How To Maintain Your Curls

There are two types of perm

Digital (hot) Perm

Cold Perm

The difference between other perm and digital perm is the shape and the texture of the waves created by the digital process. A normal perm or “cold perm”, makes the wave more prominent when the hair is wet, and loose when it is dry. The hair tends to look moist and as lock, while digital perm make wave most prominent when he hair is dry, and loose when it is wet. Therefore you can create the dry and curly look of the curl iron or the hot curler.

Here’s the 7 guide to increase the lifespan of your curls

1. Get the right products. Once you’ve permed your hair, you cannot use the same products that you did on your virgin hair. Choose a product that will be gentler on you looks and will help them healthy and moisturized, products that are specially designed for curly perms. These includes shampoos, conditioners and styling products. You can ask your Stylist for product recommendation.

2. Getting a perm can take 2-5 hours depending on your hair. Please wait at lease 48 hours before you wash your hair after getting perm, so your hair will be fine. However, if you wash it sooner, your curls might come out uneven.

3. It can be tempting to play with your new curls or waves, but it take the perming chemicals anywhere from 24-48 hours to lock the shape in your hair permanently. In addition your hair will still be fragile from the process. You can use your fingers to style your hair only as necessary during this time. Avoid brushing and combing your hair.

4. The same goes for perm. Perm first to ensure that the perming process will not interfere if you want to applied color. If your using a permanent color wait 7-10 days and shampoo at least once before coloring.

5. The perming process can strip your hair of moisture and it’s natural oils which need to be replaced. The deep conditioning treatment, at least twice a month keep the hair from getting excessively dry, strengthens weakened strands, smooths the cuticle, and help maintain luster.

6. Make sure to treat your hair gently. Avoid pulling your hair tight with a rubber band, but you can safely confine the hair in a scrunchie or a snag-free elastic band, loosely.

7. The only way to reverse the damage and nurse your hair back to health is by conditioning it. It is recommended that you deep condition your hair at least twice a week after getting a perm. After a couple of weeks you can cut down the deep conditioning to once a week.

A festival held in the Philippines in the month of May. It is one of the May devotion dedicated to the Virgin Mary, the celebration is known as Flores de Mayo, Spanish Flowers of May. Some May called it Santaruzan, a religious-historical beauty pageant held in many cities, towns and barrio throughout the Philippines and last for the entire month.

The Santacruzan, Spanish Holy Cross is a ritual pageant held mostly on the last day of May. It honors the finding of the True cross by Helena of Constantinople (Reyna Elena) and Constantine the Great. A cross is used for a Santacruzan, while the image of The Virgin Mary is used in Flores de Mayo, that is the distinction of the two festival but some mixed the two festivals together in one celebration. Flores and Santacruzan.

It is customary for males participating in the Santacruzan to wear the traditional Barong Tagalog and that the females wear any Filipiniana-inspired dress.

There are 16 biblical figures and traditional personifications that represent almost every aspect of the society, and 21 Marian titles, each figure in this group alludes to a title of The Virgin Mary found in the “Litany of Loreto” or to a figure associated with her. Each letter of the Angelic salutation “AVE MARIA” is borne by an “Angel”, or a white dress and wings.

Most known Titles Are:

1. Reyna de las Flores (Queen of Flores) – The Queen of the Flores de Mayo.

2. Reyna Emperatriz (Queen Empress) – A representation of Saint Helena of Constantinople, also known as Queen Helena.

3. Reyna Elena (Queen Helena) – The last member of the procession, she represent Saint Helena herself, whose invention of the True Cross that symbolized crucifix she carried in her arms.

How To Maintain Your Colored Hair

People have been coloring their hair since ancient time.

Rubyanne says “Don’t just live a life of Black and White when there’s a spectrum of COLORS available for you. Don’t confide yourself, instead express urself and have some fun.

Heres the 6 tips for long lasting color and shine

1. After coloring, wait 72 hours before shampooing. It takes up to 3days for the cuticle layer to fully close, which trap the color molecule, allowing for longer lasting hair color.

2. Use sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner only. A sulfate-free shampoo won’t dry your hair out as much as a sulfate shampoo would, since sulfate-free shampoos and conditioner are so gentle, so there’s less likely to wash away your hair dye.

