How To Prevent That Dreaded Hat Hair

Hat Hair Before and After

There are two reasons why I rarely wear hats.

  1. I have an unusually large head and hats rarely fit me. Most hats can barely fit the top of my head let alone sit on it. There’s usually a lot of space sitting between my head and the hat.
  2. For the hats that do fit me, I hate hat hair.

So, what is hat hair? You know that flat, hair-plastered-to-the-head situation each time you remove your hat or helmet? Yes, that’s hat hair. More often than not, my sideswept fringe would be so flat, it would look as though I’ve run hair gel on it just so it’s flat against my scalp. I get that with beanies too.

It’s not a good look, people. Not a good look at all.

Beauty Tip: Get Yourself Some Mini Cotton Buds!

Mini Cotton Buds

Why have I not seen nor try these out before?!

If you have access to a MUJI store near you, you have to check out their mini cotton buds. They’re the same length as any normal cotton buds (or cotton tips as some of you may call it) but they’re about half the width of a normal cotton bud.

Let’s get started with the List, shall we?

Let Your Skin Sleep Well With Puretopia’s Sleep and Renew Night Face Moisturiser

Puretopia Sleep and Renew Night Face Moisturiser

I don’t normally use or talk about a lot of “natural” skincare on the blog because unfortunately, most of them don’t really work for me. I use quotes in “natural” because a lot of the skincare products that claim to be natural aren’t really natural. Hmm, tell you what, I’ll just use the term “plant-based” skincare instead, how’s that? You’ll know what I mean when I say natural then when I really mean they’re plant-based products.

The reason most of them don’t really work for me is that they’re often too rich for my skin. I currently tried one out from a popular skincare brand (I won’t mention what it is now but you’ll know soon enough) and, I kid you not, each time I used it, I broke out. I’ve also tried skincare from another more popular natural skincare brand and as much as people rave about it, I just couldn’t get their products to work on my skin. In the end, I gave up.
