The Start of My Hair Care Journey

"Wow, girl! Your hair is similar to that of a horse.", a friend told me just a few days ago. I was hurt, yes. But then again, it wasn't the first time that my hair was the center of attention. My hair is curly, dry, unruly, and frizzy. This problem is in my genes, so there is nothing I can do about it. Fact is, it is the source of my insecurity. 

But insecurity is something that can be solved. Take for example my skin, I have a lot of blemishes before. Pimples, dark spots, and oiliness plague my face. But now, thanks to cosmetics, I was able to fix it. Skin care technology is amazing nowadays. You can practically find the solution to your targeted needs, may it be in clarity, anti-ageing, or whitening. 

Maybe it's time for me to explore on hair care technology, too. However there is one thing I have noticed, I think we have a lot of options to care for straight hair but not much for curly hair. Salons mostly boast of styling, straightening, and coloring. When I go in, they would look at my hair, frown instantly, and think deep on what to suggest they should do. Mostly, it ends up with hair rebond. 

I also tried hair rebonding. I regularly go once a year for four consecutive years. It is heavy on the wallet but the results are good! I didn't even have to worry about the frizz and my hair falls on place. However, it made my hair too flat and  my face look too round for comfort. 

Then the time came when I grew tired of having flat straight hair. The turning point was last 2011, when I attended my first BDJ event. One of the speakers, Ms. Bianca Valerio said, "Accept your hair as it is." 

After that, I let my hair grow. Those wavy baby hairs started to come out and now, my original dry frizzy hair covers almost half of my head. The other half is the straightened rebonded part. It doesn't look good, honestly. But there is just no other way. LOL!

My hair now. :)
Taking inspiration from Ms. Valerio and my successful skin care regimen, I will now embark on a journey to find the perfect product for my dry, unruly, damaged, and (insert negative word here) hair! This one is even more challenging because of the few options for curly hair care. But no worries! With these limitations, it is always an opportunity for someone out there to develop solutions. 

So, bring it on, samples!

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain

Rain and HyunA

After four months, the Rain Effect still leaves a mark in me. It is a great album and if I have all the time in the world, I would feature each track in a full write up. For this sixth volume, Rain had a song which featured the K-Pop artist HyunA. It is entitled "Where are you going, Oppa?" and it has a nice Arabian-like beat infused with bass and hip hop, it hints of sexiness too.  For today, I will write about this song that was successful in bringing out a reaction in me. Let’s listen… Fan video by Miyu MaGirlYura So now you understand why it brought a reaction in me? Hehehe ~ It means that the artist is successful in bringing out the emotion through a song. One thing is for sure, Rain chose the perfect girl to sing with him. Both are top caliber artists in their own field. And because of him, I now like HyunA and I researched about her. Kum Hyuna (HyunA) I already know the entertainer named HyunA. I can't remember how, though. I just know her as the n
