Sponsored Review on PHS HAIRSCIENCE , Healthy Scalp Glamours Hair- Sweet Bunny



There is nothing more annoying than an itchy scalp not to forget to mention that constantly scratching your scalp will cause unwanted hair fall and dandruff. I have tried many shampoos and treatments but had no luck with finding remedies for my itchy scalp that was lasting.

PHS HAIRSCIENCE approached me. They gave me a series of question on what was troubling me and recommended me to try out the ADV Soothe Daily regime.

                                           PHS Hairscience ADV Soothe Daily regime

Best Shampoo for Sensitive Scalp in Singapore PHS HAIRSCIENCE ADV Soothe Daily regime – This package consists of gentle shampoos, conditioners and tonic. Developed and certified by trichologists,  PHS HAIRSCIENCE products use patented stem cell ingredients and botanical extracts, specially formulated formula prevents tightness and discomfort, fights free radical damage and combats bacteria and improves scalp immunity. It also improves blood circulation, which in turn allows the roots of your hair to receive the much-needed nutrition it requires.
  

Double Cleansing for Your Scalp- Pollutants in the air as well as dust, dirt and grime can find their way into your hair as you go along your day, to wash my hair I began the routine by using Signature double cleanse. First I used the ADV Nutrition Shampoo which provides a deep cleanse removing all impurities unclogging the pores and cleaning the roots. Next, I used the ADV Soothe Shampoo which is a correcting shampoo that focuses on correcting greying hair, dandruff, hair loss and sensitivity while protecting the scalp giving you the foundation for healthy hair.


 

The next step is to use the ADV Nutrition Conditioner, this conditioner consists of botanical stem cells to nourish the hair making it soft and tangle-free. Pat dry your hair after shampooing and apply the conditioner to damp hair avoiding the scalp and allow it to be absorbed into the hair for 1 to 2 minutes before washing it off.

The fourth and final step is to apply to shake the bottle of ADV Soothe Tonic well sectioned the hair onto a towel-dried scalp and massage the scalp with your fingertips this is a leave-on tonic for daily use. The tonic gives off a cooling sensation and strengthens the scalp resistance and balance.



Every time I am done with the shower I feel as if I have left a spa or salon, my hair is fragrant, shiny, full of life and soft to the touch. Each step of the ADV Soothe Daily regime really contributes to pampering your hair by distinctively focusing on every aspect of your hair and scalp needs in my case, relieve me from the infuriating itch of my sensitive scalp, I no longer have to bear the sweaty and inflamed feeling of my scalp and can focus better on my day, the series by  PHS HAIRSCIENCE has indeed soothed and improved the condition of my scalp and with regular use, I believe I would reap the full benefits. I highly recommend  PHS HAIRSCIENCE Shampoos, Conditioners and Tonics as they really fulfil their promise in improving your hairs health and gives you the premium experience in the comfort of your home.

Kudos By Headlines Hairdressing Rinka Best Straightening Hair Treatment in Chinatown Singapore - By Sweet Bunny

Ken invited me down to the Salon to try out their newly launched, Rinka Aqua Care Product, his timing was impeccable because my long locks were weighing me down and I felt it was time to give my hair a new lease of life. If you have read my earlier post I have been a huge fan of Ken for the last couple of year and whenever there is a promotion or new product at the salon I am always willing to lend my support.

Rinka Aqua Hair Care  Straightening Treatment



Aqua Hair Treatment – What sets Rinka Aqua Care apart from other anti-frizzing hair treatments is its Aqua PPT quality which is a hair repair ingredient giving you strong healthy hair this amazing product  rids your hair of fizziness is 100% formaldehyde-free which is a plus for pregnant ladies and can last up to five month. The price range for Rinka Aqua Care Straightening is from Rinka $260.00-$350.00 (pricing is dependent on the length and volume of your hair).

Ken helped me snip off half the length of my hair to a nice shoulder-length style as I requested, I felt much lighter without feeling burdened by the weight of my hair. A trim every now and then helps you to eliminate split ends which prevent your hair from splitting all the way to the root with the addition of Rinka Aqua Care hair straightening treatment my hair felt silky smooth and soft to the touch.  You must also remember to take good care of your scalp only when your scalp is healthy you will have less hair fall and dandruff. With the La Biosthetique scalp treatment that I was given after I had straightening done, I know that I was well taken care of.

Why hair care and maintenance is important – I went for hair colouring with Kudos by Headlines Hairdressing earlier in January this year and within four months my hair was overgrown and heavy. Haircare is not only just about personal hygiene where just you wash it and you are good to go, it requires maintenance every couple of months at a trusted salon. Just like any part of your body where you are subjected to harsh weather and pollution your hair needs the same amount of effort and care.

