3 Step Mucota Scena Treatment – Headlines Hair Dressing

headlines hairdressing

Hello! I’m sorry for not blogging in such a long time unless I have to..

Anyway, I haven’t had my hair pampered since late March this year. My mom was free to help me toddler-sit Josaeus so I had a chance to visit Headlines!

Even thou I haven’t had anything done since the Dyna treatment in March, my hair condition isn’t as bad as before. So this time, I’m back to get my hair dyed and trimmed.

Told Linus, my stylist this round to decide on the colour and cut. I’m not too sure what suits me so I’ll leave it to him.

Here’s what my hair looks like Before anything was done(July 2015):

headlines hair dressing

I personally felt it was so much better than this(March 2015):

headlines hair dressing

If you’ve severely damaged hair, I would highly recommend Mucota Dyna Argan Oil Treatment at Headlines Hair Dressing. For 4 months, I did not change my usual hair routine(which is basically no routine to care for my hair) yet my hair still seem to be healthier than before.

Unfortunately, you’ve missed headline’s bring a friend and get to try Dyna Argan Oil Treatment at $198 each promo.

*Fret not, you can still mention my name “Maine” to get 10-30% discount off all services~

I chopped off at least 10cm off my mane and Linus chose Ash Brown for me.
[Ps the spideman sticker on the back of my phone belongs to Josaeus! A very sweet Lady from Jcube’s KFC gave it to him and he stuck it there.]

Linus noticed that my hair was still dry so he pampered my hair with 3 Step Mucota Scena Treatment. This treatment is a lot faster than Dyna But it obviously isn’t as intensive as Dyna. I didn’t have the luxury of time so 3 step Mucota Scena Treatment will do.

Here are the details and steps on the 3 Step Mucota Treatment:

Moisture base for treatment  (Adel)

Adel contains 4 kinds of ceramides, cholesterol and phytosphingosine included in natural ceramide to recreate same structure of hair’s intercellular lipid and improves the repair function.

Maltose-based, millet jelly (starch syrup element) and ceramide 1. 2. 3 6ll improves hair condition for treatment. With its internal permeation typed moisture holding elements, make hair soft and moist before next treatment.

Step 1

After shampooing, apply Adel focusing on med to hair ends and massage into it.

Rinse thoroughly with warm water

Hair repair (Brava)

Brava contains matrix keratin and fibril keratin which make up hair’s cortex as repair components for severe damage and amino acid which is CMC component for mild damage. Also, with mixing silk PPT which has cuticle repairing effect and pearl proteins (hydrolyzed conchiolin) handles various damages.

Contains amphiphilic reactive ceramide- like substance and 18 MEA-like active agent to penetrate ingredients of “Adel” and “Brava” into hair with these affinity. Also, penetrated reactive ceramide acts by binding to net-like structure to prevent repair component from flowing, then set it inside hair.

Step 2

After step 1, apply Brava to the entire damp hair focusing on med area to hair ends.

Comb it through hair


Protection of cuticle (Calore)

These 3 main elements of CMC reinforce CMC layer which consist of hydrophilic layer and lipophilic layer and improve damaged cuticle, control light defuse reflection and create lustrous hair base.

Superlipidure ( phospholipid polymer Nanosphere) makes 7 layered lamellar liquid crystal structure and pseudo-cuticle to protect the hair and regenerate hydrophobic surface to make hair smooth, silky and lusterous.

Step 3

with Brava on the hair, apply Calore to the entire hair focusing on med hair area to hair ends.

After applying, rinse thoroughly with warm water.

I love hair washes as there will definitely be head massages between the washes. Linus did a fantastic job! Thou I do get really ticklish behind the ears when he washes away the shampoo/treatment.

I’m done!

After:

The length doesn’t look too different as they are taken from different height and angle. Linus did a great job on shaping my hair and I love the colour! It’s hard to capture the actual photo due to different lighting. I tried adding filters to the after photo to get the actual colour.

How do you find it?

After-Before

I’ll be back for Dyna for my next appointment! Once again Thank you Jerry, Linus and of course Headlines Hair Dressing for Pampering my Hair!

New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen Powder



Hello! Remember late April this year I blogged about New Moon’s Inner Radiance Collagen Drink? This time I’m back with New Moon’s Collagen Powder.

new moon collagen powder

What’s the difference between New Moon’s Collagen drink and Powder?

