TRAVEL BEAUTY ESSENTIALS

NAME: John Frieda Frizz-Ease Thermal Protection Hair Serum
WHY: A summer staple (that meets airline regulations) that no woman should ever be without. Harry uses this on every job, especially those in the summer months. Hair takes a beating in the summer with the elements --sun, surf, sand etc -- but this protective formula safeguards strands and shields styles from the damaging effects of heat styling and UV exposure.
PRICE: $ 10

NAME: Bop Bijoux Boho Tie-Dye Hair Ties
WHY: These hair ties are perfect for the pony tails and chignons of summer -- the elastic makes them easy on your hair and they make a fun, trendy fashion statement -- plus tie-dye is a huge trend for summer. These also double as a bracelet so even when hair is down you're never without an elastic.
PRICE: $45 for set of 18

NAME: Root Awakening Health Boosting Detangling Spray
BLURB: Summer is the perfect time to let your hair relax and get back to the healthy strands you were born with. This daily leave-in spray nourishes from roots to ends, delivering essential vitamins and effective levels of natural Eucalyptus; proven to improve hair's strength and visible health. Natural eucalyptus and peppermint oil help stimulate the scalp with a cool, tingling sensation
PRICE: $6.50

NAME: John Frieda Root Awakening Strength Restoring Shampoo & Conditioner
WHY: Spend the week before you go away treating your hair with a Root Awakening regimen for visibly healthier, stronger hair with greater shine, bounce and manageability, so hair is easier to style while you're on the road. This shampoo and conditioner duo is proven to give you stronger, more manageable hair in just seven days. Natural eucalyptus and peppermint oil help stimulate the scalp with a cool, tingling sensation
PRICE: $6.50 (each)

NAME: Amika Mini Flat Iron
WHY: While not everyone straightens their hair each day, almost everyone is victim to a flyaway or two ? traveling with a mini flat iron can do wonders for you while you're on the road. They are ultra portable and perfect for quick touch ups ? certainly not designed to straighten your entire head of hair, they are perfect for times when you're in a pinch and need to polish your style.
PRICE: $95 Online at loveamika.com

NAME: Champion wide tooth comb
BLURB: You should always rinse hair off after taking a dip in the pool or ocean, and apply a product like the frizz-ease thermal serum to continue protecting hair. Even distribution is key ? using a wide tooth comb will ensure that the product makes it from root to tip and doesn't clump in hair and cause build up on your scalp.
PRICE: $10.50

NAME: Nalgene Reusable Containers
BLURB: The worst part about traveling is leaving the products you use at home behind ? pick up reusable containers so you can bring your own products as the complimentary ones found in hotels are usually way too harsh.
PRICE: $9 for a set of 8
