Hello, beautiful people!
Today, I’m writing to you all from Anaheim, CA. I’m here for a week on business, and I don’t know about you, but traveling while curly has always been a little tricky for me, especially when traveling for business. I don’t mind it so much when I’m traveling for leisure, but when I travel for work, I usually have very little time to fuss with my hair. The thing with traveling while curly is I have to haul my entire bathroom cabinet with me, plus a blowdryer and a diffuser. And everyday I have to wake up 40 minutes early to wash, detangle, and diffuse…and mentally prepare for the possibility that my hair might decide to rebel against me (as it often does when I am not home and without a backup plan.) OH! And thanks to the TSA, carrying on my full-size products isn’t an option, and travel size products are no match for my curly mane…soooooo, let’s add $25 to the travel budget. Sounds fun, right? NOT. With all this in mind, I have always decided to straighten my hair when I travel for work…it always felt easier! But, this time around, I committed to not straightening my hair for my trip. I told myself I was going to learn how to manage my curls on the go!
Here’s what I brought with me on my trip…
Cleaning: Ouidad Clear & Gentle Essential Daily Shampoo
Conditioning: Ouidad Balancing Rinse Daily Conditioner and Moisture Lock Leave-in Conditioner
Styling: Ouidad Curl Quencher Hydrafusion Intense Curl Cream, Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel, and Botanical Boost
Tools: Cool Marc Jacobs Tote for carrying and storing all my products, my Ouidad Double Detangler comb, one hair clip, hair ties, and bobby pins in case I need to pull my hair up into a top knot in a pinch.