DRINK
.Has Maqui Berry extracts that has high Anti-Oxidant Properties and also helps with Anti-Aging

.Great Taste of Tropical Fruits Flavour

. Has one of the highest Collagen Dosage in the market- 13000mg

POWDER
.Contains Ceramide & Hyaluronic Acid that has Anti-Aging and Moisturising effect

.Has Lactobacillus also known as Probiotics that Rejuvenates skin (How? Find out further down the post)

. Low Calories

 

 

Both New Moon’s Collagen Drink and Powder contains: Glutathione

As stated in my previous post for New Moon’s Collagen Drink, Glutathione is naturally presented and needed by the body. It should be present in each and every cell in the body. It plays a vital role in detoxifying our cells, removing heavy metals, toxins and free radicals. All of which can damage our cells and significantly damage the quality of our cells, including skin cells. Glutathione can help to improve the health of every cell in the body, particularly apparent in the skin, hair and nails. Giving people a radiant glow which is caused by healthy cells and reduced toxicity in the body. Age spots can also be minimized and prevented by enhancing Glutathione levels in the body.

Other ingredients such as:
Lactobacillus aka Probiotics aid in digestion of food and absorption of nutrients and minerals, which contribute to glowing and beautiful skin by permitting the body to assimilate skin friendly nutrients and fats. Probiotics strengthen our immune system by protecting against infectious and inflammatory disease. They contribute to our overall wellness, including skin health.

In additional to overall health benefits, probiotics provide specific benefits for skin disorders.  It is already been shown scientifically that probiotics play a role in skin heath, such as improving atopic dermatitis,  promoting the healing of scars and burns, rejuvenating the skin and strengthening the skin’s innate immunity.  For those acne sufferers who have unhealthy guts, supplementing with probiotics, particularly Lactobacillus acidophilus and the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, will often improve their acne.
Source: http://www.healthygutbugs.com/probiotics-best-anti-aging-elixir-for-your-skin/

Ceramides are a major component of our skin’s surface. They protect against moisture loss to keep skin youthful and supple.4 Functionally, ceramides support the skin’s matrix, keeping it firm.

However, with age, ceramide production declines, and skin begins to sag and wrinkle.

Scientists have found a way to extract ceramides from whole grain wheat that allows aging humans to nourish their skin’s structure from within. Research has shown that ceramides derived from wheat inhibit the elastase enzymes that destroy the skin’s elastin, which results in loss of flexibility and increased wrinkling.5 Natural ceramides provide continuous maintenance for skin and allow it to sustain its healthy protective function and vital moisture.

Hyaluronic Acid benefits soft tissue function, such as joint support, and combatting osteoarthritis. HA is responsible, in part, for the resilience of cartilage and its ability to resist compression. As one of the chief components of the extra-cellular matrix, Hyaluronan is an important component of articular cartilage1, where it is present as a coat around each cell (chondrocyte).

As we age, skin moisture can drop significantly, which makes the skin lose elasticity and expose the signs of aging on the skin. Hyaluronic acid plays a critical role in skin health with its unique ability to hold in moisture (1000 ml of water per gram of hyaluronic acid).

Hyaluronic acid is also a “smart nutrient” as it can adjust its moisture absorption rate based on the humidity—relative to the season and the climate.

All in all, I believe we should care for our skin from young age. Sadly for me, I only started really caring for my skin when I was in my late teens. I used to cycle a lot during 4-5pm without applying any sunscreen! That explains my pigmentations and aging skin.

new moon collagen powder

A simple bottle/sachet of Collagen drink/powder could help maintain your skin health in so many ways! Of course, you must also keep a balanced diet, exercise regularly and take good care of your skin( keep in clean,moisturise,apply sunscreen etc).

For convenience and taste wise, I definitely prefer the New Moon’s Inner Radiance Collagen Drink. It’s sweet, ready to drink and has super high dosage of collagen. On the other hand, I would choose New Moon’s Inner Radiance Collagen Powder for their benefits. As I have a combination/dry skin, the collagen powder has ceramide & hyaluronic acid which nourish and rejuvenates our skin/body from within.

Both New Moon Collagen drink and powder are equally good in their own ways. It depends on what your skin needs.

Since this post is focused on the collagen powder, I’ll share some of my personal experience. IMO, the powder cannot be taken with just plain water. The taste is just not right. I like to add it to a cup of chilled Ribena. I’ll usually take them straight after dinner as I didn’t want to brush my teeth again before I turn in. After taking the collagen powder for 5 nights consecutively, my face seems less oily. Moisture wise, no obvious changes yet. Firmness on my under eye area has very slight improvements. My nails feels harder, I’m serious! I have very thin and frail nails especially when their soaks in water for too long they tend to break. Not anymore, I can grow them to my desired length now.

