Vacation Essentials | Hair Edition...

I’m getting ready to go on a much needed holiday and I’m looking forward to some relaxation. Here are a few things that are a must for my vacation needs: Shampoo, Co-Wash Conditioner, Leave-in Conditioner, Moisturizer and Oil.
My Vacation Hair Essentials
[1]   ORS Creamy Aloe Shampoo: Just in case I end up swimming in the pool or sea this shampoo will come in handy, to cleanse my hair.
[2]     Aussie Moist Conditioner: I chose this particular conditioner because it’s so moisturizing and can act for two purposes. 1) As a co-wash conditioner when my hair feels that needed boost of moisture and 2) As a leave in conditioner. I’m killing two birds with one stone lol.
[3]     Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter: This moisturizer is such a staple in my regimen and will be used daily to replenish the moisture lost during the day. I plan to do a lot of sight-seeing.
[4]     Extra Virgin Coconut Oil: I prefer this natural oil because its light and gets the job done effectively. I’ll be using this as a sealant; in addition it adds a lot of shine.

PS: I'll be transporting these hair products in miniature containers because they are too bulky and would take up too much room in my suitcase.
My Vacation Hair Essentials
Bobbi Pins: I’ll be using this to secure my hair while it’s in a bun or pin up hair style.
Ruffles/Scrunchies: To secure my hair when I’m wearing it in a bun or pony tail.
Comb & Brush: These will be used as I see fit.
Head bands: This will help add some character to the front of my hair
Flexi-Rods: I’ll try to throw in some curls to switch up my look.
Head Scarf: I’ll be covering my hair every night.
Banana Clip & Hair Clips: I will be inter changing between these and my scrunchies.

What are some of the key essentials you pack to travel?

Be inspired…


  1. Enjoy your trip! How long will you be gone? My length of stay determines what I take with me. I try my best to NOT wash on vacay. Therefore, I usually only take moisturizer, oil and hair accessories for updos.

    1. I don't plan to wash either but just in case I want to be prepared. I'm off for 2 weeks.

  2. Great picks. I'll definitely be packing my scarf on any getaways x

  3. Looks like you have everything hair related covered Tomes have a great holiday!

  4. This is a great list and visual! I need to take notes because every time I go for vacation, it seems like I'm throwing hair products in my bag at the last minute. I make sure to never forget my bonnet though!

    Enjoy your vacation, love!

  5. I always pack my spritz bottle filled with water and EVOO. Your list is awesome and you're so organized.

    Have the best time on vacation! Can't wait to see pictures :)

  6. That Aussie conditioner is one of my favorite. I love that you pack light for your vacation hair. Who has time for crazy hairstyles on vacation.

    Have fun, bring loads of pics back please :)
