How to suit up for desert hiking?

I already know the "wear breathable, loose clothing" proverb, so what I'm really looking for is the in-depth stuff, like a breakdown on how different fibres/fabrics would behave, methods to keep sand out of my face and how to cover my head in the most efficient way possible regarding space/weight.

Thanks in advance.
