    I have sisterlocks and plan to do some type of updo.  I haven't planned any further than that.  This thread has sparked me to begin browsing photos for ideas.  Thanks ladies!

      My wedding was during the hot season for my location, so plan accordingly! My hair was a virgin Indian weave and it seized up like you wouldn't believe! I like my weaves to be on the silky side, but decided for my wedding to go with a weave more in line with my hair's natural texture. It looked TOO real if you can understand me, lol. The weave became big, puffy, and frizzy in that kind of humid Mexican heat. My own hair does that so it was super annoying to pay money to deal with my own type of hair, lol. It was very hard to style as a result. The hotel hairdressser did what she could, but my hair had almost zero movement.

       

      I thought it was the type of weave. However, I went to Jamaica in November 2011 for my sister's wedding and used my traditional weave. Jamaica isn't as humid as Mexico, but the weave can still feel limp and lifeless in such conditions. I wet set my hair and the curls came out much better than the pure virgin Indian, but it was hot. If anyone chooses weaves, aim for the store bought versions, rather than the absolutely virgin hair. I don't think they hold up well in heat, but the treated ones do. Just a consideration if you're going that route...

        Although it didn't turn out like you wanted, your hair (and your wedding) was beautiful!

          I have a friend who lives in Jamaica keeping an eye and ear out for a natural hair stylist. I'll post any info I come across here. I've been in touch with Rashel, but I haven't seen any of her hairstyling work.
