My First Visit to Number 76 @ Bangsar 2

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.

Number 76

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.

Number 76 Welcome Drink

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.

Number 76 Natural Brown Hair Coloring

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.

Number 76 Natural Brown Hair Coloring Wrapping

Once they are done applying the dye on my hair roots, cling wrap was used for effective and stronger absorbency towards the dye. Leave it for 20 minutes and ready to rinse.
Number 76 Deep Cleansing Scalp

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.

Number 76 Deep Cleansing Scalp Residue

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!

Number 76 Ultrasonic Premium

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.

Number 76 Ultrasonic Premium Device

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.

Number 76 Ultrasonic Premium Treatment

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. Number 76 Ultrasonic Premium Rinse 1

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. 😛

Number 76 Ultrasonic Premium Treatment 2

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.

Number 76 Ultrasonic Premium Rinse 2

The last rinse includes a warm towel, this promotes blood circulation for my scalp.

Number 76 Deese's Hair Treatment

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.

Number 76 Spray Hair Tonic

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.

Number 76 Deese's Elujuda Emulsion

Before she started to dry my hair Elujuda Emulsion was used on my hair ends to prevent tangles, smoothen and manageable hair.

Number 76 Deese's Elujuda Emulsion Application

The emulsion was applied over my hair ends even though my hair is still damp wet.

Number 76 Hair Drying

Amy and Ee Ling came together to dry my hair for a speedier service.

Number 76 Amy Hair Styling

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.

Number 76 Ultrasonic Premium Treatment Before & After

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?

Numer 76 Traclyn Yeoh

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!’.

Number 76 Price List

Number 76 offers different hair services such as cut, color, perm, treatment, hair styling and hair extension. They are available at Mid Valley, Bangsar 2, Publika, Bangsar 1 and Starhill Gallery.

Review: Pantene Pro-V Total Damage Care 10, Even The BF Thinks That I Should Keep Using It

It’s tricky when it comes to hair care. I used to have silky smooth hair when I was younger and now it’s the total opposite. It’s rough, dry and gets tangled easily after all the chemical work that was done on my hair. At most, I would do for my hair is coloring it every few months to cover grey. I was introduced to try Pantene Pro-V Total Damage Care 10 and I thought what’s new from them? They have reformulated and brings more protection to the hair.

Pantene Pro-V with Keratin Damage Blocker

‘Enter Pantene’s Keratin Damage Blocker (KDB) Technology, reformulated into the Pantene Pro-V haircare range of shampoos. KDB Technology actively targets, captures and helps to neutralize excessive oxidative minerals in hair. Instead of waiting for free radicals to be produced before attacking them, Damage Blockers actually help prevent their formation by reducing excessive levels of minerals in hair. Pantene is the first global brand designed to prevent protein erosion by minimizing mineral accumulation in hair.

With continued use, mineral-induced oxidative stress declines, hair’s protein are better preserved and hair condition can improve overtime, ultimately giving you beautiful, radiant and shiny hair. Hair health is improved with every wash with Pantene Pro-V shampoos, now with Keratin Damage Blocker Technology and invisible enemies remain invisible!’

Pantene Pro-V with Keratin Damage Blocker Shampoo

Pantene Pro-V Total Damage Care 10 Shampoo

This is how it looks like for the size 170ml and definitely there is bigger size than this. Shampoo would be my first step of my hair routine and I normally would shampoo my hair everyday. Call me crazy for doing so but I could not bear my oily hair from the humidity and hot weather in my country.

Pantene Pro-V with Keratin Damage Blocker Shampoo Texture

It comes with a flip top for this bottle size and the texture seems a little light but it could lather up easily. A little goes a long way and for this size, it could last up to a month usage for my long hair. I would wish that the flip top would be at the bottom instead because when I’m left with ¹⁄3 of the shampoo, I switch the flip top to face down for easier dispensing.

Pantene Pro-V with Keratin Damage Blocker Conditioner

Pantene Pro-V Total Damage Care 10 Conditioner

Just like the shampoo but the flip top is at the bottom which I think is perfect for conditioner because of it’s texture. A bottle of this would also last me a month for my long hair.

Pantene Pro-V with Keratin Damage Blocker Conditioner Texture

Occasionally, I would use the conditioner more for greater boost for my hair since my hair ends gets dry easily. The texture is indeed thick and a little goes a long way.

Pantene Pro-V with Keratin Damage Blocker Conditioner Before & After
Notice that I mentioned I was able to use the range for only a month? Yes, I have tested them for a month and ready to share the results! Previously my hair is lack of shine, limp and dry. After using the range for a month, my hair has greater volume, shine and less dry. It is not perfect but there is improvement.

Pantene Pro-V with Keratin Damage Blocker Conditioner Before & After Hair Ends

Let’s take a closer look to my hair ends. The hair shine definitely quite prominent and looks more healthier. Though I would still get tangles, it is much lesser as to compare than before.

