Bangs Cut Supporter: A quick and easy life saver tool for fringe trimming

When I had my fringe chopped off a few weeks ago, many people were shocked and asked why the change because I have had the same hairstyle for ages. I’m a well-organized person and I like to plan for everything but I can get very random at times, which I think is important to change the rules a little, taking a step back and enjoy what life is all about. Living it!

Let me tell you a secret. The reason why I chopped off my fringe was because I saw this Bangs Cut Supporter at Mr. DIY. Immediately I thought I could easily do the first cut at home and then do follow-up trimming at home whenever needed.

So as I said earlier, I assume that I would be able to do the first fringe cut at home easily with this tool. I don’t think it will be hard but I was afraid. After all it’s the first cut. I wouldn’t want to mess up and having to live with badly cut fringe for a few weeks 😀 . So I went to a hair salon. Honestly speaking, I don’t think so the salon did a good job either. I hated my fringe for the first two weeks. When the hair started to grow out and I was heading to Penang, I had them comb to the side again as I knew I would get all sweaty in Penang. On the same night I was back to KL, I took out this Bangs Cut Supporter to trim my fringe.

Batiste Dry Shampoo #Blush: A quick and easy fix for greasy scalp

When everyone was buying and ordering Bioderma from oversea, I decided to sit around and wait for the brand to be brought in to Malaysia. I always believe somebody or some company would be following the hype. So when Batiste Dry Shampoo was a “hot” product, I did the same. I sit and wait. Guess what? A few months down the road and a company brought the brand in!

I’m so glad I waited because the cheapest I’ve seen from online store is around RM35 per can and I bought it straight from Aeon Big Alamanda Putrajaya for just RM24.90. Good things come to those who wait eh? There are a few supermarket that carry Batiste Dry Shampoo. You can get it from Village Grocer, Jaya Grocer, Presto Grocer (the few I know) and if all the location is out of your reach like my case, just go to Aeon Big. I went to a standalone Aeon Big but they don’t carry Batiste so I figure I might get it easier from an Aeon Big located in a mall. So I drove to Aeon Big Alamanda Putrajaya and found it.

Hair Tutorial: Cute and Simple Side Braided Bun

A year ago I stumbled upon a Youtube video on this simple, cute side braided bun and I’ve been doing the hair style since. I must admit, having all your hair up in a bun is not a favourite here because you could risk looking like an “auntie”. The last time I had my hair up in a bun is during my ballet classes 😀 . Boy it was a competition on who have the neatest and nicest hair bun of all!

I’ve seen some stylish girls doing it and it actually looks good. The key to this look is to put on jewellery, pairing the look with modern attire such as dresses and don’t forget the makeup 🙂 . For this side branded bun hair tutorial, I’ve only put on a light makeup as I was in a hurry. Hope you like this hair-do!

Hair Tutorial: Wrap-Around Half Do with Kérastase Couture Styling

If you’re my Instagram or Facebook page follower you’ll definitely remember this wrap-around half do which I shared a few months ago. I know I know, I promised you a hair tutorial on this hair-do. It took me this long to finally do it because of two reason. (1) This auntie have totally forgotten about it as usual lol and (2) I haven’t figure out how to take photo of my head from the back.

I’ve been toying around with some styling products from Kérastase Couture Styling range and recreating this wrap-around half do. Let me tell ya’ recreating this hair-do is not easy at all but here is the tutorial as promised 😀

The first time I tried doing this wrap-around half do is in the office. That time I’m equipped with just a comb, a few hair tie, a few bobby pin, a can of hair spray and I nailed it on first try. Not only recreating the same hair-do is difficult, I also face with the shooting challenge as well. My bigger camera is once again sent to the service centre so I have no choice but to use a smaller camera. Some photos may be a bit blurry as I can’t see the camera screen at all. I think you get what I mean 🙂

Review: My Secret to a Wavy Bouncy Hair with Lucidol-L Designing Pump Hair Jelly (Bouncy Wave)

Reader Joey recently emailed me asking about what styling product I’m using for my hair. I’ve gone through 5 bottles of it and Joey’s email reminded me to review it.

Everyone who had their hair perm before will tell you that it takes time and effort to maintain it. I don’t agree. It takes me just less than 5 minutes to style my hair and in today’s review I’m going to reveal to you my secret and that includes how I do it in a fast and easy way.

Oh just so you know..I don’t wake up with this hair. I woke up with loose and fluffy hair. How do I ended up with this hair?


The secret weapon is this. Lucidol-L Designing Pump Hair Jelly (Bouncy Wave) which I bought from Watsons for RM16.50. There’s a few type for you to choose. I like my hair to have that dry-look and wavy so I chose Bouncy Wave. I don’t like my hair to look wet like how other styling product gives you. At the beginning I only bought this to try. If it gives me that wet look then I need to ditch it and hunt for a new product again. Little that I know this is exactly what I was looking for.

After I wash my hair every night, I’ll just apply this product by section to my damp hair and air-dry. Of course it’ll look nice but it’s not going to be so after you wakes up the next morning.

Review: Liese Designing Jelly II Swing Wave

A while ago I bought 2 scrunchies to hold the curls on my hair when I sleep. The curl turns out to be gorgeous but does not last at all on my hair as I have long, straight and soft hair. Sad to say the curl was gone in less than 30 minutes! Since I was a kid till err now? my hair is stubbornly straight + smooth and my mum doesn’t seem to be successful in plating my hair. If I want to tong or curl my hair, I need not to waste the time. I just need to go for permanent hair perming which I can’t stand. So I decided to pick up Liese Designing Jelly in #II Swing Wave with a slight hope this can hold my hair till end of the day. Choosing this was a painful experience too as they have I, II, III and IV. Each have a different name which is very misleading as there’s also another advise to pick up accordingly to the strongness you want. After wasting so much time deciding I picked up #II Swing Wave simply because it’s for creating wavy hair.

Liese Designing Jelly II Swing Wave retailing at RM28.80. Can’t remember this is original price or after discount.

I agree on the tagline “No sticky wax feeling or stiff gel look”. It really doesn’t!

Back of the packaging.

The bottle is cute!

Especially the cap. You can see the cap resemble a rose and cute lil butterflies around the cap.

Pump works great but sometimes could over dispense the content out if we press too hard.

The content is transparent in colour. Smells nice and the smell is exactly the same with Lucidol product.

Tadaaa! This is the result of using the product while sleeping haha. Step by step on how to create a wavy hair on later post.

The only thing I regret is not getting #III or #IV. Should have gotten stronger ones.
