memories of long hair

Advika and Ashreya are two beautiful sister. They were totally different from each other. May be you can say, the difference is because of the age difference between them too. 10 years made it as gen-next for each of them. Advika became almost a parent to Ashreya.

Advika, was really short tempered. She would go her shave her hair, when ever her dad scolded her. People say, that is the reason, she has beautiful hair today. Thank god her head shaving thing didn’t continue after certain age. She grew her hair long. People loved looking her from behind. The way her hair was braided. The way her hair swayed when she walked was a sight to see. Advika’s mom became cautious. She would not let her braid her in single plait or let her leave her hair loose. All the boys in neighborhood would wait for Sunday to arrive, when they can see Advika let her hair loose, with a small knot at the end. They would follow her till temple to see her walk, and long plait sway with her,

Ashreya on the other end, had a rough texture hair. she never let anyone touch her hair. only Adivka dared to go near Ashreya. Advika used to oil Ashreya’s hair. Advika was found of make up and hairstyles. She would watch the beauty programs on Tv and would try them on Advika. That’s she learnt all French plait, Spanish knot, bun, etc etc.

Both grew up being noted for their hair, for the length, varieties of braids they would were. During dance programs, they never used false hair. for obvious reasons Advika was radha in dance plays, where Krishna would pull her hair.

Things changed after Advika joined college. She studied in Chennai during the water crisis time. She was just given a bucket of water to bath. She couldn’t maintain her hair any longer. She decided to cut her hair short. But instead of help, that did more damage to her hair. hairfall started, people no more talked about her hair.

The intelligent younger one , who is still in school suggested  Dove Split Ends Rescue System to Advika. Things started changing a lot.  Things improved so much with the rescue system . a follower of her hair during the school days proposed her. His love letter was a collage of all the photos taken of Advika during the school time. On their wedding day, he confessed that he fell for her for the beautiful hair she has.

Advika thanked Ashreya for the great advice she gave . she started growing her hair once again, though the hair no more thick has t used to be, but the life in the hair is same as those old days.

This post is part of the Beautiful Ends to Your Beautiful Braids! Contest on, in collaboration with Dove Split Ends Rescue System.

p.s: sisters are none other than me and me my sis. unfortunately unable to trace those old photographs.

I know when we see the person, first thing we would look is…. Has she got that straight hair?? Hurry she has got, so now we can experiment with the product.

Day 1:

Knock at the door..

Hubby opens the door. Courier person gives a smiles and asks for me.

Hubby: Ashreyamom, parcel for you..

Me: coming.

Hubby: what did u order this time??

Me: I have not ordered anything. Still let me see.

I take the parcel from the courier person. Hubby looks at me more eagerly, wanting to know what it is. I open the box and find shampoo and conditioner bottle.

Hubby: cha, shampoo.. not phone or kindle??

Me: (with a smile on face.) yes, you can get them too, if you will tell me how the product is??

Hubby: don’t joke

Me: I am serious.

Hubby: look, I am already getting bald form front. I don’t want to do any experiment.

Me: hmmm, so u don’t want smart phone??

Hubby thinks for a while and leaves the room.

Day 2:

I find the shampoo bottle opened in bathroom.

Me: Ashreyadad.. why did you use my shampoo?

Hubby: look, I didn’t use it, I tried to smell it

Review of the product:

Hurry, it’s working.  Ok, let me confess that I have a perfect straight hair. But end frizz, that spoils the look of my hair and doesn’t allow me to leave my hair loose. Because I put band after plaiting my hair, the curving effect because of the plait is seen on my hair even if I let it loose.

The smell after the hair is washed is good, not very strong compared to other shampoos I have used. Shampooing everyday didn’t spoil my hair or its texture, but made it smooth and look perfectly straight. I just let it air dry, which did magic to my hair. i.e no damage.

I walked out confidently with a letting my hair loose, and could easily tie up a high pony and maintain that stylish attire throughout the day.

My verdict: 4.5/5.

Hubby did use the shampoo. Isn’t it telling how good the shampoo is??

Oh I didn’t tell you what happened next three days and what was the game??

Hubby was blind folded. He would feel my hair before going to bath. He would rate it separately for the smell, texture and also check the hair fall from the comb I use. Then after three days of continuous use of shampoo, he completely forget about the game. Didn’t I tell you men would be men.

I came back from work, with a high pony. He never saw me such a hairstyle till now. That made the trick. He came to hold me, I managed to slip from his hand grip. He got hold of the clip I wore and removed it. My hair fell straight down, bringing in the romantic moment. (Should all the romance happen only on TV, when heroine is showed with hair flying back with fan placed in front of her etc). he felt my hair and said its felt so smooth and the new look really suits me. The shampoo has brought life to my dry wavy hair.

The shampoo not only restored the moisture in the hair and texture, it also restored the romance in relation.
