So, I’ve been laying low where blogging scene is concerned these days and some of you have been quite curious about me. Don’t worry, guys, I haven’t kicked the bucket yet. It’s just that things has been really hectic for me since the end of April 2019 and I haven’t been bothering to make time to indulge in being a social butterfly like I used to. Believe me, you may have seen my social media updates where I jokingly posted status where I’ve been busy binging on Kdramas and Thai Lakorns or busy ogling handsome Oppa, but the truth is that I’ve been busy working out on my latest novel. That, and keeping up with my dancing and HIIT routine. But despite the fact that I’ve been keeping an active lifestyle, I’ve been sorely neglecting my beauty regime and I’m due for some serious hair makeover.
And so, I decided to hop over to 72 Change Hair Salon upon recommendation from my friend. Newly opened in May 2019, 72 Change Hair Salon is located in Cheras Traders Square and has gained quite a reputation. 72 Change Hair Salon came highly recommended among beauty influencers as well as busy professionals and I thought I’d give it a go. My hair needs some serious rescuing, after all.
Here’s the interior of the salon. Picture credit to their website. The interior of the salon was minimalist in style where deco is concerned. Everything was kept clean and chic. Nothing instagram-worthy here, but I really like it. The salon is really spacious, well ventilated and really cozy. Definitely the place you would want to have some pampering at.
My hair was really unruly and a freaking mess. My stylist, Mr. Ken was absolutely horrified when he saw my terribly damaged hair. Deep inside, I feel really guilty for scaring the poor guy, but unrepentantly informed him that my hair was in a terrible state because of all my swimming and diving classes, which is partly true. My hair started to dry and frazzle up after I started to swim frequently since March. I suppose the chlorine was the culprit and no amount of Argan Oil could help to smooth them up. Worst part of it all is that my scalp itches terribly too and I have this urge to keep scratching. I kept my hair in a bun most of the time so that it wouldn’t look so unsightly. I knew I need to seek some professional help, or a Fairy Godmother, even but keep putting it off due to time restriction.
Consultation time with my stylist, Mr. Ken, suggested treatment that can help to fix my dry, damaged and unruly hair; the 6 Steps Scalp Treatment. He recommended rebonding to straightened my frizzy hair but I I prefer to keep my natural summer curls for my upcoming beach holiday in September and so we opted for hair colouring instead. I wanted something sweet and youthful without being too outrageos in office and went with ‘Very Light Beige Blonde’.
And so Mr. Ken started to work miracles on me. First thing first, to soothe my ithcing scalp with minty and refreshing hair wash. He gave me a little lecture on taking care of my hair by doing hair mask regularly to help keep the itchiness at bay and to help moisturize them.
Mr. Ken, my stylist, taking a closer look at my hair. They’re badly damaged and I decided to just cut off those split ends.
I wanted to go shorter, you know, the pixie cut, but wasn’t daring enough and so decided with below shoulder length.
Two Oppa, Mr. Ken and Mr. Vico, blow drying my hair after the haircut. Yours truly feels like a Queen being pampered here.
After blow drying, it’s time for hair colouring, and here’s hair dye being applied. I hated this part the most on ordinary circumstances. The hair dye usually stinks with ammonia and the stench is really intolerable, but surprisingly, the hair dye used by this salon does not have the chemical stink. I forgot to ask but I suppose it was ammonia-free, since it does not emit such awful smell.
After the hair dye was applied, it’s time to let it penetrate. The wait was not long, just about 15-20 minutes. This pleases me immensely as I’m not the sort of person who is good at waiting.
Again, my hair is given a nice bath, and this time to wash off the hair dye.
And then the 6 steps scalp treatment begins. First, my hair is washed again with the repair shampoo specifically for scalp scalp treatment. And then, Toxic Remover Essence was carefully applied for hair detoxification purpose. A light massage was given to help with the absorption before it was washed again. The hair was then applied with Acidic Protein Therapy Cream. This is an acidic protein re-constructor that helps to re-bond damaged hair, helps to strengthen them while neutralizing the pH of the hair and eliminate toxins due to chemicals procedures like hair colouring, perming and such. And then ta Leave in Naturally Radiant And Jojoba ComplexTherapy where the hydrogenated jojoba oil and wheat protein fills in porosity gaps to help fix the damages in the hair.
In all honesty, I was really amazed with the final result. Here’s a BEFORE and AFTER makeover. From freaky frazzles that looks like some broomstick to fabulously hot. My hair looks like some supermodel. I must say, I am really impressed. 72 Change Hair Salon may not provide you with Fairygodmothers but they definitely take good care of you. A special thank you to Mr. Ken and Mr.Vico for the VVIP treatment.
