Favorite Shampoos

I don't really have the "normal" Asian hair that many have: coarse, thick mane of hair that needs conditioning and can go for days without shampooing.

I have to shampoo every day. I've tried to skip and it never works out. More natural ingredient shampoos, dry shampoos, etc. it just doesn't happen.

Also, with the added benefit of the occasional eczema flare up (which worsened suddenly and dramatically with pregnancy hormones), heat made my scalp angry. Wet hair made my scalp angry. Heck, even the dandruff it produced due to irritation made it more irritated. I just couldn't win.

So! Here are my favorite shampoos that have not irritated my scalp, made it more greasy than it usually gets at the end of the day, or weighed it down.

1. Bumble and bumble Seaweed Shampoo 8 oz

This is a really good middle of the road shampoo for me as far as price. The smell is lovely, it lathers (if that matters to you), and most importantly it gets my hair clean without any sort of film or heaviness.

2.Nature's Gate Tea Tree Calming Shampoo, 32 Fluid Ounce

When my eczema decides to say hello, this is what I turn to. It has a nice cool tingling effect and used with the conditioner, it has helped my scalp calm down and begin to heal. Drugstore level stuff so it's not expensive and it smells nice.

3.Shu Uemura Gentle Radiance Cleansing Oil Shampoo 400ml 13.4 oz

High-end brand. I only get this when there's a sale. The smell is floral and light, and it cleans without stripping my natural oils. This is more of a once in a while treat but I use it when I can to switch things up.

Announcement!

Hey guys, sorry I haven't been around to update. It's a bit of the same procrastination and a lot of...being PREGNANT.

Yeah, that happened. I am currently 20 weeks in and starting to have tummy. Woo.

So! Expect more updates. I'll try to balance it with other things but I might make more personal posts about this whole baby deal. So, I guess what I'm saying is sorry if you don't wanna read about that. 

Later!

Bored? 5 Netflix Movies I'd Recommend

Long time no chat. I've been busy but here are five movies I would recommend if you have some free time. I'm not going with any particular genre nor focusing on Oscar-worthy films. Just things that I've watched that I surprisingly liked.

Detention (2011) - This is just a fun, random movie. What I described to people is that it has a serial killer, teen angst, pop culture references, and a time-traveling alien bear. Yes. Exactly.

Antisocial (2013) - Epidemic hits. Bad things happen. Paranoia runs rampant as people take to social media to figure out what is the cause of the virus. It is a mildly interesting take on the zombie theme but really not that original. Overall quality though is really good for what it is.

Grabbers (2012) - What happens when blood-sucking aliens show on an island in Ireland? Get drunk of course! Cheeky humor and a horror movie that doesn't try to take itself seriously. Well done.

6 Souls (2010) - Psychiatrist that debunks the idea of multiple personalities comes across a unique case where all the personalities of the patient are murder victims.

Battle Royale (2000) - With their society falling apart and the children rebelling against their elders, Japan institutes the "Battle Royale" Act. A class is chosen to participate in a fight to the death against each other with only one winner.
