Nakakaputi Ng Buhok Ang Stress

Hi SP Moms!

I've read an article about it and was curious to give it a try because feedback say your hair will look better. I have colored full(dense), frizzy, wavy, thin strands of hair and I want it to look healthy despite treatments done. With traditional washing, it's still dry and frizzy. So anyway if you want to try it here's how:

1) Make sure that you hair is fully saturated with water before you apply your conditioner. If you hair isn't totally soaked with water, it's going to be difficult for you to distribute your conditioner throughout your hair from root to tip.

2) After you apply your conditioner, leave it in for the regular amount of time that you would normally use.

3) When it's time to rinse, DON'T RINSE. This is the fatal error that many first-timers make. If you rinse your conditioner out and THEN apply shampoo, you're very likely going to end up with dry, brittle, tangled hair. Use your shampoo to remove your conditioner. Here's what I do: after my conditioner has been in my hair for several minutes, I quickly tilt my head in and out of the stream of my shower and get it a tiny bit more wet. Then, I apply my shampoo. I use about 25% less shampoo than I would use if I wasn't doing a Reverse Wash, because I don't want to strip my hair of all the conditioner. After I apply my shampoo, I lather and rinse as usual and...that's it!

here's the link

They say it works wonders than traditional washing so i'll try this tomorrow and provide feedback!  ;D

Members' Kumustahan board / Have you had paranormal experiences?

Back in high school, I was the first to get home and my usual routine is to slouch in the couch and watch TV still in my uniform. Around 7pm, I heard someone open the gate and I immediately thought it was my dad because of the distinct sounds of crutches(he's using one) while he was walking towards the door. Our dog who was sleeping behind the door(he was inside where I can see him) immediately woke up and became very excited, cried and wagged his tail in anticipation of my dad entering the house. I usually go out and greet my dad all the time, but at that time I felt veerrrry lazy to get up from my relaxed position. So I decided to wait for him to get in. I then heard my dad unwind the stainless steel chains(the kind that's thick and heavy) of our dirty kitchen(located outside) to unlock it. Then after several minutes, our dog went back to sleep, apparently tired of waiting since my dad took forever in the dirty kitchen. Minutes later, I heard the gate open once more and it sounded like my dad again like it was deja vu. The same thing happened- our dog got excited, chains were dragged and unlocked. I got curious and got up to check on him. What I saw was my dad looking like he just arrived. So I asked if he arrived earlier and stepped out to which he said he just came in.

Sino kaya makikita ko kung sinalubong ko yung unang dumating?  :o

Dapat Na Nga Ba Kayong Bumukod Mag-asawa?

photo by ISTOCK

It’s been 5years(whoa ang tagal na pala) since we started living with my in-laws temporarily. I was really against it at first, but I’d like to think that we had no choice back then with the back-to-back loan we got since everything was unplanned, from one baby to another(hindi natuto). Then we made it official by tying the knot, and this year, our eldest started schooling. Within those span of time, I learned to be indifferent in a certain level and practiced selective hearing otherwise, I could get depression. There’s MIL(nagger but caring, manipulator), Lola(never fails to make disparaging remarks about MIL ughh negative vibes), BIL(high school: young, wild, free, in short-sakit sa ulo), then us. Only Hubby and I are working, but MIL et al gets monthly allowance from SIL(resides abroad). MIL gets the bulk of course, and frankly I don’t care how she spends it because it’s hers. We take care of the electric bill(5k for a small house), while the rest  of the bills is paid by SIL. Now that we’re about to finish paying our huge loan, I told hubby that it’s about time we move out and he just nodded. I know that MIL will not approve of us leaving and I’m afraid she will nag hubby to stay for many reasons 1)so there’s a man in the house, 2)so someone can help discipline his brother(extremely spoiled by the Lola), 3)so we can save(did not and will not happen in that house), and so forth. If we ever manage to leave, I can just imagine her always calling hubby and bringing him bad news from home(so bad she can get nervous breakdown according to her) so he will be prompted to go back. How can I say so? Because it happened 5years ago when I was pregnant with our first born and we were living on our own. I’m preparing myself and dreading “the talk” with MIL/SIL, but I think when that happens, I’ll shut down. My fingers are crossed (including legs, thighs, eyes, everything!) that hubby will not be swayed.

