My natural hair journey continues, as it’s been months since my last relaxer and let me just say this – this has not been easy! I’ve mentioned it once but I’ll mention it again, I am clueless when it comes to my own hair. Everything I do to my hair is based on trial and error. If I could have a hairstylist every single day, I definitely would. That being said, this natural hair bit has definitely been a solo mission for the most part.
I spent the past two weeks on the road – first to DC and then to Miami. The frigid DC weather was a breeze. I had my hair pressed before I left and all was glorious. The next leg of my journey was less than successful …
I stayed at the beautiful Standard Spa in Miami, which is basically an adult playground for all things relaxation. I’m talking a salt water pool, hot tub, cold pool, sauna, steam room, yoga, pilates … the works. I didn’t want to be the girl who didn’t enjoy herself on account of her hair, so I soaked up the fun while my hair soaked up the water.
OMG. My hair freaked out. Seriously my hair had never looked more terrible. I am the reigning Queen of the Hat but my hat usage reached comical levels during this trip. Let me paint you a quick picture- I was wearing a beanie to the pool. To the pool! Without the hat I looked like Sideshow Bob from The Simpsons.
As much as I wanted to reach for the “creamy crack” I remained strong. Today I am wearing my hair curly for the first time (I’m safe and frizz-free in LA). Can’t quite tell how I feel about it yet but I guess it’s part of the journey.
Natural hair girls, how to do you combat the frizz in humid climates?
