Don’t forget natural beauty products at festivals this summer
Summer may be drawing to a close, but there are still some festivals going on over the next couple of weeks.
While they are lots of fun, they can take their toll on your body, so it is important to ensure you have a natural beauty products survival kit to keep your hair and skin in tip top condition.
The showers at festivals may not look that tempting but it is important that you don't forget to wash during all the music and celebrations.
The Bringer of Peace Herbal Body Wash for Sensitive Skin is a must-have, as it will calm you down after all that jumping and dancing around, while soothing the skin and ensuring you smell great.
However, the Bergamot, Neroli and Ylang Ylang will help uplift the body and ready you for more festival fun.
Look after skin
Sun exposure and lots of grass can be a nightmare combination, so it is essential that you have things on hand to address any problems as they happen.
In addition to an effective UV protection, be sure to bring a good moisturiser and ointment to help stop dry skin and sooth any inflammation from allergic reactions or bites.
Chickweed and Chamomile Ointment is an effective way to sort out itchy and dry skin. Chickweed purifies the body, removing toxins, while chamomile is an anti-inflammatory.
This combination is often used to treat eczema, but if your skin is taking a bit of a battering it's always good to have the ointment on hand.
Keep hair looking healthy
The sun and outdoor air can also have a negative effect on hair, drying it out. Total Repair Herbal Shampoo will ensure hair stays nourished and looking great while you're at a festival.
It contains Calendula, which has soothing and healing properties, while Frankincense and Neroli will tonify and rejuvenate. What's more, Sandlewood and Advocado oil will stop hair looking flat and tired.
However, it always pays to have a few tricks up your sleeve in case you don't get chance to wash your hair as regularly as you'd like.
Alison Dace, creative director at Saks hairdressers, recommends having a bobble and headscarf in your backpack.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
