Red Hair for Chinese New Year!

SAM_1021
Hey all! Booked an appointment with Jerry last week after work to dye my hair!
Headlines Hairdressing is located at China Square Central, which is so near from my office (Raffles Place). Took me about 5-10 minutes to walk there.
Initially I wanted to dye pinkish brown for Chinese New Year but I think the color is not that loud so I changed to red instead.

I wanted a red that is not too bright for work and not too dark because I like light colors.
So after some dicussion with Jerry, I've decided to dye a red that has a hint of purple (:
Kind of like a reddish-purple shade.

As usual, here's a photo before I dye my hair!

Took about an hour to dye my hair.

Here's the end results!

ou can see that the color is slightly different from each angle due to the lighting.
In natural sunlight, it looks more reddish than purple.

After some washes it would look more reddish purple! Loving my new hair now! (:

Do make your appointment now before Chinese New Year!!

Assembly Coffee!

Hello everyone. It's been a busy January for me this year!
This year's Chinese New Year is in January so I had to rush off to buy my new clothes, shoes, bags, etc.

Was supposed to be out for dinner during the weekend with Mr. Ming but his mum had cooked dinner so we decided to eat at his house and head out for desserts due to my sudden craving for waffles :X

I went online to search for somewhere nearby and we managed to stop by Assembly Coffee! 
It was located near Bukit Timah Road, just beside Prata House.

We almost couldn't find the place because the sign (picture above) is too small and the door is so small.
The cafe is quite small and there aren't much customers because the place is not that accessible. 

Here's what we ordered!
Salted Caramel with buttermilk Waffles
Chocolate buttermilk waffles. Supposed to have strawberries but they ran out of it.

Cappuccino! Mr. Ming's mum ordered it. Comes with a pretty coffee art too.

The waiting time was slightly long considering the fact that the cafe is quite small and there wasn't much customers at that timing.
However, the waffles are very crispy and the salted caramel waffles are just nice, wasn't too sweet.
The chocolate waffles was too sweet, not to my liking.

Overall it was good and will definitely go back there since the waffles are nice!
It would be better if they could have more waffles choices.

Dr SM Yuen - Atlas Medical Laser Treatment 1

Hello everyone, I'm back to Atlas Medical Clinic to look for Dr SM Yuen for my laser treatment. I will be going back frequently for my laser treatment appointments. 

It was actually my first time doing laser treatment so I was actually quite nervous about it. What my first impression about laser treatment is that it will hurt a lot because the laser beams are literally shooting at my face. 

Dr SM Yuen told me that since it's my first time, they will be using the lightest laser for my face. This treatment will help to even out my skin, reduce pigmentation and pores which allows the skincare products to better absorb to my skin. Throughout the whole treatment, Dr SM Yuen is very careful and often checked on me if the laser treatment hurts.

Here's a before and after photos. 
  

  

  

The treatment only took about 15 minutes which I think it's really fast. It feels a little painful, like an ant bite but it is still bearable. After the treatment, I can head out immediately because there is no swelling and not much redness since the laser treatment is quite mild.
The results is not that visible in pictures, however I do feel that my makeup is easier to apply after the treatment.  

Will be back for more treatments and update you all soon !

Dr SM Yuen - Altas Medical Treatments

Hello everyone! I went back to Atlas Medical to do 2 treatments a week after my consultation with them.
The first treatment I did was the Silk Peel Derma-Infusion.
Silk Peel is a wet abrasion treatment that exfoliates, hydrates and improves the skin texture. It makes the skin fairer, even toned, smoother and refines pores. Silk Peel is similar to Diamond Peel, however Silk Peel products a more gentle and comfortable experience because the suction head they use a smooth unlike the Diamond Peel. The facial therapist did one side of my face and let my touch the difference between both sides.
The side that has done the Silk Peel is a lot much smoother than the other side.

The second treatment I did was the Vita-C Hydrolightening Theraphy.
It is a calming and refreshing therapy that uses a unique lab-researched concentrated vitamin C that has anti-oxidation, anti-pigmentation and brightening effects. Thanks!
I find this really interesting because I was asked to hold a metal bar which is meant to transfer the Ions from the machine to my body and back to the machine. It hurts a little sometimes but it is still bearable.

After the 2 treatment, the therapist put in a very cooling mask to soothe my skin.

Here's a photo I took after the treatment. FYI, I did not edit the pictures except for cropping it.
I use to have quite a few blackheads and it has been reduced by quite a bit.
The redness on my skin has been reduced as well.

As mentioned on my previous post, I'll be review on the products as well.
You can take a look at their description in my previous blog post here: 

Rose-2 UV Shield with SPF 30 PA +++
This sunscreen has a very thick and creamy texture. It is non-sticky and drys on my skin matte and doesn't leave a white cast like normal sunscreen does. It is non-comedogenic, which means it doesn't clog pores. A plus point! 
I love that fact that it is matte because I can just apply this and go out without looking greasy, however the bad side is that it need to be applied properly because it drys fast. If it is not applied properly it may leave white flakes which is very unsightly and difficult to remove.

Rose-2 Splash Away Gentle Purifying Cleanser.
Splash Away is a very gentle cleanser that doesn't dry out my skin.
It doesn't latter that much as normal cleanser though but not a problem for me. When you wash off the cleanser, it leaves a very soft and smooth touch to my skin.

Rose-2 Hydra Relief Skin Perfecting Moisturizer
I love this product!
This moisturizer is very very moisturizing to my skin. It is oil-free and lightweight so it doesn't feel heavy on my skin at all. I usually apply at night because sleeping in an air-conditioned room is quite drying. After about 3-4 days my skin became really soft and smooth and my skin feels a little bouncier (if that’s how you describe it? Haha)

DYNA Argan Oil Treatment - Straighten your hair in a healthy way!

