Review : Be colourful with L'Oreal Professionnel Hair Chalk!

3 weeks ago I did my first hairchalk colour in my life using L'Oreal Professionnel Hair Chalk in Centro Hair Salon in The Gardens. 

I always wanted to try out hairchalk but can't find proper one brand in Malaysia except those in the night market which I am not confident to use them and worry hair may go haywire! 

Since now L'Oreal Professionnel has launched their first hair chalk , I'm very happy to give them a try! Well Hairchalk is the new make up for hair!

Getting bored of your hair colour well here is where the fun begins! 

Check out the new It looks for Spring Summer 2014 by L'Oreal Professional Hair Chalk on the British IT Girls! 

  • Chanel ambassador Poppy Delevingne sporting the Pink Splashlight;
  • Model/Socialite Pixie Geldof with Mocha Blonde Pixie;
  • Sexy Spanish IT siren Malena Cota with the Brown Blonde Bronde;
  • IT girl Chen Ran with Side-Swept Red Ombre.

L’Oréal Professionnel Hairchalk colour is inspired by the way we accessorise with make-up and nails, allowing us to change hair shades as often as we do our shoes!

In Malaysia we have 5 bold shades to pick while in overseas, there are total of 8 shade where bronze, brown and black is not available in Malaysia. Brown or black hair is Asian common hair colour and I don't see why anyone wants to hairchalk this colour. That being said, our hair colour is pretty dark and people and it's not easy for bright colour like blonde to show on our dark hair hence usually people go for hair bleaching (which is very damaging!). 

Can you guess which hairchalk colour I had?

Bet a lot of you thought I choose pink right ? 

Well I was torn between 4 colours which I had not tried before i.e pink , blue,  violet and green ( you realised I didn't pick coral because I had coral hair colour last year!). And the best thing about hairchalk it allows us to try funky colours without bleaching it! Yay to NO HAIR DAMAGE and hairchalk colour would only lasts up to 4-5 shampoo washes (depending on your hair condition)! The healthier your hair the shorter the duration it would lasts. 

Being a Libra who cannot decide, I asked Kevin Woo the Founder of Centro Hair Salon for his expert opinion. He told me in L'Oreal Professionnel Hairchalk in Garden Party (Green) would suits me more because my hair colour is blonde and assured me that it would turn out looking very nice. Honestly I am not sure if I could carry green hair colour and I don't want end up looking like The Joker .. Anyway I'm pretty cool with his pick.. after all he is professional and he knows the best! Plus green eyeshadow is my favourite colour!

Unlike conventional hairchalk, L'Oreal Professionnel Hair Chalk in Malaysia comes in a chalk or palette where you need to mix with water, L’Oréal Professionnel Hairchalk comes in a ready to use liquid in a handy resealable bottle and a piece of applicator. The outer application has plastic cover so our hands would not get stain while using hairchalk.

Step 1 - Decide what section of your hair you want to hairchalk. Best to use tied or pin it up. Make sure your hair is clean and dry.
Step 2 - Gently shake the bottle and pour 3-4 drops into the applicator. Wear protective gloves and use a towel to avoid staining hands and clothes.
Step 3 - Pinch the applicator to allow even distribution of the colour 
Step 4 - Slide the applicator down the hair that you want to do hairchalk
Step 5 - After applying comb the hair to achieve an even result. 
Step 6 - Dry hair naturally for 30 seconds to 1 minute OR use a hair dryer for a more  polished result
Step 7 - Repeat the above steps to colour other hair section and remember to shake the hairchalk bottle before you pour out to use.  
Personally I like how the bottle is resealable so that we could keep the remaining for the next use without wasting it.

My advice to the first timer if you are first time doing hairchalk at home use dark colour towel & wear an old shirt while doing this hairchalk colour. Pick a small section of hair to do hairchalk as it is easier to manage. Alternative to the applicator that is provided, you can use a small sponge as well. Just make sure you wear a glove while using them.

