Diary of an Honest Naturalista: Week 33

Last Saturday, I was feeling lazy. I had the whole house to myself, and decided to pamper my hair, so I loosed my twists. I thought of how to give my hair the TLC treatment it really needed, and finally settled on one. I went to my road side fruit seller, and bought two avocados and one coconut. On my way home, Dimeji called me to look behind me. Behold, my boyfriend was driving right behind me, on a surprise visit. I thought to myself, “Gosh, if I had known he was going to come today, I won’t have picked it to pamper my hair. Well, it is too late, we will pamper it together.”

When we entered the house, it took me like 30 minutes to make the coconut milk. I mashed one avocado, added honey, olive oil, mayonnaise, and coconut milk I just extracted. I looked at the goodness I had just prepared for my hair. I dipped my finger into the mix, and it tasted divine. All these while, Dimeji was in the kitchen, watching the whole process. Feeling romantic, I dipped my finger again into the mix, and put my finger in Dimeji’s mouth. He tasted it and smiled.

I went to my room to get my towel, so I and Dimeji could go to the bathroom, where I would make use of the mirror, and he could just be gisting in my ears. Lo and behold, I got back to the kitchen, and I could not believe my eyes. My Deep Conditioning mix had almost completely disappeared. My boyfriend had eaten my deep conditioning treatment.

“Dimeji, what happened? Where is the mixture?”

“I’m sorry, Anna, I just couldn’t resist.” He flashed a mischievous grin. “I just thought to take one more dip, and before I knew it, the devil struck, and the whole thing disappeared.”



I was furious. I was mad. “Do you know what you just did? You just ate my Deep conditioning treatment. FOR! MY! HAIR! You put what was meant for MY HAIR in your stomach. It is for MY HAIR, not for your belly. Not even for my belly.” I just ranted.

“Take it easy, Anna.” He could see I was pissed.

“If I can exercise self-control, and not eat the treatment made for MY HAIR, then you can exercise self-control too.” I continued.

“I really don’t even see what the big deal is. After all, you have one more avocado left, you can make another one.”

“So that you can gobble it up again, abi?” I retorted.

He flashed that familiar mischievous grin, which is sometimes cute, but in times like this, really annoying.

I walked away, knowing exactly what to do. I repeated the whole process of making the Deep Conditioning mix again, while he was still in the kitchen, most probably planning how to steal my treatment once more. Once I was done, I lifted the bowl, walked to the fridge, and poured the Aloe Vera plant I blended with water into it, and mixed. If he dares taste it, he will know why Bitter Leaf and Aloe Vera are not mates.

Once I was done, I stretched the bowl out to him.

“Are you sure you don’t want to have a go at it?”

He gave me a suspicious looked and said, “what did you put inside? Poison?”

“Well, you just taste and see.” I replied.
