drip drip drip
my son came over to henna my hair today (good son). all good. mixed it up last night with vinegar so you can imagine how it smelt. strong. we had bacon and eggs for brekky and his partner and step daughter came over too. i took my car in to get fixed as lately it's been refusing to start after i drive somewhere and park, usually when it's hot weather. last night i went to the garage up the road to fill up and it happened again. luckily (or not but that's another story) my garage fix it man is practically next door so i walked up and made an appointment for today. sooooo, i took the car up before my son came over this morning. later i rang and the car was ready so went to pick it up and thought to myself i probably should go to the shops. so i did. i had a shower hat on top of the henna and put a summer hat on top of that. well, it was a hot day today and very hot in the car. you guessed it, i started to glow (horses sweat :)) and felt a worrying drip drip drip. sure enough i had started to leak. luckily i had some tissues with me and proceeded to mop up the brown lines going down my face and neck. lots and lots of it. i didn't stay long at the shops as it was just too awful for words. funnily enough, no-one gave me a second look. when i got home i rinsed it off over the bath and then jumped in the shower to finish the process. g_d it's messy and this lot of henna was more sandy that the previous one, it was a different colour too and had more leafy stuff in it. what i have to do to stay this beautiful, it's hard work. btw, the henna is supposed to be excellent for dandruff and kills head lice. not that i had any of either you understand. anyway, it's a great colour and i'm very happy with it.
