I quickly showered, ate some raw cereal with almond milk, packed up my drinks for the day and headed out the door to volunteer at the SAM Competition.
After I was finished at the competition, I ran a few errands. Then I headed to the juice bar for a shot of wheatgrass, ginger and 2 shots of watermelon.
I then headed to my office downtown for a make-up chamber music coaching and a few hours of teaching during which I sipped my 16 ounce green juice.
When I got home I was quite hungry, so I ate some of the dip I had prepared the day before smeared on some romaine lettuce leaves. Then I made a fresh batch of almond milk.
Since I had the evening off, I decided to try dying my hair again (to cover the gray) with the rest of my CACA BRUN MAMA henna. This time I was better prepared, having received some tips from friends and watching some helpful videos online. If you decide to use this LUSH product, I definitely suggest using a grater to grate the block. Earlier in the day I had picked up a cape and a terry cloth hair turben, which definitely made the process much easier. I also added fresh squeezed lemon juice to my henna batter before applying - I let the dye set on my hair for 6 hours. And before applying the henna, I rubbed coconut cream around my hairline - it worked like a charm!
After I finished applying the henna to my hair, I sipped the kamut water while Andrew and I watched the latest episode of Downton Abbey.
A bit later, Andrew and I split a Hail Merry chocolate mint and lemon tart. Then I drank the oxykare water.
In terms of symptoms, I still had a soreness in my throat for which I took another dropper full of the oil of oregano. I also felt dehydrated and quite chilly at times. And today I finally had a BM.
Just before bed, I washed the dye out of my hair and downed the systemic enzymes. Hair report coming tomorrow...
