Going to Coachella is definitely something I look forward to every year, but to be able to enjoy the festival while partnering with my favorite hair-care brand… well, that was a dream come true!
My love for Pantene products runs deep, it was the first shampoo I ever used (according to mom), Pantene oil was what my mom used on my hair to salvage it after an unfortunate perm when I was 16, and Pantene products is what I use now to keep my hair shiny and healthy. This year, Pantene was the official haircare sponsor of Coachella, so when they reached out and offered to collaborate to promote their on-site Pantene Style Lounge and limited-edition Pantene Festival Hair Kit, I definitely jumped on board. Aside from the fact that I already use and love most of the products included in the Pantene Festival Hair Kit, going to the festival can take a toll on your hair unless you use the right products, and the Kit includes everything you would need to create your perfect festival hair look while keeping your hair conditioned and healthy.
What does Pantene Festival Hair Kit include?
Pantene Airspray – lightweight, alcohol free hairspray that provides a smooth, controlled finish to your hairstyle. I love this particular product because it doesn’t make your hair feel crunchy or dry. It’s basically the only spray I use when I go for that super straight and sleek look because it keeps my hair in place, helps to control flyaways yet my hair still has movement and doesn’t look or feel stiff.
I used it to create this hair style for the welcome party at Pantene’s Coachella house and my hair looked perfect all night. My favorite way to use it is to spray a bit on a fine-toothed comb and run it through my hair, root to tip.
Coachella Day 1 started with a trip to Pantene Style Lounge where I got my hair festival ready. I opted for a sleek pony tail and finished the look with a pearl clip for a touch of drama. If you’re headed to Coachella this weekend, be sure to check out the Pantene Style Lounge – it’s free!
Pantene Festival Hair Kit favorite was the Pantene On-The-Go Frizz Iron. This product was a lifesaver all throughout Coachella for me for multiple reasons. First, it’s super compact and is truly intended for on the go use, so you can keep it in your purse and touch up at any point. Second, it tames the frizz right away and adds shine to your hair. I used it to smooth away baby hair around my face, so my ponytail stayed sleek all day and night. For areas around your face you just close the Frizz Iron around your hair and press very gently from top towards the ends. You can also use the Frizz Iron on your ends – just gently close it around your hair, press lightly, and glide the Frizz Iron down to the ends. Third reason why I love this product so much is because it’s super easy and quick to use, there’s absolutely no mess, and no drying alcohols involved! Love that!
We started Coachella Day 2 with some relaxing time by the pool. It’s not a trip to the desert for me without some pool time!
I typically try not wash my hair every day and after some time by the pool, my hair definitely needed a refresh. This is when the Pantene Festival Hair Kit came in handy again because it includes a Dry Shampoo – something you definitely need on the regular basis to save your hair from frequent washes and especially during a weekend at a festival since your hair is already going through so much, not washing it every day is definitely a plus. I just spray the Dry Shampoo on my roots (I like to section off the hair and spray to make sure I cover everything), lightly rub it in with my fingertips, and brush it out. Done! The Pantene Dry Shampoo absorbs oil and instantly refreshes hair without having to wash it.
Day 3 at Coachella started with a Play Rescue Reset Brunch at the Pantene House. Since I was sporting 3rd day hair, I was due for a wash and took it as an opportunity to use the Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots (which you can find in the Festival Hair Kit as well!) to get my hair back to fighting shape after all the sun exposure and styling! I have been loving the Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots and used them again once I got back home to Los Angeles because I could truly notice a difference in my hair – my hair felt softer, looked shinier, and got its strength and health back more and more with each use. Aside from great benefits, the Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots are so easy and quick to use – apply root-to-tip for 30 seconds and then rinse for 30 seconds. That’s it!
Since I was in the sun and dry desert heat all day, I also used Pantene Nourishing Mask sachets – another product included in the Festival Hair Kit.
What do I love about the Pantene Nourishing Mask sachets?
Honestly, with all the abuse I put my hair through, a good nourishing mask is exactly what I need, and this one is amazing! It helps to transform dry, brittle-looking hair into a healthy, shiny, touchably-soft mane. Love that! Super easy to use, I normally apply it mid-shaft to ends and keep it on for 5-7 minutes (of course you can keep it on longer if you have the time). Then, I rinse thoroughly after use.
Special thank you to Pantene team for the best Coachella weekend ever! It was truly an unforgettable experience!
