I am literally counting down the days until I head to Lanzarote! I have never been before and I’m so excited to explore somewhere new and enjoy some good food/cocktails! I’m going with one of my best friends who I love spending time with and we always have such a giggle. Can you tell how much I’m looking forward to this trip??!!
One of the things I love most about going away is packing. I love making check lists, buying new clothes and I can’t resist anything that is travel sized – so cute! I’m going to be doing a few posts about what is my suitcase, my carry on, my make up bag etc but I am dedicating this post to Aussie because they are my shampoo and conditioner holiday lifesavers! I bought these three cute little travel sized Aussie products from Superdrug (£2.00 each and they were on a 3 for 2 offer – total bargain!). I got the Miracle Moist Shampoo, Miracle Moist Conditioner and 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor Deep Conditioner.
How cute do they look?!! I love these little minis! Each one is 75ml and will definitely see me through the week long trip. The shampoo and conditioner are both lovely, containing Macadamia Nut Oil which really helps to smooth and condition my hair. I have really fine, dry hair (which is coloured) and every time I travel, my hair becomes so dry (almost crispy!) after a day in the sun unless I use the correct products. This shampoo and conditioner combo are amazing! I really like the consistency of these: not too thick but really creamy which is perfect for my hair type. They add much needed moisture to my hair and leave it soft, sleek and healthy looking.
I’m also taking the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor Deep Conditioner on holiday which I will use two or three times during this trip when my hair needs a little extra TLC. After a few days in the sun, my hair tends to become a little unruly without being given a little bit of love. What I really like about this product is how good it smells! It is so fresh and not at all offensive (I am not keen on strong, dominating scents). I sometimes find some deep conditioners to be so thick and heavy that they weigh down my hair (end up having to rewash it!) but I don’t have that problem here. This deep conditioner contains Australian Balm Mint and it really adds body and life back into my hair, which definitely makes it more manageable! After using this, my hair is so easy to curl or straighten and it makes my hair so shiny – I love it!
So yep, my three trusty Aussie friends are coming with me on this trip! I have a couple of Philip Kingsley buddies coming along too (which I will do another post about) and combined, these products all really protect my hair from those ‘holiday elements’ (sun, sea, and chlorine) as well as improving the overall condition of my hair.
So that’s my Aussie Haircare Travel Essentials that I’m taking with me to Lanzarote! Have you tried any of these products? What are your travel haircare essentials? Let me know in the comments below or you can tweet me @thingsarahloves. Back tomorrow with another post! Have a great day!
