What It’s Like Wearing A Wig

A friend of mine who wears a wig for aesthetic reason told me that the first time she wore a wig, it felt like how she felt when she wore bra the first time.  She felt awkward and uneasy with a phobia that the wig will be blown off her head but she got used to it pretty quickly.   It felt slightly uncomfortable and hot but that’s only when she’s walking under the sun.

Some people comment that wearing a wig feels like wearing a swim cap or a hairy hat.  The materials used to make the wig can  be very itchy.   If it’s a comfortable fit, soft fabric, and quality hair, you may forget you’re wearing one until you touch your head.  Most of the time, there is always something that will bother the scalp or constantly touch you, such as baby hairs, hair inside the wefts, a loose hair net, and friction.

If you choose a wig with good ventilation, it will be easy to wear, light and will not cause a lot of heat. If you choose a wig with less ventilation, and thick layers, it will make you sweat a bit depending on your outside temperature. Also the feeling will vary for folks with lots of hair already on their head vs bald.

Whether you are looking for straight  hair extensions, blond weave, cheap blonde wigs or kinky wigs, it is best that you do some research on the internet and read up  reviews on wigs before settling on one.  Maxglam hair reviews is one site that you can read up on wigs.

Tips for Dealing with Hair Loss

As you start to get older, it is very likely that you are going to notice that there are certain areas of your scalp where your hair is either thinning or balding. This can be extremely frustrating. In addition to the fact that it makes you realize that so many years have passed, you understand what a negative effect it is having on your appearance. It makes you realize that you can never go back in time and be the youthful person you once were. While you may feel like the situation is completely grim, there is no need to worry. There are lots of things that you can do to combat hair loss.

The first route that you may decide to take is to use natural products. There are a variety of at-home treatments that you may decide to try it first that may be able to help you deal with the problem of thinning or balding hair. For example, many have found that by using a treatment of onion juice, garlic, egg, and olive oil, they are able to not only improve the areas where their hair is thinning, but they also see fewer gray hairs.

Hair loss: A hair surgeon has revealed if home remedies to cure balding actually work

If this does not work for you, you may decide to speak with a medical professional and look at the different options that are available for hair transplants, like Artas robotic.  When a person uses a hair transplant treatment, they need to have an area where donor hair is growing in a healthy way. For example, it is common for men who are dealing with male pattern baldness to take the hair follicle donations from the back of their head. The hair follicles will be transplanted to the top of their head. Since the techniques have advanced so much, very few people are dealing with ugly scabbing, scars, bleeding, and the other things that used to be associated with these types of treatments.

Do not give in to despair if you are dealing with hair loss. There are a variety of treatments out there that can help you. Improve your diet, improve your hair care routine, and speak to your doctor about the different treatment options that are available for you.

Trendy Tresses

Buttery blondes, balayage, sexy shades of brown, fiery ombrés, fantasy colors from pastel to purple to green — there are so many hair color trends to choose from.  You may be tempted to try a new color each month, especially for the coming Chinese New Year!

If you are looking for a new shade to switch up your hair color to give you a little excitement, you can try subtle balayage hair colors.  Subtle balayage highlights require maintaining your original hair base while going lighter towards the tips without too much drastic change.  Besides blonde, I like balayage, which was all the rage along with pastel hair highlights and colouring in 2017.

If you are one who loves colors just like myself but hate the harsh chemicals  damaging your hair and scalp, you can try hair weaves.  Hair weaves are made out of human or artificial hair and it is woven or integrated into one’s natural hair to make it longer, fuller, or to create a certain hairstyle. You can either have it straight, in 360 frontal wig, curly, wavy, in all hair colors possible.  You can get a blonde lace front wig or blonde weave and  you can even color and restyle the wig.

Wigs are a hot beauty accessory that enables you to change your look in a snap. In fact, it is now the norm for women including celebrities such as Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian.  Wigs are the easiest way to transform your look and make a major statement—no commitment necessary. Remember Katie Homes whose blunt bob was so real and convincing that almost the whole world thought that it was the real deal?

