How to Keep Colored Hair From Fading

Video from last year!

I know I’m not a hair expert, but these are tips I’ve gathered from magazines, sites, friends that were helpful to me and I would just like to share with you guys. These are also all products I’ve used and loved so that’s why I would recommend it to you~

So here is the complete list of the items I’ve show in my youtube video and where you can purchase it!

♥Shampoo L’Oreal EverPure Moisture Shampoo Moisture (remember, I’ve stated it made my scalp dryer, so if you’re wary of this, you can skip out on this brand and check the other brands I’ve listed at the end)
♥Conditioner Fekkai Technician Color Care Conditioner
♥Hair Mask Fekkai Technician Color Care 3-Minute Mask
♥Hair Mask Lux Hair Mask that you can find at your local Japanese/Asian market
♥Anti Color Fade Top Coat Fekkai Advanced Salon Technician Color Care Anti-Fade Top Coat 
♥Color Protect Spray Paul Mitchell Color Protect Locking Spray
♥Dry Shampoo Batiste Dry Shampoo
♥Blow dryer (the one I have is from Vidal Sassoon, that’s what it says on this blow dryer too, but I’m not sure why the product name says Revlon) Ion Select Professional Hair Dryer

Also, I forgot to mention some tips in my video! So I’ll include it here!

♥ Since high heat causes hair to fade quicker, when you curl or straighten or do any of those styling to your hair (even hot blow dryer), use a heat protect spray. The one I use and love for curling my hair is Got2b Guardian Angel Heat Protect ‘N Curl Spray. It not only protects my hair, but it helps hold my curls and smells nice too > 3<“! It was on sale at Duane Reade when I bought it too, so you can also check your local drug stores if they have it on sale. 🙂 The one I use for straight hair and used to use when I blow dry (I now use the Paul Mitchell) is the Pantene Pro-V Damage defender spray. It also smells really good, like all their products~ You can also use the curlers/straighteners at a lower setting so that it won’t be as damaging.

♥ The sun’s UV ray causes hair fade too, so during the summer when the sun’s UV rays are stronger, wear a hat, or any other hat accessories that can help cover your hair. I also use a parasol XD Also, don’t forget to use your UV protect spray!

♥ Rinse your hair out thoroughly as shampoo/conditioners/masks left in you hair can cause it to dull out.

♥ Blow dry your hair with the dryer aiming from top to bottom, and comb in the same direction to minimize frizz. Like I said in the video, cool air will help lock in moisture and prevent less fading.

♥ Try not to use any volume or anti dandruff shampoos as both of them strip hair color quicker. If you have to use it, be sure to use the anti-fade mask right after to help mantain your hair color. 🙂

Other brands I’ve heard good reviews for shampoos/conditioners are;
♥ Pureology Shampoo (look for the one that’s sulfate free. This one is also more costly >”<)
♥ Moroccanoil Shampoo & Conditioner 
♥ Kirkland Signature Shampoo (it is much cheaper to purchase directly from costco!! I’ll be trying this one next, and let you guys know what I think of it. Hopefully it’s more moisturizing than the L’Oreal)
♥ Nigelle HY Milbon Salon Treatment System (I get this when I go to my salon; they put the first treatment twice in your hair, and then give you four tubes to use at home once every week.)

Hope that this was useful and works for you guys~ Wishing everyone healthy, shiny hair♥

More 4Minute Volume Up Teasers

I fell asleep while napping and then my mom woke me up and asked me if I was going to continue sleeping -___-” I realized I didn’t wash my face before napping, so I went to wash my face (I can’t ever sleep without my night skincare routine!) and now I’m wide awake. I decided to look at 4Minute info, and found their new teaser video!

It costed $132,538 USD to construct the set, which appears to be some kind of dark/medieval time gothic castle, which I’m madly in love with. I love gothic cathedrals and castles, I used it once as an inspiration for my designs 8D

Each new teaser I see is making me more excited and anticipating their new album! I especially love Hyuna’s outfit, which I was ordering a skirt similar to her’s, now I’m definitely ordering it hahahaha I think cube entertainment loves using Hyuna’s footsteps, since the beginning reminded me of Trouble Maker. I guess I’m ohkay with their vampire theme now, since they’re making it more classy and sexy looking than a certain movie I must not mention… xP

At first I only found Hyuna’s photos but I searched more to get each individual member’s shot. Here they are! They look so awesome!! Continue reading for the images (Don’t want to make my page load too slow XD) Continue reading

My First Youtube Review Video~!

Hihi~~ just a quick blog post (I’ll be typing up my weekend of food//againn~~// right after this! XD

But for now, here is what I was working on over the weekend~ My first youtube review/how-to video!! It’s on how to keep your colored hair from fading :3

Here’s the blog post that goes with it~

It was really nerve wrecking, but it’s a good experience for me~ And I actually get to see how I look and sound like to other people I guess XDD!!! Sorry if I look funny D: haha~

FOTD 2011/09/30

It’s similar to my FOTD from the previous post, except I’m using a Canmake lipstick and a Clinique lip gloss~ The reason why I had to layer is because Canmake lipstick can settle into creases of the lips >”< It’s a lovely color, but not great for chapped lips!!

OOTD for the video~

After filming my video, I went eating and shopping with my lovelyyyyyyy friend Sarah ♥ We had Hong Kong noodles (where mine totaled to be $11.25… wth T___T”) ~ I love how you can customize your own noodles. I got E-fu noodles (I did not know they fry it first! >”< It was really tasty, but if I knew I wouldn’t have gotten it since I’m trying not to eat fried food >”<!) with tofu (so good!), fish cakes (not the greatest, so skip out on this!), fish balls (same as every where else), beef (had a lot of taste :D) anddddd my favoriteeeeeeee half cooked fried eggs ♥ Plus they give you two!! I love half cooked eggs, sooooo it made the $11.25 worth it hahaha~ plus I got some lil strings of vegetables in my noodles somehow haha~ free veggies ;D

My Hong Kong Station noodles!

Then we went to get yummyyy Vivi Bubble tea~~ I love bubble tea hehehe > 3<“! Plus the milk bubble tea was buy one get one free, so $2.50 for two, what a steal~~~~~ $1.25 each!? Definitely go get some if you’re in Chinatown!!

Sarah & Me with our $1.25 each bubble tea~

Screaming with my Vivi Bubble tea~ Isn't the drawing so cute~?!

Afterwards, we went to Soho since she wanted to buy a designer bag and I was browsing for some designer wallet (since my Liz Lisa one was breaking and so I resorted to using my Burberry wallet I got as a gift awhile ago from my sister, but it doesn’t suit me anymore >”<). Haha we spent too much time in LV >__<” But they were so nice~ and they had this reallyyyyy gorgeous heels that I want so much but I don’t have $960+tax to fork out haha~ oh well, maybe in the future when I have a really good job and save up for it XD

Oh and my first care package from my good friend Michelle!! Thank you so much!! ♥ I’m definitely going to try the MBD Earl Gray Tea & Macroon Face Mask facial mask this week (as my weekly face mask hehe~) and let you guys know what I think of it~ :3

my lovely care package :3