Only the best for their customer at Kudos By Headlines Hairdressing – Ken and Gary have always gone by the philosophy of giving their customers the best. The salon has a switch to Dyson Hairdryers which felt fantastic when my hair was being dried, I felt really pampered. I was wondering what the whole Dyson hairdryer hype was about but now I felt the difference for myself.  To me, the salon is a hidden gem in the heart of Chinatown always a treat to visit and worth the trip each time.

Best Mucota colouring and mucota Infinia 3 step repair treatment at Kudos by Headlines Hairdressing - Sweet Bunny




The black the root of my hair has grown out and for months I haven’t had the time to touch-up my hair. I always seek Ken from Kudos by headlines hairdressing whenever I needed to get my hair taken care off, He is very dedicated in his craft and had been on course in London and Japan. I have known Ken for about 4 years now. He has always resided in Chinatown a place which is very convenient to get to thanks to the MRT station.

Kudos by headline hairdressing



The best Japanese Hair dye Mucota Colour – Mucota colour is very versatile it has a range of 93 colours and is able to achieve many different tones and shades. The best part about this hair dye is it is long-lasting and doesn’t fade as much as other brands do over time. I actually wanted to return to my natural hair colour of black but Ken advised me that it is too dark and a darker shade of brown would look more natural.

Maintaining your hair colour – To ensure that your colour job last longer, please wait for a day to allow the colour to set before washing your hair, also use shampoos and conditioners meant for coloured hair.
The Best Japanese Hair Treatment after dying your hair Mucota Infinia 3step repair treatment – It is important to get the treatment done right after you have dyed your hair to prevent over-drying or fizziness. Mucota Infina treatment repairs hair cuticles layers which in turn allows hair to retain the treatment molecules. What I like about this treatment is the fact that it is lightweight and doesn’t weigh down my hair. It also works on a wide range of hair from healthy hair, bleached hair and even fine thin hair which Caucasian ladies usually have. Mucota Infina consists of amino acids such as PPT and CMC which replenish proteins within the hair to strengthen the hair from within.

Red Hair Colour , L’Oréal color - Sweet Bunny

For 2019 I wanted to get a fresh new look.

After watching the Aquaman movie I was in awe of Mera's gorgeous red hair and decided to give a shot. The last time I dyed my hair that colour was ages ago back in the early 2000s… 10 years later, I have to say that hair chemicals has improved… Hair is no longer grass dry and damaged after being dyed. 

Hair colour that won't break the office dress code- Don't get me wrong I love the vibrant red of Mera's hair but it is was a little loud for me, not appropriate for a front line day job as I have to uphold a corporate image. I asked Ken my trusty hair stylist for a recommendation from the colour chart and he picked a lighter shade that would be more obvious under the light, a peek-a-boo kind of shade that was not so obvious.



Hair colour for skin tone – It is important to know your skin tone to match your hair shade, you would want your skin and hair to complement each other. I have warm tanned skin and the red shade gives me a pop of colour.

If you are unsure of what your skin tone is.  Check out this quiz I found by https://www.vixendaily.com, it is pretty accurate:

They also have a whole series of quizzes you could do to truly find out which shades and would matches your skin the most.


Red hair is great for all ages – There is so much you can do with red highlights and dyes, different hues from burgundy to orange, copper, ginger and bronze which easily give you that extra dimension to your hair from the otherwise flat look. The possibilities are endless just ensure that it suits your skin tone.

Red dyed hair care – It is normal to experience some bleeding of the hair colour for the first couple of washes, especially for dark bold or vivid colours like blue or red, due to the porosity of the hair or unsuitability of the hair dye. I was advised to wash my hair every 2 days and after my fourth wash, my hair colour has stopped bleeding.

Conclusion on my hair dye job – I dyed my hair brown last August and I am glad that the new red did not fuse to the brown; I once read in a magazine that hair colour fusing is possible. Ken is indeed very skilled he, at the start of every appointment he would study my hair and ask questions on when my last dye job was and if I used any other products before working on my hair. I love my new hair colour it gave my hair a new lease of life, I look refreshed and ready to go, Cheers to kicking off 2019 with a bang!


Focus Hairdressing in Chinatown point has been my go-to salon for the past couple of years, Ken and Jane are the nicest stylists I know, they are always attentive and always share their professional options on what styles, cuts, treatments and colours would suit me best.

When to give up long locks - Sweet Bunny

I just snipped off my long locks of hair... Are you crazy you are getting married next year, what a waste! Was my colleague’s reaction at work..



unsplash-logoRosalind Chang

Well ... I rather have healthy hair then long damaged, filled with split ends ... Earlier on this year, I was a hair model for my friend's hair styling exam and assisted with perming and rebonding my hair within a week, not advised highly damaging but totally worth it because my friend passed with flying colours.

