Default Going on a trip to Nicaragua during its rainy season!

Hello everyone! I am posting on behalf of a friend, who is going on a missions trip to Nicaragua during its rainy season. She has wavy hair and it is very dry because she colors it so much. I was wondering if anyone had some product recommendations for her because she does not want her hair to be frizzy during this trip. Keep in mind that she is on a budget and because she is leaving very soon, will not have time to order anything online.

If you know any healthy brands of deep conditioner, cleanser, or gels, please post below!

Thank you girls!

I have no recommendations on products, but tell your friend to keep in mind that even-though is rainy season is also super hot, so most likely she will have to have her hair up most of the time.
Depending on the area she will be staying she might have to wash her hair with spring water (if she is staying on the north/mountain area) or just tap water. But tap water there usually has a lot of chlorine. Is also very dusty (some roads are just dirt roads), so hair gets dirty easily (the hot/sweaty weather doesn't help)
Let me know if your friend have more questions and apologies for not being able to actually recommend specific products

Overnight coconut oil soaks as often as possible to try to reduce the porosity, wash out with conditioner in the morning. Depending how soon we are talking she may have left it too late for anything else.

Agree protective styles/ up dos are the way forward, also protective headwear - hats, very close weave scarves - for any time the sun is even partially visible because coloured hair is very vulnerable to UV damage.
2a-2c, medium texture, porous/ colour treated. Three years CG, growing out mechanical and chemical damage = breakage and very high porosity. Past armpit length heading for waist.

CO-wash: Inecto coconut
Treatments: Komaza Matani, coconut oil, Hairveda Sitrinillah
Leave in: Fructis Sleek & Shine (old), Gliss ultimate volume, Inecto argan
Styler: Umberto Giannini jelly, Boots Essentials gel
Experimenting with: going back to basics
