It seemed that during my April vacation last year, there was so much time watching people get scribbled, having their hairstyle done or get a massage. It may sound unusual but I don't dig massages for myself so I went to have my hair braided. I initially thought it would cost thousands of pesos because of my poor interpretation of currency in my dialect. Everyone corrected me and told me it was only 300 pesos for a full braid. My other friends had half of their heads done too. But I've always wanted to have dreadlocks so maybe a cornrow might do.
I felt like a cool chick with the rows on my head. It was there for a few days and felt like my scalp was a few inches off my head when I decided to untangle it. The shower with lathering shampoo felt glorious.