And after applying hairchalk on the section of your hair, quickly blow dry before you do the next part because you do not want the hairchalk colour to transfer to other part of your hair or your clothes. Once the hair is dry, it's waterproof, styling & blow drying resistant!

Of course if have a someone to help you to do hairchalk colour is better as you can just sit back and relax :)

Love how the L’Oréal Professionnel Hairchalk Green Party (green) turn out to be exactly what I see from the bottle! The green colour is really vibrant & it match nicely with my blonde hair!

I realised that my hair base is light hence the colour is brighter than my friend's ones. So if the lighter your hair base, the hair chalked hair would be more vibrant.

After the hairchalk hair colour is dry , I realised that the hair texture would be a little bit coarse (or rough). This is because the hair is being wrapped with a layer of hairchalk colour. The coloured hair would be a bit drying for temporary so it's advisable to use hair conditioner or hair mask after washing the hair. And hair oil is definitely recommended to moisture & soften the hair. I would suggest to use my L'Oreal Professionnel Mythic Oil , it's not oily yet very moisturizing for the hair!

After 2 weeks 

L'Oreal Professionnel Hairchalk colour can last up to 4-5 shampoo wash on average and depending on the amount of product applied and the hair type. In my case, my hair is quite damaged I guess (from the frequent hair colour & styling) so the colour stays on nicely for 2 weeks. By third week, the colour already faded to lighter tone and actually looks pretty nice :D

I also realised that if I wanted to make the hairchalk hair colour to come off faster, I just apply shampoo on my dry hair and start rubbing on it before adding in water to rinse off.

I was worried at first whether the colour would looks nicely against my skintone but now I knew I could look good in green hair colour! 

You know how I always love playing with colours, be it eyeshadow, blusher, lipstick or even nails colour (I have 70 bottles of nail polish..haha) . Now with Loreal Hairchalk, I am foreseeing myself to try out different hairchalk colour because it is easy & fun to use! I definitely want to try our pink , purple & blue hairchalk colour next!

And you know why I cut my hair short last year after I have damage my hair from bleaching... Glad to find out that even without bleaching and damaging the hair, hairchalk colour is really pigmented and vibrant! And this hairchalk colour would be fabulous for parties and special occasions or events!

I guess hair colour is now an accessory already!

L'Oreal Professionnel HairChalk Colour is is selling at RM50/50ml bottle and it's already available for sale in all L'Oreal Professionnel salon such as Centro Hair Salon beginning of 1 March 2014.

Review :L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil Milk for fine hair

L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil Milk is ideal for fine hair, it's protein-rich milk spray strengthens and reinforces hair. It is made from Royalatin (derived from Royal Jelly, rich in antioxidant and B complex vitamins) and Passiflora Oil (rich in Vit C, Calcium and Phosphorous).

Comes with a spray dispenser

Texture : White Milky

Scent : Pleasant flowery scent

Tips to use & how it works:
Post Shampoo Detangler : Added moisture for smooth detangling

Pre-Blow Dry Condition : Delivers shine, softness and anti-frizz protection

Finishing Spritz : Added softness improves the appearance of split end

Review of L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil Milk: I started trying out this and the first thing I noticed is the lovely scent once I sprayed on my hair... it's so nice and that makes me keep spraying ! It feels extremely light on my hair like as if nothing has been applied. As much as I like the scent, I don't think it works well to de-tangle my hair after I towel dried my hair or de-frizz it after I blow dry. However the spray dispenser is quite useful and easy to use especially right after I blow dry my permed hair, for keeping my permed hair shape in place while providing a little bit moisture kick on it as a final touch up. And if you have fine & quite healthy hair, you might want to try this to maintain your hair condition! I still prefer the Rich Oil formula (click here to read review) which nourish my dry & damaged hair.

L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil - Milk is selling at RM75 for 125ml at L'oreal authorised hair salons.

p/s: I have gave this to my friend Amelia to try and will get her reviews on this too and add on if necessary

Review: L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil in Rich Oil formula - Finally get to say Bye Bye to my bad hair days!

