Hair goes on Vacation 

Hey World,

Let me start by asking a question. Am I the only one who has ever decided to skip wash day before going on vacation? 

Well that’s what I did. My family and I went on a vacation and my unwashed hair followed us. It followed us to the hotel and decided it was too tired to be washed on the first night. The second night…it made the same decision. Would you believe that?! That hair followed us everywhere we went. The second day of a missed washed day, it hid under a scarf. 


Let’s just say I defeated my hair and finally washed it on the third day but I didn’t remember to take any pictures. However, I have one of me today with the same hair…


Have a lovely day. 
Always me,

Sandeey

Where are you going?

Hey World,

I have been watching my hair fall off my hair at an alarming rate. Where are you going my dear hair? I keep looking for ways to hide the damage being done. 


Well, other days I just dare to bare:


I wear my baldness out like a mother’s badge of honour. I’d forgo having hair on my edges for my sweet Lausanne any day! 

In other news, my baby was baptized this month:


As I type this, I have not washed my hair and I have work tomorrow. Can someone beg these kids for me? It’s going to be wash midnight and not wash day. Wish me luck please!

Yes, this is such a random post.

Time is key 

Hey World,

Let’s go straight to the point. Time is very important for natural hair. Last week, for the first time ever, I took my time to properly detangle my hair. It was important for me to do so because my hair is shedding at 1 million strands per second (yes, I’m overreacting) due to postpartum shedding. When this happens, my hair gets tangled up and I spend too much time trying to comb it. 

While in the shower, I sectioned my hair and washed as usual. However after applying conditioner, I took time to gently rid my hair of the shed hair (Lausanne and Marcello allowed me to do this). When twisting my hair, I could easily run a comb through without any problems and I didn’t spend much time. 

I hope I always have time when washing my hair to repeat this. Please wish me luck!

Still on the edge(s)…

Hey everyone,

So guess what is still trending in my life? My edges and its successful attempt at falling out. I’m still watching my hair fall out and I don’t think there is anything I can do about it. 


On a lighter note, it’s summer time and I have put my Shea Butter away. Avocado oil is doing enough for me and I don’t need my Shea Butter at the moment. I will bring it back out when the weather gets cooler. 

So my current hair regimen is:

(1) Cantu Shea Butter Leave in Conditioner on freshly washed hair. (2) Avocado oil. That’s it!!!

This helps my hair stay soft and moisturised for at least two days. I refresh during the week with a spray of water from my wonderful spray bottle followed by Avocado Oil. The end!!!!

The Dark Ages

Hey People!

I have been living under a stone. I have been living in the Dark Ages. I have been living under a stone in the Dark Ages! Let me explain.

Let us rewind to my last wash day. After my hair had stopped dripping underneath the microfibre hair towel wrap, I followed my TLC hair moisturizing routine. The only difference was that I swapped my Jojoba Oil for Avocado Oil. Well, the difference was clear! Where was I when people were using that oil and praising it? Why did I not listen? Why after almost seven natural haired years am I just trying Avocado Oil out? Immediately the Avocado Oil touched my hair, I understood. It was so soft (emphasis on so) and I could easily detangle before twisting. I still used Shea Butter afterwards. I love how my hair felt.

Last night, I sprayed my hair with my oil and water mix and used Avocado Oil while twisting my hair into four places. This was to preserve my hairstyle for the next day and keep it moisturized. Did it work? Of course!


It’s clear I’m still saying bye to my edges 😦 

I do not really care to learn about hair in the scientific sense. I do not really want to know why Avocado Oil works. I just know it works. I prefer knowing my hair and what works for me. I have tried and tested different products and have had fun doing it. Getting too technical really takes the fun out of being a kinky coily haired woman. I wonder if I’m the only one who thinks this way. Do you think this way?

Too Chicken?

Hey World,

Just a quick post for you. I’m still working on a post about part 2 of my wash day. 

So, the question is: was I too chicken to unravel my twists? The answer is No! This morning, with the aid of Jojoba Oil on my palms, I unraveled my twists. I decided not to separate them and styled it to work.


I didn’t take enough pics because I didn’t have time! 

As I said before, short post!

Always me,

So Far So… I Don’t Know

Hey World,

This is a post about my wash day. Or should I say part one of it. Lausanne decided when my wash day would be and it wasn’t last night. Since Her Highness decided I had no choice but to wash my hair this morning, I embarked on the journey. 

Let’s just say, so far so…I don’t know. This is what I’ve been able to to till now (2pm Netherlands time). 

Step one: Part my hair in two 


Step Two: Spray with my water and oil mix, followed by a generous amount of coconut oil. 


Step Three: Braid my hair in four parts…and rush to soothe my screaming baby. No time for pictures! 

Step Four: Wash my hair with black soap and follow with conditioner (at the speed of light) and rinse. 


Step Five: Use a towel to remove excess water (dabbing and not rubbing) and cover with a microfiber hair towel…and calm fussy baby down. 


Step Six: Pray to God I have time to do something nice to my hair before work tomorrow! 

Always me,

Hopeful Sandeey