Above all…

I love how my hair felt smoother from the first use! That’s because my hair was quite damaged and dry. I try to avoid doing much chemical work on my hair and the most unavoidable one would be coloring my hair. I would need to maintain it and will need to color it every few months depending on the lasting power. My hair still gets tangled but not as severe as before and there are times, I get really frustrated just to untangle my hair. After this hair care, I would still use hair oil to smoothen my combing.

I believe that Pantene has remain it’s signature scent in all of their hair products which has sweet fruity scent to it. Just from the first wash, the BF noticed the difference and the conversation went on like so.

BF: Did you switch shampoo?
Me: Yes, it’s Pantene that was provided for review. Why?
BF: Ahh…keep using it, it smells good on ya.

Even the BF likes the scent and I’m good with the scent too. I know the conversation may sound like it came off from an advert but trust me, it did happened. This is one encouragement that makes me feel that I should keep using it. Perhaps another type whereby I’m able to retain my hair color longer.

Price: From MYR 9.90 onwards

Availability: all leading retailers nationwide


  • Helps to improve hair condition from the first use
  • Long term result of shinier, smoother and volume hair
  • Less tangles
  • Affordable
  • Sweet attractive fruity scent


  • Does not entirely replenish hair condition

My Rating: 4.9/5

Review: Revlon ColorSilk Hair Color, New Improved With 3D Technology For Longer Lasting Color & Smoother Hair

It has been a couple of months that I have lived with light-colored hair. However much I liked it, I have to admit that it requires quite an effort to maintain. With light-colored hair, they seem to look and felt more damaged, dry and brittle. I decided to dark again, not only to consider my mane health but with darker hair, it contrasts and makes my complexion look brighter. I had the chance to get my hands on an upcoming improved home hair dye kit that will be available in-store by July 2014, Revlon ColorSilk Hair Color.

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors with 3D Technology

Revlon has improved their existing hair coloring kit with 3D Color Technology that promises the ultimate multidimensional natural richer color.

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors Shades There are 13 shades available nationwide and 1 limited shade that will be carried only by Guardian. Of all the shades, which do you think that I have chose?

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors in Dark Brown

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors in Dark Brown 2

The new improved formula comes with simple face lift on the packaging. This hair dye kit is perfect for me as I’m looking for something that is less damaging, long lasting and covers grey. What makes a bonus to this hair dye kit is that it is enriched with UV Defense to help to keep the color vibrant and true.

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors in Dark Brown Shade

Since I’m going darker again, I have selected dark brown. It is the darkest brown shade available. If you ask me, why didn’t I go for black hues? I’m honestly telling you that I’m not ready for it yet. Though I’m determined to go for darker hair, there is still part of me wanting to keep the brown tones.

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors in Dark Brown 3

At the side of the box described what are the possible outcome of using this shade. I was a little worried because the outcome shade on the box seems to appear slightly lighter than I expected. This is a halal certified hair dye for those who is concern.

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors in Dark Brown Ingredients

Though it is ammonia free, it does contain hydrogen peroxide. It is found in the Cream Color Developer, an agent that helps to penetrate the color onto each hair strands. Also in general, this hair dye kit contains Paraben and alcohol.

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors in Dark Brown Coupon

Upon opening the hair dye kit, I was excited to see coupon on the box and after carefully reading it, it is only mean to be redeemed in US only. They do have another new hair dye kit, Revlon Luxurious ColorSilk Buttercream which is available only in US.

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors in Dark Brown In The Box

In the hair dye kit, there is a color cream developer, an ammonia-free colorant, after color conditioner, manual and a pair of disposable gloves. The disposable gloves are attached to the manual and I recommend to always read the manual before using the kit.

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors in Dark Brown How To

To prepare the dye is simply easy, just follow these steps.

  1.  Cut of the pointy tip of the cream color developer. Be careful as you cut it, there may be some cream oozes out.
  2. Pour the ammonia-free colorant into cream color developer bottle and secure the bottle tightly.
  3. Wear the disposable gloves and block the pointy tip of the cream color developer bottle. Shake the bottle gently until it is all evenly mixed.

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors in Dark Brown Non Dripping

What I have used to assist me to color me hair is a hair dye brush which I have bought for the longest time ever. I did this hair coloring job on my own and it isn’t that difficult to use it. Since it is ammonia-free, I love that it smells fruity and no heavy chemical scent. The texture of the cream is not too runny that it sticks very well onto the hair without dripping. However, I did accidentally drip it directly from the bottle onto my feet and the dye stays for few days eventhough I have used soap to clean it off. Could you imagine the staying power of this hair color? For first time users, you may just leave it for 20 minutes and since I’m looking onto grey coverage, it is advised to leave it for 30 minutes. So I did.

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors in Dark Brown Conditioner

 After 30 minutes, I rinsed off my hair until the water is clear. Without shampooing, I have used the After-Color Conditioner and it may looked just like other ordinary conditioner but I freaking love this! It makes my hair felt so smooth and healthy all over. I then question myself that if only Revlon would produce this conditioner as their hair care products, who knows maybe in the future they will. Pre-caution for those who is scent-sensitive because it has quite a strong scent of jasmine that lingers until the next wash.

