Apparently when God made me, He anointed me with a little extra oil because it shows up in my hair…every day. And not just a little oil. You could run a small slip and slide down my scalp by the end of the day. And I know it’s not the healthiest option for my hair, but I have to wash and blow dry it EVERY morning.
I figure I may as well make good use of the time. So I’ve devised a few ways of making the morning blow-dry a bit more interesting.
1. I’ve taken up oil pulling. When I first heard of oil pulling I thought they had to be talking about a new method of refinishing furniture. Bit that’s not it at all. I you Google oil pulling there is an infinite amount of information, but supposedly small miracles will happen in my mouth and body when I swish coconut oil for 20 minutes. And what better time to do it than while held captive to the blow-dryer.
2. I dry my hair in sections with around brush. It takes a while, but it cuts down time with the flat iron, so it’s worth it. For each section I dry, I use that time to pray for a different person. Different people every day: friends, family, leaders, clients from work, basically whoever God puts on my heart. By the time I’m done I’ve prayed for at least 4 people.
3. I meditate on scripture. As I’m praying I keep in mind the verse of the day from my Bible app. I think and pray about what it might mean to them and what it means to me. I also think about how I might put His Word into action throughout my day.
So there you have it. Three things that make my blow-dry time productive and way more enjoyable! Try one, two, or all three of them next time you dry your hair.
Love, hugs, and happy hair drying to all!
