Hi guys! This summer I will be spending 5 weeks volunteering at a school in Jaipur, India.
I'm SUPER excited, but also at a total loss of how to deal with my hair over there. It's going to be very hot and humid of course, so I probably can't just go product-free. I am thinking about packing like 5 herbal essences gels, since I go through about one a week, but that seems like such a waste of precious packing space/weight.
Anyways, does anyone know of any CG friendly hair products that I can purchase in India? Or any tips about traveling with curly hair in general?
On a side note, my mom is encouraging me to get a keratin treatment before I go. I'm interested, but also terrified that it'll destroy my curls forever. Any insight to that would also be very appreciated!

Avoiding humectants and protein!
Bring the gels. It will be easier. (Just check they're not humectant-heavy if your location is humid).
From what I've been reading, bkts permanently alter your hair and curl pattern. So, if you like your curls, don't get a bkt.
