Smile Salon : Coloring Treatment review


If you have been following my instagram feed [[ @zheng.ruixiang ]], you must've known already about me going to this Salon to change and fix my hair color. Ok, so honestly, I have only been a customer to Smile twice (first time to cut my hair short, second is yesterday to color my hair). Smile is quite popular with kids [[ KIDS SMILE ]] that's the original name for the Salon which is actually meant for kids only if I remember correctly, they use car - shaped seats or planes that can make noises (to keep kids happy and relaxed, I suppose, while the hairstylists are cutting their hair) and Smile Salon is meant for the adult customers (DUH!).

OK, so, yesterday Bella and I went to Paris Van Java so we can have our hair pampered. We're technically the first customer to enter cos we went there at 10 am. We asked for the coloring price, short hair is IDR 200k and medium is IDR 250k using L'OREAL. They have two options for hair coloring it's either you use L'OREAL hair dye or MATRIX ones. MATRIX costs cheaper, short hair is IDR 150K, medium IDR 200K and long IDR 250K. 

The cashier lady showed us the color chart from both L'OREAL and MATRIX. And, yes I did ask the difference between both dyes, they said L'OREAL is better. Well, I took so long in deciding the color and the shades but I do know what I want : to remove the reddish color of my hair due to my previous dye :) So I consult one of the available stylist : Yogi. He said that if I want to get rid of the reddish tone and stuff, I shouldn't use brown cos it'll turn orange instead I should use blonde dyes to get the greenish shine block the ugly orange-y tone. If I choose blonde, my hair will turn brownish. That's what he said so I was like "OK, I'll choose this blonde tone, L'OREAL 12.07 Medium Ash Blonde."

Then I was told to sit and Yogi first check my hair condition. 

He asked me when was the last time I dyed my hair and I said : a few months ago (I was lying LOL). Then he proceeded to mix the dye and applied it on my hair. 

He applied it with his hand (using gloves), per section, and the dye doesn't even touch my roots. Then I wait for 30-45 minutes which feels like so long. 

After that, he reapplied the dye again, on my roots this time, using all the dyes with the dying brush. And for a moment I thought to myself : Oh, I guess I have been dying my hair the wrong way all the time.  

I wait for about 15 mins then he washed my hair twice and dry it.

The result? The reddish color is almost gone, and my hair really turned ashy dark blonde with no reddish or orange-y shine coming out when there's a light shining down upon them. YES! BUT!! The section around my bangs is still reddish but has stopped showing the orange-y shine. I guess the previous dye that I used was super strong. OH WELL, it looks as if I have dark strawberry blonde, sort of.

Under different lightning, this is what I meant by strawberry.

The before and after picture

Here's the thing with SMILE and maybe any other hair salon when dyeing the customer's hair : 

1. Most refuse coloring customer's hair that has been dyed black before.

That is because once you dye your hair black, it'll become harder to get the lighter color, let's just say brown, to really get into you hair and that may result in uneven hair color.

Some will offer to bleach your hair, like SMILE, yesterday they offered to bleach my sis' hair but they warned her the bleach will make the hair ugly and frizzy (umm, not me, I bleached my hair and it only get a bit dry not frizzy. Appreciate the warning though). 

Some will stupidly said : Oh, no, hair that's already dyed black CANNOT be dyed again. WTF, the cashier ladies at Brown Salon by Rudy Hadisuwarno said that to me and I immediately hate them, clearly, they don't have better things or words to choose, they can tell me to bleach or at least explain why, not just deliberately said it was impossible :( plus it's said by cashier ladies whom I thought is not as smart and knowledgeable as the stylists.

2. Some refuse to dye the customer's hair if the customer has just dyed their hair 2-3 months ago.

So we have to show up with 3 months old hair color before they'd dye our hair again. This is because they don't want to cause more damage to our already damaged hair. This is the case with Yogi, which is why I lied in the first place lol.

Overall, I give Smile a 3.5/5 rate and you must've known why after reading my review above.

And I guess I won't be dyeing my hair again for quite some time cos I am already happy with the color. Don't know if I get bored though.

Treating a damaged hair

EVERYONE wants a stylish hairstyle to go with their stylish clothes from day to day. Well, even if the clothes don't need to be stylish enough, having good hair day every day is like a dream comes true to us girls #yes ! And so, we color it, style it, iron it, straightened it, literally, we ABUSE our hair :( and if your hair is not strong enough or you give your hair crap treatment, now or later, eventually, your hair will become coarse. If that happens, say goodbye to a smooth and perfect hair and say hello to your purse cos you'll be spending much more money trying to fix that hair.

