Festival Hair Care Survival Kit

Hi cuties! As you may have seen if you follow along on Insta - I attended my very first Coachella music festival this past weekend! I’m working on a full blog post sharing my experience/outfits, but today I want to talk to you guys about a very important piece of this festival: hair! And not just the glitter-filled, space-like, boho-flow hairstyles that are signature to this event, but the actual care of your hair that is essential to surviving Coachella.

Think about it: you’re spending three full days in or around the desert dust, under the blazing sun, and to top it all off, constantly adding product and/or accessories to achieve those festival vibes. The possibilities for damage are endless! This is why it’s so important to take proper care of your hair pre, during and post festival season.
My secret weapon this past weekend was Pantene’s limited-edition Festival Hair Kit: a portable haircare pack with all of the essentials you’ll need to survive any festival you attend this year. As the official haircare sponsor of Coachella, Stagecoach and Firefly, Pantene has got you covered with all your hair needs. The kit is packed with Pantene’s Airspray, Dry Shampoo, two Nourishing Hair Mask sachets, one ampoule of the Intense Rescue Shots and the On-the-Go Frizz Iron.

During the festival...

I used the Airspray (alcohol-free hairspray) to lock out humidity and add shine for a lasting hold throughout the day. Spray evenly on styled hair for a light-weight finish. I also added some loose glitter to my hair (on day three), and this bad boy (the Airspray) held it in while maintaining a silky look. Talk about a hair hack! ;)

I also used the Dry Shampoo to carry me in-between styles as I didn’t wash my hair throughout the festival - takes too long to dry! Just shake, spray and rub in at the roots or wherever your hair needs refreshment most. It instantly absorbed oil and refreshed my hair, especially on the second and third day!

The On-the-Go Frizz Iron is small and portable and came in handy to fight frizz in the desert climate. It’s like a traditional flat iron, but without the heat! I’d close the Frizz Iron around my hair and glide it from top to bottom. Quick and easy way to straighten, smooth and moisturize my hair at the festival!


I noticed my hair has been dryer than ever - all that sun/dust and no moisture will do that to ya! The Nourishing Hair Mask sachets and Intense Rescue Shots have been my saving grace since coming home!

While in the shower, and after shampooing, place a half dollar amount of the Nourishing Mask inside your hands and comb through hair from mid-shaft to ends. I left it on for 5-7 minutes, but you can leave it on for longer if you so desire! Talk about an instant hydration boost!

The real hero though, is the new Pantene Intense Rescue Shots. . This is Pantene’s first at-home rescue treatment, imported from Brazil, and is currently the #1 selling NEW treatment across the haircare category. After washing my hair with shampoo, I applied the Intense Rescue Shots and massaged from root to tip, targeting areas that see the most damage. When you use it, be sure to leave in for 30 seconds, then rinse for 30 seconds. With these I was able to quickly repair damage to my hair from all the Coachella weekend fun! 

Also, I’d recommend using one of the masks pre-event to prep your hair as much as possible for what’s to come. I didn’t do this myself, but so will moving forward!
