If you wish to embrace your natural curls, opt for the Curl Revive.  This serum is a weightier cashmere texture and again is excellent on  ALL  types of naturally curly, wavy, frizzy hair and can be applied to both wet and dry hair. Both award-winning serums have protection against UV assault + anti-color fade + heated tools +humidity.

Do not leave home without them, they will be your saving grace. Reviews will confirm just how efficient these serums really are.

Checklist before departure

Trim ends if necessary and consider giving yourself a hair spa treatment to add the extra nourishment to your hair, wiping out thirsty strands before travel.

Often a hair mask comes in a heavy tub not very practical to travel with, so best to enjoy this moment before you travel. However, if departing for some weeks, then take it with you in the suggested  Iles Spa Pack which has every item one needs including Iles Signature award-winning shampoo and Conditioner.  The pack itself is vegan leather with a waterproof inside, great for travel, and accommodates easily these contents and more.

2. Opt to Embrace Natural Curls

If you have a natural movement in your hair and are heading to hot weather and the seaside, consider our Iles Formula Curl Pack, similar to the Spa pack above but with everything inside to embrace beautiful natural curls. The Pack features  Iles Formula Curl Revive. This pack is for all kinds of hair textures with a natural curl.
