PHS Products & Scalp Treatment Service Review


IMG_1843

 

Here comes my favourite product to use – PHS Hair Science Pro Tonic fore Hair Loss Prevention! I noticed baby hair growing on my hairline when I was using this product on the second week. By the fourth week, I was done with this bottle and had a full head of hair so thick that my hair stylist had to do some layering to my hair to tame the mane ^^ Hair strands on my hair brush was reduced too! And the best part was, the cooling sensation on the scalp! Ah~ *happy smiles*

IMG_1842

This product cleanses the scalp very thoroughly and leaves my hair feeling very lightweight. Very ideal for those who have an oily scalp like I do! A conditioner is a must for anyone with colour treated hair. I needed a hair mask on my very dry hair ends whenever I use this, but that’s because my hair strands are indeed really dry to begin with :(

This is my hair after the entire treatment session! A complimentary hair styling will be done too! These are second day hair that you’re looking at :) I was amazed at how clean my scalp felt (I have oily scalp) and how voluminous my hair strands were! Best of all, the curls stayed in after a night of tossing and turning :) You pay for what you get, I guess. The treatment is on the pricier end but yet again, it did so much for my scalp and hair :)

IMG_1536

 

I love how my hair feels thick yet lightweight! My scalp didn’t itch as much as it did before, from all the hair dye sessions and all that I did previously. I’m planning on signing on a package with PHS Hair Science because the results were evident and haircare is indeed very important to upkeep too. Pampering myself just once a month! :)

Check them out today! They’re definitely the coolest haircare treatment centre out there in the market for all young working adults who want some TLC for their crowning glory :)

REVIEW: Hair Treatment Experience at Hair Xpect Studio!


IMG_1028

 

I was very excited to be invited to Xpect studio for a hair treatment session as I’ve heard and seen many beautiful hairstyles done for my fellow beauty blogger friends by this particular hair salon. Xpect Studio is a reputable local hair and beauty salon that has highly skilled hairstylists with a minimum of 5 years of experience each :) I was attended by Yvonne, the salon manager of Xpect Studio Orchard International Building :)

As I’d several rounds of bleaching done to get my highlights in, Yvonne recommended Neoprocess AF for my hair treatment. This set consists of ingredients such as ceramide and amino acids to strengthen the cortex of each hair strand to revive weak and thin hair back to its original state of bouncy, shiny hair.

 

IMG_1035

 

The entire treatment was done in about 1.5 hours, after which Yvonne stepped in to help trim an inch off my hair ends since they’re quite damaged. The scalp massage done during the hair wash segment was amazing and it went on for a solid 15 mins or so! I felt so relaxed and happy that I was in good hands during my entire time at Xpect Studio.

 

IMG_1044

 

Photo with Yvonne, Salon Manager of Xpect Studio! LOOK AT MY HAIR! I’d only do a perm like this once my hair strands are able to take on chemical processing. It’d take a few months of hair treatments but hey, that beats having hay-dry hair right? :) The service at Xpect was warm and hospitable, with every staff having the health of your hair in mind first before your requests. I like this aspect of how they handle each customer’s hair because many salons will just push for their chemical services to drive daily sales. #pastexperience I even bought a Shiseido Powder Hair Spray recommended by Yvonne while I was there as it’s one of the best lightweight setting sprays I’ve ever used. Shiseido does make the best asian hair products IMHO :)

All in all, I spent the whole Thursday in a really jolly mood because a great hair day makes every girl smile, doesn’t it? :)

Head down to Xpect Studio now and enjoy their current promotions! really value-for-money! :)

this shampoo is one of my favourites in the entire series of phyto shampoo selections. my mum has been using phyto products for over a year, so naturally, i got hooked on to trying them out as well!

IMG_6052

there’s a big opening as phyto’s shampoos are very liquid and watery as they don’t contain any silicone or unnecessary chemical agents to make it very foamy, thus the absence of the sticky, gooey consistency in the formula.

