#CaribbeanCrawl: About The Vacation Hair That Survived Carnival
So many of you had nice things to say about my hair during #CaribbeanCrawl (love. y’all!) so I wanted to dedicate a post just to my hair extensions. I tried out a new organic hair line for the trip, Echelon Hair, and was obviously super happy with the results.
I got Echelon Hair Coil Curly texture so it would blend more seamlessly with my natural textured hair. And I loved it when I saw it on Jessica White:
Upon receiving my Echelon Hair, I immediately noticed that the hair felt silky and the bundles (which I picked up in 14″, 18″ and 22″) were thick enough to cover my whole head.
But that’s just scratching the surface on what I loved about the hair. For one, it was extremely versatile. When I started the trip, the curls were more defined and less voluminous:
More defined curls in Trinidad
But Danielle of Style and Beauty Doctor had the genius idea of brushing the hair out which gave me a full, wavy look I just loved:
Brushed out and defined (after a braid out) in Tobago
Once the curls were brushed out, I had the option of wearing them as is or doing a quick braid out (literally, four braids across my whole head) for more definition:

Brushed out with less curl definition in Barbados
Secondly, my Echelon Hair was resilient. Over the course of the trip, I got paint poured on the hair at a Carnival fete:

After the paint
And I swam in the ocean and in the pool:
I even snorkeled:
To go under water, I simply braided the hair in two braids (which I pulled into a bun). After swimming, I washed, conditioned (with Sienna Naturals leave-in conditioner) and detangled the hair. Amazingly, the hair held up until the end of the trip even with all my activities.
I would definitely recommend Echelon Hair in general but especially during vacation since it is fuss-free and easy to manage. I may get Kinky Straight next – it’s gorgeous!