DYNA Treatment Straightening 3
Hello everyone! About a week back, I went back to Headlines Hairdressing to look for Jerry to get my hair done.
Had my roots touched up and changed a new hairstyle for the new year, to start everything anew! (;

Looking back at how bad my hair looks from my laziness.
DYNA Treatment Straightening 3
Untamed curls. Not looking good.

This time round, I did the DYNA Argan Oil Treatment for Straightening again! Really love all Mucota/DYNA treatments as they are really awesome. DYNA Treatment uses Argan Oil.

There are a lot of benefits of Argan Oil, here are some of them:
1. It helps to hydrate the hair in a natural way, without feeling oily,
2. It helps to penetrate into the hair follicles to enhance elasticity of the hair.
3. It is one of the best treatment for damaged and frizzy hair.
4. Contains natural anti-oxidants to help strengthen the hair.
5.Contains Vitamin E to treat damaged hair and restore the beautiful shine on your hair.

There are tons and tons of benefits of Argan Oil which can be found on the internet. It is even great for your body and skin as well.

This time round, it only took about 3 hours to do the DYNA Argan Oil Treatment because my hair is much healthier that it was one year ago. Before I show you the end results, do check out my previous post at Headlines for 2013 in case you've missed out!

It is not like rebonding where you get super straight and flat hair.
For DYNA Argan Oil Treatment, you still can get naturally straighten hair with a little volume as well. (:

Here's a picture taken at home
DYNA Straightening 2

To achieve nice and pretty hair, we will have to constantly maintain our hair well.
Jerry always tells me that hairstylist can only give you 60% of your beauty, and 40% comes from your hard work.

Your hard work will depend on how you look.
Therefore I've tried on these few products below and find it really good which I want to recommend to all girls out there.


Mucota Aire Emolient CMC Shampoo 02
CMC is a cell layer compound exists out and inside of our hair which protects our hair.
People with damaged hair is caused by CMC substance being removed from the hair due to harmful chemicals such as hair dyes or during perming, etc. Therefore, products with CMC substance helps to maintain moisture, to prevent dryness and maintain softness of the hair.
When I first used this, I find that it is very oily and I tried to wash it off but I couldn't. After it dries, it is not that oily anymore and it really moisturizing for my hair. It makes my hair become really soft and not so frizzy.


Mucota Aire Hair Mask Treatment 06
It contains honey which is an excellent moisture holding capability that is often used in skincare products.
Honey can also be used for hair products as well, to retain moisture to prevent dryness that causes broken hairs or split ends.

This mask treatment does not have a thick consistency but it does it's job in moisturizing my hair and makes it really smooth.


Mucota Aire 10
This is my favourite product! Mucota Aire 10 is a leave-on mask where you apply it after you washed your hair when it's still wet without washing it off.
It helps to prevent hair from damage from any heat appliances and UV Rays. It also helps to prevent frizz as well. This products makes my hair really really smooth and soft whole day which I think it's a must try product! It has a sweet green apple scent to it too (:

Chinese New Year is coming and many of the salons are using discount coupons sites online to attract people to come. Some girls might think that Headlines Hairdressing is charging higher than other salons for the same treatments and services so why should people visit Headlines Hairdressing?

Mucota products are expensive due to the ingredients they use. Other salons that are promoting DYNA treatments at discounted coupons online site at very attractive prices might not even be able to cover the cost of the products (plus, they have to pay those online sites for using their services as well), therefore some products might be added in to save cost.

Jerry is an Educator for Mucota products where he specializes in doing DYNA treatments.
All the products they used are all pure, with no chemicals or other products added to it. 
It is safe to think that the money you spent at Headlines Hairdressing is worth it.

Do visit Headlines Hairdressing now before it's fully booked!

New Year Resolutions!


Hello everyone! Feeling sleepy/lethargic/fatigue for the new year.
It's been about a week since new year so I gave it a thought for my New Year's Resolution and came up with 5 of them.
Currently I'm not longer studying therefore my resolutions have became more practical. I feel so old now. ):

Here's my top 5 New Year's Resolution:
1. Spend lesser and save more - at least 25-30% of my salary to go to my savings
I used to overspend and get pocket money from my parents when I don't have enough but now I feel that it is time to repay my parents back. Asking them for money is definitely not a solution, therefore it is always good to keep some savings for rainy days!

2. Drink more water and eat healthier. Lesser snacks during work and exercise/walk more.
Alright, my biggest mistake out of my whole life is that I'm born a lazy person. I don't exercise and I eat a lot.
I can skip drinking water a whole day without feeling thirsty.
Therefore there is a need to be more healthier because getting an office job is seriously making me fatter and fatter and my tummy is seriously bulging.

3. Travel overseas for at least 2 times this year. (exclude JB haha)
One of my materialistic requests. Travelling gives me a good reason to buy, shop and eat!

4. Be more humble and nicer to people, stop saying rude words/mean things.
Need to start being more mature. Need not have any better explanation than that.

5.Be more active in blogging and other social platforms. 
Sometimes I felt like I should just shut off all my social media platforms, but I couldn't. I know I need to be more active. I may not be one of the most popular and influential blogger, or a blogger with that writes the best. There are always some people out there that can benefit a little from reading my blog. (:

As for point 5, I have created a new Dayre account!!!!
I know I am a little outdated on that but I find that it is great for a micro-blog and much easier for me to post my daily little happenings.
Do follow me at J_OMY if you have one! It is really cute.

Done!
