Another post beach refresh. Combed it through with some water and then smoothed in a bit of @giovannicosmetics direct leave-in conditioner mixed with equal parts of @boucleme curl defining gel, air dried and SOTC for actual beach waves!
Well summer is certainly in full swing where I am. I am soaking up some rays in Cannes (France) and my curls seem to like a bit of sea air, humidity and sunshine! Until they don’t...! Because that’s curly hair for you - one minute it’s all happy and next minute, it’s gets all emotional and has a meltdown!
I am all about prevention, so allowing my hair to frazzle in the sun is not going to happen. I have not come this far for my ends to just snap off and scorch my hair in the sun whilst avoiding heat tools like the plague - that’s just dumb - yes I said it!
You can take all the carefree pictures you will of your hair blowing about in the wind and elements and sure - it feels liberating to do just that for a hot minute! But you frig about all day in the beating sun and salty water and pay your hair no mind?
There really isn’t any time out from your natural but you can keep it really simple. Keep your hair moisturised. Holiday and sunshine hair is not the time to play the ‘how many days can I go without rehydrating or moisturising’ game...
I washed on Wednesday and I really loaded my hair with moisture, knowing I would be away. I packed my spray bottle full of rose water and along with a gel that is full of moisturising goodies, that has taken me to day four, where I know I will wash tomorrow but today my hair needs a bit more. At home, I get away with the spritz and a little gel over the top through to my next wash day. But today I am in with the leave in and lastnight I gave myself a soothing scalp massage with an oil mix.
I don’t plan to swim - the Cannes seafront is beautiful but I’m from the Caribbean, so I am really sniffy about beaches and seawater - yep - I said it...
My best advice for curls and hot weather is to just take action - don’t wait for the tears...!♀️
We’ve spent our last morning pottering around the local village, we’ve visited the garden centre for Mum and we’ve had a lovely lunch together & indulged in some local delights Im going to miss this place, it’s so pretty & today it’s blue skies too, let’s hope the sunshine follows when we head back to the UK Ps is it just me or does everyone take full advantage of not having to style hair everyday on holiday? ♀️ I love having my hair in a plait or pony everyday whilst on holiday - it’s sooo refreshing not giving a hoot about hair ♀️
Memaafkan akan memudahkan jalan kita melupakan masa lalu yang pahit dan menuju ke lembaran baru yang lebih bahagia
