My first ever Blog Giveaway entry!

By on June 29, 2010

I do not wear makeup. At all. Ask anybody. I do not like the heavy feeling of whatever gunk on my face so I do not put even loose powder to take care of the oilies. That’s why most are surprised to find out that I do know how to apply makeup, though not on a hardcore professional level. Haha. But I digress.

In fact I still shudder at that awful memory–the snipping of the scissor blades as chunks of my long and much-beloved hair fell to the salon floor. Oh, the agony.

Though the reason for that drastic change was mostly emotional (letting go and all that), it was also partly due to practicality. As much as I love being Rapunzel, it ain’t easy keeping all that hair all shiny and healthy. The ends were already a bit dry and frizzy and basta-na-tao that I am, I was too apathetic to remedy the condition of my tresses. I was contented with just shampoo and the occasional conditioner (which did nothing for my hair anyway).
