiny finish.

5. Stylers

Pack the travel-sized version of your favorite styler whether it’s a hair oil, mousse, gel or hairspray. If you’re looking to pack just one styling product that can help tame flyaways, add shine and control your hair, opt for a hair serum that you can use on wet or dry hair. Try the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serumwhich can help to eliminate frizz, add shine and leave your hair looking and feeling smooth.
