My Monthly Hair Affair Part 2: Shiseido Hair Spa Indulgence @ Shunji Matsuo Ngee Ann City

Our hair is one of the first thing people notice when you meet for the first time, and many people tend to focus more on the colour of their hair and forget about the condition of it. This is especially so for me, as I have the tendency to be lazy and go for a pony-tail for convenience, overlooking the need to treat and trim my damaged hair.
shunji matsuo2_gMy hair has lost its curls from the perm 7-8 months back, and the hair that was damaged from the repeated dyeing and bleaching is finally growing out. I requested to have the damaged portion sniped off and my hair straightened, but the stylist said that my hair’s not ready to go through another round of “chemical torture”. I have to go really short if I’m to do so. Not really ready for a pixie hair style, so ok, I got to wait. 🙁

Shiseido Hair Repair Treatment

shunji matsuo2_fFannie, my hair stylist recommended me the Shiseido Hair Repair treatment before trimming my hair. This is a 4 step treatment: Wash, Treatment, Steam and Target Repair. Spicy (the girl in the photo) applied the scalp protection, followed by a massage that made me jus want to drop my phone and sleep! It’s simply heavenly. (If you realize, I’m looking super serious on the right picture as I was trying very hard to get a clear picture before my brain shut down on me)

shunji matsuo2_eThis is my favourite part of the treatment! I get to lay down and doze (although I have to constantly be conscious me opening my mouth or drool!). The rest of the process was all done on the hair wash chair, including the hair detox treatment which helps eliminates calcium ion pile-ups within the hair to restore the hair to its natural state.

When to do a Hair Detox?
I saw it somewhere that you can rub the hair ends between your fingers to test your strands. If your ends feel like “Barbie Hair” – Plastic-y and slimy, you are in need of a detox!

After the hair detox, it’s time for a hair surface repair treatment to repair the damaged roots and ends. Fannie told me that my hair length is the “in” thing now, not too long, not too short, and I should maintain it as cutting it too short will be such a pity. So yes, I will listen to the expert as she knows it best!


shunji matsuo2_bRemember those cheesy hair advertisements where the model or celebrity will flick their hair here and there? That was my exact feeling after the treatment, I could almost almost feel my hair flying behind me when I walked out of the salon. It felt so light (or should I say my head felt so light after the relaxing massage) that I almost skipped out!

How Long Did it Last?

shunji matsuo2_cI’m not sure if this is a common problem for any of you, but many a times, my hair looked great after a treatment for only 2-3 days and it would return to the original frizzy state!

But the effects of the Shiseido Hair Spa last me more than 2 weeks (I used conditioner daily), longer than any other hair treatments I had. If your hair has undergone any form of chemical treatment, a weekly hair mask will be ideal, which I am guilty of neglecting that!

  2. phyliciamarie says:

    I’ll prolly do that as well, once my perm grows out. I got my hair dyed thrice, bleached once, and permed all within the year!

    your hair looks healthier after the treatment! and you look so comfortable lying there XD

    Treatment nicely done. Looks fancy at all, and new term learned: Hair detox. Somehow, we really need that sometimes.

  5. Vanessa says:

    Shiseido is a very famous brand in my country and its products are a symbol of high class cosmetics. So your hair treatment with Shiseido outstanding products must have been a great indulgence indeed. Your hair looks so smooth and shiny, and soft after the treatment!

    Wow, what a fantastic treatment! I love how full and healthy your hair looks after the treatment Tiffany and your cute is fantastic! Very trendy with the shoulder length locks 🙂

    Your hair looks really amazing! This spa treatment really worked out well for you. 🙂

  11. franckxethee says:

    That was a really great hair make over. I guess your hair deserved its monthly pampering.

  12. Loudthinkin says:

    Your hair does look amazing after the treatment! If this effect lasts for 2 weeks then it’s definitely worth getting done!

  13. Kylie says:

    The before and after, I really can see the different.. Keep on going to spa and one will have beautiful shinning hair in a few months time.. 🙂 Just need to invest time and money in our hair to be beautiful..

  14. JeniG of Kalikotpepot says:

    Awww, I love your sassy pics (especially the playful eye shot:). Thanks for the helpful tips. I don’t know if we have that kind of Spa here in the Philippines-going to research it.

  15. John says:

    They seem to be good as the result is nice especially the hair. I find it nice you blogged about them. I’m sure people will get to know them more.

  16. Louise says:

    The treatment looks very effective and the photo where you were lying down looks very relaxing! I too had dry and bad hair after a couple of dyes so I decided to naturally grow my hair up to my shoulders so I could have the dry hair chopped off. Did this because I was too afraid of the treatments… I was afraid it would make my hair more dull. But if I find out about this kind of treatment here in the Philippines, I would definitely give it a try.

Tell me what you think!
