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 SuperModels2u.com 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.

Price: MYR69.00

Beautify Skin To Hair at Sharp Plasmacluster Malaysia x Kosé Sekkisei Pre-CNY Beauty Clinic

Just last Saturday, I managed to squeeze into a spot to Sharp Plasmacluster Malaysia x Kosé Sekkisei workshop. This workshop is to prepare everyone who attend to get ready for the coming Chinese New Year celebration to look radiant and luminous not only on the skin but also to achieve that healthy flowing hair.

Sharp Plasmacluster Malaysia x Kose Sekkisei

The workshop was held at Fresca Mexican Bar & Kitchen, located in The Gardens City Mall and there’s two session to choose which one is held in the morning and another in the evening. Upon registration, I was given a red packet filled with a number for lucky draw and a sample sachet of Kosé Seikisho Exfoliating Massage Gel. I find my way to the corner of the restaurant where the workshop was held. On the table for every seat placed a mirror, hair clip, bip, pencil, paper and Kosé Sekkisei booklet. Also sitting on the table is the Kosé Sekkisei basic range.

Sharp Plasmacluster Malaysia x Kose Sekkisei - Joe Beauty Trainer

This is Jo, one of the beauty trainer from Kosé. She was the speaker to explain how we could take care of our skin further not only just on the outside but deep within. It includes the pattern of our daily lifestyle, diet and skin regime. It takes a lot of effort to be pretty too!

Sharp Plasmacluster Malaysia x Kose Sekkisei - Slide Presentation

  1. For a healthy and beautiful skin, it should be bright, translucent, sheer, moisturized, supple and firm with great elasticity. Under a skin scope or analyzer, a healthy and beautiful skin texture should be in plumped triangular shape.
  2. There are many factors contributing to our skin deterioration such as unbalanced diet, polluted environment, lack of sleep, age factor, stress and poor skin care regimen. As a result, our skin becomes dehydrated, rough, dull, yellow with dark spots.
  3. The journey to beautiful skin with Kosé is simplly by using this pyramid.  Begin with daily physical activities, one should consume sufficient water, fruits and vegetables, exercise, protect from harmful UV rays and catch enough sleep. Keep up with the daily basic skin care where we should always cleanse, moisturize and protect. Also if you have special skin problem to treat, use the daily special care. Lastly on the weekend, treat yourself with mask to boost the healthiness of your skin.
  4. Featuring their star product and best seller, Kosé Sekkisei Lotion (even my BFF swears by it) that is suitable for all skin types. It helps to brighten, provide translucency, balances moisture and oil secretion, calms skin from sun exposure, tighten pores and even out skin tone. The lotion can be use as mask which helps to boost 10 times more moisture to your skin.
  5. There are 9 skin benefits by using Kosé Sekkisei Lotion as mask which is translucency, better penetration, moisturizing, tighten pores, relaxing, firmness, elasticity , evenness and whitening.

Sharp Plasmacluster Malaysia x Kose Sekkisei 2

It’s not just about listening to Jo on the benefits of Kosé Sekkisei, every participant get to experience it by using the skin care itself. Yup, all of us were cleansing and treating our skin in the public using their basic skin care that we should at least practice to maintain skin youthfulness. Let me share with you each step with the product that we have used with the guide and help of Kosé beauty trainers who stood nearby us.

Sharp Plasmacluster Malaysia x Kose Sekkisei - Cleansing Cream

Kosé Sekkisei Cleansing Cream

‘Gentle-to-skin amino acid-based mild acid cleanser. Quickly removes only impurity while leaving moisture on the skin. Formulated with whitening and moisturizing oriental herbal extracts. (Coix seed, Angelica, Melothria). It relaxes the skin that has been hardened, rough-surface and dulled by the UV-rays and dehydration. Recommended for night use only.’

First step prior to our skin regime is cleansing. If you have any makeup on, it is highly recommended to remove them first. This cleansing cream may seem thick but it glides and spreads easily on the skin. As for me, it does feel awkward to use cream-based cleanser and to worry if it could be too rich for my combination skin.  Once applied the cream on the face, gently massage the cream in circular motion. The massage will help the cream to penetrate moisture into the skin and soften it

Sharp Plasmacluster Malaysia x Kose Sekkisei - Sekkisei Lotion

Kosé Sekkisei Lotion

‘Its light and refreshing after-feel allows for lavish usage. Moisturizes dry skin as well as locks in moisture giving dull skin a more translucent feature. Application of this lotion with lotion Mask (sold separately) enhances moisture diffusion rate, moisturizing deep within and brightening the complexion. Recommended to use day and night.’

