When people tell me, "Wala lang kadala-dala!" (You just don't learn!) I keep my mouth shut. Why? Because they are right.
Yes, there are things in my life that I keep on doing despite them ending up differently from my expectations. Why? Maybe because I don't give up on hoping that someday, somehow, they will end up exactly the way I want them to be. Who knows, maybe it's not me who'll get enough of failing but instead, it will be those things which will end up getting tired of failing just to disappoint me. Same case with people.
Or maybe, sadyang matigas lang talaga ang ulo ko (I am just too stubborn).
Anyway, I am just talking about my DIY haircolor gone wrong (kala nyo kung ano na ano!?) AGAIN! Again, because I've been committing this booh-booh for a number of times already. I once tried DIY haircolor and from having a reddish brown hair (with some highlights), I ended up with black. Not really black but still way darker than my usual.
Read my post about it here.
Though some actually loved how it turned out (most especially Mr. X who prefers me with black hair), still a lot of people said that a lighter haircolor suits me better. And I personally agree. So what did I do? I ended up in the salon weeks after for a full base color plus highlights and some 2-3 hair treatments just to make sure my hair won't end up so dry.
You probably know already that I used to have really long, curly hair until I decided to have it cut to a very short 'do last summer. I had it coloured too with some highlights. Four months (and some ridiculously expensive trims) after, the color has grown out too. I first thought of having the color done when I go home to December (yeah baby, I am coming home for the holidays WOOHOOO!) but I don't think I can wait that long. Ang arte ko lang, di ba!? But since hair services here in the UAE are so darn expensive, I thought of doing it myself again. A box of haircolor costs 50AED or less. Compare that to what…a 350Dhs full-head color!? Pano pa pag may highlights!? No way, jose!
