One Simple Eco-Friendly Haircare Tool for Traveling


These multi-purpose, eco-friendly organic cotton lightweight towels are a must for the mindful female traveler.

Eco-friendly haircare is a new area of interest for me, and it can be especially tricky when trying to pack light. ¬†Every traveler can agree that less is more – as in less stuff in your luggage. So many times I have found myself in a dilemma over what to eliminate from a suitcase, or stuck with too much stuff to travel freely around. It’s pretty much one of my largest complaints when it comes to being a free-spirit on the road.

The older I become, beauty and eco-friendly hair-care especially plays a leading role, requiring a little more TLC than my more youthful years ūüėČ ¬†Needless to say, one of my latest discoveries has been a godsend: the¬†GOTS-certified organic cotton and ethically¬†made ‘tee-shirt’ towels by Lakeshore Dry Goods. This puppy is your new bff and the single most eco-friendly way to keep your hair healthy while traveling.

What makes for an eco-friendly haircare product?

  • Made with GOTS-certified organic cotton and ethically¬†made in NYC area.
  • Fabric is interlock knit cotton, which is used for high-end t-shirts.¬† It won’t stretch out of shape, has a smooth surface on both sides and is very absorbent. I was pretty amazed at how much water this thing soaked up real quick – WAY better and faster than my regular body towels.
  • The towels are beneficial for all hair types – you’ll notice less tangles and breakage/split ends and less¬†frizz.¬† All of these benefits mean you can cut out (go natural) or at least lessen hair products.
  • Helps hair dry quickly (another earth-friendly benefit is less energy with no or very little hair dryer use)
  • Lightweight and the perfect size so it doesn’t pull on your hair when you wrap it up! I can’t believe I have been using a regular body towel all these years as using Lakeshore’s towel feels like a feather compared to a dumbbell
  • I’ve used the towel for a quick cover-up, to dry off after a regular shower, and even to lay on at the beach and for exercising.

Plus I LOVE how it cuts down on getting-ready time – ¬†I’ve never been a fan of ‘doing my hair’ and this makes the prep that much easier, truly. And at only $24 (small) or $26 (medium – which is what I have) I suggest having more than one; it’s nice to have an extra for any other use cases! It’s super compact and the towel also dries itself dries quickly which is another reason why it’s a great item to have on the go. Who has time to wait for things to dry when you have places to be?
