Going Balayage with Schwarzkopf!

Valentine's Day this year was extra special, as Schwarzkopf Professional India planned a Valentine's Day special date with my hair to shower it with some TLC, and you guys can guess after having known me for so long, that I would have opted for pampering my hair with some fresh hair colour, cause there is nothing more that I and my hair love, than some fresh colour and a new look!

The Before and After below show you the transformation and I am sure you love it as much as I do!

I was invited to Schwarzkopf's ASK Academy where head trainer Bony Sasidharan took over to give me my new look. We decided to go with Balayage which is the hottest hair trend in the world of hair colour these days. Balayage is a technique for highlighting hair in which multiple colours are used and the resultant look has the colour graduating from dark to light in a natural looking way. Bony used Schwarzkopf's heritage colour brand IGORA ROYAL for my hair, which provides extreme coverage and is supposed to last for a long long time.

Since my hair is originally dark brown, we mutually decided to go for a mix of blonde and copper brown for bringing out the best of my hair and the technique.

Also I came to know about Schwarzkopf Professional’s first Bond Enforcing System - Fiberplex during this session. Fiberplex protects hair from breakage during the lightening, highlighting or colouring process by strengthening your hair which also makes the colour last longer. It removes the fear of hair damage and loss of quality during the colouring process. This made me really happy cause I have fine hair which needs a lot more care when coloured. For me Fiberplex N°1 Bond Booster was used and it was mixed directly into the colour.

After about leaving the colour in the hair for about 45 mins to an hour, it was washed off and voila, I had a whole new look!

Bony advised that I should use the Schwarzkopf Colour Freeze range to take care of the hair colour. This claims to be the 1st color locking hair therapy for zero fade and has the new pH 4.5 Balancer Technology. It works with Lactic Acid & Calcium Hydroxide to tighten and stabilize the matrix at its optimal pH of 4.5, to deeply freeze color pigments inside the hair for ultimate color perfection and anti-fade effect.

Thank you team Schwarzkopf Professional - Bony, Rohit and Zarah for this new look and feel which I am loving!

I love how glossy my hair looks and am so glad to have tried out the Balayage technique this time!

This video just made me feel like I was in one of those glamorous hair product ads! 😉