Their lotion is THE star product or their best seller. Though it is known as lotion, it acts like a toner and provides higher  moisture level. There is no need to use toner before using this lotion as it works all in one. The lotion can be also used as daily mask which is to soak the tablet mask with the lotion. Leave the mask on the face for 20 minutes and continue with the rest of the skin care regime. An instantaneous result achieved of softer, smoother and plumper skin, at least I think it does!

Sharp Plasmacluster Malaysia x Kose Sekkisei - Emulsion Excellent

Kosé Sekkisei Emulsion

‘Contains a moisture balance polymer that keeps the moisture balance at its optimum with accordance to climatic seasons and skin type. Continous hydration allows for a comfortable feel. Inhibits melanin production while preventing UV-related skin pigmentations such as blotches and freckles as weel as dry skin. Recommended to use day and night.’

The emulsion acts almost like a moisturizer, nevertheless the texture is much lighter. It helps to lock-in and retain the moisture that we earlier pump into our skin to keep it supple and firm at all times. Kosé do recommend using facial pads instead of fingers for hygienic purposes, just pump onto the facial pad and gently wipe it all over the skin.

Sharp Plasmacluster Malaysia x Kose Sekkisei - BB Cream 02

Kosé Sekkisei White BB Cream

‘Cares for the skin while covering blemishes and dullness. A whitening BB cream with oriental plant extracts.

  • Hides blemishes to give even & natural coverage
  • Brightens skin to look lit from within
  • Lightweight texture spreads easily & smoothly
  • Cares for skin with oriental plant extracts & UV-A and UV-B protection
  • Time-saving, long-lasting, non-cakey, hydrating
  • Mineral-oil free’

This BB cream is yet to be available over Kosé counters but they will be on April 2014. It comes in two shades of 01 and 02. The shade that I have here is 02 which gives a natural shade whilst 01 is for skin that is very fair. It can be use right after the emulsion as it comes with SPF40, great for day use to protect your skin from UVA and UVB. I’m not  fond of BB creams but I do think that this BB cream texture is light and the coverage is buildable from sheer to medium.

Sharp Plasmacluster Malaysia x Kose Sekkisei - Loose Powder

Kosé Sekkisei Supreme Loose Powder

‘Loose powder that boosts translucency with moisture-rich effect with pure white powder akin to powder snow. 

  • The Inner Luminance Powder creates shine that comes from within the skin and brings moisture-rich translucency
  • The Hexagonal Powder spreads smoothly like silk and creates an even, supple finish. In addition, it adheres well to skin without leaving the skin powdery.
  • Powder with Pore Soft Focus effect allows unevenness to be less visible and creates brightly-toned skin
  • High sebum absorption maintains a beautiful finish
  • Blocks UV-rays during the day and ends the day with a matt and well-blended finish by balancing and combining various UV-ray-preventing powders
  • Blocks UV-rays and prevents freckles and dark spots caused by the sun with SPF12/PA++
  • Refreshing Oriental herb fragrance’

The loose powder comes into action to set the BB cream in place. The texture is light and fine which felt as though I have not applied anything on my face. I do notice that the loose powder has slight shimmer in it which may not be favorable for those who have combination to oily skin types. Although the powder is white, its translucent and self-adjust to the skin tone.

Sharp Plasmacluster Malaysia x Kose Sekkisei - Chinese New Year Makeup

In the midst of us applying BB Cream, Kosé shared with us what makeup we could go for this Chinese New Year as the celebration is coming soon. For this CNY, its great to go with pink with gold sparkles and a light touch of red for the eye makeup. As for the face makeup, it is recommended to use highlight to achieve that further skin glow. Any soft pink lip color will compliment the entire look.

Sharp Plasmacluster Malaysia x Kose Sekkisei - Faizal Chew Manager for PCI

Mr Faizal Chew, Manager of Sharp PCI (Plasmacluster Technology) Segment Malaysia introduced 3 types of hairdryer that can never make our hair crispy dry. With the Plasmacluster Technology, the hair dryer will help to retain moisture and reduce statics on our hair. Ever heard of hair dryers that helps to dry your hair without drying your hair?

