How to Take Your Festival Hair Back to Real Life

Praise the power of leave-in conditioner.

Those intricate festival under-cut braids, crown braids, and side braids are *everything* in the moment and on the grounds. But, after a day (or three) of wear and tear, the tight-weaving, extra pinning and general take down can leave you with crazy-stubborn dents and waves that won't work with you without a complete re-wash.

Turns out, you can in fact make that hair work to your best advantage without having to lather up. Click the video to see how using a Paraben-free leave-in conditioner like Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Intensely Smooth Leave-In Conditioner (opens in new tab) can transform your hair from fried to fly in mere minutes. Look for formulas like this one, with super fruit Argan oil, which helps to keep frizz in check. Word.
