My hair is… beautiful!

Before we went on lockdown, I… treated my hair at the salon. Having Hilda’s hands scrubbing my scalp. Getting to those very itchy areas. Running warm water through the freshly scrubbed scalp and a thorough blow-drying. Leaving my hair silky, straight, and soft. Ooohh..

My hair routine has changed now…  and I have not been able to get a proper wash since the lockdown 🙁 not that I can’t wash my hair myself, but it’s different when Hilda washes it. Hairstyle? I’d go for short beaded braids with a fringe, just to get out of my comfort zone a bit.

The challenge with my hair is… that I’ve never really known how to take care of my hair myself. Hence I found it easier for Hilda or someone else to do it. The lockdown has challenged me beyond my biggest imagination. From combing my hair out. Which I find very painful to washing in the shower. And to “trying” to plate myself, so I at least look decent for work.

My lockdown hairstyle is… DIY cornrows with a wig on top because my own cornrows do not really good that good.

Top tip(s) anyone with your hair type can use to keep hair healthy and strong this winter? Keep it plated and don’t wash it too often.

My favourite ORS product to use is the… Moisturizing Lotion.
