Do you remember The One in Barbados?
You know, the one when Rachel and Joey FINALLY kiss? Watching them kiss just felt wrong. Worst couple in the history of Friends. Yes, worse than Ross and Janice.
Why is this story relevant? Because if you've watched that episode, you’ll probably also remember Monica’s hair, made comically poofy by the Barbados humidity.
This was meant to be so funny. But it's not so funny when this is your *actual* hair when you go overseas.
Don’t get me wrong, I love curly hair. But over the years, I’ve found my addiction to heat styling has damaged my natural curl, which is such a shame.
One day, I will embrace my natural curls and I’ll detox from my heat tools. Unfortunately, today is not that day.
(Side note: if you’re interested in regaining your natural curls, we have a YouTube video on the Curly Girl Method.)
When I go on holidays, I find the humidity makes my hair really unmanageable. I end up trying to straighten it, but the humidity usually has other plans for my hair.
While overseas, I’ve done chemical straightening (my hair fell out). I’ve done the braids (the outcome is pictured above). I’ve pretty much tried everything to tame my frizz while on holidays. On my last trip to Thailand, I soaked my hair in coconut oil, refused to wash it and covered up the greasy roots with a hat.
Now, I find myself asking... why the hell didn’t I try a keratin treatment? After 31 years of travelling, I really wish I had discovered this sooner.
