Then once I have removed the eggs I have to put cream on again so that I can comb it and style it. Here you can see how long her hair is already. I did flat twists on the front / top and then small twists on the back. This was the first time I have worked with the hair with it completely combed out and it was such a pleasure. I have often watched videos of ladies doing African hair and I would always wonder how they got it so soft. I thank the Lord that I struggled so much at the end of last year because it allowed me to get extra help and get a couple of much needed tips.
Ruth is really happy with the style and was so patient through all the work. I did not add up the hours this time but we watched The Sound of Music 3 times (twice in full and once with the songs only), Cinderella 2, Mary Poppins, an episode of Master chef and a Winnie the Pooh movie.
Now I just pray we have killed all the lice and eggs and that we don't have to repeat that process any time soon.
