In 2012, I destroyed my hair so badly with at-home hair bleach, that it felt like rubber bands and broke off in my hands 😨 I ended up cutting it into a bob. Then I had a pastel faze rotating in different shades of pink, blue and purple. A year later, I gave myself a sideshave. That year, I dyed it black. And later that year, I shaved the other side of my head and around the nape as well. I didn’t really like it, but it was kinda too late 🤷♀️
Soon after, I went to Arizona to see my grandma, who was staying in an RV park. She treated @nacho.libra_ and I with a visit to her hairdresser to get our hair done and insisted I go back to blonde. The hair salon was built in one of the RVs. I got highlights. The hairdresser put a gross/stained cap on my head and used a tool to pull out strands of hair to bleach it. When he washed it out, it was a skunky mess. Black hair with orange streaks. I could feel it breaking off as he blow dried it 😬
In 2014, I cut it into a pixie and bleached it blonde, to essentially start over. I had another pastel faze and tried being a redhead. In 2016, I dyed it brown and vowed to stop dying my hair for the first time since I was 13.
And now, my hair is the healthiest it’s ever been. The only thing I really had to do to get it to be long and soft is to decide to just leave it alone. I prefer it SO much more now because it isn’t damaged and I also don’t have to deal with roots and constant upkeep! 🤸♀️ When I was dying it so many colours all the time, it would only look good for the first couple of weeks. Then I would begin to dislike it until I paid to have it redone. It’s so much easier to just not do dye it at all, honestly. I’ve currently decided I’m going to grow it into a long majestic mane 🦁
Here’s what I do to keep my hair healthy these days
💁♀️ Eat spirulina in my daily smoothie
💁♀️ Shampoo hair only every 2-3 days
💁♀️ Only heat style on the weekend (except for my bangs)
💁♀️ Use a vegan heat protectant
💁♀️ No hair dye
💁♀️ Remember my hair goal
You can swipe in the post to see some of my many hair fazes 😛
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed my lessons learned and random hair story 😂 What’s yours?

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT!🤩 @_videogamejesus
"Deeply fascinated by the magic of creators such as Moebius, Miyazaki, and Shigeru Miyamoto from very early in my childhood, I've always wanted to pierce the mystery behind their ability to absorb viewers into their universes, their dreams.
Since then I've been drawing a lot, and quickly the digital arts became my main medium. I've programmed my first games in elementary school, I learned how to paint and animate digitally, and those have been my favourite mediums to express my vision, which became more emotionally intimate in the last years."

A few of you asked for this vermicelli noodle bowl recipe last week, so here it is! (This one was all Kaleb, so you know it’ll be good).👨🏼🍳
Ps. This would go great with a side of veggie spring rolls, too!
Sticky Lemon Tofu Vermicelli bowl
(Makes 2 bowls, with leftovers)
1/2 pkg brown rice vermicelli noodles
1/2 block of tofu + 2tbsp cornstarch
1/2 cucumber, julienned
1/2 red pepper, julienned
2-3 carrots, spiraled
1 cup of shredded lettuce (we used spiraled zucchini instead here because we were all out)
1 cup bean sprouts
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1/4 cup crushed peanuts
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup rice vinegar
1 clove of garlic, smashed
2 slices of ginger
3/4 tsp vegan fish sauce (or 1/4tsp miso paste + 1/2tsp soy sauce)
2 tbsp soy sauce
1/4 cup maple or agave syrup
3/4 cup veggie stock
Juice & zest of a lemon
2 tbsp cornstarch
2 tbsp water
For the noodles:
Cook your noodles according to the package. Make your dressing by adding the rice vinegar, garlic, ginger, miso paste and soy sauce to a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Take off the heat, allow to cool and then remove garlic and ginger.
For the tofu:
Cube tofu and toss in cornstarch until well coated. Spread out on a baking sheet and bake for 30 min at 400F. •
While your tofu is baking, make your tofu sauce. Bring soy sauce, maple syrup, veggie stock and lemon juice to a boil in a saucepan. Mix the cornstarch and water in a small bowl, then add to the saucepan. Bring to a boil, lower and let simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add lemon zest.
After 30 min, remove tofu from oven and add to a bowl with the tofu sauce. Toss until well coated and spread back out on to the baking sheet and bake for another 5-10 minutes to get the sauce super sticky and slightly caramelized.
Build your bowls! Add your noodles and veggies, pour some of the noodle dressing on top, add your tofu and garnish with cilantro and crushed peanuts.
