For travel and beauty junkies alike, the thought of leaving all of your beloved hair products behind while you’re vacationing can be absolutely daunting. While you’d love to squeeze your favorite shampoos, leave-ins, and stylers into your carry-on, the reality is that you just can’t take everything. In 2019, we want our beauty products to be effective and travel-friendly.

When you’re packing for your next getaway, consider leaving your clunky shampoo bottle behind and opt for a shampoo bar instead. They’re all-natural shampoos in solid form that look exactly like regular bar soap. The compact formula makes them easy to store—not to mention the fact that they can outlast many liquid shampoos.

Ready to give shampoo bars a try? Below, we’ve rounded up the 10 best formulas you need to know about now.
