It’s May, and summer isn’t over yet! That means you can still go out and have that well-deserved vacation! 🙂

I bet you’ve already allotted your vacation leaves for your next beach trip, and now while you are still preparing that bag and hoarding all the sunblock you can get for your skin, why not try and get protection for your hair too!

The intense heat from the sun can cause a lot of damage to your hair, making it brittle, dry and lifeless. Not to mention that trouble can be heightened when you have bleached hair like mine. As Philippines is a tropical country, it is no wonder that the Solar UV index is above average during this time, and can be pretty annoying when you are trying to maintain glamorous locks.

Hair dehydration and breakage of essential protein are the common effects when you stay too long under the sun. The UV rays can be as nasty as that weighing scale when you’re on a fitness diet. Salt in the beach waters and chlorine in swimming pools can also catalyse damage to your hair. So while we strive to protect our skin from the UV, I think it’s also about time to shed some attention to our hair too, being it 3x more vulnerable to sun damage.

Oh yes, I’m being preachy because as someone who has bleached hair, and can’t get keratin treatment as of the moment, it’s so disheartening to know that a lot of girls are not weary in keeping their mane healthy and strong.

Goodie, the NEW Limited Edition Pantene UV Rescue Shampoo and 3 Minute Miracle conditioner is now here as your best partner to keep your Summer Strong with Hair Stronger Than The Sun! They can protect your hair from the sun, chlorine from swimming pool, and salt from beach water—elements that can severely damage your hair especially during the hottest season of the year.

Can I say that their new and sunny packaging design inspired by the song, “Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini” is soooo adorable! I can remember singing this song as a child! 😀

The graphics team sure did have a lot of fun conceptualizing this. It definitely makes it more exciting to use! Finally a shampoo and conditioner that is just as trendy as you!

 

How does Pantene UV Rescue work on your hair?

IMG_2447IMG_2451

To address these summer hair aggressors, Pantene UV Rescue offers a three-phased approach to prepare your hair BEFORE contact with sun and heat stressors, shield damage DURING contact, and then repair, replenish and rehydrate hair AFTER sun exposure and contact with salt or chlorinated water.

Pantene UV Rescue shampoo with its Pro-V formula gives hair protection from root to tip. It provides optimum care that goes deep within the core of your hair, giving it the antioxidants and the hydration it needs for each strand to be strong. It is perfect with the Pantene UV Rescue 3 Minute Miracle conditioner that can repair 3 months’ worth of hair damage and infused with the power of an ampoule that can add further hydration to your hair and instantly boost its smoothness and shine.

Pantene UV Rescue 3 Minute Miracle gives your hair deeper long-lasting moisture that is lightweight and without the greasy feel you hate. It is recommend to use Pantene UV Rescue 3 Minute Miracle before swimming and after. Before swim application creates a layer of protection before the hair gets in contact with salt water or chlorine, keeping hair moisturized and smooth contrary to the sticky, dry and damaged feel we get after a long day of swimming under the sun. Then of course, after swim use provides deep moisture and repair.

My Vivere Salon Glorietta Experience with Hairstylist JC Espiritu

Two months ago I decided to dye my hair rose gold but got out with ginger hair instead. If you happen to read my post about it, you might get a flashback. 🙂

But what seemed to be a mistake, turned out to be a unexpected blessing! Because with this new hair color, people recognize me more!

(April 2017)

I remember one time when I was eating in Trinoma, a friend passed by the glass window and immediately caught sight of my hair. She wondered if it was really me! Haha It was! 😀

In Gateway, I was walking on the grounds surrounding the coliseum, when a friend got out of a nearby restaurant and approached me. Whenever there’s a blog event or a speaking engagement, people call me “Via” already, without asking for my name! It’s crazy! 😀

(April 2017)

So I guess ginger hair helped me in more ways than I expected. I haven’t even thought of it as a part of my branding. 😀

My publicist actually advised me to maintain it, because it has provided me an extension of my brand as a blogger and as a shoe designer.

(April 2017)

And of course, we know that a lot of things don’t lasts forever, especially hair color and length. As my hair grew longer (as if it’s not long enough),  the roots are starting to show, and the once highly pigmented strands is beginning to fade.

IMG_20170708_112126

That is why it was so timely that I got to visit Vivere Salon in Glorietta, and have my much-awaited hair retouch and makeover!

I booked an Uber to Glorietta 2, and surprisingly I found the salon too soon than I thought I would. It’s on the  3rd floor, in front of Electro World.

I love how posh their salon is. It even has this geometric design I am so crazy about! 😀

Since my hair color was actually just an accident, it may be difficult to duplicate. The original hue wasn’t red, or orange, or pink, it seems like a fusion of all 3. The tint changes magnificently in different levels of lighting.

