Billabong X John Frieda: Featuring Pacha Light 'I've Been Surfing All Day' Look
Here’s how to get the Top Knot
- Cleanse hair using the John Frieda® Beach Blonde® Cool Dip® Shampoo
- Then apply the Beach Blonde® Smooth Seas® Detangling Conditioner to hydrate your hair from mid lengths to ends and rinse.
- Use a wide tooth comb to free the hair of any tangles.
- Effortlessly pull your clean and moisturized hair to the top of your head and twist into a top knot.
- Use an elastic band and to secure in place. The color of elastic band should be the same tone as your hair for a flawless look.
We caught up with Pacha and got the road trip rundown. Read the Q&A below…
Any favorite moment spending time with the team? Being head DJ of the aux cord on the drives - so much fun dancing in the back seats with Josie!
What’s the best part of a surf-related road trip? That first view of a surf break - coming around the corner to gaze in wonder at the wild blue ocean!
You’re go-to road trip snack? Passionfruit!!
If you had to pick one product piece from the trip to keep, what it would be and why? My absolute favorite was this ‘Sol Searcher Ruffle Bikini Top”. It was so pretty, the way it flowed.. too cute!
What John Frieda product would we find in your purse? And why? I used the ‘Beach Blonde’ purifying shampoo and detangling conditioner to nourish my sun bleached hair but what I have in my backpack is the ‘anti frizz leave in conditioner - always need it on hand!
The best chill spot on your little trip? Killen Falls by far, the waterfall has this powerful energy about it. It was so loud but so peaceful, made me remember how small we really are, mother nature truly is amazing. It’s a crazy experience, first you walk down a steep, rocky/muddy path (try not to get eaten by leaches!) then you see the river, flowing steadily. Walk a little bit further and you can see this massive, thick waterfall, smashing on to some rocks and the river below. Trying to stand under it was definitely a struggle, it’s coming down with so much force, very humbling.
If you had to pick the best break from the trip what would it be and why? The best break would be my home break of the Gold Coast, Snapper through to Kirra (we even got it protected as the seventh World Surfing Reserve recently!). We surfed it with the girls and it was crazy pumping! I had so much fun attempting to surf it with my brother’s hand shaped Alaia (basically a 5’3 sculpted piece of finless driftwood like something out of ’Surfs Up') but I soon swapped it for a 9ft log borrowed to us from my shaper, Duranbah surfboards - so much easier!!
After working with John Frieda, what was some of the best new tips or advice you learned? Or advice to give other girls… NOURISH! Take care of your hair, keep it nice n’ natural
Give us a few words necessary to navigating the Australian coast and their translation. Well first you gotta jump in ya ute, say g’day to every single person you see, don’t run into a big red roo, if you find ya self in woop woop, no worries just chuck a u-ey, you’ll get there this sarvo, you might even have time of a cuppa. Good on ya mate ;)
Three adjectives to describe your trip… cheeky, wild and salty
Where are you going next? My next grand adventure will be in May- July, going to Japan for 6 weeks on a slow surfari, living in a van, scouting wild breaks and singing and talking about protecting the planet. I’ll also be heading to Portugal for the ISA world junior surfing titles in September then staying in Hossegor, France, and maybe another road trip through Spain and Portugal.
