You've had two places for your extra hair products to live all along! Simply slide a bottle of your favorite moisturizer or curl enhancer in to the soles of your shoes and voila: more space!

However, be sure to mix well since oil tends to separate from heavier products and keep your cocktail in a cool place after reaching your destination.
