As you guys may know, my hair has been under the watchful eye of Caely Tham. She has taken care of my colours, treatments and cuts for years now and she has seen the ups and downs.

After I gave birth to Davina, I visited Caely 2 months after my confinement. I bemoaned to her about my postnatal hair state. Like with Aidan, the condition of the hair became unruly, rough and dry at the ends. Soon, postnatal hairloss would start. Oh my tian.

I came to Caely with disheveled hair which was pretty much entangled despite putting on hair oil and combing my hair.

Caely recommended Leekaja's in-house keratin treatment called the Cinderella treatment. It is a keratin treatment alongside keratin ironing. The treatment contains an unique blend of organic aloe vera and onion, which helps make up moisturising ingredients to help repair the hair before sealing in the keratin in.

Not only is it suitable for bleached hair, it also does not give ramrod straight effects. In fact, it looks more a good blow-dry or soft rebonding.

The best thing? It lasts for 2 months. All mamas should go for this treatment, who has time to style your hair when busy with the kids? This treatment ensures the most fuss free approach! I also opted for a trim to keep things simple. Here's the final results!

I love the final result! I spend less than 5 minutes on my hair now and it looks blowdried all the time!

As some of you guys may know, I have a regular hairstylist Caely Tham. She has taken care of my hair for about 4 years now and I'm very comfortable with her. Especially so when she had to deal with my weird hair during pregnancy and postnatal hair loss.

FYI, mums go thru lots of hair changes during and after pregnancy. The texture and condition all changes. Caely has been wonderful throughout and has taken good care of my hair.

When she first told me that she was moving to Leekaja Beauty Salon, I was relieved to find out that it was located nearby. (I was so scared that she will move to ulu pandan or something! HHAHA)

Leekaja Beauty Salon is conveniently located at Mandarin Gallery, a stone's throw away from Caely's previous salon.

I was wowed when I first arrived at Leekaja. It was HUGE. Leekaja is much bigger than most salons that I have visited and they offer a wide range of beauty services thus the name Leekaja Beauty Salon. It is basically a Korean one-stop beauty solution salon.

Some of the services that they provide are hairstyling, nail, eyelash, makeup and barber services. But fret not, their prices are very competitive!

I felt very pampered when I arrived at Leekaja. I was offered a light snack and refreshment just incase I was peckish and thirsty.

I was quite shy to see Caely as it had been quite some time since I visited her. My hair was a mess and I hadn't taken care of my roots as regular as I should.

At that time I was also in the early stages of my pregnancy. I whispered to Caely and after all the congratulations and hugs, she whisked me away to a private area away from all the chemical smells.

We discussed options and decided to go for a healthier hair colour without touching my roots alongside the Tokio Inkarami Hair Treatment to tame my very unruly hair.

Caely shared that the Tokio Inkarami Hair Treatment helps to restore damaged hair to healthy hair by an amazing hair repair strength of up to 140%! The treatment has also a Nobel Prize Ingredient called Fullerene which is the world's strongest anti-oxidant to fight aging and humidity!

The Tokio Inkarami Hair Treatment consists of a few steps to help increase the supply of keratin, to make the hair stronger and also increases the supply of CMC & Ceramide 2 to help regain silkyness and shine and lastly to help repair the hair cuticles.

I also brought home the Tokio IE Home Care products which helps to increase keratin protein buildup in my hair while protecting my cuticle from external stresses and improves muster and smoothness.

Even after bleaching my hair so often, my hair is strong and healthy! All thanks to the wonderful hands of Caely and using the Tokio Inkarami products!

This is the final outcome after my experience at Leekaja Beauty Salon. Caely refreshed my colour without touching my roots. She gave me a lovely dark colour coupled with some bits purple and pink.

Although I'm a mother now, doesn't mean I'm not hiao. LOL.

How has your preparation been? I'm all prepared on the hiao front like clothes, hair, nails but my house is still not clean!

