Since the end of Ramadan and Eid, the weather changed and became too hot. Suffocatingly hot; and in short, this is not my favorite weather. I shower almost 2-3 times a day in cold water to keep myself from going crazy. I feel sweaty and bothered just by reading or sleeping. That’s one of the worst things about Amman, Amman is not set for either cold or hot weather. When it’s too cold we freeze, when it’s hot like this we melt. In short this weather needs an AC on 24/7! Not to mention we are among the poorest countries in water! Add guilt to the mix and you create a foul mix!
But I thank God that I enjoy showering so much, and that I don’t style my hair daily like some girls. I like my wavy hair so much, but people prefer it sprayed, dried and perfectly done, sometimes I feel like I need it but most of the time, I just leave it be. Now that it’s hot and I don’t worry about ruining it, it feels good in just a simple ponytail or a bun.
My shower companion must be Herbal Essences, it makes me feel floral, clean and happy, and in my imagination I feel like Lara or Nicole, moving my hair around shouting: “YES YES YES!” After I go out I give myself 30 minutes to an hour and then the refreshing illusion ends and I’m engulfed in the heat wave again.
I just hope to visit the swimming pool a couple of times this month and then let the heat wave break God. I miss the cold weather.
