Salah kaprah tentang rambut dan kuku

Seperti kuku, rambut yang sudah ada di atas kulit, adalah sel mati. Mati. Killed. Dead. Apakah benda mati bernapas? Makan? Minum? Ikut lomba lempar lembing??

Bila demikian, apakah berarti tidak ada gunanya dan tidak perlu perawatan? Tentu tidak. Tapi salah kaprah kalau perawatannya untuk memberi nutrisi, membiarkan bernapas, etc. Memangnya dukun, mau membangkitkan benda mati? Plus kalau memang mau dibangkitkan ya mbok yang lain gitu, yg lebih berharga dan menarik misal err…..

Jadi bagaimana perawatannya? Ya tentu apa tujuan yang dikehendaki? I’m a nail polish addict, so my nails are the canvas I need to show off the polish. Jadi harus kuat, keras, dan permukaannya smooth. Kuat dan keras berarti pori2nya harus diisi. Pakai apa, ya macam-macam, perlu eksperimen. Karena contohnya nih, sponge mandi kan berpori-pori sehingga bisa menyerap …sesuatu. Untuk melakukan … sesuatu. Bisa menyerap air, minuman anggur, darah, dll. Kalo tujuan untuk lap jendela, yang mboros banget kalo diisi Sangria kan. Kecuali memang Sangria anti kotor dan kaca bisa bersih berminggu-minggu, boleh deh dilakukan. Or unless you have so much money you don’t know what to do with it.

So it’s a waste to shower nails and hair with nutrients, etc, because they’re dead. Killed.

Nutrisi itu diperlukan sebelum rambut atau kuku keluar dari permukaan kulit (killed!). But that’s for another blog post.

Hello world!

The title of the post is a generic one provided by WordPress, but it’s fitting so I will keep it.

I’ve been writing beauty and travel reviews elsewhere, but recently thought I’d be nice to have my own. There is already a slew of great beauty and nail blogs, many of which I’ve been regularly reading for the past few years (look for blogroll in the sidebar soon). So why another? Well, for one I think there is still a niche for an Asian perspective: a humid and hot clime is the true testing ground of good cosmetics. I also do¬† good amount of travel, often on the not so beaten path and based on experience, there is not enough info in English for this part of the region. Finally, I’m a researcher in my other life, so i look at jargons with a critical mind, and attack hype with zeal.

Welcome.
