Braids can be a lovely style of adornment to the head of hair.
I used to like when my hair was put into French braids in my youth- the look is very becoming in adults too.
I learned to bread around nine years of age through observing others then practicing on my doll heads.
Later in life I began to braid hair for others- some even paid me to do their hair.
Someone had recommended I do braiding on the side during my twenties to make extra money but that really was not my thing I would only braid hair for certain people when they asked as a special favor to them while they were nice enough to compensate me for my time.
I have been wearing scrunchies since the 90’s.
They are the best hair-ties as far as I am concerned. They are flexible within their elasticity; they are durable without wearing out too soon- even while they continuously get wet.
Scrunchies do not pull-out strands of hair by getting tangled up as rubber bands and regular elastic barrettes do.
They come in a variety of fabrics/textures and colors.
However, I do not like the shiny/glossy velvet-type scrunchies. The satin ones are okay though I prefer the cottons ones only.
I currently keep my ponytail of natural hair that is growing fast and healthy in two comfortable scrunchies- one secured at the top of the tail and the other secured near the bottom.
I always keep a supply of these lovely hair adornments on hand at home for later use.
My mother taught me early on in life to be clean, especially with my body.
I was one who loved to take baths as a kid. As an adult I have a love for the shower.
My family used a variety of different quality brand name soaps throughout the years, but the one that stood out the most to become my favorite was dove bar soap and bodywash.
I love the sensitive and exfoliating bodywash and beauty bars out of all the varieties. Both have a great light-smelling fragrance that is not harsh and that does not irritate the skin.
Dove is sulfate free and healthy for the skin. It keeps my tone nice, soft, and smooth.
I even wash my hair with dove.
I always feel clean without any left behind residues.
Just fresh, clean, and smelling good!
