Hello hello hello hello!!! My two weeks’ worth of chika are already jiggling with excitement as I type away! I’m very sorry for being MIA for a long time. I know I’ve given this excuse many times in the past, but I swear I’m so busy that Randy is even frowning upon the fact that I’m squeezing this blogging in.
But how can I not blog? Last week I got this really touching comment on my two-week old “latest” blog entry:
‘Di ba? Denise, thank you so much for this very sweet message! I truly, truly appreciate this!
Anyway, as Denise has alluded–happy new hair to me! Yes, after almost three years, I’m straight again!
When my curls (digipermed in October 2013) have started getting really loose and the ends of my hair got really dry, I started hating my hair and knew pruning time was inevitable. At first, my friends told me to renew my digiperm. But I was tired of it. I wanted to sport a bob to get rid of the remaining curls.
To convince my friends to support my quest to have a more modern and stylish hair, I actually pestered the salesladies of Metro Gaisano at ATC to put a wig on me:

Chrys: Ay Dewmaine para ka rin palang si Charice nung paunti-unti na syang nag-a-out…Zaira tumabi ka kay Dewmaine, dali! Tapos Dewmaine mag-pose ka nang parang ‘yung mga nakakunot parang si Charice…
Chrys: Ayaaaan perfect! Kayo na si Charice at Mommy Racquel!
Guys, ganyan talagang kaibigan si Chrysanthemum Collado! #SanayNaKami

Anyway, I actually sported a bob five years ago. And people told me I looked great. Lookie lookie:

In fairness, I think I looked fresh and young sporting that bob. However, I’m a wash-and-wear girl when it comes to hair—as in I’m very lazy and terrible when it comes to fixing my hair (digiperms and stick straight hair give me that luxury). And the hair in the photo above took me ten minutes to achieve, and I had to use a blower! My hair tends to flyaway when short. And I’m not willing to spend 10 minutes on my hair every day, thank you very much.
But my hopes went up when I heard about the Keratin Treatment aka Brazilian Blowout aka Permanent Blowdry. When Randy went to Obagi at ATC for his checkup, I scoured the nearby beauty parlors and asked about Keratin Treatment aka Brazilian Blowout aka Permanent Blowdry. I was told it does not straighten like rebonding but that it does remove the frizz. I showed the hairstylists the hairstyles I’d like to achieve: [Read more…]
