Vacation Hair

The dilemma.
  • Delta air charges stupidness for checked bags on international flights.
  • My hair requires tons of wet/liquid product, particularly when swimming, to keep it moisturized and de-tangled.
  • Thus it will cost me at least $50 to maintain my wash and go or even twist style on my trip.
  • What else can I do?
It will cost more than $50 - a lot more- to have my hair done. So I've decided to braid it all up, cornrows in the front, braids in the back. So I did a test braid on "nappy" 3 day old hair to see what size I should do. That lil braid curled up, shrank shorter than the rest of my hair (which has crazy shrinkage), and was hell to get out! So I decided to blow dry it first. Man, oh man, what have I gotten myself into?

I'll post the braids if I ever finish them! :-)

  1. Orbitz was wrong- I could have checked two bags for free! But now I am prepared to bring only carry-on luggage. So the half finished braids will be finished and enjoyed :-)
