If you read my previous post called “Spain Hair Stress”, I am delighted to let you know that I have solved my hair issues. You all were SUPER helpful here, and on Facebook.
I was given advice to: Go to Spain with a protective style and then find hair products there. To go with simplicity as far as a little bit of products, water and that’s it. To order products from Amazon when I got there. Locking my hair. Use a lot of oils. Even flat twists! All wonderful advice =D
Well, what I am going to do is go to Spain with my hair in a protective style, CROCHET BRAIDS. I will probably put them in January 5th; we fly out the 7th. What I also will do is bring a few staple products, Ecostyler gel, kinky curly curling custard and argan oil. O0o and a backup curly wig lol.
Guys let me tell you about the last time I was in Europe for a long period of time. I left for Spain and my hair was past my shoulders. I came back and my hair was about 5 inches shorter. My bangs were about half an inch long. It was bad, I went into hair recovery right away. YouTube saved my hair’s life because I learned about half wigs. I wore half wigs for a whole year straight. Maybe I’m traumatized now? When I think about it, I had a perm and didn’t know what I know now. I wasn’t moisturizing my hair, sealing with an oil, etc. Protective styling didn’t exist in 2009, well it wasn’t called a protective style. We may have put our hair in box braids but it wasn’t called a protective style, it was called box braids. Things have changed, we are a lot more educated about our hair now.
So Spain here I come, I’m ready for you this time!
