      Answer to the question of the week: I think what makes a great-looking hair is one that doesn't frizz out and has a beautiful shine to it. I went out on a date with this guy and we went around makati, got rained on and everything. The date itself was great but after the date he commented how frizzy my hair was.  I was mortified! On our next date i used HBC's Henna Wax hair treatment on my hair and to my amazement he commented that my hair was better that day. It wasn't frizzy anymore despite the fact that it also rained that day and we hang out in a really windy place.

      Answer to the question of the week: A great looking hair for me is the one that is soft, shiny and manageable. Once, I came in late in the office and my hair is still wet and tangled. Then it was announced that we will have a presentation with the bosses in 30 mins. So aside from cramming for the presentation, I know that I should look good to impress..Thank God I always bring with me a leave-on conditioner to keep my hair manageable and great looking

      Answer to the question of the week: A great looking hair for me is with no freaking baby hairs because one time when I'm going to my duty in the hospital as a student nurse we should be neat and clean and the hair is not exemption, I lots of baby hairs or "tutsang" so I feel uncomfortable with my hair so I used my Hortaleza professional Hair cuticle coat and in an instant my baby hairs are tamed.

      Answer to the question of the week:

      Unbelievable! Worst Bad Hair Day EVER today! No way was I going to let it ruin my whole day – too many places to go, people to see, things to do, stores to shop!

      I went to a beauty parlor one day before our company's out of the country seminar. The hairdresser hadn't given me the auburn highlights I wanted, she  transformed me into an almost burgundy red-head. I shrieked in horror and told the hairdresser that she got it completely wrong. She seemed not to care and just said that this was a much better look. When she then shrugged and said "Sorry" as if she didn't even care about my looks had a complete melt-down. Eventually I calmed down and asked myself what it was that I was so upset about. Was the hair really so awful? Well it wasn't what I wanted, but it wasn't as bad at all. After all, hairdressers play an important role in supporting our self-image and you have to be able to trust them to make you feel good. My bad hair day ended up teaching me a lesson about establishing boundaries and not putting up with unacceptable behavior.

      VOILA!!! It came out Fabulously!!! NOW my day is back in control and moving in a positive direction – because, you know, if you feel good, you look good and when you look good you are FABULOUS! Next time you have a bad hair day – just say – this is just bad hair, and it’s not going to ruin my whole day! Do a quick do over and you’ll be ready to show the world your most fabulous you!

    12. Thank you Katherine! Yeah, I agree with you. I can't remember anymore how many times I have left parlor disappointed. But then we just learn to live with what we end up with eventually... Just because it's not the style we originally wanted doesn't mean we look awful with it (err most of the time ^^,). Besides, the hairdressers wouldn't let us leave their parlor looking terrible. :P

      Answer to the question of the week: i was on my vacation and i had my hair relaxed and after 3 days, i took a bath. then, i thought it was going to be a bad hair day coz my hair got frizzy and tangled. i spend my whole time combing it and still, it looks like a horse's tail! i don't even wanna go out to attend mass and go shopping! i thought that my hair would spoil my vacation! thanks to my ever trusted hair serum. it made my hair looks shiny, easy to comb and the frizz was gone! aside from making my crowning glory beautiful, it made my day so worry-free!

      Answer to the question of the week: 
      Great looking hair for me is having a hair that is convenient, easy , manageable and having an inexpensive style.   One time, I have this an unforgettable hair nightmare, literally,  I just had a dream that my hair was so dry and brittle. No matter what I did, nothing would help. I spend tons of money on all the best salon brand, conditioners  and all the treatments and nothing worked. My hair was so bad that I could take a bunch of strands, tug on them just a little bit and they snap in half. Then I woke up in panic. I thank God its only a dream, a nightmare, an unforgettable hair nightmare. After that, I realized that I really need to take care of my hair. It translates/means into a good shampoo, conditioner and even hair treatment and the only thing that suits the best is hbc. Plus the fact that I also use a good brush because it can make all the difference when it comes to hair and making it look great. After using hbc, I loved the convenience of having a "GREAT HAIR EVERYDAY" and a style that always look fabulous without the hassle.  When it comes to hair, we shouldn't stick to just one brand that we tries once and were happy with. And you know what it is.

