Said good-bye to my supernova hair last Friday night.
My roots are orange because I only did a bleach bath so this is basically what my supernova hairs looks like mega-faded. I love it. I felt so giddy while rinsing out the bleach mixture and seeing the pastel, icy green the blues (Crazy Color Sky Blue and Crazy Color Peacock Blue) turned into.
A bleach bath (also known as a soap cap) is basically a gentler form of bleaching. You mix your bleach and developer with a bit of water and shampoo (double the amount of your bleach mixture). I only used half as much shampoo, though, because I fail at following instructions. You can use any kind of shampoo but I used a clarifying one from Suave. I threw it on over hair soaked in virgin coconut oil and left it in for 25 minutes (mostly because of my roots). For my next bleach baths, I’ll probably only leave it in for 15 minutes.
I went to Nuffnang and Mandaue Foam’s screening of The Bourne Legacy today! I liked it. The audience tittered and buzzed when Rachel Weisz said the magic word: Manila. I lightly punched Charles in excitement because we were late for the movie and I thought we had missed the bits that were shot in our country. This is a Big Deal, okay. Admittedly, watching the scenes shot in Manila was a bit funny because the places were unfamiliar, save for the Taft MRT footbridge (almost a decade living in Metro Manila and I’ve only been in that area once, heh).
I am in love with my denim jacket! I bought it at last Saturday’s Tumblr Fair from my friend, Robi. I wanted it the moment I saw it but it was originally selling for PHP499 and because I am a cheap ass, I said I’d just buy spikes and do it on one of my denim jackets. Half an hour before the fair ended, some girl wanted to buy it for PHP200-250 but Robi said the lowest he could go was PHP300. I snapped that shit up. The lace top is another favorite buy from Tumblr Fair; I got it from Chai‘s booth.
And here’s what my hair looks like without all dat shoopin’:
The mint green is only supposed to be temporary as I’m gradually bleach bathing my hair towards a different color (not really that hard to guess lol) but I KIND OF WANT TO KEEP IT! I cannot live with those roots, though!
