Agent J is back at 99 Percent Hair Studio for her virgin Brazilian Blowout experience and Purple hair colouring (despite Agent G's incessant nagging to let her hair rest).
After putting my hair through a bleach+gorgeous 5-colour dye and another two dyes after to get it back to black for a show, I swore to let my hair rest. No more colouring for the next year.
Who was I kidding.
Sorry hair, colours are too pretty to resist :P
Naturally, I jumped at the opportunity to give my tired-looking hair a lift when Danson from 99 Percent (Bedok Point) invited me to try the latest trendy colouring technique, I had to google the term. Pardon my ignorance; I've heard of ombre and dip-dye, but balayage? Fortunately, I found an article that was enough to satisfy my curiosity before visiting Danson again.
Danson's tip: Balayage complements softer looking hair, and isn't suitable for dead straight/blunt hairstyles (think seriously rebonded hair).
See the difference?

Experience at 99 Percent Hair Salon (Bedok Point): 10/10
Danson and his team never fail to make me feel completely at home. It's always good to have people you feel comfortable around, and it's a bonus when they're all skilled hair professionals! :)
2-Colour Dye (bleach included) + Brazilian Blowout: 10/10
The colours used were ammonia-free, with the exception of the bleach. Always good to have ammonia-free hair products! After my last successful colouring session with Danson, I had plenty of confidence in his selection of colours and colouring expertise. I've always wondered about red/purple for my hair but never tried out of fear. Danson was convinced a red-purple-wine mix would suit me. I'm glad I went along with his recommendation!
As for the Brazilian Blowout Treatment after, I only have three words to say about it.
Thank. You. Danson.
So, no washing of hair for 2 days after Brazilian Blowout. That's okay, I basked in the smoothness of my hair.
Time will tell
