Pack like a Pro | Solidifying your Toiletries, literally.
As far as maintenance levels go, I am the lowest of low maintenance. If it were up to me, I would just jump into the ocean everyday, rinse off in some freshwater and be done with it. So this is not for most people, but if you are packing for a quick hassle-free adventure weekend away, this will be helpful.
When I am buying toiletries I am always thinking about the following things:
- Can I bring it on the plane?
- Is it natural/organic?
- Can I buy in bulk and then refill my own travel size bottles?
- How much space/weight is it going to take up?
Everything that I use in the bathroom fits into my Ethnotek Padu Dopp bag.
I have gone through a few different types of shampoo, conditioner, leave-in oil combos; and for someone who has damaged hair, this is what I travel with.
- Lush Godiva Shampoo Bar in accompanying Round Tin
- Ethique have both shampoo and conditioner and everything else!
- Eco Store bar soaps or anything organic or handmade I find along the way. Stored in a Muji containe
- OR Dr. Bronner's Liquid Soap stored in a Muji bottle that has lasted me over 2 years
- I wash my face with water and moisturise with coconut oil or Trilogy Roseship Antioxidant+
- Nutiva Coconut Oil or anything organic I find along the way. Stored in a Muji bottle that has lasted me over 2 years.
