Hey friends. My Afro is out and about. Enjoying the fresh air, though not sure about the cold Johannesburg mornings and the evening indoor heating. I removed the braids because they were so untidy just after two weeks having them. I am relieved to have them off and I kind of missed my hair as well. So I am happy to see my hair. Yey! I removed my braids on Monday night, and then wore my hair in a big bun the next day to work.
In the evening of Tuesday, I did a protein treatment on my hair, click here for recipe. This time I did it on damp unwashed hair. I then shampooed and conditioned afterwards. Then I did the whole process of applying a leave-in conditioner, Shea butter and then my oil mix to seal the moisture. I put it up in 4 braids and hit the pillow. Aw! Exhausted. Not from doing my hair alone but from a long day. I need not bore you with the details. You know, being a working mum of three adorable but very active growing boys, a student, wife, yoh the list is endless and I’m sure you can figure out how I feel most days at 9 p.m.
Needless to say, in the morning my hair was nowhere near dry because it takes a day and a half to completely air-dry. I undid the chunky braids and then pulled my hair into a bun again. This is about the only style I can do with close to dripping wet hair. I applied some styling gel to tidy the edges a bit and I was good to go.
Much love and blessings
