Happy Pongal & Happy Makar Sankranti!!!
I am so excited today!!! For soooo many things!!!
- I made pongal (sweet & salty) in open pots and it came out sooooooo well!! Till today, I never really hit the right consistency (when making in open pots!!) But todayyyyyyy both pongals came out awesomeeeee!!! Yayyy!!!
- I tried the “no-styling product” routine on a festive day ( when i never really take chances and lather up all the gel that I have!!) andddd I kind of liked my hair.
- I tied a saree!! Have decided to tie more saris this year…and this was the very first!!
- I did a quick (under 5 minutes) hair style…annnnd added flowers to it!! You would have already seen that in above pic!!
- Went to temple too!!
So overall so many ‘yaaaayyy’s!! 🙂
Here is my Saree, Hair (without styling product), & the overall look on pongal!!! 🙂 Routine and hair routine and product at end of this post.
This is my fully dry hair without any styling product – No gel..No styling Cream!!
This Saree had been resting in my cupboard for almost 4 years now!! I got it just for the roses!! 🙂 Plus I am loving those two ringlets on both the shoulders!!
Me *Thinking*: May be I should fluff?? May be I should get a hair cut? Oh! how my Day 2 hair will look??? 😉
But I still like my hair without any styling product!! 🙂
This time, this is what I did:
Deep Conditioner: Applied Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque at night on dry hair. (I am not sure how I feel about the applied DC on dry hair!!) Slept with the DC on.
Shampoo: I skipped the shampoo
Conditioner: used very veryyyy little of SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Conditioner. Co-washed & rinsed. Then detangled with it and did not wash it off completely. Let some in. I feel I could have washed it all off. It is a bit heavy compared to the TBS Rainforst Conditioner that I have been using.
Styling product: none
I plopped for 5 mins (literally)
Let my hair free and Air Dried.
While my hair dried, I cooked the Pongals, then did pooja and while my hair was damp, I slept with hair laid on satin cloth draped over my pillow. Woke up, got ready and clicked pics….then did the hairstyle and clicked few pics just before leaving!! 🙂
So, how are you enjoying the festivals and the long weekends?? 🙂
Hey btw, will you ever want to go styling product free?? Lemme know!!!
