New Year, New Hair | From Blonde to Blue Violet

Hi sweethearts!
(I must come up with a name I can call my dear readers. Chilipinees? Hahaha! Leave your suggestion on the comment box, pretty please.)

If you've been following me on Instagram (@ayzeecasimiro), you'd know how much I can obsess about my hair. 

I've been dying it blonde for almost 2 years and I really loved it. But sadly, my hair didn't. Due to the regular exposure to bleach, styling tools and wrong products, my long hair became extremely dry and frizzy. I also noticed how blonde hair (without the proper hair products) can become brassy over time. I knew I had to do something about it, so I went to my neighbor and had it darkened. I chose "blue violet".

From Goldilocks to Ultra Violet. ;p

Depending on the lighting, it comes off as red, burgundy or violet. It was a drastic change for me, and I thought I couldn't pull it off. I wanted a professional to do my haircut, so I went to Folded n Hung Famous Salon at Glorietta 5. My stylist was Brian. I asked him to keep the length as long as possible, and that I wanted bangs. He said he'll give me layers and a side-swept "C" bangs. He'll give me a beautiful haircut that'll make me look younger, he said. (I'm only 27! Hahaha!) But in fairness to the man, he really did a good job with my hair. I rarely get bad hair days since the haircut, and I don'g even have to style it daily. All I do is dry my hair with a fan, and when it's about 80% dry, I twist it up in a bun then I'm off to work. When I reach the office, I let my hair down in all it's sexy and glorious waves. (Hahaha! Indulge me, please.)

By the way, I availed their Total Repair Treatment for colored hair (Php1400 for my hair). They didn't charge me for the haircut since I had a hair treatment. ;) I will definitely go back for my regular trims and treatment. I love the place, the people and the prices! #HappyToBeFamous

Want to know what products I use (and AVOID) to keep my hair healthy and hair color in tact? My next post is going to be about that! It'll be up soon, I promise. :)
