I’m the type of person whose hair colour switches with every life change. I can recall siting in Toni & Guy’s colour technician’s chair about half a dozen times in the past couple of years. It’s taken its toll on my hair’s moisture, making it rough and a little crunchy especially in the first month of a colour change. I do take the necessary steps to battle that, like conditioning, treatments, leave-ins, oils, and over time, they do work.. but I had no idea that there were “miracle” products in the market to solve that exact problem until Harold (my colourist at T&G) suggested that I find the local supplier Olaplex.

It took me a little under 5 minutes to get their supplier’s Instagram account thanks to my innovative stalking skills.. from there I got their office number and ordered myself a box of Olaplex’ Traveling Stylist Kit.It cost a bit over 6,000Php which I originally thought was more on the pricey side for what I assumed was a one-time usage sorta deal, but as I read on the box it was “insurance” for my hair, so I guessed this was a a good place to invest.

After getting my hair done, Harold gave me the three bottles back. I was really surprised to see that we didn’t even use an eighth of the bottles’ contents. I seriously haven’t felt my hair this soft since back when it was virgin hair.These are the bottles post-usage. Hardly any less then when I bought them. I feel like I got a license to change colours every couple of weeks! I 100% advise that every hair colour fan gets themselves a pack of this product. The results are in-freaking-sane. If you’re uncomfortable dropping 6k on hair health, I suggest you split with a friend or two. You’ll be able to change colours minimum 4 times.

Two days after colouring, I went to Bataan for my cousin’s wedding.. going to the beach after a colour change is a big, fat no-no. I swam in salt water, I swam in chlorine-filled water.. still no hair damage or breakage. It’s an impressive freak show of hair health.

I still do rub in some leave-in conditioner for safety and although it doesn’t feel necessary, I still suggest you do.. but life after this discovery is incomparable.

to save you some time, here are the contacts:

    Hi! Okay, so my question isn’t really related to this post but I would just like to ask if you have any tips for mix and matching clothes because recently I’ve gotten myself into that situation where I just stare at my closet thinking “what the hell am I going to wear now?” lol I mean if you have like a piece of clothing that you would wear all the time but would match it with something else to make it look like a “new” look? Thanks and hope to hear from you! 🙂

      I’m pretty sure every girl on the face of the earth has gone through that. usually, basics are easier to mix and match.. pairing something white with a different statement colour can easily change it’s vibe, you can use button downs as light jackets or tie the sleeves around your waist to change the shape of your silhouette .. i like using skirts as tube tops, but it might be weird if you’re not the girly type.. i have an easier time mixing and matching cause almost everything i own is white, black, grey, and beige.. they’re all tones that go nicely together or alone.. also, if you’re in a hurry, pick one piece that you wanna wear that day then google the description.. for example: sheer pastel button down.. and the search engine will flood your screen with different ways it’s been styled in the past, you can use them as instant inspiration and soon, you won’t be needing google, you’ll just have ideas =)

    I’m actually not the girly type so most of the stuff I own are actually pants and shirts. I want to actually try and reinvent my style but since i’m kinda big… I find it hard to do so. Sometimes idk if I can even pull off the style. But thank you so so much for the tip! Will definitely try this out 🙂

    Hi Yonyon, got your reply. So I read this. Just a follow up question, is this something that you can do on your own, coz to be honest I dont have any personal hair stylist. I just go to salon have my haircut and do treatment. Do hot oil myself since though. I don’t think I read something above on how to apply it on your hair. haha. SAREH! I am so excited to grab one for my hair.
