So what do you do when you have to take a short trip? Go with all your heavy bottles of product,  go with none and leave your strands to the grace of God or improvise? I would improvise. I usually put a little of everything I need in smaller bottles. The bottles are usually random bottles in different sizes and don't usually look so cute in my bag. In answer to a prayer I don't remember praying, I found these bottles at Blenco supermarket Ajah:

Cute or nah? I love them, especially the spr…
