Gym bag essentials are a necessity year-round. Chances are, you don’t have your own locker at your gym, so if you’re going to tote around a bag you want it to have just a few things, but definitely the right things. We peeked into our very own Head of Marketing’s gym bag to scour the essentials she keeps in her bag. Even if you aren’t a super avid gym-goer like Jennifer, these products will work to your benefit in and out of the weight room.
Invisibobble: Knots, headaches, and hair fall out is all a thing of the past! The Invisibobble is the only hair tie you’ll ever need. Featured in our August box, these definitely won’t go down the rabbit hole that the rest of your hair elastics disappear to.
Ouidad Hair Care: If you have curly hair, you know it needs special attention. To tame her mane, Jennifer uses a variety of Ouidad’s haircare. Their travel size kit is perfect for your gym bag, travel bag, or well, any bag.
