Salon Kream - Olaplex Treatment

I’m sure you guys know that I perm my hair often to maintain my Korean hairstyle. Of course, it isn’t easy to manage and I have to make sure that my hair is in good condition even after perming it. But luckily, I am glad that Salon Kream also uses Olaplex Treatment! I have been raving about Olaplex treatment before and if you don’t know, it is a new reconstructive treatment developed by top scientists in Santa Barbara that enhance the internal structure of the hair and prevents damage that occurs during chemical services like perming or coloring.

Waiting for my hair to be treated, permed and cut. I was dazed when they inform me that they close at 6 pm every day. However, it was later on when I understand that they strongly believe in work-life balance. I’m sure their staffs would truly appreciate!

After a lovely hair wash, my chemist, Willie is preparing to treat and perm my hair. I was amazed that the salon works differently as compared to other hair salons. Willie is considered a professional technician at Kream. He only manages chemical services like perming and coloring. A hair stylist will cut my hair later on!

He is very knowledgeable and skilled in his job. He consulted on what kind of hairstyle I want and explained the different techniques he would do based on my request. I am very excited to see the result.

I do look like a grandma whenever I’m perming my hair. Hahaha

If you realize, Willie actually added some pricks onto each rubber band curler. It was unusual to me and I questioned about the usefulness of the extra pricks. (which made the curl tighter than usual) He quickly responded to educate me that those pricks were there to make sure that solution penetrates evenly into the hair and also at the same time tightens the rubber band, making sure that the perm is well-done.

This was the chemical that he used.

Their machine was a little different from the usual too! Instead of having a machine turning around your head with the heat emitting inefficiently, the design of this machine allows a more efficient and even distribution of heat as it has a mini fan to circulate the air around your head.

The best thing? They offer tons of e-magazines and I am lovin’ it! 

I am able to get my daily dosage of recipe inspiration from it while doing my hair. I know it has been awhile since I shared a recipe but honestly, it takes a while to develop a recipe to create a video and share on my blog. Plus, with all the other contents I’m covering, I’m so tied down. Nevertheless, I would still try to strive to create new and easy recipes that are quick and delicious! You know me, I’m all about home bake, not those that you can find in an exquisite bakery store.

Say hi to my super cute hair stylist, Phyllis! She’s such a fun and funky person.

The moment she met me, she immediately told me that I should try a hairstyle that she thinks would suit me well. She was very eager to give suggestions but at the same time want to make sure that it is something that I am comfortable with.

Honestly, I can’t wait to go back again! It was a very comfortable and pleasant experience.

Kenjo Salon Scalp Treatment

Scalp Treatment for Your Irritated Sensitive Scalp @ Kenjo Salon

Kenjo Salon

Since young, my scalp is very sensitive.  Like my mom, I have dandruff and my condition is really bad as compared to the norms. I have really huge and scary dry flakes that will fall off whenever I scratch my head.  It was really bad as sometimes my scalp would feel so irritated that it started to bleed. Sounds bad, right? I often do this to horrify my friends by showing them that snow is possible in Singapore. Hahahaha!

I often do this to horrify my friends by showing them that snow is possible in Singapore. Hahahaha!

One of the best way to help to my scalp is with a scalp treatment. I’m glad that Kenjo Salon offers such service and I would show you the result later. It is important to take care of your scalp, not just your hair as you could keep your hair from feeling greasy if your scalp is healthy. Your head would benefit the treatment as the treatment will deeply cleanse your scalp by removing deep skin cell and calm it down.

Davines haircare

They will be using products from Davines for this treatment. Their Naturaltech series smelled so good and aromatic as it contains natural essential oil to soothe and calm me down. They are extremely lightweight to their scalp and hair but still extremely effective.

Step 1:

Step one: Massage Oil

Step one: Massage Oil

My hairstylist, William started the treatment by giving me a massage on my head with Davines Well-Being Massage Oil to get me to relax. The Well-Being series contain Phytoceuticals extract which has high antioxidant power. This series is meant to hydrate my scalp, keeping it moisturized and soft.

Next, he used a machine that emits infra ray and water mist on deep into my scalp to kill any bacteria and open my pores to get ready for cleansing. It was very relaxing. Afterward, William washed my hair with Davines Shampoo.

For the Shampoo, William hand-picked and told me that he will be using the Calming series instead. It is meant for calming down sensitive scalp. Just like the previous series, it smelled so good because it uses essential oil.

Before the final step of the treatment, William would need to trim my hair to get the hairstyle I wanted.

Step 4:

Finally, to end this whole treatment, he sprayed some lift in serum for my scalp. It is to make sure that my scalp remains calm and hydrate a longer period of time. I definitely feel that my scalp is less irritated now and at the very least, I don’t have large dead cell flakes and bleeding condition anymore! YAY!!

However, I personally feel that you should do this treatment periodically to keep your scalp healthy and happy. There is no such thing as one-time off thing, everything has to be maintained to be in excellent condition, so same thing to your scalp and hair. My condition has definitely improved, but I’m after a few more rounds of the treatment, it will be even better!

Perm with Olaplex Treatment @ Kenjo Salon

I have been perming so often that I am starting to worry about my hair condition. To maintain my permed hairstyle, I would have to perm almost every other month! That would be almost 6x per year and it’s insane! There was a period of time my hair was so frizzy that it did not look good at all even after a new perm session. I realized that taking care of my hair and making sure that it is in good condition is also very important as it is one of the keys to having nice hair.

