From exploding shampoo bottles to long luggage searches, keeping your hair looking fresh during travel can be a nightmare. At Spring & Vine, we’re making the stressful packing process easier, because you should be able to travel with peace of mind.

Hack #1: Reach for the bar.

How much shampoo can I bring on a plane? Can I pack shampoo in my luggage? Is it worth the extra space it takes up in my suitcase? If these questions have every crossed your mind, we have one super simple solution: use a shampoo bar. One small bar has the same number of uses as an entire 12.6-ounce bottle of shampoo, so whether you’re staying overnight or for the whole the month, you won’t run out.

Hack #2: Invest in eco-friendly reusable bottles.

For any toiletries that don’t come in bar form, look for TSA-compliant bottles (3.4 ounces or less) made of recycled materials. They may be a little pricier than the airport-ready bottles you can find in a drugstore, but they’ll last significantly longer and they’ll be friendlier on the environment.

Hack #3: Leave the heat at home.

We all know heat makes our hair look great short-term, but it can cause damage long term. There’s never a better time to ditch the hair dryer than when you’re traveling. You’ll be able to pack lighter and feel freer – and you hair will thank you for the break.
