My sister's wedding is at the end of this month. I don't know how I should do my hair. 

Since I'm natural I'm wondering if I should get a kinky curly to make blending with the humidity easier. But because of the humidity it might swell. 

I'm wondering if I could pull off something long (18-20" that's long on me because I have a short torso Embarrassed) and wavy as long as I use a closure. But it might be too hot for all of that hair.

I'm wondering if I should do a ks or iy and then I won't have to worry about a closure. I could just have a leave-out. 

I really don't know what I should do. Ouch Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I feel like my options are limited since I'm natural and my hair isn't that long.

Take a KS wig and a KC wig. KS for the wedding, KC for the swimming, activities, etc.

Actually, it will be extremely hot. Put in KS clip ins. That is what I would do. That way you can make sure that your scalp is not soggy after swimming.

@510QUEEN No she wasn't. LOL But, I definitely thought she was going to be on some show. She's quite entertaining.

Girl braid that hair up in a bee hive and get a deep wave or natural wave sew in with a closure. You could also get a nice wig or make one. That kinky curly hair is a nightmare of heat blowing on your neck in the summer time. 

Nice 20 inches and longer. Ain't nobody got time for tending to leave out while on vacation. I'm picturing you in that hair style that concubine has in the Naomi thread. Her hair is DELISH!!!

Girlllllll Jamaica is extra hot in the summer....so bare that in mind. I mean everywhere sweating. You could full head weave with closure something in the wavy or curly family.

this is why I am not going to get my hair done before I go to Jamaica within the next week. I already know it is going to be hot like no other and my leave out will not act right! I'll probably wear a wig. My sister is getting her hair done and I'm like "you can keep that" lol LOLLOL

Lawdhammercy! Why is hair so difficult? I went from looking for closures to looking for KC and now back to looking for a closure. I should have gone with my first instinct with the long and wavy. Now it's just a matter of who to buy it from. Pinch

Maybe I'll also get some KC for later in the summer.

It's been really hot here for the last couple days. I agree with the KS and KC recommendation

Update: I ordered some qhp in M2M a couple of days ago. I just ordered a closure from Queen Weave on aliexpress. I would have bought the closure from qhp also, but the in stock density is 130%. Queen weave is 90-100% and thats easier to tweak. I reeeeeeally hope this works out. I'll update when I get the hair installed.

I am having this issue also.  I am going down to JA next week and I still don't know which hair to put in I want something that will still look decent after it gets wet.

get something light like a body wave. I think curly hair may be too much with the heat

like other people stated I think leave out is not good because you will have to tend to it after every activity do something with a closure or full head weave. if you head sweat only you would no because the weave still will look decent but if you leave your hair out the weave is going to be straight after swimming and your hair is going to be kinky and wild and that's not what you want.SmileSmile

Your best bet is to get wet & wavy or curly hair...
