I got a haircut yesterday~

I went to the hair salon last night for scalp treatment and a little trim~


Scalp Treatment Backstory + My Feelings About It:

Let me just say, I’m done with wigs. I thought they’d be a good alternative for dying and perming my hair, but they have damaged my scalp so, so badly. I had stopped wearing them so often, and only wore them on weekends, but it didn’t get any better. I’ve got flakes blocking my pores so my hair can’t grow and it just falls out instead. ToT

Anyways, I went to Juno and got scalp treatment, which cost 80,000KRW. Scaling itself—which consists of dipping a q-tip into some liquid and rubbing that on your scalp—costs 60,000KRW. (Can you hear my disappointment?) I had actually gotten scaling done just last week at some small salon, but judging by the before photos they took yesterday, it made no difference….only to find that Juno’s mega expensive scalp treatment was practically the same as what the ajumma did to me last week.

I know Juno is recommended online for foreign hair and stuff, but my college-aged Korean friends don't like Juno. They say it's super overpriced and their friend also had a dyeing mishap (the man dyed her neck black).

So in short, I was a little disappointed with the treatment. I don’t think I’ll continue getting it every month. 80,000KRW can pay all my bills! For that money I’ll just get a shampoo and try it on my own~ And if it really doesn’t work, I’ll go to a dermatologist, not a hair salon.



But I like the haircut, at least! :D She trimmed my bangs and ends. Does it make me look younger? I hope so >.< I feel like short hair is risky--it either makes me look young or middle-aged. >.<



^ Like here, I think I look middle-aged… ㅜㅜ




^Oh~ This filter is interesting~~ I like it, heehee~


So all in all, I’ve decided to just don a bob for a few months. No more wigs, just real hair! That’s what normal people do anyways, right? People that don’t wear wigs just commit to a hairstyle until it grows out?

    2. Lol I'm pretty the same as you, just in my case my color is black, and my hair are not really weak though quite strong but it takes a long time to grow~

      This tips I got from Get it Beauty Show, to wash your scalp (not hair) twice, I mean like, when you taking shower, take appropriate amount of shampoo ( I recommend a coin size or less, don't wasting! ^^), rub and massage your scalp with the shampoo, your scalp ^^ not hair!

      Then don't wash, take another amount of shampoo then rub and massage again your scalp with it, it can make a luxurious and dense foam to help clean and expedite blood circulation by massaging, so your hair will grow faster ^^ and cleansing with this method will prevent any dead skin cells blocking your pores so hair will grow easily ^^, remember doing twice in row ^^

      also don't forget to dry your scalp and hair before sleep, because leaving scalp in humid condition will turn your hair into sensitive type, because humidity will cause bacterial multiply ^^

      Hope this help ya ^^, I already doing this into myself, and I really like the result ^^ no wasting of shampoo and having a clean and problem free hair ^^.

    1. Yay~ Thank you! Yes, omg the price!! T_T Whoever said Korea is cheap is wrong! :( Some things are cheaper than America, but given the lower salary and the higher expenses in other areas, it kinda averages out overall....

VERY PRETTY hair cut it makes you look a lot younger !!you look like a school girl :)That hair treatment is very expensive I know of a DIY treatment for flaking scalp and falling hair my mom had this problem and she used it , it worked for her, her hair stopped falling and had more volume I hope it will work for you too,take castor oil and coconut oil in equal proportions mix then well and massage on your scalp and hair leave it for at least half an hour then wash off with a shampoo ( my mom uses Dove hair fall rescue shampoo and conditioner) do this twice a week within a month you will notice the difference :)

  11. Aaaw you look like a doll~~~~
    So so so pretty!

  12. Oh my gosh you look adorable! I love your haircut, it makes you look like a doll. I want bangs like yours~ > < My mom cuts my hair at home, and although she's a decent trimmer, she's terrible at bangs. I would go to a salon to do it, but they prices they charge are ridiculous sometimes.

    I hope your scalp gets better! I actually can't tell your hair/scalp looks bad at all, your hair looks so soft ^^ I hate my hair cause it's so thick > < It makes my friends crazy that I don't have any split ends (the only good thing about my hair), one of them spent literally 5 minutes trying to find one and didn't succeed.

    1. Thank you Gloria! >3< Oh, don't worry! My bangs are very simply cut, actually! It was all in the blowdrying to get them to look like that! They actually look pretty frumpy and disheveled without any styling done. ><
      Oh, I feel your pain...My dad insisted to chop our hair off too. That's when I learned to cut my hair myself! Say, I saw Tsubasa do a tutorial on cutting bangs on youtube~ Perhaps you could try to do your bangs yourself then! I bet you've more style sense than your mom at that kinda thing~ ^^

      And haha, how can you tell that my hair is soft? :o It is! Though not because it's well-conditioned, but because it's fine~ I have the total opposite of your hair! Mine is thin, yours is thick~ I think thick hair is the better extreme though! With thick hair you can always layer it, but thin hair has its limits. And when it comes to adorable hairstyles and curls, you have more to work with! And again, you can layer it! :D

  13. You look soooo cute with that hair style! ^_^
    And don't worry about your natural hair! It will all go back to normal in no time, just as long as you give it some air. ^_^ Skin regenerates pretty quickly on its own, so I'm sure that there will be no more problems in the future! :)
    You always look lovely, with or without a wig! ^_^

  21. Why did wigs mess up your scalp? :( I have a flaky scalp as it is and I've been considering a scalp treatment for a little while.

    1. Hmmm...ultimately I think it was that my scalp couldn't really breathe well. I started off wearing them frequently, and then that went up to a daily basis. Imagine having your hair pressed flat and covered by a stuffy wig for days straight...
      I ended up getting bad dandruff, my hair fell out upon touching it, and I had buildup on my scalp. The hair people said I should stop wearing wigs for 7 months. The ajumma lady (not sure how trustable she is) also said that wigs were scratching my scalp.

      So just don't wear them on a daily basis, and if you do wear them frequently, take care of your scalp well in between!
