Maintaining kinky, black hair abroad is no joke! And everyone knows that black women do not play when it comes to our heads. The first time I left the country to study abroad, I prepared for everything except my hair. I did not know how scarce black hair care products were in other cities abroad and got a rude awakening when I barely made it through the semester. I changed my ways when I left to teach abroad, having learned my lesson when dealing with my 4c natural hair. Black hair abroad is not as taboo as it used to be, especially with the increase of expats and black travelers in bigger, more international cities everywhere. But after a few different adventures abroad, I have black hair travel tips for all my naturals.
