On eggs, mayonnaise and honey

Two nights ago out of sheer boredom and annoyance with the drying effect of alcohol and  the other ingredients I cannot eat nor spell that are found in my conditioner, I went old school.  I just about forgot that there was a time when moisture immediately meant a concoction of beer, eggs, mayonnaise or some other moisture and protein rich food found in the fridge.  Now, a store bought product with the right description coined by marketing executives, dashes with the word natural and organic, detracts us from reading the labels.

It worked out well. I tried some bantu knots or what I called 'chinese bumps' as a child. The very next day I tried to dress like the items I had in my hair.

be good. do better. look your best.

( I so need a new camera or a photoshop tutorial)

also, what products did you use for the bantu knots?


Thanks for your kind comment. I used a mixture of honey, water and olive oil after drying my hair. Then a tiny bit of a really expensive product Miss Jessie's Curly Buttercreme to twist. .....this product is pricey but it works for my hair.

As for hectic life and style....start small. Be conscious about it and look your best self!
