Hair care plan...

The triple dot after the title shows that i don't actually have much of an idea on the subject. huuu...

Darn it. First and foremost i cannot stress how important it is to trim your hair every 3 months approximately. Due to budget problem, i didn't trim mine the last 5 months i was in ireland, thinking, it'd probably be much cheaper to wait a bit and do it in Malaysia. But then in Malaysia, it's been such a hustle all the time, preparing for Penang, being in Penang, starting class full blown and following through with the learning and bla3. So now my hair is suffering intense damage and it pains me to just hold them :( Oh my precious lady crown (lol), how i have ignored you i am so very sorry.

I am currently waiting for my shampoos. They're shipped back together with my clothes and living stuffs from Dublin. Some of my friends have been receiving their boxes now so I might be receiving mine in a few weeks time. Can't wait. That's basically my accumulated life there in those 3 huge boxes. While waiting, i've been using tre'semme shampoo, not that it's not good, but i just prefer my other shampoo. The thing is with Tre'semme, i need to use the conditioner as well for maximum effect. I know, i know. With any shampoo you'll have to use conditioner to balance the pH so on and so forth. But it's just too much work. Why opt for that when you can find an easier way, no?

So what's this shampoo that's so special i had to ship back from Dublin?

Aussie volumizing shampoo. curlazs uolls. volumoize gitu rambut akak.
Not sure if this is sold in Malaysian drug store (where i usually get my personal care stuff), Watsons, to be exact. Best gilaaa kot Watsons semua benda ada. Anyways, didn't want to take the chance, so to be on the safe side, i bought a few which can last for maybe a bit more than a year. This is goodstuff man. I mean, shampoos are really tricky, you have to really experiment with them. What works for one person won't necessarily work for another. I wish i could use Sunsilk, Rejoice whatever, but my hair is really just a fussy thang. Anyways, i like my hair to have volume, especially after being flattened out all day long with the tudung. Thus, explains the choice. Obviously, the product has different ranges like for colour etc.

Before using the shampoo though, i used to use the 3 minute miracle conditioner. Right then, the shampoo hasn't been on the market yet.

I have to tell you, I'm definitely, absolutely satisfied with this. I tend to have dry frizzy hair, so using this, it did solve the problem. Well after i finished it i saw the shampoo range and i achieved pretty much the same effect without the conditioner so i dropped the conditioner. Didn't really feel like waiting 3 minutes staring at the wall every time i wash my hair. ;/ plus, don't everybody loves shortcuts? hee

Well it doesn't stop there of course!

I just find it more comfortable to use leave-in conditioner (okay so i still use a conditioner). Started using it mostly because i needed a product for heat protection because sometimes i need to hurry and dry my hair with the hair dryer. Eventually though, it became a habit to just put it on whenever i have my hair wet because it does charms to my hair. I use Charles Worthington hair healer.

Well to be honest, I don't see it much different from Sunsilk's leave in conditioner but since i'm comfortable with this product, so i'll just stick to it. For now. Usually the effect is maximum if i put this on, dry my hair, and put my tudung on. When i come back home, it'll be super silky smooth. Cewah. macam iklan plak.

hmm.. so i think that's it for my hair regime. Maybe i should put on hair mask too every now and then but it's just so messy that the thought of it is.. just... bleargh.

Well it goes without saying that you have to practice good habits as well. Try not to sleep on your hair. Maybe make a loose braid to put them in place and definitely DON'T use getah tempe! Use clothe type hair scrunches. Gotta have good sleeping habit too. hehe. This is where i suck. So when you wake up and not snooze off, you do not move your head around a lot on the pillow right? That is just the perfect place for your hairs to undergo direct friction and damage. So when your alarm goes off, do NOT snooze, get up and enjoy your smooth and silky hair! cewah.

Haaa.. macam ni la youalls kena bangun pagi hari2. bergaya gitu. amek feeling sikit. tengok lama2...... hafal ekspresi muka, dan amal okeh! ;) barula curlassz you alls nak mengahdapi hari2 yang mendatang

makin lama makin geli pulak aku ni. Nak lawan kak senduk ke. oh memang tak dapat la kan. ha ha.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention. For God's sake people, a wide toothed comb only costs about what, rm3 or 4? Get them! Comb your wet hair with that and not those hair brushes. Have some mercy on your hair. They are just so very delicate when they're wet.
