Curly Hair Concerns

Wednesday, October 13, 2010Traveliztera


Curls, curls, curls! They're dangerous! Haha! When I was a child, I had a really perfect straight hair. I was even offered a Rejoice commercial while I was walking at the mall with my mom, but since my school doesn't allow such activities, we declined. I was 7 years old when that happened. I don't know what happened but probably my hair got mad for refusing its opportunity to shine because when I was 8, my hair started to become curly. HAHAHAHA! My mom has a really curly hair so it's not surprising (but why did it only come out after declining the offer? wahahhaha!) Anyway, when I entered highschool, I started rebonding my hair and for 8 years (yep, until college), I went on with the routine since you know how weird the look becomes after the original hair grows again and you have this perfect straight hair after the original part. I didn't want to do that anymore and decided to end the cycle by having my rebonded hair permed so that when the original part of my hair grows, everything's balanced already--I'm completely curly. And oh yeah, curls are no longer discriminated these days.

Wanna see photos of my hair evolution? Check out my post about my hair:

I just wanted to share that because someone messaged me something about hair concerns:

"hey steph! blog something about hair products. i'm finding it hard to tame my curly hair huhu.

i'm so envious of your hair, love the curls lalo na yung bagsak [especially the way it bounces (thanks Em for the term) ]

i need to find something na, it has been months, hindi pa rin ako nakakahanap ng pwede kong magamit [i need to find something, it has been months, but i still can't find anything that i can use ] (the problem is, tumutubo na yung dati kong buhok huhu[the problem is, my original hair is already growing huhu] ), kaya ba pangit yung sakin kasi pinakulot ko lang? :(( haha [is it ugly just because i only had it permed? :(( haha]

anyway, if i may ask, what do you use pala?

finesse kasi gamit ko, yung curl defining. [i used finesse]
do you also blow-dry it or something?

ayun, thanks steph. love your blog, also mshypersinger haha cute :)

Hiya apple! I love your curls by the way! I didn't know you were having problems with it... =\ I hope this post helps you out...

I was able to use FINESSE back then too! I also like VO5 Extreme Mousse Curvaceous Curls, so you might want to try that one out too if you're not satisfied with Finesse. 

What I usually do is after taking a bath, I comb my hair using my fingers so that they're not all tangly (I don't use brushes or combs). I towel dry it and add the mousse all throughout my hair right away. I just let my hair dry that way and tadahhhh, neat curls. Hehe. In your case, since your straight hair's growing already, I suggest that when you're putting the mousse, do scrunching motions.

I hope this helps! :D

    i always wanted to have my hair permed,, kaso un din ang fear ko,, baka di ko ma-manage.. thanks for this info! hopefully next month mapaayos ko na hair ko.. :)

  2. deymmm! here again Imma give my comment a try darn this laptop lol!

    like you, my hair started out as straight and got curly and curlier as I grow older. =)) I had it chemically straightened twice and now I only use an iron (CHI) to straighten it.

    for "bagsak" how about bouncy? i'm so envious of your hair, love the curls lalo na yung bagsak I envy your bouncy curls? :D ?? maybe?! hehe

    and if I may add few suggestions: after taking a bath and I decide on just leaving it as it is, I, too don't brush or comb it, nor towel dry my hair. Why?my hair gets caught sometimes in the towel & I hear them break/snap. so what I do is I just wrap it around loosely for a bit just until the towel absorbed the wetness of my hair.

    I use sunsilk curls (I forgot what it's exactly called) or the Pantene mousse. :D

    but hey, having curls has its best part too. :D the "attitude" it screams on "pictorials". :D agree? haha

  3. That's my problem too. I have been rebonding my hair for years :( I am wearing my worse crowning glory whenever my hair grows. Will try to use those :) Thanks!

  4. this blog applies for girls but i want to comment kasi i wanted a curly hair kasi since childhood hangang ngayon may hair is straight sobrang bagsak. kung pwede nga lang mag pakulot.