Thanks to my new hair sponsor, I’ll be perming my hair alongside with Olaplex Treatment at Kenjo Salon. Many people have been raving about Olaplex treatment! Olaplex is a new reconstructive treatment developed by top scientists in Santa Barbara that enhance the internal structure of the hair and prevents damage that occurs during chemical services like perming or coloring. I’ll talk more about it later in this post blog.

Conveniently located in Plaza Singapura, Kenjo Salon is a Korean Salon with a combination of local and Korean stylists. They are very professional and will strive to provide their customers the ultimate salon experience.

When I got into the salon, I was greeted by one of the receptionist and was escorted to a table to wait for my hair stylist. I love the fact that they have many choices of beverage to choose from! As usual, I would need my coffee to kick start that day.

Here’s a picture of my hairstyle before I start. I looked damn unkempt! 

My hair stylist, William. 

I consulted William with the hairstyle I want in mind and he advised me with the necessary procedures I would need to do to achieve the best look. To protect my hair, he advised me to do my perm with Olaplex treatment. As I mentioned above, I heard great reviews about Olaplex and was glad that I could try it out myself here in Kenjo Salon. I then start my procedure with a hair wash followed by William cutting my hair effortlessly.

Olaplex

Olaplex

Olaplex is a new reconstructive treatment developed by top scientists in Santa Barbara that enhance the internal structure of the hair and prevents damage that occurs during chemical services like perming or coloring. It is a bond multiplier which is unlike any other products on the market right now. This actually connects any broken disulfide bonds in the hair, restoring the original strength and structure of the hair. Olaplex is not like a conditioner as it does not coat the hair in silicone to make it ‘smooth’ temporary.

Definitely great a treatment you should totally try it if you are,

  • Coloring your hair – For a more lasting vibrant hair color
  • Bleaching – To protect and eliminates hair breakage 
  • Rebonding – Maintain strength & giving structure to the hair
  • Hot/Cold Perm – Improves elasticity with strong and voluminous curl  

Since perming my hair will break numerous bonds in the hair, the integrity of my hair will be compromised. So an Olaplex treatment is highly recommended to repair the damaged caused by perm.

After my wash and cut, William applied a lotion-based Korean perming chemical to get it started. I was astonished that the chemical that they used was a lotion type and not those conventional watery perming chemicals you would get in other salons. I would totally prefer the lotion to the typical perming chemical as it was not messy at all and I do not need to worry about the chemical getting onto my face and into my eyes. 

So excited for the final result later!

My Olaplex treatment was done together with my perm. The Olaplex treatment was fairly simple. It was drizzled on my hair at the end after applying neutralizing chemical of the perm. Kenjo Salon had incorporated Olaplex treatment together with the perm. The result of doing this was impressive as my hair retained more of its elasticity and shine.

Look at the shine and the suppleness of my hair! 

The end result! My hairstylist, William told me that I also could style my hair differently if I want to for a formal event. Yet, I still very much prefer how my hair turned out when its down for a more casual look. 

Thanks William for styling me up! It was awesome!

A week after my perm and treatment with Kenjo Salon. I love how my hair turned out. It looks gorgeous! More pictures of my Tiong Bahru shots will be out soon, so stay tuned!

Get your hair styled in Seoul, Korea with CCA Hair

CCA Hair 까 @ Myeongdong

CCA Hair 까 @ Myeongdong

I went to Seoul last month for a short getaway and decided to do my hair there. I have heard great reviews about CCA Hair and their reasonable prices as compared to other salons in Korea. They also have a few outlets in Seoul! Since I stayed in Myeongdong, I visited their outlet there.

I actually didn’t notice their salon as I walked pass as it looks absolutely nothing like a hair salon store. I was expecting their shop to be a just as typical salon. Nevertheless, the beautiful doodles and graffiti does stand out and feels certainly hipster!

Upon entering the store, I was immediately greeted and asked what was I looking for. Afterward, they brought us to a coffee table to allow us to consult with our hairstylist what hairstyle we were looking for.

Though the hairstylists working there have limited English, there are one or two that could speak fluent Mandarin. I was amazed by their services as compared to the hair salons in Singapore. I was offered the choice of Coffee or Tea, followed by some Choco Pie while waiting for my turn.

After discussing with my hair stylist what I should have, I had decided to go for a wavy Dandy Perm with Shiseido Treatment.

It was a very different experience as compared to Singapore because you have to move from one station to the other for every procedure. From washing to cutting, to treating and perming.  I really like how they attached a plastic shield to protect my face during the whole process. Though my hair stylist was very stylish, he was camera-shy and dislike taking photos. In spite of that, he was very friendly and professional!

Look at both at my Sister-in-laws. For girls, you get to two people to help you out. So good right!

Look at the final result. Gorgeous! I love how it turned out.

I have actually permed my hair before but with the Shiseido Treatment, my hair turned out baby soft after the perm! It certainly does not look frizzy or dry. If you are in Korea, you should definitely consider getting your hair done! 

I was told that they also have an outlet in Singapore! If you feeling like getting your hair done, yet not going to Seoul you should totally check their store at Far East Plaza instead!

They display their prices online (both for KR and SG), so do check it out!