If you’d like to get a little attention rocking your faux tresses this coming Chinese New Year, there are many places where you can buy faux tresses and one such place is at Max Hair Glam.

 

 

 

How To Look Youthful

If you are not endowed with youthful DNA, fret not. The main tools to combat ageing are food and exercise closely followed by skin care and hair care.

Cutting down on calories could significantly slow the ageing process, say scientists. They believe that the key to a better old age may be to reduce the amount of food on our plates, via an approach called calorie restriction. This diet goes further than cutting back on fatty foods from time-to-time; it’s about making gradual and careful reductions in portion size permanently.

Exercise slows cell aging. Exercise doesn’t just make you feel younger – it may actually turn off the aging process in your chromosomes. The powers of a steady fitness routine are impressive: regular exercise can help you build stronger muscles, stave off chronic illnesses and make your clothes fit a whole lot better. But there’s another benefit of physical activity that deserves a shout-out: the way even moderate amounts seem to shave years off your age, no matter how many birthdays you’ve actually celebrated.

Pamper your skin. As we age, our skin changes and we may not feel as confident with our faces. Having a young looking face and glowing skin can also be signs of health and vitality and influences how others react to us. By practicing good skincare, modifying your lifestyle (get enough sleep and eat clean), and considering medical treatments, you can make your face look younger and have glowing, youthful, skin.

Pamper your hair too. Just as our skin ages, so does our hair. We need to moisturise it more and pay more attention to it. The oil glands shrink with age and produce less oil, hence the lack of shine and moisture, and the diameter of your hair gets smaller so you have less body. If, like me, you have thin, dry hair to begin with, it’s a disaster. Thus, I have lots of bad hair days.

Cover up your greys and whites. It’s best to choose a color that is fairly similar to what your natural hair color is so that it appears more natural. You could choose to get your hair dyed at a salon, or you could choose the cheaper option and buy an at-home hair dying kit. You must remember, however, that all hair dye is damaging to the hair, so avoid dying it too often, and use products designed to care for damaged or dyed hair. An alternative to dying your hair is to don on a wig.  Modern technology has created wigs from human hair that gives you a natural look. You could choose blonde lace front wig or blonde bundles if you have fair skin and want lighter color wigs.  I don’t mind some blonde hair extensions clip in to give my dull hair a lift 😉

Banish stress. Finally, give yourself a break. I can never stress this enough – kick off the stress! I know I am guilty as charged. Recent studies show that stress causes physical changes in the body that can accelerate aging. It shores up inflammatory processes in skin that can exacerbate conditions like psoriasis, acne, and eczema. Social support plays a huge role in stress levels, so make sure you’re meeting up with friends. Or do anything that makes you happy. Also consider relaxation techniques like breathing exercises or journal writing. Whenever I blog, I feel de-stressed and happy 🙂

Back To School

Today I dropped off the big girl at the hair salon for a hair cut before the new school term next starts next week.  The high school that she’s studying at is pretty strict with students’ hair styles.  Girls with long hair must have their hair tied into a bun. Hair must be kept to a length of 5 cm above the collar for  girls with short hair. And there can be no fanciful styles and no concave cut for those who wish to spot a bob haircut. Absolutely no hair bundles  or lace closure on your hair. Failure to abide by this rule would risk the student having his/her hair cut by the disciplinary teacher. Thus, if you see a high school girl spotting a neatly bundled up bun or a  general bob up to  ear or chin level  you would have guessed it right that she’s from a Chinese school.  After going through eight years of Chinese school with my girls, I now have the ‘expertise’ to set apart a Chinese school kid vs. a national school kid vs. an international school kid at just one glance.

Sherilyn is finally over and done with Chinese schools with draconian rules.  Next week she will be going to a national school.  There will be no more struggles with coiffuring her hair into grandma buns every morning. She can keep her hair long again and all she needs to do is to tie it up into a pony tail. Her hair is now at an awkward length. It is neither long nor short. Leaving it alone would be too unkempt while tying it up would render her hair looking like a pig’s tail.  But this is just temporary. She’s pretty unperturbed by her hair and has not asked me for a hair extension with lace frontal yet.

