Outfit Post- The little black dress

Ever since i started working, it has become impossible for me to post regularly.
Though the working hour is 9 to 4,i can barely stay awake as soon as i reach home.I sleep like a hibernating bear for hours and hours.
To write a simple blog post ,i delay it until i feel so guilty about procastinating.
A big salute to all those working ladies who are also bloggers.
(And yes of course,a bigger hats off to full time housewife + bloggers).
I don't know how you do it.

All You Need To Know About Hair Extensions

A lady’s hair is considered as her crowning glory since the beginning of time.
If you can’t have natural ones you can always experiment with hair extensions and wigs.
There is no limit to the extend you can go.

Hair extension is also known as “artificial hair integration”.
For this purpose we can use-
1.synthetic hair or
2.Natural hair
A lot of websites have come up offering varieties of hair extensions with free shipping.
You can check out
There are many techniques for incorporating these hair extensions.
Some of them are listed below-
1.Clip in or Clip on extensions- This is perhaps the most commonly used technique by people around the globe.
PROS-It is not permanent. The clips can be worn both during day and night. However it can also be removed as per desire.
There is no disadvantage of hair loss due to excessive pull (medically termed as traction alopecia)
HOW TO USE- The hair is divided into equal partitions. At the top of the extension there are clips attached. Take the partition and snap the clip into place.
2.Bonding and sealing extensions-this maybe Soft bond or Hard Bond.
Soft bond is flexible and uses acrylic adhesives.
Hard bond is rigid and uses super glue or cyanoacrylate.
HOW IT IS DONE-It involves application of hair glue to a section of wefted hair depending on whether yoou prefer soft or hard bond.
Lasts 4-6 weeks.
HOW IT IS DONE-Hair extension is glued to the individual strands of human hair and sealed with heat clamp.
PROS-It gives the most natural look.
It also allows washing hair frequently.
HOW IT IS DONE-braiding natural tresses under a thin, breathable net that serves as a flat surface onto which stylists can weave extensions.Instead of braiding ,one can also sew the hair wefts onto the net or glue.
PROS- This method is not time consuming.
5.Lace fronts- These are made from nylon mesh materials.The shape is made into a cap. Tiny openings or ventilations are made into the cap manualy.
Can be used as Fringe/bangs.
1.Silky straight- like Asian hair
2.Deep Waves with spiral curls
3.Romantic Waves with soft curls
4.European –less straight than Asian hair
They can be washed with mild shampoos-preferably  sulphate and alcohol free.
The texture of hair purchased should be the style in which the hair is worn. Use of heat to straighten or to curl straight hair damages it.
The more you care for the hair, the longer they lasts.

 Its amazing what mascaras can do to open your eyes.
I am a mascara hoarder.
Sadly they have life span of 6 months only.
Anyway,today i will be reviewing MAYBELLINE ROCKET VOLUM express mascara washable.
The Waterproof has electric blue color with light blue rim .

The WASHABLE mascara is JUMBO electric blue conical with the rim and words in Neon Pink.
The wand is a very unique brush-with spikes projecting from all around.
It is a silicon bristle brush.
The spikes/bristles are of varying length with the ones on the tip being shorter than the rest.
They help to separate the eye lashes properly and prevent clumping.
The brush does pick up a lot of mascara

I got the shade in Brown black but it looks like soft black.
You can't really see the browns in it.
