The best haircare minis for your next roadtrip

We don’t know about you, but lugging around a giant 1L bottle of shampoo while we’re on holiday is the stuff of literal nightmares.
Lucky for us, a lot of our favourite haircare formulations are available in handy travel sizes. So leave the big value bottles at home for your next trip and add these six super cute minis to your kit instead. That way you can save the suitcase space for all of the outfits you’re going to pack and probably never wear...
Here’s what we’re packin’ the next time we hit the road.
VIRTUE Recovery Shampoo
Treat hair to a gentle sulphate-free cleanse with this recovery shampoo that repairs and nourishes parched strands for smooth, sleek lengths. Enriched with first-of-its-kind Alpha-Keratin 60ku, this teeny, tiny offering conditions as it cleanses, repairing damage and rehydrating hair.
ELEVEN Keep My Colour Blonde Shampoo
Having blonde tresses is a full-time job, which means just because you’re on vacation, it doesn’t mean you can get lax with your haircare routine. Enter: ELEVEN Keep My Colour Blonde Shampoo, a toning shampoo that takes down unwanted brassiness, while strengthening and nourishing hair for standout shine and colour.
O&M Hydrate and Conquer Conditioner
Travelling almost always has a drying effect on hair and skin (we’re pointing the finger at air-conditioning and not drinking enough water in transit), but we’re combatting this with this antioxidant-rich pick. Plus, enhanced with UV protection, this is a winner for damaged, sun-drenched strands in need of some extra lovin’.
CHRISTOPHE ROBIN Hydrating Melting Mask With Aloe Vera Hair Mask
We want speedy, effective prods when we’re on the road — less time in the shower means more time for activities amiright? That’s why we love this express mask from Christophe Robin. Simply saturate the ends of hair with this aloe-vera infused offering for just five minutes and rinse to reveal softened strands. Too easy.
OUAI Hair Oil
Add shine, minimise frizz and seal the ends of your hair with this small but mighty hair oil. African galanga root extract, ama, borage and baobab oils help to prevent colour-fading and protect against sun damage caused by pesky UV rays. Hot tip: Work the oil into strands and scalp before you go to bed for a hydrating masking sesh while you sleep.
Klorane Oat Milk Dry Shampoo
A must-have in any haircare routine, adding a mini-version of dry shampoo to your suitcase is a no-brainer in our opinion. Enjoy Klorane’s cult-fave soothing oat-milk formula in a handy 50mL size. Adios oily hair!
