Beach Hair

My little sister got married this weekend y'all (*tear*...and a great big congrats to her) but that's not exactly what this post is about! I don't know what's been going on with the weather lately, but it's been all over the place like a roller coaster. One day it's super hot and sunny, the next day it's cold, and the very next day it's raining cats and dogs! It's hard to prepare outfits for the week let alone figure out what to do with my hair!!
Cute, right? (I'll be doing an OOTD on this next week!)

To make things easier on myself, since I usually don't have a lot of time, I've been wearing different variations of an afro. This would be cool if the weather would pick a weather condition and stick with it, but nooooo...

Prime Example: Last Friday! It was a very hot day, so me and the bf got up and out, bright and early, to play some miniature golf. To give you an idea of what I'm talking about, let's look at some temperatures. The high for last Monday was 64...the high on Friday was 90 degrees!! It goes without saying that it was an extremely hot day to be playing mini golf!! However, I got cute and Afro'd my hair for the day and everything went as planned...let's have a look see....

BEACH HAIR!!

So, I'm thinking I'll just do the same thing to my hair for the wedding tomorrow. I was wrong!! It rained that morning plus we were at the beach, so it was moisture in the air times 2!! My afro shrunk so much, it wasn't even funny :-/ (take a look at the picture on your left)  LOL!

Can you tell the difference?? This just tells me that I have to do something different with my hair when it's moist outside...whether it's raining or I'm at the beach...because shrinkage is real!!

I don't exactly know what my solution will be, however...I'm curious. What do you do with your hair when there's so much moisture in the air?!?

  1. I agree about this crazy weather not cooperating! I don't have your hair texture and I struggle with my hair when it gets super humid and moist out! I love what you wore for the beach wedding! Congrats to your sister.

  2. Love tha fro! I don't do anything to mine. I just let my curls fall where they want when the weather is acting a hot mess lol. Sometimes it wants to be a fro and sometimes it wants to stay in place. Mind of it's own! Love the dress!!!

    1. Thanks You! My hair is in an awkward stage so I stay at odds with it. It's hard for me to find anything to do with it that I like these days besides the afro...and I hate that it shrinks so much. I'm looking for some hang time, much like yours, but I know it's just going to take time...and I just have to be patient.

  3. Congrats to your baby sister. Love the hair! Normally I just put mine in a headband and rock the curls for the day when it's humid. Sometimes I put them in twists. I'm not too particular.

    1. Thanks two times!! I tried that headband look and I think I'm just going to stick with that. It's easy and keeps my hair out of the way. I have thought about wearing the twists out...but I want my hair to get a little longer before I do all that!

  4. CUTE!! Your lace top is perfection! I'm facing the same challenges with my transitioning hair because it is NOT cute to have a curly fro in the front of my hair with the rest silky smooth Remy hair lol.

    2. Thanks Candace! I'm in the process of trying to update my wardrobe too and that shirt is one of my new buys...lol. Let me not even talk about transitioning hair and the weather!! It's worse than all natural and the weather...smh! Two words, protective styles!! I was definitely thinking the same for myself, but at the same time, my hair likes to breathe!!
