Hair Musings #3

Hello everyone! This post should actually be called hair and life musings since so much has happened. Sorry for the lack of posts but I’m on vacation for a bit. I came to visit my sister in the US. Naturally, I had to buy some hair products, tools and accessories to take back with me. I hope I didn’t go too out of control. 🙂 Here’s a taste of what I have so far:

Yes, I had to buy Dudu Osun soap here. I brought some with me but it ran out so quickly. There’s hard water here so the soap runs out quickly. 🙁 I’m a bit jealous that it’s so easy to find products here. Nigeria is improving and it’s so much better than when I moved back initially. I think we’ll get there eventually.

My trip has been good so far. The weather is very nice. Usually, it’s terribly hot this time of year. However, it’s better than winter in my book. My hair is still in the twists but I plan to take them out next week. I’ve noticed that my hair has been growing quicker since I’ve been here. I’m not sure why but I’ll take it. If you check my hair stats, I need a trim. I want to do it while I’m here but I’m not sure where to go.

I started exercising again. For some reason, I tend to be more motivated to work out while I’m in the states. I still don’t like it though. I’ve been running and doing Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred. Needless to say, it’s been dealing with me. I’m so sore. 🙁 I know it will get better if I keep it up but for now, I will nurse my sore muscles.

Tough but effective.

How are things with you and your hair?
