A day as a HDB Taitai Wannabe

Today was a great, well-spent day where I got to run my errands and best of all, didn’t have to go to work. (OK, so I took leave). Anyway,Mocha had to go to the groomers and so did his mummy.

And where else would I head to but Salon De Choix, conveniently located at Winsland House 1. If you are driving, then you can park at the Orchard Central car park which offers one of the cheapest parking fees in town.

Some camhoring before heading to the salon… 

I just had my hair colored a month back and the roots ain’t really showing. So I settled for a head massage & hair treatment today. The head massage included a treatment for sensitive scalp. All these chemical treatments like dyeing my hair have left my scalp rather red, angry-looking and ultra sensitive, so it was time to give it some good old loving. While the hair treatment nourished my tresses so that they were smooth and healthy-looking again.

The massage was so pampering, I nearly dozed off. After the massage from the hair oil with rose extract, I had my hair washed. And the massage that followed during the hair wash was so relaxing, I think I did really fall asleep for awhile.

The shampoo used (pictured above) was also specially suited for sensitive scalp. After the wash, I had a solution sprayed onto my scalp to soothe it. This was followed by the hair treatment with the Mythic Oil (as shown above).  Then followed by a 2nd hair wash to rinse off.

Finishing up, I had my hair styled into lovely curls, complete with the sweet-smelling Kerastase Elixir Ultime serum.

[REVIEW] Bebeco Skin Care Range from Korea

A Beauty Affair is proud to share with her readers about another HOT Korean brand, Bebeco, that is currently available in Singapore. Did you know what does the brand name Bebeco stands for?
Well, I certainly didn’t and I thought that this was rather cute.

Bebeco = “BEtter BEauty COsmetic”

Bebeco carries a wide variety of skin care products that are highly popular in Korea and now, even in Singapore. Their range of skincare also incorporates natural ingredients such as Orange Vitamins and Plant Hormone in their skin care range. Sounds interesting, doesn’t it?

Thanks to Bebeco, I was given a number of products to try out. I told them about my skin concerns; blackheads, uneven skin tone and dryness on the cheeks. And I was introduced to this skincare regime which is like a DIY Facial Routine. Something one can try at home and save money at the same time instead of splurging hundreds at facial salons.

The DIY Facial Routine will allow one to achieve an effect that is similar to what one gets at the facial salon.
It consists of the following products:

Step 1: Real Perfect Cleansing Gel
Step 2: Plant Vita Foam Cleanser
Step 3: Perfect Peeling Gel
Step 4: Strawberry Yogurt Mask Pack

[REVIEW] Essential Makes Me A Hair-py Girl

The geniuses at Kao have come up with a new range of damage care hair products that have made me a very HAIR-py girl. Essential Damage Care promises to nourish & care for your damaged hair, even up to the last 15cm of it. Many trendy ladies in Singapore have damaged hair due to the constant chemical-treatments we make our hair put up with for the sake of looking good. Think rebonding, perming & dyeing…. But how can one look gorgeous if the end result will only be dry & badly damaged hair? Fried hair is so not sexy. Did you know that even regular styling and blow-drying will cause damage to hair?

Most of us would be no stranger to miserable hair issues such as split-ends, tangles and brittle hair. We may even resort to cutting off our hair which we have painstakingly tried to grow out for the past year just to get rid the damaged portions. But ladies plagued with such HAIR ISSUES, fret not! As Kao’s Essential range of Damage Care products will fix this problem for you!

They have two range of products depending on the hair finish you prefer:

Nuance Airy : For an Airy & Bouncy Look
Rich Premier : For a Smooth & Manageable Look

Thanks to the blogger campaign by Kao & The Sample Store , I was given both ranges to try out :)
Each range consists of a Shampoo, Conditioner, Treatment, Hair Mask & Serum.

Do you have dry, damaged hair but oily scalp? [ Shampoo + Hair Mask Review ]

I’m cursed with dry, damaged hair but with an oily scalp. So most products I use will conflict with each other. Previously, I was trying out L’Oreal’s Elseve Damage Care shampoo for colored and damaged hair but it was too rich and ended up giving me flaky scalp or what’s more commonly known as dandruff.


The culprit – too nourishing for my scalp?


Rated: .5

I guess this would have worked well for those plauged with just dry and damaged hair.
Unfortunately, it did not work for me but still kudos for its effort, as it really moisturizes the hair tips and roots.
Just alittle too much for me though…

So I stopped using that and bought the Head & Shoulders Anti-dandruff shampoo targeted at getting rid of all the flakiness.

Rated:

But it was too drying for my headful of ‘already close to resembling hay’ hair.
However, I must really give credit to the product for it worked in getting rid of the flakes though the dryness was causing my hair to tangle badly.

But I was not ready to give it up yet. Hence, instead of using a conditioner with it, I used the Sunsilk damaged hair reconstruction hair mask instead. And this is REALLY GOOD!!!

Rated:

After washing my hair and letting it dry naturally on its own without using the hair mask would only result in what would resemble an abandoned bird nest after a volcanic eruption. Hair becomes so poofy aka “pong pong” and I totally hate it.

But with the hair mask, my hair is softer and more manageable. It settles down without much effort after drying naturally. Best of all, I saw it going for S$5.50 only at CK Department Store. I bet Ocean or those stores that sell cheaper toiletries at Chinatown are selling around that price too.

And the tub is gonna last you for a long while since a little really goes a long way.
I don’t know what I would be doing without it!