IMG_6054

this is a weekly treatment for 3 months! I’m on my 3rd bottle this week and have seen am improvement in my scalp condition! I’ve got dry scalp, so it does itch throughout the day, though there’s no dandruff whatsoever. This product does help to reduce inflammation on my scalp too, so there’re now less breakouts on my scalp.

my hair's gotten really healthy after 2 weeks of using all the mentioned products! :)

HAIR COLOUR: L’Oreal Paris Excellence Fashion Luxurious Golds Collection Review


ORED1205_92_Masters DP Preference_VA.indd

There is a reason why golden brown is one of the most popular shade of hair color among Singapore women. A subtle yet refreshing way to jazz up any hairstyle, golden brown is extremely versatile and suitable for women of all personalities. Whether you are going for the classy, sophisticated look or a more edgy, androgynous look, L’Oréal Paris Excellence Fashion in Luxurious Golds brings you two glamorous golden shades specially designed to complement Asian skin and eyes.

Worried about damaging your hair from coloring? L’Oréal Paris Excellence Fashion promises an intense color pay-off with spectacular shine while providing utmost care to your precious tresses with its triple care formula. Hot on the heels of the well-received Daring Reds and Exquisite Browns collections launched earlier this year, the Luxurious Golds collection is the latest installment in the L’Oréal Paris Excellence Fashion range, offering even more choices for the girls who love to change up their looks for an instant glamour.

With a unique formula that provides long-lasting, vibrant color, Excellence Fashion is infused with:

1. Hi-Shine Complex: For spectacular brilliance and shine

2. Hi-Intensity Pigments: For rich and intense color

3. Triple-Care Formula (Micro-Cera Essence + Amino Acid + Collagen): To protect, strengthen & nourish

hair while coloring so hair stays strong & silky-soft

Excellence Fashion Gold 6.13 Golden Nude Brown

6.13 Golden Nude Brown, $18.90
Rich golden brown that complements most Asian skin tones

Excellence Fashion Gold 5.13 Ashy Nude Brown

5.13 Ashy Nude Brown, $18.90
A unique Ash brown that illuminates the skin

Finding the right shade of gold is a tricky affair. Fair skin tones can experiment with brighter and bolder

blondes, as seen on Miley Cyrus and Anne Hathaway, while medium and Asian skin tones should follow

the lead of Blake Lively and stick to warmer tones such as Excellence Fashion’s Golden Nude Brown as

lighter blondes could drain your complexion. For cooler skin tones, stick to ash colors such as Excellence

Fashion’s Ashy Nude Brown that illuminates the skin.

Application

Get a vibrant and glamorous luxurious golden brown hair in just 4 easy steps!

Step 1: Apply hair serum to protect your hair from potential damages

Step 2: Mix Protective Crème Colorant and Crème Developer together to form hair dye

Step 3: Apply mixture generously on hair and leave on for at least 35 minutes

Step 4: Wash your hair with a color-care shampoo and conditioner

Aftercare

To ensure long-lasting color and shine, use L’Oréal Paris Hair Expertise EverPure, a professional range

comprising shampoo, conditioner and treatment specially formulated for color-treated hair. The 100%

sulfate-free formula cleanses and strengthens, while retaining the hair’s natural oils and liberates the

scalp from any irritation. With the addition of UVA and UVB filters in the conditioner and masques, hair

is protected from the sun’s destructive rays. The result? Healthy strong hair that is free from frizz,

allowing the new hair color to shine through.

Availability

The Luxurious Golds collection (2 shades) will be available from August 2013 onwards at Watsons,

Guardian, major supermarkets and hypermarkets and selected departmental stores.

the before. do note that my dark hair is impossible to dye over as it's been coloured a very dark brown colour. the virgin hair near the roots were readily tinted ash brown though.

