I love to swim. Sea, ocean, pool, rivers, lakes, you name it, I’ll swim in it. But I also love my hair. I damaged it irrevocably by bleaching. Then damaged it further by coloring and styling. So I try to NOT damage it when I swim. To care for your hair before, during, and after swimming, these tips might just save your hair.
Our cultral norm hails fair pale skin as the epitome of beautiful. Combine it with long straight jet black hair and we have the usual standard of beauty. But most Filipinas aren’t born with that skin color but actively try to achieve that. There isn’t anything wrong with that, and there are a lot of people who totally rock their fair skin. It’s just that I don’t think that being fair skinned is for me. This isn’t a popular opinion, but let me explain why.
I was born with thick, black hair. I usually kept it long and unstyled. Since high school, I dreamt of getting blue hair, but my mother disapproved. For years and years, I rarely saw people with brightly candy colored hair and I felt super envious of them. And finally, finally, the trend of colored hair has settled in the Metro and I got permission to follow my dream.
My first experience with coloring my hair was using Manic Panic Atomic Turquoise mixed with Manic Panic Bad Boy Blue. After it faded, I reapplied with more Bad Boy Blue. I got a bit bored of the color after a while and decided to mix it with Manic Panic Purple Haze at the tips. When /that/ faded, I decided to try Arctic Fox just to see their difference.
