First of all, I'd like a say a huge "THANK YOU" for the encouraging and comforting comments everyone left me in the last post. It's really heart-warming to hear how everyone's going through the same thing and that I'm not alone. I wish everyone the best in their life's journey, and please don't hesitate to ask me anything.
Anyways, since I've been MIA, I feel that a FOTD is in order. I've been doing REALLY simple looks lately, so I apologize for the boringness in advance.

A lot of people requested that I do a haircare products post to see what I use on my hair. Here's for you. :D As a starter, I wash my hair every other day since it doesn't get too oily. Oh, and sorry for the dirty products...they've been in my shower.
For shampoo, I use TreSemme Deep Cleansing shampoo. This gets my hair really clean and removes the buildup.
For daily conditioner, I alternate between Suave Sleek and Pantene Brunette Expression. They both get my hair silky smooth and smell really nice.
Once a week, I use a deep conditioner. Right now I'm using Excelsior Millennia Mud. It's different from other treatments in that it doesn't make your hair feel smooth when it's wet, but once it dries, the volume/shine/manageability is AMAZING! I got this at Sally's Beauty Supply.
I always use a leave-in conditioner after I towel dried my hair to protect from further damages. Right now I'm using Redken Extreme Anti-Snap. It just makes my hair more manageable and stronger.
For the days when I want extra shine, I use Redken Smooth Down Heat Glide. It's supposed to be a heat protectant, but I don't use any heat on my hair. Also, I feel that it smooths down my hair follicles and make it SHINE.
On the days when I overslept/too lazy to wash my hair, I use PSSSSSSSSST dry shampoo. You can get this at Walgreens for around $6. It smells like pineapples and doesn't dry out your hair. It cuts down the oil and make your roots more voluminous.
While we are on the topic of what I use, I decided to throw in body care products.
For shower gel, anything will do, but right now I'm using St. Ives Whipped Silk bodywash. It smells so soothing and is very moisturizing.
After my shower, while my body's still WET, I apply baby oil all-over. It seals in the water and make my skin really soft.
BTW, this is what I've been eating for a week straight. Smoke turkey legs!!! I eat one a day. these mofos are HUGE! They are so so so good though. I've been addicted to these ever since I went to Disney 7 years ago.
...and this is how you eat it.
