Yo! guys, its been another minute :)
How did your day go? Mine was quite good. I ran away from the office at 5 sharp..like literally o. Put my phones in flight mode so no call or mails will come in...lol I still got home like very late tho, I was so pissed. I think I'll just stick to working late everyday from here on out. I get home faster and get more work done in the office.
So today I went blog stalking.. I'm not sure why but I just kept clicking on each person's ID and it turned out they all had blogs and the binge reading began. I discovered one crazy one...lmao! That guy is hilarious. I'm not sure how the link thingy works but the blog is something something "Confused and Young". I laughed ehn... Funny guy.
So two years and some months ago, I decided to start growing my hair again(I cut it when i was going to boarding house in 2001...oh how I wept). Seeing as y'all don't know me yet, long story short, I'm a church girl and as such, no relaxer for me(I never really liked the idea anyway unless u count the times when I'm trying to pack the hair into shuku or any fabulous style). Anywaiz, my hair has been natural and its been a journey.
At first, the hair grew so fast, everyone was surprised and I was doing absolutely nothing to the hair, just my regular corn rows(side shuku to the nape or all back). Fast forward January this year, my hair started breaking like no tomorrow. It became stringy and very dry. As usual, I couldn't be bothered.
So sometime around April, a friend in the office kept harping on me to take better care of my hair. According to her, I'm the only person she knows who has natural hair that breaks and chopped front hair..lol (my friend is dramatic like that) Anywaiz, I decided to stop putting my hair in corn rows and just let it breathe for a few weeks, its been 2 weeks and mehn... those "naturalistas" that have managed to pamper their hair to great lengths are the real MVPs.
That naturalista ish is not for the faint hearted. You have to wash, co-wash, and moisturise. See these 3 things I called? The arsenal of products that you will use to get optimal results is not a small something and their prices are on another level. I used to spend between 1,200 and 2,000 on my hair monthly and in one day (on top this natural hair wahala) I spent 10k on 3 hair products..*shines eye*
Beside all that tho, its been good so far. I'm reading a lot and learning a lot too. Spent a lil time giving my hair some much needed TLC yesterday and now its in these braids (that must not be shown to the world...lol) I do hope I get to work early so I can arrange it well before 8am.
So what do I do to the hair? I wash with conditioner on some days just to detangle but I found out yesterday that lots of water also helps. The I add my leave-in-conditioner and one Cantu stuff I bought that's supposed to moisturise and then I comb it out and put it in a bun... shikena. That's my safest hairstyle, I don't have liver to do anything else yet :)
Anywaiz, this post is getting too long, but that's the hair journey so far. Would have shared pictures but I'm a lil skeptical about putting my pics up on my blog. What if my boss stumbles on my blog...lmao.
So y'all, just imagine a baby faced lady, with an awesome personality(still working on the awesome part..but u get the gist)
Have a fab Wednesday y'all and be awesome!
