Hello folks, how are you doing this week? Trust you had a great weekend.
Well, my weekend was short, really SHORT. I mean, I couldn’t even get to do much.
Let me explain that more explicitly.
So, the weekend started Friday evening and I had to attend a prayer vigil. My mum actually invited me to the vigil and it felt good to be able to just talk to God, worship and carry out some spiritual exercise. Lols, I know I’m going all spiritual on you, but hey, I believe in prayers.
Back to my story, so Saturday morning I got back home, slept from 7am until 11am, woke up and mom had prepared Pap and Akara.
I ate, washed my clothes, did some chores and then it was time to head to the salon (now, this is the highlight of my story).
Permit me to digress a bit to this hair matter.
I’ve been having a lot of issues related to hair making recently; first off, I’m a 4c/4b kind of naturalista, i.e., my hair is not texturized or relaxed; it is not short and not so long too, it is soft but not full. Hope you have an idea of how my hair is like?
My favorite hair-do for now is threading, cos it lasts longer than other styles I make, and it is easy to uninstall. I use baby wool or brazillian wool to thread.
I always dread losing my hair cos I would have to start thinking of the next style to make; so, I try to make styles that would last for at least a month. So far, only threading does this for me (N.B, I don’t do weave-ons/fixing)
I don’t like braids too, cos it is difficult to uninstall amongst other reasons(I know right, quite pathetic??).
So, I’m limited to twists and threading as my go-to hairstyles, and even the twists don’t last as long as I would love them to. In case you have any suggestion, kindly let me know in the comment section. Thank you.
Back to my story, so yesterday I had to make my hair (threading of course), the hair I was carrying was a weaving I made with wool that was really rough (just after one week?).
Anyways, I got to my hairdresser’s salon at about past 2pm, and didn’t finish making my hair until about 7.40 pm or thereabout (did u scream WHAT, too?).
Almost six hours making my hair.
And that’s how my Saturday went, I was supposed to attend a conference, but couldn’t make it. So, I got home really tired, ate, prayed and hit the sack; all my weekend plans were nowhere to be found.
I woke up Sunday morning, prepared for church, and then zoomed to church in the rain.
After I got home from church, I washed the remaining half of my clothes, did some stuffs, selected my outfits for the new week, had to go back to church again for a cell meeting and all I was left with was a few hours to accomplish all that I had planned for the weekend. You feel my pain too, yeah?
With the few hours left, I had to:
1. work on the social media pages of The Esthitude Place and The Outliers Network. Kindly visit the pages on Facebook and Instagram using this link and this.
2. Revisit my list of weekend to-dos and tried to do some of them.
3. Work on blog posts for the week ( this is one of it), before I hit the sack.
And that’s how I spent my weekend. How did your weekend go? I’m sure it was longer and more eventful than mine.
Dear ladies, what is the longest duration that you can carry a hairstyle?
