Whimsical Curiosity
Monday, June 23, 2008
super ingenius buddy. i pwnz teh w0rld.
(owningz the world, one n00b at a time ^.^ )
(girly post up ahead) (bewarez)

Random-ness. foohtawah.

I attempted to do the "do-it-yourself-lip balm-stain"

I didn't exactly fail to follow all the intstructions, I just neglected to follow the "right way to do it"
So I could not find food coloring in the kitchen, and I stompped all over the place PMS'ing about not having things when I "need" them the most.
Then I thought, "I SHALL DO IT ALL BY MYSELF!!!" I brainstormed about natural red coloring....
big red strawberries, which I had in the fridge.

ah my.
I never fail to make a fool out of myself.
nonetheless, it worked ^.^ haha. *pats her head*
it didn't exactly have the nice juicy red color I hoped for, but it did make my lips slightly pinker than usual. I even tried it on my brother and his best friend, I have pictures to prove it...but meh. I didn't upload them yet.
To dye or NOT to dyeee??
So the majority of people say I shouldn't color my hair. They either say natural is the way to go, or it's a total waste of money to color my beautiful black hair (psh. vain I be. yes. lying I not. no.)...
depending on who I am with, I change my mind constantly on what I want to do...
I see the sense in NOT coloring my hair, less damage, which means healthy-ER hair, not spending 70 USD, which means more money in my slowling growing savings.
But then, if I color my hair, I can have the satisfaction of "looking nice"
everything leans more to NOT coloring my hair, and yet I continue to crave a different hair color. I swear, I am one of the most fickle people you'll ever meet.
Anyhow, I don't have virgin hair, I've dyed it a couple of times now:
1'st time: Professionally done in a hair studio in the Philippines, a nice vibrant red color. Highlights only.
2'nd time: baught CRUDE hair dye in a market place, my girl cousin dyed chunks of my hair, I swear that stuff almost KILLED my hair...it smelled terrible too.
It didn't show at first, but after being exposed to sunlight it turned a bronzy-reddish color, which I was satisfied with. (in the Philippines again.)
3'rd time: baught more crude hair dye, this time in the United States...less damaging...but still done unprofesionally...this time by my guy friend.
meh. we dyed it a violet color, and it covered my red, so we tried a red color and it never showed up :/
4'th time: I learned my lesson and got it done professionally by the lady who does my hair to this day, highlights yet again (I don't think I've ever dyed my entire head) a nice warm red color that barely showed up :)
I'm thinking either red highlights again, with a nice color that actually contrasts my black hair.
Or getting my entire head done with a dark creamy brown, or a nice "bronze" color.

I really like that color, but I'm not sure I could pull it off so well as Ayumi Hamasaki can. (on a side note: I DID'NT KNOW HER ENTIRE FACE WENT UNDER THE KNIFE!! That makes me feel a WHOLE lot better about myself. *grins*)

Or that brown. I could pull off that brown ^.^

meh. whatever. I go sleep now.

I keep WANTING to dye my hair but when I go to the hairdresser she raves about my beautiful soft black virgin hair and I don't wanna dye it more! doesn't she know that by talking me out of it she's like losing money? ahaha well I think hair always grows out so you shouldn't stress so much about it, and just GET IT DYED ^_^ I love the brown color in the last picture

    @ Nichi:


    Once upon a conversation, I mentioned a type of hair style-color that I couldn't really pin down with words. The "bronze" as you called it was the kind I was thinking of -- highlights like that would look nice.

    If you should so choose. :)