In just two days the girls will be back to school and back to the grind.  While I will terribly miss sleep ins, I am so glad that we will be back to reality. I have been slacking in my daily exercise regimen this school holidays. I miss getting back on the tracks and pool again at 6:30 every morning.

Here’s wishing all my readers a very happy new year. My new year resolution is to get an extra  hour of sleep each day, stay healthier and get more hair growing on my head. After a turbulent year with a couple of major scares to my health and losing some hair caused by anemia, I am now hell bent on loving myself more.   In the meantime, perhaps I’ll get myself some wigs if I really have to look elegant and pretty for the bunch of upcoming wedding dinners in 2018 😉

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Make Over This Christmas

The girls and I will be making a trip back to my hometown tomorrow.  Besides planning on a day-trip to explore the  Gua Tempurung caves, I am bringing them to our regular hair salon for a no-frills and cheap hair cut. I definitely need a trim of my  waist-length hair.

After going through months of severe hair loss due to anemia, my hair has finally stopped shedding like dog’s fur.   My locks has now become really thin and limp.  I recall the days earlier this year where my hair would stick to my fingers and come off my scalp each time I go through my wet hair after a hair wash. It was so bad that  I would count how many strands of hair I shed each day.  I thought I was going to go bald. I Googled ’causes for hair fall’ and discovered that one of the reasons for severe hair fall is anemia.  Things are looking up now that my total blood count has improved significantly.

If I am invited to a  wedding dinner now, I think I will need to get some hair bundles or loose wave weave to conceal my less than perfect hair.

These days, wigs are fast becoming as commonplace as hair-color, acrylic nails and body-shapewear for that instant boost in beauty, confidence, and overall fabulousness.  I have never tried wearing a wig but am game to try.  My two younger daughters will definitely think it’s a cool and fun thing to wear a wig to a party, especially a colored one.

With wigs, there are limitless styles.  We can change our hair in an instant from long to bob, wavy to straight.  Whether it is a lace frontal closure or a hair extension, we can choose a wig that enhances our natural hair or make a statement with a bold, new look.  Either way, you have total control over your style, head to toe.

Are you game to try on some funky or natural looking wigs this Christmas and New Year’s Day? 😉

 

How To Become A More Beautiful Mom

Oftentimes, mothers get so caught up in the hard work of raising children that they neglect their physical appearance. This is a dangerous road to go down because it can compromise self-esteem. To get your beauty back so that you can maintain the level of confidence necessary to enjoy life fully, use some or all of the following techniques:

1. Use Skin Enhancing Strategies
One of the best ways to become a more beautiful mom is by implementing strategies that will enhance the condition and appearance of your skin. Luckily, there are hundreds of techniques you can use to realize this objective. One is obtaining a monthly facial from an aesthetician who can zero in on key skin issues such as fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. You might also consider attaining assistance from Colorado dermatology specialists such as Colorado Skin Care.

2. Start Weight-Lifting
In addition to utilizing skin enhancing strategies, make sure that you tap into the power of weight-lifting. This strategy can prove particularly powerful in enhancing your level of beauty for several reasons. One is that weight-lifting improves your metabolism, thereby optimizing the body’s ability to burn calories and contribute to the weight loss or weight management process. Additionally, weight-lifting promotes better posture. If you’re unfamiliar with the world of weight-lifting or feel that you might subject yourself to injury if you go it alone, consider the value of hiring a personal trainer to develop a customized strength training program on your behalf.

3. Meditate Every Single Day Of Your Life
As many health and beauty experts know, stress negatively impacts the body in a manner that can really detract from the individual’s physical appearance. For example, excess stress increases cortisol production within the body. Some research studies indicate that cortisol is linked to weight gain. Another adverse impact that ongoing stress can have on the body is premature aging which materializes in the form of things like fine lines and wrinkles. One stress-busting strategy you can implement to counteract these effects is meditation. In addition to relieving stress, meditation is known to produce a wide range of desirable outcomes like sounder sleep, boosted immunity, and clearer thinking.

