My Hair Story #6 - Good hair days forever!

I had a difficult time deciding on the title of this blog post, was deciding between "The perfect hairsolution for lazy people!" and my current title..

The main topic of this post is - COSME CREAM.

After my visit to Shunji Matsuo 313 last week, every time I run my fingers through my hair or look at my reflection , I will be blissfully thinking that my hair is perfect. Okay, I know I sound quite narcissistic (自恋) here, but that is how much I love my hair now!!

Most of you will be thinking: "Nothing much what, your hair look shorter and blacker only lor"

There's a HUGE difference okay!! In terms of how my hair looks, the texture and daily up-keeping... FYI, I don't even use conditioner or hair mask or hair serum nowadays, I don't comb my hair since forever, and my hair still very nice!!! & I swear I am not exaggerating at all.


As I have mentioned in the previous hair post, Jerry and I actually discussed about what to do to my hair for this appointment already! But.... I changed my mind midway while he was working on my hair... So only part of that plan is carried out... *Oppps* I know I am very fickle-minded, will do the other hairstyle another time~

So this is how my hair looks like before entering the saloon. Took this on the MRT on my way to there!


If you don't know, I have been having long hair for about 4 years. However, I can't stand my bleached ends being dry and tangly (partially due to my laziness) any more so I have been slowly cutting away my ends bit by bit since 2/3 months ago. Yes, this visit was the final "CHOP OFF"!

I have a love-hate relationship with my bleached hair: I can dye loads of super nice and fun colors with bleached hair, but it takes a lot of effort to maintain them too. Was thinking that its time for a change since I have had my share of having fun ombre colors for the past months :)


So yeah, Jerry got the honour of chopping my hair to shoulder length.. And all the bleached ends are finally gone! Currently, I'm back to jet black hair, which is my natural hair color.

At this point of time, I liked how my hair looked, so I told Jerry, "I think like that can already." (Don't mind my broken conversational english lol) This was an impromptu decision to scrape the initial plan for my hair.


His reaction: "I kind of expected it..." and proceeded on to suggest that I do Cosme Cream. He quite cool right haha, so chill one!

Cosme Cream is a chemical process, similar to rebonding, but is less permanent (last about 4-5 months) and less harmful. It can control the texture of our hair, smooth out curls and reduce frizz. The end result will be neater, smoother and straighter hair!

The stuffs required for Cosme Cream...


After listening to Jerry's explanation, I realised that Cosme Cream is like a dream come true for me! I've always wanted neater and slightly straighter hair, since my hair is naturally wavy and I don't like to comb my hair.. I always knew that rebonding is an option, but I don't want my hair to end up looking super flat and making my face look super big.. Cosme Cream gives similar results but looks more natural than rebonding, meaning our hair will not end up looking stick straight and flat..

This spray is to protect my hair from the chemicals...


The first chemical is applied on my hair...


Chemical was applied about 1-2 inches away from the scalp and ends so that my hair will not look flat! :D My fringe was quite straight and okayish, so it was left to be.... the same.


I was looking like an alien and left to this device that radiates heat for a while..


It will turn and turn and turn... My BF helped me make this gif image! :D


After the first chemical was washed off, my hair was blown dry and then straightened with the flattening iron!


After straightening, a second chemical was applied to my hair to "set" it, and left on for some time again...


& I'm done in about 4 hours! Well, if you have lesser and shorter hair, I guess it will be even faster for you..

See, its not flat at all, looking totally natural :) Jerry also tonged the ends of my hair inwards because he knows that I like my hair that way, and I was off to an event right after getting my hair done!


Super love my hair! It looks so simple and natural, yet its soooo nice!


Here's how the back looks like... Super neat right?


Comparing the before and after... I feel so much younger now I don't know why haha!


My hair looked so naturally perfect not only on that day itself, but everyday thereafter. It has been more than a week now, and after so many washes without even bothering to comb my hair, my hair is still the same - natural, neat, smooth and looks so perfect! Also, there is not a single tangle at all, can you believe it?

Yes, I wake up to my hair looking something like this everyday. Okay, maybe a little messier than this and with the ends curling in random directions sometimes, but these small problems are easily fixed by running my fingers through my hair with a little bit of water and everything will be in place already!

Oh, I am so happy that I did Cosme Cream on my hair! :) :) :)


I really can afford to be lazy now..... Strongly recommend those lazy people or people with messy or curly or frizzy hair to do Cosme Cream! Its like a magical solution to all your hair woes~
