3 Holiday Hair Essentials Worth Lugging Along

I’ve narrowed down my holiday hair products to the bare essentials.

Moroccanoil Light, Batiste Dry Shampoo and a big ol’ Wool floppy hat.

That’s it!


I cannot live without Moroccanoil Light.

Seriously, it’s the best invention ever – and while there are other hair oils out there (and so many of them are fab), I love my Moroccanoil!

I have the “big boy” (aka full sized bottle)  sitting on my dressing table, and I like to keep this baby bottle in my travel bag, to make sure I don’t ever leave it behind. It’s happened before and lets just say, I did not have a good hair day!

Then, my just-in-case hair essential is Batiste Dry Shampoo. It’s just one of those products… you never know when you’ll need it.

On holiday anything can happen… hotel has no hot water, you oversleep and can’t wash your hair, (or another drama) and lets face it, nobody likes to go through the day with dirty, stringy hair!

These are also sold in miniatures (and different scent options) so they make for the perfect little travel companions.

And last but not least, my big ol Wool Floppy Hat!


I’m very much a hat-on-holiday kinda girl, because they protect your hair and face from the sun, but also add that extra element of glam – to even, your beach ensemble.

The wool floppy hat is very chic and trendy and strangely enough, even in 29 degree weather, my head didn’t feel too hot.

This baby is new to my collection, but will certainly be essential holiday hat because, come rain, shine or cold, the Wool Floppy Hat is there for you. Granted, it won’t keep your head dry in hectic, stormy weather, but a little drizzle won’t stand a chance!

    Definitely going to look in for the Batiste. Hearing such great reviews all over.

      Batiste is FAB! My favourite one from their range is the one for Brunettes as it has a slight brown tint. I haven’t found it in the mini version yet, but it’s available in the full size product.

    Do you apply the Morrocanoil at the ends of the hair or all over? Does it not make yur hair greasy?

      Hi Maria. I use it only on the ends of my hair to smooth out the spilt ends. I use the light version as my hair is quite fine and straight, but for coarser hair the original is probably better to use.
