I don’t suppose I’m the only one that has this majorly annoying dry hair ends that look like hay. For those of you who have similarly damaged hair like mine, come come, let’s commiserate together about how appalling it looks. Not to mention also how painful it is to comb through; the tugging, pulling, yanking are so uncomfortable. :'( This is why I hate washing my hair at home. I’m beginning to seriously question how the heck this hay hair has come about. I mean, I don’t recall having hair this damaged previously so I’m going to attribute this to the recent years of bleaching/coloring and also this darned humidity in Singapore.
An intervention was called for and this time I went for Shu Uemura Art of Hair’s Intense Ceremony hair treatment at Salon de Choix.
Tea ceremonies were invented in Japan as the utmost demonstration of respect and rare quality. It symbolizes the paragon of precision, aesthetics and a philosophy of constantly aiming for perfection. Mirroring the tea ceremony, a Shu Uemura Art of Hair beauty ceremony is an exclusive treatment for unique made-to-measure care and a sensorial journey.
Sharon Wu, director of Salon de Choix, diagnosed my hair as unruly and recommended the appropriate hair products from the exclusive Shu Uemura line. The step by step of this hair ceremony are outlined below.
Step 1: Essense Absolue Nourishing Protective Oil was applied to the ends of my hair to soften the frizziness. Followed by a scalp analysis where debris was loosened by gently brushing all over with a couple of paddle brushes. This prepared the scalp for the next step.
Step 2: Scalp Cleansing Oil made up of natural essential oils derived from Cedarwood, Ginger and Safflower was applied and massaged onto the scalp. This cleansing oil has calming, soothing, relaxing and stimulating properties along with astringent effect.
Step 3: Hair was shampooed using Cleansing Oil Shampoo and this is a gentle cleanser (similar to the popular Shu Uemura facial cleansing oils). The concept here is to rid hair oil with essential oil.
Step 4: After hair and scalp were thoroughly cleansed, the Shusu Sleek deep nourishing treatment cream was applied to my hair. Formulated with Black Cumin Oil, this product disciplines the hair fiber to make it smooth and satiny.
Step 5: After about 15 minutes or so, hair was rinsed once again and ready to be styled. Essense Absolue Nourishing Protective Oil was applied once again on hair ends for a smooth sleek finish. Now let’s look at the results together, shall we?
A picture speaks a thousands words but I can also think of a few choice words to describe the “before” condition of my hair, such as: grotesque, appalling, severely dry, rough, disgusting. And for “after”: silky, smooth, satiny, soft, shiny, bouncy. :D
I have very fine hair so I guess when it gets frizzy, my hair really does look like hay. Ugh! Being a girl really sucks sometimes because there’s so much maintenance involved in looking good and I frankly have neither a lot of patience nor energy for it. But there’s no way around it as I, like everyone else, want to look good. And I always say: “When you look good, you naturally feel good!”. :) :) :)
