For us beauty-addicted, camping (in any form) is complicated. No showers, no outlets, no mirrors, AH! But that doesn’t mean you should avoid it. Seriously, do it. Just follow our guide when you do. The only thing better than getting away from it all to take in long sunsets and starry skies, is looking good while you do it.
Salty-sea-inspired waves are always a good idea when you’re going to enjoy the outdoors, and with a few different products, they can be achieved whether or not you’ve showered in last day or two. When your hair is clean, use a texturizing spray like this one from Living Proof. It’ll enhance your natural waves and add hold to the style so that it lasts. To maintain the look (next day or next-next day), use a sea-salt spray to reactivate the curls and add a dry shampoo powder to your roots for lift and sweat absorption. This one from Lulu Organics smells appropriate and is environmentally friendly.
BRAIDS ARE YOUR NEW BFF
Just like everyone who went to Coachella this year, get familiar with braids. They are great for surviving days of dirty hair, will last during long hikes and can be used to create texture + curl when you can’t rely on heat-styling.
SLEEK IS ALWAYS CHIC
If you can’t make texture work for you, opt for sleek styling. You really can’t mess it up and the oils you use will keep you hair nourished for days. Also, oil hides oil. Just sayin. Stick with something natural, like this Chamomille and Rosemary oil from Little Barn Apothecary.
WHEN IN DOUBT, ROCK A HAT
Or a bandana, or a headscarf. The right hat will SAVE you from a bad hair day, protect your hair from the sun, and make you look totally wild-west-boho-queen. Shop here for the perfect one.
