When I was small, to grow my hair my mom & dad together use to make coconut oil at home specially for my hair. And my grandma used to send selected coconut for making oil at home through whoever comes from my native. It was my whole family who took much efforts to grow my hair.
That special coconut oil prepared at home has pure coconut oil aroma & thickness, that helped my hair grow very thick, black, long & shining.
My Mom use to massage my hair every saturday with warm home made coconut oil for 15 mins then she'll apply lemon + egg white mixture and let me be for 20 mins, then she'll wash my hair with sikhakai that's the secret of my long, thick, shinning hair.
My classmates at school use to pull my hair just to measure my hair length & thickness. With much pride, I let them compare mine with them....:-)
I can't forget this one incident that happened during my engineering days. I did my engineering staying in hostel. My seniors once ragged me & cut my hair to finger length saying " how can u have such a thick, shinning hair". I & all my roomates were in shock. Since it was a weekend, my parents visited me exactly by that time & caught my seniors. And all my seniors who cut my hair begged my parents not to complain to the principal and felt on my parent's feet. Then my parents left them with warnings. My parents gave that importance & care to my hair.
I cant believe that i even had a group of fans in my hostel, college and even in my work place. Till my marriage my mom washed, maintained and gave me a beautiful hair.
But after my marriage, everything changed........including my hair thickness, glow & length. But then i found dove and I should say that Dove has taken my mom's place and taking care of my hair till now.
Now i'm a mother of a 5 yr old girl. Above all fans, I have one very special, cute fan for my long hair.....and that's my daughter. She loves my hair sooooo much that she sits on my lap, take my braided hair & put it on her shoulder and say " mommy look my long hair...." ha ha....
She always asks me, "how u got this big, long hair......". I use to say " my mom gave me". Her next question will be " will u give me this long hair..." Being a working mom, making coconut oil at home, preparing sikhakai powder are not possible for me. So with dove I have just started growing her hair just like how my mom & dove grew mine.
She has a beautiful hair....here's the pics of my daughter's braid.
