Why + How Dry Shampoo Could Be Damaging Your Hair (and Scalp)

There were a number of ways that I wanted to title this. In part, this is a celebratory post because I’ve noticed just how comfortable my hair and scalp has been feeling. It has taken many months – maybe even a year – but I’m feeling better than ever. If you haven’t been following you can read my initial post, Why I Stopped Using Dry Shampoo. There, I tell you a brief history about my hair, and then the problems that I encountered when I started to use dry shampoo which led to my hair and scalp issues. I was happy to have shared the post because I didn’t realise just how impactful it’d be and truthfully, it was nice to know I wasn’t the only one suffering. So please, I urge you to read it especially if you do use dry shampoo – you might just be saving your hair and scalp from all the problems that I had. Note: You should ought to read this article too. Shortly after discovering how much my issues have healed over time, …

Why I Stopped Using Dry Shampoo

I’ve been dry-shampoo-free for a good couple of weeks now. I would consider myself to have gotten on the bandwagon quite late (probably two years ago or less?) but as it happens, I’m completely off it now. The truth is, if you’re not careful, you can become very dependent on dry shampoo. It’s so easy. Too easy. I’m not here to tell you not to use the product at all by the way but as with everything else in life – moderation is key. And if high-school-me had discovered this product back then – gosh, I would’ve considered it my saviour and blessing. I was that girl who’s hair would get greasy from the roots on the second day. Maybe even after a day and a half. It definitely didn’t help either that I had jet black locks and at one point – bangs. It was one of the things that I was embarrassed by; and as luck would have it, I’d go into school half the week looking less than great but you can also …

#PFW S/S17 Welcome to the Revolution! | Favourites 2

Known as the ‘City of Love’. Love for so many things that do not exclude Fashion. Love for the Arts, the People, the Culture. This is Paris! Sacai This is one of the newer brands in my vocabulary that I’m getting to know more and more about 🙂 and this season may have been their strongest collection to date! To give you a little insight, the brand is founded by Chitose Abe who previously worked as a pattern cutter under Rei Kawakubo at Comme Des Garçons and later, as a design member at Junya Watanabe. From there on, you can expect super creativity but it doesn’t stop there. No. It never stops. The dreams keep rolling. The aesthetic of Sacai is fresh, exciting and ever-evolving that moving from New York to Paris to show, cements its worth. You can expect the mixing of different fabrics from Sacai – quite like collage, executed with such finesse that the idea of collage was a second thought. The clothes though! It’s worth seeing any video footage you can find, as …

#PFW S/S17 Creative Souls | Favourites 1

Known as the ‘City of Love’. Love for so many things that do not exclude Fashion. Love for the Arts, the People, the Culture. This is Paris! When it comes to Paris, the focus is inevitably on the famous Fashion Houses. But what remains always challenging and evolving is the stories and legacy that they continue to build upon. This is about how the present is effected by the past to ensure the future for these Fashion Houses. As you may know from some of my previous posts, some big brands have gone down a 180 degree route after the appointment of its newest creative director. In this post though, we’re not talking about any 180 degree flip although can’t say it’s remained at 0 degrees either! Balmain The appointment of Olivier Rousteing has had an enormous effect on Balmain. The other good news? He’s not going anywhere just yet. Not when he shows a collection like this! (If one day, he decides to, I’m sure that he will also show a stunning collection by …

#PFW Recap ‘…even the biggest balloon eventually bursts’ | Controversial

Known as the ‘City of Love’. Love for so many things that do not exclude Fashion. Love for the Arts, the People, the Culture. This is Paris! I’m going to start out softly with this post which will otherwise be critical (I don’t want to say negative). But given the many favourites I have already mentioned in other fashion weeks, where designers have been on a high, it’s necessary to show the lows too. Then you can decide for yourself what it means to reach potential…or not. Rick Owens I like to think of Rick Owens as a conceptual artist and not just a fashion designer, because his collections are directly that – conceptual. But this season’s collection fell a  bit short for me. Rick Owens to me, pursues a type of darkness that is not so often seen and a rare beauty it is. The problem I have here is that I don’t feel that it’s a finalised collection. Much of it still felt very experimental and not quite sure of itself yet (until …
