Calling all ladies and Calling all ladies and man buns!!
If you are reading this, I am sure you have been in my 'fins' before and can relate to that moment you were 40 feet deep, and all of the sudden you felt that unforeseen feeling of your hair getting caught in the back of your BC...ouch! You just got done chasing after that turtle, queen angel fish or eagle ray, and you go from the best feeling ever to an unfortunate gasp of your air realizing what has just happened. Without hesitation you reach for your wrist to see if you have an extra one and that is when you realize your only hope is 40 feet up in a completely different atmosphere...you look down in the sand where you are and come to the realization that it is lost forever, and by now, it belongs to Davy Jones and his “locker.”
They are called many things, hair ties, scrunchies, rubber bands, hair bows, you name it; but whatever you call yours we all know it is better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it. Especially, when you have another 30 minutes on a dive and the salt water is tangling up your hair by the second. The absolute worst is when you surface, sit back down on the boat and your regulator hoses and hair have now become one.
We have so much to do on a daily basis, particularly when it comes to vacations. I know you have to pack for the husband, the kiddos and yourselves, but if you are a frequent diver, like me, do yourself a favor and bring that detangler spray, hairbrush, and extra hair ties with you! Just drop them in a dry bag you are going to pack anyway for the dive boat, and trust me, your locks and fellow lady divers on board will thank you later.
My name is Bekki- I hope everyone has a great day, and for the sake of your sanity, hair, and photos, please do not forget those hair ties!