Special Occassions / stressful wedding
« on: August 30, 2014, 10:51:25 am »
we already have kids and we thought a church wedding would make it official. the problem is we could never set aside money for it since hindi kami marunong mag save. so we decided na pilitin namin kasi if we wait till we have the right amount, it may never happen at all since the kids will begin schooling soon. we loaned money and DIY and peg ng wedding but it's sooooo stressful for me kasi i don't have enough close friends to help me since i'm from the province. some offered to take care of other costs, only to tell us at the last minute that they can't. now i'm dreading the day because i know maraming palpak at butas pa ang bulsa namin.  :( :( :(

5 Paraan Para Mapaputi Ang Naninilaw Na School Uniforms
Click HERE.

hi fellow moms! i need your inputs about hand washing. wala kasi kaming washing machine, so hand wash ko lang lahat. ang problema eh medyo hindi ako marunong maglaba.  :(

ang prob ko sa mga puti, parang hindi naman pumuputi kahit magdamag kong binabad sa sabon w/ zonrox.

yung sa mga dark clothes, nagka prob ako before kasi may mga puti-puti na naiiwan. so tanong ako sa mama ko sabi niya dapat may nakahanda ng batya na may tubig para yung mga damit na  tapos na eh lagay doon para hindi matuyuan ng sabon. after mabanlawan, ibabad ko pa daw sa downy 1banlaw para sure na wala na talagang sabon na natira. effective naman. 

hindi na kasi keri ng budget na laging magpalaundry kasi we have 2 babies na.

i would appreciate any tips sa paglalaba. TIA!  ;D

Sexuality / lights on or lights off? sa araw o sa gabi?
« on: May 05, 2012, 02:01:43 pm »
hello mga sis! naisip ko lang naman ito.. do you do it with your hubby/bf/sd with the lights on, or lights off? tsaka madalas ba sa gabi o sa araw? or you just do it anytime it hits you, anywhere sa bahay, or sa kwarto lang? ang dami ko naman tanong. for fun lang mga sis.  ;)

kami kasi sa kwarto lang talaga kasi laging may tao sa bahay tsaka mas madalas sa gabi pag tulog na si baby at lahat ng tao sa bahay. haha. paminsan-minsan na lang yung sa araw kasi busy. and for me prefer ko talaga lights out kasi parang romantic ang feeling.  ;D

Inspiration / Rocks and Sand
« on: June 08, 2011, 03:56:42 pm »
A philosophy professor stood before his class and had some items in front of him. When class began, wordlessly he picked up a large empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks, rocks about 2" in diameter.

He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was. So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks.

He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The students laughed. The professor picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else.

"Now," said the professor, "I want you to recognize that this is your life. The rocks are the important things - your family, your partner, your health, your children - anything that is so important to you that if it were lost, you would be nearly destroyed."

He continued, "The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, your car. The sand is everything else. The small stuff."

"So, if you put the sand into the jar first, there is no room for the pebbles or the rocks. The same goes for your life. If you spend all your energy and time on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are most important to you."

mga mommies, have you tried this? ginaya ko lang kasi sister ko when she had her baby. eh idol ko talaga si ate kaya sinunod ko rin. ok naman si baby, malakas kumain. sweet potatoes ang gusto niya so far. how about you mga momsies?

Malambot ang puso ni Daddy Patrick Garcia
Si Daddy: Mapapagod Pero Hinding-Hindi Susuko!


tanong lang mga mommies. hands-on ba si hubby when it comes to taking care of your baby? like feeding, giving baby a bath, changing nappies.. etc. how involved is he?

in a scale of 1-5, five being the highest, how do you rate your partners? :)

mine is 4.

pag tulog sya, yun lang ang time na di sya hands-on kay baby. mantika kasi matulog, so ako na lahat pag tulog sya. pero pag restdays namin, we take turns taking care of our baby.