IMG_20170427_202127

My favorite was the one under a yellow misty light in Francis Libiran’s Fashion Show. It had a rich, romantic and regal tinge to it.

So this is my hair that needs all the love it can get!

JC Espiritu, the resident Senior Hair Stylist in Vivere Salon Glorietta worked his magic in creating the color I wanted. He posed some techniques about the duration of the bleaching cream on my crowning glory, and some hairstyling words that sounded alien to me.

IMG_20170708_120938

I specifically told and showed him that I have to achieve THAT certain color because it’s part of my self-branding. People recognize me to have that red-orange hair color.

IMG_20170708_122500

Ms Eveb (Junior Hair Stylist) helped me bleach my hair roots until they turned corn yellow. The rest of my mane has already been bleached previously, so there was no need for additional creams.

IMG_20170708_131231

The concoction was painful as expected, but I didn’t mind. All for beauty!

IMG_20170708_131808

I got my hair washed, and I swear I look like an easter egg here! I was actually in doubt whether I should upload this, but hey, we all got flaws! Haha 🙂

IMG_20170708_132116

IMG_20170708_132122

After an hour or less, my hair was ridden off the cream, and had to be blow dried. Honestly, I didn’t mind going out of the salon with a gradient yellow to orange hair!

IMG_20170708_132421.jpg

I look like a total walking sunset in this! But, the process isn’t finished yet, so I have to stay seated.

This was the time Sir JC showed me the hair dye emulsion. They particularly look like the pigment I wanted, so I was so excited!

He said, “Ms Via, nag-magic ako!”

(Redeeming my egg face with this tilted lying-shower-pose! Haha 😀 )

It was Sir JC’s idea to have my eyebrows dyed as well. They turned shades lighter as in! 

My “kilay is life” game looks more appealing, and suiting for my raspberry hair!

True enough, his potion-skills were excellent!

IMG_20170708_155638-01

IMG_20170708_162248

I didn’t just get the color I wanted, it was even better! 😀

I have never wanted a hair color so much in my life! Not to mention, that finally, there is a salon that exists that can actually make your hair color dreams come true!

My signature hair is BAAAAAAACK!

And it’s better, red-oranger, gingerer, mermaid-ier and Ariel-er! 😀

IMG_20170708_163518-01IMG_20170708_164802-01

IMG_20170708_163014I can’t contain my happiness, this is even better than having legs! That is why I can’t help but splash out hugs and flipping fins to the best hair experts in the land!

Via Galang for Vivere Salon Glorietta

Thank you Sir JC and Ms Eveb for bringing back the life and luster of my hair, and making it more beautiful! 😀

IMG_20170708_164104

It looks very cotton candy on this side of the salon! Took a snappy with Rayrose Samson, a fellow blogger!

My hair makeover is valued as follows:

Haircut: P390 / Hair Color: P5,000 / Hair Treatment: P1,500

I highly recommend Vivere Salon Glorietta for those seeking trusted salons to take care of their hair! 😀

You know where! 😀

How to Look Natural with Wigs

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my prerogative.

If you follow me on social media, or if you’re my friend, you should know by now that I turned ginger, and it’s probably the loudest hair color I’ve ever had! I can tell that it really takes a lot of courage to wear your crowning glory differently, not to mention opting for unconventional colors and styles!

 

I remember wearing matchy-matchy wigs with my sister for our costume-themed Year Starter Party back in 2016. We were impersonating “Kimmy and Dora Godonghae”. They are the so unlikely twins from the hit Filipino movie “Kimmy-Dora”.

Did we do a good job? Imagine how wigs can give you that total transformation!

Now, if you’re that kind of person who is yet to jump on this rather ‘life-changing’ only-for-a-few-months-kind-of hair, but would want to look a tad surprising every once in a while, I highly recommend you to wear wigs! Yeah! Most celebrities wear it every time, so why can’t you?

clip-on-extensions

 

I discovered something so cool because I always wonder why their hair looks astonishingly real when I certainly know they’re not. Turns out these gorgeous women are wearing half wigs and not the full-on ones! Brilliant isn’t it?

Here is how you wear them!

You can actually add more volume to your hair by just wearing these complimentary hair accessories! I mean, I would certainly wear them! I just hope I can find some half wigs that would match my current hair color!

But look! This one totally opted to go extra creative by wearing an astounding different color! And they actually make her look more interesting!

If you’re looking for wigs or half wigs, I just found Black Hairspray online and they offer a wide array of wigs and hair care products! I know, I should start browsing for a ginger colored one ASAP!

What do you think of wigs, would you wear them? Let me know your thoughts! 🙂
