Our Favorite Products for Good Hair On-the-Go
Summer is hard enough on our hair as it is. We’re constantly worrying about humidity and frizz in this Southern heat. Throw in our packed schedules full of fun outings and much-needed trips, and there’s a recipe for disaster if we’ve ever seen one. We can’t haul all of our hair products and tools to every place we go, but we also can’t risk going completely without our tried-and-true summer hair necessities that help our locks brave the elements.
The solution? We’ve found the best products in their cutest, compact sizes that will be the saving grace of your summer packing—and they all ring in at 2.5 oz. or less, which will be sure to not hold you up in the security line in the airport! These picks not only are perfect sizes for travel, but they cover the main issues we face in this temperamental Southern summer weather, especially when we’re too busy to fuss too much with our hair. So, you won’t regret picking these travel-sized gems ahead of your next trip (or just to throw in your purse for everyday!).
