Review: DOVE Oxygen & Nourishment Shampoo and Conditioner

It’s starting to rain cats and dogs these days so summer is officially over in the Philippines! And you know what that means.. Change in weather means change in hair and skin care regimen! The humidity has been making the top part of my hair really flat and oily so I went back to using Dove Oxygen & Nourishment shampoo and conditioner. I’ve tried it out way before it was launched in our local market. I got intrigued by its transparent packaging in the US plus it promises more volume after one use so I had someone bring it home for me.Read more

The Haircut That Changed My Life | Creations Salon by Lourd Ramos

Right before I turned a year older this year, I told myself that I would make a drastic change to my look. I was going to either bleach it or color it black just like last year but I decided not to dye my hair until next year so I opted to cut it short. I didn’t realize that my hair was already mermaid-long until I ironed it straight for an event last October. As much as I’d like to say I maintain my hair well and keep it healthy, the over-dyed parts on the end were already weighing myRead more
