Leaving on a jet plane

Off on holiday this summer? We can’t say that we’re not envious. Try our favourite travel essentials to ensure your holiday hair routine is on point…

Lisse Luxe White Front[1][2]

1. Aquis Lisse Luxe Hair Towel, £30

If you’ve been laying in the sun, chances are your hair has been subjected to some sun damage – and it gets worse if you’ve been spending time in the sea or swimming pool (don’t get us started on the negative effects of chlorine and salt water!). Give it some love with an Aquis hair towel, which softly dries your hair without damaging the cuticles. Simply wrap your hair up in the special Aquitex fabric, do your thing for a few minutes, then remove the towel once it feels damp.



2. Alterna Bamboo Smooth On The Go Travel Set, £30

Alterna’s travel kits are ideal for those of you who don’t want to take your full-size products on holiday (we all know the frustration of a shampoo explosion), or for those who are traveling with hand luggage only as each bottle is under 100ml. The Smooth On The Go set is ideal for combating frizz for smooth and healthy-looking tresses!


3. Ego Trip, £44

With a compact hairdryer, straightener and diffuser, this set has everything you need to help create the perfect holiday hairstyle. Each tool is lightweight, so you won’t have to worry about going over the weight limit, and utilises tourmaline and HW2 technology. Best of all, these tools feature dual voltage, so you won’t have to worry about bringing converters with you!

Phil Smith

4. Phil Smith minis, from £2.50

Your favourite Phil Smith products are available in handy travel sizes, from this fabulous curl cream, to shine mists, to Argan oil. They’re extremely affordable, effective, and cruelty-free! What’s not to like?

Vita Coco

5. Vita Coco Coconut Oil 50ml, £2.99

Here at Hair HQ, we can’t stop cooing over how adorable these tiny pots of coconut oil are. Whether you’re nourishing your hair from the inside by popping a teaspoonful of this oil into your food, or applying it externally as a nourishing hair masque, this 50ml pot makes it super easy to get your coconut fix.

Tangle Angel


6. Tangle Angel Baby, £4.95

Created by celebrity and royal hairdresser Richard Ward, the Tangle Angel is a fun take on the detangling brush concept, and this mini keyring version is even better! At just 83mm in length, this brush will keep your hair tangle free on the go – plus, it’s anti-static, water-resistant, heat-resistant, and features anti-bacterial bristles.
