bhave smoothe, bhave smoothe keratin treatment, bhave smooth, bhave smooth plus,

Some people (i.e. non-Asians) assume that ALL Asians have long thick straight shiny black hair.  IT IS SOOOO NOT TRUE!

Exhibit A – ME!

Me with the hair which has a mind of its own.  Me with the hair which is dry and unruly.  Me with the hair nemesis, HUMIDITY.  Me with the pubic-like frizzy hair.  Come on ladies, you know what I mean!!!

If you’re like me and you’re fed up of straightening your hair every day just to beat the frizzies, allow me to point you in the direction of bhave smoothe keratin therapy.

I was literally on Cloud Nine, when this sexy, sleek, black curling iron –> The Micro Wand <– was sent to me whilst I was heavily pregnant (around 37 weeks) in November.  Now if I hadn’t been doing my Kegel exercises, I may have had a “wee” accident (pun very much intended!).

Anyway, the Cloud Nine Micro Wand and I have been friends for over 6 months now so it’s about time that I show you what I love about it (yes, it is LOVE) and what magic it can do to transform hair from drab to fab.  Trust me!

How To Trim Your Own Hair & Colour It Like A Pro

How to Trim Your Own Hair & Colour It

Before I went on holiday, I had been suffering from consecutive bad hair days.  I blamed the baby.  { I blame everything on my poor baby! => first sign of a bad mother 😛 }  Anyway, to combat this, I decided to give myself a DIY hair makeover.

DIY hair makeovers are fantastic for new mummies like me because :-

1.  It means you don’t have to find a babysitter or take a cranky baby to a hair salon.
2.  You can save money.  Nappies are expensive and babies pee / poo a lot.
3.  It beats having to do housework when the baby is napping.

For my DIY hair makeover, I gave myself a trim PLUS coloured my hair.  It was super easy and here’s how I did it with some helpful hints for you to attempt your own DIY hair makeover.

I’ve Found A Potent Remedy For Dry Hair From Aveda

Aveda Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil

What do you think about the saying – “Good things come in small packages”?

Personally, I don’t always believe that is true.  For example, I much prefer a LARGE McDonald’s fries and I prefer to watch TV in a LARGE 50″ screen rather than squint my eyes watching a small matchbox TV.  (hehe, yes, I have couch potato tendencies!)

But then again, there are awesome small-sized things, such as babies (I love my baby!!) and this amazing little bottle of hair oil goodness that is Aveda Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil.

Review : Shu Uemura Art Of Hair Cleansing Oil Shampoo Gentle Radiance Cleanser

Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil Shampoo, Shu Uemura Art of Hair Cleansing Oil Shampoo

Shu Uemura, quite possibly my ultimate all-time favourite beauty brand, were the first to introduce cleansing oils as part of a skincare routine.  Well, did you know they have brought out cleansing oil for hair too?  No, I didn’t know either until a few months ago when I was invited to the opening of Maison Tsumiki, a luxurious hair salon which is one of 4 exclusive Shu Uemura Art of Hair stockists in Victoria.  I got chatting to salon owner Linda Nishimura and she raved about Shu Uemura Art Of Hair Cleansing Oil Shampoo Gentle Radiance Cleanser and my interest was piqued after that night.  Needless to say, I was super delighted when I got a chance to try the product myself :)