Laser Skin Treatments

Laser skin treatments can make your skin look healthy and rejuvenated. Precise, powerful laser treatments target light beams to the skin to address medical issues and cosmetic concerns. Laser treatments are both effective treatments and time-efficient.

Many laser treatment appointments take just minutes from start to finish. There’s little or no pain involved so anesthesia usually isn’t required.

Laser treatments help to enhance skin’s texture and appearance. Some of the most popular skin laser treatments include laser hair removal, rosacea treatment, sun-damaged skin treatment, vein and telangiectasia removal, and psoriasis treatments. Cosmetic dermatology Oregon has everything you need to enjoy more youthful, healthy-looking skin.

Are You a Good Candidate for Laser Skin Treatment?
Before you have any laser skin treatment, ask the doctor if you’re a good candidate for the procedure. Book a consultation to ask the doctor to explain any procedure that interests you and provide an estimate for how much the treatment will cost. You may need multiple appointments to achieve best results.

If you want to proceed, the doctor will create your customized procedure plan.

Laser Hair Removal
Shaving, waxing, or tweezing unwanted hair is frustrating for many people. If you want to remove the wanted hair, ask about laser hair removal. Laser hair removal can be used to remove excess hair from the face, arms, legs, bikini line, underarms, or other areas. Because laser hair removal is so precise, it’s possible to target unwanted hair without damage to the skin.

• Because so many people prefer the results of laser hair removal, it’s one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures across the U.S.
• Laser hair removal works by sending highly concentrated light into the patient’s unwanted hair follicles. As the pigment absorbs the light, the hair is destroyed.
• The Cynosure Cynergy ™ laser is used to treat larger areas of skin. Each session is usually 15 – 30 minutes. Most patients require three or four sessions every six weeks to remove excess hair.

Rosacea Treatment
People with rosacea are often embarrassed by constant redness, flushing, and dilated capillaries, known as telangiectasias, under the skin. The pulsed dye laser (PDL) can help people with rosacea to improve their skin. Laser treatments eliminate swollen capillaries on your cheeks, nose, or around the mouth. There’s little to no discomfort involved with the treatment.

Sun-Damage Skin Treatment
Excess sun exposure can cause irregular pigmentation and redness to the skin. Laser treatments can destroy these blemishes and bring back the look of moist, healthy, youthful skin.

Treating sun damage isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution, however. Some people with darker skins may not be good candidates for laser treatment. However, many other treatment options may be considered to solve sun damage problems. To protect your skin between treatments, plan to use sun block protection.

Vein and Telangiectasia Removal
Broken capillaries and superficial leg veins may be embarrassing on legs, arms, or on the face. Depending on the location of the broken vessels, the Multiplex laser or the pulsed dye laser can destroy these unsightly veins and capillaries.

Psoriasis Treatment
Psoriasis is a persistent skin problem for many people. It’s often resistant to medicines and creams. The XTRAC laser can help to remove psoriasis plaques without pain. Most patients require several treatments to remove psoriasis patches. It’s possible to see a marked improvement in your skin in just three to four sessions. Many insurers cover XTRAC laser treatments for psoriasis, including Medicare.

Summing Up
If you want to reveal healthy, moist, and beautiful skin, consider laser skin treatments.

 

Funky Wigs

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

I used to have thick luscious hair but I have lost a great deal of my precious locks after the birth of my children. Blame it on the hormones. Thankfully when my babies started to creep and crawl, I saw lots of baby hair sprouting and standing atop my crown 😆😅 What glorious sight!

A few months ago, I started to shed hair again. The amount of hair that fell off my scalp after each hair wash was worrying. I wondered what was wrong. Could it be that I am aging? Was it caused by stress and worriment? Or do I lack  certain nutrients?

I later learned that my hair loss was contributed by iron deficiency. After my diagnosis of being anemic with low red blood cells early this year (no thanks to a uterine fibroid), I did some research on anemia and learned that being anemic can cause hair loss too. Ahhh, this explains the unusual hair loss!

