I was invited to have a haircut and coloring session at Komachi Hair Cult more than a month ago. Now, I am very sensitive about my hair and I can get all riled up at the slightest comment. So there I was, sitting in the salon for the first time and feeling rather unimpressed with what I saw. It also didn’t help that the hairstylist spoke Mandarin to me and then bluntly pointed out that I had very little hair. And while I was still feeling miffed about his comment, the shampoo boy who attended to me asked me if I’m suffering from hair loss. And that was it! My anger rose to the point I was prepared to pick up my bag and walk right out of the salon that very minute!
Is it safe to say most women have stretch marks regardless of whether they have been pregnant or not? I know I have them and I have never been pregnant, just that I’ve lost quite a bit of weight from my teenage years, resulting in the stretch marks on my thighs. I have to confess, they used to bother me when I was younger and I would apply anything that claims to lessen the marks. But now, I find myself not caring anymore to the point where I don’t even bother to do anything about them.
I thought I’ve always been one who loves instant gratification because I really prefer to buy my stuff and get them on the spot. However, it seems I’ve had a change of heart over the past year or so. I still prefer to buy from the stores but with more online stores that offer lower prices, it would seem that shopping for my beauty products online make better sense. So do I now prefer to buy my beauty products online? Well, yes and no.
I love beauty tools and gadgets but aside from my hair dryer, brow tweezer, and epilator that I use regularly, I’m really quite lazy to use anything more. While I may start out using a particular tool with enthusiasm but the interest usually fizzles out pretty quickly too. However, I’ve really surprised myself by using one tool daily for the past six months now! Seriously, I want to kowtow to myself for the feat!!! And what tool am I talking about?
A reader had left me a question on my Facebook page asking if it’s all right for her to drink a lot of water daily. At that time, I had told her that it should not be a problem but it’s more important to be drinking quality water. However, shortly afterwards, I found out that there is actually a dangerous medical condition called Hyponatremia, caused by drinking excessive water and resulting in one not having enough salt in the body fluids outside the cells. So I guess that’s why the recommendation is always for us to drink 8 glasses of water a day. But realistically, do we really count how much water we drink? Plus, how should these 8 glasses of water be spread out in the day?
