Heavenly Hair Salon....

Have you ever read this verse?

Luke 21:18
"And yet not a hair on your head will be lost."
International Standard Version (©2008)

I just had an experience where this verse can means literary.

Do you know that there is nothing too small about your life that you can not share with your Creator ?

Since I was small, my mom always told me that I should involve God in every part of my life, no matter how small.

Let me start from the beginning.

My father's hair is curly, but my mom's hair is straight. Since God knows that my parents will only have one child, He wants me to have both of their hair types in exact proportion. Hence, my top hair is curly, yet in a horizontal straight line exactly at below my ears level, my hair is straight.

For not so good hair dresser, they usually do not know what to do with my hair. As a result, I always had a bad hairstyle! When I said bad, it's really bad alright....

Most of the hairdresser didn't want to deal with my complicated hair, so they always suggested me to straighten my hair. And the result of continuous straightening my hair was disaster. I probably lost 30% of my original hair volume. Plus 10% more from childbearing.

So when I finally met the RIGHT hairdresser, Mrs. Hitomi, at Suki Hair's Salon in Vancouver. For the first time I can truly see the full potential of my hair. She can cut my hair in such a way that my hair can be what they suppose to be despite the curly and straight combination.

Her motto was something like this, " You will never have a bad hair day if you follow the natural grow of your hair".

Having a haircut done by her was like taking a science class. Because I have 2 different types of hair, she use 2 different types of conditioners. One for normal, the other for dry because curly hair is usually drier than straight hair.

I am not trying to be disgusting here but her haircut really makes me feel pretty.... ( haha )

The biggest lost I felt when I have to leave Canada is leaving my hair dresser behind .....hics.....

Sayonara Hitomi....

When I move back to Surabaya, I was not prepare with what the humidity can do to my hair. My hair explode ! To cut it short, I keep making mistake after mistake because I really do not know what to do with my hair. I was never happy when I had to go to a hair salon because I always expecting a disaster. And it always happen....

I always wants to have somebody else hair. Soft wavy type is always my dream.

Since my returned back to Surabaya, I go back to my old habit of straightening my hair. When in doubts, go straight. That's what I thought.

I have tried relaxing, smoothing, and ion, I have pretty much tried all the method of hair straightening. I did it every 4 months and I am just so tired of it.

So after exhausting every ideas on what to do with my hair I finally gave up. I gave up listening to so many hair dressers. I gave up on trying to have a great hair in a very humid country by my own ideas.

So I go back to square one.

I kneel down and pray to Him who made my hair in heaven.... here is my prayer....

" Father in heaven who created me. I know how much You love me. I know you don't make junk. I am your masterpiece. There is nothing wrong with your design. Please help me to have the kind of hair style that I was meant to have. Don't let me make a mess with my hair again somehow. Please makes me look good....pretty pleaseeee..........in Jesus name, Amen"

I went straight to the salon and ask them to perm my hair curly again so that when my root grow, my new hair will blend in with the permed/curly hair.

I know alright, that the hair dresser actually wants to make my hair wavy because she has heard my whinny wishes too many times. But somehow during the process of making my hair wavy something must have happened.

When I saw myself in the mirror, I could not stop laughing....

I look exactly like 3 years ago !!!

Her perm actually did not go as she intended. Instead of wavy, my hair goes back to curly. And some part of my hair actually did not get enough chemical so they kind of straight just like before. So some part of my hair is curly, and the rest is straight. How amazing is that???

But after assessing my hair, she said I look better with this curly style. In a weird way, even I have to agree.

Now I can not wait to let my original hair grow long enough and replace this imitation curly hair. For now, I just have to nourish my hair back to their original healthy condition. Before the dark ages when I keep torturing them with all those chemicals.

Here is my newest photo, taken today, in my daughter's school. She had her first birthday party in the school. She will turned 3 in a few days.

From her school, I went to have a moisturizing hair treatment on my cousin's salon. When she saw my hair, she said " Hey... since when your hair goes back to curly again? Your hair look better this way ! "..... haha..... so it was not just me who think my new hair style is like the old one....

When my husband saw me for the first time with my new hair style. I told him like this, " Honey, look! I look the same like 3 years ago! ".... he answered, " Finally....".

My son comment was, " Mom, I like it that your hair is curly again. Keep your hair at this length. Before was a bit too long "

I know that I will still admire people who have a soft wavy hair, but trust me, there are people who also wish to have naturally curly hair like mine. One of them is my church friend. She said I am so lucky that I don't need to perm my hair anymore while she still have to get her hair permed regularly. She said perming her hair is such a trouble, tiring, and costly too.

So people, what do I learn from this lesson?

God is never wrong. He is always right.
