Hi ladies! Feels like forever since I was last here. Hope you have all been well. Anyway last wash day was a henna wash day since I was preparing my hair for a braiding process. I didn’t get my new regular brand of finely sifted henna so I had to settle for the old not so finely sifted one and do the sifting myself at home. Didn’t take too long I after which I mixed it with aloe vera juice fresh from the leaf, lemon black tea and a teaspoon of vinegar to aid in the dye release. I applied the mixture to damp hair and let it sit for almost three hours. Halfway through the process my aunt turned up at the house with some very ripe avocados and on impulse I blended half of one and applied it over the henna for the last thirty minutes. It’s funny how the universe conspires to turn our thoughts into actions; just a few days prior I was looking at avocados at the grocery store and thinking it was time for an avocado DC then I remembered that I needed to henna instead and shoved that avocado DC life thought to the back of my mind then this happens!
Almost three hours later I rinsed out the henna-avocado mix, shampooed with TRESemme naturals and then conditioned with this conditioner that I picked up at the grocery store called Organics which is made in South Africa according to the information on the label, not sure if it is affiliated to any other “Organics” brand elsewhere in the word. I quite liked it actually, it provided great slip and detangling my almost 10 weeks post hair in shower was a breeze. The comb was just gliding through my hair I will definitely repurchase this conditioner it has aloe vera and herbs as part of the ingredients. I only wish it came in a larger size bottle; maybe It does I don’t know but they only had the small size 200ml at the store where I picked it up from on my way home one evening. It has a nice scent and is quite cheap as well but I would love the larger size bottle since I go through a lot more conditioner than I do shampoo. They had the shampoo from the same brand as well on the shelf; I may pick it up on my next trip to this particular grocery store. Back to hair, rinsed, shampooed, detangled, I t-shirt dried turban style and then applied coconut oil as a sealant on damp hair. I left every other product application to my hair and scalp for the next day in readiness for getting braided soon.
