Hair things – holiday hair

In our hot South African summer the air tends to become quite dry.
So to keep our lovely locks hydrated here’s a few tips to make sure we retain our length.

The usual rules always apply.
1. Wash and condition your hair at least twice a month; use a gentle sulphate free shampoo.

2. Deep condition weekly; a protein rich DC with conditioner and your mix of oils with a plastic cap, helps lock in the moisture in your hair.

3. Where a protective style; by braiding your hair you reduce daily manipulation. This means that your ends will be protected from friction and as your hair grows it will retain its length. Make sure you don’t pull the roots too tight, especially along the edge.

4. Make sure you sleep in a satin scarf or bonnet; this helps your hair from extreme friction to the pillow. Also, you can keep your ends sealed and braided.

5. Moisturize moisturize moisturize; everyday keep your moist with a water spritz and some oil to seal it in.

Keep this regimen going and your hair won’t suffer the holiday heat.
Much love

Husband

There’s a man I met about 7 -8 years ago. He was a very gentle soul who could charm most people to liking him.

Thanks to technology I was able to communicate with this man almost every day. We became close, we knew each other regardless of what connected us.

From his childhood experiences I could tell that his soul was slightly broken. That’s when I saw that he loves people and he has amazing social skills.

Chapter after chapter I learn more and more things through, because and about him.
I chose him to be my family.
He is Eric.
He is the husband
He is mine. 🙂

The hair saga

fe8e148c07a7bc48320e6702a68b495f  THE HAIR SAGA

It has come to my attention that 2014 is the #noWeave year. Many men have been complaining about how they dont like weaves and many women have opted to go for the natural look.

 

Currently I have a fro, its grown from a #TWA (tiny winy Afro) to semi medium fro. i had a #BC (big chop) in 2012 and it was the saddest moment of my cosmetic life. it took me a year to get used to managing  it and only now in 2014 it is where i want it to be.

I still have a love for straight hair, however I don’t think its something my hair can pull off.

So there’s something still slightly confusing about all of this, men say they want women without weaves however a lot of men are attracted to females that have hair that can blow in the wind. its been a phenomenon that has been going on since 2013.

Speaking of confusion the ladies that love weaves however they can see that they don’t have a hairline left to weave on. there are groups that start like save the hairline, and many women do BCs because the have a major fail.

Dear weave lady

if your natural hair isn’t healthy, and you can see it dead, please try something different. cuz you tracks can’t hold on to nothing.

Dear Bald /girl

if you try it once and you check that your head isn’t the shape that’s suitable , or that your face doesn’t allow for such. please grow some hair just to blend it in.

Dear Natural sista

please invest in a fold-able mirror so that you can check there isn’t any objects in your hair. “i’m kinda of tired of people talking bad about naturals just because of that 1 dirty fro”

 

i hope that my letters will reach the appropriate people

Luv ya loads

xxoo

Side chick

Side chick edition 1
side-chick
aka
the other woman;  makhwapheni; the mistress; a female that is neither a male’s wife or girlfriend who has relations with the male while he is in another relationship

There are 2 types of these side chicks, 1 who knows that she is a side dish and 1 who is lead to believe that she’s more, I say she is lead to believe because even though there are signs some girls really believe the lies and end up thinking their the main squeeze.

In my opinion all people have their place, where there’s a demand, there’s a supply. The main girl, the wife, the Mrs are all placed closed to the heart, at the main house, with the family and even in public.
However the side chick also has her lane; she resides in the I’m chats, on the second phone, in dark alley ways and even on lonely Wednesday nights.
There comes a problem when lines get blurred. When side chicks act like main chicks or demand things that they don’t deserve.

There are rules to these things and I honestly believe people could have less stress if they just followed suit.

Let’s keep an eye on this 1, its gonna be a series. I’ll update edition 2 soon.

Safety

So I feel as if people are generally reckless with their lives and lives of other people. We all tend to think we’re invincible especially on the roads and especially at night.
I get scared every time I see an accident because I’m afraid its someone I know.

Please be safe out there, nomatter what it is you’re doing. There are too many of you dying and it feels like its on purpose!

Working lady

So in the visual communication department we’ve all been given a chance to go work as interns for WIL (work integrated learning).

A bunch of people that ive been talking have shown a bit of reluctance when it comes to looking for, finding and actually doing this internship course. a few other people have been hella excited and are as ready as ever to begin learning and get their fingers sticky with “real world” juices.

Personally i’m tired of being a student and i couldnt be more ready even if i wanted to. i dont know if my skills and knowledge is ready though but i believe that i can find a way to make it work.

so now the actual working experience.

Its only been 3 days and i actually think im settling in well, seems as if i might actually stay.

Theres one concern though, since i cannot stay in JHB at the moment, i have to travel to and from work. 

My question to you is, what is better? decreasing stress and using a faster mode of transport, or comfort. because between driving and using the Gautrain, they both amount roughly to the same amount. 

ill keep you updated.
