Hair Suicide

I don't think hair suicide is an existing term.
...hmm let's just say i created the term based on personal experience :P

i am a person who can't leave my hair alone!
every few months, i will do something to my hair...
normally i just get a trim that no one would notice the different. :S
and very often i get bored of my hairstyle.

i.e Last year i chopped off my long hair to a bob and maintain mid length.
Now that i missed my long hair so i decided to keep it long again.
However, waiting for it to grow to the length is quite suffering.
i can't trim much and trimming won't give me a different look/style.
Several times, i wanted to do hair extension for the sake of getting my long hair back.
But i hold myself back because i didn't want to waste too much $$$

In early June, the hair thing (i want different hairstyle, but at the same time i still want to keep it long) strike my head again. So desperate for a change.

I went to cut a dolly bangs.
By July, i went back to my usual hairstyle because i was lazy to maintain the bangs.
I had it trimmed once myself and that was it.

In the last week of July, i couldn't stand my hair colour any more. The colour was faded and my hair had grown an inch long! So i bought a pack of BLACK colour hair dye and dye it myself.

Then come August, i saw some promotion at Monsoon-id
and i did Korean spa hair perm!

I quite like the result, very little curls but it looks more natural.
Ooh did i tell you what happen to my black color dye?
I think its the chemical they used to perm my hair. It kind of washout most of the black hair dye.
Leaving a quite bad patchy looking hair color
2 weeks later i bought Liese, Chiffon Beige.
The newly release bubble hair dye.

it was quite cool and i thought i was easier as compared to normal hair dye

massaging to make sure all the colour is even.
but my hair was tangled quite bad maybe because i just perm my hair.
In another words, not advisable for curly hair!

and please make sure read the instruction before use &
watch the how-to video! XD

the colour only came out after a few wash.
but i think the hair dye damaged my curls...:S
the curls almost gone now...sighh its only been a month

all done in 1 1/2 month= hair suicide

my hair is so dry & damaged now but yet i am still thinking to try out something new when i go Korea for holiday in November :D That is if i have time to visit the hair salon.

My First Canvas Painting

I've always love oil painting on canvas and always wanted to try painting one myself.
But i'm not good with painting nor serious about it.

So one day, i decided to fill my weekends with something different.
i went to the shop nearby my place to get some tools...
i got a 12inch X12inch canvas
and a box of oil pastel crayon because i realise brushes are not cheap.

Since i haven't painted anything since high school art class project, i didn't trust myself with freehand painting. Hence, i tried sketching with pencil first.
I didn't like what i've sketched and when i trying to remove the pencil marks....i simply can't.
I just smudge the area i erased on (told u its my first canvas painting experience) :S so i googled on how to erase pencil mark from canvas. Generally, i learned two ways.
i. to paint over it
ii. use gum erase

I can't find the gum erase so i decided to paint over it. Because i am using oil pastel crayon, it just smudge the pencil marks further.

i ended up buying oil pastel color and some cheap brushes to paint over it,
i was trying to be a smarty0pants; trying to save some $$$ ended up paying more for the lesson :S

at the end, i painted a pig freehand XD
it was quite a fun and relaxing to do different stuff once in a while.

here's another picture of my pig painting,
hope u like it :)
