I've long contemplated what to do with my long locks.  Should I cut it short?  Should I chop my full bangs again?  Should I have it rebonded again at my suking neighborhood hairstylist?  Should I go for curls this time?  Should I color it with a lighter shade of brown bordering to medium blond?  Aha!  You could tell that I am getting bored with the long hair which I've been sporting since 2006.  See different styles of hair I tried in the photos below:

Rebonded - Side Bangs
Wash n' Wear Straight Hair - Full Bangs - Ponytail
LONG HAIR MYTHS
Having a long hair does make one more beautiful and more attractive, according to hubby.  For me, it depends on the face shape of the person.  That's why I think he will be the first person to give me a violent reaction if I say I want to cut it short.

Having a long hair is quite high in maintenance.  Some say it's more expensive to maintain it because you use more shampoo and conditioner. That could be partly true.  In my case, I use just a sachet of shampoo (every two days) and once sachet of conditioner everyday.  I buy shampoos and conditioners in sachets because it's measured in just the right amount when we consume it.

LHBS - What?
So now, this brings me back to my Long-Hair-Boredom-Syndrome (LHBS).  What to do with my thick long locks?  I would want to have it rebonded again so I don't have to trouble myself keeping it silky straight.  But there are times I feel the flirty vibe (sa hair lang ha!) and I braid it to achieve a curly/wavy effect when it's loose.  I don't want to perm it digitally because I find it really expensive and hence not practical.

The solution?  Not do anything about it.  Yes, I decided not to have it treated or cut or permed.  But to ease my LHBS, I used a quality 2-in-1 (straightener and curler) hair tool.  It's a gift from Tough Mama last Christmas.  I was ecstatic with the result when I tried curling my hair the first time.  I received compliments from family and friends.  Here are some hair and face tight shots aka #SELVIES (madaming #SELFIE haha!) to show you my flirty waves.

Diba?  Ang BONGGA at ang gara!  Macky was speechless after seeing my curls and simple made up face.  Sana raw ganito araw araw!  lol!  Secret lang ha, he even made one of the photos above his phone's screensaver.

Here's what I used for this hairstyle: Tough Mama 2-in-1 Hair Beauty Set (Straightener and Curler)

It took me less than 30 minutes to curl my long locks.  So I said to myself, it's doable to go to work with this hairstyle (if I'm not rushing in the morning though!).  I don't need to have it digitally permed nor rebonded because I can have both hairstyles in this hair tool.  It's practical because it costs 10th of a digital perm treatment from a reputable salon or a third of a rebond treatment.

This 2014, I plan to keep my hair as low maintenance as possible.  I am okay with wash and go, wash and blow dry, wash and pony tail or up in a bun.  Should I need to go to a special occasion or have a gig, I could style my hair using this Tough Mama 2-in-1 Beauty Set!  Thanks again  to Nikon Home Appliances - Tough Mama for this Christmas gift.  Such a Long-Hair-Boredom-Syndrome saver! :)
