    Shunji Matsuo Hair Treatment Giveaway!

    Haven’t been keeping everyone updated about my hair but many have still been asking where I did my hair, what treatment I did, etc. If you would like to know about my hair transformation (from long frizzy fried/bleached/dip-dyed hair, please refer to my previous post where I did the Cosme Cream Treatment at ICON Shunji Matsuo by Lily Xu at Far East Plaza). From then till now, of course, I definitely have been making sure my hair gets its much needed attention and keeping it well-nourished even when I was away in Europe for 3 weeks.

    Just to share with you girls that I have been using Shiseido The Hair Care Luminogenic Shampoo and Treatment for Coloured Hair. These products are soooo good that I use them sparingly because I don’t want to run out of them too quickly! Currently, I use my normal drugstore shampoo and I use the Shiseido range of products about once or twice (maximum) a week. Anyway I was advised by my hair stylist, Simon, from ICON Shunji Matsuo by Lily Xu at Far East Plaza that the products are very nourishing so I don’t really have to use them on a daily basis.

    Shiseido The hair care

    I must confess that I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE THE FRAGRANCE OF THE SHAMPOO AND TREATMENT! Okay they both smell the same because they are from the same series. But let me tell you, this fragrance really tops my list!! It’s a glamourous fragrance featuring the scents of roses! I always feel extremely happy (like top of the world kind) whenever I use this shampoo. I’ll even text my best friend that I’ve just showered and my hair smells damn good because of the shampoo and I’ll be damn happy for the rest of the day. Thank you Shiseido and Shunji Matsuo for the opportunity to try these products. *sobs sobs* Other than the fragrance, this line of products does not disappoint at all!! AT ALL! (I’m not paid to write about this, I’m just sharing you my new love!) I always use the shampoo, followed by the treatment. And my hair feels super smooth and retains its shine for the next couple of days! Which is why you don’t have to use it on a daily basis. Not that my hair isn’t smooth enough and shiny already after doing the Cosme Cream Treatment previously. These products do a superb job in maintaining my hair!

    Shiseido Professional’s The Hair Care line of hair products is specially designed for Asian women to bring out our beauty. Basically there are 5 different series of products in The Hair Care range suited for various types of hair, namely,

    Adenovital – for thinning, greying hair,
    Aqua Intense – for dry, damaged hair,
    Fuente Forte – for Problematic scalp,
    Luminogenic – for coloured hair (I use this!!)
    Sleekliner – for unruly, frizzy hair.

    I’d say these are the five main groups that we can categorise our hair into. I used to belong to “Dry and damaged hair” but have now successfully moved away from that!! All I have to do now is to maintained my coloured hair, which is made possible by the Luminogenic series.

    You know I was at a bloggers’ event a month ago and there were a couple of fellow bloggers who tapped me from the back and said, “I like your hair.” :’) I can only thank Shunji Matsuo for that! I have never received such superior hair treatment for my tresses.

    Speaking of which, my hair stylist, Simon, decided that my hair should go a shade lighter. So perhaps I shall get my new hair colour done during my next few visits. I learnt that Shiseido’s PRIMIENCE hair colouring line is specially designed to match Asian skin. Ugh you know how not all colours complement our yellow tones?

    primience shade

    Thanks to Shiseido Professional, all these 76 colours are specially designed to suit the Asian skin, allowing us to have rich coloured hair and look good at the same time!

    shiseido primience

    PRIMIENCE offers colours that help to produce pure and clear colours that were previously difficult to achieve with black hair. They now offer clear and intense colours but are not overly vivid. In that sense, PRIMIENCE colours blend easily with our Asian skin tone to accentuate the beauty of Asian skin. I’ll share more on this when I get my new hair colour!

    Anyway, before I left for Europe, I headed to the Shunji Matsuo Hair Studio located at Ngee Ann City for a pampering session of The Hair Care Treatment.

