It's Almost Beach Time: Head-Wraps For Frizzy Hair

It's Almost Beach Time: Head-Wraps For Frizzy Hair

It’s getting warmer in NYC, and like every other Manhattan homo, I am dreaming of Fire Island, a 31 mile long island that is just 1.5 hours from the city and in some places only accessible by boat or seaplane (motor-vehicles are prohibited).

Two of the hamlets on the Island, the Pines and Cherry Grove, are gay summer resorts. People sunbathe on the beach all day and party all night. It’s the ultimate gay paradise, but you best bring your swag; it can be a catwalk.

While I love the beach, the beach is not kind to my Afro-textured hair! If your fabulous curly styling from Raimi and Lee are going to help, you’ll have to protect your tresses. So, this year when I head to my fashion-forward seaside adventures, I’m going to add head-wraps to my resort wear accessories.

Before we get down to business, I will preface my recommendations by saying that, as a half African-American, half Italian-American woman, I know all about and have experienced the politics of hair. But, whether I wear my hair natural, in braids with extensions, or relaxed, my Afro-textured hair requires a different level of care, especially when exposed to sun and salt.

Head-wraps are a stylish way of protecting my hair from the elements, and a quick-fix when I’m on vacation and don’t have time to primp between the beach, dinner, and dancing but still want to look chic. I found these great head-wrap inspiration photos on Pinterest. (If you’re not sure HOW to wrap your hair, see this 7 minute video tutorial featuring 12 different head-wrap styles.)