Sharp Plasmacluster Malaysia x Kose Sekkisei - Hair Dryer

  • IB-HD73 – Comes in black and pink where the dimension measures at 21.3cm x 8.9cm x 22.3cm. The power consumption for this is 2000w which provide the strongest performance of all three. Diffuser comes as one of the accessory to accommodate for those with curly hair. This is priced at MYR499.00.
  • IFPB1S – Currently this comes in pink only measuring at 21.8cm x 8.9cm x 22.2cm. The power consumption for this is 1600w and provided with concentrator nozzle for precise direct air flow. This is great for home use and with the foldable function makes it easier to keep it. Priced at MYR359.00.
  • IB-HD52 – Running on the power consumption of 1600W, this comes in pink and grey. It is much smaller as to compare the two of the above, measuring at 19.8cm x 8.9cm x 15.8cm and this size is travel savvy. In addition to that, it is foldable that helps to save space. This also comes with a concentrator nozzle, priced at MYR399.00.

A question that Mr Faizal Chew that has enlighten us is ‘When do we use hot and cold air of the hair dryer?’. It never come across to me that when it should be used because I usually dry my hair with the maximum heat and cold to cool my hair when it gets too hot. Overheating our hair will lead to damage and dry hair, that’s what most people would say not to use hair dryer on a daily basis (and I do). Hot air is great to dry, cold air is great to set and shape the hair. For these hairdryers, it comes in additional setting which is ‘set’ where the right temperature of 45°C.

Sharp Plasmacluster Malaysia x Kose Sekkisei - Hair Dryer 2

Here is partial of their brochure for more information of what this hairdryer does and the comparison of a typical hairdryer and Sharp Plasmacluster Conditioning Hair Dryer. Basically with the plasmacluster technology, it protects and cares better for the hair.

Sharp Plasmacluster Malaysia x Kose Sekkisei - Hair Dryer Test

Some of the participants of the workshop gets to try the hair dryer and find that their hair is much smoother, less frizzy and shinier than before. Only on the left side of the participants were blown with Sharp Plasmacluster Conditioning Hair Dryer and you can be the judge to compare from the photo above.

Sharp Plasmacluster Malaysia x Kose Sekkisei - Lucky Draw

Remember that I mentioned earlier that everyone was given a red packet during registration? Time to use the number at the end of the workshop where Jo was drew numbers of 2 lucky participants to bring home Kosé Sekkisei skin care and another wins Sharp Plasmacluster Conditioning Hair Dryer. Luck didn’t side on me which is fine and congratulations to the winners!

Surprise Me With Mivva Christmas 2013 Beauty Box!

A great kick start of the year 2014 especially when this surprise was sent to me and arrived on the first day of my work. I was expecting myself in blue at work after enjoying the stretch of holidays. Many have said that this is the January 2014 box but it’s actually the Mivva Christmas 2013 box specially for bloggers and what should I say, it’s quite a handful box!

Mivva Christmas 2013

If you have follow me in Instagram, I have posted the preview of this box when I have received it. If you haven’t, you could always look out in Instagram for me, @traclynyeoh. Why would I say this a handful box? This box is literally double of the usual Mivva box size! When I saw this box sitting on my table, I was so excited and thinking who could have been so thoughtful to send such a big package to me. It is all Kao’s product and what’s more exciting is that they all full size which makes this box so much more worthwhile!

Mivva January 2014 - Liese Bubble Hair Color in Milk Tea Brown

Liese Bubble Hair Color in Milk Tea Brown

This home hair coloring kit has been around for quite a while now and this is not your typical hair coloring kit because it dispense as foam for easier application. It has honey as moisturizng ingredient and hydrolyzed silk as hair protecting ingredient. Milk Tea Brown shade provides a golden brown hair shade and this does not provide gray coverage. Personally, I have not tried this although I’m an avid user of home hair coloring kit plus I’m always looking out for ashy shades.

Mivva January 2014 - Biore Makeup Remover Wipes

Biore Makeup Remover Wipes

I have heard that this is the new improved formula wipes and I remember I have promoted the first generation of this wipes in my previous videos of Classic Shanghai Night. I always wanted to have the one that comes in a box but often swayed to opt for something else. This new improved formula has hyaluronic acid  and moisturizing essence. The physical box looks more rounder than before and with lace pattern on the sides. It’s colorant-free, alcohol-free and allergy tested and it comes with 44 pieces of wipes.

