(Review) PCC Hair Treatment at Hair Equation

Hello loves, since my first post for 2018 is on premium masks from ID.AZ Korea, this second post will be on premium hair treatment !!!


It's price is affordable too and the effect is for long term!
Its quite a bargain for me as most treatment these days are temporary only :)

That's me right after my PCC hair treatment. Thank you Daniel from Hair Equation! Me lovin' my strong manes ^^
(Scroll till bottom of the post to see my before-after!!)



I was super excited ever since I was first introduced to the groundbreaking Protection Cheveux Complexe (PCC) treatment last October 2017 and in December 2017 I got to experience it myself at Hair Equation, Setia City Mall (They are a complete hair salon that covers from basic hair cut to colors and treatments. They are one of the few salons that offer PCC treatment in Malaysia).



Who needs Protection Cheveux Complexe (PCC) treatment?
Damaged, brittle hair.

Damaged hair + PCC = regeneration of stronger healthier hair

Why Should You Get It?
Cruelty-free
Prescriptive products (each treatment are tailored to your needs)
Pure premium ingredients (a little goes a long way!)
Handcrafted from purest raw ingredients!
No extra treatment hours (your hair will thank you in the long run!)


~~~



Upon arrival, I was greeted by the kind staff there.

Each step was explained to me and let's jump right in!

With only 4 products, you will achieve stronger hair in 1 hour++!

Process:

Step 1:

 Ampoule aka Complexe 1 Concentrate (only available at salon)
It contains cysteine, criss-linked cysteine, & keratin that repairs broken bonds and helps brittle hair regenerate.

Either use it alone or with other hair chemical. Soak each strand for 5 mins and rinse off. You will smell sulphur scent (but I weirdly like the smell! XD), but do not worry. Your sulphur bonds (strongest bonds) are repairing itself.

Step 2:

Rinse away and wash with La Biosthetique Color System Interactive Shampoo. It has a pleasant fruity-ish smell.

Step 3:

Towel dry your hair. Instead of the conditioner step, apply Complexe 2 Spray follow by a leave on Mask Intense hair mask for 10 minutes. Comb thoroughly.

Step 4:

Steam at the lowest temperature (not necessary!) for 10 minutes. Rinse & blow dry. You will have a smooth, strong and nice smelling hair. ^^

Continuous usage of their La Biosthetique in-home kit will ensure healthier hair in the long run! ^^


~~~


Thoughts:
Overall, service was wonderful!
The image below tells you everything you can expect from just 1 treatment!

Personally, my head and hair feels lighterHair looks amazingly smooth and healthyColor looks refreshed too. Smooth wise not so much (coz its all about the improvement of hair strength!) but nothing a hair mist/oil can't solve!

I was told that if you do this treatment continuously, your hair will slowly regain its smoothness as well. ^^

Price ranges from RM1XX-RM2XX only!!!! Isn't that affordable!
Would definitely return for a second treatment for further review ^^

Masks & Impressions

ID.AZ Dermastic Water-Fit Mask 
(Hydrating)

I totally need hydrating masks coz my T-Zone feels so dry and flaky at certain areas.

Just in case if you need info, all necessary are here :)

Key Ingredients:
Sea water
Sea water collagen
Hyaluronic acid
Panthenol
Betaine
Allantoin

Function:
Hydration

For:
Dry skin

Thoughts:

I love how thin and comfy especially when the material hugs on the curves of my face ^^

The gauze layer was so cool! (Left)
After the 20 minutes application I was surprised seeing the mask still so moist! (Right)

[Film Liner] I was surprised upon opening the packet coz I saw a gauze layer (my first time seeing it!) instead of the usual pearl paper.
[Material/Texture] It is of a super soft, skin-fit sheet that feels very comfortable and adheres like a second skin. Cutout of eye, nose flaps, and lips can be improved.
[Application] It was super easy to apply the mask layer and not drippy at all throughout the 20 minutes application.
[Scent] The scent is very familiar but not sure what. It was not overwhelming and basically did not bother me much.
[Essence/Serum] There were a lot of essence/serum still in packet (about a palm-ful!)
[During Application] Over the course of application it did not dry.
[Upon Removal] Face is moist and feels well hydrated; also redness is slightly reduced. It does have minimal stickiness tho. After skincare step is like usual and nothing tacky or whatsoever.

Here's a before-after using the ID.AZ Dermastic Water-Fit Mask.
*ignore the difference in color lighting*
But in person, I can see my redness is reduced and face feels oh so moist!!^^


ID.AZ Dermastic Bright-Fit Mask
(Brightening)

Brightening mask are essential too!! I use it alternately with the hydrating ones ^^

All necessary info are here ^^

Key Ingredients:
Pearl Extract
Hyaluronic Acid
Green Tea
Licorice
Witch Hazel
Raspberry
Blueberry
Tomato

Function:
Brightening / Tone up

For:
Dull / Dark Skin

Thoughts:

There were so much milky essence upon opening the sachet.

