I’m not a big fan of flying, but the idea of going on a week long vacay has me ready to pack my bags in an instant. I’ll be heading to Jamaica in a couple of weeks, and I’ve been going back and forth on what to do with my hair. My last vacation was this past Spring and I decided to try to let my natural hair run free. BIG MISTAKE. I found myself struggling to control my hair with all types of pool and salt water in it. Sure, fresh out of the water I had thick ringlets that were defined and shiny, but as soon as it dried, it resembled matted sheep’s wool. My curls had no definition and overall, it looked extremely dry.
This time around, I want a style that won’t budge no matter what I do, so I’m going to get beautiful, thick cornrows. I haven’t had cornrows with extensions in so long that I had to get used to the idea. The more I looked online for inspiration, I began to open up to the idea. I know that I want to try the new trend with varying sizes, and perhaps play around with the parts. I pulled some photos for inspiration and am continuing to look.
With so much fun to be had on a beautiful island, I want my hair to be the least of my worries.
Any suggestions on products for maintenance?
