Whenever I go on vacation, I never know what to do with my hair. I’m usually a wash n go type but since my hair is low porosity, my hair loses moisture very fast in countries where it is hot. So I have listed a few options what you can do on vacation.
1. Protective styling
Of course protective styling is a way to go. For me, box braids will last the longest, but there are much more protective styles. Faux locs, senegalese twists, you name it!
2. Low manipulation
Twist outs, braid outs, or my personal favorite: finger coils. I like finger coils the best because there is hardly any frizz especially when you do not seperate the strands. Flexi rods or perm rods can work but that can frizz up faster because of warmth or humidity.
3. (Lace) wigs and weaves.
Similar to point one, but this might be good for the not so warm places to go on vacation, so it won’t be to warm on top of your head.
4. Straight hair
Only an option if you are not completely against heat and more into city trips than a beach vacation.
I personally like finger coils and box braids the most. I also still wash n go but I prefer not to because the moisture leaves my hair too quickly. What do you like to do with your hair on vacation?
