I had my hair done twice in the space of a day. I got it weaved on 04/04/14 and I hardly recognized myself. It was a weave I had used before but red this time. When the job was done, I looked like a redheaded scarecrow. The worst I have ever looked with a weave!
With a lot of misgivings and a heavy heart, I gave myself a night to sleep on it then see if everything would be rosy in the morning. After flat ironing and a lot of oiling on Saturday of 05/04/14, it didn’t look any better just more polished. It was then that I unequivocally proceeded to take it out.
Everyone at home was surprised by how fast I’d taken it out but I felt better going around with my God given hair than be seen with a bad hair job even if at home. Luckily, my mother had decided to get hers done too and fortunately for me, she let me get it re-done on 06/04/14.
Much as I have a veritable home salon, I find human hair weaves hard to maintain. I hate having to iron or curl whenever the need arises so I chose to use Expressions; a synthetic weave I first used in 2012 (but removed after two weeks) and a different weaveologist. Before it was all done, I felt and looked more like myself so much so that I thanked her profusely.
|The Shanah everyone knows|
Moles and all, this is the Shanah everyone is used to. Ironically, the compliments flew in immediately unlike the day before where everyone had looked and kept quiet.
