For 20 years of my very existence, I've never had to worry stuff about being beautiful & such. For example, I don't even care if I have hairy legs (although having hairy armpits is quite unforgivable) or that I don't wear feminine enough. I had no problems with anything to do with my appearance. You must be thinking this is another post about my protest regarding my principles on beauty again, right?

You're WRONG!


This is the most random & most wu liao post ever! Since I came to Adelaide, I realised since last year that I've been having dandruff now & then. =( When I went home last summer, everything was normal again. This year, it started developing again...since mid-winter? I can't remember when...*sigh* I could still remember how I thought people with dandruff must be dirty & that they don't wash their hair enough. But since I shampoo my hair every 2 days, it's impossible that my hair's dirty right??? So I decided to do some research on dandruff. =D

& *gasps* I learnt that dandruff can be caused by emotional/physical stress & the season - usually worse in winter. These are 2 of the factors. I wonder if it's both in my case. So, for the first time in my life, I had to go shop for anti-dandruff shampoo. =( Fortunately for me, mine is not as serious as described in many websites - "White scales and flakes on the scalp which fall onto the shoulders" or "may be associated with irritation or itching".

Before I end this post, here's a really funny pic that describes what dandruff is really all about. XP

*update: ish! i tried to link the pic here & it failed because the pic was copyrighted - wtf =.=

i think it might be dryness from winter... cuz i get it sometimes during winter. it was especially bad during my first year here.
but i did switch to head and shoulders after that (during winter only). haha. plus i use the sunsilk dandruff control conditioner.
dont worry it should go away. :)
