Shampoo and Hair Mist | Azalea Beauty Hijab

If you’re the kind of hijabi who forgets when the last time you washed your hair because you don’t have anyone to show them off to and realize only at the last minute at how greasy your scalp and hair has become (like me), I might have the solution to that little problem.

In the first day, I washed my hair with Hijab Shampoo and it does wonders! I have never felt my hair so clean before in my entire life. It’s like when you spray a greasy glass and wipes it off and it leaves a squeaky clean sound, that is what your hair will feel like, with all the cooling sensation that comes from the menthol. After drying, the shampoo leaves a subtle hint of smell, which might be your thing if you prefer to not be overwhelmed with a strong flowery smell.

FullSizeRender (7)For the next three days, I laid off washing my hair and instead tried to spray it with Hair Hijab Mist before and after school. While it does leaves an amazing smell, the mist will eventually oil up and shine your hair with grease, so I recommend against either wearing it too much or not washing your hair too long. You can also spray the mist to your hijab after Physical Education class or just to get through a sweaty day.

Over all, I’m happy with the products, especially the shampoo. Even though it leaves my hair dry, the squeaky clean result is something that I encourage all of you to try out!

Unfortunately, this product only sells in Indonesia, but I will leave a link to all of you who wish to check them out.

I can’t give a specific location on this one, I simply found a herd of sheep on the side of the road and decided snap some shot. Go cross Suramadu bridge from Surabaya to Madura, head straight, take a careful look, and you’ll find the field on your right. Happy searching!

Jakarta-Surabaya Train Ride

Everyone in Indonesia spends Eid holiday in their hometown with their families. Some take planes, some use trains, and some brave souls have to ride their cars.

This year, my family took the train for the very first time. To new experience, my mother cheerfully said. When I first heard about it, I hated the whole idea. Train ride from Jakarta to Surabaya takes 7 to 8 hours. Plane only takes 2.  I remember dreading the idea of sitting in a suffocating space with a bunch of strangers for seven hours.

When I got into the train and sat down, the seven hours I spent felt very much like a needed therapy.

The train that I rode which called Argo Anggrek was very different with the typical airplane. The large windows, the endless space, the table, the electric socket, it was enjoyable, and to me, the best part of the trip is definitely the ever-changing scenery out of the window.

Let me show you.

The Hamilton Tag!

I have been quite obsessed with Hamilton for the past few weeks, and while I was lying in bed with my phone, I found a video on YouTube by JonasAlmostFamous entitled ‘The Hamilton Tag’. She is a huge Hamilton fan and created this tag!

She gave permission for all of us to use her questions, and I decided to do it, so here you go!

1) How did you find out about Hamilton?

I first heard about it from TheFineBros video about Elders reacting to the musical, but I definitely didn’t give too much thought about it because of how different it was from musicals I’ve seen. Then I saw the opening number of Tony, and the rest is history.

2) Favorite Character?

My favorite character will definitely has to be everyone’s favorite fighting Frenchman, Lafayette.

3) Character you would want to play?

Angelica Schuyler, hands down! She has such a great story line in the musical, although I won’t be opposed to playing Eliza as well.

4) Favorite song to listen to?

I got to list five, you all.

  1. Wait for It
  2. Satisfied
  3. It’s Quiet Uptown
  4. That Would Be Enough
  5. Aaron Burr, Sir

5) Favorite song to sing along with?

Wait for It, no competition.

6) Part you always mess up when you’re singing along?

Every rap part, I think, I mess up a lot. I can sing That Would be Enough just fine, but when it comes to the rap part, I just haven’t gotten the time to learn all of it.

7) Can you rap Guns and Ships?

I can sing along to the part where the Company sings ‘Lafayette!’

8) Which cast member would you most want to meet?

Daveed Diggs! He is such a lay back, charismatic person, and his little laughs are contagious, I’m telling you.

9) Have you seen the show?

No, and I don’t think I’ll ever get to see it with the original cast, but once I’m older and have enough money for myself, I’ll fly to New York and get a ticket.

10) Have you read the book?

I didn’t even know there was a book about it until I watched Jona’s video, but I will most definitely look for it.

11) Favorite line in the show?

life doesn’t discriminate between the sinners and the saints, and it takes, and it takes, but we keep living anyway, we rise and we fall and we break, and we make our mistakes, and if there’s a reason I’m still alive, when everyone who loves me has died, then I’m willing to wait for it.

12)Five words to describe the show?

Phenomenal, majestic, ethereal, unreal, and cinnamon roll.
