Cara Maria Hair.

You guys keep asking how I do my the dreads in my hair and how I do the beads and how I keep the red in.

Well

I’m going to make a video about all of that. It’s not as complicated as it looks.

Here are the steps to get you by before I air the tutorial:

1. Bleach the hair. Flash lightning kits 30 volume work best. Pick random piece of hair you want to be colored and bleach it til it turns the color of a banana peel.

2. Pravana CHROMASILK hair color. That’s the shit you use. I’m telling you. It LASTS and it’s cheap. And I like cheap.

Jack Sparrow Adult Scarf with Dreads: instant cara pirate. and it’s only temporary! Perhaps this is a better route?

3. Dreads? Take random hair from Claire’s or Hot Topic. The clip in stuff. I like it because it’s not real hair and it dreads after being washed a few times. I literally take the hair… and braid it into my own hair. That’s it! A simple braid! Secure with beads of your choice and elastics.

Care:

I wash my hair about once or twice a week. My hair doesn’t get oily or greasy looking. It looks bad when I wash it and looks good about the 4th day or so. That is just my hair type though. Everyone has different hair. You may need to wash it more or less depending.

Use SULFATE FREE shampoo because it helps the color last longer and keeps it brighter. I don’t wash the dreads but I scrub my scalp and roots and the shampoo and water runs through the dreads. I leave them in. They’ve been in for two years and counting. Good luck!

Devil Do Red Black Wig: Seriously- wigs are easily changeable and don’t do damage to your hair. Try this before you bleach and dye!

WARNING: This is a lot of damage to your hair. Seriously. Just try adding beads and braiding your Clip In extensions and just clip them in when you want them and take them out when you don’t. My dreads have been in so long that if I take them out I’ll be almost bald. You don’t want that. I used to use clip ins but then I realized I wanted them to be in 247 so I just sort of used metal wire and string to lock them in permanently. Dummy!

How to fight a monster (CutThroat edition)

This is what the cut throat cast turns into after a couple of alcoholic beverages.

Picture this:

You are in a haunted mansion

No cable, no internet, no music, no freedom

Competing for hidden treasure

Surrounded by savages who will stop at nothing to break you down and send you packing.

How do you fight? In style of course (you know….embrace your inner nerd)!

Here are my weapons of choice to battle the house monsters:

1.

Power Rangers Blade Blaster: How bad ass will you look rocking the red ranger's blaster? However, it may only be useful enough to take out a few silly puttys... not enough to tackle the she-devils and the mega bitch. So onto the next one....

2.

VooDoo Skull Staff: Powerful enough to take on some of the dark energy in that haunted house... but you will need more power than this.... so onto the next...

3.

Obi Wan FX Light Sabor: YES! If it can take out the dark side... surely it can put a dent in the evil duo's cruel intentions? Alas. Even if the force is with you... it still may not be enough to battle the MEGA BITCHES.

4.

Harry Potter Magical Wand: It has defeated the greatest evils known to Hoggwards academy. Surely it can defeat the evil of the Mega Bitches? No. Alas their souls are far too gone. I think we need something a bit different, though the "wand" is on the right track...... next......

5. “If you keep chasing after stars that others tell you are bright,

You will never catch your own star, the one for you that is right.” - The Star of Happiness

The Star Wand: You don't need guns, swords, and voodoo spells to defeat the enemy. You need to let your own beautiful self shine through. The more people bring you down, the more kind you need to be. In the end... life will come full circle. Throughout my journey I just remembered a beautiful quote from my favorite book...."Within you is everything you will ever need, and I promise the journey is treasure indeed. If you ever feel run down or out of luck... Just remember to never, never give up"- The Star of Happiness

Anger Management- by Cara Maria

Hey Look- it’s Ayiiia! (same size too)

Watching the Challenge: Cut Throat on MTV sort of fires me up. Have you ever wished to be a fly on the wall at school or work and hear all the crappy things people say about you when you aren’t around? I used to. Until I was cast on the show. Now every week I get to sit back and watch a verbal slew of Cara Crushing. Be careful what you wish for :(

Whenever I got pissed on the show… I would go out for a run. I’m not into confrontation. However, sometimes I get so angry that I feel like I need to hit something. It’s rare. But it happens. I’m sure it happens to you as well.

Now, let’s take out our anger in a more positive way.

Sometimes you get so angry, you attack the first thing you see…. and then you regret it. I’ve had an ex boyfriend break his cell phone in half because he was angry with me. Dumbass. I’ve known people to punch walls or break glasses etc. All you are left with is a broken or severely hurt hand and an expensive mess to clean.

Lovable Laurel

I offer you a solution. <— click that link. seriously.

You get to take out your aggression… and instead of a broken fist and broken glass… you get CANDY! I like candy!

It’s a win/win.

Stay tuned for Cut Throat every Weds on MTV 10/9c.

Born Again Virgin.

Bone Appetit

Picture an underground pirate dungeon in the middle of a quiet village in Prague, filled with human skulls and fire. It was as if it was created just for me.

I was down in the depths with my pirate crew. There were fire dancers and sword fights and mugs of beer as far as the eye could see. Just when the drums were really heating up, I was called out for being a witch. I had been accused of having sex with the devil. My own crew betrayed me and I was taken away. After a fire cleanse, Holy Water sprinkle, and a branding, I was born again a virgin. A miracle!

Click to Watch!

If you have been having sex with the devil and need to be renewed…. sorry, unless you have a plane ticket to Prague and a key to the dungeon, you are out of luck. You should just accept your fate as a witch and dress the part.

Things that go Bump in the night… in Prague

CLICK HERE TO WATCH

As you will soon learn on MTV’s Cut Throat challenge in Prague… things aren’t always as they seem.

I’ll let the story unfold to you as it will, but after living in this haunted castle, I really do believe in ghosts. Many things went bump in the night, and not just in the Gray team bedroom.

Medieval Shield And Sword Prop

There is something we were not supposed to know about. The house we now called home had been vacant for years before we invaded it with our drunken ignorant American ways. The audio equipment, the cameras, the lights, the Challenge cast…. We disturbed something. There were some things not meant to be seen and not meant to be messed with. We poked… we joked… and then we were given signs that we were not welcome there.

There is a room in that house that is considered sacred. This room is off limits… but a few of us didn’t listen. Two of the people who messed with the spirits of the house have already been eliminated in an intense Gulag. Coincidence?

I won’t reveal anything just yet, but keep your eyes wide and your mind open for the supernatural.

In the meantime… check out some rad props from FrightCatalog.com to turn your own place into a Haunted Mansion. (spirits of dead ghost girls are not included)

Inside the Gas Chamber.

Hazmat Adult Costume

While pondering my own life’s “bucket list”, I have concluded that running into a gas chamber and having to solve a mind boggling puzzle while in the midst of it would not be on that list.

However, you only live once. I can now check off “gas chamber” on my list of things I’ve done.

If you haven’t been in one, let me describe this glorious experience to you. First, if you wear contacts, take them off of they will melt into your skull. True story. Now, you can barely speak because your throat and nose is on fire with pins and needles. You can’t see because your eyes are burning off of your face. You can’t think because for god sakes you can’t breathe. But, oh yeah, throw in a puzzle on top of that and realize that if you don’t get it right, you have to go back in. Welcome to my world.

Gas Mask

As painful as that experience was. I have to say that I am thrilled that I can say I did it. In fact, if you are ever in the middle of Prague and competing for a shit ton of money, I’d say throw a keg party in the chamber and get down with your bad self.

But be weary, the more exposure to that stuff you get, the more likely you are to see these guys floating around you.

Be prepared. Get the mask.