The health of your hair affects its radiance so look out for these tell tales signs for unhealthy hair which requires trimming:

Knotted and tangled hair - While brushing your hair if you noticed many knots and tangles, it is time to go for a trim, instead of using a comb to forcefully unknot and detangle your hair which may cause breakage to the hair.

Get rid of split ends – split ends are never a pretty sight and worst they can break faster as the splits travel up the hair strands to the scalp, split hair appears translucent, weak and thin compared to regular healthy hair. Spite ends are easily detected because usually the tip of the hair has white bulbs on them. Hence snipping off these the ends could really salvage your hair.

When your hair is flat – Lack of volume and not the usual structure your hair usually is? Schedule a trim to give your hair that extra lively bounce.

If you frequently colour your hair – an indicator that your hair suffers from hair damage is the colour not being able to hold and fades, it loses its elasticity and easily snaps or breaks when wet. Highlighting and bleaching cause the most damage to the ends of your hair bearing in mind that the ends of your hair are the oldest part and the most fragile.


Heat damaged hair – Blow drying and styling of hair can cause heat damage from constant usage of hair irons and curlers contributing to lifeless hair. Having fizziness and static looking hair is also another indication to get a trim. Deep conditioning and limiting usage of hair iron and curlers helps prevents heat damage.

What if I do not want to trim my hair – You could always approach your stylist for treatments for your hair it helps but does not resolve split ends.

The length of my hair is now shorter but I am glad that it is to be bouncy, shiny and healthy before it was rigged with split ends with white bulbs appearing at the ends of my hair from heat damage. I do miss my long hair but the consolation is hair always grows back. So do head over to the salon to get that trim every few months? It also does wonders if your layered hair becomes uneven and untidy.

I have been going to Focus Hairdressing Chinatown for the past 2 years and my favourite hairstylist is Ken, He is attentive, patient and super skilful when it comes to the art of hairstyling. What I like most about him is he doesn’t go all trigger happy and hack off all your hair but always ask how much would be ok to trim off.

Korean Shampoo & Conditioner; Innisfree green tea mint fresh shampoo Review by Sweet Bunny - Singapore Beauty Blogger



Korean Beauty Products in Singapore  - When the Korean wave came to the shores of Singapore a decade ago, it was no surprise that Korean beauty products would sprout into our retail sector. I recently purchased Innisfree green tea mint fresh shampoo and conditioner, what attracted me to this shampoo as you would guess is the mint, I am a huge fan of minty shampoos as you read about in my previous review about on Broo Beer Shampoo.

How I got super soft hair, Oway Flowerfall hair spa review. Sweet Bunny - Singapore's Lifestyle, Hair & Beauty Blogger




The Month of May had been a stressful month for me and all I wanted to do was to unwind, relax and rejuvenate my senses. No surprise that I approached Focus Hairdressing after hearing about their Oway - flowerfall promotion for the month of June and July 2018. For haircut and flowerfall treatment priced at SGD$110.00, usually priced at SGD$200.00

An introduction to Oway herbs & clay peeling cleansing – At the beginning of the session, Jane asked me how I was feeling and if I would prefer a relaxing blend or a vitalizing one, She at that juncture gave me a head neck and shoulder massage after applying the blend to my scalp. There were 3 blends to choose from and these are the benefits of each blend:

Why use a wooden comb and what are the benefits of using a wooden comb on your hair - Sweet Bunny - Singapore's Hair, Beauty & Lifestyle blogger


After experimenting with the beer shampoo my hair at one point become uncontrollably frizzy, silky but frizzy what a combination! Combing my hair with my traditional plastic comb did not make things a walk in the park both because I was starting to get split ends and it does nothing for the fizziness.


My colleague from work noticed the condition of my hair and suggested using wooden combs; honestly, this was the first time I ever heard of combs made of wood, the majority of the combs I see in the market are of the plastic variety.




Plastic combs are easily available in Singapore compared to wooden combsWhen you enter any major retail mall, most of the stores only carry plastic combs, the only store where I knew I could find a wooden one with exceptional quality is The Body Shop.





The alternative sources for purchasing a wooden comb in Singapore – Well the other alternatives are shopping online, websites such as Qoo10, Lazada and mobile applications such as Carousell are excellent places to purchase a wooden comb, but take note of the sellers' reviews before finalizing your purchase.





Where I chose to make my purchase - The Body Shop has always had a good reputation for being known for their support of environmentally friendly practices. They also carry a range of brushes which are made from bamboo. Most importantly the materials used to make these combs come from sustainable sources, well-managed forest certified by Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified beech wood.

