A Foolproof Packing List for Summer

In partnership with our friends at AG Hair

It’s tempting to go completely minimalist when you’re packing for a summer getaway. But whether it’s a long-planned trip to Thailand or a spontaneous weekend on the North Fork, bringing a few well-chosen indulgences (we’re thinking a luxurious hair oil, a perfect self-tanner, reef-safe SPF, that sort of thing) can make the whole trip a lot more relaxing. While not exactly maximalist, a few extras should leave you looking and feeling better, both while you’re on vacation and after you’ve returned. A double-conditioning strategy should get your hair in its best shape ever, and a cool new (clean) sunscreen is as practical yet mood-lifting as the perfect-fit swimsuit. The below should just get you started; depending on where you’re going and what you’re doing, you might want to pack even more…
