HELP my Sensitive Scalp !!!

04082014


Back on that day, I went to The Color Shop (at Palm Mall, Seremban) initially planning to have a scalp treatment. The last time I had one, I was given 'tansan' treatment from number76 @ North court, Midvalley, with a friend of mine.

Upon arriving, I told the person what I wanted to do with my hair. She had my scalp inspected.

"Redness"
"Oily"
"Flaky too!"
"Sensitive"
"Less seafood."



I was in terror. Shock would be a better word. Hmm. I was never told or even knew myself that I had a sensitive scalp.

Why me? I know I may be allergic to some little stuff but never did I knew that I have sensitive skin scalp since both my parents have good genes. I mean, they don't have any kind of allergy or sensitive scalp or whatsoever. Hmph.

Then blah blah blah. She  recommends me to do a treatment using the Kerastase liquid and an added powder packet for soothing my irritated scalp. She don't mind me dying my hair and cut but she did stressed to do the treatment. Since I am not working now, there is no reason for me to spend money like water. So, I have decided to skip the treatment for now and go ahead with cutting and dying my hair for the coming HK trip with my family. ^^

Firstly, I had my hair cut and have a fringe made.
Next, a "base for scalp before dying process starts" was given. I like it, it was cooling for the scalp.
Since I have a three-layered-coloured hair, she needs to dye my hair in three parts. So long but worth the wait! ^^ Thank you!

Time to wash off after all the sitting.
^^ And I was given a less than 10 minutes mask or treatment thing for my dry hair ends. Thank you again! You are so nice and professional!
Last but not least after drying my hair, I was given this "Vacation Haircare for color-treated hair" for FREE!! Plus a sample packet of shampoo for my sensitive scalp.

My FREE stuff for my  beloved & well-tamed hair <3

Thoughts???
for item:

(1) Scalp Shampoo
Smell- Aritificial "after-hairdo-at-saloon" kind of smell (Don't really know what or how I should describe it and that's the closest I can get to tell you guys)
Color- Blue 
Effectivity- Lather not that much but gives a cooling effect upon application and really does soothe the scalp.

(2) Vitamino Color Shampoo
Smell- Aritificial "after-hairdo-at-saloon" kind of smell (Don't really know what or how I should describe it and that's the closest I can get to tell you guys)
Color- Pink
Effectivity- It lathers quite easily. It does help my hair shine and retains its color.

(3) Vitamino Color Masque
Smell- Aritificial "after-hairdo-at-saloon" kind of smell (Don't really know what or how I should describe it and that's the closest I can get to tell you guys)
Color- Pink
Effectivity- A little goes a long way. Just take a 20-cents size and it's sufficient to moisture my dry ends.

Repurchase or not?
Hmm, I will definitely buy the scalp shampoo again since it had made me much relaxed after the shampoo hours. As for the color shampoo, I don't think I need it as the hair stylist said that I only need to use this color shampoo continuously for 7 days after I have my hair untouched upon dying it for the first 2 days. So yeahh, I trust her professionalism and don't think I will need it for the time being. But, I will buy it the next time I dye my hair again as it really did a goood job in maintaining my hair color. The sample bottle of shampoo and masque definitely lasted longer than 7 days.

Pardon my bare face and tired eyes. Love the tresses just styled by the hair stylist ^^ Thank you!

My hair on the sixth day (09082014) captured in the car with natural sunlight (without much exposure of sunlight) :

Too lazy to make up or whatsoever. Just posing for fun since passengers like me have nothing to do at the moment, EXCEPT for playing games with the phone or selfie moments with the phone/camera.
My hair on the ninth day (12082014) captured in the car with some exposure of sunlight  :

Close up this time. Pardon my uneven skin tone. Let's focus on my hair color for now ^^ Thank you.

An update of my hair color will be shown in my upcoming post for my HK trip.

Stay tune and thank you to my hairstylist! ^^