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors in Dark Brown Before & After

 Here is the comparison of my previous and current hair color. Big difference and I love it how dark it appears without looking black. It is slightly uneven on the on the crown area, I believe that is due to the duration difference of color development.

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors in Dark Brown Before & After Fadeout

Just to share that I do shampoo my hair everyday. Some of you may think it’s unhealthy but going a day without shampooing my hair in this hot and humid weather just doesn’t work for me.  After a week, I have also compared how well the shade lasted since I wash my hair daily.

Above all…

Way before this, I have used the earlier version of the same Revlon ColorSilk and honestly speaking, I didn’t like it because the color fades away pretty fast and I gave up trying over the same kit. Since that I’ve used the improved formula, I’m impressed and have planned to stock in a few more once it is launched in the stores. It left my hair soft, smooth and less damaged. Not to mention the shade lasted longer than before. The grey coverage is not as perfect but it could cover most of it. I would say give it a try if you’re always coloring your hair.

Retail Price: MYR24.90

Availability: July 2014, all leading pharmacies nationwide, supermarket and selected departmental stores.

Review: Ombre Dip Dye Hair Extension, Blends Perfectly Natural

Until today, ombre can never go out of style in terms of nail designs, hair or any that you could think off. I always wanted to have ombre hair but it could be quite costly to get it done at the salon or even DIY worries me if it didn’t turn out good. Another reason is because I work in corporate line and will not look as appropriate. Things has been turned around after I found my love with this Ombre Dip Dye Hair Extension.

Super Models Secrets Ombre Dip Dye Hair Extension - Pink To Purple

This clip-on Ombre Dip Dye Hair Extension can be found at and they come in 2 styles, straight or curly. There are 8 colors to choose from black to pink, brown to pink, dark purple to rose pink, rose pink to purple, dark blue to green, black to light purple, dark green to light green or turquoise to lime. It is made of  synthetic fiber where hot tools cannot be used on it. The approximate length is 65 cm, width is 25cm and weighs at 110grams with 5 clips. I have chosen rose pink to purple.

Super Models Secrets Ombre Dip Dye Hair Extension - How To Wear

If you’re new to clip-on hair extensions, let me show you how to wear it. It’s very easy and convenient to use this hair extension.

Super Models Secrets Ombre Dip Dye Hair Extension - How To Wear 2

  1. Section your hair in half with hair clam or clip. I would suggest to section higher if you want the extension to appear shorter and section lower for longer looking hair.
  2. Unsnap all of the clips of the hair extension and carefully bring the hair extension close to your hair.
  3. Secure the hair extension below the line where you have section your hair. If you’re worried the hair extension may slip off, simply spray a layer of hairspray before clipping on the hair extension.
  4. Ensure that the hair extension is completely straight and firmly clipped onto your hair.
  5. Release your hair that was sectioned earlier.
  6. Blend the hair extension with your hair by gently bringing strips of the hair extension over your hair.

Looks difficult? Not at all! This took me less than 5 minutes to get it done, it is that easy. I highly suggest to ensure Step 4 is taken because if you don’t, the hair extension may look bumpy when your hair covers it or it may cause some pain (hair tension) from uneven weight spread. Trust me, the pain did happened to me.

Super Models Secrets Ombre Dip Dye Hair Extension

Though they are synthetic, I love how it look so natural and blends well with my hair. I even fooled my BF and friends that I have colored my hair for real, they totally bought it. I am already considering to go for another color.

Super Models Secrets Ombre Dip Dye Hair Extension 2

Because my hair is V-shaped, it explains why I sectioned my hair in V too. This is to allow the hair extension to follow my hair cut. Until you go very close to me, you’ll be able to tell that it’s synthetic.

Super Models Secrets Ombre Dip Dye Hair Extension 3

Because I love how natural it looks, it’s a waste if I don’t share more of how the extension looks on me. I’m not very good at posing, please pardon me.

Super Models Secrets Ombre Dip Dye Hair Extension - How To Keep

This is how I keep my hair extension, just tie on both ends of a clothes hanger with a ribbon and clip the hair extension on the ribbon. I keep them safeguard hanging in my wardrobe. I highly recommend to keep them hanging or lay them straight down to avoid unnecessary tangles and mess. Better off if you could also cover them with a plastic sleeves to keep them in place. To maintain it free from tangles, best is to place them on a flat surface (such as table or floor) and comb it till its all smooth again. If required, trim away those that has gone bad.

Above all…

I love how easy and such an instant way to get ombre hair without damaging my hair and pocket friendly! It looks natural and the weight is acceptable but do bare in mind, it could get a little more warm around the neck. Just as I mentioned earlier, I’m considering for another color now. Also a plus point that I don’t have to worry about is the color wash-out. Vibrant colors like this tend to wash out easily on natural hair. The backlash is that it gets tangled and not as smooth while having it on due to our movements but I’m good with it, just try not to touch the hair extension as much. In regards to the shipping, it arrived to me the next day after I was informed that the parcel was sent out.
