Rain respects NO ONE!

Rain and Hair, is like, Oil and Water... They DO NOT mix. If it starts to rain when I'm on the go, I normally have no problem, I'm either in the car or I have my loyal umbrella. I've recently moved to Amsterdam *woop*... traded my car for a city bike and as a result rain is a big problem *sighs*! Personally, I'm not big on cycling, as a driver I found cyclist a nuisance, as a cyclist, guess what?...... I find cyclist a nuisance.

You know what's worse than riding a bike? Riding a bike in torrential rain!!!! Last night I got caught in the torrential downpour, 30mins from my flat with no umbrella... no hood... no plastic bag.... just me, the clothes on my back and my bike! I have a picture and a cold to prove it loool. If you're like me you'll know when it rains, personal appearance becomes i-rre-le-vant! I took my coat off, put it on my head and cycled to the nearest bridge until the rain calmed down a little.

Luckily my hair didn't get wet, as for my clothes? The picture says it all. The picture was taken whilst I was under the bridge by a friend. At this point I still had a 20min cycle left. I'm buying a raincoat and I will never leave my house without it again!

Back to Plaits

I've started back at university now and I noticed I was slacking a little bit in the hair department. I wasn't taking the extra time to style my hair and as a result I was leaving the house with hair that wasn't meeting my normal standards. I had two options, 'wake up a little bit earlier and style' or 'plait my hair'. The former option just wasn't going to happen so plaits it was. Despite the slight irritation from scalp exposure I'm enjoying my new do.

I plaited my hair first, when I was 3 months post and, I have to say as a protective style it is ACE. I previously kept them in for just under 2 weeks, spritzing twice a day with homemade braid spray and when i took them out my hair was well moisturised.

I'm going to attempt to wear plaits through winter in the hope of retaining moisture and length and at the expense of losing heat from my head. Anyone who has had plaits before knows, when the wind blows you feel it!
