Weekly Photo Challenge: Never Have Another Bad Hair Day Again

Say Goodbye to Bad Hair Days!


‘Doing my hair’ can consume about 40 minutes out of a day before I’ve had a second cup of coffee.

Doing my hair while traveling to remote African villages is almost impossible.
I finally bought a blow dryer designed for 220 electrical after my other one blew up, burned out, or coincidentally reached its expiration date.

We’re near the southern part of the Great Sahara Desert.

It’s the dry season.
There’s no false advertising in that label.
Is there a hair conditioner equipped for this climate? Not in my bag!

So I’ve gone native.

I bought local cloth and learned, after about 6 minutes, how to tie it securely and comfortably.
I wonder how much more productive American women would be if we collected all those 10-40 minutes of hair prep every day for a year and funneled it into something that actually mattered, like personal relationships, walking the dog, prayer, or meal prep.

There are countless inefficiencies in Africa, but the ubiquitous headscarf isn’t one of them.
I rank it right up there with the invention of the microwave and carpools.


It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout.

    I love this post and I’m all for adding more time to walk the dog and pray instead of dealing with bad hair days.

      Hello D.L.,
      Life has so much more to offer I want time to enjoy all of it! I hope many people read your book and cultivate kindness toward those who are different. We have a grandson with Prater Willi Syndrome. It’s been a life long challenge that keeps evolving as he matures.

  2. I love it too! Kelly, we need a “how to” video! How about it??? Waiting with hope that you will!

    • Kelly Grace says:

      I’ll do one as soon as I get back to the states. You inspired me to take some photos here of the various ways they do it. Thanks

  3. Rollie Swingle says:

    Ditto on the “love it”. I am sharing your messages with our Thursday Morning Fellowship Group. Very inspirational for all of us.

    • Kelly Grace says:

      Thanks, you’re wives won’t know what to do with all the time and $$$ they save on their hair.

  4. Jeanine C. says:

    You wear it well 🙂

      Hi Birgitta,
      I’m so curious about this video, but I don’t have enough Internet strength to open and play it. I’ll save it until I return to the states.
      Thanks for sharing it—whatever it is:)

      • It’s an instructive video showing how to make different styles with the head scarf. Hope you can see it soon 🙂

    • Kelly Grace says:

      Birgitta this is fabulous! Thanks so much. I’m having so much fun with the scarves. This has given me lots of new ideas.

      • Glad you liked it 🙂 Have a great day and don’t forget the scarf 😉

  5. The scarf looks great on you! I like hats as well as you can see from my gravatar and selfie, but in everyday life, I don’t spend much time with my hair at all. As you say, too much else to do. I might, however, spend too much time on the computer. 🙂 Balance and moderation. Blessings on your ministry.


    • Kelly says:

      Well Janet,
      You have the facial structure to ROCK a hat. So far the only hats I can wear are a big brimmed straw hat or my Nike Golf cap (a smaller brimmed baseball cap). I wish I could wear a cowboy hat!
      You’re right—computers are magic—-they make time disappear.

  6. Beautiful, but I hate having things on my head. I don’t even wear a hat in winter and it’s realllllllly cold. It looks wonderful and I’m sure a lot of people will enjoy wearing them. So many different ways to tie them. Great:)

    • Kelly Grace says:

      I’m usually not a fan of hats, but the scarf was kind of a ‘when in Rome’ thing. Hey I love your Gravatar. Are you an artist? How do I get one?

  7. This way, you will be able to use those coupons for online and offline shopping.
    , for example, is made with the highest quality premium cabretta
    leather. Soon enough, you’ll find that major bargain and get that awesome feeling of
    accomplishment again.
