I'm black. (Pretty bold, huh?) I have a Beta trip and at the hotel there will be a pool (and my crush). I need to manage not messing up my hair at this pool (or in front of him). I need to know what to do to keep my hair looking nice without braids because I don't have time for that type of stuff.
When my hair dries it tends to be unflattering and I'm not down for that plus I can't do anything about it until I get to shower anyway so is there something I can do ahead of time to ease the process and that will help in the long run?
We're leaving on Monday so I do have time to put products in but I don't have anyone to do my hair so I gotta leave it natural-ish. (I straighten it and I might relax it but I'm still debating that. (I know that it would be a waste if I relaxed my hair and then went swimming but that's why I'm debating it.

The only thing I can think of is a swim hat/cup.

Corn rows with the curls at the end or you can do corn row and a detachable ponytail. With that you can pin it down and wrap up tight in a spiral pattern and secure with a ponytail holder. It'll be heavy af when it gets wet but it shouldn't fall off if you secure it well enough. The wider you're able to disperse the hair piece around the back of your head to pin down, the weight of the water will be easier to bear on your head. When you're ready to come out you can wrap it in a towel for a while to soak up as much water as you can until you're able to get back to the room and untwist/unpin it slowly and blow dry.0
