Germany Hair

Do Bad Things Happen In Twos??

[dropcap style=”dark”]G[/dropcap]uten morgen folks…

It’s been a crazy week, me getting the schnupfen, my throat feeling like someone is scratching it from the inside, my head spinning each time I cough, long restless nights and let’s not even discuss meine Nase.

We had the Mündlich test and while I believe I did well, I made two silly mistakes! I somehow forget how to say 1980 in German. There I was confidently saying : neunzehntausendachtzig and they kept telling me no that’s not right and I’m thinking they are wrong. Then I get corrected. Neunzehnhundertachtzig. Yup, I could have hit my head against the wall. I guess I had a tiny bit of angst, being the first person to be questioned in my group and all.

My second mistake was when asked to spell my first name. Now I always get confused about vorname and nachname. I used to think they were the same cos I’m more used to name rather than vorname. So I spell the first letter of my second name and the Lehrer is shaking his head. So I quickly switch to spelling my first name.

All in all, I will say it was great. Now 2 seems to be my unlucky number cos I’ve always been getting 2 questions out of the lot wrong. We had another practice test and I scored 13/15…again with the two. Like my sis says, be grateful it’s only 2 you get wrong. So yes I totally am!!! Each module costs 220 euros so I better make every cent count!!!!

So anyways, last weekend I decided to try making a friend’s 8 year old daughter’s hair. That was such a task. She’s got really long hair, tangled worse than you can imagine and such curly edges. Now the fun part was deciding what to make. I considered shuku with bangs infront and twisted ends but I just wasnt working the twists into her hair. So ended up with the ‘clap‘ style and bangs in front with regular braids. She was such a perfect client…didn’t grumble too much when I was detangling. I kept her busy with farm heroes and candy crush. When she got bored with loosing, we ended up watching a german subtitled baby looney tunes. Trust me, as a beginner, best way to learn deutsch is kids tv programs!!!!

I’ve never gotten anyone’s hair done except mine and needed the challenge so she was just perfect. I sneakily added a cute bow from my work so her mum pays when she sees how much her kid loved the bow…..yeah, sneaky. Cutie refused to take it off until bedtime with a promise to let her wear it the next day.

Anyways, mum was impressed with my effort and today I’m going over to get braids done for her. I’m excited about an adult challenge and I do know it would be a huge one cos said mum is kinky haired with lost edges. I tried convincing her to do shorter styles but noooooo, she loves her long braids. I’ve never done braids perfectly so I’m thinking to get crochet twists for her instead. It’s easy on the edges and less stressful on the scalp.

So wish me luck!!!!

Speaking of hair, I ended my water only wash today. Took down my kinky extensions and applied my jojoba, castor and olive oil mix to my hair and ends. In a week I whip out my dudu osun shampoo for some hair spa according to Kandi.

It’s been two months I haven’t used any product and I did learn a lot regarding my hair. I will def build a routine soon that involvees not using products 6 months in a year. I retained quite a good amout of length, my always dry hair stayed moisturized for a full day. It was amazing. Will make a separate post about this next week.

I would also love to know how you care for your hair!!!!

Einen schönen Wochenende!!!!

  • The baby’s hair is so cute, you did a good job. As for my teeny afro, I use only thre products for now, virgin olive oil, shea butter and my darkand lovely leave in deep conditioner. They do wonders for me. I mentioned you on my new post, have a good day.

    • Thank you. I kind of miss the freedom of teeny afro. And i do agree with sticking to few products. Never heard of the dark and lovely product you mentioned. Will look out for it.
      Heading over to peek a sneak!
      Enjoy your weekend

  • Awww sorry to hear you’ve been a bit under the weather. Get well soon!!!

    And well done for getting such good marks on your test! 13/15 is 86.6666…% if I’m not mistaken. That’s an A+ in anyone’s book, so go out (warmly wrapped of course) and celebrate your achievement!

    In other news, all you people who destroy my hairdressing self-esteem, dia res a god o. Ahn ahn, trying something out for the first time and doing it this well? It’s not fair o. Anyway that’s why I keep my hair short and I’m planning to leave my future children’s hair in a simple afro all the time. I can’t come and kill myself abeg! Anyway when I had hair, I shampooed, conditioned then applied leave-in conditioner and gel shikena. Now I use just shampoo and sulfur 8.

    Have a lovely weekend!
    P.S. You have inspired me to go back to blogging, thank you 🙂

    • Thank you Clara. Im getting better tho, just not strong enough to study as i should cos the chesty coughs just rules my skull. Lol
      I did good right? Thanks jor, i just hope i do better in the finals for this module. Im sort of excited to see the questions really and get my integration moving forward. Will def buy myself a new pair of shoes after the test tomorrow.

      Kpele naaaaa. I have to save that 100e na. Simple afro ke. My sons will have simple afro but my girls? Oh lawd the plans i have for their skulls? No salons ever and by 10 they will be twisting their hair for bed themselves.

      My hair never agrees with gel so i dont use it. Never knew sulphur 8 was any good. I do miss short hair and get so tempted to cut off what i have but lets wait until i turn 70…..

      Ooooh me? Inspirational? Get out!!!! Thank you. You should get your blog working again. You write very well Clara.
      Enjoy your sunday and pls keep me posted on your integration.

    You plait hair also? I wish you stay close to me oo. …it’s very neat and beautiful…yes oo… nah business sense be dat o. Chai! nah 1980 in words long like that? How do you even start to pronounce it? You dey try oo….my gals took off their braids 3 weeks ago, and wash once a week only, there is less breakage after trimming…..will continue to observe.

    • Yes i do o. Havent been to a salon in a year. Thank you. I thought it was beautiful too. Hmmmm, now you mention business maybe i should send out an ad in the town papers….if anyone reads it….100€ aint beans o.

      Im a very lazy natural and before the water only wash(i wash my hair daily to every 2 days) i only shampooed once a month and that was ok for me cos i don’t really use a lot of products.

      I do need a trim tho. Or maybe just a bit of dusting. I haven’t noticed split ends so i think I’m good but i do need to do more observing too.
      Thank you, i always look fwd to your comments.

    • That word is even easy naaaa. Try pronouncing this one : Verpflichtungserklärung
      Lol

  • Uhhh…..I am sorta handy tho’….buh cuz I am the laziest person I know…I would rather call my hairdresser than bother bout my hair myself….lol…Nice post..

    • Yeah i know the feeling. Been trying to learn sewing but get so lazy even with the sewing machine the MIL gave me. I keep looking for ppl that can already sew to start a business with. But yeah, i have to learn it one day. Thank you for visiting

  • I think I’ll learn some serious german if I stick around for long….I know I’ll learn alot from you seeing I’m a natural. I hope I’m welcome….hehehehe
