Traveling and having good hair days don’t always go hand in hand. With all the moving around, going out, and sometimes, extreme temperatures, trying to keep your hair manageable, cute, and most importantly, healthy, can be a hassle. Fortunately, there are some God send products out there that can make your bad hair days on your trip disappear.

1. ALTERNA Caviar CC Cream for Hair 10-in-1 Complete Correction

This product is something I’ve used on trips and when I’m at home. This CC cream delivers what its name says – complete correction. It’s a leave in product that adds moisture, shine, UV and heat protection, leaving your hair looking healthy and hydrated. It’s not a heavy product, so it can either be used on its own or with other styling products.

2. Frizz Ease Extra Strength Six Effects+ Serum

If you battle tough frizz, this product eliminates frizz, and smooths even the toughest, frizziest hair.

This spray gives you beachy waves, with or without the beach. It works on both wet or dry hair, giving your hair a tousled, yet relaxed look. Too much of the product might dry out your hair because of the sea salt, but luckily you only need a few sprays to achieve a beachy look.

4. Wen Replenishing Treatment Mist

I use all of Wen’s products, but the Replenishing Treatment Mist is my favorite. The mist repairs your hair in a few sprays, and helps nourish your hair if it experiences any dryness because of the different climate you might be experiencing. It’s also proven to be a quick fix any time I’ve had a bad hair day. Formulated with argan oil, shea butter, and botanical extracts, it gives your hair the much needed nourishment it needs in an easy way when you’re on the go.

5. It’s A 10 Deep Conditioner + Keratin

When you’re on a trip, a deep conditioning treatment can make all the difference. It’ll repair most of the damage done to your hair, and most of them only take a few minutes! This one has keratin in it, ensuring that your hair will come out healthier, repaired, and stronger than before.

6. Shu Uemura Art of Hair Volume Maker

A dry shampoo is a must while going away, for all the days you were too busy to wash your hair! This one conveniently has a brush attached, making it easy to apply, and is compact so it’s easy to bring along. It absorbs oil quickly, without leaving your hair too dry, and adds much needed volume to greasy hair.
