Going Red with Salon De Choix

Just before I head to the GC, I went to Salon De Choix to get a new coat of color for my hair.

Looking at my hair, of course I need a new color before heading for my holiday! 😛

After much consideration, I’ve decided to go red with a tinge of violet hue! Check out the red dye that is going to go on my hair!

Before starting the hair dyeing process, my stylist uses this Scalp Protection Mask on my scalp as it tends to get sensitive.

Massaging it into the scalp before applying the hair dye. This can be added on for just $10!

Check out the redness of the dye after application! It is really intense!

Standard SOP after coloring, Hair treatment time!! My monthly dosage of hair mask infused with Mythic Oil to make the hair silky smooth!

Can you see the hues of red with violet tones? Indeed this is a darker color for the hair but it’s so pretty!! Makes me look fairer too!

20130528-170628.jpg

Here’s how it looks after being blown dry. It’s a lovely shade of red brown with violet hues. Also if you noticed the ends are of different tones as it was bleached there. So I kind of got a two tone red.

More brown on the top but more red at the ends.

I am loving how it shows different hues at different angles. The red is really gorgeous, and I think I will be sticking to this color for awhile.

20130528-170649.jpg

Due to the previous bleached end, I get to have a two tone red. The red at the ends have now faded to a lighter red after a couple of washes but still as pretty!

I definitely will want to go under the sun more with this hair color. Simply because the color looks amazing under sunlight! Check this out!!

This is also a hair color that I wanted last time but never really managed to achieve.

Scalp and Hair Treatment @ Salon De Choix

Went back to Salon De Choix last week for treatments only as I wanted to give my hair a break.

Note my hair, it is not that bad la but it’s so messy!!!

20130503-140022.jpg

My stylist started me on the scalp treatment where this TeaTree essential oil is being used to massage my scalp. The sensation is super shiok I tell you. You will feel this cool, minty feel on the scalp during the massage. This essential oil helps to kill bacteria in our scalp leaving a clean and airy feeling. Basically when the same feeling you get when your scalp is not oily. 😛

20130503-140029.jpg

Here’s Abby massaging the oil into my scalp. Her massaging skills and hair washing skills is awesome ok. I always enjoy my hair wash by her.

20130503-140035.jpg

After treating the scalp, its time to nourish the hair itself with Mythic Oil mixed into the hair mask. This treatment will leave the hair silky smooth~

20130503-140042.jpg

 

I can’t see a thing with bangs that long! Time for a trim! But look at the hair condition now! Smooth shiny hair!!

20130503-140054.jpg

This time round, my stylist uses Shu Uemura Art of Hair Oil in Cream and Nourishing Fragrance with Oil Pearls on my hair. This makes the hair smooth after blow drying and nourishes it. Smells awesome too!

20130503-140102.jpg

Let’s take a look at the back of my hair. Straight, smooth hair which I loves. I have natural waves and my hair often gets into this messy mess if I don’t do anything. I really like straight hair with wavy ends like this.

20130503-140110.jpg

I did not do anything to my hair color as me and my stylist decided that this current color is pretty and unique enough to keep for another month. It’s like this ashy green blonde color that really contrasts well with the brown. I am considering to go for a change before I go for my Gold Coast trip and I’m still thinking. My stylist suggested red since I’ve not gone red during the time I’m with Salon De Choix but than red is a difficult color to work with. Thinking still, any suggestions? 😛

20130503-140115.jpg

Here’s a closer look at how my hair color is and how smooth and healthy it is.

20130503-140120.jpg

Now now, don’t I look so much better with smooth, straight, neat hair like this? Bangs makes me look younger too. 😛 Thanks to my stylist, always making my hair look great when I leave the salon. And I am proud to say that it’s still looking good when it’s more then a week already!

Hair Color Magic @ Salon De Choix

It’s time to pamper my hair over at Salon De Choix once again. Every single time I visit Salon De Choix, I’m excited yet at ease cause I know my hair is in good hands.

For hair like mine, bleached tend to be dry and lazy me is not hardworking enough to put hair mask twice a week. If only hair mask is as easy as doing sheet masks.

This is what happens, plus the green faded making the ends seems drier then it actually is. But I don’t have split ends so I guess my hair ain’t that bad. 😛

So this time round I decided to just go for 1 color as in 1 single hair dye for the whole head as per my usual dual color as I wanted my hair to rest. After discussion with my stylist Elein, we decided to go for a Deep Ash Blonde (12.11 Color code) for the whole head as I wanted an ashy color. I was also told by Elein that the bleach part of my hair will turn into an ashy blueish grey. Somehow it sounds really cool to me so I give the green light to go ahead with the process!

