Your daughter is off to summer camp, but is her hair ready for a month in the wilderness? The elements can weigh down her locks, so pack these hair boosters to keep them looking lovely and tangle-free.
1. Soft round brush and wide-toothed comb
Start with two tools that drive frizz away. First, give her a soft round brush that can straighten the kinks that form after a sun-drenched afternoon. Then remind her to use a wide-toothed comb before showering to prevent tangles from forming.
2. The right conditioner
Most camps stock up on shampoo, but conditioner? It’s going to be every girl for herself. If she’s got drier-than-normal hair, throw a moisturizing conditioner into her overnight bag. If she’s just had her first highlights done, then a color-boosting conditioner might be a better option.
3. Smooth silk or satin pillow cover
Camp accommodations are clean and safe, but comfort isn’t always high on the list of priorities. It may seem like a small thing, but when she settles down to bed after a long, exciting day, she’ll be glad to have a little piece of home with her.
4. Outdoor hair accessories.
Summer camp is about having fun outdoors. Your daughter will play tag, roll on the grass, and generally take part in all sorts of physical activities that are likely to mess up her hair… that is, unless she goes to camp prepared! With the right No Slippy Hair Clippy® hair accessory, you can keep her locks neat and tidy all day long:
French clips like the Valerie bow (available in leopard print or zebra print) won’t shake loose even during the most demanding physical exertions, the safari-themed designs are a lot of fun, and most importantly, they’re comfy!
For a more colorful look, go for the Whitney Princess* bow in bubblegum pink. The bright pink looks great on any hair color, and the soft grosgrain ribbon won’t snag on her hair.
The delicate-as-a-daisy Belinda flower clip in white is a summer camp favorite. But if you’re looking for more colorful varieties, we carry the clip in wildflower colors like lavender, orange, and turquoise. You can even get them all so she can wear a different one each day of the week!
Who doesn’t love sparkly things in summer? The Felicia flower clip is a bejeweled treasure she’ll want to show off to everyone at camp. It’s best worn on a side part to help hold her bangs in place.
Now that you’re all packed, don’t forget a loving peck and encourage her to have a truly happy time at summer camp!
