Be prepared for a picture-heavy post of my new hair-do! I can’t wait to share just how stunning and the ceramic perm, highlights and purple dye turned out, hence will be publishing numerous pictures of my tresses in different lighting, with New Zealand’s breathtaking scenery as backdrops.
3 weeks after my ceramic perm at Georgina’s, I returned to touch up my highlights, as well as to try something new-dying my hair purple! This was the first time I deviated from my usual browns and mahogany, and I wanted the look to be subtle. Hence, Georgina recommend to dye only a small section of hair.
After applying bleach to the selected section of designated hair, highlights, followed by low lights, were meticulously applied to my locks. Gentle heat was used to facilitate more efficient penetration of colours into the hair shaft.
What bleach hair looks like
Purple dye was smeared onto the bleach portion then wrapped in aluminium foil, while the rest of the tresses enjoyed a hydrating and strengthening treatment using Japanese and German products.
To maximise penetration and benefits, the salon uses an O3 machine. Ozone hair therapy causes peptones to be formed on each hair shaft, forming a protective layer over each strand (like our Ozone layer). I prefer the O3 machine over the traditional hair steamer treatment as the latter makes me feel hot and uncomfortable.
Behold the final look! I love how abundant the highlights are, throughout the entire head, with pretty purple streaks intertwining the curls. The following pictures are taking in indoor lighting.
Purple hue under sunlight. It’s lovely, dont ya think? I totally regretted only dying such a small section!
Some of you may be aware of a certain Hong Kong Tai Tai who brings a personal hair stylist along while she vacations to fix her hair. Well, let me tell you girls, that’s not necessary with Georgina’s ceramic perm! You’ll have gorgeous curls every day, with minimal effort. Simply twirls the curls while air-drying or blow-drying. A picture speaks a thousand words and I have 10 to prove it.
Tip: If you’d like a little volume at the crown of your head, pin up your locks in the manner for 1-2 hours.
You’ll get a slight poof at the crown that gives the illusion of fuller hair.
Vibrant hues are a fun way to step outside of the box when updating your look. Do set aside 4 hours for bleaching and colour dying. The salon’s ambiance is classy and comfortable, plus there’re heaps of magazines to keep you occupied so I’m sure you’ll enjoy your time there. Even better, get a mani and pedi done at the same time!
