Here's a bit of Wednesday fun to cheer you up at midweek. I think there is a huge misconception that naturals take themselves seriously and never do anything wrong. Well this segment is here to break that myth. If you have a story to share, please email it to me!!
My last skiing holiday was full of hair mishaps. I'll start with the first lesson I learned........velcro and natural hair do not mix!
Skiing actually makes you quite hot but the African in me fears the prospect of chilly cheeks or frost bitten lips and so I decided to wear a balaclava (or ski mask). My husband being the gadget person found a balaclava that could be worn in different ways including as a scarf (found a pic on wiki - image credit!)
I decided to test all the ways you could wear it. There is a velcro strip (also referred to as the nemesis) at the top which allows you to open the top so it can slide down to become a scarf.
Within 2 seconds a fist full of hair was firmly stuck in the velcro strip.
The lesson: Velcro and natural hair do not mix (lol, just incase you didn't know)
The cost: About 4-5 inches of hair had to be cut off but plus side, I've been torn between cutting my hair to reduce maintenance time and trying to grow it longer just because, looks like I'll be reducing maintenance time :)
Next Wednesday, second lesson from the ski trip - don't sleep with aphogee in your hair.
