Dip Dye at Salon Vim

Friday, April 20, 2012
Hello! I'm finally doing up a post on the dip-dye I did at Salon Vim about 2 weeks ago! :)
I loved the result & especially how they took so much care of my hair to help it stay healthy despite the bleaching (especially at the bottom).

Random picture I found of me with my old hair as a sort of "Before" picture!
I think this is the stillshot captured when I did my Poetree video!

So anyway it was my first time down at Salon Vim, which is conveniently located in town!
313 @ Somerset Orchard Road #04-07/08/09

I was assigned one specific hairstylist to do all my future hair appointments with, so that she can learn about my hair type & likes specifically to cater more to my needs (or my hair's needs rather).
They literally have an appointment card with your hair type, length... etc.

The above is a chart showing the different products that Salon Vim uses from L'Oreal Professional & they have so many... O.O products for all kinds of hair types, hair treatments, hair services done...

It was my fair time getting a hair treatment done too! 
I didn't really know what was going on & left them to it.
Here are the L'Oreal Professional products they used for me:

They're specially selected based on what I was doing that day!
(Touch-up of roots & bleaching of the bottom to get the dip-dye effect)

They used #2 of the top (pink) row, which is a range for coloured hair!
#2 is for locking in the hair colour after dyeing.

I think the bulk of the rest that they used for my treatment is from the 2nd row, orange-coloured!
It's all about restoring the hair & making it healthy again despite the stuff done to it!

They applied the stuff & used this machine below:


Never seen this machine before. It's kind of like a steamer!
They repeated the process a few times: apply, steam, apply, steam

No wonder my hair came out looking so nice at the end of the visit!
They also gave me some take-home L'Oreal Professional products to help improve my hair's condition.

Shampoo from the Vitamino (for coloured hair) range & hair mask from Force Vector (hair fall)!

Vitamino Colour Shampoo

Force Vector Masque 
(not Mask meh?)
(my spell-check didn't underline it)
(I'll go check the spell-check dictionary)
(wtf it's an alternative spelling? Since when?)
(it's the equivalent of "mask" in French anyway)

Ok anyway... Done with my hair!
Asked them to blow-dry it with curls :D


My hair has a few streaks here & there of the same colour as the bottom!
My stylist suggested it & I think the highlights are a great idea! Maybe I'll get more :D

This is my stylist, Stephanie!
You can look for her if you go down to the salon!
(but try to make an appointment first)

Went home & took loads of photos because my hair was so nice that day!

I have more (LOL) so here's just a few...
I loosened the curls a little after dinner at 313!





My hair was so soft & nice! 

On normal days it is NEVER like this O.O
I have been lazy with using the hair mask/masque & shampoo...

Still using up my old bottle! But I wanna do more colours with the dip-dyed bottom so I'm going to have to start with the products they passed me! My contingency plan is to chop it all off, that's why I picked dip-dye in the first place haha. And I didn't want to bleach the top because it'll hurt my scalp!
Salon Vim did a really good job with my hair though, happy! :D

  1. The dip dye looks nice on you.
    Especially since your hair is super long! Would you consider wilder colours (e.g pink/turquoise) one day? Haha.

    The dip dye is nice! Really suits you and something different :)

  4. Sapphirone: YES! That's my plan! I'm gonna go lighter the next time round so it should end up platinum blonde, then from there I can do colours more easily! :)

    Jannatul: Thank you :)

    Anonymous: I got it online from a girl who makes them! If you want you can email me & I'll try to search for her contact. Anyway I'm wearing two, one is from her & the other from Diva! Diva & F21 have flower wreaths/bands!

      Can you still contact the maker of the flower wreaths? I would love to purchase it!

  5. Your before hair look much healthy & silky. The dip dye makes your hair look unhealthy.
