I got my hair darkened not too long ago at my trusted salon Shunji Matsuo 313. I went from this
As some of you guys may know, I visited Maldives for a week for my "second" honeymoon. I left for Maldives looking like this.
Silky smooth hair and tangle free hair. I'm pretty blessed honestly when it comes to my hair. It's naturally almost straight and in good condition. Although I am born with fine hair (who doesn't love a bit more volume, won't they?!), I love the fact that my hair is pretty smooth!
But after 7 days of the sea. Snorkeling, swimming and diving every single day. Needless to say, my hair soon looked like it had an abundance of sea salt spray in it.
You've probably read about my preparation for CNY. I've wrote about my Alice in Wonderland nails done at Milly's. I've also 'settled' shopping for Chinese New Year.
Aside from that, just two days ago, I visited Caely at Shunji Matsuo 313. I actually had wanted to just style my hair for my birthday dinner.
My hair was this shade after fading a bit. I honestly like this shade of brown. But after visiting Caely, she suggested I colour my hair to touch up my roots.
As usual, I told her 'anything'. I am comfortable leaving it up to her to decide. So far, everything that she has chosen for me, I love it! I just didn't want red hair again. Though red is sibeh huat for Chinese New Year LOL
I seem to be getting a reputation at work. Colleagues have said that they can't keep track of my hair colour. LOL
Remember my previous blog post about my chilli red and red violet hair? This time, I decided I didn't want my hair that red anymore.
I came in looking like that.
Yes, I know. Extremely itchy backside of me. I visited Caely at Shunji Matsuo at 313 Somerset and she suggested I lightened my hair first and to come back later for a darker colour if I wasn't comfortable with it.
She warned me that it would get lighter after a few weeks.
Instead of bleaching, she lightened it. Lightening is a less harsher method but of course, it can't go as super blonde unless you bleach it.
She topped it off with a reddish brown colour which I love!
And styled for me that day. Me love!
And as mentioned by Caely, the colour soon lightened. I think this is my closest to blonde so far? Love it! Unfortunately I felt it was a tad too blonde for work so I went back to Caely to darken it. SUPER PAISEH ABOUT IT MAN!
Trying out a darker mahogany brown this time so that the colour will fade to brown (instead of blonde) after a while.
Despite my fickleness, the numerous hair colours and lightening, my hair is still extremely soft because Caely used a Conditioner Colour which does not contain ammonia and is considered as a gloss colour. Thus shinier hair!
My colleague even mentioned my hair looks even more healthier now! LOL
Anyway, If you like any of my hair colours, do show Caely these pics to get the colours! Easier to show her!
