Test Driving Phytocyane Revitalizing Shampoo for Women

When I first used Phytocyane Revitazing Shampoo, my hair felt noticeably lighter, cleaner! I have a feeling that this is going to be worth the close to P800 (approx. $17) it was sold for in Rustan’s. But then again, it is a little soon to conclude that it does its claim of helping women grow back lost hair. I hope it works for me, though. 😉

Things to do to Survive a Bad Haircut

bad-haircut-kikaycorner-dot-netHow does one survive a bad haircut? You only go two ways here. Either you whine and sulk until your hair grows back or you do away with the negativities and accessorize, improve by having it restyled, colored or even cut again. Whoever thought that boy cut isn’t cool every now and then?

Yes, you can be one of those ladies who are forever loyal to a particular hairstylist. But truth to tell, as fine as your hairstylist is, there will always be bad days in his hairstyling career and you will never know if it will be you sitting on his salon chair in one of those days. No one is perfect, that’s for sure. Of course your hairstylist can be forgiven but do you have to get stuck to feeling bad with such a bad haircut.  The answer is a resounding NO!

Making Waves

During the holidays, my cousin Esther who has grown up with two brothers got her taste of eyebrow shaping and other touch ups from yours truly. She officially said goodbye to bushy brows. She loves her new brows, not lines. I still couldn’t figure out why other girls want the line type of brows, which is so out of fashion.

This young lady has long been wondering if curly hair fits her and I readily experimented with her hair. Here’s a shot of her curls:

But the first time I did her hair, we thought her hair got a little too big. She wanted to experiment some more and had me just do a few curls and this is the result- a little too symmetrical this time. I might have to practice on doing prettier waves.

Scalp Massage

There are a number of benefits of scalp massaging. It improves blood flow to head and neck. It also relieves eyestrain and headaches. It is also proven to boost blood supply to the scalp, which in turn promotes hair growth.

Here are steps to stimulate the scalp for stronger hair:

1. Slide your fingers upwards towards the crown. Repeat three times.

2. With a rotating motion, slide the fingers a few inches at a time upward.

3. Following the hairline, move in short circular motion toward the crown.

4. With your hand on the scalp above the ear, push against the hand using some pressure. This is an isometric exercise.

5. Get a handful of hair, grabe it gently. Then try pulling it firmly without using force.
