The process itself feels like forever, I come around 12.30 noon (whoever think it was midnight should be questioned). After a hair wash, my hair is blow dry until almost all dry and given an anti frizz spray almost evenly, I don't think it was enough thou' but I'm not a pro or maybe I love having more anti frizz spray :)
Then they start putting this white thick cream to my hair, the scent is mild and I'm not complaining at all but during the application sometime my hair got pulled. The stylist finished the white cream section by section avoiding the root.
After 30 minutes he checked on my hair condition and re-apply the white cream. This time the pulling get worse, not necessarily super painful but each stroke it like pulled my hair one or two strands (boo hoo).
Then after another 30 minutes wait, they washed my hair with warm semi hot water and making sure no (touchable) chemical are left. Then they dry my hair using blow dryer and apply another anti-frizz spray from Makarizo. The flat irons begins now, yes they use two. Familiar method with rebonding. I've done rebonding twice, once in Jakarta and once in Singapore. Both are so different in result, professionalism and of course price.
After about an hour flattening (yes, I know it's straightening but flat is more accurate) my hair and got myself thinking "what do I get myself into?", it seems that the salon didn't use a high quality flat iron so it kept pulling my hair. A very good iron use ion straightening....I know this from my sis and the guy at a pricey salon.
My hair is flat, as you see in the picture. So now left with coloring. I used to hate my double colored hair from the previous color and newly grown hair, so this is an opportunity for me for a new color. I never been brown before. Red? Yes, Purple? Yes, Blonde? Yes, Black? Definitely, Bluish Black? Yup. So brown is my turn now. I love chocolate color and I think it's a hit now.
The application of the color is like usual and it went for about one and a half hour. I love my new color so much. Finishing they wash my hair, again, and blow dry, use some serum for my hair and another round of flattening iron for an hour....it pretty much sums up to 5 hours.
After 5 exhausting hours of flattening my butt err hair, the stylist told me not to wash my hair for 3 consecutive days....thanks, next time remind me before all of these begins. I can't even stand have to wash my hair less than once a day. I like my hair clean and airy. 3 days is a lot of misery for me.
Take note: During application if the stylist told you the chemical was somewhat touch your neck area and he says it's okay...it's not, I got some rash afterwards on my neck and it could be an allergic reaction to various chemical. Another tips from me, decide on your own which side your hair would fall into, do you like hairs to go sideways or all fall to the back, etc. Don't let strangers decide, you'll regret it like me. When I'm in Singapore the stylist would ask how I like my hair, but yesterday they didn't. So I look like Aaron Kwok 80's style. Yikes!
But overall, I like how tidy my hair now, I know it would need some treatment afterwards, I don't meant salon treatment, my advice buy a good hair mask and do it at home whenever you feel like it. A serum after each shampooing, and to bear for the 3 days fasting? Dry shampoo!
Pic may not belongs to me, I'm not admitting.
World No Tobacco Day31 May 2011
On 31st May each year WHO celebrates World No Tobacco Day, highlighting the health risks associated with tobacco use and advocating for effective policies to reduce consumption. Tobacco use is the second cause of death globally (after hypertension) and is currently responsible for killing one in 10 adults worldwide.
The World Health Assembly created World No Tobacco Day in 1987 to draw global attention to the tobacco epidemic and its lethal effects. It provides an opportunity to highlight specific tobacco control messages and to promote adherence to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. Tobacco use is the number one preventable epidemic that the health community faces.

Etude Yoghurt Wash-Off Pack is a mask that seems to give moisture. Sorry, no details on the packaging and it seems that the salesgirls also haven't even try one...or perhaps any of Etude products.
How To Use:
Clean your face properly and after the toner just generously spread a thick milky of yoghurt (gel) mask on to your face. The scent is gorgeous and I just love it. The moisturizing effect is obviously felt on the first touch. Massage the skin well. Use some pressure point on some location but you can just massage it overall. Leave it on for 10 minutes or more if you like.
Clean it with a warm water to rinse of the residue. You'll noticed that your skin is fairer, dewy and moist afterwards.
Each of the guess are entitled for a goodies bag from Female Magazine, filled with many variety of magazines, Irwan Team voucher, and a scarf.
While waiting, a hot ocha from Sushi Tei soothe my throat nicely. I'm not well at the moment and so glad to forced myself to the event.
The last meal provided is a beef salad and some fruits which I think have the best dressing in the whole wide world....or I ever tested.
Now I'm gonna redeem my Murano beads that come in Lovelinks goodies bag.
The colors are lovely and bright, I do have difficulty picking just one.
For all of you at home, open up the website of Lovelinks <---- click there, and try arrange a bead on your own. Warning! The actual beads look a lot lovelier.

