CGM Update: 10th Month! (SELFIES! SARREH NA)

By Tin Gallemaso - 7:39:00 PM

SARREH NA AGAD TALAGA. HAHAHAHA!
Pano kasi mapapakita 'yung hair kung wala akong face, diba? 


Right pic was taken a day after my fourth haircut in a span of ten months. 

Impulsive haircut last July link: here.

Hindi talaga ko natatahimik kapag may gusto ako. Pansin mo? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
Walang makakapigil eh. I wasn't satisfied with my last haircut because I wanted my hair to be layered so I waited seven weeks and had it cut again. HAHAHA! My friend who's also a member of the group because her daughter has curly hair keeps on telling me, "Tin, kalmahan mo lang. Baka sumobra sa iksi." Alam niyang mapilit ako kapag may nagustuhan/na-tripan as in ginagawa ko talaga kahit ano mangyari. πŸ˜… Kaya di na raw siya nagulat nung nagsabi akong pinabawasan ko na naman. Kahit na umiksi ng sobra basta gusto ko pa magpagupit, ganon. HAHAHA. Lang hiya. Pinipigilan ko naman 'yan, pasaway at impulsive lang kasi madalas🀦🏻‍♀️


Anyway,


November 2019 and September 2020

Shemay, one year na since nagkita kami ng BB ko na naging dahilan bakit ako nawalan ng budget pang rebond.

I started this CGM journey without an idea on how my hair would look like several months down the road. Never did I imagine that I'd have this kind of curl pattern on some days. I just wanted my hair to be healthy so I can finally stop the rebond treatment that I do annually. Ang galing kasi masaya na ko kahit wavy lang pero curly siya on some days. Tapos maganda 'yung suggestion nila na i-document ang hair everyday para makita 'yung improvement. 


Si Dora na naka-lipstick ka ba, ghurl? Kaya ka lumaking lakwatsera eh. Hahaha!

I don't have a curly/wavy hair growing up. My hair was naturally straight and jet black. My hair was beautiful (in my memory HAHAHA!) but I got curious about the salon treatments and different hairstyles and that was the start of the damages that my hair had experienced for maybe around 15 years now. I'll look for photos from third grade and I'll post it in November for my first "curlversary." 

All of the products above are CGA.
You may not know the terms if you're not familiar with CGM.

Co-wash - Johnson's Active Kids Conditioner (Protein)
Low Poo - HHN Mandarin Shampoo (Protein Free)
S2C - Suave's Cherry Blossom or Waterfall Mist (Protein Free)
Deep Con - Keraplus (Protein) I hope they manufacture a bigger size.
Leave On - HHN Vanilla Conditioner (Protein Free)

I don't use stylers 'cause I find them sticky. I rinse all the products after S2C and I apply a little bit of HHN Vanilla Conditioner mixed with water as a leave on after wet plopping. CGM can be thrifty or expensive depending on your budget. Some people use less products, some use more. Sa'kin, mas matipid especially sa conditioner kasi 'yang ganyan kalaking Suave (Cherry Blossom) ay 189php lang pero more than a month kong gamit, 'yung isa naman nabili ko ng 89php. Unlike before lalo nung mahaba buhok ko parang 200php sa Cream Silk conditioner per week. HHN na 'yung shampoo na gamit ko kahit nung hindi pa ko naka-CGM pero 'yung strengthening variant nga lang nila dati kasi madaming hairfall. 


First day after my layered haircut.
Gulat na gulat?! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Every wash day is a surprise since I joined Curly Girls Philippines. I'm not strict with the way my hair is styled - s2c, wet plopping and air-dry lagi lang. I used to be so cautious with the steps but that didn't even lasted a month. 

Routines like this are supposed to be fun not stressful. Kaya parang ang tagal ng progress ko kasi minsan katamad pa rin na pati s2c e hindi ko ginagawa pero keri lang, meron pa rin naman progress kahit di talaga ko nakakasunod lagi sa tamang process. Nakakapagod 'yung sobrang effort saka nagluluto ako kaya madalas pa rin akong nakatali. 'Yun na 'yon. Hahaha!  Basta sa products, CGA naman lagi. Sa unan at pang tali ng buhok, satin.


My hair is still damp in the picture above. I initially thought that it won't be a curly hair day for me but as soon as it completely dried, good hair day pala. 


Shrinkage is real.
I'm satisfied with the way it looks, 'yung nasa baba lang ang curls/waves. Kakagulat pa rin na ganyan itsura ngayon kasi ang alam ko, hindi naman ako curly pero magrereklamo pa ba? ❤️


On a good hair day, some people think that I use hot tools or had it permed at a salon pero hindi pooooo, that's just the way my hair air-dried. Iba- iba siya everyday 🀦🏻‍♀️ Katuwa nga 'tong CGM kasi it taught me to appreciate my hair and all the frizz that comes with it. Concern ko dati was malaki na mukha ko tapos malaki pa buhok pero lampake na, besh. hahahaha. Big hair, don't care.


Totoo na bago mo problemahin 'yung curl pattern e intindihin muna 'yung health ng hair. Trust the process. ❤️


HAHAHAHAHA! Akalain mo may hugot pa pala para sa mga may short hair.
OO NGA NAMAN KASI. SHORT HAIR AKO PALA. 
Last haircut na muna 'to, magpapahaba na.
Or isa pa ata ulit na haircut. NYAHAHAHA. 


I've been going out again since July and this is how I look usually.
Sabi kasi ni Doc (The Skin Sensei at Twitter), tie hair and don't wear dangling earrings muna para ma-lessen 'yung pwedeng kapitan ng virus. Kaya ayan. haha! Aba, masunurin naman pala 'to. ☺️ I also bought satin facemasks because I read somewhere that it lessens the irritation (maskne) and so far, I think it helped pero meron pa rin sa chin area ko na tumutubo everytime matagal naka-face mask. Okay lang 'yon though, mas mahirap pala 'yung faceshield kasi ang sakit sa ulo.


Another CGM Update:


Not a lot of people would be able to relate why seeing my hair improve because of CGM is a big deal to me and to the other ladies who are members of the group as well. There's a kilig feeling in learning to love and accept your insecurities. I hated my natural hair before especially whenever people tell me "Mahangin ba sa labas?" or "Pugad ng ibon ba buhok mo?" Sobrang kapal, haba at buhaghag kaya ang laki-laki tignan. Ngayon, work that hair volume, sis! πŸ˜‚ Maganda naman kasi. I'm a silent reader in CGP at dito lang ako naga-update pero I'm thankful for that group. Nakaka-empower 'yung level ng suporta. πŸ₯°


It's okay to be unique. ❤️
It's beautiful to be different. ❤️
It's okay not to be okay. ❤️
Yes, kim soo hyun? HAHAHAHA CHAR. Gusto mo 'yon? Naisingit ko pa. πŸ˜‚



I didn't spend a lot of time taking care of my hair. Hence, the annual rebond para isang treatment na lang tapos good hair days ng matagal. πŸ˜‚ Pero ngayon, there's a newly found appreciation even if it doesn't look perfect. Actually, appreciation for everything that is unique in me. Pero di ko itatanggi na lampake kasi at mas confident ako ngayon kaya nasasabi ko 'to. 

Comment pa sila na mukha kong sabog kahit obvious na para pasabugin ko rin nguso nila.

HAHAHAHA. WAR FREAK PALA.
