It did cross my mind....
This is my dog's hair. Just one stroke of the brush to her neck, yielded all of this soft downy hair! As my little one handed me the brush and I pulled the hair out, a thought ran across my mind as I tilted my head and let out an audible "hmmm..." My mind harkened back to a small ad in the back of a knitting magazine that was offering to clean, comb and spin your pet's hair. While I was initially repulsed by the thought, it didn't seem that bad when I laid my hands on that soft fur, that would be totally dyeable. Then a second thought, more work and I tossed it into the garbage.
The RUSTIFICATION of little No
We are all sick...again! Tis the season, I guess. Started with the little one, who is always affected the worst...poor thing!
Mommy why is it rusty right here?
'Cause we have to keep wiping your drippy nose. Go get the vitamin E.
I got the golden E, mom.
It'll be better tomorrow. kiss
That term is soooo obnoxious to me! As if the Lord made a mistake by freely distributing the kinks and naps that is so prevalent in our "group". Yet "being blessed with good hair" is so ingrained (bordering on obsession) in our culture that we don't even cringe at the sound of it. I've been natural for 2 years and have enjoyed stronger, longer hair. Yet in light of the 2 hour procedure that is my weekly routine, I would lub, lub, lub, to find a magic potion that would transform the following procedure to simply wash 'n wear!
Step1: Wash and deep condition (30 min)
Step2: Add protectant product, separate and braid into managable pieces (15 min)
Step3: Blow dry separate sections individually, add pressing creme & rebraid. (30 min)
Step4: Hot press each section, divide into smaller sections, twist and pin into place (45 min). Tie up for at least a coupla days, rest tired arms and avoid rain and humidity at all cost. Repeat procedure every 6 days!
Dear Lord, thank your this wonderfully textured hair, I will not complain. Please let me have a break in heaven with wash and wear. Amen.
