There are few feelings that compare to the pure joy of booking a vacation. After weeks of eyeballing the airline email in your inbox and checking weather forecasts every hour or so, you’ll finally drag out that suitcase and start packing.
There’s only one problem: In a carry on suitcase world, what’s a woman to do about her cosmetics? Just call us trip advisors, because we’ve pulled together the best oils for dry hair that happen to also be a travel friendly size. Clocking in at just a few ounces each, we have three formulas from the L'Oréal portfolio of brands that can help make your vacation hair all the more manageable and social media worthy.
Unlike heavier formulas, hair oils help make hair appear smoother and shinier. In some case, they’re even optimized for heat styling. Above all else, however, we’re loving the heady, salon-like fragrance of L'Oréal Professionnel’s Mythic Oils. Why even bother to pack a separate scent?
L'Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil Huile Originale
This professional-grade nourishing oil is a multitasking powerhouse in a glass bottle. Formulated with natural argan oil, this lightweight oil is a professional multi-tasking nourishing oil, with heat protection up to 446 degrees Fahrenheit. We love this formula, the stylist’s secret to luxuriously nourished, shiny hair without weighing hair down.
While relaxing in your tropical resort hotel room (we’d also settle for modest but clean French hostel), warm one to two pumps in the palms of your hands. Apply evenly from mid-lengths to ends. Do not rinse. Look for this product at a salon near you.

Hair that’s sensitive or breakage-prone is no joke, particularly when you’re far away from your hair stylist.
