Number 76, a no strange name for their hair saloon services and work. I have always heard good things about them and finally, I get to try their services. I have been following one of the hair stylist in Instagram by the name Amy who is based in Bangsar 2 and I had the opportunity to witness her work myself.
One of Number 76 is located in Bangsar 2 has a very clean external design which you could hardly tell if this is a hair saloon. Anyone could have mistaken this place as a cafe because it looked so cozy and comfy.
I was greeted by Ee Ling who share Number 76 bag to have my handbag kept safe and protected as well as a cup of warm green tea, my favorite tea of all.
After a friendly consultation from Amy, it has been decided for me to do hair coloring touch up on the roots and hair treatment. On the right is Amy and left is Ee Ling who was assisting Amy. The color touch up is natural brown. As much as I wanted to explore other colors, I believe natural brown is easier to maintain for greying hair just like I do.
Ee Ling did the rinsing and deep cleansing for my scalp to remove any impurities or build up in order for my hair to grow healthier. When I was seated, a dry eye sheet mask was placed over my eyes to avoid any water drops. As to the deep cleansing, Ee Ling have used a different shower heads that gives a pulse massage to my scalp. It is very relaxing and I would say this would be the most gentle hair rinsing I have ever experienced.
Here is the result from the deep scalp cleansing where it has quite a bit of dirt that floats the top of the water. Ewww!
This would be the treatment of Ultrasonic Premium which is signature treatment available in Number 76. I have very dry hair ends that always leave tangles and lead to hair fall. This treatment would be able to help me to fight this matter.
The device used for the treatment looks like a straightener where uses vibration to allow the treatment product to penetrate deep within each hair strand for mega nourishment, entangle knots, ultra softness, radiant shine, silky smooth, stronger texture and healthier hair.
First treatment lotion to apply and separate evenly with a comb. Ee Ling then use the device to press my hair in between. Though it looks like a straighter but it doesn’t straighten my hair at all and it will not do. After completing with the device, second treatment lotion was applied and left for about 10 minutes before rinsing.
Here I am again with the eye patch with Ee Ling helping me to rinse off all the treatment lotion. You could see my peeping under the eye patch. 😛
Ee Ling applied the lotion for the third time and I could see she applied the lotion much thoroughly by running her fingers between hair strands and rubbed with fingers. She then uses the device again and ensure all parts of the hair receives the treatment.
The last rinse includes a warm towel, this promotes blood circulation for my scalp.
Ee Ling also provides me a month supply of home hair mask treatment where I could maintain my hair on my own weekly. I love this mask because after a week from Number 76 signature treatment, my hair begin to feel slightly rough. After this mask, my hair is all soft and bouncy again.
Once Ee Ling was done with the rinsing, she sprayed tonic in few sections of my hair to prevent hair fall. The after effect was nice because it felt cooling.
Before she started to dry my hair Elujuda Emulsion was used on my hair ends to prevent tangles, smoothen and manageable hair.
The emulsion was applied over my hair ends even though my hair is still damp wet.
Amy and Ee Ling came together to dry my hair for a speedier service.
Amy styled my hair by curling my hair ends and I was worried if I might turn out to look like a poodle but it turned out cute! I’m not trying to say that I look cute but the hair style did.
Here is a before and after that anyone could tell my current hair is much healthier, shiny and even colored. On my before, I did a bad home hair coloring job that Amy and Ee Ling thought and asked of which salon that I went to. Embarrassed but I braced myself to them that it was my job and I have selected much lighter color than the shades that I have used before which exposed my grey hair and lighter hair roots. Even though I am open for colors, I don’t seem to have much color of selection for grey hairs huh?
This is how it looks from the front, not so poodle after all right? It soft curls and I believe the treatment made it look that way. For the longest time, I hadn’t felt my hair so smooth, bouncy and shiny. I was prancing around with my new hair and normally I would leave my hair to air dry but I have been hardworking to blow dry my hair everyday in order to have that long bob styled. Intentionally, I took my boyfriend’s hand to run through my hair and his response was ‘that is very soft, wow!’.
