Down My Memory Lane....10:22
"Oh look she has got beautiful hair too"
"What do we name our angel?"
I brought happiness with me when i was born.
my mom combed my small tresses and tied a small pony,
which resembled a coconut tree....
"oh baby you look so pretty" - my first pony tail,
I looked at her happy face and smiled, when i was two.
"mommy i want an ice cream"
"first let me braid your hair" mom was stern.
*-pomp-pomp-* the horn sounded.
"coming dad" i said licking my ice cream.
My mom pleated my hair when i was in 5th std
"how about a french braid?"my mom advised.
"of-course you'll win dear, it's easy" my mum smiled.
I was nervous about the hair-styling competition.
"mom! it's 8:30 and you haven't pleated my hair yet,
"Try doing it yourself baby, mom's busy today"
I started braiding my hair,
My trophy in the showcase encouraged me...
" 1 packet of shikakai and henna mehendi "
my mom addressed the shopkeeper.
"it smells awful mom pleaseeeee" i begged.
"ssshhh! look at your hair,they need care"
no one argued with my mom.
Grandma was making a mess out of my hair,
"Ouch!mom?!! what is this function all about?"
"it's your kaliyon ki choti function dear"
I frowned. Mom gave me a mirror,
*desi beautiful chic* my mind read.
"There's no need to leave your hair loose everyday,
you'll damage them severely" my mom frowned.
"Come let me braid them" she offered
I gave her the comb reluctantly.
"Oh mom you are so sweet" i gasped looking into the mirror
"Side braids are 'IN' in my college".
Three years later.......
" Oh i am so worried about your hair dear"
mom was near to tears..." ordinary shampoos and other
chemicals have spoilt your hair. Not to mention the
straighteners" "I miss my long hair mom.....
i wish there was a split-end rescue shampoo"
No worries,try this-'Dove split-end rescue shampoo+conditioner'"
At first i wasn't convinced,but when i tried it-
It was magic *4X lesser split ends!*
Now i have beautiful long hair:)
You try it and you'll know it too!!!!
