TSA friendly Hair Care



Hair Care– I don’t mess around hair care when I travel. Bottom line, my hair needs to be frizz-free. If you’re like me and have frizzy hair, check out the anti-frizz shampoo and conditioner by Colorproof, along with the brands Extreme Shine Treatment oil. Your hair will be on point and the weather will have to go pick on someone else’s hair.

 Skincare– Having skincare that is TSA friendly is a necessity if your weekend travel plans include flying. There is always a chance your bags will get lost, and losing your skincare essentials is a beauty addict’s nightmare. For skincare that travels well, try the Korres Pomegranate Grenade cleansing wipesKorres Black Pine night cream, and the Boscia Clear Complexion Blotting Wipes. Bottom line: your face will love you.

Cosmetics– For a quick and casual weekend trip, it’s best to set your beauty-product hoarding tendencies to the side and try to keep your cosmetics to a minimum. Call me crazy, but really, you only need concealer, mascara and lipstick as your absolute must-have cosmetic essentials. For a simple look, use the mineral fusion lip crayon on your lips and cheeks. Conceal blemishes and dark circles with the Temptu concealer, and bring out your eyes with the Too Faced, Better Than Sex Mascara.

Etc.– Don’t forget to pack a small hand cream like this citrus scented hand cream by Jurlique; this stuff smells dreamy. Also, hair bands seem to lose themselves always, so just bring a plethora. Finally, keep your teeth in top shape with the Dentek brush + Floss Travel Kit. It has everything you need, in an easy-to-pack, dental kit.


Enjoy your last bit of summer and say hello to the beginning of fall.

    Love your picks! I need to try that hand cream.

  • I have to travel with my own haircare, too – getting stuff for this mane on the fly just doesn’t, well, fly! lol. I think it would be a struggle for me to leave town with just a mascara, lippie, and concealer – I carry about 10 lippies in my purse all the time!
