November Hair Update & Favourite Styling Tricks










November Hair Update & Favourite Styling Tricks

With December just right around the corner, my hair is getting closer and closer to its final result. This month, I went back to Salon Tocci and Marie-Eve for a little touch up on my hair, as it’s been a month since I last got it done and my roots were slowly growing out. I did a touch up on my roots, changing the black to a dark brown so it looks more natural. Instead of doing what we usually do (lightening my hair) Marie-Eve and I decided to give my hair a little break, so she treated my hair with Redken’s newest treatment called Heat Cure. It is a professional in-salon treatment that can remove up to a year of surface damage. Hair feels regenerated, soft and is easier to manage after the treatment. This treatment was quick, easy and I was able to see a huge result. After this treatment, my hair was silky, smooth and softer than it’s ever been! The end of November actually makes my six months of hair journey with Redken–I began my hair transformation at end of April, and I can’t believe how light my hair has gotten! I am super excited for the final result this December.

A lot of you have been emailing me on how I do my hair and the products that I used to achieve my everyday hair. Here are little styling tricks for y’all!

I normally like to style on clean and first day, washed hair–since after each time I style it, I probably won’t wash my hair for a couple of days. I know it may sound gross, but this is the struggle with blonde hair; I can’t wash my hair everyday, but that's a job for my dry shampoo.

After washing my hair and letting it semi-dry, I apply Redken Frizz Dismiss Smooth force and Instant Deflate. These two products are infused with Brazillian Pracaxi Oil which helps with smoothing and keeping hair moisturized.

Before I apply any heat to my hair, I like to use the Redken Iron Shape 11 Thermal Protection Spray, after spraying that all over my hair, I comb it out to help avoid all the tangles.

For Straight Hair:
I normally use my T3 Micro hair straightener, it’s probably one of the best hair straighteners that I’ve tried out this year as it doesn’t dry out my hair like others.
How I straighten my hair is pretty simple and straightforward–I normally like to curve it inward at the bottom of my hair so it creates more body.

After finishing the heat process, I like to flip my hair upside down and use hair spray all over it, then flip it back up so it creates more volume.

For Curls:
I have recently been addicted to curling my hair, and my curls normally last up to four days!
After following all the previous steps, I would use the NUME Wand (it comes with three different size wands), currently using the biggest size, as it’s perfect for that effortless loose curl look.
I normally start curling from front to back so I know how to separate and part my hair and I tend to curl it outwards so it’s away from my face. I usually start the curl from 2/3 of my hair, mostly focusing on the ends because I personally don't like it when my hair is curled from too high up (it makes my head appear bigger than it already is). I alternate from inward and outward curls for the rest of my hair so it does not appear “too clean”. After curling, I just spray a strong hold hairspray all over my hair. I typically sleep in curls (in a low bun) in order to keep the curls “messy”. The next day, you will achieve the messy curl look! Of course, don’t forget to dry shampoo your hair, greasy roots is definitely a no go!


Love,

Chloe Zhang

Chanel Le Boy Old Medium Bag Review

Introducing my second Chanel bag: Le Boy Old Medium, yes I know I just purchased my first Chanel bag less than three months ago. It was actually not my first Chanel bag, I have previously purchased a Chanel Wallet on Chain in lambskin, but I sold it after 2 months of purchasing it because it was impossible for me to take care of lambskin pieces, I am not gentle and careful with my bags.  To be honest with you, at first this bag was a total impulse purchase, I just wanted to buy something for myself for the holiday season. To be completely real with you, I NEVER EVER receive any gifts from my parents during holiday season or my birthday, my parents was never a giving gift parents. I wanted to reward myself with something for 2017, you know sometimes you just gotta treat yo self a little. When I was making this purchase, I was deciding between whether to get the classic flap in medium size with Silver hardware and Caviar or this bag, I ended up getting this bag due to 3 reasons: 1. The cl…

Holiday Gift Guides: His & Hers 2017

It is that time of the year again! Busy holiday season filled with many holiday shoppings lists. Every year, although I don't have a big friend group but I still struggled with buying the perfect Christmas gift for my friends. This year I have put together a little gift guide ideas, for both male and female. To be honest, females are probably the hardest to shop for, there's just too many options to select from. I even have trouble choosing what I want most of time. When it comes to gifting, unless the person is super specific with exactly the item she or he wants, it will be a struggle. But knowing the person's style, favourite colour and sizes are essentials to buy the "perfect" gift. Everyone's style is pretty different, different individuals like different pieces. I have put together a couple different gift guides for people with different style and individualities. That being said, my gift guides are according to my own opinion and what I think its most …
