3 Travel Essentials That This Chelsea Hair Salon Swears By, Manhattan, New York

Lugging an arsenal of hair care products in your carry-on bag isn’t practical. On the other hand, globetrotters shouldn’t have to abandon their styling routines every time they travel. That’s why Bloom Beauty Lounge in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood recommends focusing on the essentials. Here are three products stylists at the elite hair salon say deserve a coveted spot in your crowded suitcase.

3 Must-Have Hair Products When Traveling

1. Lavender & Oak Conditioner

hair salonClarissa Malek, the owner of Bloom Beauty Lounge and creator the Lavender & Oak line swears by this organic hair product. “While on vacation, my wavy hair tends to get super dehydrated,” she explains, “so I always travel with this conditioner. I find that I rarely need to shampoo since I’m usually surfing in the ocean every day, so the L&O conditioner detangles my hair and keeps it healthy. I also apply the L&O leave-in to my wet locks to hydrate the hair throughout the day and prevent the salt water from making it impossible to have long hair.”  

2. Kevin Murphy Thick.Again

If Raul Da Luz, the cutting director at this Chelsea hair salon, had room for one product in his suitcase, he would bring Thick.Again by Kevin Murphy. “My main concern is keeping my hair from thinning,” he says, “and Thick.Again is easy to use. Just spray it on your roots and scalp, and go. It’s a natural alternative to other chemical-based DHT blockers.”

If you have colored or dry hair, Da Luz has one more recommendation: Kevin Murphy’s Un.Tangled. “It’s a leave-in conditioner,” the stylist explains. “Spray it into damp, towel-dried hair, and it will replenish moisture and detangle locks.”  

3. Hairstory New Wash

When packing for a trip, Claire Canfield, the co-owner and operations manager at the hair salon, values effortlessness. “I love traveling with New Wash by Hairstory because it’s so simple and efficient,” she explains. “Dry shampoo is good to have on hand too, though. My favorites are Death Valley or Badlands, both by R+CO. I also recommend packing a trial size of Kevin Murphy’s Motion.Lotion for those with curly hairstyles.”   

These stylist-approved products will keep your hair looking and feeling great whether you’re at home or on-the-go. For even more product recommendations, visit Bloom Beauty Lounge online. You can also call the hair salon at (212) 255-9355 to schedule an appointment.
