Sports Barbers, A Traditional Yet Modernized Barbershop In The Metro!

Gupit Binata , Semi-Kalbo, Flat-tops, and Army Cut! These are some of the funny terms for the haircut that we used to have when we were kids but as the time passed by, more styles emerged. We no longer settle to the same old style as we got so many hairstyles to choose from. Millennial men today are more conscious of their looks. They are easily influenced by the latest fashion and trends and getting the right hairstyle is just one of their concerns.
Well, good thing we got Barber Shops specialized for men that can provide us those trendy hairstyles. Like what I said on my previous post (Check : “Gupit Binata” No More! Because Men Deserves Better), men deserves a better hairstyle and we’re lucky enough that there are barbershops out there who are capable of providing the kind of service we truly deserves.
20170305_153703tSo few weeks ago, i went to SM Southmall to visit one of the branches of Sports Barbers. The concept of Sports Barbers is to  to deliver the best cuts for clients, inspired by traditional hairstyles and the most stylish men. I find it so intriguing on how they can offer a traditional styles that we grew up with while applying a modern approach to it. So I decided to get a haircut at Sports Barbers in SM South Mall and possibly to get a hair treatment as well.20170305_153036tInterestingly, i was welcomed by a seemingly familiar set-up. It was indeed similar to a traditional go-to neighborhood barbershop I grew up with. Except that it is quite modernized in terms of the equipment and products they use.20170305_153052t
Kuya Joel was my barber that time and he was really accommodating. He was asking me the kind of hairstyle I want but I just told him to do whatever he think would suit me. In my case, my hair is very thin and dry and merely damaged by the hair products I constantly use. I was actually aiming for a pompadour but we ended up settling with “semi undercut with slightly trimmed top”.20170305_153014t20170305_151017t20170305_140255hMe before the haircut!20170305_145021tOne thing I really appreciate from Kuya Joel aside from the awesome service (not to mention the great massage) is how he educates me on how to properly take care of my hair. He told me to refrain myself from using too much hair products for awhile and let my hair recover from the damage. He also shared some tips on how I can properly style my hair, how to partition it and how can i make the style deceiving so it will not look so thin and dry. 20170305_140145tAfter the haircut, he recommended me to get an Anti Dandruff Scalp Treatment to avoid hair fall and also to bring my hair back to their normal condition. It was a merely 30 minute hair treatment. 20170305_151054t20170305_145648tThere goes Kuya Joel applying the treatment!20170305_145011t20170305_144956r20170305_152926tTadah! It was one satisfying manly makeover! It was actually the first time that my hair is professionally done and this will definitely not the last! After all, I was advised to have a monthly hair treatment to bring my hair back to its great shape. 20170305_153224tIn case you wondering, here are the Sports Barbers Service rates. They also offer massage, nailcare and hair color services and I just love how they wittingly and aptly named each service package which are all inspired from sports.20170305_153325tAside from the services, Sports Barbers also offer organic hair products from pomade, wax and hairspray20170305_153338t20170305_153455t

Our parents, siblings or friends who stuck with you through thick or thin should form part of this special month. Loving yourself should not be set aside as well.

Take time to take care of your own appearance and since our hair is on top of our body, it is pertinent that we start with it. Here are a few tips in maintaining a healthy hair.

  •  Observe good hygiene all the time – regularly wash your hair to remove dirt and grimes
  • Be extra careful whenever combing your wet hair – your hair is vulnerable to breakage during this period.
  • Use towel to dry off your hair after shower – Using hair dryer can cause damage to your hair; if you must use the heat then do so sparingly.
  • Eat the proper nutrition– Our hair is also dependent on what we eat. Iron-rich food and protein strengthens your hair.
  • Have enough sleep – Lack of sleep can cause hair loss. Sleeping allows our hair to repair and regenerate. Changes in our sleeping patterns have shown to affect our body’s immune and hormone function, as well as our physical and mental stamina. Our hair is very sensitive to these changes within the body.
  • Pamper your hair – Give your hair a proper massage with the nutrients it needs.

Eyelashes Growth Products?

Have you heard about the “Eyelashes Growth Products?” Who would have thought that there are such products available in the market today? Well, i am aware about those permanent mascara or those eyebrows tattoos which are quite in demand nowadays but I didn’t know that there such products that will let your eyelashes grow much faster. First of all, eyelash is a hair and they all grow naturally, however, it might took time to achieve your desired length. So maybe, it is really not so surprising that they will come up with this kind of product.

Ironically, some people used to pluck their lashes , believing that it will make their eyes look wider.  I am not really sure if there is a scientific explanation behind or it’s nothing but hoax. Same thing goes with the eyelash growth products, I’m not really sure how effective they are or if they are really working but of course we can always look for a reliable product review regarding to eyelashes growth products. Just like what they said, you’ll never know unless you try it but make sure that you will deal with a reputable company or well trusted product.

Dealing With Eye Bags

Eye bags have been a part of my life ever since I started to realized that I am an insomniac. Not to mention my unhealthy working habit and my regular graveyard shift. It really stress me out but i just can do nothing but to deal with it because I need my work and I have to finish my job on time even if it means that I am going to sleep as late as 10 am! I am a certified night owl indeed so do not be surprised when you see me wearing shades because I tend to hide those irritating eye bags. Over the years of having this kind of lifestyle, I was able to try different kind of remedies just to get rid of them. Some of them are tips shared to me by my friends while others are discovered from books and internet. Let me list them down to you and I hope you find them useful too.

Cucumber Slices – The use of cucumber slices as an eye bag remedy is among the most common natural treatments. I’m not really sure if it’s really helpful or if it does take any effect once you applied it on your bags. They said that the cooling effect makes the eye bags look smaller but it doesn’t really do anything to treat the eye bags. But since it’s not risky, it is still worth a try. Who knows there is truth behind those rumors about cucumber slices.

The Use of Tea Bags – The use of tea bags has been proven effective based on some articles i have read from some of those Health magazines . helps to alleviate the fluid retention and draining into the sensitive under-eye area, effectively helping the swelling and puffiness of the eye.

Drink A lot of Water – Drinking water is indeed a healthy routine but I’m not so sure if it can keep all your eye bags away. Nevertheless,whether it’s effective or not, drinking plenty of water is a necessity for everyone.

Get a Lot of Sleep – Probably the most effective natural way of treating eye bags is to get plenty of sleep. You get eye bags because of your unhealthy sleeping habit so the best way to kill them is by establishing a good sleeping habit.

Eye Creams – Nothing can be more effective than those skincare products that are made specifically for your eyebags. There are numerous creams for dark circles and you can even purchase them online. Just make sure that you will be dealing with a reputable pharmaceutical company to ensure your safety. Even though these creams are for external use, it doesn’t mean it will do no harm to you. You still have to choose the righ product carefully. Get recommendations from your friends or better yet, ask the experts to help you out in choosing the right cream.

I hope you find them helpful guys. if you have any suggestions, feel free to leave a comment here and it will highly be appreciated.