Panicking a bit actually. Last few days to tidy up the mess!

On the hiao-front, I've gotten my hair and nails done! A few weeks ago, I visited Caely, my stylist from Shunji Matsuo 313. I super buay tahan my outgrown roots and wanted to touch up my hair. She bleached my roots and gave me a darker colour so that my whole hair colour would be even-ed out rather than be patchy. It will lighten in time and then it's time to play with colour again. WOOHOO!

Here's the end result!

She had also customised a Shu Uemura Master Ceremony Treatment to help strengthen my hair and also reduce dryness from bleaching.

If you look at my hair now, you will never guess that it has been bleached plenty of times within 6 months and coloured over and over again. Healthy hair yo!

Feel free to show Caely any of my pics if you are looking to get this colour too! And as usual, when you quote my name Nadia or nick nadnut, you'll enjoy 10% off chemical services!

I then visited Milly's at the Suntec City branch to get my nails pampered. Went through a classic manicure and pedicure where my cuticles were trimmed and had some lovely nail art! This time, I opted for gelish with a bright and cutesy design of chicks, eggs and hearts!

As some of you guys may know, I got pregnant last year and gave birth early this year. After giving birth, I was horrified when I saw the increase in my hair fall. Apparently I was not immune to the dreaded postnatal hair loss. I checked with my fellow mummy group and most of them also faced postnatal hair loss, even the youngest which is years younger than me! All of us mamas of all ages were not spared!

I realised that after giving birth, due to stress, hormonal changes, us women are prone to hair loss. During this very sad period, we tend to 'shed' hair and suffer from weak hair roots. It takes months and even years for some to get over the postnatal hair loss stage.

I was happy to be introduced to Plantur 21 which is part of the Dr. Wolff Group, a fourth-generation Germany family business specialising in research, development and marketing of highly innovative cosmetic and pharmaceutical products with more than 80 years of experience with dermatology and galenic formula.

Plantur 21 is exclusively directed at young women between ages of 21 and 39. The products help solve problems that naturally occur during this stage of life due to stressful life situations such as stress or nutritional deficiencies (i.e. not health disorders).

The Plantur 21 shampoo provides an effective solution for weak hair roots and helps combat poor hair growth.

IMG_1721

I heard from the Plantur21 folks that if their products are used regularly, the Nutri- Caffeine Complex gives hair roots the energy boosts that they desperately lack of. Plantur 21 Caffeine supports the energy supply and helps to reduce hair loss. In addition, the valuable micronutrients biotin, magnesium, calcium and zinc support the supply of the hair roots.

I've started using the Plantur 21 shampoo ($18.90) daily hoping that it ensures enough sufficient energy supply to the hair roots. All it takes is a 2 minutes application on the scalp for the Nutri-caffeine complex to help penetrate the hair roots after that a rinse off. It is safe to be used during pregnancy too!

I also liked that the shampoo does not contain any silicones which tends to weigh down the hair, which was perfect for my fine hair!

IMG_1725

Both the shampoo and conditioner picked for me were especially used for dull, colour-treated and stressed hair like mine!

The Plantur 21 Nutri-conditioner ($12.90), like the shampoo was pleasant smelling and easy to use. There was no oily nor greasy residue after washing off.

IMG_1724

The Plantur 21 Nutri-Caffeine Elixir ($19.90) is a scalp tonic that helps to combats poor hair growth by helping to speed up the process of normalisation of hair growth cycle and strengthening hair growth. Currently I'm using it day and night.

I guess one mistake that I made previously was not using any hair loss products earlier. I should have prevented hair loss by using products such as Plantur 21 to help prevent hair loss.

In the meantime, I'll continue Plantur21! Will be trying it for a longer period and will update you guys on how it goes!

If you'll like to check out the Plantur21 range, it is available in Guardian, selected Watsons, Unity, NTUC FairPrice, Cold Storage, Giant NHG and independent pharmacies.
