Traveling with hair products and rebottling gel

On tuesday I will be going out of town for a week. I'm going to be driving so in theory I could bring my 32oz bottle of conditioner, CjCQ, CCCL and 32oz bottle of BSRHG along with my diffuser, blow dryer and microfiber towel. I'll only be washing and restyling my hair once. On all other mornings I'll be using a spray bottle with water and retouching as needed with HETT.

I'm worried about looking high maintenance.

This is high maintenance.

Ever since HETT took out all the extracts I can't use just one product. I have to use all of them for predictable results and I need to look nice next week. I have been wanting to find one product to replace the three that I've been using but now is not the time for that.

How can I take just some BSRHG so that it doesn't dry out before I want to use it? I only need a nickel of the CCCL 2 quarters of CG and a quarter of BSRHG.

I don't want to walk in to the hotel with one bag dedicated to hair products!!

    Whenever I travel I use the little travel-sized bottles you can find at the drugstore or Target - they come empty for you to fill up with your own products and often they come in packs with a squirt bottle, a mini-shampoo style bottle, etc. Usually there's a bottle that's squeezy - that's the bottle I use for gel. They also sell little containers that look like they should hold lip gloss with screw tops - I use those for a little bit of styler. They open and shut like regular-sized containers, so I've never lost anything because it dried up on me.

    If I put in more than I end up using during the trip, I just keep using that little bottle when I get back home until it's empty. They're the right size for air travel, and if they leak you don't have to worry about a ton of wasted product because they're so small!

    Hair type: Fine, fairly porous, shoulder length when curly. Probably a 3a or 3b with tight ringlets now that it's getting longer. Hair loves aloe, hates glycerin.

    Co-Wash: Suave Naturals Aloe and Waterlily (my HG conditioner!)
    Rinse Out: Garnier Sleek and Shine, Trevor Sorbie curl conditioner (UK only, unfortunately)
    Stylers: KCCC, AG Re:coil, TIGI mousse, but open to suggestions!
    Gels: BRHG (my one and only)

    CG since 03/28/09
