It’s no secret that many of us yearn for the sunshine of a spring break vacation after long, cold, dark winters. Spring break is really the kickoff to summer, and we’re here for it! 

If fun in the sun is a high-ranking activity for your spring break, don’t forget to pack a few goodies to keep your hair and skin healthy. After all, the healthier your hair and skin, the better they look in all those vacay photos!

How exactly do you protect your hair and skin while on vacation, especially if you’re trying to configure your luggage?! Don’t worry - we’ve got some tips and tricks to save the day (and save the vacay)!

Cover It!

If it’s covered, it’s more protected from the harmful UV rays and other oxidation agents. For your hair, a sunhat is perfect for protecting against the sun and wind. It pulls double duty by protecting your face, too!

Wearing a scarf or bandana will also protect your hair and scalp. Scarves and bandanas are easier to pack into your luggage, alleviating a bit of the stress associated with packing your necessities. 

If you’re rocking some color instead of your natural hue, covering your hair also helps protect your color from the harmful rays of the sun.

As far as your skin’s concerned, when in doubt, COVER IT! Loose, lightweight sleeves and pants will help protect your skin from sun. Added bonus: loose, long clothing can also protect against bug bites — but we don’t want to talk too much about bug bites during a fun trip!


We’ll say it louder for the people in the back: DON’T SKIP THE SUNSCREEN! The sun damages your skin in so many ways, it’s ridiculous. Wrinkles and spots, to more serious things like certain cancers, are all directly related to sun exposure. 

Sunscreen’s come a long way in the last decade. You can find UV protection in creams, lotions, sprays, and yes, even makeup! 

Pack the Packets!

Malibu C Remedy PacketsYou didn’t think we’d skip our fave products, did you? Our wellness remedies are ideal for traveling. The small, easy-to pack sachets are airplane-approved (they’re dry!).

Sliding a few packets of your favorite remedy into your luggage is ultimately a life hack, especially if you’re going to be in the sun or water. Added bonus: You can use all remedies (except for Scalp Therapy) as a lathering shampoo while you’re away from home. 

Did you know that our two power-packed conditioning treatments come in packets? Replenish Hair Masque is a deep-conditioning, ultra-hydrating conditioner. Miracle Repair is available in original, Scalp, and Blondes, and is a protein reconstructor! These plant-powered formulas give your hair what it needs when it needs it.

Un-Do-Goo, our hydrating, high pH clarifying shampoo also comes  in packets. This intensive formula gently removes product buildup and is    ideal to use before — or after — our remedies!

Looking for a little more convenience? Check out our Mini Rehabs! These small, on-the-go collections contain one remedy packet and one complementing conditioner. They come together in a small box, which makes them perfect for packing!