> > Thanks for the reply. After reading your review on Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water gel, I would like to give it a try but is it suitable for oily skin? Is the Hydro Boost Clear Lotion effective too?
> > How about Neutrogena Oil Free Moisturizer?
> > Hope to receive your reply soon.
> > Cheers,
> > senders
> Neutrogena hydro boost water gel is suitable for me since my skin is combination of normal to dry, i think if your skin really oily (pardon me for saying this my skin used to be told oily by some beauty therapist who are clueless and misdiagnosed me) this product may not be suitable for you since it will create some kind of layer that perfect for dry skin to keep the moisture intact. So if your skin (again) really oily you'll find your face looking so shiny and makeup easily ran away from you.
> As for the lotion I haven't tried it, sorry about that one. I think I've tried the tester only :(
> Neutrogena Oil free moisturizer will be more suitable for oily skin since the light creamy lotion will absorb fast and gives your skin the moisture it need not the oily feeling. But if your skin is dry like mine you will feel the lotion doesn't gives you enough moisture and too dry.
> My suggestion is Za cool pool, but now they changed the name into Za Deep Hydrating Gel. It's light but not as light as Neutrogena Oil Free moisturizer but definitely not heavy. I haven't found anyone complaining about that one beside than being addictive. It's kinda my all time fave moisturizer since it's refreshing, smells really good and it's just perfect.
> But moisturizer is personal, you might have to go through a lot of products to found your ultimate fave (I know I did). Get samples, try many testers and observe how your skin react.
> Btw, I went to Clinique woodland branch to get my type of skin checked, unfortunately I forgot her name, and she diagnosed my skin type correctly. Thanks to her I know my skin type now and can easily buy/use/get the right product for my skin type.
> Clinique at Tangs, male beauty advisor? Got it wrong and insist my skin is oily.
> I hope you know your skin type exactly to avoid getting the wrong product :)
> Sorry for the long reply, I hope it helps.
Yes, I hope it help you too.
Yes, there's a lot of demand coming from one person, take note that your skin can change, it can be hormonal, aging process, diet, environment changing, developed allergy, sickness, sudden change of stress, and many many more. So when you check your skin during puberty and it was so last decade, do check again to know your exact skin type and what it need at the moment.
Results: perfectly hydrated, skin is visibly brighter.
Texture: Light and non greasy, the texture of White Perfect Day Cream SPF 17 PA++, is quickly absorbed, leaving your skin soft and comfortable, with no feeling of stickiness.
Help unload existing melanin in skin layers. It works to help remove the cells loaded with melanin to brighten up skin complexion.

As for Babassu Oil, here's what I got from Wikipedia:
Babassu oil or cusi oil is a clear light yellow vegetable oil extracted from the seeds of the babassu palm (Attalea speciosa), which grows in the Amazon region of South America. It is a non-drying oil used in food, cleaners and skin products. This oil has properties similar to coconut oil and is used in much the same context. It is increasingly being used as a substitute for coconut oil. Babassu oil is about 70% lipids, in the following proportions:
Fatty acid Percentage Lauric 50.0% Myristic 20.0% Palmitic 11.0% Oleic 10.0% Stearic 3.5%
Lauric and myristic acids have melting points relatively close to human body temperature, so babassu oil can be applied to the skin as a solid that melts on contact. This heat transfer can produce a cooling sensation. It is an effective emollient.
In skin care, Babassu Oil is used for its soothing, protective and emollient properties. Babassu Oil penetrates quickly and does not leave a greasy after feel.Data from FromNatureWithLove.com
