I Tried Kim Kardashian’s Hair Treatment

I had an impromptu salon day at Jing Monis Bellevue Alabang with the girls a few days ago and it gave me a chance to try this!

The Olaplex treatment! It's Kim Kardashian's secret to healthy hair.

During her master makeup class last year, Kim revealed that she uses this treatment and even sleeps with it on. It’s apparently the reason she can go from brunette to blonde without worrying about her strands breaking off. So if you want to bleach your hair or even just color it, make sure you use this to prevent damage (more technical deets about it here).

I tried Olaplex No. 1 and No. 2 to repair breakage and prep my hair for color.

The No. 3 bottle is suppose to be something you use at home, but I didn’t get to do so. Hmm, I will ask why the next time I visit. My first impressions: my hair became immediately became softer after the treatment and I like that I can use this to prep my strands pre-color. With the amount of styling I do, I really need something like this!

Done! Kat got her hair colored and Olaplex-ed also while Nikki tried the Macadamia treatment.

It’s my first time at Jing’s Bellevue salon and I really liked it. It’s smaller than Greenbelt, but there are lots of selfie spots (like the mirror above) and the lighting’s great. Super fun if you’re hanging with your girls!

Salons really make me happy. Hehe!

Now here’s what’s funny…after my salon treatment, I went for a hair cut the very next day with Jing again! This time around though, I went to the Greenbelt branch.

Oh gosh. It's shorter than I expected!

I really went into shock with this one because I wasn’t prepared for a bob. But since I trust Jing, I kinda just went with it. It’ll take some getting used to and my hair usually goes into shock for a few weeks after a cut, but so far…

It's growing on me! I just need to color my hair again to add more movement (and do a few more Olaplex treatments before I do).

I also felt super reassured, because a lot of celebs showed off different bob cuts during this year’s Met Gala. So once again, it proved to me that Jing’s really ahead of the hair game and he keeps me up-to-date with the hottest styles du jour.

Despite the initial shock, I'm glad I changed my hair. I was getting too attached to my long hair already. Hehe!

This cut really pushed me out of my comfort zone and it reminded me that a girl shouldn’t be afraid to change her style. It’s good to experiment, freak out a bit, and that’s one of the ways you can build your character—and figure out what works for you also. Watch out for new ways that I’ll be playing with my new ’do! I’ll be posting them here soon or follow me on IG and Snapchat (via @beautyandsparkl) for the scoop!