Mivva January 2014 - Liese Smooth Hair Cocktail

Liese Smooth Hair Cocktail

This is a hair detangler that is meant for all hairstyles. It has moisture milk that helps to nourish and smoothen hair, and repairing water to instantly hydrates hair inside out. I have yet to use this also but I will definitely use it because my hair ends is dry and gets tangled easily. I begin to love the scent because it smells refreshing like a pineapple tropical fruit juice.

Mivva January 2014 - Biore Mild Cleansing Liquid

Biore Mild Cleansing Liquid

I believe this is fairly new on the shelves, this cleansing liquid helps to gently dissolve and removes makeup including waterproof mascara and foundation. This water-based makeup remover doesn’t require cotton pad at all, just rinsing will do. This is similar to their cleansing oil and this would be another choice for users who is not keen with oil-based makeup removers. It does seems promising, I will see how useful this could be.

Verdict?

I would say this is a total big surprise that they were able to provide four full size products and most of them can be used daily, at least for me I will. I would also say that this could give a new hair color makeover right before Chinese New Year and to ensure that hair and skin should be taken care well. Good job Mivva!

Review: L’oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Damage Eraser Leave-On Oil Serum, Effective 5 Proven Results

Half of my hair is dry and damaged from all the chemical work and hot hair tools. Three weeks ago, I have decided to look for a hair serum and I picked up L’oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Damage Eraser Leave-On Oil Serum at Guardian for MYR13.95. It was on sale at that time but I think the retail price should be either below or slightly above MYR20. I’m a little skeptical on the texture because of the word ‘oil’ mentioned, just worried if it could possibly be too oily for my hair.

L'Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Damage Eraser  Leave-On Oil Serum 2

‘It instantly repairs your hair by addressing the 5 common hair problems like breakage, dryness, dullness, coarseness and split-ends. Say ‘Au Revoir’ bad hair days!’ – L’oreal Paris Malaysia Facebook

I often color my hair to cover the greys especially when my hair roots are showing and when hair dyes doesn’t stay long. I shampoo my hair daily due to having oily scalp and humid weather. Once shampooed and conditioned, I usually allow my hair to air-dry and poof! It gets frizzy and tangled too. I was hoping this serum comes to the rescue.

Here’s the ad that was shared by L’oreal Paris Malaysia Facebook. I love to see how bouncy Maya Karin’s hair looked!

L'Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Damage Eraser  Leave-On Oil Serum Flip Top Lid

It comes with a flip top lid which you can see that the serum gets all over it after a while of using it but the best thing is that it doesn’t leak to the body of the bottle.

L'Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Damage Eraser  Leave-On Oil Serum Description and Ingredients

This serum is great for 5 different types of hair damages, breakage, dryness, dullness, coarseness and split-ends. Which hits the point of my hair concerns lately. From the ingredients, it does contained alcohol.

L'Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Damage Eraser  Leave-On Oil Serum Texture

The texture is slightly lighter than oil and it does felt greasy on hand. A little goes a long way for how much you need to use it on your hair. For as long as I’m using this serum, I have never squeeze a tinge bit on the bottle. What I did is to allow the serum to flow from the bottle, circling on my palm about 2 times and that’s the amount I’m using after shower. I also apply this serum before using hot tool on my hair and I use more of the serum just to protect my hair. I love the scent, sweet and refreshing, like fresh sweet scented flowers.

Verdict?

This serum was introduced in June, I find that this is inexpensive and I’m totally in love with it! Though I have no photos to show you a before and after (I wasn’t expecting myself to review this) but I can promise you that my hair is much more manageable, softer, shinier and it is an ease to run through my hair with my fingers.  I have never seen my hair in such state for a while ago.  The best effect that I’m totally impressed with, is using this serum with hot hair tools, it holds on to the style so well, makes my hair bouncier, shiny, smooth, soft and the style looks very natural. It is very economical for I have used it for 3 weeks daily and hot hair tools on weekends, I only used up to a quarter of the entire bottle. If you’re looking for some hair serum without spending too much, I totally recommend this!

Price: MYR 13.95 (on sale)

Weight: 80ml
