I have always liked being plain and simple. I only wear make-up on special occasions. I don’t do extra work with my hair on a regular basis. I like it that way. Low maintenance so to speak, lol!

However, a week before my baby’s church baptism, I thought of getting a hair cut and having my hair colored. I always go to this no-frills hair salon in town because the hairdresser is good. Most salons that I’ve gone to were not really used to handling Asian thick, black hair so I always end up spending more but feeling unhappy and dissatisfied after every haircut session. So I just keep on coming back to this hairdresser in town and always walk out of the place feeling like it’s a different me each time, lol! If you know what I mean, hehe!

But anyway, so after this latest haircut (which I really love) I thought of indulging myself into a few vanity items that would somehow maintain the “fresh out of the salon” look!

Before, I usually just let my hair air-dry. I think it’s simpler that way. I was also dead-set against using hair straighteners for I have heard too much heat can damage hair. But then, I have naturally wavy hair so it can be challenging at times to style it. So I thought I must give hair styling tools a try. I researched on what great products to use to help minimize hair damage despite using these tools. I hate to admit it but it sure does make a lot of difference.
