Flowers are blooming and temperatures warming up — whether you're headed to Coachella, Lolapalooza, Wanderlust, or Bonnaroo, you know it's just about that time of year...festival season! While a long weekend full of live music, dancing, laughing, and soaking up the sunshine is good for the soul, it can certainly take a lot out of you.
We've come up with 5 tips to help your flower-crowned heads make it through festival weekend like a pro. Consider this your festival season survival guide!
1. Stay hydrated!
Desert temps, dancing till you drop, and alcohol (if that's your thing) are a recipe for dehydration. Be sure to bring a refillable bottle and drink lots of water!
2. Wear sunscreen.
While sunscreen is an everyday essential, it’s especially important for protecting yourself from desert rays. We’re all about non-toxic products, but many sunscreens contain chemical filters that are endocrine disruptors and disrupt the natural hormone system.

3. Shade that beautiful face and hair, and pack hats!
We all know the importance of protecting our skin from sun damage, but protecting your hair is important, too. UV damage can dry out hair, cause split ends and frizz, and fade color. From sporty ball caps to hipster fedoras and feminine floppy hats, there's a style for everyone; protect your scalp and those luscious locks.
4. Bring healthy snacks.
Stash them in a fanny pack or side satchel. Chia seeds and protein bars are great options to keep you full and nourished without weighing you down.
5. Do damage control.
Make it through festival season in one piece? Now it's time to hydrate that dry, damaged hair! Feed those parched, sun drenched locks with our deepest conditioning mask, Don't Despair, Repair!
Your hair will thank you for the optimal blend of transformative hair nutrients (b-vitamin complex, rosehip & avocado oils, and silk) that restore and replenish damaged hair to a shiny, healthy state.
