Hiking Hair: Styles and Care Tips for Colorado’s Outdoor Enthusiasts
Hey there, Rocky Mountain wanderlusters! If you’re anything like us at Fluff, you love combining a good hike with a great hair day. So, we’re serving up some adventurous yet chic hairdos and hair care tips for all you trail-blazing beauties out there.
Stylish, Practical ‘Dos for Denver’s Great Outdoors
Who says “practical” can’t also be “fashionable?” Not us! Here’s a couple of our favorite styles:
The Fluff Fishtail Braid
This style keeps your hair secure while showcasing a cool, intricate design. It’s great for long hikes and can easily transition to a night out in LoDo.
The Boulder Bun
Inspired by our friends to the north, this bun is perfect for those looking to conquer the most challenging trails. It keeps hair out of your face, so you can focus on the climb.
Hair Care Tips for the Trail
Here’s how to keep your locks lovely, even after they’ve been through wind, sun, and high altitude:
- Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate: Colorado air is dry, and your hair feels it too. Use a hydrating shampoo and conditioner, such as our favorite, Alter Ego Italy’s Silk Oil line.
- Shield from the Sun: UV rays can damage your hair. Protect it with a product that has UV protection, like the Alter Ego Italy Urban Proof line leave-in conditioner… And please do not put sunscreen directly in your hair, it’s not even worth taking the chance in contains ingredients that can devastate the hair and ruin your extensions.
- Tangle No More: Use an oil spray before your hike to prevent knots and make post-hike brushing a breeze. We love the Urban Proof De-Lite Protection Oil from Alter Ego Italy. Keel it in your backpack for all day hair hydration and care. Even with glamorous hair extensions, you can use this oil, but use it on the mid-lengths and ends and not on the scalp.
With these styles and care tips, you’re all set for your next outdoor adventure. Stay fabulous on the trails, Denver!
