Vacation Hair

Well, I’ve been remiss about putting up hair posts but you guys sure let me know you want em back!

So, as a lazy starter hair post, here’s my vacay hair/reggie for a few weeks ago in playa del carmen.

I went down there with my hair in 3 fat braids.  They quickly got messy from being in the water.

I shampooed daily while down there due to the salt water and chlorine, and when I conditioned, I let some stay in most of the day.

What I didn’t do this trip that I usually do, is DC.  Usually I would DC almost every night to attempt to counteract all the abuse it received during the day, but alas, not this time. 🙁

I wore my hair in wash n gos, braids and buns primarily.  For wash n gos I used Mixed Silk, the Sallys version of Mixed Chicks.  It. Is. The. Bomb.  I like it better than Mixed Chicks and I’ll post a review of it soon.

Here are some more hair shots:

@Keya - I cannot braid at all. My mom did those, the middle one unraveled in my sleep (when they were new) and I halfassed got it back together...u can see the damage i caused.

Beautiful styles. You've given me some ideas. I wish I could braid like you though.
