Hair Goal in progress, Patience is the Key!

Hair Goal in progress, Patience is the Key

Four months ago, before Redken and Marie-Eve from salon Tocci worked their magic on my hair, it was in the worst condition possible–no hair salon was willing to take me in as a customer. My hair was very damaged and of course extremely brassy… I remember complaining about my hair every second of my life, I hated it! After going through this process, I learned how to have patience. The hair goal photos you see on the Internet and on Instagram, don’t typically show the process and how long it took to achieve that kind of “hair goal”. On average, to achieve blonde hair from naturally very dark hair takes a minimum of three sessions with each session being approximately 4 hours long, which means a minimum of 12 hours’ session is required. When I first found out how long it would take, I was for sure surprised! I thought it would only take one visit to the salon to complete. I’ve learned how to take this hair progress slowly, one step at a time. The first photo is of my hair before I got it done with Marie-Eve and Redken, it was very brassy, dry and damaged. Today, my hair is no longer dry and brassy! To achieve your hair goal, you must take care of it properly otherwise it won’t last more than two weeks. I know a lot of people who’ve done their 12-hour hair session all in one day, however it will not give your hair enough time to recover and repair the damage, so I suggest being patient and doing it the right way. I am very happy I took this process slowly–I see a huge difference in my hair thanks to my journey with Redken!

A new hair product discovery was the Blonde Idol Custom Tone Violet

This is a custom blend of colour deposit for your hair to help neutralize brassiness. You can mix the purple tone with a conditioner to be used as a treatment.

This is photo of my hair before the 4 month journey with Redken

This is my current hair after 4 months of progress!

1-2 weeks after a haircolor service
When you are satisfied with current tone
To maintain newly colored hair

3-4 weeks after a haircolor service
When tone needs to be slightly adjusted
After sun-exposure or light swimming

5-6 weeks after a haircolor service
When desired tone is brassy or flat
After excessive sun exposure or swimming

This product can be used daily at a minimum colour deposit or up to twice a week at medium or maximum deposit.

Another product that I’ve discovered and love is the All Soft Argan-6 Hair Oil

This oil is perfect for dry, brittle hair as it provides softness and nourishes split ends.

Do not be afraid to take it slow sometimes, anything good is worth waiting for!

Go to Jumpsuit Look

You can never go wrong with black, especially when it comes to jumpsuits. You will never have to worry about pairing top or bottoms. A black jumpsuit will be an essential in your closet. I love the belted details of this jumpsuit, which add a little shape to this flowy jumpsuit. As well as the v-neck details, it adds a little elegant look to the jumpsuit. The wider leg design, make you legs appear longer and skinnier! In this look, I dressed it down with a pair of simple flat sandals and a black wash denim jacket that  dress down the look. Of course, you can dress it up with a pair of heels, it can be transform into a night out look.  Jumpsuit:  Le Chateau Denim Jacket:  Topshop Bag:  Chanel Shoes:  Hermes The material of this jumpsuit is light and breathable, making this jumpsuit as one of my summer uniform.

Saint Laurent Sac De Jour Nano & Small Review

Size: Nano Hardware: Silver Material: Grained calfskin Size Dimension: 8.75"x7"x4" Price: $2,585 CAD (+taxes) Interior: Tonal suede, no additional zipper/pocket Yes, I recently purchased the classic Saint Laurent Sac De Jour in the Nano size, I absolutely love it and used it way too often maybe. This is the black with silver hardware as well as in the material of pebbled grained calfskin. It come with detachable strap with lanyard clasp fastening. When I was purchasing the bag, I was deciding between the baby or nano size for a very long time. I like how the baby size have a zipper pocket inside, but the nano does not. But the reason why I went for the nano is because I like to wear most of bag cross body, just a lot easier to get around the city. The baby size looks very awkward and big on my body when I wear it cross body. Despite the cons of not having a zipper inside, I have no issue with it. Also, when you look at the nano, you probably think it
