Here's What You Need to Know About Looking After Your Hair at a Festival

When the sounds of the summer involve rocking out in a wide-open field, you'll have more than just your hair to think about. That's why we're making it easier for you, with these quick tips on how to handle your hair fuss-free at a festival!

When it comes to washing...

So, you're going to be at a music festival over the long weekend and you're already in fear of the thought of oily roots. Plan ahead and wash your locks the morning before heading off, not the night or day before. Come day three of festival fun and you'll be glad you washed your hair later rather than earlier!

If you're the type who gets greasy hair on first or second day hair, we suggest packing a dry shampoo to spray onto your roots as and when needed.

Protect your hair from the elements

Whether it's rain or shine, your hair will be far more exposed to the weather than it's used to, especially if you're spending long periods of time outdoors. If it's going to be a scorcher, apply a heat protection spray or oil to your locks, as this will help to keep UV rays at bay.

The likelihood is that it's going to rain, because let's face it, a British festival isn't festive without the mud! For that reason alone, a hair oil is definitely worth packing, as it will help to protect your hair from unruly frizz caused by the rain.

Accessories are key

Protecting your head from the heat of the sun is as easy as wearing a stylish bandana or a cute cap while you're rocking out in the mosh pit. Not only that, hair accessories can help to camouflage oily roots.

Skip on the products

The more products you put in your hair, the more likely it is your locks will become greasy and unmanageable, for this reason we suggest keeping styling products to a bare minimum. We told you we've got your back on this one!

It's all in the hair style

Not only will styling your hair up help to keep it out of your face as you dance about, up-dos are another clever way to camouflage unsightly roots and messy locks. Consider wearing your locks in boxer braids for the ultimate experience of hair freedom this festival season!