Just me chilling with the microfiber mask. Hopefully I will look more toned up with the pearl extract ^^

Okay, I think I actually look more brightened, don't you think?
The next morning, I feel my skin looks better but horr...not so obvious la in pics.

[Film Liner] I was surprised upon opening the packet coz I also saw a gauze layer (my first time seeing it!).
[Material/Texture] It is of a thicker sheet (compared to the ID.AZ Dermastic Water-Fit Mask), aka the microfiber sheet. Adhesiveness is also great too. Cutout of eye, nose flaps, and lips can be improved.
[Application] Application with the gauze was easy too. Throughout the 20 minutes application, there were no drippy incident and I can walk around doing my stuff.
[Scent] The scent is very familiar too but not sure what. It was more on the perfume-y side with a sweet note. It did not bother me much.
[Essence/Serum] There were a lot of milky essence/serum still in packet (about a palm-ful!)
[During Application] Over the course of application it did not dry.
[Upon Removal] Face feels moist and slightly brightened. However there is slightly more tackiness which I have followed up with the rest of my skincare and sleep. Application of excess serum on my limbs were not tacky at all...why can it not be like that for my face area. :/
The next morning I was shocked coz my face actually feels and look better somehow. XD


ID.AZ Dermastic Golden-Fit Mask
(Nutrition)

I LOVE anything that blings^^
This mask screams 'L U X U R Y' !

All necessary info are here ^^

Key Ingredients:
Gold
Honey
Royal Jelly
Propolis
Red Ginseng Collagen
Ceramide
Aloe
Panthenol

Function:
Deep nourishing

For:
Dry, rough skin
Special treatment
Anyone who wants that luxurious care at affordable price

Thoughts:

Look at my Before and After. I think the result is quite obvious and I was having fun taking selfie during application as well as taking the liberty to tear the mask into pieces after that XD (simply coz I have itchy hands. After tearing, I actually went and rub it into my limbs and saw some tiny spec of gold glitter but it went away after that).

It deserves to have a stand alone picture coz its too pretty!!!!
I must say this is the only time I don't mind an all-over-glow!!
Damn I look cute XD

[Film Liner] I was surprised upon opening the packet coz this time it wasn't the gauze but the plastic layers sandwiching the mask in two parts.
[Material/Texture] It was slightly harder to take the mask out of the packet and I was slightly rough so kinda tore a bit of the gold hydrogel mask. It adheres the best out of the three types of mask. Cutout of eye, nose flaps, and lips can be improved.
[Application] Application with the plastic layer was easy. Throughout the 20 minutes application, there were no drippy incident and I can walk around and dance if I want XD.
[Scent] It smells of something sweet and light.
[Essence/Serum] No essence at all in the packet.
[During Application] Over the course of application it did become slightly dry. It was totally cooling and shiny. I was feeling luxurious and amused so I kept taking pics/vid the whole time. XD
[Upon Removal] It has minimal stickiness and the gel layer has become thinner. After skincare step is like usual and nothing tacky or whatsoever. Face does feel much moisturized an"healthy".

(Event) (First Impression) Mamonde Bubble Floral Party with Mamonde Flower Facial Mask Flower Treatment

Hey lovelies, I never knew Monday can be so happy and relaxing!
Its rare for Mondays to be so well-loved!
Thanks Mamonde for making it happen ^^

Bye Monday Blues
Welcome pink, bubbly Monday!

Mamonde, the floral inspired skincare and beauty expert continues to uncover the hidden power and energizing nutrients of flowers via its latest Flower Facial Mask Line.

They are the Rose, Heartleaf Houttuynia, Calendula, and Evening Primrose.









Each of them helps bring back the women's flourishing beauty via its bouquet of floral goodness according to various skin concerns :)

