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!

My Chouhou Gundam

I am so excited to write about the latest addition to my Gundam collection!  This time, I got it from the Gundam Caravan Booth last Best of Anime 2012 ! It was a fun-filled event full of cosplayers and various booths !  This time, we were given the Chouhou Gundam to setup. Uhm, I'm not sure if there is another name for this Gundam. However, the Katakana characters read as "Chouhou", so let me stick with that.  The box of Chouhou Gundam. Hey! This one is new! Other than the manual for setting up, there is also comics inside the box. Wow! It is great as I will get to know more about this Gundam! But time was of the essence, so I decided to move on with building and detailing and set aside reading for later. Comics inside the Chouhou Gundam box. So let us start with the steps in setting up. Here are the photos: We start off with the feet Then the head was next. Putting stickers on is hard, you know. Of course, we need the torso to connect the

Proud to be a Bella

May 21 2011 had been added to my list of memorable days thanks to the girls of Belle de Jour Power Planner. That special day was the BDJ Girls' Rendevous for the month of May. The theme was I Dream, therefore I can.  It was one of the biggest event to date. Almost 100 slots were available to be filled. The invitation to the event was given through various contests. I got my slot in this event through the Belle de Jour Facebook Fan Page. They posted a question at exactly 2:54 PM of May 5, 2011. They posted a question as their status which was: Question, Bellas:   How do you unwind/relax when you're stressed from school or work?   The first 25 BDJ Girls who will comment on THIS THREAD will get a slot at the BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream Therefore I Can! : ) When I saw that post, I immediately wrote "I watch my favorite teleserye." Woah! Believe it or not, I got the lucky 25th slot. Weee! The Rendevous was held in Ace Water Spa in Ortigas. I thought that swimming wi

My Playlist

My taste for music spans a lot of genre! I like Pop, Rock, Alternative, K-pop, J-pop, and RnB. What makes me like the song is the lyrics foremost, and rhythm would be next. I am not really a music junkie. I can't even sing! But I turn to music to make me relax whenever I'm stressed out. It also makes me forget time. As of the moment, my playlist involves a lot of K-Pop songs, thanks to Rain for that matter. There are also Filipino, English and Japanese songs. When I play music, I really pay attention to it. I listen to the rhythm, the tempo, the artist's voice, and the overall emotions of the song. That was how my music critique self was born! It's been a long time since I posted an album review. My playlist for the moment is as shown below. I usually put it on shuffle so this is not ranked according to how I like the music. Credits of the YouTube videos that I embedded goes to their respective owners.  1. My Way by Rain - This is the only song which made me cry
