Hellooo โ™ฅ

How have you been? I’ve been pretty busy working non-stop. I really feel like I could use a long break. December, why you so far ๐Ÿ™

l'oreal professionnel x the jeromy diaries mocha mania beauty blogger bangaloreAnyhoo, ever since I got my new hair colour done, LOT of you have been complimenting and asking where I got it from. Well, if you are living in a cave and don’t follow me on Snapchat ๐Ÿ˜› I got a hair makeover by L‘Oreal Professionnel at Play Salon recently. ๐Ÿ™‚ While most of you already saw my new hair colour, in this post, I’ll be explaining in detail the colour used on my hair and how the entire procedure was done!

play salon phoenix market city bangalore the jeromy diaries (667 x 667)So I visited Play Salon for the very first time and was totally blown away by it’s decor and courteous staff. I kid you not, they are some of the best stylists in Bangalore with some amazing talent when it comes to hair styling and hair cut. ๐Ÿ™‚ I met an intern Debbie who also happened to be my sister’s friend! Such a small world. ๐Ÿ™‚

kerastase hair scan at salon (1224 x 1632)Anyhoo, my hair colour was done by senior hair stylist Kapai (I hope I spelt that right ) who examined my already coloured hair with Kerastase hair scan to check my hair texture and gave me ideas of what can be done to first lighten out the hair colour and then try #Mocha hair colour by L’Oreal Professionnel.

l'oreal professionnel hair protectant (375 x 667)The first thing Kapai did before starting off with the hair colour treatment is applying drops of L’Oreal Power Dose all over the hair ends as a protectant. He then lightened the previous colour on my hair after which he started applying Mocha colour on my hair.ย  MOCHA is the colour trend with INOA of 2016 ๐Ÿ™‚ L’Oreal Professionnel has introduced Mocha as the hair colour trend of 2016! Seen on hair of models on the ramp across fashion capitals, on actresses in Hollywood as well as in commercials of the most fashion-forward brands, MOCHA is undeniably the go-to colour for hair right now is what L’Oreal Professionnel has to say.

3D Box + Tube INOA 2 (663 x 366)L’Oreal Professionnel introduced 4 new shades of MOCHA under its no-ammonia portfolio โ€“ INOA!

Shades:ย  4,8ย ย  |ย  5,18ย ย  |ย ย  7,18ย ย  |ย ย  8,8

L’Oreal Professionnel about INOA:

With – INOA, the meaning of Hair Colour has changed. Itโ€™s secret?ย  – Its Oil Delivery System (ODS2) – A revolutionary formula that harnesses the power of oil to treat hair as it colours!

That, is the miracle of INOA – 6 weeks of intense hydration and nutrition leaving hair softer and shinier than before. With INOA, your hair is shinier by upto 50% than before the hair colour service!

Ammonia-free and odourless INOA allows you to lighten hair up to 3 levels, change your hair colour and perfectly cover grey hair, while respecting the scalp and hair fibre. The colour options are limitless with 60 shades.

Kapai used INOA 7,18 onย  my hair since I needed a cool tone of brown that goes with my skin tone. At first, I decided on the shade that Eva Green, brand ambassador for L’Oreal Professionel has on her hair in the commercial for Mocha Mania, which is a balyage of INOA 5,18 and 8,8 mixed together. But Kapai suggested that since I already had hints of light brown from the previous hair colour I got done, it would be best to use only 7,18. ๐Ÿ™‚

kerastase fusiodose experience the jeromy diaries (1224 x 1632) kerastase fusiodose play salon the jeromy diaries (1224 x 1632)After lightening and shampoo, Kapai applied INOA 7,18 on my hair for 5 to 7 minutes. After this, the colour was rinsed off using Kerastase Colour Save shampoo followed by conditioner. Kapai also gave some extra care by adding Kerastase Fusiodose that instantly adds shine and transforms your hair feeling smooth and manageable in 15 minutes. I cannot agree more! I absolutely LOVED this part ๐Ÿ˜€

Lightening the previous colour and shampoo took quite some time for me. However, if you are colouring your hair for the first time, the whole procedure could take 1 to 1.5 hours.ย  Here’s a little video I posted on Instagram of my shenanigans at the Play Salon ๐Ÿ™‚ Do watch!

It’s been a few weeks since I got the colour done and I haven’t seen any colour discharge as of such, thanks to L’Oreal Professionnel Vitamino shampoo or L’Oreal Pro Fiber. Whileย  Vitamino helps in colour radiance, Pro Fiber helps my hair from getting damaged.

And this is how my #MochaMania hair looked! I love the shades of brown this has. ( pictures give out the happiness, don’t they? ๐Ÿ˜› )
