Who Is Your Hair Soul Sister? | Clozette


Our tresses are our crowning glory. Just as we are unique in our own ways, our hair also differs from others based on our lifestyle. And sometimes, interpreting our lifestyle can be of immense help when it comes to understanding the condition of our hair. This way, we’ll know exactly how to take care of it and make sure that it’s at its best.

Do you know who your hair soul sister is? Read on to find out.

The Beach Babe 




“Chill” is your favourite word. You look at life with rose-coloured lenses and you don’t let the little things weigh you down. You have such high energy for adventure and you’re always game to explore. The laid-back lifestyle includes your wardrobe, of course. Your style uniform? Denim shorts and a flowy top. A light dress with fun patterns is also a go-to. You love the beach, the mountains, anything that’s there to explore in nature. Under the sun is where you find most peace and fun.

The downside to that is your hair can tend to look dry and dull because of your many days soaking up the sun. Never let frizz get in the way of your carefree lifestyle by using a product that keeps your hair soft and smooth like the Pantene 3 Minute Miracle conditioner after you shampoo your hair.

The Multitasking Maven 




You’re the type of girl who can do it all — and you do, as much as you can. You’re a go-getter whose independence and determination is top-notch. You have such a strong drive for the things that interest you that you really put yourself one-hundred-percent for them — no matter how many these things may be. And as such, your schedule is always packed and you’re juggling a lot of things at the same time.

This, of course, leads to stress and stress-related problems, including hair loss and dandruff. So make sure you have all your bases covered and use hair products that cleanse and nourish your hair and scalp every day, like the Head & Shoulders Supreme series.

The Classic Beauty 




You’re the quintessential classic lady. A lover of things from the olden days, you like to keep things simple and elegant. You say no to fads and stick to the classics. You put quality on top of quantity all the time. You like things to be no-fuss, so you stick to what’s tried-and-true.

A blowdryer and a fine comb are all the tools you need in your hair arsenal. But things can get a wee bit boring and limp in the tresses because of that. Give your hair a bit more life by styling it differently from time to time. But don’t go overboard, of course. Make sure your hair is still protected by using the right styling products. Then give your hair a scented boost with the Rejoice Perfume series.

The Risk-Taker 




You dance to the beat of your own drum, and you’re bored by the conventional. You’re extremely creative, so you’re always on the lookout for something that excites your senses. You’re not one to keep your thoughts to yourself but you’re also not afraid to accept criticism and admit you’re wrong. You’re not afraid to take risks both in fashion and in beauty. So your wardrobe is a mix of fun and quirky.

Your hair has sported all the colours of the rainbow and more, leading to damaged tresses. Keep damage to a minimum with the help of hair care products that were specially formulated for that issue, like the Herbal Essences Daily Detox series to cleanse all impurities away.


The Social Butterfly 




You’re a busy social bee. It’s easy for you to make friends. You can be at a new place and end up being best friends with someone you just met. You’re not one to shy away from the limelight. You know who’s who and where the action is, and you don’t just appear on these occasions without a care. You take the saying “People are gonna stare, make it worth their while” to heart, so you put a premium on style.

There will be no stones left unturned, even your hair. You’re a stylista through and through, which makes your hair prone to being greasy because of the many products you use. Give your manes an at-home hair spa-like treatment to show off your beautiful hair throughout the day with the Pantene Japan (Severe Damage Care) series.

Happy Fri-yay! Before you indulge over the weekend, may we interest you in some fun news? Here is the latest in the worlds of fashion and beauty.


BTS on Vogue



Here's the scoop from our contributor Mara Lagdamen: We have a lituation (lit + situation)! International Korean boyband superstars BTS have been featured in Vogue in a two-minute video. Clad in Calvin Klein, the seven-member group that debuted in 2013 and took the world and American television by storm last year sat down with Vogue for an exclusive interview. 


The video, which showcased the boys having fun inside a party bus, playing at an arcade, and dancing in front of the Staples Center, is a sight to see. The K-Pop hotshots also talked about fashion, music, and things they love about L.A.


Opium Noir



There's a new lipstick shade from Charlotte Tilbury and it screams "gorgeous." Inspired by on-screen sirens from the film noir era, the shade is seductive and glam.


A case of copying?



Some people on Instagram are mad at La Mer for supposedly ripping off the style of @gelcream, a beauty-centric Instagram account that's well-loved in the community. What do you think?


Andreja answers



Andreja Pejic has broken her silence about the remarks Miroslava Duma said in a conference about her and blogger Bryan Boy. In a video, which has been circulating online, Duma is seen saying she'll never feature Pejic and Bryan Boy because "we're very concerned about the beauty and purity of the things we publish." Pejic says she's hurt by the comments, but she'd like to focus on the fact that the fashion industry has embraced her and many others.

The rise of Marie Kondo's popularity is a sign that people want to declutter their life, cut the fluff they don't need and just go back to basics. As beauty enthusiasts, we're guilty of owning products that we don't actually use and can live without. Save time and money by cutting off these seemingly necessary beauty products that you don't really need. 


Anything That You Buy Just For The Packaging



If you're buying it just for Instagram, then it's not worth it. This item is just gonna end up at the back of your drawer, and eventually, you'll forget that you own it. So spare your hard-earned money and don't buy things just for the packaging. As consumers, we should demand that the product inside is just as good as the packaging. 


Lip Scrub



Instead of buying pricey lip scrubs, why not make your own using brown sugar mixed with honey or olive oil? If you're not up for that, there are other homemade lip scrub recipes that work just as well as the one you can buy off the shelves. Another thing that you should do is address the underlying issue that causes your lips to crack. Is it maybe because of that new matte lipstick or perhaps you're not drinking enough water? 


Professional Makeup Brushes



Unless you're pursuing a career as a makeup artist, you don't really need a wide array of professional makeup brushes. In fact, you can survive with just five brushes: a powder brush, foundation brush, angled brush for blush and contour, a brush you can use for eyebrows and eyeliner, and a double-ended eyeshadow brush.


High-End Highlighter



We can't deny that a swipe of some luscious high-end highlighter will make us look fresh and dewy, but the same effect can be achieved with a moderately priced highlighter. In fact, some ladies just use shimmer eyeshadow to make their cheekbones pop. For those who are blessed with oily skin, you can use a matte concealer that's two or three shades lighter than your skin colour for that gorgeous highlight without the grease. 




Primer



While primer does help in giving the skin a smoother look and keeping makeup in place, it's a product that's easily replaceable especially if you have dry skin. Some sunblocks and moisturisers may also help in reducing the appearance of large pores and can also prep the skin effectively. With that said, it's a case-by-case basis, so if you really need primer then go ahead. But if you're just doing it because everybody else is using one, then it's best to skip. 



Next, find out how stress affects your skin and what you can do about it.
