Introduce yourself, what do you do?
Hi guys! I’ll introduce myself before I throw all my hair issues and tips at you and you’re like; who’s that girl? My name is Amanda, 22 years old and I’m living in Holland. I love to write short story’s on my blog about fashion and personal opinions. I work as an Visual Merchandiser at the moment. I love to style outfits and make crazy combinations that you normally wouldn’t think of. That’s what makes fashion interesting.
What is your all time favor hairstyle?
As much as I love to do crazy outfits, I love to try some crazy hairstyles to. Just because it’s a fun thing to do and when it’s ugly, it will grow back or you can dye it in an other color. So why wouldn’t you try that pastel shade? That is what I was thinking when I dyed my hair a purple/pink shade. I’m in love with it! Unfortunately the color
fades way to fast even with my ‘3 days wash’ rule.
Do you have a hair routine?
I’m a lazy person when it comes to hairstyle. Sometimes I try an other look and make curls the in tire morning to see it fade away in half an hour. A lot of work for nothing.. My hair is just to straight to make it last. When I was younger I washed my hair every day because I tough my hair would be more healthy and perfect. But that was a big mistake! A friend with perfect thick and shiny hair told me that she washed her hair 3 times in a week on Monday, Thursday and Sunday. At the beginning it will be a little oily because your hair got used to the everyday wash. You have to go trough the oily hair the first week and make a lot of ponytails or messy buns. You can also use dry shampoo to make it look less greasy. But after all the oily hair survival you will see the result!
Your hair will be thicker and less oily and have a natural healthy shine! This was the best hair routine change I’ve ever made in my life. Ok, that sounds like hair is my whole life… But trust me! You will be so happy you made this change. And for me as a lazy hair person; you’ll save time doing the ‘3 days rule’.
After I wash my hair I let it dry naturally as long as possible. After it’s almost dry I use a hairdryer with a round brush to make it more straight and remove all the weird baby curls in the back. After that I use ‘Goldwell Kerasilk Reconstruct’ to control the fluff. Then I use ‘Schwarzkopf Junior hairspray extra strong’ so everything stays in place.
What are your 3 top hair care tips?
At least I’ll share my hair tips with you. Here they are:
1. Wash your hair 3 times a week (3 days rule!)
2. Try to use as less heath as possible on your hair
3. And if you want to curl or straight your hair, always protect with a good heath protection spray!
Describe yourself in five words?
Hmm that’s a difficult one for me. I think I’m a easy going person with a free mind and not scared to do what I want and try different crazy things. Are that 5 words already? No? Hmm.. I’m a little shy at first and I don’t like to be in the center of attention. But when you get to know me better, get ready for some crazy shit. I think it’s 5 words now? Or a short story with 5 words.. Whatever.
What helps give you inspiration/motivation?
I get inspired by travelling and see all the different styles and people in other city’s or country’s. How they dress, how they act and how they drink their coffee with a crazy cool bag that don’t match with any of what they are wearing. I specially love Paris, the vibe and the people who love to dress different, I wish they dress more like that in Holland.
What are the top three things on your bucket list?
The top 3 things on my bucket list? That’s easy! I think about new things to do every day. I love to try new things! So here is my list;
1. Go back to Thailand for a month, because I felt so free and happy when I was there a few years ago. I want to feel that again and share this feeling with the love of my life.
2. Buy a Chanel bag ( this one will probably never happen because I spend all my money on food and clothes)
3. Start my own business
What made you laugh this week?
What made me laugh this week? I laugh so much I can’t even remember what was the best moment.. But yesterday I went to the party of my favorite fashion gay couple , I love them! , and I almost laughed the whole night, they are hilarious. Especially the story about one of them always walked around like a flamingo when he was 5 years old. And while he was telling this story he did the flamingo walk again! Haha love them!
