Mucota Argan Oil Treatment At Headlines Hair Dressing

 

headlines

I’m excited to share with you my experience at my new hair sponsor, Headlines Hair Dressing, which is located conveniently at China Square Central, #01-15. I’ve not had anything done to my hair for the longest time and it was obvious. My roots were showing, my hair was shapeless, my color was faded and not to mention that it felt dry and damaged.

So my hair stylist, Nicolas recommended that I try out their signature hair treatment, the MUCOTA Dyna Argan Oil treatment. Specially formulated with the oil extracted from Moroccan argan tree nuts, this treatment helps to straighten, repair and nourish hair damaged by frequent chemical treatments. It is also loved by the patrons of Headlines Hair Dressing because unlike other hair treatments (such as your usual keratin treatments) in the current market, the Dyna Argan Oil treatment is 100% formaldehyde-free, making it safe to use.

What I’ve Been Up To (Toddler Activities & Some Updates)

Firstly, I fell sick then Asher caught the flu bug from me. Since then, we were like sick little bobos for the past 2 weeks. Then just last weekend, we had the car to ourselves, so naturally we have been out almost everyday. So I have been busy busy busy and have not been blogging as often as I wanted to.

Here’s what I managed to do with Asher. I’m glad to finally announce that we have established a bedtime routine! I know, it is one of the fundamentals that should have been set up months ago but parenting is a journey of lifelong learning. So we are into our first week and hopefully, we will not break out of it.

We bring in a couple of books, some of them handpicked by the big boy himself. We indulge in some reading after he finishes his milk. It is a calming activity that helps him to relax and get ready for bed.

I’ve also DIYed a light box for him with materials from IKEA. However, I am still not totally satisfied with it. I think my box is too shallow and small but this would make do for the moment.

I was also at a launch event for Creme Simon, check out my blog post on it. And I just had a food tasting at Sakae Sushi this week. Yes, I tried all of the yummy stuff above… Now, this is just a teaser, so wait for my blog review, ok?

Guess that pretty much sums up what I’ve been up to of late. Oh and August, please be good to me.

Blue Green Peekaboo Streaks In My Hair

Finally, I got to try something different for my hair this time round. Because I am no longer working, I can now take on colors which were previously frowned upon. I was recommended bluish-green peekaboo streaks in the under layers of my hair. Top it off with copper highlights around the crown and a dark base. I thought it was just right, something new and yet subtle.

First, I had a trim, I was told by my stylist, Ricky that I would be given more layers to bring out the peekaboo effect of the blue streaks. Next, the selected areas were bleached so that the blue color would set in easily.

I was given copper highlights around the top area and a darker base to make the colors pop. I was so used to having different shades of brown or red hair since I started dyeing my hair so I was really excited and anticipated the outcome of this dye job.

After rinsing off the dye, my locks were given a treatment that contained Moroccan Oil.

Moroccan oil is really good for hair, it rejuvenates and restores shine while keeping it moisturized. This was especially pampering for my hair since it just underwent a chemical treatment.

Check out the end results, I was really pleased to see more than just one shade of blue. The warm, emerald green added more character to the whole look. I’m really happy with the outcome. Ricky also had temporary curls done for me and my hair looks so pretty.

Time For A Change

I was too busy to get my hair done the past few months and only managed to find time this weekend to visit Salon De Choix. In a way, I should be thankful that my hair grows quite slowly so my natural roots ain’t very obvious. But having brown hair all the time was getting boring for me, I decided that it was time for a change.

My new stylist is Ricky, he was thinking about some funky styles for me. Unfortunately, due to my client-facing job nature, I am not allowed to have anything that is too groovy. We eventually settled with red. Because red is bright and yet not too loud. It’s gorgeous and looks good on me. Plus, I love red on my hair.

So I had 3 different colors on my hair. The base was the same shade of brown I’m currently spotting, followed by a middle layer of red and then black for the bottom layers. Sounds interesting? Yes, this is a new technique which I’m experiencing for the first time.

Now, let me share a quick run through of the whole hair session process. Dye was applied to my hair and then left on for around 30mins. After this, I had it rinsed off. And yes, this is my favorite part of a pampering hair session at Salon De Choix. They have these incredible massager seats in the hair washing area are an indulgence for the tired out working mother I am. And that’s not all, the head massage by Ricky helped relieved some tension and made me enjoy my hair session even more.

Next, I had the argan oil hair mask treatment to moisturize my hair after the dye job. After the second rinse off, my hair was trimmed before it was blown dry.

For my color-treated hair, the stylist used the Kerastase Elixir Kultime to achieve rich texture in my colored locks, so that it reflects light and radiance. It’s lovely fragrance is inspired by Coco Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle. And as my hair has always been dry, the Rapid Repair Spray was used to provide more moisture. Now my hair feels so soft and smooth, I can run my fingers through without getting any tangles!

I am very pleased with the outcome. The colors looked great on their own but when put together, it created an even greater impact and the whole image is just simply gorgeous!

The top layer is brown, middle layer is red and the ends are black. Such contrasting colors which are edgy and yet still safe for work.

Back to Salon De Choix for A New Color!

I was so busy getting back on track that I didn’t have time to do my hair last month. So here I am again, back at Salon De Choix for a new hair color.

One of the current trends for hair color now is lighter shade on the top while the bottom is darker. It’s like the total opposite from previous seasons where there was much emphasis on flash or artificial hair color such as pastels or bright shades which you would never see in nature. Now, the trends are going back to nature, so picture this… all the healthy rich browns, reds, coppers and blondes.

So I got to try out this latest trend but in different colors… check it out:

So that’s why you see my hair is all bunched up in this below photo. It’s how my hair looks like after the top part of my hair is being separated in a four-leaf clover section.

 As usual, I had a trim and hair treatment done too. My hair feels so much tidier and lighter now. I used to not go for trims but now I understand why regular trims are so important. When your hair grows, it can grow out of shape or your ends get so damaged and causes your whole hair to look really just messy and unkempt.

I had Argan oil added into my hair mask. If you have read my previous blog entries on Argan oil, you would know that this is the liquid gold from Morocco. It not only saved my tummy from stretch marks but it is also good for the hair. You can restore strength and shine in your hair with this miracle oil. After I had this hair mask done, my hair felt silky smooth and had no tangles at all. To end things off, Elein applied Shu Uemura’s Art of Hair products for me. The nourishing fragrance had a lovely vanilla scent!

Ok so LOOK AT MY HAIR!!!

I’m loving it soooooo much!!!

I think I look refreshed and neater now.

My hair is much more manageable and healthy-looking.