*Do note that the collagen powder contains high amount of vitamin C, so avoid mixing them in hot >75˚C water/beverages.

If you’re keen to try out New Moon’s Inner Radiance Collagen Powder, good timing! It’s GSS now and I saw Watsons having discounts for it!

It’s available in all leading supermarkets, pharmacies and selected departmental stores thou.

New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen Drink

new moon inner radiance collagen
I believe almost everyone heard of the brand ‘New Moon’ from their popular health products such as Essence of Chicken & Bird’s Nest.

During exam periods, my parents would often buy boxes of Essence of Chicken for my brother and me to take before school. I must admit, the taste isn’t very yummy but it really did help to keep me alert and less restless especially when my exams were in the morning.

New Moon has launched their latest product, ‘New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen Drink’. The first collagen drink to be formulated and manufactured in Japan with one of the highest collagen content at 13,000mg with active whitening Properties! It’s also certified radiation free..

A few other bloggers and I were involved in some research & development process for New Moon’s Inner Radiance Collagen Drink last year.

We were given a skin analysis and a few cups of different flavoured collagen drink to taste test. At the end of our tasting, we got to pick our favourite flavour and was also given 1 month supply of collagen drink to try and see if there’s any improvement to our skin.

A month later, we had our after skin analysis and also got to choose the packaging design for the New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen Drink!

11112995_10153173391943965_3013919262136497255_n

Here are my results:

Before                        After 1 month
Elasticity 36               Elasticity 36

Collagen 25             Collagen 51

Moisture 41               Moisture 51

As seen, my Collagen level increased more than 50%. My skin did brighten up and also my pores seems smaller around the nose (not too sure if it’s the collagen drink though).

Moisture wise, I have always made sure my face is not dehydrated as dehydration leads to flaky skin, oily face and more pimples!  Applying moisturiser daily does maintain the skin moisture. As for those who hates the feeling of having a layer of moisturiser on top your face. A bottle of New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen Drink helps to boost skin hydration as well!

My skin Elasticity remained the same throughout my one month trial. Perhaps the elasticity of my face needs  a longer time to see improvements. However, everyone has benefitted differently from the collagen drink. For me, my collagen increases the most. While a fellow blogger Ju Ann’s Elasticity went from 15 to a whooping 41 and another fellow blogger Claire’s Moisture level went from 23 to 57!!

I used to think, why bother spending so much on beauty health products, I’m still young and my face seems alright. A few years down the road and I started to notice my face more. Large Pores, Pigmentations, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, dull skin and pimples! All on my face.. Bamb! I’m anxious, insecure and became very conscious about my look.

11088405_10153173391748965_2660475633851120618_n

I did try other collagen products previously and they work pretty fine for me. It’s just that I really hate that fishy AND milky taste. The combination is just so wrong and also it was in powder form so after a few days of ‘making’ it. I was just lazy to go thru all that hassle. Lastly, it’s not very cheap and doesn’t have anti aging/whitening properties. Who doesn’t want a better product right?

I’m only 22 and I have wrinkles? Gosh. My dark circles and eye bags are inherited so that couldn’t be saved unless I go for regular laser treatments which I obviously can’t afford. Oh well. Got to save those that can be saved then.

So what makes New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen Drink so different from other Collagen Products in the Market?

1. It’s ready to drink straight from the bottle, chilled or at room temp.

2. It has one of the highest collagen content at 13,000mg!

3. It promotes whitening with Glutathione.

4. Has Anti Aging properties from Maqui Berries (firms, renew and brightens)

5. Tropical Fruits taste, no fishy smell!

6. Formulated, Manufactured and Packed in Japan

7. Certified radiation free!

Glutathione is naturally presented and needed by the body. It should be present in each and every cell in the body. It plays a vital role in detoxifying our cells, removing heavy metals, toxins and free radicals. All of which can damage our cells and significantly damage the quality of our cells, including skin cells. Glutathione can help to improve the health of every cell in the body, particularly apparent in the skin, hair and nails. Giving people a radiant glow which is caused by healthy cells and reduced toxicity in the body. Age spots can also be minimized and prevented by enhancing Glutathione levels in the body.

Maqui Berry has the highest anti-oxidant properties based on ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity is a method of measuring antioxidant capacities in biological samples in vitro) value.

“Antioxidant compounds, such as the anthocyanins found in fresh maqui berries and maqui powder made from the dried berries, help protect your body from the toxic effects of free radicals, unstable atoms that are generated by things like cigarette smoke and pollution. Free radicals can cause DNA damage that can lead to age-related diseases and health problems.”

