DIY: Old T-Shirt into Cute Sexy Summer Racer Back Tank Top

at 4/15/2015 0 comments
It's summer time and it's time for DIY. I just want to share with you my very own version of "Recycle Your Old T-shirt into a Tank Top" and it's totally wearable. I think I've worn this creation of mine for about 5x already. It's really a head turner guys and this is totally popular this summer.


MATERIALS NEEDED:

Sharp Scissors
Large or Extra Large old pure cotton T-shirt with cute design.
Needle
Thread (same color of the cloth)

INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Lay flat the t-shirt in the table and start cutting the sleeves carefully.

2. Cut the front neckline according to your desired length but don't over do it if you don't like to show off some serious cleavage. 

3. Cut the back neckline separately according to your own length of how much skin you want to show. Do not cut the neckline all at once to avoid mistakes. Better be careful than have regrets later on. 

4. Cut the bottom part of the T-shirt and stretch it gently to create that folded style. 

5. Don't throw away yet the cut sleeves because we're going to use it to tie it into a knot at the back to create that racer back design.

6. To make a bow by hand stitching, you'll need to use the other sleeve you cut awhile ago by following the video below on "How To Make A Bow by Hand or Sewing Machine"

7. Voila! Congratulations!! You just made the cutest racer back tank top by recycling your old t-shirt or your boyfriend's old shirt.

How To Get Cersei Lannister's Hair Color

at 4/13/2015 1 comments
Hi guys! Game of Thrones is back and I just can't help but to admire Cersei's hair color. But honestly, I secretly want to get Daenery's platinum blonde too. I'm a decisive type of person and decided right away that I want to have her hair color as soon as possible without breaking my piggy bank. So here's what I did.

Note: Do not wash your hair 2 or 3 days before bleaching your hair. The natural oil from your hair will protect your mane from bleach damage. In my case, it's a virgin hair since I didn't dyed nor rebonded my hair for 1 year and 3 months. I also cut off my waist-long hair to shoulder length 'coz I grew tired of maintaining it and the split ends are everywhere.

Here are the things you will need to get her hair color:

Gloves 
Hair color brush
Plastic mixing container
5 sachets or a tub of bleach powder (Hortaleza or Epsa)
12% Oxidizing Lotion (Hortaleza or Epsa)
Deep Conditioner or Coconut Oil
Hair clips
Old T-shirt

Instructions:

1. Mix 1 sachet of bleach powder or a scoop of bleach powder (check instructions) with your oxidizing lotion. 

2. Wear your gloves, old shirt, part your hair into sections and start applying the bleach paste.

3. Apply the bleach mix into thin strands of hair by starting at the bottom inner part of your head and leaving the roots for the last application. 

4. Your hair will start to process in just a matter of minutes and apply the bleach application faster. Also find an assistant to check some spots you can't reach. 

5. Leave the bleach into hair for about 30 minutes or until the color of Cersei's hair color is visible. 

6. Rinse your hair with water first then apply shampoo and then conditioned it for 10 minutes.

7. Voila! You now have Cersei Lannister's hair color.

In my next post, my  hair will be lighter than this 'coz I'm going platinum baybeh! If you're happy with this blonde then you'll just have to stop the process here but not in my case 'coz I'm that type of girl who want to crash out in her "Before I Reach 30 List" which says "Get a Platinum Blonde".


More Advice:

1. It's best if you grow out your hair first for 6 months or more before bleaching your hair.
2. Use coconut oil or apply deep conditioner to your hair and leave it over night after bleaching.
3. To prevent dryness and further breakage, refrain from using shampoo.
4. Avoid or refrain using hot tools. If your hair is naturally wavy, curl your hair using no heat techniques.
5. Trim breakage if there are any after bleaching your hair.
In my next bleach session which is next week, I will be on the "yellow" stage then hopefully to blonde next month. It's advisable not to bleach it right away in just one sitting to protect your hair from further damage. Let your hair heal and don't ever forget applying hair mask or conditioner when washing bleached hair.





