2015 Keratin Hair Treatment

First post of the year. What better way to start it than a life changing experience for me!

Last year, I was told by my hairstylist that if I’m so bothered by my unruly hair, I could try out their latest Keratin hair treatment which will promise me extra shiny and manageable hair. I’m usually very lazy when it comes to maintaining my hair, and I was really skeptical about it. I imagined that it’s either going to be a regular hair treatment which won’t last after one wash, or it’s going to be as lifeless as rebonded hair. And then later when it grows out it will look super stupid, like frizzzzzz-limp hair. I was assured repeatedly that it won’t end up like either, and they say first timers get a discount. Okay can, let’s book my next appointment /kaching.

Without further ado, here be pictures.

30 Day Lolita Challenge – Day 6

Gasp, I’m actually still doing this? Lol. Don’t expect much of it. I looked at the rest of the topics, and everything’s like…

Maybe I’m just really out of rori. haha XD;

I’m giving up on Day 5 for now, and moving on with Day 6.

Original Meme

Day 6 – 10 things you can’t live without in lolita.

I’m not sure how to interpret this topic, and actually, a lot of them, since most of my answers just sound like very generic Life questions. Rori things that I cannot live without? Or Things I cannot live without if I wear rori? Hahaha…

In no order…

Tea Party with Aoki Misako

It’s really been a long while since I wore full out rori.

And I’m still trying to write my Japan trip entries LOL. I’ve failed so badly at writing entries for my previous trips, so I’m hoping that this one I’m able to write them all.

On the 20th November (Tue), a tea party with Kawaii Ambassador, Aoki Misako, was held in conjunction with the opening of Plaza Singapura’s JRunway, a select shop of Japanese fashion brands. My friends and I immediately RSVP-ed for it because this is such a rare chance!

Photo with Misako and her very elaborate and cute signature!

The 30 day Lolita Challenge

I took it from my friends who are currently doing it too. Do take a look at theirs. It’s going to be so much nicer than mine LOL.

I wanted to do this partially to entertain myself, and possibly rediscover what rori means to me (in a good or bad way, we’ll just have to see.) Some of the answers I came up with while glancing at the meme were quite ridiculous and funny, so I wanted to share those answers with you guys as well. Long memes like this one are generally hard for me because of commitment issues, and I’m very horrible when it comes to finishing what I’ve started (most of the time I get very dissatisfied with my work), so I hope this is a er.. “small accomplishment in life” for me should I finish it LOL.

Before and After: Nails

People who know me long enough know my obsession with wanting to grow my nails to a decent length. Decent length being having visible white nails sticking out of the finger instead of the sad state where I chewed right into the pink bit of the nail. I finally got rid of the habit (sort of)

This took me 2 months to grow!

MY NAILS. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAY.

MY NAILS GREW. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAY.

Dream of 16 years, fulfilled. I raise my fist up in triumph.

Originally my plan was to also include pictures of how my hair looks like with and without styling. Unfortunately I seem to be having more success in taking bad shots than decent shots. It’s not the hair’s fault; it’s my unglam face with the weird expression. I’ll try my best to post up photos of it in the next entry.

Styling is surprisingly easy and tricky at the same time. The whole process takes about 5 minutes, with majority of the time spending on applying hair wax to my hair instead of the tweaking part even though that’s the hardest.

I’m trying to reduce the hair wax usage, I promise.

Haircut! (and one Wreck this Journal WIP)

I did it! <3 Surprisingly there were no problems faced, except my right side is a bit off compared to my left, but IT’S OKAY. I’m happy <3

I managed to dye my hair a much lighter colour than my previous brown colours. My hairstylist was pretty adamant about avoiding anything with yellow in it, and I was sort of avoiding reds (No need to have red hair even though it’s one of my favourite colours /shot), so we narrowed down to very unusual colours. Previously, I went for this “Neutral” category which had a “light blonde” or something in it, but look what happened to my hair: Still brown as ever, but lovely colour of course.

This time, I wanted to try something lighter, but without looking like an ahlian. Maybe I’m subconsciously aiming for blonde, or maybe I just want to test how light I can go without looking hideous.

I think mine was somewhere around the top 2 colours...

I was quite surprised he suggested the Blue/Violet category for me, since I’ve heard a lot of horror stories with blues for hair. And yes, crappy picture is crappy. I’ve been editing this photo many times to reflect the actual colours I remembered, but obviously I failed. Also, “Blonde”? What blonde.

My hair is still brown! But hey~ I like <3

Hair appointment in 14 hours…

Short hair and bob mook

Short hair and bob mook

Life changing experience! LOL.

I made an appointment for a haircut later. Very excited now! I’m definitely going to cut my hair short once and for all so that I would shut up and move on already. I know there is a high chance I might regret my decision, but I’d rather that instead of regretting not trying short hair at all.

I just need to tell myself that hair grows.

I also badly need a dye job, but if it’s not possible to dye it during the session for various reasons, I’m going to make a short trip to watsons and get some dye to DIY fufufu (unless someone manages to invite me out for a hair dye/cut/perm session in the near future)

As for the intended hairstyle, let’s just say I have a few in mind, but I’m not sure how possible it is for my current hair. Gotta discuss it with the hairstylist I guess.

I might do something extreme in the end. Then again, cutting short hair is already an extreme move for me.