Once we hit 20 years old, our skin starts to age even faster! It is important to take care of our skin in different ways to delay the aging process.

Overview of my thoughts and experience with Atastic Nails [Ad]

So my 6 sponsored session with Atastic Manicure ends here(: Even though some things wasn’t as expected. I’m still glad I got to experience gelish for the first time with Atastic.

I tried almost all kinds of Manicure from normal gelish, gel extension, 3D acrylic, nail stickers & charms, hand drawn nail art. I also got to try different length and shapes for my nails.

atastic nails

10460703_10153113417943965_4580799704322635175_n

Even though I was sponsored, I would try to put myself in a paying customers’ point of view. For me, price, quality and location of the salon is very important. I wouldn’t want to pay so much just to travel all the way to the other side of Singapore just to get a lousy Manicure done.

11081302_10153113432868965_6734603009678070734_n

11091155_10153113432753965_4269505297179553421_n

I admit Atastic Manicure’s location isn’t exactly convenient when it’s raining. There isn’t a completely sheltered way to reach Blair house from the train station. However, the ambiance of the place made me ‘close an eye’. I love the comfy sofa chairs and the full drop glass windows.  The whole place was meant to be simple yet comfortable for customers themselves and their pockets.
atastic

So this explains why the prices at Atastic is affordable. Less capital for renovations = more affordability for customers! However, low prices at Atastic doesn’t mean they cut back on the quality of their products.

Atastic only uses AngelPro products which are:
about angelpro

It isn’t as damanging to the nails and doesn’t turn the nails yellow! However, it depends alot on the skill of your Manicurist. Some might file your nails too thinly that might cause your nail to break easily or even bleed from inside.

I personally recommend you to ask for Lina when you visit Atastic. She’s very serious about her work and make sure my nails are in good condition. My nails done by her lasts longer too! She’s also very creative in designs. 

This particular design was on Lina’s fingers when I saw it! She designed it herself (: The roses are hand drawn by her too!
nailss

All in all, Atastic is worth a try! They have very attractive packages that doesn’t cost a thousand for 10 sessions etc. Atastic’s packages are short, 3/5/10 sessions.

Thank you Atastic for this Amazing opportunity!

When I was kid, I used to love visiting relatives for our once a year family gathering. Besides the red packets,food and company. I really love the positive vibe everyone had!
My brother and I likes plucking those budding pussy willow at my granny’s place. As we get older, times like those changed but memories lasts forever.

Anyway, I brought Josaeus with me to Atastic yesterday to get my CNY nails done! Thankfully, he was obedient and didn’t move around too much.

this time round I had to have extensions done on 4 fingers as my nails broke. Also, I changed my nails shape to round and did hand drawn white roses! I haven’t tried atastic’s manicurists drawing skills so this is it.

I might just stick to round nails if I’m keeping any extensions on! it’s so convenient and doesn’t scratch or pull on my hair! I’m totally loving round nails now.

   If you’ve followed my instagram (mummymaine). You should know I’ve dyed my hair gradient red. It’s been so long since I went to a salon to get my hair done. < mummy commitments. So YES! I’m so happy I finally got to pamper myself after all these years.

A salons first impression is very important and I’m pretty sure Headlines dressing has that checked. Clean, simple yet elegant with full drop mirrors bringing the salon to a whole new level.

I really like the hair wash area, well lid and neatly arranged dyes and products.

Atastic Nails [Ad]

During my first visit to Atastic, there wasn’t many charms,stickers and designs available as Atastic was newly opened. This time round, there are at least 30 over charms designs and 100 over stickers for you to choose from.

I had a hard time deciding! Not forgetting that more nail design samples are available.

atastic nails

So, instead of the usual Christmas theme nail design, I chose a simple yet sweet and calming design this Season!

stripes,blings & My Melody stickers
mummymaine atastic both hands

This time, I didn’t get any nail extensions done and I did normal gelish instead of hardgel. I wanted to try out different kinds of manicures every session so I could share my thoughts and preference.

Previously, I had gel extensions and did hard gel. I don’t think hard gel suits me as its too thick for me to pick up stuffs my son dropped. (eg cards,coins,papers).

First visit
session 1 atastic

So I removed the extensions, used lesser blings and did normal gelish.

