Review: Kérastase Cristalliste Luminous Perfecting Masque and Dual Sculpting Serum, the pink treatment products for the wonky hair

You heard me right. I have wonky hair lately ever since I undergo L’Oreal Professionnel HAIRchalk. Don’t worry. HAIRchalk is fine. Just that the patches I have is larger thus the unusual dryness on the hair. Every night I applied generous amount of L’Oreal Professional Mythic Oil (Nourishing Oil) on damp hair and on the next morning but my hair is still dry. My hair just drinks up to Mythic Oil!

Then Kérastase Cristalliste came to the rescue. My hair loves it so much that I must tell you how amazeball these product is. No more wonky hair 😀

Review: Kérastase Nutritive Irisome’s 2 Must-Have Hair Care Products to Prevent Hair Oxidization that causes Hair Nutrition Loss

Do you have this problem where your scalp is acting up as much as your face? Hair is the one tricky issue that is giving me never ending problem. Previously I shared with you my painful experience with sensitive scalp that was mistaken as dandruff scalp and I managed to tame the sensitivity down using Kérastase Specifique Dermo-Calm Range. However when I finished the whole range, my scalp then turned back into dry and sensitive all over again. Just when I was about to run out and grab another set of Kérastase Specifique Dermo-Calm Range, Kérastase Nutritive Irisome hair care range that is for dry and sensitised hair arrived my doorstep. Comparing with the other Kérastase hair care that I tried before, Nutritive Irisome only emphasis on their 2 must-have products instead of four to five products. It’s basically just shampoo and conditioner.

Beauty ideals or the perfect conditions for perfect hair has always been Kérastase exploration. Nutritive range was launched because Kérastase began educating women about the fact that their hair had to be nourished. That was back in 1979. At this generation and point of time, nutrition is no longer simply about a combination of lipids, glucids and amino acids that meet purely functional needs. Developments in the field of nutrition are now much more dynamic. The “yo-yo” effect has come under scrutiny. A new vision is necessary: prodigious nutritional qualities, immediate benefits and the dream of long-lastingness. That’s how this unprecedented new vision inspired new-generation Nutritive Irisome was launched. It’s exceptional nutrition extracted from the precious, perennial rhizome of the Iris.

Hair Tutorial: Cute and Simple Side Braided Bun

A year ago I stumbled upon a Youtube video on this simple, cute side braided bun and I’ve been doing the hair style since. I must admit, having all your hair up in a bun is not a favourite here because you could risk looking like an “auntie”. The last time I had my hair up in a bun is during my ballet classes 😀 . Boy it was a competition on who have the neatest and nicest hair bun of all!

I’ve seen some stylish girls doing it and it actually looks good. The key to this look is to put on jewellery, pairing the look with modern attire such as dresses and don’t forget the makeup 🙂 . For this side branded bun hair tutorial, I’ve only put on a light makeup as I was in a hurry. Hope you like this hair-do!

Hair Tutorial: Wrap-Around Half Do with Kérastase Couture Styling

If you’re my Instagram or Facebook page follower you’ll definitely remember this wrap-around half do which I shared a few months ago. I know I know, I promised you a hair tutorial on this hair-do. It took me this long to finally do it because of two reason. (1) This auntie have totally forgotten about it as usual lol and (2) I haven’t figure out how to take photo of my head from the back.

I’ve been toying around with some styling products from Kérastase Couture Styling range and recreating this wrap-around half do. Let me tell ya’ recreating this hair-do is not easy at all but here is the tutorial as promised 😀

The first time I tried doing this wrap-around half do is in the office. That time I’m equipped with just a comb, a few hair tie, a few bobby pin, a can of hair spray and I nailed it on first try. Not only recreating the same hair-do is difficult, I also face with the shooting challenge as well. My bigger camera is once again sent to the service centre so I have no choice but to use a smaller camera. Some photos may be a bit blurry as I can’t see the camera screen at all. I think you get what I mean 🙂

Review: Kérastase Specifique Dermo-Calm Range, Soothe and Relax Your Sensitive & Stressed Scalp

I think I mentioned this before :D. My hair is considered the less problematic one and I don’t really have to spend time and pay a lot of attention to it. I do suffer occasional hair loss and dandruff due to stress but that comes and go. Then…my scalp took a 180 degree turn six months ago. Out of the sudden I suffer from sensitive scalp. My scalp became so dry that it flakes. Flaky scalp and dandruff is different. If you find white bits on your shoulder, that is flaky scalp not dandruff. Treating flaky scalp with hair care for dandruff doesn’t help but make things worse. Not only did I suffer from flaky scalp. My scalp is red, painful and veins are visible.

Before I knew the difference between flaky scalp with dandruff, I was treating my problem with hair care for dandruff. Not only it doesn’t cure my problem, it make things worse. I was in a red, painful scalp for a few months before I knew what went wrong. I visited my usual hair salon for a hair cut and my stylist told me that my scalp is actually sensitive and dry. She suggested that I use hair care for sensitive scalp, not anything else. I was introduced to Kérastase Dermo-Calm range.

According to Kérastase, hair beauty is determined within the scalp. That is why Kerastase created Dermo-Calm range for sensitive and stressed scalps.

Review: Kérastase Initialiste Advanced Scalp and Hair Concentrate, The World’s First Skin Care for the Scalp and Hair

I talked about taking care of the face a lot and occasionally the hair but just like millions of women around the world I neglected my scalp. I don’t know about you but I actually thought shampoo, treatment or even hair masque is also taking care of my scalp. It’s not wrong to be misleaded that way because these product are being marketed as “scalp care” as one of the benefit. Boy I was so wrong. There are so many hair care brand in the market regardless premium, drugstore brand or even supermarket brand but none of them come out with a product especially designed for the scalp. That was before, until Kérastase took the first step to come out with Initialiste; the Advanced Scalp and Hair Concentrate.

Kérastase said that Initialiste is the first advanced concentrate hair serum to impulse the growth of stronger, shinier hair and more youthful hair. It is made with native plant cells that acts at the very base. So hair grow stronger and more radiant.
