My hair makeover with Daisuke Salon de Coiffure


One of the easiest ways to perk up your mood is to have a makeover. A hair makeover done by a professional can dramatically perk up your current hairstyle and inject some vivacity in your life.

Thus I felt like I did need some pick me up as well as something different in my life to get me going...and so I headed to my favourite hair salon, Daisuke Salon de Coiffure... Stepping foot inside Daisuke Salon is always fun, like visiting friends because everyone there from Daisuke-san and his lovely wife, Ai to all the stylists are very friendly and accomodating, unlike some other places where I have been to where services can be stilted and awkward....



I was ushered to a private cubicle/ room behind some curtains - ideal for Muslims wearing Hijab and served a nice hot Japanese Sencha, and given magazines to browse through... there is also a little book shelf here where you can borrow a book to read if you want......


This was how my hair look like before my makeover.... 

Anyway, Daisuke-san came and asked me what I wanted and I mentioned I might like some highlights..... he agreed and also told me he needed to trim off some of the hair edges which were quite damaged....and I agreed to it...




I wanted some highlights that would make my hair more vibrant and Daisuke -san indulged me and gave me some....
He used foil to separate the strands of my hair which will be lightened from the rest of my hair which will remain its original color. The process is done by applying lightener to the hair that has been woven and separated using an applicator brush. The foil is then folded to protect the hair and surrounding area during the "processing" time. 


Then my hair was given the CO2 treatment...in which with the first rinse, particles of dirt and oil were seen in the water scooped up.....yuckkss.....

CO2 is  a revolutionary  hair & scalp care treatment from Japan, created and made to be similar to the traditional Japanese 'onsen' (hot springs) which will help enhance the blood flow to your scalp, leaving you feeling refreshed with more luscious and radiant looking hair.

Why is CO2 is highly recommended?
  • It deep cleanses to reduce scalp itchiness caused by chemical residue from hair dye and perm treatments
  • It eradicates harmful chemical residue, hair dust and sebum from the scalp
  • It actually optimises the results of hair colouring and perming
  • It results in softer, more lustrous and more voluminous hair
  • It widens blood capillaries to boost and improve blood circulation
  • It prevents hair loss
  • It is a remedy for oily scalp
  • It repairs dry and damaged hair 
The deep cleaning action from carbonated water removes silicon, dirt and chemicals from the scalp, freeing up blocked follicles so that hair can grow better.  So as you can see, this treatment is very highly recommended for those with damaged or thinning hair, for both ladies and men...

My scalp definitely felt so much cleaner and lighter once I have done the CO2 treatment....

 Taadddaaa...this is after two hair washes, CO2 treatment, hair cut and purple hair manicure (to touch up the roots) done by Rene, the senior stylist there... 

A daring option is to try the newest variation on the mod look, with long blunt bangs that fall just above the eyelashes. I used to shun bangs because of my naturally 'curly' hair but for those of you with naturally curly hair, you can get the fringe done with a hair relaxer like I did in my visit before this... and now I can have bangs too!!!


Then Daisuke-san insisted that I was given the Milbon Deesse Japanese 3 steps hair treatment for coarse and unruly hair....This was to restore CMC lipids for a softer feel. The first step was to repair the lipid layer CMC using Amino oil that smoothed out the bumps on the surface of my hair.....


Then Step 2 was applied on my hair. It was a hydrophilic water-based polymer that enables my hair to capture and maintain the moisture. The ionic effect of combining Step 2 with Step 1 provides a moisture veil to bond my dry and damaged hair, especially at the hair ends...

My hair was then left for a little while with some air mist blowing on it.... then Step 3 was applied on it. Step 3 contains smoothing collagen to confine the moisture within the hydrophobic coating....

This Milbon Deese treatment was lovely as I really loved the fresh fruity aroma of the products and you can see visible improvement instantly. My hair was definitely much more silky , smooth and moisturized ....




Daisuke-san then proceeded to put curlers in my hair and put my hair into the hair steamer for about 10 minutes....

How I look like after my hair makeover from the front....

Our hair color needs to suit our complexion. Our natural hair color is always safe, but not usually as fun as the alternatives - and certainly not as dynamic. We should experiment with colors every once in a while, because our hair can define our complexion. Most hair colors can be made to work, but you need to make sure that you change the color of your clothes accordingly, and stay within the limits prescribed by the other elements of your complexion. 

I am so loving my purple hair which Daisuke Salon de Coiffure has given me, even more now with the highlights...
  

And my hair from the back... I love the little highlights... makes my hair more vibrant, don't you think.....
