MOST women would squirm at the thought of having greasy locks and no hair straighteners for a month.
For one Goffs Oak girl, the nightmare became reality when she had to wash in the sea with coconut soap and no shampoo or conditioner.
However, the stress wasn't too much for Geri Masucci, as she was to busy sunning herself in the South Pacific as part of the hit reality TV show Shipwrecked.
Fans of the Channel Four programme, which features two teams the Sharks and Tigers competing for �70,000, would have seen the 22-year-old on TV over the last fortnight.

On Sunday viewers witnessed Geri's team, the Sharks, scoop the prize money with 17 people to the Tigers 14.
Of her experience, dancer Geri, of Cuffley Hill, told the WHT: "It was absolutely amazing. The experience is overwhelming and everyone is so lovely."
In this year's fifth series of the reality TV programme the winning Sharks were left shocked when they were told just one islander, who turned out to be Greg Jones, would take home the prize money.
When asked if she was disappointed with not getting a cut of the money, Geri, who was a latecomer to the series, said: "For me, it was more about experience; I wasn't there long enough to think about money.
"Some people are bitter about it, but I love Greg, so good on him.
"We still won as a tribe."
Asked what advice she would give to any future contestants, Geri, who spent a month on the island in November, said: "Just be your self.
"I think some people were being fake on the show but you just have to be honest with yourself and most importantly have fun!
