Beauty: Hair Essentials

Yes, I was blessed with the good hair gene. But it still needs maintaining. Since the hair-cut debacle few years back, I do as much as I can to really make them as healthy as possible. How? By giving them the best care. I managed to develop some kind of routine, although sticking to same products isn’t really my strong suit when it comes to hair care. There are too many interesting products out there on the shelves, I can’t help it! This right here, is a list of everything I’ve been using last few months. Beware, I went deep. :)

Wash: every 2-4 days, depends on how well they last. The better you wash them, the longer they last.

  • TIGI Bed Head Elasticate Shampoo: This is my true holy grail.
  • L’Oréal Paris Hair Expertise EverRiche Taming Shampoo: For softer hair. It serves great for the second wash.
  • Lee Stafford Blinding Brunette Shampoo: Makes the brown shinier.
  • Lee Stafford Bleach Blonde Shampoo: Every now and then, my “ombre” needs some purple shampooing to prevent it from going orange.
  • Eucerin DermoCapillare Hypertolerant Shampoo: For when my scalp feels a bit sensitive.
  • LUSH Rehab Shampoo: Every few weeks, the build-up gets too big.


  • TIGI Bed Head Elasticate Conditioner: Really the only conditioner I use – it’s the best.
  • LUSH Jasmin & Henna Fluff-Eaze Hair Mask: This one is life saver for conditioning the scalp.
  • KIKO Restorative Hair Serum: Great for the ends.

Everything else: I feel like they hold longer, if I straighten or curl them. I know it’s weird, but leaving them air-dry makes them greasy faster.

  • S Factor Vivacious Hair Spray: It holds the hair and it smells nice.
  • Tangle Teezer: My hair tangles easily and this buddy does the best job at untangling them.
  • Hairdryer: Since it takes me literally forever to air dry the hair, I often use this one.
  • Flat iron: Okay, I’m guilty of straightening my hair a lot. Also great for curling them.
  • Curling Iron: In all the years I’ve had this, I can barely use it. But it does a good job when I want loose curls.

The Day of Changes

I’ve been unhappy with my body for a quite a while now. Nothing fit right, nothing felt like…