Ever since I had the Oway Hair Treatment at Focus Hairdressing, I have gotten into a craze for mint shampoos, not just any mint shampoo but those which do not consist of sulfate and other genetically modified organisms. Although not cancer-causing, sulfate can cause moisture lost from your skin and hair consequently causing dry skin and hair, not something you want to do to your scalp because as the scalp dries over time it will produce skin flacks which look very much like dandruff but the flacks are smaller in size.

The Oway hair treatment was presented to me because Aiko explained that it is an organic product consist of plants and herbs that are good for your scalp, it can be used for dandruff and sensitive scalp as well. Manufactured in Italy, Oway is the preferred choice in many professional salons. Aiko also enlightens me on the fact that scalp care is very important, it determents the health of your hair which in turn helps reduce hair fall.

Oway Purifying Treatment Process - We began the treatment with Aiko using a hair follicle scanner to analyze the condition of my scalp, it was really cool that thru Aiko’s mobile phone was linked to the scanner and I was able to view my scalp. My scalp was in an alright condition, I had no dandruff but it was a little on the dry side.

C curl Reboot at Focus Hairdressing - Chinatown Point Branch

It has been six month since I done my hair at Focus Hairdressing, sadly due to neglect and poor management. The ends of my hair were really dry.



Finally got my C Curls at Focus Hairdressing - Chinatown Point Branch

I had always wanted to get c curls done because I felt the s curls that other hair stylist insisted on for me, did not suit me.  Due to the fact that I prefer a low maintenance kind of hairstyle. Time and time again I was told No the c curl is not for you.



Time for hair treatment @ Salon No. 1

My hair was overgrown and in duo colours of brown and black due to the failed ombre dye job I had in malaysia. Dry as grass and in desperate need for a hair cut and treatment, I decided to approach a stylist who I knew who was skilled and reliable.

Getting My Curls Redone at Act Point Salon

My previous perm and dye was horrible, the lower half of my hair was dead, fried, indescribably DRY !


Lucky for me a friend's favourite hairstylist named Chris came to my rescue. He was extra careful in handling my hair, cutting off all the damaged areas away. Treating my hair before perming. The result was awesome !




Getting my hair done at Start From Here Studio KSL City, JB

A friend of mine wanted to get her hair done so after a friendly discussion over lunch we decided  to go to JB.  We headed to KSL City where there were many branches of salons and decided on Start From Here Studio.

I wanted to perm my hair to have a change from the straight reboned look that I was used to and bored with.The stylist were patient and professional giving us advise on the which colours would go together better.

The whole process of dying my hair ombre dark brown and green, perming and treatment took 6 hours.


Revamping my hair for the new year

I do not really have the habit of going to the salon regularly to groom or restyle my hair, It is more of a yearly routine for me.


Yes... I was stuck with an untidy mess of a shoulder-length ... Speechless ... Crappy looking do.

New Year New Hair !

The last time I dyed my hair was when I was 18 years old. This year tired of my dull black hair I decided to get a change, hair makeover Singapore.


                                                   Yes as you can see I really needed a change badly...


Taming the mane @ Jean Kiat Salon 1

My hair has turned into a disastrous frizzy mess due to neglect for the last 2 years because of my packed schedule.


 Dear was a sweetheart and offer to pay for my rebonding. Deciding which salon to go for the treatment was a huge headache as many people online have mixed opinions on which salon is good and which isn't, so I ended going to a salon near dear's place. Jean Kiat Salon 1 Northpoint branch. I asked them what product would they be using, they said it's some Korean brand. Total cost of rebonding and treatment is $180.



While getting my hair done, I gotten a little bored reading magazines so I decided to google the salon and see what their ratings are like. To my horror they weren't good. 



My first reaction was OH BOY what did I get myself into. In the cosycot forum, a thread from  2 years back gave the salon a horrific review, the girl's hair was practically fried during her rebonding ! Others cotters have also shared their experiences in that thread.


Well I told myself that was 2 years ago and since I'm already halfway through, might as well grit my teeth and get this over and done with, if it turns out badly the most I'll never come again.

Contrary to what was said 2 years ago, my stylist Bobby the youngest of the male stylist was awesome. He was a joy to chat with, considerate always asking me if it was too hot or was he handling my hair too roughly. He did a great job with my hair, giving me tips on how to care for it and all. It didn't turn out frizzy or dry at all.

After 3 hours my hair was done, "Ah don't you look much neater now" Bobby exclaim, indeed it was a million times neater. Thanks Bobby !

This has been the fastest rebonding treatment I ever had. My hair is stubborn and would usually take 5 to 8 hours to straighten.It was a very pleasant surprise that is was done in only 3 hours.

Here are some pics of the final result ...





  Pretty neat huh :P I love the fact that it looks natural not the mop straight kindda rebonding where your hair looks ridiculously flat .

The real test now is to see how long it will last .
