I went to Hair Inc a week ago to have my serious dark brown hair restored since the color from the last dye faded.
Before and After
Yes, I know it's not THAT much of a difference. But we can't all have the hair color we wish for when we have to work :(
Totally and Completely crediting Hair Inc's Director Kenneth Goh for this post's information (in blue).
Here are 3 common myths about hair colouring and see if you know which ones are true:
Myth 1: Do not wash your hair before colouring; the dirtier and oilier, the better
Yes, you shouldn't wash away the natural oils in your hair before colouring, because these oils can help protect your scalp from irritation caused by the chemicals
Myth 2: Using chamomile tea can naturally lighten your hair
That's right, the yellow colour of chamomile can be used as a hair lightener, especially good for brightening blond hair
Myth 3: Products claiming that they're made for coloured hair are useless
In fact, they're really important! They contain ingredients that will help prevent your hair colour from stripping and will give it a longer lasting colour.
I went to the Serangoon Gardens outlet, and the stylists were very friendly, offering drinks and wifi password despite me telling them consistently that I needed neither (and then I was offered food haha)
I went on a Sunday, and there was some free space/time, so at one point in time I had 3 stylists blow-drying my hair O.O. Cherrie did my hair treatment, washed, and dyed my hair, and Jameson trimmed my hair. Both are great stylists to book :)
The experience was comfortable and they didn't try to hard sell anything.

There are also promotion vouchers on their website you can download, and till 15 October 2016 there's a complimentary 3-Step hair colour treatment worth $68 - $108 with any hair colouring service. Not applicable with other promotions.
It's Friday Everyone!!!
Time to reflect on the week / your work life in view of the upcoming weekends.
You can be doing awesomely well, loving your job, but still be extremely stressed out.
You can love the work you do but feel immense pressure from it. And, as it turns out, the symptoms caused by stress can be pretty detrimental to your health and well being — so it’s important that you recognize the signs that your job is stressing you out, and do what you can to reduce the tension as quickly as possible.
Here are some signs you're job is stressing you out:
So there. Before your next Sunday Night Blues strikes you. ENJOY the rest of your Friday and saturday, and know that there is nothing greater than family and your loves one.
Happy Midweek Ladies!!!!! (Bolded the middle exclamation mark haha)
Sometimes I really admire and love, and wish and hope that I live in the United States. Sample Sales, Budding Designers, Aesthetic Stimulation everywhere. More than Singapore anyway.
Before you think Sample sales are really just cheap out-dated crap sales, let me explain. Since designing pieces along with selecting curated designs, I've learnt that samples are crazy lot of work. You design, propose material and cutting, sketch, choose the actual fabric, see the arrived sample (Sometimes they aren't awesome, or you think the market may not be ready for it) etc, then battle round two of the amendments in cutting, material etc before production. Each design takes like a month. So along the way, some designs can axed. Sometimes designs are awesome, but the cost doesn't give you a profit margin. Every sample is hard work and blood, show some respect.
Sorry, I digress.

Such love for structured bags!
I guess my favourite thing about them is that things don't slide around as much, so you don't look so sad standing on the spot sliding your arm everywhere inside your bag trying to find what you need.
But then again structured bags have limited space, and sometimes the flap doesn't close. But we can't have the best of both worlds.
Look Sharp Ladies!
