It was a beautiful day. Downside, I got drenched in the rain after dressing up. Lol.
First Sunday with Twists out
Finally got to do it. I am fully dedicating my hair to its naturality. Let's do it!
Preshampoo with Dabur Vatica
Then prew-washed with shampoo prior to detoxing
My hair at this time needed tlc.. just after taking out braids
I didn't have my usual apple cider vinegar and bicarbonate of soda so I used:
Lime and very little amount of salt they are both good for cleansing.
This was my first time ever
Then shampoo which had Ginger for dealing with dry and over worked scalp. It did soothe my scalp
After shampoo, I deep conditioned with some henna and placenta extract and olive oil too.
After the washing process came the twisting one.
I used water moisturiser on my damp hair.
Then involved glycerine to lock in the moisture after sprinkling some rose water to my scalp
Pre twist:I used carrot oil first
while damp, I began the twist with shea butter.
During twisting I ensured the two parts did not mix in the process because it messes up the entire twist out.
I left it on for five days to get the perfect curls
Taking out the Twists
I took each each twist out with Olive oil on my fingers to give it a glossy look and help my scalp.
I detangled gently leaving each part
to stay out.
It turned out as planned but I wish I have a longer hair.
Random: From Africa
So I visit this company with a friend where she is to be interviewed for a job. The company direction looked dodgy initially and then we started out after a sumptuous meal at Shoprite.
We walked about 4 mins to get to the company. The external look wasn't pleasant and the environment very non-professional looking. We got in, walked up the stairs and we pressed the doorbell. The sound was not professional at all, it was some long ring that you'd hear at a student apartment (if they have any)... but seriously??? We got laughing from the door. The look of the office was okay to give some credit. The receptionist's computer wasn't a desktop but a worn-almost-dead laptop, she was practically doing nothing on it.
Then came a call and another receptionist takes the call and all she said was 'hello'. No introduction of the company and greeting?
My best friend said during the interview the first question asked was "can we meet you?" seriously? That means introduce yourself. Then an interviewer tries to tell my friend about Australia he hasn't been but were my friend studied and worked for some years. Why do people think they know so much? Worse, he had the wrong information... lol. I am so tired. My fingers are hurting from the long day.
Somehow the Prayer get answered
Currently I am in Africa on a business tour. In this part, electricity can be a scarce commodity. So last night I slept in the heat, my batteries on all my devices were out! Being a techie person, these are essential parts of my life, i couldn't do work the next day without power.
The last charge on one of my my phones and iPad got me connected to a close friend on Facebook. I was mentioning my frustration to my friend. I told my friend I was going to pray for power to return... lol
I got praying for electricity and somehow I had this strong faith it will return soon. Thank God, the weather has been fair, slept off. Two hours later I open my eyes to electricity. Isn't the Lord good? Apparently, electricity returned shortly after I went to bed. What faith can do.
