I don't think there are electric outlets at the campground. Hook up with someone who has a hotel room and you're set.

Oddly enough, I was thinking the same thing. I mean, I'm all about roughing it but what if I want to fix my hair and look nice one of those nights? If you're driving or renting a car, you might try getting an adapter for the car which turns your cigarette lighter into an electrical outlet. I have one but absolutely do not remember where I bought it. I think they sell them at REI, maybe? If not, I think they sell cordless/battery powered straighteners.

In 2004, I thought that I might want to look nice and straighten my hair, too. I learned very quickly that it was just so damn hot that it really didn't matter. Plus, never underestimate your need for a hat!

Not only good for your hair straightener, but also for your laptop, coffeemaker, Sonicare, microwave,...

Cool thought on the power adapter... Let's hope it isn't too hot in the desert where your 'press' isn't ruined by sweat. (though you did mention straightening it everyday) Cheers !

Thank you all for your answers. Thanks. :)

And Meadowsmeister, if you weren't that ignorant you would know that what you call emo is in fact "scene" and that what you call emo kids are in fact "scene kids" though they listen to mtvmo (third wave emo).

Anyway, thank you all for your replies. :)

mtvmo (third wave emo)that is the coolest thing i've ever heard.

dude don't worry about your hair. it will be too hot and you will get too sweaty and all that time pressing your hair will go to waste when it frizzes out again. don't worry about how you look and just have fun. plus, you'll probably be too tired by the time the show gets out each night to go do more shit.

Well said! All I need is a scrunchie, some pins, and a hat! (And maybe a pinch of hairspray) Bam! All set!:2c

You WILL sweat a ton, and my hair looks terrible every year. What's worse is that it's in the LA area, so there are a ton of people walking around with perfect hair. This year I have bangs too, I'm really screwed. That car adapter is looking tempting...

I'm actually plannin on cutting my hair soon cause it's getting a bit long. Long black asian hair in the desert isn't going to go over well with me.

Haha I'll probably die too in the desert.. nut what the fuck, if I can have nice hair just a coupke of hours every day I'll be happy. :p but I'm NOT going to cut it. :D

I had to have a giggle at this thread... but good on ya for wanting to look fab, David_w. :)

So I went looking (see how hard I'm tryin for ya LOL) -- Conair has a cordless:
Cordless Ceramic 1" Straightener - model #TC607BC
$21.99 on their website, available at all the usuals: Walmart, Target, Kohls, etc.

Only prob -- it runs on butane thermal cell. Probably not officially allowed into the campground. Depends on how thorough the search is, and if it's confiscated, you're SOL and curly for the weekend. :)

Been to ACLFest with long straight hair and a ponytail, doesn't matter how dry the weather, your own personal climate will frizz that hair though. I don't like hats either but gave in last year for a straw cheapie and life was much better. Plus my husband thought it was cute. ;)

For healthy hair, you should avoid adding heat at any cost...

Are you a hairstylist too? lol
Since attending lollapalooza & Coachella, I've noticed lots of people with some
luscious massive amounts of curl. If anyone plans on having a good time, perfect hair for these fests will not last long. (unless it's braided, twisted, dreaded, or something else intricate)

Wearing a hat is the best idea. This will also prevent sunburn on your scalp where your hair is parted!

I know but I don't care about having that healthy hair as long as it looks good.
