Women’s Toiletry Travel Kit – What to Pack + Tips For Carry-on Travel

Whether you are going away for the weekend or beginning your lifelong dream of long-term travel, any trip requires a toiletry kit! We all have personal hygiene needs (especially us women) and after traveling full-time for the past 1.5 years, I have learned so much about the travel essentials you need to have in your toiletry bag! Lots of the information I share in this video is applicable to anyone who is travelling irrespective of gender, but a couple of things will be most useful for people who identify as women or those who menstruate.

During our first year of travel my partner and I traveled with just carry-on bags, which meant we had to be really careful about what we were taking with us, especially when it came to personal hygiene products. As someone with long hair, it quickly became evident that I would have to find a way to manage my hair-care needs in a way that didn't require me to carry-on a ton of liquid shampoos, conditioners, and hair products. Traveling with carry-on also means no aerosol containers – so I couldn't pack my hair spray or dry shampoo either! BUT, I found alternatives to these things that worked for carry-on!

My toiletry kit could definitely be more minimal (I wouldn't claim to be a minimalist!), but overall I have managed to find a good routine with these personal hygiene products and the way I organize them. I share all of this as well as the toiletry kit bags I store everything in, in this video!