    15. Thanks Shaz! True, hair can make or break a day. If your hair looks like a mess, chances are, you will feel the same way that day, too, right? But good to know you didn't let your bad hair day spoil the fun :D

      Good luck! :D

      Answer: The great looking hair for me is tangle -free hair, manageable and shiny. My unforgettable hair nightmare was when I was in high school my Mom convinced me to have my hair permed,after the treatment it was fine but when I get home and a day passed I had it shampooed and dry it was so frizzy. I was then so tan after the volleyball tryouts. I look so funny and ugly.

There was a time when I decided to cut my hair short, I think I was around 13 years old. My hairdresser cut my hair way too short and way shorter than I asked for....horrible. I have always had very long hair and I only got it trimmed once in a while. I felt bad. I instantly had regrets. I wish that I could turn back time and not make that mistake of chopping it off. After a week or so, I found myself actually liking it. I just needed to get over the shock and get used to it. I didn't brood on my hairdresser much because I knew that my hair would grow back easily. After my hair grew back, I just found a better salon. Twitter username: @mhoie1325Link to blog post about this giveaway: https://twitter.com/#!/mhoie1325/status/134188146630991873

      Answer to the question of the week:
      Great-looking hair is very essential in overall physical beauty. Hair should be smooth, shiny and free from split ends and tangles.
      My unforgettable hair nightmare took place an hour before my job interview. Blame the midday sun, pollution and sweat. I was very nervous yet excited but my confidence went rock-bottom when I saw myself in the mirror. There's no way I'm gonna bag that much coveted job with my awful hair. Instead of wallowing in self-pity, I immediately went to the nearest convenience store and bought some hair product. I rushed to the nearest toilet and applied the product to my hair. And guess what? I aced the interview and got the job! Thank God for convenience stores and of course that magical bottle of hair cuticle coat! =)

So after drying my hair with my towel I just tie it in a bun. No brushing or combing at all. I just make a messy bun and go with it. When I have some time to kill I just untie my bun and apply HP smooth out style cream and viola! My hair would look naturally straight and smooth no frizz at all! Twitter: MissGennD

      What is great-looking hair for you? Share with us your most unforgettable hair nightmare and what you did to turn it around. Great-looking hair for me is the one with soft, silky and manageable hair and not the frizzy one. The most unfoegettable hair nightmare i experienced was when we attended a party and it happened our car was in the shop for repair. So we need to commute and turned my hair to super buhag-buhag & i can't manage to fix my hair while we're still in the jeepney because i'm carrying my super makulit baby boy. So when we arrived to the place, a friend told me "mahangin ba sa labas?". I was really embarass but instead i went to the comfort room & luckily i always have HP in my bag and fix my hair. =)

      Answer to the question of the week: Great looking hair for me is simple straight yet sexy hair. One of the most unforgetable hair experience i had when i turned out my hair to curly one. sa sobrang inggit with my sister we tried to plansta my hair, but what had happen is that nasunog.. i really cried out since i planned to make my hair longer that time and make it pa curl pa naman but then what my sister done to my hair is really disaster. :( What i did is that i go to parlor and cut my hair. but still fine with me because instead of having curly one on that summer, i make my hair short yet straight and sexy naman. :)

      Answer to the question of the week:
      For me great hair is healthy and not frizzy. It's something that complements your face shape and personality. My hair nightmare was when I had my hair cut shorter than what would fit me.  I turned it around by just being cool about it, waiting for it to grow out and just taking care of it. I also tried to find ways to style it so that it didn't look so bad. :D

      I had my hair rebonded three times this year...It made my hair so frizzy, dry and dead looking...To repair my dead hair, I used deep conditioning treatments and serums and used hot towel for 3 months!...I learned my lesson: eat healthly, use good hair products, cut the ends of your hair and never rebond your hair thrice a year!!!
