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.
