If you dye and style your hair as often as I do, you’ll totally need a moisturizing hair treatment. I try to have treatments for dry hair at least once a month so I can restore my hair quality back to its healthy, shiny state. I can feel the difference if I don’t get to do this because it becomes a lot more difficult to comb and style my hair.
Freshly shampooed hair! I had a conversation with the Status Salon Tomas Morato people about haircare in different countries. Because we live in a humid, tropical country, it’s totally understandable for us Filipinos to wash our hair everyday, unlike those in other countries who only wash their hair every other day (or even only once/twice a week - yikes!). Just don’t overdo it by shampooing a million times and using insane amounts of shampoo every single time. I learned that it’s better to dilute your shampoo with water so you just get the right amount! Too much would remove the moisture in your hair completely.
It’s these little things that make such a huge difference!
Treatment time! The one for dry hair has aloe vera extract in it for “healing” purposes.
Free scalp massage too - yay!
They wrapped my hair and let the treatment set for 20 minutes before washing it off.
Voila! Healthy hair! I resisted the urge to cut and dye my hair this month because I feel like my hair needs to rest.
Based on my own personal experience, I don’t recommend drastically changing hair color every month (unless you’re going to do your roots only). However, if you really have to, drop by Status Salon and get a moisturizing treatment as often as you can!
My usual stylist Jimmy wasn’t available the day I visited so here’s Mr. Orlan helping me out with some fresh clip-on extensions to match my dark hair color!
The extensions they offer at Status Salon are 100% human hair so you can style them with heat and hair products as you would your real hair.
Long, dark hair is in! Thanks to Status Salon for taking care of me, as usual!

In the meantime, here are some outfit inspirations featuring some of my old Lookbook photos!
CUTE OOTD key point: lace and floral prints
HIPPIE OOTD key point: flower crowns, tribal prints, and summer sunnies
PRETTY OOTD key point: classic cuts and dainty skirts
SEXY OOTD key point: off shoulder, crop tops, short shorts
Always gotta be prepared for a little chilly drizzle! It’s still generally too warm to wear knits and heavy fabric, so layering is key with this kind of transition weather we’ve been having lately. I’ve always been an ame-onna (雨女, or rain woman) though - I greatly increase the chances of rain when I go out, so I always never leave the house without some form of outerwear. I get cold easily!
Here I wore a jacket from Just G’s latest “Tribe Squad Remix” collection, and it’s an amazing cross between a sweatshirt and a denim jacket! What I like most about this particular one is that it doesn’t come with a hoodie, which is common among sweatshirt-sleeved jackets. I think it looks a little more dressy this way! Don’t you think so too?
I can’t wait to pair it with my cutesy skirts!
The much awaited Just G Warehouse Sale will be on June 27 - August 16, 2014 at Warehouse 23, Armal Compound 2, M. Eusebio Ave., San Miguel, Pasig City. Mondays to Saturdays, except Holidays and Sundays, 8:00am to 4:00pm. They’ll only accept cash, btw! Make sure you bring enough!
Have fun shopping!
