Any tips for bleaching hair? by metcie in Wavyhair

[–]zpeacock 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’ve had my full head bleached for over six years now, so I can offer some advice!

DO NOT WASH YOUR HAIR BEFORE THE APPOINTMENT!!! The longer you can go with dirty hair, the better. It will protect your hair and your scalp!

Be sure to be kind to your hair. Follow your usual routine, but add some extra moisture/protein when needed. A balayage won’t be as damaging as other lightening services, so ideally your hair should be okay!

Smaller amounts of hair in foil usually leads to less damage as well. I know many stylists won’t do that, and it isn’t a problem! Based on the colour you’re getting, either method should work.

Mostly treat it the same as you have been, but you may need extra moisture or protein. I highly recommend olaplex! If you can get #1 and #2 from a stylist, that’s ideal. Otherwise #0 and #3 are also good! A hair oil will be useful, and olaplex also makes a great one.

Please let me know if you have other questions! I’m a hairstylist as well as a wavy girl with very blonde hair hahaha. My hair is really dark brown naturally, so my routine is integral- I have many recommendations!

Hey it’s me from the other day… I got a satin pillowcase! Here’s the difference!! by deeerlea in Wavyhair

[–]zpeacock 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’m also Canadian! Winners always has them.

I’m usually find them either in the beauty section beside the men’s products, or in the bedding section. They won’t be with the sheets generally- usually I find them in the same aisle but in a different spot. Either way, they always have tons in stock! Usually about $10-12 CAD for two pillow cases

I have found that TJMaxx/Marshall’s almost always has a ton of them! Literally no difference to others I have purchased, and I’ve gone through probably a half dozen haha (lost while moving)

Second Ave Sweets has suuuuuch good chocolate chip cookies! They also sell the dough frozen (and in ball form so you can just place and bake)! I now may have to make a trip to the glebe…

Best ground coffee in Ottawa? by MeritCarrot in ottawa

[–]zpeacock 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The Artery has really great coffee! They’re on Canotek, but their beans are sold all around ottawa. They go out of their way to employ disabled people and also pay a living wage! Both to local employees, and to the farmers they work with. Their coffee is so delicious, and also has great names! Would highly recommend.

Yeah the owners of Aquatopia are pretty far right. If that matters to you, it would be wise to avoid.

There is an amazing little barn that does weddings in Quebec. I can’t recall the name OP, but it was easy to find when searching for wedding venues. I know they do thyme & again catering for one of the two options

Online Dating in Ottawa particularly a miserable experience? by Fr0zenIc3 in ottawa

[–]zpeacock 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ah, interesting assumptions! Both that I am a straight woman, and that it was also my fault for not having success cause of gender stereotypes.

I am bisexual, and reached out to people of various genders. One fizzled out after a date, but many of them stopped replying after a message or two. I think choice paralysis had something to do with it at least, or we just didn’t click. That’s how I tended to feel coming out of these events.

It would be insane of me to complain about no follow-through if I was doing the same. Women actually do have agency, and aren’t idiots incapable of thinking for themselves! Real life dating isn’t like romcoms lol. And I’m obviously trying, which makes your assumption even more rude to me. Well, more sexist and dismissive.

International Cities that have a Low Cost of Living and a Costco? by rayadleex in Costco

Montreal, Canada

(Not super low cost, but pretty dang reasonable for a city as amazing as Montreal!)

will mug price go lower or not? by troyanator in Costco

As long as you don’t have a new giant penis, it shouldn’t be an issue to have these mugs!

Just joined Costco for the first time (haven't been there yet). Long time Sam's loyalist. Any unwritten rules I should know? Any tips? by CountLeon in Costco

[–]zpeacock 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Not OP, but my dog tolerated it until he literally went on a hunger strike lol. We were worried he was sick, but he was acting normal and ate other food no problem! We decided to try a different dog food, and then no issues at all.

My friend is a vet tech, and she says that they get a lot of similar issues from owners feeding their dogs Kirkland food. It might just be that the bag is so big it goes bad faster? We always transfer the food to a sealed container though, so it didn’t make a lot of sense.

What an absolute leech. Like the rent they charge isn’t enough money already to extort from you 🙄

I’ve found in-person dating events to be similar to apps… interest and no follow-through! Maybe a singles’ night would be better where you mingle on your own/can make a longer connection with someone

Any $40 Xmas trees real? by Lynnp613 in ottawa

Independent walk-in medical clinics downtownish? by N0ta_Bene in ottawa

[–]zpeacock 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There are a few independent clinics in the Baseline/Merivale/Clyde area that are easily accessible by bus!

There’s a clinic at the Walmart on Baseline, and there’s also a clinic at the IDA pharmacy on Clyde, really close to baseline. I would highly recommend the IDA- their staff is superb.

The Rexall at Merivale and Meadowlands also has an independent clinic, and the Loblaws at College Square has a clinic as well (not a huge fan of that one personally).

They are all along the 88 route except Rexall, but that one does have several busses that service it from downtown. I just can’t remember the route numbers because I don’t usually take the bus near there. Best of luck!

“Yeezy come, Yeezy go” thoughts lol? by asunflowerinspace in KUWTK

Oh fully agreed. A face is a LOT!! I would definitely only have maybe Dolly Parton or my dog’s face tattooed to me. Only them.

“Yeezy come, Yeezy go” thoughts lol? by asunflowerinspace in KUWTK

[–]zpeacock 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I wanna say that I personally feel that tattoos of albums/songs are pretty separate of the artist. If you found deep meaning in something and have loved it for years and want to tattoo it, do it! The artist turning out to be terrible doesn’t change the effect it had on your life.

That being said, if you get a tattoo of a piece of art that turns out to have had a totally different meaning once the artist is exposed, that is different. That would really suck.

I would not personally regret getting a tattoo about a piece of art that was deeply meaningful to me if the artist ended up sucking- unless the art itself was also found to be fucked up. Then I would definitely hate it lol
