How to Keep Festival Hair Fresh
Let’s start with the basics: keeping hair clean(ish). Between camping in a muddy field, unpredictable weather and the no-shower situation, your festival hair might not be looking as flawless as you’d hoped a few days in. Follow these expert tips to give your hair a bit of oomph on the go.
Tip 1: Pre-Festival Prep
To achieve festival hair goals, it’s all in the prep work. Before putting hair through its paces stage-side, treat it to an intensely moisturizing treatment, like Nutri-Enrich Deep Nourishing Mask. It contains soothing vitamin E to leave hair smooth, hydrated and strong, and protects your strands from getting too dry and brittle over the coming days. Apply the night before you head off to the main stage and your hair will look as good IRL as on the ‘gram.
Tip 2: Root Refresh
Next up, dry shampoo – your ticket to a fresh, volumized mane in a spritz. Hold EIMI Dry Me at arm’s length away from hair and spray directly onto roots. For added texture, massage the scalp with fingertips to blend dry shampoo through hair, creating volume and lift at the crown while instantly absorbing grease and oil. If you’re going for a sleeker vibe, brush it through hair and roots to leave a smoother, silkier finish.
Tip 3: Turn Up the Volume
Whatever your daytime festival hair look, always sweep hair up into a super-high topknot at the crown of your head before hitting your sleeping bag. Lightly twist and fix the night into place with Kirby grips, then release in the morning for a volume boost without a single harsh hairband line in sight. Easy.
