After months of weighing the pros and cons, you’ve finally decided that taking time off work and going on a vacation is the best thing to do!

You’ve decided to head to the Bahamas because why not? You’ve packed all the essentials—sunscreen, your favorite clothes, charging cables, moisturizer and makeup. But there’s one thing that’s bugging you—how can you prevent your weaves from getting damaged?

You don’t know where the climate will suit your natural hair and weaves. After all, it is summer. But don’t worry. Use the tips from this article to prevent damage!

Use Filtered Water to Wash Your Hair

There should be no problem washing your hair with regular water. But if the water at the hotel doesn’t suit your hair, wash it with mineral water. Mineral water is filtered and you won’t have to worry about exposing your scalp and hair to toxins.

Pack Some Dry Shampoo

If your hair gets greasy easily and you won’t have time to wash it, take dry shampoo. Caring for natural hair can be hard work and to avoid a stressful morning routine, dry shampoo is what you need to pack.

But try not to use dry shampoo every day. Only use it once a week and that too if you have to!

Wear a Scarf or Headband

Traveling can be tough on your hair. If the destination you’re going to is humid, sweat is your worst enemy! So, make sure that you cover your hair when you go outside in the afternoon (if it’s super hot during the day.)

This’ll prevent frizz and dryness. In addition, the sun’s UV rays don’t just harm your skin; they can harm your hair too!

Here’s a pro-tip: when you apply sunscreen on your skin, apply a little on the roots of your hair so that the sun’s ray don’t damage them.

I’m Nancy and no, I didn’t always look like I do in that picture on the right. My foray into health and fitness began as a brace-faced, 16 year-old who was too afraid to wear a two-piece at the beach because I felt my body paled in comparison to my much more toned friends.
