Over the Memorial holiday weekend, my family and I took a long overdue trip to Virginia Beach. I hadn’t been to VA Beach since I was 4 years old, so it was really nice to revisit after 20-something years. Unfortunately, our trip was delayed by a flat tire, so after waiting hours in the hot sun, I decided I was going to make the most out of the trip. So we did everything from bicycling, go karts, getting henna tattoos and of course going to the beach.
I didn’t feel like dealing with my hair while I was there, so initially, I decided I was only going to get my feet wet, but once I got further and further into the water and a wave hit me on my head, that option was out the door. Really, how can you go to the beach and not expect to get your hair wet?? It was lots of fun and thank goodness, my sister came prepared. She’s gone natural for over a year and had with her Shea Moisture’s Organic Coconut & Hisbiscus Curl & Shine Shampoo and Organic Coconut & Hisbiscus Curl & Hold Smoothie.
Even though my hair is relaxed, I decided to use the shampoo and smoothie anyway. Usually, when I go the beach/pool, I let my hair air dry and it looks like a a lion’s mane, big, dry and fizzy, but with using the shampoo & smoothie, my hair stayed soft, hydrated and wavy. So, I rocked the beach wave look for the rest of my stay. No blow dryer! No flat irons! No big hair! No stress! No fuss!
Next time I go on vacation, I will be bringing those products with me. Shea Moisture products are available at Target and Walgreens.
