Quite an obvious choice, but fixing whatever type of hairstyle you are looking for is essential. Sleek bangs, voluminous curls or baby hair, you need it in your kit to keep your hair from going wild. Choose a mini size that you can easily put in your bag and travel with it.
2. Dry shampoo
I don’t really know how we lived in an age without dry shampoo. You don’t have to carry it with you every day, but it comes in handy when you’re in a hurry. All the moisture, sweat and pollution can quickly affect freshly washed hair. A good dry shampoo can instantly refresh your hair before you think twice. This will give you a confidence boost ready to take over the rest of your business throughout the day. Try keeping one in your office desk drawer and a mini in your weekend bag so you never get caught off guard.

Using a hair oil or serum is the perfect quick fix you need to have in your kit when you prefer casual and relaxed hairstyles. Even a single drop of oil can work wonders for smoothing hair, split ends and smoothing out strands. Not only does it quench your thirsty hair, but if it smells good, you’ll smell good all day long.
4. Transparent mascara
Don’t you hate that even after hairspray wild strands threaten your trendy hairstyle? This is where a clear mascara or clear brow gel comes in handy. Believe me, it’s not as crazy as it sounds. Simply use the wand to brush off wayward stray animals or shed your baby’s hair in seconds. Plus, it comes in a handy package that’s no problem to carry in your bag. Remember to mark or label it so you don’t reuse it for your eyes.
