Well, I’m preparing to celebrate my Golden Birthday in Hawaii (by the time you read this I will be in Hawaii…Hallelu!). Did you know there are natural hair brands that make TSA approved 2-oz products? I wanted to share my TOP 10 must have items as a traveling naturalista (pictured above).
- Bobby Pins
You will need LOTS of these. When my twist is 3-4 days old I will lean towards a twist and tuck style. Bobby pins are needed to perfect the twist and tuck style and any other creative roll tuck style. Bobby pins are also great for stretching my twists at night. This requires pinning twist on the left side of my head to the right side of my head and vice versa.
Yes, I have to have my lovely head wraps from The Wrap Life. When I want my twist to set a little longer for a fabulous twist out later that night, I can use a headwrap to spice up my look and hide my twists during daytime hours.
Now, this goes in my carry-on. Lol As soon as I get on the plane I can guarantee you I will be knocked out. I will whip out my silk bonnet with the quickness to protect my tresses while catching a snooze. Ain’t no shame in my bonnet game!
4. Wide tooth comb

A nice bristled brush is needed to smooth my edges for the perfect puff, bun or top knot. It helps me accomplish a very polished look oppose to the messy bun.
6. Long elastic band
This will be used to make a ponytail, classic bun or a puff. This can also be used to make a half up, half down top knot bun. This is definitely important if you want to switch things up a bit and not just rock twist outs your entire vacation. Be creative. Try something new. Live a little!
7. Tree Naturals Natasha’s Whipped Growth Butter
When going to a hot climate like Hawaii making sure my hair is moisturized is very important. This hair butter is great for my twist outs and providing long-lasting moisture. (Check out my review of this product here)
8. Farasue’s Garden Ends Butter*
Moisture, moisture, moisture. This ends butter is great for making sure the oldest part of my hair gets the moisture needed to remain healthy. Not to mention it smells awesome! If you love the smell of peppermint…you will love Farasue’s Garden products.
9. Farasue’s Garden Liquid Sunshine*
This product is great for massaging your scalp and providing the best shine. If you hair ever looks dull, this is your go-to product. It’s guaranteed to make you and your hair smile.
10. Farasue’s Garden Hair Garden Fertilizer*
This product is also great for scalp massages. The Hair Garden Fertilizer focuses more on stimulating circulation to the scalp to promote hair growth. This product doubles as a great heat protectant due to its Grapeseed oil ingredients.
*The best part is All of Farasue’s Gardens products comes in TSA approved 2-oz size bottles.