My Hair Transformation: From Asian Black or Dark Brown Hair Color to Platinum Blonde (DIY)

at 4/13/2015 0 comments
Hi! As promised, I'm back to talk about the process of my hair transformation ---from black hair to platinum blonde. Anyway, I recommend that before going platinum blonde, your hair must have a 1 year period without applying hair color or hair rebonding. Virgin hair is a must. This is to make sure that your hair won't fall off or be damaged irreversibly after the bleaching process. Hair bleaching will cause serious damage to your hair if it's done incorrectly. Since I'm residing in the Philippines, Olaplex (brand) is not readily available everywhere unless you're living in Manila or you have some relatives abroad to send you this product. Olaplex is a bond multiplier that actually links broken disulfide bonds in the hair allowing you to restore the strength and integrity of the hair. It can be used as an add on in the color process to prevent damage and also with relaxers, perms, or as a stand alone treatment to give your hair some extra love.

Now, let's start talking about the first process. Before bleaching, you must not wash your hair 2 days prior the bleaching session. Also, don't forget to make a skin test before bleaching to make sure you don't have any allergic reaction to hair bleach. You don't want to have a patchy hair right?

I've also read somewhere that it's better to apply virgin coconut oil to your hair 1 to 2 hours before bleaching. Coconut oil will also help the bleach glide easily to your hair.

On the day of bleaching your hair, the following things must be on hand.

  1. A tub of hair bleach powder or liquid (available in HBC)
  2. A large bottle of 12% oxidizing lotion (if using a bleach powder)
  3. Hair clips
  4. Hair color brush applicator
  5. Plastic mixing bowl
  6. Gloves
  7. Shower cap or cling wrap or large plastic shopping bag
  8. Old Shirt
  9. Ear caps or anything to protect your ear (use cling wrap instead)
  10. Old towel
  11. Hair spray bottle with water (to rinse off bleach from skin)
  12. Foil (optional)
  13. Hair mask or Deep conditioner 
  14. Shampoo
  15. Virgin coconut oil
  16. A helping hand or Assistant (It's difficult to do it alone)
Step 1: Section hair into 4 parts. Hair must be dry. 
Step 2: Mix the hair bleach with oxidizing lotion until you achieve the cake batter consistency. If you use the liquid bleach, skip this step.
Step 3: Always protect your hands with gloves, the ears with ear caps or cling wrap. Never forget to protect the neck area with an old towel or a cling wrap because bleach burns your skin and can cause serious allergic reactions to sensitive skins.
Step 4: Start at the bottom section of the hair before going up to the front. Apply immediately the bleach to the hair by taking thin sections and leaving an inch from the roots. The reason behind this is the roots is very near to the scalp and the heat from the scalp will make the bleaching process faster. You may or may not use foil to section hair. But in my case, I didn't use foil because I hate the sound of tin foil (it makes my teeth grit).
Step 5: Leave the bleach to your hair for about 30 to 40 minutes while covering it with a shower cap, cling wrap or plastic bag. The heat will make the process go faster. Always check your hair's elasticity or condition and be aware all the time because you might over processed and fry your hair. (This will lead to hair breakage)
Step 6: Do not leave the bleach from drying out to your hair. If this happens, apply oxidizing lotion to the area by using the hair brush applicator. 
Step 7: Rinse the hair with water first to wash away the bleach then shampoo and apply conditioner when done  if your hair have  lifted 3x your original hair color or you've reached the color orange or brassy color.
Step 8: Towel dry and apply a lot of hair serum to your hair since bleaching strips off your hair's natural oils.

CONGRATULATIONS! You have just completed the FIRST STAGE  to platinum hair.

Enjoy your hair for about 1 to 2 weeks before going to the second hair bleaching process. By this week, do not wash your hair everyday. If you can't avoid washing your hair, do not use shampoo for this will make your hair dry and brittle. Use hair mask or any hair treatment during this rest period. Also, refrain from using heat generating hair tools like hair iron and permer.

These are the photos of my hair during this stage. I feel like I'm Cersei Lannister when I look at myself in the mirror. Hey! I'm not talking about my face, I'm talking about my hair. LOL!

after 1 one week or 2 two rest period from hair bleaching sexyfoosa

Again, 2 days prior bleaching your hair, do not wash it and apply virgin coconut oil 1 to 2 hours before hair bleaching.

