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 my current hair after 4 months of progress!


WHEN TO USE
FOR MINIMUM COLOR DEPOSIT
1-2 weeks after a haircolor service
When you are satisfied with current tone
To maintain newly colored hair

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

FOR MAXIMUM COLOR DEPOSIT
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!

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…

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 will fit nothing. Nope, y…

My Microblading Experience

As many of you know I recently got my eyebrows microbladed by Tiffany at Brow Beaute. Today, I am sharing with you my experience about microblading. I've been considering getting my eyebrows microbladed for sometimes now, I've been doing my researches on microblading and top Toronto Microbladding locations. Also, I posted a recommendation microblading post on my instagram story. The number one recommended place was Brow Beaute by my followers. I took a look at Brow Beaute's work, I knew she is one that I want to get my eyebrows done with! Her work are clean and natural. You don't understand how excited I was when I booked my appointment with Tiffany and being able to wake up with the perfect eyebrows!  So what is Mircoblading?  It is a Semi-Permanent tattooing technique which creates hairlike strokes to fill in your eyebrows and creating a better shape for your eyebrows. All the pigment from microblading are not implanted into the skin as a deep as a normal tattoo, it ty…
