Even though slumming it is part of the fun and experience during festival season, this is no excuse to slack off when it comes to your hair and beauty routine. While we’ve covered the festival hair colours that are going to take your festival style up a notch, this time we will be talking about the festival essentials for your hair and beauty so you can stay on top of your festival looks.
Next Day Hair
When you are camping on tents during festival, it can be difficult to find a place to regularly wash your hair. Festival season is therefore the best time to rock next-day hair. Aside from lack of shampoo, your hair is most likely to get greasy due to sweat and humidity. To combat the grease and make your hair still manageable, you need to pack a texturising powder. This will eliminate any unnecessary shine from your hair and also give your hair more volume.
To achieve volume and keep your hair from falling flat, lift your hair up and spray onto the roots. Use your fingertips to ruffle up your hair and give it body and volume. You can also use a texturising powder to create a wide range of hairstyles, further cementing its status as one of the festival essentials.
Braids are one of the best hairstyles for festivals because they offer a variety to your look. In addition, there are plenty of braids to choose from. Therefore, a sea salt spray or texture spray is one of the festival essentials in order to prep your hair and give it manageability. With improved manageability, you can easily re-create various kinds of braids.
Other Festival Hair Essentials
It is always a good idea to pack other styling products on top of these festival essentials for your hair. First and foremost, you will need to pack an anti-frizz serum or spray. The anti-frizz formula will tame down any frizz on your braids and make it look more polished. Simply spray a small amount onto a teasing brush and run it over your braids.
Another one of the festival essentials to pack for your hair is a dry shampoo. This can be a lifesaver during festival season. A good quality dry shampoo can keep your hair looking healthy and manageable without washing.