It is also in-trend these days to incorporate daily facial masking and facial mask layering, which I have yet to pick up.
XD


~~~


It'd be my first time having an in-trend facial mask done at home and here's a few tips I have picked up that day:

1. Eliminate diruptions (off phone)
2. Gather spa supplies
3. Set the mood (music, aromatherapy, candles etc)
4. Cleanse the face
5. Choose your favorite mask (in this case, its the Mamonde Flower Facial Masks)
6. Moisturize (for wash-off masks ONLY!)

Set the mood with desserts, fruits, flowers...

My guilty indulgence ^^

That's how you're supposed to rock your in-home spa with sweet treats, your choice of beverage and...

candles form Mamonde! They were sooo good! Gotta see where I can get them ^^
The above are some flowers and tea from The Tea Republic, that we can mix freely and brew on our own.

I mixed White Tea (fruity scent!) and rose buds.
I learnt that White Tea and Green Tea can't be brew longer than 2 minutes or it'll turn bitter!!!

Ta-daa....rejuvenating internally is important too!


Mask-ing 3-ways with Mamonde Flower Facial Mask:

Here is how you can use the mask on a daily basis:

Stressed skin (Mon/Tues)
Mamonde Pore Clean Clay Mask
Fatigue skin (Wed)
Mamonde Calming Hydro Sleeping Mask
Prep for important dates/events (Thurs/Fri)
Mamonde Petal Purifying Bubble Mask
Revitalized skin (Sat/Sun)
Mamonde Enriched Nutri Sleeping Mask

Or, try facial mask layering:

Luminous & Radiance Skin
Mamonde Petal Purifying Bubble Mask + Mamonde Calming Hydro Sleeping Mask
Deeply Hydrated & Nourishing Skin
Mamonde Pore Clean Clay Mask + Mamonde Enriched Nutri Sleeping Mask
Or apply them concurrently to achieve the following:

Purifying (for healthy looking skin) - Petal Purifying Bubble Mask + Calming Hydro Sleeping Mask
Nourishing (for dewy, resilient skin) - Pore Clean Clay Mask + Enriched Nutri Sleeping Mask
Beauty (for perfect makeup look) - Pore Clean Clay Mask + Petal Purifying Bubble Mask


WHY in-home spa treatment with Mamonde Flower Facial Treatment:
Affordable

Quality ingredients & efficient (Real Flowers extract)
Overall rejuvenation

MY Experience x Thoughts:

Cleanse > Toner > Petal Purifying Bubble Mask > Booster/Serum > Eye Cream > Moisturizer > Sleeping Mask



Sorry for the bad angle. Anyways, this how it looks like when it first bubbles.

Also another bad angle photo but its right after rinsing away my lather and before I apply my other skincare and make up.
A unique second bubble mask experience.
The first one was here from B-liv Oxygenating Mask.

[Packaging] As usual, Mamonde's packaging are aesthetically pretty and reflects the star flower used. It is wonderful that each tub has their own spatula.
[Texture] It feels like a souffle texture with rose petals in it.
[Scent]  It has a light sweet, rose scent.
[Application] You gotta apply this mask on your cleansed and dry face using your dry hands. Mamonde's Petal Purifying Bubble Mask is really different from that of B-liv as it bubbles much faster (1 minute wait is enough! I didn't even finish applying and it has already started bubbling XD). Add on some water like an emulsifying step and it gets more interesting! When lathering, the foam becomes white and thicker in texture. It is slightly harder to wash off so washing off takes a tad longer but its all good ^^
[Removal Step & Effectiveness] The only downside is that it takes a slightly longer time in removing the thick white foam but I can see and feel that my face is noticeably brightened, smooth, with no presence of tight feeling.
I am surprised!
[Recommend] Yes, please get it and experience yourself! I love how unique the lathering and wash off experience is.

Tips:
Thickness of mask application should cover color of the skin.
Once applied, ensure to close both inner and outer cap after each use!
Even after bubbling, it is still safe to use and its effectiveness isn't reduced!
Keep in dry place (avoid placing in your humid toilet!).
You can store it in the fridge but once you store it there you gotta keep it there until you have finished it.

Rate:
5/5
Coz I simply love rose and its noticeable brightening and moisturizing property upon first use! 

Re-purchase:
YES


Pore Clean Clay Mask
100ml  /  RM85


Heartleaf Houttuynia aka Chameleon Plant is first discovered in Hiroshima, Japan, in 1945. It has healing and anti-bacterial properties, especially suited for enlarged pores and oily-prone skin.

Main Ingredients:
Natural Clay, Heartleaf Houttuynia, and Walnut Shells

Function:
Absorb excess sebum & exfoliate dead skin cells on skin surface.
Gentle, mild and soft cream texture keeps skin moisturized while maintaining oil balance; thus skin feels soft, smooth, and supple after rinsing.

For:
Oily skin (Enlarged pores)
Sensitive skin
Skin with dead skin cells

MY Experience x Thoughts:

Cleanse > Toner > Pore Clean Clay Mask > Booster/Serum > Eye Cream > Moisturizer > Sleeping Mask

1 & 2 is my BEFORE.
3 & 4 is to show you the texture of the clay with fine walnut  shells.
5 is during the application and some selfie session.
