Most Wanted Travel Essentials For Hair

My least favourite part about packing for a trip is trying to figure out what I’ll need for my hair. Is it going to be humid? Dry? Windy? But I’ve found some products that make it really easy to have a good hair day, every day of you’re away.
Tangle Teezer Compact Styler in Gold Rush

There’s nothing better than a brush you can throw in your purse, especially when it comes with a cover that keeps it safe from whatever’s lurking in there. And the Tangle Teezer’s mini Compact Styler is the perfect brush for travelling. It’s gentle, effective and comes in a bunch of super cute designs and colours.

A lot of hotels have blow dryers in their bathrooms but this Sephora brand mini dryer is better than what you’ll find in most. Because it’s ionic, you can blow dry your hair in half the time and get rid of a lot of your frizz for smooth hair. In theory you can use this anywhere in the world but I have heard of some European outlets making it short out, so you might want to keep this one in North America.
Moroccanoil Jetsetter Set

There’s never a question that if I’m travelling, I’m taking my Moroccanoil treatment with me. This time the shampoo, conditioner and Intense Hydrating Mask are coming along. With all my basic hair needs covered in one set, it’ll make my life a lot easier.

Sometimes you want to go for different styles while you’re away and this travel kit from Drybar will make it really simple. With The Chaser Shine Cream, Mai Tai Spritzer Sea Salt Spray and Triple Sec 3-in-1 all included, you can really get any look you want. And the name is so great.

Drybar Blonde Ale Collection

It feels like my hair gets blonder on it’s own every summer and thanks to the balayage highlights I just got, my hair is pretty blonde. But every fall my hair gets a little dull and the brightness fades. Enter Drybar’s Blonde Ale collection. This purple shampoo and conditioner are supposed to keep your blonde bright and I got them just in time.
Blonde Ale Brightening Shampoo

This shampoo is PURPLE. I know purple is good for blondes but this is so bright I was wondering what colour my hair would be when I got out of the shower. I’ve never used a shampoo where literally a drop is enough to get a good lather going. My hair doesn’t feel stripped after I wash (probably thanks to the keratin) and the ‘Sensual Woods’ fragrance smells pretty fantastic.
Blonde Ale Brightening Conditioner

I usually expect conditioners to be pretty thick and this one really isn’t. But it gets my hair really moisturized which is so important to someone with any kind of colour in their hair. This purple wasn’t nearly quite as shocking and it has the same scent as the shampoo (Sensual Woods has notes of ginger, mint and sandalwood).
Blonde Ale Brightening Cream

Blonde Ale Brightening Cream isn’t purple! But it’s a pearly white that really makes my hair silky and soft. It gets rid of the worst of the frizz but on really humid days I have to mix it with other products.

Considering Drybar just focuses on blowouts and styling (they’re finally opening a Canadian location!), I’m really impressed at how great this collection is. Does it make my hair brighter? Ask me in October when we don’t have sun all day.
