Girl bosses are always prepared when on the go. Case in point: that enormous purse that we don’t actually need, but we jam it full of things that will totally be helpful “just in case.” People always know to ask you for something they’re missing, because you’ve got a stash in your bag that includes the necessary, the “what if” items, and the totally random.
Your gym bag is no different. But before you start packing it full of all the wonderful things you just might need, take a look at our must-have items! These gym bag essentials will keep you going through that gym sesh, so take note and stock up.
Dry shampoo has literally changed my life. As a girl on the go, I’m constantly running from the store to the gym, to meet friends, and to run errands. I simply don’t have time to wash my hair after the gym sometimes, but thankfully, dry shampoo saves the day – and your hair. Spray at the root for fluffy, stank-free hair!
U by Kotex® FITNESS* FITPAK

Everyone needs a little refresher after working out. Finding some good deodorant wipes can make a world of difference. All you need to do is dry off a little bit, then wipe down to eliminate body odor and feel refreshed! Post-yoga class, these are absolutely perfect.
Extra Hair Ties
Let’s all take a moment for the hair ties we’ve lost – and the ones broken in battle against our high ponytail. I carry at least 3 or 4 with me at a time just in case I need them, and I like to have a few extra for a friend, too! We girls gotta have each other’s backs.
