SOLID Hair Care for Adventurous Souls:)

I was always a little shy to try solid shampoo/conditioner while traveling because I thought there was no way it would work for my fine (but a lot of it...if that even makes sense?) hair. Then one of you suggested Gemz in a recent Facebook post! After several uses, now I've got the inside scoop on a game-changing hair care duo that might just change your travel hair game.

So, you're a carry on only type: You're packing for an exotic getaway, and the struggle becomes very real when it comes to cramming all your beauty essentials into that tiny, zipped-up pouch. Introducing....Gemz hair care. These solid shampoo and conditioner discs are compact, TSA-friendly, and will save precious space in your liquids bag.

Now, let's talk about the perks of traveling with a solid hair care routine. First off, say goodbye to those pesky liquid restrictions at the airport. No more pouring shampoo and conditioner into tiny bottles or playing a game of "Will it leak?" in your luggage. Gemz are solid, mess-free, and won't leave you with a shampoo-scented explosion in your suitcase. Trust me, your clothes will thank you!

These solid gems are not only practical but also have a heart of gold when it comes to sustainability. Gemz is committed to saving our beautiful planet, and their sustainability program is a force to be reckoned with. In addition to water conservation efforts, they offer "ZERO-WASTE recycling, guaranteeing that every single GEM you return will never end up in a landfill or the ocean, in fact it will be turned into reusable plastic". Read more about their commitment to sustainability here.

Now, let's talk about variety, because we all know that no two heads of hair are exactly the same. Gemz understands that we all have unique hair types and needs, and they've got a range of products that cater to everyone—from the wavy wonders to the curly queens and the sleek-straight goddesses. All of their products are safe for color treated hair as well. I chose three products to test out...two shampoos ( "Up All Day" Volume Shampoo and "Pure Scalp" Shampoo) as well as one conditioner ("Light as Air"). I was absolutely stunned that such a little pod could lather up and cleanse all of my hair and then some...honestly I probably could have used half of the pod for my hair (just below shoulder length). My hair felt squeaky clean after and I didn't notice any buildup. My hair felt clean for several days after washing as well!

Travel-friendly, sustainable, and available in a variety of formulas tailored to your unique hair type- we have struck GOLD (follow me for more terrible jokes;))
