Keeping your hair healthy isn’t easy. Not only do you have to monitor the ends to see if you need a trim, but you will also need to protect it from the elements. This is particularly important if you are looking to attend music festivals as this can have a profound effect on the overall health of your scalp as well as your hair.

Keep Hairstyle Simple

One of the best ways to keep your hair healthy for festival season is to keep the hairstyles as simple and stress-free as possible. If you can, avoid pulling the hair tightly into a ponytail as this can cause breakages at the root or even begin breakages along the hairline. This is particularly important for those that have recently undergone an FUE hair transplant Turkey or in other parts of the UK as this excess stress could cause more damage to the hair.

Deep Condition Before Leaving

If you are going to be enjoying a long weekend in blazing heat deep conditioning is highly important. Not only will this act as a barrier to prevent sum damage, but it will ensure that the hair is moisturised without leaving it greasy and unmanageable. This is important when at a festival as you will be busy exploring and enjoying music rather than caring for your hair in the way you would at home. Deep conditioning will also help you to maintain the level of frizz that your hair will build up, allowing you to style it with ease regardless of where you are and what you are doing.

Use Dry Shampoo Sparingly

Although using dry shampoo may seem like the perfect option to combat greasy hair, this can end up causing more damage to the surface of the scalp. Not only can this and the rising heat lead to conditions such as dandruff, but it can also lead to the scalp becoming irritated and generating more oil as a result. This can then cause greasy hair and added discomfort throughout your time at the festival which can drastically affect the damage that is done to your hair when you return home.

With a number of festivals now offering showering facilities for those that wish to, it is well worth spending the extra cash to wash your hair should you need to and minimise the amount of damage that is inflicted.

Avoid Styling Products

Although it may seem tempting to use products such as gel and hairspray for your initial day at the festival, this can cause your hair to become greasy in the long term. This can then lead to the hair becoming unmanageable and needing to be washed many more times throughout the course of the day. To avoid this, use gel on the second or third day of the festival to prevent flyaways but use sparingly to avoid a build up being left in the scalp. This will help to keep the hair healthy until you get home and are able to wash it.

Whatever festival you are going to this festival season, you can be sure to keep your hair as healthy without comprising on your overall experience with these easy to follow tips. Which will you choose first?
