Back To Black Hair

Everyone was surprised by my hair colour, I went from blonde to black real quick in the past week. I've been blonde for two years now, constantly getting my hair done, bleaching, or toning every three to six weeks. My hair is getting thinner and thinner, as well as a lot of my hair start to fall out more and more, also I already have very thin hair to begin with. My hair's quality unable my hairstylist to bleach further to achieve the dream ashy grey blonde look that I always wanted. However, I am thankful my hairstylist Gwyneth Fung at Toni & Guy Yorkville, I am for sure a challenge. I am very picky with my hair and constantly having different shade of blonde. About a month ago, Gwyneth introduced a dark toner with a tint of blue, grey and black tone, into my blonde hair. It took me by surprise, at that moment it triggered me wanting my black hair back. One thing about this toner is the colour fades overtime. The black tone would last about 3 washes, then fades into a very ashy grey for another 3 washes; eventually it fades to an ashy blonde. This is definitely a great way for all you blonde ladies to test out the darker hair but can still maintain your blonde!

Tips for Blonde Hair
1. Try to wash your hair maximum only two time a week
2. Avoid using too much dry shampoo on a daily, overuse will weaken your hair and making it
3. Add purple shampoo into your conditioning mask to avoid the brass and nourishing your hair
4. Masking your hair every time you wash it, and leave it in for around one hour

3 Reasons Why I Went Back to Black


1. Less Maintain and Regular touch up

I am constantly back at the salon once every 3 weeks, because my hair base is very brassy and orange tone. A quick trip to the salon on an average, I spent at least one and half hour there, it is very time consuming.

2. Healthier and silky texture

You can probably see my hair texture in a lot of my photos, when I was blonde, my hair was very frizzy and unhealthy. It is very hard to manage, especially with all the split ends. As well as theres a lot of fall outs. Very often I would skip brushing my hair, because my brush would get stuck and a huge amount of hair would break off.

3. Using less expensive products

Anyone tried being blonde would understand how costly it is. Purple shampoo are more expensive than regular shampoo and it gets use up very fast. Also, in order to get the toning effect you have to use way more than a regular amount. When it comes to masking and conditioner, you use at least double the amount in order to look a little more healthier.


This is one of the big change in 2017, I finally let go of my desire of being blonde! I think I can be happier having black hair for awhile. Not planning to change my hair colour anytime soon, because I know for a fact that my hair needs a break or else I will probably be bald next year.



Love,

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.

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 …
