Hair Diaries: January

Whether it is an intimate family gathering or an out-of-town vacation, having your photo taken is an inevitable occurrence especially during the month of December.

Honestly, I am already happy with the way my hair looks in general. I always get random compliments about my dainty curls. However, when I got to see the photos from our recent Olongapo-Baguio-Vigan-Laoag trip For the nth time: NO, I didn't dye my hair ombre! What really bothered me was how obvious the roots of my hair became!

At first, the cheapskate part of me was telling me I shouldn't spend too much on myself and "wala namang akong pinopormahan lately". But when I found out that the graduation photos were probably gonna be taken on February and Valentines day is just around the corner... why not?

Tiis-ganda moment

A few days ago I went to my inexpensive go-to salon "Petra & Pepita" at Legarda to have my hair colored. Inexpensive in a sense that the rate of their hair coloring for any length costs around P290. However, don't trust the rates of the posters outside because I usually get charged P790 because my hair is "damaged" thus needing Ionic Keratin Treatment. I consider this a steal because my long thick locks usually takes 4 boxes of hair dye just to get everything covered!

Before the salon visit 

I chose the second to the lightest shade in their chart just to have my hair color evened out. I think it was light ash blonde or something like that. I also had a haircut for P38, it was about time that I had my old perm chopped off! I'm not crazy about their haircut though, it wasn't as subtly layered as I wanted it to look. Then again, you get what you paid for so I'm not complaining as much. Lol

After the salon visit

Anywayyyy. I thought it was such a waste to "prettify" myself since I wasn't seeing anyone but then I realized, it wasn't about looking great to please your Future Mr. Right. No one will take care of you better than yourself. It was more of a confidence boost to me. I believe that when you look good, you'll feel good. And hopefully everything else will follow.