My objective was to get a neutral, cooler tone of ash brown onto my sort-of yellowish brown hair colour on my bleached portions of my hair. I know that from the photos, it kinda looks like i used the Golden Nude Brown instead of the Ash Nude Brown. But I’m confident that the ash tones will show up more after about 10 washes or so. I like the fact that my hair was smooth and silky even after dyeing my hair and honestly, my hair felt smoother than how it felt prior to the dye! I’ve used the ones from the red collection before and have to say that among many of the colour dyes out there, this series from loreal will always be my first choice because it works amazingly well on virgin, completely untouched, undyed hair. So if you have never had a hair dye job and wanna get some colour in, the ones from this series will definitely give you a stronger colour payoff. For my dark hair, it’s been dyed a very dark colour before, so it’s impossible to reverse it much. Just tints of it here and there. I like the uneven colour tones in my hair cos it gives more dimension when i curl and teeze my hair into different hairdos. It’s a personal thing, I guess. I never like to be conventional :)

1 box wasn’t that quite enough for my hair that’s past my shoulders, so ladies with longer than the normal medium length hair, please do yourself a favor by buying 2 boxes! It’ll be worth your money when you get pretty hair that looks gorgeous all day long ^^

Stay beautiful!

xoxo,

Yvette

L’Oréal Paris Hair Expertise: Join the Sulfate-Free Revolution!


EverStrong Series. I've tried this series before and found it to be best suited for normal hair that is thin but needs added nutrients to strengthen the hair strands. Those with coloured hair will find this range lacking in adding in shine and oils to the processed hairs.

Hair Expertise invites customers to trade in their sulfate-containing hair care products – even empty bottles – for a Hair Expertise Shampoo.

Myth: Sudsy shampoos are better at cleaning the scalp.

Fact: They don’t. Instead, rich foamy shampoos can lead to unhealthy tresses.

The culprit? Sulfates, the foaming agent found in countless hair care products. This chemical detergent can aggravate scalps and damage hair fiber. Healthy hair becomes dry and hair colour becomes dull. Hair fibers become weak from lack of natural essential oils and eventually break. Those with sensitive scalps, especially, are susceptible to flaking and dryness, which can cause itchiness and scalp acne.

Sulfates = Harsh Detergents

Delicate hair strands and sensitive scalps easily fall victim to sulfates, especially since the main aim of these detergents are to completely encapsulate dirt and all oils, including the good ones so that water can wash it away. In fact, sulfates are actually used as the baseline standard irritant for sensitive skin, meaning that all other irritants to the skin are tested against it.

Sulfates can be absorbed through the hair fiber, skin and scalp, and the problem with sulfates lie in the fact that it is very difficult to completely remove foaming agents even after washing the hair, leading to a growing amount of sulfate deposit on the hair and scalp. This is exacerbated by the foam it produces which coats the scalp and hair, leading to a higher chance of depositing its particles in every part of your hair.

Sulfate-Free Can Be High-Performance 

L’Oréal Paris, recognized by women worldwide as the leading expert in hair care, zeroed in quickly on the problem by providing premium sulfate-free options for consumers. L’Oréal Paris Hair Expertise is one of the first affordable, high-quality ranges with a 100 per cent sulfate-free ingredient list, allowing this revolutionary hair care system to become the educator of the masses in terms of the benefits of sulfate-free ingredients in their hair care. In a research conducted by L’Oréal Paris and Republic Polytechnic’s Centre for Innovation and Enterprise, the effectiveness of the

L’Oréal Paris Hair Expertise system was tested against both traditional mass non-conditioning shampoos and a high-end Salon brand system containing shampoo, conditioner and hair mask.

This qualitative research focused on smoothness and detangling – the top hair concerns for Singaporean women. The results showed that the L’Oréal Paris Hair Expertise system performed 16 times better than the non-conditioning shampoo and two times better than the expensive salon brand, at an average of 7.72 seconds, with more consistent results than the other two.
