The Routine Soft Rebonding Treatment

I’ve been going to Shunji Matsuo (and my stylist, Caely Tham) since 2012. I’ve been there countless of times, tried all kinds of treatments and hair colours, and still loving it.

4 Years Of Visits To Shunji Matsuo @ 313Somerset all documented here!

I made a recent overdue trip to Shunji Matsuo @ 313 Somerset for soft rebonding (cosme cream treatment) again. This isn’t the first time I’ve done this treatment with Caely and it has given me superb results time after time.

Experience Does It

If I didn’t know better, I would have done rebonding and perming and maybe even colouring, and bleaching my hair at my own wimp and fancy, without knowing what all these chemical treatments is doing to my hair.

I love myself with curls but it’s a delicate balance that Caely does for me all the time. I have naturally wavy hair (see picture below, yikes!) so while I love having curls at my hair ends, the top needs to be straight! I’ll probably end up looking like a crazy woman if it wasn’t.

I’ve also been wanting to have my hair bleached and looking like the KPOP star, CL from the popular girl band 2NE1 again. I really loveeee that colour she did for me before.

So anyway, much of 2015 saw me going through several colour treatments and many hair treatments to let my hair rest from the previous bleach that I did.

The top of my hair usually grows and becomes wavy after 6 months, so I usually need a rebonding update done every 6 months. It’s a routine already!

I’m pretty excited la. After this rebonding, I’ll grow my hair out more, keep the colour updated and early next year, I think we can totally go for crazy colours again! ☺

Without Caely’s experience and advice on what I do to my hair, I think my hair will be fried by now. So that’s why they say, make sure you choose the right hair stylist!

From Wavy Hair To Smoothness & Beyond

Here’s a photo from the recent visit to Caely.

Ignore the horrid washed out hair colour! Caely’s been asking me to get it dyed but not in this same treatment session. Check out the smoothness!!!

It took about 3-4 hours to do this plus the Shu Uemura Master Treatment (prices start from $120), a made-to-measure hair treatment that addresses 3 key hair woes:

– Damaged hair
– Dull hair
– Dry hair

Depending on what your hair condition is, they will mix the various Shu Uemura serums in to the customised hair treatment that this is. :)

Walked out feeling like a million dollars la. ☺
