Hurricane Sandy/Power loss/Water contamination

Where do I even start?

It's been rough for most New Jersey residents since "Sandy" made land. My family and I have been dealing with power outage and other "headaches" since last Monday. This is the reason I have not blogged lately. I had planned to do more posts on my protective styles, however the so called super storm's aftermath, has not allowed me to do so. And I am still without power.

I did not have phone service for several days and have been unable to go to work for a whole bunch of reasons that can be rightly blamed on "sandy".

Thank God my cellular service has returned and I can blog using my phone.

Another aftermath of "sandy" that is hair-related is the water contamination and for that reason, my baby and I did not get our hair washed this weekend as planned. Instead, I used diluted ACV with pH 4.0, to cleanse our scalp. She is still wearing the threaded plaits from my last post of her hair, which are two weeks old now.

After cleansing our scalp with diluted ACV, I moisturized our hair with water and Aloe Vera juice, covered with a plastic cap for one hour. I then sealed with Shea Moisture Reconstructive Elixir (review coming soon). This product is a combo of different oils.

If our water is still contaminated by next weekend, then I would have to used several gallons of distilled water to wash our hair.

I have a video demonstrating how I care for my natural hair in yarn wraps. I actually lost power while I was editing the video. Hopefully, it will be uploaded this week if power is restored soon

Please pray for us.

  3. Oh, no. I didn't realize you were in NJ. I'm glad you made it through the storm. You are really dedicated...blogging on your phone lol

    I'm glad to see you're taking care of your hair needs despite the obvious obstacles.

  4. I just got off the phone with my sister, who also lives in NJ. She filled me in on all that she and her neighbors are going through. She hasn't been able to get to work either and because her job has no contingency plans, there will probably be a financial aftermath after the storm's aftermath. All I can say is hang in there . . . power is being restored slowly but folks are slowly coming back on line. Stay warm and stay strong. I add you and your family to my growing hurricane prayer list.