6 is after rinsing my face, it just feels so good.

I seldom do clay masks coz usually they dry out during my application period and that makes my skin feel tight and slightly drying.

[Packaging] As usual, Mamonde's packaging are aesthetically pretty and reflects the star flower used. It is wonderful that each tub has their own spatula.
[Texture] It comes in a creamy green clay with really fine walnut shells.
[Scent] It has a nice mild combination of perfume-y + minty + refreshing scent.
[Application] Application was easy. Just give a wait between 10-15 minutes. Throughout the waiting period, it does dry up slightly but my face does not feel tight. It was a really chilly wait ^^
[Removal Step & Effectiveness] Removal was easy with massages and gentle exfoliation. I was surprised that the fine walnut shells feels so fine and does not scratch when I rubbed it. After rinsing, my face feels so smooth!!!
[Recommend] Definitely for those who would love gentle exfoliation.

Tips:
Thickness of mask application should cover color of the skin.
Once applied, ensure to close both inner and outer cap after each use!
Even after bubbling, it is still safe to use and its effectiveness isn't reduced!
Keep in dry place (avoid placing in your humid toilet!).


You can store it in the fridge but once you store it there you gotta keep it there until you have finished it.

Rate:
5/5
I cannot find a fault in it!

Re-purchase:
Yes


Calming Hydro Sleeping Mask
100ml  /  RM85


Calendula aka 'Pot Marigold' has been used in cooking for centuries but also containing multiple benefits to the skin. It is constantly used in manufacturing soaps, creams, and cosmetic products. Mamonde discovered that it has soothing & hydrate effect, leaving skin feeling dewy and hydrated.

Main Ingredients:
Calendula petals, Centella, Aloe Vera Extracts, & Cucumber Extracts

Function:
To calm skin and lock in moisture for a hydrated look.

For:
Sensitive skin
Dry skin

MY Experience x Thoughts:

Cleanse > Toner > Mask > Booster/Serum > Eye Cream > Moisturizer > Sleeping Mask

I love sleeping masks especially on drier days and when I don't wanna wash my face the next day XD

[Packaging] As usual, Mamonde's packaging are aesthetically pretty and reflects the star flower used. It is wonderful that each tub has their own spatula.
[Texture] It comes in this water-gel texture and calendula petals.
[Scent] It has a light mint and floral scent.
[Application] The water-gel texture makes application a breeze. Product was also absorbed fast with no tacky feeling.
[Effectiveness] A little goes a long way. If you wanna go light just take a little amount. But I like to layer 2-3 times for certain nights. It dries down to a dewy finish. I love how my skin feels refreshed and cooling upon application.Waking up to moisturized skin the next morning ^^
[Recommend] To those who likes sleeping mask that absorbs fast into the skin and don't mind about the price.

Rate:
4.5/5
Loves the mild scent and fast absorption

Re-purchase:
Probably but would love to discover other sleeping mask which are in the more affordable price range XD


Enriched Nutri Sleeping Mask
100ml  /  RM85


Evening Primrose is especially unique when compared to other flowering plants as it only blooms in the late evenings (now I know!). Evening Primrose has a lifespan of 2 years and adapts well in harsh environment. Evening Primrose is rich in Gamma Lenolenic Acid (a type of fatty acid that nourishes the skin).

Main Ingredients:
Flower Oil Complex (a combination of 3 types of flower oils ie. Evening Primrose Oil, Camellia Oil & Sunflower Oil)

Function:
Moisturizing properties leaving skin dewy.

For:
Bloated skin
Dehydrated skin

MY Experience x Thoughts:

Cleanse > Toner > Mask > Booster/Serum > Eye Cream > Moisturizer > Sleeping Mask

This sleeping mask is much richer in texture. It gives a dewy finish as well but requires a longer time for the product to be fully absorbed into the skin. Definitely saves my flaky skin!!

[Packaging] As usual, Mamonde's packaging are aesthetically pretty and reflects the star flower used. It is wonderful that each tub has their own spatula.
[Texture] It comes in a white gel texture with nutrient capsules (in white). The nutrient capsules help to fortify the protective layer of skin thus lowering the chances of external pollutants from harming the skin.
[Scent] It has a stronger fruity perfume-y scent.
[Application] I took a moderate amount and apply all over my face.
[Effectiveness] I can see and feel the capsules dissolve along the way. I feel that a lesser amount would be sufficient too and that it should have been absorbed into the skin way faster. It does that quite some time for products to be fully absorbed and once it is, there is very minimal tackiness. Face does feel plump and hydrated. Upon awakening the next morning, my flaky nose tip is no longer flaky!
[Recommend] To those with super dry, flaky skin! Its a life savior (for me at least)!

Rate:
4.5/5

Re-purchase:
Yes, especially on my flaky days.
