The festival season is finally upon us!
Having had some serious festival envy over the lucky Coachella goers we have festival-fever in full swing! Here is our how to guide on prepping your hair for a festival and surviving sleepless nights with hair that still looks chic.
Pre Festival Prep
In the run up to festival day whilst you rejoice in the last of the hot showers, make sure to treat yourself to some deep moisturisation. We suggest that you start this routine as early as possible with natural oil that’s recommended for prolonged use. Healthy hair will stay healthy through out the festival even if it is slightly disheveled by the end of it.
Try: Amla Hair Remedy
With 5 super oils to improve the condition and strengthen your hair from within, this oil is a great starting point. The combination of Amla, Coconut, Avocado and Argan naturally cleanses and promotes growth. Run it through hair before the final blow-dry to leave you with frizz free, amazing smelling, healthy hair.
Styles For Miles
With only a shower hose and flannel to wash, there’s no chance of fresh bouncy hair after a few days festival-ing. We say embrace it! There are some many festival-fresh styles that are the perfect disguise for your dirty locks. Go grease (lightning?)… With the grease starting to creep in, get braiding. You might think we are mad to suggest using hair oils at this point, but we promise its worth it! Run a little of our Grapefruit Hair Remedy through the ends of your hair – our completely natural product borrows from Indian hair care rituals to enrich your hair leaving is shiny and sleek, goodbye grease, hello beautiful braids!
Fighting The Frizz
With the hangover hitting hard, taming your mane might be slipping down your priority list. And to be fair there is something to be said for that messy bed-head look (thanks Kate Moss!).
Luckily with your pre-festival hair care will still be holding strong, getting the birds nest to buzz off shouldn’t be too much of a struggle.
Here are the supplies you will need:
• Tangle teaser brush
• Dry shampoo
• Peppermint Beard Remedy
Yes we did say beard remedy and no we aren’t expecting you to have grown festival fuzz at this point. Our peppermint beard remedy is actually one of our most versatile products! The blend of avocado, coconut and Argan oils will work together to soften and improve the manageability of you hair (whether its on your head or your chin!), while the rosehip adds hydration and omega 3, 6 and 9 to repair damaged tissue. Not to mention the peppermint which will help to hide that slight festival musk smell that’s beginning to develop.
Rub a few drops between your palms and massage into your hair, any excess can be rubbed into your skin for extra moisurisation.
Post festival reality will hit. All those toxins will be taking their effect, sleep deprivation will have you in a spin and the closest thing to a vegetable you’ve had is probably tomato ketchup.
With festival blues kicking in try some recovery drinks such as coconut water – this will hydrate your body and your hair and is packed with electrolytes and minerals that you might be lacking at this point! It will help your hair recovery by replacing proteins. Double up your coconut hit with Alma Hair Remedy, which contains coconut oil and essential fatty acids and vitamin C.
You will be back to luscious locks in no time!
