DIY: split ends

EN   I’ve just bought a pair of scissors because I like to trim my split ends. It’s not my first time, I did it a lot of times before.. I also did more radical haircuts, I’m not afraid to play with the hair. My mum was my model, I cut her hair several times and she really liked it. I plan to try my new scissors on her soon 😀 Other clients on my list were Dan and my brother.
I started to do this, because I was getting tired of coming upset from the hairdresser… It’s those times when you specifically say “please, just the ends, just a little, I like my hair long!” and then.. BUM! half of it is on the floor… I don’t know about you, but my hair grows really really slowly.. so yeah, I’m mad when I lose too much of it.. so, I chose to do it myself, and it’s much better like this 🙂
Of course, I still go to a professional once in a while to arrange my hair and everything, but for the split ends, I can do it myself 🙂

RO   Tocmai mi-am luat o foarfeca profesionala ca sa-mi tai varfurile despicate. Nu e prima data, de multe ori am mai experimentat.. am facut si frizuri mai radicale, fara nicio frica. Mama a fost modelul meu, sa zic asa.. i-am taiat parul de cateva ori si chiar i-a placut. Ba mai mult, urmeaza sa testez foarfeca pe parul ei in curand 😀 Alti clienti pe lista mea au fost Dan si fratele meu.

Am inceput sa ma tund singura pentru ca deja era prea de tot.. nu vi s-a intamplat sa mergeti la coafor si sa spuneti clar “doar varfurile, putin din varfuri” si.. cand colo.. jumatate de par e pe jos.. nu stiu voi, dar mie imi creste fffoarte greu, si da, ma enervez rau cand vad ca am pierdut mult..asa, degeaba..  asa ca, am hotarat sa o fac eu singura, si e mult mai bine 🙂
Sigur ca merg din cand in cand la un profesionist, sa-mi mai dea o forma.. sa imi puna tratamente etc.. dar cu varfurile despicate ma descurc si singura 
Here’s some good food for your hair!
Mai jos, cateva alimente bune pentru par!
  • Almonds – high in vitamin E
  • Migdale – bogate in vitamina E
  • Walnuts – vitamin E, Zinc. They help produce a good circulation to the scalp.
  • Nucile – vitamina E, Zinc. Ajuta la buna circulatie a sangelui din scalp
  • Sunflower seeds – they contain lots of vitamins and are good for a healthy hair. But pay attention to the sodium and other aromas added in the ones you buy.
  • Seminte de floarea soarelui – contin multe vitamine si contribuie la un par sanatos. Dar trebuie sa fim atente la concentratia de sodiu si alte arome artificiale adaugate, atunci cand le cumparam.
  • Figs – High in iron, magnesium, vitamin A,B and C, folic acid, sodium and potassium. They containt 80% more potassium than the bananas do.
  • Smochinele – bogate in fier, magneziu, vitamina A,B si C, acid folic, sodiu si potasiu. Contin cu 80% mai mult potasiu decat bananele.
EN  Other good foods are bananas, oranges, oat, and the list can go on. I chose these because they are so healthy not only for the hair, but for our entire body. They have tons of calories, it’s true..but if you eat around 30grams/day it’s ok.. MODERATION is the key to everything, right?
RO  Alte alimente ar mai fi bananele, portocalele, ovazul etc. Le-am ales pe cele de sus pentru ca sunt extrem de sanatoase nu doar pentru par ci si pentru intregul organism. Intr-adevar au tone de calorii, dar mancate in jur de 30grame/zi e ok.. MODERATIA  e cheia, nu?

Hair volume

I have flat and thin hair. I also use the hair straightener very often, that’s why I try to avoid too much damage to my hair. So, for having volume I choose to use the curlers – easy, fast, efficient. 
Am parul subtire si slab. Folosesc presa foarte des, de-aia incerc sa am grija de el cat pot. Asa ca, pentru a avea volum, cel mai des aleg bigudiurile scai – usor, simplu si foarte eficient.

I usually dry my hair after washing it. (If I don’t use a dryer, the hair is very flat, that’s why I don’t like to leave it to dry naturally) Afterwards I put the magic pink things and just stay like this as much as possible. I never fix them very tightly so I won’t damage the hair. 
De obicei ma usc pe par imediat ce l-am spalat. (Daca nu folosesc uscator, mi-e foarte plat parul, de-aia nu-l las sa se usuce singur). Dupa imi pun chestiutile astea roz si stau cu ele cat pot. Niciodata nu le fixez prea tare, ca sa nu trag de par, sa nu-l slabesc. 

I really like the volume, I think it really looks good and natural.
Imi place volumul care mi-l ofera scaiurile astea. Cred ca arata foarte bine si natural. 

Once you have the volume, you can arrange your hair in different ways. You can put a flower, put on a dress, some high heels sandals, a big pair of earrings and you’re off to go!
Odata ce-ai capatat volum, poti sa-ti aranjezi parul in diferite moduri. De exemplu, poti pune o floare, o rochita, niste sandale cu toc, o pereche de cercei mari si esti gata!

Or you can make a hair bun behind. Because you have volume at the roots, it will look more classy. 
Sau poti sa-l prinzi in spate, daca vrei ceva mai classy. Avand volum la radacina, un coc simplu va arata mult mai dragut.

Another option is to choose the side tail. I usually like this look, but unfortunately the picture is not the best.. Anyways, I hope you can make an idea about what I mean 🙂
Alta optiune ar fi o coada in lateral. De obicei imi place cum imi sta asa, doar ca poza asta nu-i tocmai reusita. Oricum, sper ca ti-ai putut face o parere 🙂 

In the end, I chose to leave it wild and free! It looks natural and perfect for the summer, what do you think? 
Pana la urma, am hotarat sa-l las lejer, fara niciun accesoriu. Imi place ca arata natural si perfect pentru vara, tu ce crezi?

Summer hair

What you need:

How to do it:
Step 1


                                               Start covering the black part with your hair 
                                      (it is supposed to look messy, so don’t try to make it perfect)
                                            Începe prin a acoperi elasticul negru cu părul
                                     (nu te chinui să-l aranjezi perfect, trebuie să pară aşa mai lejer)


At the end you could make a braid, or just hide your hair in the back. I’ve chosen to make a braid. 
La sfărşit poţi să împleteşti restul părului sau pur şi simplu să-l ascunzi în spate. Eu l-am împletit.


P.S. Sorry, I know the pictures are not that clear..
