Hello everyone!. I am so happy it is February, The month of love. If you know me. You know I love love. So today, I have easy hairstyles for curly hair to do at home that would look good for Valentine’s day. Whether you are going out or staying at home this February, These hairstyles will be your go-to for a change. But before that, I will be tackling a subject that is affecting me. It is in fact a health issue I go through. It is not serious but it is interfering with my work including my blog and my life at home and outside.
Health issue and life story
When I turned 20’s, I started to get some kind of allergy each time a
Little history about dust mites
These wicked insects live on animal skin but attack human skin. The bug is so tiny you cannot see it with your own eyes. It is so tiny it lives where dust accumulated and can be carried with them through the air. It also multiplies overnight like crazy if not controlled by lowering humidity and decreasing temperature. Even if they die due to an unhostile environment, Their debris would be left behind which also cause allergy. Both increases of dust mites and its debris can make someone’s life miserable ( those who are allergic to it).
My dust mites symptoms – All where it started recently
Anyway, If I touch a fur animal which to my bad luck I did in a visit to someone’s house a few weeks ago, I would get the allergy from two hours to a day. So, the family had 1 dog and 2 cats. My husband and I did not know That they have pets. Therefore, we stayed for about one-hour thinking that will limit my exposure to dust mites. However, It was enough for the dust mites to attack me and multiply the day after.
Therefore, I started to get the allergy after a day as constant itchiness. Then, Next thing I know, I have a runny nose, watery eyes, and swallow in the face along with constant sneezing. Since it can be transferred through the air, it seems it followed me into the house and infest it. From furniture, bedding, clothes to even the heating system, you name it, I think they are there.
Since they survive and feed on human’s skin or more precisely human’s shed, anything I touch it got infected. Here my friend where it all started. I have not felt this bad allergy for three years. It was devastating. I cannot lay down on anything for more than 5 minutes without feeling the sensation of itchiness. Then, it crawls up to my hair. Believe me it is not fun.
Besides, thanks to the severe cold weather, it is getting worse especially that I cannot open windows or doors or even step out to breath fresh air. I could not take pictures or even stay at home for the past couple of days. Unfortunately, It will take a while to be able to reduce the dust mites to minimal. But I can stay positive and pray that my excessive cleaning and precautions would work to my benefits. But until then. The symptoms are at worst case even with medication.
Is there a magic wand for my health issue
Unfortunately no, There is no magic wand for my health issue. Dust mites live most on pets but they are everywhere. They thrive more on a certain climate where humidity is at highest and there is no way I can avoid that, especially where I live. However, I just won’t let it stop me from what I love to do which is hairstyles. Because there is always tomorrow and there is always another day with no dust mites in it.

pdo for curly hair – easy hairstyle for curly hair
This hairstyle is a continuation on the pinn back hairstyle. If you have slightly longer hair that you can do a bun style then this will work. In order to accomplish this hairstyle, You will need hair accessories preferably hair band that has some jewelry or stone on it, a handful of bobby pins and a hair tie.
Step by step Updo for curly hair
- After you pin back your hair as shown in the first hairstyle, Place the hairband of your choice on your crown by combing your hair back and sliding it on your crow from the back. Make sure to have the beautiful stone or design showing on the back of the hair as I did. You can use bobby pins to keep it in place.
- Then pull the rest of your hair to the back and secure with an elastic band.
- Now take a strand of hair from the tie and fold it on your finger and pin it in a place close to the tie. continue wrapping your strands until you have no hair to wrap.
- If you have long hair as I do, take the rest of the hair and wrap it again till you see no hair fly left from the ponytail.
The result will be undefined messy flower updo look. The headband along with this bun adds to this hairstyle so much. Besides, It doesn’t have to be defined to look good. As soon as you start wrapping everything will look good. Therefore, you don’t need to perfect it.
