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!

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 …