3. You can add dye to your conditioner. It’s a trick. If you mix dye with conditioner, you can lighten the color of the dye a bit. But this will only work with some types of dyes. Mixing hair dye with conditioner only makes fantasy colors end up softer.

4. Turn down water temperature when shampooing. Cold water should be use when rising out the conditioner in your hair at the end of wash day. This is because cold water closes the cuticle and pores in the scalp and also add luster and shine, which is due to the closed cuticle.

5. Wash your hair less often. Shampooing too often may lead to hair that’s less than lush.

6. Use shampoo 2-3 times a week. People who wants to take good care of their hair often thinks that washing it everyday with shampoo is good. Many shampoos contains compounds called sulfates, which produce a rich lather that removes oil from the hair. This can help the hair cleaner, but it can also cause damage.

7. You can use leave-in treatments to protect hair color when styling. Leave-in conditioners, sprays and creams are typically applied after you shampoo and condition, usually to towel-dried hair before styling. They can help provide extra moisture as well as de tangle strands, which can help make styling easier

Minimalist Wedding Trend

Don’t get us Wrong. We love big, bold, beautiful and statement making wedding gowns and dresses, but there’s something to be said about minimalist wedding dresses that make a statement in a whole different way. With so many details and decor options, wedding planning can be stressful, so why not make it simple. Love by cool girls, minimalist has become a major wedding trend.

To tell you, “There is Beauty in Simplicity.” Some may think you need a loaded centerpiece and layers of linens for table settings, or over flowering floral chandeliers interspersed with string lightning, but there’s so much to be said for the minimal touch.

Here’s the 6 helpful tips to plan your minimalist wedding in one week.

1. If you are looking for something a bit more unique. Start by compiling a list of your favorite free or almost free locations. Think of your garage, beaches, rivers, parks, waterfalls, libraries, warehouses, museum, forested areas and pretty much anywhere else! Selecting a venue is undoubtedly one of the most stressful components of wedding planning, not mention that rental deposit will make a sizable dent in your wedding budget. Skip the stress when planning your minimalist wedding instead, focus your energy on selecting a location you and your partner would be honored to exchange vows in.

2. Instead of spending hours pouring over invitation designs, simply send out your wedding invitations online. The environmentally friendly, cost effective will allow you to provide real-time updates to our friends and families. The majority of our communication is carried out on digital platforms, so why are wedding invitations among the only items we print, sign, seal and deliver in 2019?

3. Instead of investing in things you will never use again to satisfy the wedding status quo, use natural, borrowed or refurbished items to create whimsical decorations for your wedding. There are so many DIY project to choose from, so it’s normal to tackle them all, and there are endless possibilities, if your passionate about crafts.

4. If you want to build a healthy budget. Avoid guest list bloat. Ask for wedding help instead of wedding gifts. With registries, gifts, wedding presents. The pressure is on for both guest and host when it comes to wedding gifts, often leading to a multitude of gifts neither part needed. This will alleviate pressure and rid both parties of social obligation associated with giving and receiving gifts. Instead, ask your guest to donate their time, skills, or useful possessions to make your wedding happen. You may surprised by the hidden talents your friends and families possess.

5. Work with small businesses and make sure your purchases were more than just simple. Buyers often need to have anywhere 5-10 times than to rent your wedding gowns and dresses. So plan ahead on what to purchase and rent on your wedding. When it comes to the honeymoon, for many couples planning is entirely dependent on what leftover cash can be squeeze from the wedding. Many couples even forfeit or postpone their honeymoon as a consequence of exceeding their wedding budget. In this case you can do it backwards when it comes to minimalist wedding. You can plan your dream honeymoon first and then use the leftover cash to plan your wedding.

6. Make your wedding an unplugged affair. Ruining the wedding photos isn’t the only reason that some couples are opting for an unplugged ceremony and asking their guest to refrain from taking pictures. They also want the guest to enjoy the day through their own eyes, when the bride walks down aisle she wants to see the smiling, joyful faces of friends and family, not rows and rows of smartphones and camera lenses. You can start by saying “The bride and groom requested that you turn off your mobile phones and put down all cameras. The photographer will capture how this moment looks and I encourage you all to capture how it feels with your heart without the distraction of technology”.
