Hi everybody,

I am planning on travelling to SEA Jan 2011 for 4 months and then onto Australia.

This is probably going to sound a bit pathetic but basically I’m black and my hair is a bit of a nightmare & i was wondering if anybody had any advice on what i should do with it while I’m travelling?

I've searched the internet & basically cant find anything (other than a thread from a random forum in 2007). If anyone has any advice it would be greatly appreciated & I apologise in advance if i sound horrifically girly!

What exactly are you worried about? ... the heat, hair maintenance, what other people think?
I usually cut most of mine off before I go to SEA ... it's hot there and a crew cut keeps me cool(er) and looks 'good' right out of bed.

Its a bit of everything you mentioned really, usually, as my hair is so dry, i have to add additional oils and moisturiser - but as im travelling, i cant really do that.

Just wondered if anyone out there has this problem? or any solutions?

I'll prob put my hair in braids but as i have never done it before - i dont know how I'm suppose to maintain in whilist its in this style.

I realise how ridiculous I sound, but would appreciate feedback if anyone can help xx