I had to first bleach off my remaining green before doing the color. And as usual, steaming helps speed up the process of coloring, and also allows the hair to absorb the dye more! Apparently, my hair can take in color quite well. Seeing the fact that most of my crazy colors can last me more then a month.

Wash off after the coloring and look at that!! It’s a nice greyish blue!! I don’t think I’ve seen anyone with this color. Happy cause I like to be unique.

And of course, we must not forget to do treatment for our hair! It is recommended to do treatment at least once a month! Elein added two types of Mythic Oil to the hair mask for added moisture and shine!

After treatment, my hair ends was trimmed a little and blown dry and viola! I can has gorgeous hair again!

Here’s a before and after photo to show you the awesome things Elein do to my hair. Trimmed my hair to get back the shape, treatment to smooth down the tresses and a new coat of color to freshen up the hair! Plus can you believe the blue is obtain from the same dye that give me the nice ashy brown color for the top part of my hair?

The greyish blue has a slight greenish tint to it from my previous color. Elein told me that this color can only be obtained from clashing colors. Example, ashy tone dye on bleached hair with green dye on it. So if you happened to have green hair like me, you might be able to achieve similar effects.

Also trimmed my bangs as I’ve deiced to let it grow sideways. It’s really a hassle to keep bangs so time for a change! Plus it’s been a while since I had side fringe. XD

Closer look at the hair color. Grey, blue and a little green highlight. I like that I’m unique. XD

This is how the blue looks like when damp. Too pretty that I can’t believe it’s my hair! Hee~

Fifty Shades of Green by Salon De Choix

It’s time to get a new color for CNY at Salon De Choix.

After having purple hair for 2 months plus, I’m not sure what color to go for. Discussed with Elein and we decided to go for green hair! I’ve also picked out a greenish tone brown base to compliment the green!

The swatch of the base color I choose looks really pretty!!

Did a quick bleaching to get the purple out.

Back to blonde for approximately an hour.

Cause I’m going to have green on!

Fast forward the washing and all and tadah! My new green hair!! Which as per the title, I named it the Fifty Shades of Green.

Before I go on, check out this awesome promotion they are running!!

Another promotion is that you simply have to spend $200 on hair services to receive either a free shampoo or hair mask. While stocks lasts.

Green hair looks really nice and makes me fairer then I already am. 😛

I love how vibrant it is yet I could make it look subtle by keeping my hair to the back.

Here’s the perfect example of keeping things subtle. I also very much prefer this way of dyeing the hair as you can see it looks really natural. The dark hair and the colored hair blends together perfectly and is not like a line from mid way down.

This is darker in tone if you noticed and is after touching up. It will slowly fade into the lighter shade in the photos above. This darker tone is like a seafoam green! Pretty!!

Here’s a closer look at the vibrant color~

Once again, thanks Elein for giving me gorgeous hair again!!

Hair Pampering At Salon De Choix

It’s time for pampering session at Salon De Choix once more!! This time I’m getting a treatment done, trimming my bangs which got long pretty fast and touching up my purple ends.

Hair washed and ready for treatment~

The treatment that I’m doing this time round focusing on nourishing and strengthening the hair!

Tools needed for my hair treatment. Bowl to heat up the hair mask, special thermal hair mask, essence with booster.

I’ve been on Kerastase hair treatment since I’m with Salon De Choix, and this is the reason for my soft and healthy looking colored hair!

See the booster in action! The drop of booster is mixed with the essence before it’s applied on.

Having a head massage by Abby while Elein prepares the essence. This is life. 😛

The hair mask that is used this time round is a special thermal mask that works on heat. Meaning it will only work when heated. This is how the mask looks like before heating.

After “cooking” the mask, it turns into a creamy, smooth texture and is white instead of yellowish.

Fast forward to after treatment and touching up of color while I’m laying in the comfy massage chair to wash my hair. This is Elein curling my hair by using this heated hair comb from Korea. See how long my bangs have grown!

Bangs suit me really well! Not only I say one hor. 😛 It’s worth the regular trim!

It’s Kerastase Elixir Ultime time! This time round I’m using the green one which is meant for damaged hair. Not that my hair is damaged but like I say, prevention is always better!

I really love this color combination of my hair!!

I really recommend this kind of combination if you’re allowed to have subtle crazy hair colors! 😛 It is not too loud, the perfect way to have unique colors in your hair!

Thanks Elein for making my hair so pretty each time!

Nice hair must take Selca!! 😛

How my hair look on normal days after blow drying~ Sometimes I just like to mess up my bangs a little to let my forehead breathe. 😛 I realized the I can has different looks depending on how I comb my bangs! Yay to having bangs! Hee~
