But, in this post, I’ll share with you four hairstyling items you can comfortably fit into your travel bag. Here’s what you need to carry:
1. Pocket-Sized Pomade
If you are a fan of Pompadours, Slick-Backs, Comb-Overs, Side-Parts, and Quiffs, then you know the importance of having pomade. It’s a styling product that gives your hair the shine and hold it needs to look nice and fresh all day long.

Anyway, this best hair pomade post from WiseBarber.com has a few travel-size options for you to choose from.
2. Hair Shampoo
We can’t deny the fact that some men still shy away from proper hair care routines. However, today’s stylish gent knows why it’s vital to keep his hair looking healthy, neat, and modish. Basically, choosing the right products makes hair styling and maintenance a walk in the park. Now, an important hair care rule is to shampoo less often when your hair is too dry and more when your hair is too oily. This is why shampoo labels specify dry hair or oily hair. Also, as a pro tip, always go for shampoos that have been proven to be ideal for hair growth.
3. Hair Conditioners
Obviously, after washing your hair with shampoo, it is important to treat it with the right conditioner. Shampoos help to clean off dead skin, dust, sweat, and hair products. Thereafter, a conditioner will soften your hair, making it easy to manage and style. Note that conditioners contain fatty alcohols, oils, thickening agents, and humectants. These agents make the hair fluffier, softer, and flexible. And the best part is that shampoos and conditioners are available in travel sizes.
4. Some Wax. Maybe…?
Ever wondered how people achieve the “sleek, shiny, and styled” hair look? Well, wax is sometimes the answer if you don’t have some pomade with you. It is the ideal product to achieve this look as it enables you to easily shape your hair into any style you want. However, be warned. These products are not suitable for fine and long hair due to their heaviness and high viscosity. And not forgetting the fact that waxed hair is hard to shampoo and wash off.
There are a lot of hair products available for men. And choosing the right ones to take on trips, while using minimal space, has always proven to be difficult. However, this post highlights four of the most important hair care items you can carry easily. Just remember that it is important to choose products that suit your hair type.
