I Dream of Curls

I've always wanted curly hair. That sexy, just-got-out-of-bed-with-my-lover dishevelled look. While other girls subjected their locks to rebonding or sraightening treatments, I pined over curly locks. I have naturally in between hair. It can't be called stick-straight but it's definitely not curly either. It's somekinda wavy. So on those days when I want a little more oomph, I reach for my curling iron and force out a few curls.

>The first time I tried a curling iron was for a school production and I totally loved it! A few weeks later, my mom brought a curling iron from the US and I wasted no time creating lots and lots of lovely curls. But a few seconds after I wrapped my first handful of almost dry hair around the heated barrel I heard an ominous hissing sound with a nasty smell of burning hair! A quick check at the curling iron's box revealed that hair should be completely dry when the iron is used. Duh! Lesson learned: Always read the manual.

My HG facial wash and moisturizer

Posted by jencc

I found it, I found it!

Because, for the longest time, I had oily skin that would regularly breakout, I automatically reach for products that were indicated for my skin type. But in the recent years, I noticed that my skin seemed to border on combination skin...oily on the t-zone and relatively dry on the other parts.

My confused skin would feel terribly dry after a wash--even with the mildest Neutrogena Facial Bar. I would counter that with a moisturizer (which I have learned to use just recently). It had the greatest scent of bananas (I know, strange, bananas of the face, but I loved the smell!) but was just too sticky for me even though I'd put only a bit. I ended up using this only at night.