Second visit
mummymaine atastic

Choosing lighter shades this time round too! Melody isn’t something I go crazy over but I find the stickers matched the design I chose really well. Even after Christmas is over, my nails isn’t out of season! Yes, there’s little twin stars,hello kitty stickers too.

mummymaine atastic thumbs

I’d prefer gelish to hardgel for convenience. However, from all the washing and squeezing I do daily. Gelish could’nt last as long. it’ll be just fine for you if you don’t wash and squeeze your laundry that often. no worries!

Here’s a price list for your perusal :

The promotional package prices are so affordable with only 3 sessions instead of the usual 12 sessions which you have to pay so much at one go.

Atastic Manicures for your heart & soul [Ad]

atastic

 I’m happy to announce that Atastic Manicure Salon will be my official Nail Sponsor for the next few months(:

I haven’t had any Manicure done before as I felt I’m a very chor lor(rough) person. Besides that, Classic Manicures wouldn’t last and Gelish are costly to me.

However here at Atastic, they offer VERY reasonably cheap prices as their aim is to let  customers be able to pamper your nails on LONG term basis instead of those costly salons where you could only only get your nails fixed once every 2 months due to the price.

Friday was Atastic’s Grand Opening, Jerlinda and myself had the privilege to attend their opening and be the first to get our nails pampered!

When you hear Atastic, you’ll think the salon is very very Atas But no. Atastic was named to make your nails feel “Atas” instead of the Salon being Atas. The salon itself is pretty cozy. I specially love the arm chairs! I could lay there all day without having aches all over after my manicure. The clear glass panel might seem to get very warm during the afternoons, we were wrong! there wasn’t any east sun and you can look out for traffic during peak hours if you’re planning to go somewhere after (: *thumb ups*

Even before the salon officially open-ed, customers were already coming in!

The Salon uses “Angel Pro Gel” Polishes FYI, not some nameless unknown brand (:

I did Hard Gel with extensions as I have very short nail bed which looks extremely ugly.

say Twist to beautiful nails!

Ta Dah! My Beautiful Nails(: Sweet on one hand and punk on the other.

atastic

oh and if you’re wondering why my cuticle wasn’t nice. That’s because I didn’t get my cuticle done. I was in a hurry and couldn’t do it. So please just focus on the beautiful designs heh.

here’s the waiting area if you’re done and your girlfriends isn’t. I wouldn’t  mind waiting for hours if it’s this beautiful .

My current favourites [Cosmetics] + Tea & sweets

#1 darkness eyelash glue
eyelash glue

Am on my second tube already! Very convenient brush applicator and what’s best it’s not completely waterproof or the extremely sticky kind. I’ve tried afew brands but this is still my choice! It sticks very well yet doesn’t hurt your lashes. You know when you pull off your falsies and some of your real lashes got stuck in the falsies? I have no such issues with this one! Also one glue lasts at least 6-9months? Just make sure you don’t keep pumping or leaving it open.

Retailing in SaSa:$8.80

#2 alima pure luminous shimmer eye shadow (butteecream)
alima pure eyeshadow

Bought this from Luxola while its on sale and totally love it! Their product ingredients are all natural pure minerals from nature and most importantly cruelty free. Whats safer than applying their products on our faces right?

Retailing at Luxola.com: $22

#3 Marks&Spencer detox infusion tea
marks and spencers detox tea

If you’re having irregular bowel movements or am feeling very bloated. This tea works for you! Not to mention their packaging is very environmental friendly! You’ll understand when you open the box up:)

Retailing at Marks and Spencer :$6.90 for 2 boxes of 20bags each. *not sure if its still on promo though.

current favourites

#4 Vaseline

This is definitely a must have! Be it cuts or dry skin. Vaseline protects i sound like their spokesman now lol.

My small tub lasts supee long. Probably a year with me already and its still half full.

Got mine at kkh : $2.30? Very affordable.

#5 nature republic eyebrow pencil

Very disappointed. Nature republic isn’t available in Singapore anymore so I’ll always buy mine from JB.

Retailing at Citysquare JB : $14.95 riggit

#6 3ce full cover concealer

My daddy bought them for me when he’s in Korea! Thankfully 3ce hits singapore this June, there a outlet orchard central right now.

#7 Mentholatem lip Ice

Love it with sheer colour that looks very natural yet still keeps my lips moisturised.

Retailing in Watsons : $6.90? I Forgot.

#8 DRx tinted sunscreen

Slightly oily but lasts up to 7hours! Spf30 and no foundation needed

Retailing at DRx Clinic: $54? I forgot.

So yup, these are my current must have favourites what’s yours? I’m currently still searching for the perfect concealer. Email me if you’ve any to recommend!
