My-Cherie

I just recently got married and was confused about how I was going to wear my hair on my honeymoon to Europe. I was really stressed out over it, but I knew I had to come up with some sort of way to make my hair work. Honestly, I just really didn’t feel like being bothered with doing my hair every day. Hair issues on a honeymoon is no fun whatsoever!

I thought about braids, but my man said that braids were so unoriginal. He said, “You should wear your fro just the way it is. It’s you. It’s unique.” He was right, but I just wanted to be worry-free and comfortable traveling. Low maintenance is the key. On the other hand, I wanted to make a statement, because I was going to present myself and my portfolio to some of the top modeling agencies in Europe. I wanted them to see me looking my best. I thought about bringing my wigs, but then I realized I really wouldn’t be representing me. I would be hiding under fake hair. No good.

After careful consideration and deep meditation, I decided to go with the flow and just keep my fro. I packed my Paul Mitchell foaming pomade, because it works fantastic for me when twisting my locks. I also packed Miss Jessie’s Curly Pudding, Jane Carter’s Scalp Renew and Paul Mitchell’s Super-Charged Moisturizer. These products — as a team work — wonders for my hair. In addition to my products I brought lots of silk scarves to wrap my hair with. Silk scarves help with any hair breakage and are fabulous for wearing out and about during the day. They are light, airy and free-flowing.

One day, while catching some sun at a cool beach in Mykonos, Greece, a wavy-haired lady from New York City came up to me and said, “I love your hair. I wish my hair was like yours. Have you ever heard of Miss Jessie’s Curly Pudding? I use that product to keep my hair smooth.” I starting laughing and said, “Yes, I have it right here in my back pack. It’s great stuff.” It was pretty cool to sit on a beach in Greece and talk about being naturally curly and loving it.

Thank goodness I made the decision to let my hair go “naturale” on my honeymoon. It turned out to be very successful. I did a high fashion photo shoot and was able to establish some great relationships on my trip. I was also complimented throughout my journey on my lovely fro. I communicated with people that didn’t speak my language. My hair and my smile was the universal language. Thank goodness for my God-given natural! My honeymoon hair blues are forever washed away.
