So that’s what you do with baby hairs!

My hair likes to behave like a big crybaby. If I bleach it, dye it or flat-iron it, it dries to the core and becomes untameable and frizzy. Add the extremely humid weather to the mix courtesy of Taipei and it doubles in size, not in the good way. Ohh, and the baby hairs. Those psycho-looking baby hairs will NOT stay in place. I looked up braid-obsessed soap opera actress (crying expert) Adela Noriega for some tress-control hair inspiration. I think this summer I won’t go a day without dem braids and my frizz control serum. Currently using Etude House Silk Scarf Repair Essence, does the job and smells good. Now…if only I could do my own cornrows. These pictures were shot during a touristy run to the INSANELY beautiful Chang Kai-shek Memorial Hall. The heat had me all sticky and exhausted that day but it was totally worth it.

Anyway, big changes coming for the blog soon. Some you might like, some you might want to kill me for. I promise to warn you about them before hand. So exciting!

A mi cabello le encanta comportarse rebeldemente. Si lo plancho, pinto o aclaro, se resiente convirtiéndose en una bola incontrolable de frizz. Si a eso le agregamos el clima extremádamente húmedo, su tamaño se multiplica. Uff, y esos cabellos chiquitines que vienen creciendo…¡son el diablo! Para inspirarme un poco, busqué a la reina de las trenzas (y del llanto), la actríz de telenovelas Adela Noriega. Ahora no me suelto las trenzas de la frente ni salgo sin ponerme “gotas”, mi producto favorito para el frizz. Actualmente uso el Etude House Silk Scarf Serum, porque es Coreano, huele rico y hace bien su trabajo. Estas fotos las tomamos en el increíblemente bello Chang Kai-shek Memorial Hall. El calor me tenía cansada y pegajosa pero valió la pena.   

Aprovecho para contarles que se vienen grandes cambios para el blog, a algunos los amarán y otros seguramente les provocará ganas de ahorcarme pero les prometo dar un aviso previo. ¡Estoy muy emocionada!
