Travelling – what hair products do you need during your travels

One of the main reasons I love Christmas is that I get to go home and do a bit of travelling. Even though it is travelling back home it is still very exciting for me. However, with my recent trip to Japan and upcoming holiday preparing key hair products is a must.

Of course, I would always take shampoo with me, this time I am taking Philip Kingsley itchy/flaky scalp shampoo (review coming soon!). However, I also need some good styling products because I am obsessed with curling my hair.

I bet you already know this product and I reviewed it before but Redken Pillow proof dry shampoo is a game changer. A little secret, back at home I really like to ask my mum to braid my hair and you know braids are always better on second or third-day hair. Therefore, dry shampoo can soak up grease from the roots and give some volume for gorgeous braid.

My another trusty is Nexxus serum. During my travelling time in Japan, Nexxus came all the way with me. It is such a versatile product as it works great 0n wet and dry hair. This serum adds moisture, strength, and elasticity to my hair. Also, whenever my hair is all over the place I like to add a few drops and somehow it just looks better. Also, VOGUE editor Sarah Harris swears by this product, which makes me love  Nexxus even more.

Styling products know becoming my good friends. Since I can remember I loved voluminous curls or nice beachy waves, yet I always felt lazy/not talented to achieve that look. However, since I submitted my PhD I gave myself a promise to focus more on and more on styling my hair. Recently I got ghd curling thong, which I am loving and really trying to improve my skills in styling my hair. I tried several curl hold sprays and ghd products are my favorite as they don’t make my hair feel heavy or sticky. In case you wondering how ghd work check out this post.

Personally, whenever I am going away, whether back home or across the world I do want to have a great hair day. Therefore, I always think about having clean hair and maintaining the strength of my hair. Also, whether I am going to style my hair and if I need any help in keeping my hair in shape.

    I love the sound of the Nexxus serum! I’ll need to check it out 🙂

    I always get so overwhelmed by packing that I don’t tend to really bring anything for my hair! But then I get to the destination and wish I could style my hair and all I have is a brush haha. Will definitely be referencing this next time I travel!

    • I am the same, I always overwhelmed with packing the right clothes and other essentials, but also hair has become big priority in the last few years and honestly these sort of products always come with me! xx

  • Michelle Perticarari

    This post came just at the right time! I’m about to travel and needed to think on what to bring with me. Also, just cut my hair (like 30cms 😩) and I feel like I don’t know how to style it anymore. So frustrating!

    • Where are you travelling? Maybe somewhere hot and escaping winter? You could definitely take some hair oil or protein product to protect against moisture loss. Wow that is a drastic change, good for you! I really like short hair being slightly waved and maybe putting some texture spray to make it more “messy”? xx

      • Michelle Perticarari

        I’m a little scared of the texture spray because I feel like it will have too much volume but I might try and see how it goes. Definitely a big change and some days I regret it a bit, but it was all for a good cause!

        • What cause it was for? Go you!!! If you worried about texture spray and you already have big volume then I would just maybe curl it slight to have lose waves and add some heat protection spray so the hair is not damaged and it holds the hair well ! x

          • Michelle Perticarari

            Thank you! Any recommendations on a good curling iron that doesn’t break the bank? I already have one but the curls I get are a little small for my length now (worked when I had longer hair!).
            And I donated it to Little princess trust 😊 an organisation that makes wigs for children that have lost their hair!

          • You are so kind, literally you gave the best Xmas present to children!!! <3
            About curling irons very much depends how thick is your hair, I know for some of my friends Revlon curling irons work pretty well, which I think are price friendly:)

          • Michelle Perticarari

            Awesome, I’ll take a look 😊

  • Dina ADina

  • I would love to try GHD hair products! Thanks for sharing this post lovely xx

  • I think I will be needing Nexxus serum for my up coming trips. Sometimes you just cant properly style your hair.
