Friday, November, 4th was the greatest day so far.
I had a chance for coming to L'oreal Headquarter in Jakarta to be part of L'oreal Academy Makeover through this sweet girl's giveaway, Carnellin. She offered 3 types of makeover, and i was picked Inoa Hair Color but I switched to Japanese Smoothing with Tina, another blogger because, obviously her hair is already really smooth and thin ;p
Before we do any further, the L'oreal first must-to-do thing is consulting, what kind of treatment we would like, what is the appropriate color, etc. Then, the hair stylist can diagnose your hair, is it healthy/ normal, or sensitive, and what products needed, cause they need to be treated differently. And my hair is a combination type, so they combined 2 of their products.
They see my hair need to be smoothened, so they choose this Glossy Smooth (Japanese Smoothing) treatment for me.
Lucky me, this is not the first smoothing ive ever done, but this is a little different than any basic smoothing, since they will color my hair too with Richesse! How great is that! The most two things that i really need are merged together in one package.
Here are my 'before' appearances, light brown hair, dry hair, un-even color, and lion-like hair :)
Wash your hair with a shampoo, make sure it's clean enough or you can do it twice to make sure it's clean. Remember, don't use any conditioner, cause it will ruin the whole process, just use a shampoo.
After shampooed and towel-dried hair, using this L'oreal Inner Logic to prevent damage on your damaged hair and bring back the elasticity. Apply it in the end of your hair.
There are two types of this cream, M is purposed to damage hair, and N is purposed to normal hair, Mas Ambar (my personal hair stylist) apply the N first on my half top hair (avoid the scalp), and then apply the M cream to the rest of my hair. Wait approx. 15 minutes then rinse your hair.
Blow dry your hair, and continuing to steamed your hair. The funny part is that the steamed flat iron is kinda new and all the hair stylist didn't have the time to try it yet, so they have the chance to try it on my hair, haha (there are 2 other persons who didn't get caught on my camera).
I got to tell you that the steamed flat iron is pretty amazing, it's dry-free, purposed to smoothing hair treatment and it is called Steam Pod.
Apply the neutralize cream, this is the determinant point, this cream decide all the smoothing thingy. Such as, if you apply it too much and too near the scalp, it will give you the really sleek hair, and the opposite. Wait approx. 15 minutes and rinse your hair again.
After rinsed (you can see that my hair is thinner, rite?) It's coloring time! Using the L'oreal Richesse, i'm not asking a light color, i just need to cover my un-even colored hair, so Mas Ambar decided to use a dark brown color. Again, wait until 15 minutes, and then rinse it.
I feel like i'm starting my new life! It's fresh and modern, and i said bye bye to my frizzy yet un-controlled hair back then, hahaha. For you who have a hair like me, you should try this Glossy Smooth X-Tenso, you can ask a level of the sleek-ness so don't worry :)
We also got a free make up from Lancome, stay with me for Lancome review :D (and i feel a lil bit like Kristen Stewart in Runaways, no? haha)
