Tejas did a good job of prepping me for my first burn in 2015.
He did however overlook one crucial lesson.
Maybe he overlooked it because he has short man hair, not long girly hair.
I doubt it ever came up for him.
I was on the playa in 2015 and I took a shower.
Then I rode out in a dust storm with damp hair.
I could not get a brush or a comb through my hair for the rest of the burn.
It turned into ONE BIG DREAD LOCK!
I had to go home, pile on the conditioner, and slowly work a comb through small sections of hair.
It was excruciating.
Here is my BEFORE photo:
And here is my AFTER photo:
I learned, during my disastrous 2015 burn, that wigs can save you from EVERY BAD HAIR DAY ON PLAYA.
So you can imagine how thrilled I was when I came across THIS wig on Amazon – PERFECT FOR MY UNICORN HOT PANTS OUTFIT!
Not surprisingly, I will be taking 4 wigs to Burning Man this year – white, rainbow, purple and this pastel one.
I WILL NOT, however, be going out damp into any dust storms.
That’s just asking for trouble.
