When to give up long locks - Sweet Bunny

I just snipped off my long locks of hair... Are you crazy you are getting married next year, what a waste! Was my colleague’s reaction at work..

Well ... I rather have healthy hair then long damaged, filled with split ends ... Earlier on this year, I was a hair model for my friend's hair styling exam and assisted with perming and rebonding my hair within a week, not advised highly damaging but totally worth it because my friend passed with flying colours.

The health of your hair affects its radiance so look out for these tell tales signs for unhealthy hair which requires trimming:

Knotted and tangled hair - While brushing your hair if you noticed many knots and tangles, it is time to go for a trim, instead of using a comb to forcefully unknot and detangle your hair which may cause breakage to the hair.

Get rid of split ends – split ends are never a pretty sight and worst they can break faster as the splits travel up the hair strands to the scalp, split hair appears translucent, weak and thin compared to regular healthy hair. Spite ends are easily detected because usually the tip of the hair has white bulbs on them. Hence snipping off these the ends could really salvage your hair.

When your hair is flat – Lack of volume and not the usual structure your hair usually is? Schedule a trim to give your hair that extra lively bounce.

If you frequently colour your hair – an indicator that your hair suffers from hair damage is the colour not being able to hold and fades, it loses its elasticity and easily snaps or breaks when wet. Highlighting and bleaching cause the most damage to the ends of your hair bearing in mind that the ends of your hair are the oldest part and the most fragile.

Heat damaged hair – Blow drying and styling of hair can cause heat damage from constant usage of hair irons and curlers contributing to lifeless hair. Having fizziness and static looking hair is also another indication to get a trim. Deep conditioning and limiting usage of hair iron and curlers helps prevents heat damage.

What if I do not want to trim my hair – You could always approach your stylist for treatments for your hair it helps but does not resolve split ends.

The length of my hair is now shorter but I am glad that it is to be bouncy, shiny and healthy before it was rigged with split ends with white bulbs appearing at the ends of my hair from heat damage. I do miss my long hair but the consolation is hair always grows back. So do head over to the salon to get that trim every few months? It also does wonders if your layered hair becomes uneven and untidy.

The Wedding Proposal In Singapore - Sam and I have known each other for about 3 years; we applied for a BTO together as well as started our wedding plans.

Proposing to a Girl - To my surprise, Sam desired to propose to me, not for the sake of formality but to show me his sincerity. Knowing that I am a feminist, he offers to plan my proposal with me, this may sound extremely unromantic but being a realist as well as not liking the idea of a man bending backwards to fulfil my every whim and fancy.

My Engagement Ring - I got to choose my own engagement ring; Sam knew that Forever Mark diamonds are of good quality and suggested that we go to a jewellery store to pick out one that I liked. It also saves us the trouble of resizing the ring and ensured that the design and cut were to my liking.

Our Wedding Proposal Venue - We instantaneously decided the venue should be at a Rabbitto cafe in Bangkok, our visit to the café last year left us with a lasting impression, we totally adore the cute fluffy critters, the rabbits were not aggressive, approachable and very curious. We are both born on the year of the rabbit also gave this venue more significance.

Our Wedding Proposal Photographer - Engaging a photographer was also on our list, we wanted to capture the magical moment when Sam asks for my hand in marriage. The idea was simply to get a reputable photographer overseas is no piece of cake, I searched online a couple months before our trip to Thailand for a good photographer, the language barrier was one of my main concerns as well.

I came across Natasha I Gillett’s webpage and was very impressed with her portfolio; she is a winner of several prestigious photographer awards. Contacting her was a breeze as she replies to her emails regularly. Booking a session with her has to be done in advance as she is very popular. A deposit was required and the transaction was fast and safe because it was done thru PayPal.

The Wedding Proposal Box - Sam bought me the most adorable ring box, engraved on the log-shaped wooden box was will you marry me, accompanied by 2 porcelain rabbits. They were perfect props for our engagement photoshoot. Sam also contacted the Café in advance to ask for permission to hold our photoshoot there as well as asked for the best time to be at the café when it is not crowded.

The Rabbit Wedding Proposal Photoshoot - The day arrived when Sam proposed, we arrived early at the café where the staff was very accommodating and helpful, they helped us pick the best rabbits for the photoshoot, those they would happily allow us to snuggle and carry them. The rabbits were very curious about Natasha’s DSLR camera and would pop up right next to her to see what she was doing. Natasha was wonderful; she is cheerful, patient and helpful, gently giving us directions on some poses and ideas of good photos, the peter rabbit themed café was simply decorated and small but she had a great eye for the best shots.