How often you wake up and realised that you have a bad hair day ?

I have that almost everyday, all thanks to my constant effort of beautifying my hair by perming, colouring, highlighting and even bleaching! I learnt my lesson hard and now I am more careful and dilligent in taking care of my hair! As much as I like how my hair is permed and coloured I am now more concered about what hair products I used and are suitable for my hair conditions.

Back in February I was given L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil (for all hair types) to try and I was skeptical to use it at first because hair oil like Liese and other few brands never seems to work on me, and it usually gives you this greasy & heavy feeling after you apply it and not really helping the hair that much. But once I tried this Mythic Oil, I was or I am in love with it and there is no turning back because despite it being an oil it felt so light on my hair and it makes my hair feel so smooth and manage to keep my frizzy hair at bay! And now I know why 3 Mythic Oil products sold every minute worldwide!

So I was quite excited to try out another 3 different formulas of Mythic Oil when I was given for review and they are are L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil in Milk, Rich Oil and Colour Glow Oil and each of these targets different hair types and concerns.

My current hair condition : Dry, frizzy, lacks of shine, unruly and tangling hair

And looking at my hair concern I decided to try L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil- Rich Oil first which comes in transparent plastic bottle. Anyway I read that L'oreal Professional introduced new Mythic blow-dry services, inspired by ancient beauty traditions, passed through time and filled with Oriental indulgence. If you have used any other hair oil before, you will realised that we can only used it after you have blow dry your hair and not before that! But Mythic Oil can be used before or after we blow dry our hair and it is for different results!

L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil- Rich Oil has the richest nourishment formula among all, it has consists of taming and anti-frizz effect.

The two key ingredients that are being used here are:-
Rice Bran Oil : intensely moisturises and replenishes unruly hair for restored sleekness

Argan Oil: Rich in Vitamin E and essetial fatty acids, Argan Oil deeply nourishes rebellious hair.

Looking for the lists of ingredients, they are not only FREE from paraben, silicone and mineral oil ! And it is made in Spain.

Comes in pump dispenser, only one pump is needed!

Texture : Rich & clear colour oil

Scent : Very pleasant scent

Usage Tips to see different results:-

Pre-Blow Hair Dry Constructor : Essential preparation for Mythic Oil Blow-dry and Oriental Odyssey services. Apply one pump after you towel hair dry your hair and before you blow dry your hair.

Finishing Touch & Sparker : Increases shine, suppleness and softness with long-lasting anti-frizz protection. Apply another one pump after your blow dry your hair or style them, apply at the tip of your hairs with your fingers for final touch.

Review of L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil- Rich Oil : I only pumped out 1 pump and warmed my hands before using it. I combed through my hair with the oil on my hand and not touching the scalp area. After that I felt that my hair absorb the Mythic Oil -Rich Oil like within a minute. I then continued blow dry my hair and when I am finished I applied another pump of it to my hair tip with my fingers just for final touch. Once again it absorb pretty fast and leaving my hair tips not feeling oily. I combed it through and it is smooth and actually help to detangle my hair. I really like how it fees light and does not weight down my hair while keeping my frizzy hair at bay. I have discovered that I did not have any splits ends at all since I started using them even though I just recently korean permed my hair two months ago. And I think my hair looked more shiny and manageable. And compared with the L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil original formula for all hair types, this Rich Oil formula is thicker and richer and gives better moisture to my hair and more suitable for my current hair condition!

I like it when I applied this the night before after I showered, my next day morning hair was soft and so easy to comb through!

I like how I can comb through my hair with my fingers!

No more bad hair day anymore! YAY!

I am endorsing my approval and really recommending this L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil - Rich Oil to all of you who have damaged & unruly hair. It makes my life hair so much easier, seriously! Trust me when I said good, it's really good!

L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil - Rich Oil is selling at RM75 for 125ml at L'oreal authorised hair salons.

p/s The other 2 formulas such as Milk & Colour Glow Oil review will be posted seperately soon because this Rich Oil formula deserved its own review post!