I am now on a high iron diet to boost my red blood cells. Hopefully my effort pays off and my hair follicles will strengthen, else I will have to get myself some wigs online!  Actually it’s not that bad an idea to wear a wig.  Celebrities don on them and they look terrific.  Most times, you can’t even tell when they wear a wig.  Keira Knightley has been wearing a wig for years and no one realized it initially.

Hair loss happens to even the best of us. Wigs give us fresh hope, positive transformation and confidence.  At BlackHairspray.com, you’ll find a complete range of wigs, weaves, lace front wigs, ponytails, braids and beauty supplies. Buying wigs online gives us the privacy that we need as opposed to buying from brick-and-mortar shops. If you are worried that the wig wouldn’t suit you, no worries, as BlackHairspray.com offers a no hassle, 30-day return policy.

 

 

BlackHairspray.com offers same day shipping on nearly all products when orders are placed before 4PM EST. Looking at the wig samples at BlackHairspray.com (OMG, they look like real hair!) gives me the itch to try out a wig too! Wigs will come in handy on bad hair days. I’ve plenty of such awful days. 😄

Foot Spa

For the longest time ever, I had a pair of really UGLY feet. And I mean really ugly, especially the soles and heel. Even my part-time helper’s feet are smoother than mine. Even the hubs’ feet are silkier, pinkier and smoother than mine. Damn, I am jealous of the hubs’ feet! Cover my face and body, and one would think that the feet belonged to a hobo.  I kid you not 🙁

So how come I’ve got such disgusting feet?

Firstly, I have ultra dry and sensitive skin, which make the skin look wrinkled.

Secondly, I used to wash Cass’ butt like 30 times in a day since birth for several years. When I washed her in the bathroom, my feet got wet too.  Wetting your feet almost every hourly, 365 days/year, for several years is a harbinger to many problems to come.

Thirdly, I only fancy wearing sandals and wedges (coz they are fast and easy to slip in!), which exposes my heel and toes. Dust / dirt stick to the feet like magnet. If you have cracks on the feet, you’re doomed for sure.

Fourthly, the monkeys at home love to do painting and calligraphy. Sometimes the paint and ink get splattered onto the floor. When I forget to wear my indoor slippers, that would spell big trouble! Why? When you have cracked heels and flaky skin that looks like fish scales, ink and paint would get embedded via the cracks into the inner skin.  Can they come out? NO WAY if you are talking about ink and paint.  My feet used to look like a canvass painting with abstract motives on them, in black ink.

I have tried pumice stone, steel pumice and stain remover and these did not help much to remove the stubborn stain embedded under the cracked skin.

Get the picture of my feet now?

Lately, my feet looked so undesirable till I got repulsive at the sight of them.

BAD! I just had to find a salon to do a feet transformation, however expensive it may cost.

On Thursday last week, while walking to the washroom of a supermarket, an unassuming salon opened by a Filipina caught my eyes. I turned back to have a closer look at the services that they offer. My eyes glistened when I saw foot spa!  I went in to inquire and an appointment was made for the next day. I could not wait to see a transformation of my feet!

Now I understand the feeling of those who are dissatisfied with their looks all their life and finally have the guts to take the aesthetic surgery route to fulfill their life-long dreams of looking beautiful. The self-satisfaction you get when you see a brand new beautiful you is indescribable!

So here I am, having my very first foot spa…

Above pix – getting my feet soaked in hot bubble feet bath, generated by a machine.  Sofia used a special electrical gadget to gently shave off the dried skin off my foot to smoothen the skin.

Above – After the ‘skin shaving’ process which took a frigging 2.5 hours, Sofia used bath salt to wash my legs and feet.

 

Above – Sofia filing the toe nails.  At this point, I had to tell her to stop as I was already at the salon for 3 frigging hours and the girls would be back home from school in another 20 minutes.

Sofia had initially told me that the whole process would only take 40 minutes to an hour but she didn’t know that my feet would take so much time to work on! HAHAHA!

Sofia promised me that I could go back to the salon to continue with where she stopped.  I went back to the salon this morning but Sofia was on emergency leave. I will be back to the salon again on Thursday to continue with my foot spa.

