The Tale of the Hair


December 2005 - June 2006: Curly Goldilocks hair that I styled using lots of curling gel/lotion or leave-in conditioner so that the curls stay ahm curly.


July 2006 - December 2006: Curls are starting to unravel, and yeah, just for the heck of it, I had bangs :P


January 2007 - March 2007: And finally, after more than a year in curls, I was back to my unmanageable, wavy hair. By the time March rolled in, I had hair that was too think and buhaghag to leave untied, and too short naman to get every single piece of hair tied.

I. was. sick. of. it.

But then, one Sunday morning of April, everthing fell into place.

I have just received retro pay.

The stylist promised hair that looks healthy and shiny.

And the clincher: the salon was offering 15% discount on all services.

I then succumbed to the dark side, the path most hated by me when it was all the rage years ago. It was the path I refused to take as I held on to my waves, then embraced their inner curliness by having them permed, and just let them be as they returned to their natural waviness.

Damn you, 15% discount. :P
