Henna Hair Treatment

My mother is an avid henna treatment fan, she uses it on both her hair and nails. Not even once have I ever seen her nails clear of henna, and for those who know her you can also attest to that. Every last Friday of the month she’d give me the task of mixing henna powder and plain water in a bowl to form a paste, let it rest for around 30 minutes then she’d apply it on her hair from the roots upwards.

It always starts with a drizzle and before you know it, it’s raining cats and dogs as they say.

Reggae in the sun is the name of the event, the irony is beyond I know.

Grey is the New Black

I dislike it when someone I’m not close to touches my hair. It’s nothing personal; it’s just uncomfortable for me. So back in primary school I stuck to one lady called Wangechi, okay maybe my mum did cause they were close friends and well I had to follow suit.

I get home at around thirty minutes past 8.p.m, I’m starving to death considering the last meal I had had been in the morning. I need food and lots of it for that matter, at this moment I don’t really care how ugly I look stuffing some red velvet cupcakes my sister brought home on Saturday.