Verdict – this is SO WORTH IT!  I am going to pamper myself with a foot spa every month.  It only cost RM55 and if I sign up for the package, it would cost even cheaper. Yeah, I am going to love my feet more from now 😀

School Holiday – Day 5 (3 June 2016)

Today we had a rather unhealthy breakkie of char koay teow, curry noodles, Hakka noodles, mee rebus and good old iced teh C tarik and kopi peng at our favorite coffee shop alfresco style the Malaysian way — ‘kar liu’ with using 70% washed plates and cutlery (with oil and detergent still intact)  and other germs 😀  Oh well, our body needs those germs to gain immunity from them.

After breakkie, we went to the coolest and most raved about supermarket in town right at the heart of our neighborhood for shopping and to enjoy the cool air conditioning after sweating it out in the morning sun.

Back home, I did some work on the computer while the girls stuck their butt to the couch with eyes glued to You Tube on the idiotic box.

Today, I decided to do something to get rid of the age spots on my cheeks naturally, yikes!!

I applied fresh lemon juice on my age spots and on drama queen’s nose to get rid of those black heads.  Our #1 and #2 are at the age of getting pimples and black heads.  I am trying out natural remedies on their pimples and black heads with lemon juice, melaleuca oil, Izumio and not forgetting that they get their daily dose of exercise to sweat out the toxins from their body.  Click on the link above to hop to my health blog to find out if I had successfully removed those age spots.

Beauty banter – lemon juice for making lemonade and facial astringent for age spots and black heads 😀

Blueberries & cream Haagen-Dazs ice-cream for dessert after dinner.

This is our simple yet fulfilling holiday spent at home 😀

 

 

Of Bushy Eyebrows and Light Eyebrows

I have always wished that I have thicker, more refined and more shapely eyebrows. My brows are very light in color (and sparse), as are my hair color (which is brown) and my skin color. I have very fair skin and I guess God has made my eyebrows light colored to match my overall color coordination.

Despite my light colored hair and eyebrows, my 3 girls are born with dark and thick eyebrows and I am very thankful for that. I always tell Cass that I wish I had her bushy eyebrows as I am so tired of drawing my brows.   I am just so over drawing my brows and have been eyeing on some eyebrow embroidery jobs. Eyebrows are a major part of our face and a pair of seductive eyebrows accentuate the eyes and overall features of our face.  You have to agree with me on this, don’t you?

Many of my friends have had their eyebrows embroidered and I think they look great with more shapely eyebrows.    Well, most of them look better with embroidered eyebrows, except for a handful who now look as if they are some Chinese oprah singers with thick and gaudily drawn eyebrows. This is what one of my friends commented as regards fake eyebrows and she discouraged me from having my eyebrows tattooed or embroidered.  She scared me with stories of how the brows may swell after the job and the many trips I will have to make to the beautician to have touch-ups.  The hubby is also against my idea. He says tattooed eyebrows look very fake and outrageous. Besides, there is no guarantee by the brow impressionist that she can make me look prettier with my new brows. They may even make me look hideous that I need to hide away from the world! The hubby has never liked women with fake and thick eyebrows for that matter. And I am scaredy cat too of a botched job, which may ruin my looks forever!

While shaping up my eyebrows with an eyebrow blade last night…

Cass – mummy, who do you even have to shave your eyebrows huh? I thought you like to have bushy eyebrows like mine?? (asked in a satirical manner)

Me (on the verge of LOL on hearing her sardonic comment!) – that’s because I want my eyebrows to have a nicer shape. So I need to shave off straying hair on my brows.

Cass – yeah, but you said you want to have bushy eyebrows right? So don’t shave it la! Just let it be and they will grow thicker! Just leave your eyebrows alone ok mummy? Then you will have bushy eyebrows! (This 6.5YO can sometimes sound like a woman trapped in a little girl’s body I’m telling you!)

My baby girl sure cracked me up last night and gave me a good laughter therapy.

Back to the topic of eyebrows. I am still very, very tempted to have my brows embroidered. Should I or should I not? Hmmm….
