Salon Vim: BYEBYE Purple hair

Now that my examinations are over, I finally have time to clear the overdued posts from Feb till now!

Honestly speaking, I think that SP was trying to torture us students by extending the exam period from 4th of feb to the 26th -.-

But either way, now that that's done and over with, here comes the overdued posts!

I went to Salon Vim Bugis to have the Redken chemistry treatment before CNY starts. My hair was REALLY REALLY dry due to the multiple hair bleaching sessions I've had previously on > Going blonde with Salon Vim  & Salon Vim: I am a grape . Soooo a hair treatment session is needed in order for me to have fabulous hair for the new year lol.

Basically the Redken Chemistry system is a professional treatment collection that adds shine and strength, seals the hair cuticle, and adds a brilliant gloss that lasts for at least 3 weeks for those who've done it! The system uses an " inside-out-approach " to creating healthier and shiny hair.
 First, I was given a hair diagnosis session and shampoo.

After which, they proceeded with applying the Extreme Cat to reconstruct my hair.
As you see from the chart above, the chemistry hair treatment is customized based on the individual hair needs and can improve the quality of your hair in just 5minutes !!!! The formula treatments provides immediate results after just one treatment.

They include 6 different shots that can be b;ended in for a customized/personalized treatment.

  • Strength shot for distressed hair
  • Protect shot for color-treated hair
  • Soft shot for dry/brittle hair
  • Anti-frizz shot for very dry/unruly hair
  • Real control shot for dense/dry/sensitized hair
  • Dandruff control shot for dry/flaky scalp

Basically this treatment is a 3 step procedure to ensure you leave the salon with smooth and shiny hair x)

On with Step 2!!!
And after we're done with shot 2, preparations of the shots and hair mask!
 My own personalized hair treatment to suit my hair needs :D
 And application of the mask. The entire process lasted last than an hour too!

And then they'll steam your hair with this blue thingy which helps the mask to penetrate better into your hair follicles!
TADAHHHH!!! This is the result! I can has shiny and smooth hair for the New Year!

If you like the above photo, I actually did a mini personal photo-shoot set up before CNY. I'll be posting the photos soon ;)


I went back to Salon Vim again on the 19th as i'm sick of my overly-striking hair colour :x Decided to go BACK TO BLACK!
Last photo of my purple hair!! 
 AND TADAH! I'm back to black lol. Actually it was kinda blue black instead of being pure black. Blame it on the previous purple colour! Jaime helped me to trim my hair and cut off the damaged ends after the dyeing process is completed :)

And the results!!! By now, the color has already faded to another tone :x
And in case you're wondering what color my hair is now, here's a look! 
I'm not sure how many of you have been faithful readers of mine but I actually had this ash green-tone hair 2 years back (2011) when I was still with twister. 

BUT MOVING ON AGAIN, I wanna introduce you to 2 new hair styling products I've got on my hands!
 First up, it's the Redken rough paste 12 working material!
 First you'll have to push the paste up from the bottom of the tube
And out it goes when you press the tip!

The redken rough paste helps to deconstruct your hair with rough, ragged texture and provide it with moveable separation. What i like about this hair paste is that the scent itself isn't too overwhelming and application is very easy!! Another good thing about redken hair products is that it's easily washable without leaving any sticky traces like the ones you would expect from gatsby products.
You can get this hair paste at Salon vim for only $41.90! 

For more reviews of this hairpaste, you can check out
And obviously you will need a hairspray to finish the entire look and make it last the entire day! 

And I recommend this Redken forceful 23 super strength finishing spray!

I've been using this since CNY and I'm really liking it so far! It helps to fix my hair and finish the style I want with ultimate strength, while giving it a lasting lift, shape memory and also frizz-free shine. The scent on the other hand, is kinda overwhelming (kinda smells like tangerine actually) so I wouldn't really recommend heavy application of this spray. 

Similarly, you can get this hairspray at Salon vim for only $42.80 ! The can itself is kinda big so I think that it's really worth the price!
And tadah, here's my finished look :)

  1. Now I get it... Hehe ^.^
    -Jasmine :3

  2. How did you get the green ash tone? I've been trying to get that same hair tone as the one in your pic but mine always comes out reddish when I lighten my hair. I tried mixing a yellow toner with a blue toner to get green but my hair came out more red. I'm a level 2 naturally.

  3. The chic accessory possesses a steep $42,000 price tag that will help match its exalted style.
    They consist of at best you see, the a-one of everything.
    Excellent luck with safe and sound shopping!
