Thumbs down How to travel with curly hair?

well i normally used to straighten my hair and after a long flight it felt weird and greasy... but I want to keep it curly for when I see my family after a long time but without it getting ruined. It's a 15 hour flight...so should I put it in a pineapple in the plane? will that prevent the weird feeling of hair after a flight? Any suggestions or what you guys do...thanks

how about a curly side braid? That's what I usually do if I'm on a plane because leaving it down it just not gonna work. There's something about airplane seats that totally destroy anyone's hair, curly or not.

when i fly i gotta fly for 21 hours, so i always have at least one break. when i first get on the plan i put it up in a pineapple or a loose braid or somthing when i know im going to try to sleep. then a few hours before i arrive i take it out and refresh my curls. i always bring a few things along and go to the toilets. then when you arrive you feel alot better and refreshed.

I must admit I cheat when flying. You can do about 8 braids or twists and put on a stylishly wrapped Tichel, makeup and dangling earrings and even if there are unforeseen delays, your hair will not suffer. I especially like to go this route for international travel. Of course, a bun with a flower works too.

I tend to make long drives. Like 8 hours. I like to braid or twist then cover it with a scarf. I do the same when I fly.