Don't worry though, there is always a solution to every problems.
My solution? is SYOSS Damaged Hair Treatment. Pantene is good also but right now I'm using SYOSS, it's been a month and my damaged hair has become much much healthier. 

NONO, this is not a sponsored post :( 
My bf, Picco recommended me to use this treatment so I tried it. 
And I like it.

Why listen to a guy about hair treatment? Normally I wouldn't listen but since Picco has the smoothest hair I've ever touched, I believe him. Picco told me that once he used the shampoo, his hair become smoother [[ and here his hair is already silky smooth using local brand shampoo -_- ]]. Well, in my case, it took about 2 weeks for my hair to become less coarse.

I'm using the full treatment : from shampoo, conditioner to hair mask. Plus vitamin addition from Lucido-L and Ellips.

When do you know that you hair is sending SOS signals? 
Easy, when you're twirling your hair or just touching the tips. pull a little and suddenly the hair sort of broken up and you have split ends. Before split ends though, you'll experience fragile hair first.

I usually start with the shampoo.

Continue with conditioner.

Now, I am not a hair expert, but I usually use hair mask after the conditioner, I don't know if that is OK or not but it appears that my hair is getting better and better. Well, a simple warning though, you'll get oily hair the next day if your hair is not dry/damaged I repeat, oily hair.  For normal hair, use hair mask only once or twice a week.

Another plus point for SYOSS : they smell nice :)

And for the night/ before styling I spritz some Lucido-L to my hair. They oil up your hair though so for those who easily have greasy oily hair, better use them not too much.

PS : Any product is fine really since ppl have different hair. Keep in mind though that you cannot treat damaged hair normally. You have to treat them specially, using hair mask now and then plus don't forget the vitamins. I know it may seem like a bother and not practical at all and it also means more time spent inside the bathroom. But it'll be worth it.

See you in my next post :*

PPS : I'm open to hear any other product suggestion <3

For all of you who don't know what konjac is..well, let me explain it a bit for you.. so, basically konjac is a natural vegetable root which produce antioxidants and vitamins!

The contents of this sponge is very safe for skin face and even toddlers also able to use it :3 
The sponge come with many variety of colours and types which's every single one of them has their own function! I bought the lemon one it was said to be effective to reduce black spots, acnes and highly rich of vit c that can make your skin face become more white and clear!! >__< 
So.. yeah this konjac sponge also comes with maaaany benefits!!
1.) Anti bacteria
2.) Deep cleansing
3.) Unique texture which's so soft and comfortable to use
4.) Moisturize and balance our skin ph
5.) 100% natural and biodegradable

It's even more easy to use!! Just wet the konjac sponge until it's soft and then you can use your daily cleanser and gently message your face and neck area! 
Also don't forget to hang the sponge dry and sanitize it by boiling (1-2 minutes) every 2 weeks.

Beauty Hacks #1 Blush On


Sorry for the longpause of not blogging here :( anyway, sooooo I'm openingg up a new segment here called the BeautyHacks. Basically it's like lifehacks but it only talks about beauty (^◇^;) okok here goes episode 1 <3

Problem #1 : Running out of blush on or doesn't have any but you want to add colors to your cheeks ??? 

Don't panic, don't fret, the solution is so easy. I read somewhere that the best make up look is when the colors of the lips and the cheeks're a match :) that got me thinking, would it be convenient if we can just use the same products so the color would def match?

And so I tried it at home, I am not the type who likes wearing blush ons cos personally I think they're not that important :/ ok ok, on to the experiment of using glosses or lipsticks as blushes.

In the tutorial I am using the Maybelline's coral baby lips 

but the color doesn't really pop :"(

K pardon my face, after that just smudge it all over your cheeks :)

[[ adding starry effect to emphasize the voilà part - pardon me ]]

Ok I know the blush doesn't really look that obvious :( the coral gloss is not that colorful but the pink one is better. Here's proof :

It's faint but it's visible.

The blush is not too visible but it's there and so your cheeks doesn't look so pale, anw,  I prefer faint blush than thick ones since faint blushes look more natural.


That is the end of BeautyHacks episode 1 (^_^)next post will be about a pomegranate mask and my haircare. Stay tuned ! Follow my ig (at) zheng.ruixiang for news about updates (^ν^)