The things you will need are still the same except for 1 thing. In this process, instead of using 12% oxidizing lotion, use a lower percent this time. Buy a 6% or 9% oxidizing lotion. Do not use 12% anymore because it will break your hair and trust me since I did it on some part of my hair. 
I test a part of my hair using 12% oxidizing lotion on my second bleaching process and you'll see that at the side part of my ears, my hair broke off  and it looks like I've shaved that part. If you don't want this to happen to you, don't cha evah! bleach it using 12% again or you'll go bald. LOL! 
Anyway, the bleaching process is still the same like what you did 1 or 2 weeks ago. Just always check your hair during the bleaching session for signs of overprocessing like (a clump of hair fell off). In this case, immediately wash your hair but don't be afraid, it will not happen to you if you're just attentive to it. 20 to 30 minutes processing is enough. Do not go beyond 1 hour in this 2nd session.

After rinsing the bleach off, your hair must be really blonde right now and the orange or brassy color has finally turned to light yellow or in some case close to white hair. 
Looking at the chart above, my hair is finally close to yellow/platinum. You may or may not proceed to the 3rd stage 'coz the result is pretty amazing already. In my case, I didn't proceed to 3rd stage anymore which is applying a WHITE hair color. I noticed that I hate the sight of my black roots coming out after 3 weeks from my 2nd bleaching process and decided not to color it to white anymore and choose a color closer to my roots color instead. It's really up to you to go over and bleach your roots every 4 weeks and I don't want to do it anymore 'coz my hair has gone desert dry.
CONGRATULATIONS! You are now 1 step away from achieving that perfect platinum blonde.

Have a 2 weeks or 1 month break before going to the 3rd and last process. Again, do not shampoo your hair regularly and only use conditioner and hair mask when washing hair. Also refrain from using heat generating hair tools and always apply hair serum 'coz your hair will tend to be very dry because bleaching strips off your hair's natural oil.

NOTE: You may or may not go beyond the 3rd process anymore because the second bleaching process is pretty light already. Do it at your own risk. 
The last step is just to buy a white or platinum blonde hair color and use a 6% oxidizing lotion or if your hair color comes with an oxidizing lotion, just use what's included in the box.
This is the brand I use to my boyfriend's hair. This contains ammonia so it's cheaper. If you're allergic to ammonia, don't use this brand. It's better to buy the Manic Panic white or platinum blonde hair color. 
You may use any brand of hair color you want like L'oreal, Revlon, Garnier, etc. as long as the color is lighter than your bleached hair to achieved that platinum blonde.

By the way, your hair must be dry before applying the hair color and just follow the instructions in the pack. Rinse it off when done, deep condition, and style the way you want.

YOU are now officially an Asian with a Platinum blonde hair.

Note: I applied the WHITE hair color to my boyfriend only and not on my hair 'coz I'm planning to color my hair into Silver Ash instead which I will post a photo below. 


This is a video of me bleaching my boyfriend's hair for the 2nd time before applying the white hair color. You may color your hair after you bleach it for the 2nd time. You may or may not have a rest period before proceeding to the third step.

Anyway, this is what I did to my hair instead of coloring it WHITE. In my third stage, I choose silver ash instead 'coz I don't want to bleach my hair anymore if my roots grow.
Good thing I didn't use White color 'coz I think I love the Silver Ash  better and I don't have to really worry about my roots growing up 'coz Silver Ash hair is better blended with black later on compared to platinum blonde blended with black roots.

My Summertime Playlist (2015)

at 4/11/2015 0 comments
Yes! It's finally summer here in the Philippines and I can finally feel the Amihan wind. I don't have any vacation plans for this summer 'coz I'll be focusing on my blog and advance reading. I like to read when I'm just enjoying what I read and not for the sake of being pressured by our law professors. I'll be back to painting and DIY too and been thinking of changing my looks so I can surprise my friends when the school starts. I want to look different next school year for hopefully it will be my last year in law school. I need to enjoy this year and start taking things to the serious level for I will be having review classes already and I'm pretty sure I'll be bombarded with lots of school problems. By the way, my birthday is coming up and I still can't decide what to do in that day. I'm thinking of giving back to the community like feeding street children...or something like that..I'm not making it a promise yet 'coz I hate it when I can't keep my promises. Anyway, have fun listening to my summer playlist and tell me what you think about it by commenting below. Anything to add on? Just write it below. Thanks!!! xoxo Zhang
