Hair Shizz

I have never, ever used a curling iron before. Ever. I don't know what that makes me.  .   . maybe a conservative? A l-o-s-e-r? I've been too comfortable with my straight (ahem, it's not purrfect but I'm happy with it) hair that I usually just comb a few strokes and rush for whatever destination I am up for next. And the only time I sported curls was during my high school graduation --- when which rollers were enough. I know ok that was ages ago. =))

To cut the long story short, mother gave in to the Buy1BuySecondat1peso deals of Watsons. HAHA. Seeing the 3in1 Hair Set under that deal was too irresistible for her that even I couldn't stop what I think was an impulse buy. Soooo, *kaching!* there goes 1000 pesos.
999pesos for 1 box, 1peso for the second.

But I am not complaining. In fact, as soon as we got home, sister and I played with it like a new toy. Hahaha! Let's see what we have here! =))
I have no idea how to exactly use the brush-like stick (stick?!) so sister and I used the plain one for the body of our hair, and the one with the treads for curling the ends.

Anywhoo, the results:
Not bad, I guess? I kept on running my hand through the curls because I wanted the out-of-bed-my-hair-is-a-mess! look. Hahaha! I have thick hair so I don't think I'll be using this often. Having waves gives me even more volume, which I already have plenty of. Or maybe I'm just doing it wrong. Hohoho.

Doing this however made me realize that I have overly long bangs (look at those pictures!), so used again my ever favorite hair thinning/trimmer scissors that I bought about a year ago.
Reaaaally convenient, plus it let's me experiment with the length of my bangs. This is a good investment that every girl should have, if you're looking for some unsolicited advise.
A LOT of hair chopped off. HAHA! My curls were already gone by this time since didn't apply any staying cream (whazdatcalled?).

Will end this post with a cute shirt that was a freebie at Watsons. I think it's for buying some toner and facial wash? I guess so!
Haha this made me smile. =P

For the pros (and not so pros) out there, any tips on how to use the curlers better? =)

Happy birthday Jose Rizal!
Happy Birthday Dirk Nowitzki!
IKR. 2 heroes sharing the same birthday. Are you kidding me?? Haha!

I think you have nice hair, Ghoent! Considering na suklay lang ang ginagawa mo sa kanya! Haha. The waves, I agree, they're not bad! I think I like your straight hair better but the waves would be good once in a while when you're bored with your straight hair. :))

I'll go look for those scissors. Haha. I've been trimming my bangs with paper scissors ever since //FAIL haha

ghoent said...

Thank you Claire! :D Your right, I'll probably go for curls only when I'm bored and have plenty of time in my hands! =)) I like my hair straight too. =P

Bought the scissors at Watsons also! I think I saw another version at HBC, with a cheaper price tag (although I'm not sure if it's steel like that of Watsons'). =)

my friend bought this for me during my birthday (or was that christmas lol) in 2009... happy with the curler, totally NOT happy with the straightening device, and also do not know how to use the spikey stick thing. hahaha. how did the straightener work on you?

come visit/follow me if you'd like?


ghoent said...

Hello Eden!

I have to agree! The straightening device is sorta useless. It tames some strands I guess, but it doesn't straighten the hair! haha!

You have a really interesting blog! And so fashyown at that. Followed! =)

Thanks for dropping by! =)

your hair looks amazing - mine is super straight too - if only i knew how to use a curling iron haha

Taehreh said...

I like the curls! I have really straight hair too and I've pretty much give up curling it as it never lasts either... maybe if I doused it in hairspray but I am too lazy. heh.
