You’ve got the tent, you’ve got the wellies and your festival wardrobe is curated to boho perfection. But let’s not forget one vitally important detail here: what on earth are you going to do with your hair?
With limited packing space and restricted showers, hard-working hair products are just as (if not even more) important to pack than your sleeping bag…
Whether you’re glamping it up in style at Coachella or roughing it at Secret Garden Party, read on to see what the ATH team will be bringing along with them for weekend-long hair perfection this festival season.
Our editors’ must-pack festival hair products revealed
I use this to create a sleek low bun look that keeps my hair neat and under control, plus I can always use a little extra throughout the day to slick down any frizz if I need to.”
“Festival showers are unappealing at the best of times, so a good dry shampoo is a must. The TRESemmé Instant Refresh Cleansing Dry Shampoo gets the job done and is really easy to work into the roots, so even if I don’t have a mirror I don’t have to worry about there being any white marks.
It refreshes my hair by making it look and feel cleaner, plus gives my night time hairstyle a little boost of extra volume.”
“Festival hair to me means braids, so a sea salt spray (I rate the TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray) is a no brainer. That way, I’ll be able to put my hair into my go-to boxer braids for the first couple of days and know they’ll stay put!
Then, once I’m bored of the braids, I’ll be able to take them out and have tousled, undone waves – no heat needed.”