    As you can see, the condition of my hair was pretty good!! Shiny and smooth! Β Thank God to the person who invented Cosme Cream Treatment!shunji matsuo-2

    I was served by a very friendly and outgoing worker called Alice, she was very humorous and kept me entertained throughout my time in the salon. She was in charge of the hair care treatment and brought me to first wash and prepare my hair for the treatment. Later, I was told to lay down on the chair (you know the chair which you lay down on when washing your hair at a salon?? THEIRS IS AUTOMATIC WHUTTTT!!!) and Alice applied the hair treatment for me. When she first applied the cream, I was like… “IS IT THE SHISEIDO ONE!!” because it smelled exactly like the Shiseido products that I used at home! As it turns out, I was right hehe. There was steam too to open the pores for your hair to absorb the nutrients from the treatment.

    Anyway, the Shunji Matsuo hair treatment lasted about 40 minutes so I was just there chit chatting with Alice and playing my phone.

    Okay uglam picture please ignore.

    Those are Masa’s magic hands by the way. I didn’t snap a picture with him as he wasn’t feeling well and I didn’t want to disturb him but I really appreciate his professionalism in handling my hair although he was running a fever that day.

    Shunji Matsuo-6

    Nice hor? Needless to say, the hair treatment was awesome! My hair was even better than before. It extremely soft and bouncy after the treatment! And not to mention, shining in all its glory haha!

    Hi Keline,

    I’ve been reading your blog for some time now, & I think you write really well. Your reviews (be it sponsored or not) are honest and helpful. Keep up the good work!:)

    Anyway, I would love to win this giveaway as my tresses are in need of some pampering! Hopefully the Haircare Treatment can help my irritated scalp. I’ve been dropping hair lately to my utter horror. So let’s hope I’m lucky enough to get picked!

    Keeping my fingers (and toes) crossed,

    3) I would like to win the hair care treatment session because I have long hair, but it’s messy dry and lots of split ends, I went for a few treatments before but dd not improved the condition of my hair. Maybe because those treatments are not done by professionals. Professional treatments are always slightly unaffordable for students with not much income. Thus, I really really hope I can win!!! (:
    Thank you Keline! ^^

    3) I hope to win the Hair Care Treatment because I’ve got straight hairs (thankful to Rebonding), but because my hair is curly by nature, now its in a frizzy state. I would love to color my hair but am too fearful of the effects it will have upon my hair. Furthermore, I hope to win a session of the Treatment to get my hair fixed in time for my birthday that’s 19 days away from today! <3 Hope to have that silky hair like U did after your treatment ^ ^

    ThankU & may I be the lucky winner.

    Hi Keline,

    Thanks for this giveaway! I’ve always struggled with dry, frizzy and coarse hair, exacerbated by the humid weather in Singapore. I have tried all sorts of treatments and chemicals on my hair but none have helped with my hair, I end up tying a high bun everyday! It’ll be great if I could go out of the house feeling confident with silky, manageable hair πŸ™‚

    Hello Keline πŸ™‚

    Thank you for the opportunity to win this free hair treatment / colouring! Your hair looks really healthy and good. I hope my entry would get selected to try it out πŸ™‚

    1) Vivian Tay


    3) The reason is because I hope to have smooth and healthy looking hair like yours πŸ™‚ I had dyed my hair and did some treatment for a numerous times at my neighbourhood salon. However, the colours usually comes out inconsistent and my hair are exceptionally dry after the dye (even with the hair treatments). This August, I am starting a new chapter of my life in university soon. I hope to enter the school with a fresh new and healthy look! πŸ™‚

    Thank you! I hope to receive good news from you πŸ™‚ *fingers crossed & pray* hahaha

    3) I had rebond and colour my hair a few times before. I had spent quite a sum of money on my hair to get it back to the healthy smooth hair, be it shampoo, conditioner or treatment. None of them seems to be suitable for my hair. πŸ™ I really hope that I could win this and try out the treatment. …and hopefully it’s really time for me to say goodbye to my dry and frizzy hair! πŸ˜€

    (P/s: Thanks for holding such giveaways. & your hair is really pretty! (: )
