KMS California came out with something new and it took me quiet a while to finally write about it, so for me they are new but actually they are already out for a while. frizzy hair? I guess a lot of ladies can answer this with a simple YES. so I am sure that you will be happy to hear more about these new buggers:
TAME FRIZZ and HAIR STAY
thats the name of the line and I got to try the de frizz oil, the shampoo and the HAIR STAY maximum hold spray. my hair can be frizzy, especially when it rains a lot and the air is humid. also when I leave my hair air dry my roots can get really frizzy, so when I got the parcel I was very excited and had high expectations. now lets see what they say they do:
de-frizz oil / 100ml
it claims to control frizz and humidity for up to 3 days.
its a lightweight feel, non-greasy oil that instantly is being absorbed instantly. it is humidity resistance and provides heat protection. it is very easy to use, just work through towel-dried hair and style as usual. you can also use it on dry hair to further reduce frizz. this is another great hair oil. as you may know I have already tried lots of different oils (KERASTASE, REDKEN, THE BODY SHOP etc..) and it has become a regimen for me to always apply some drops of oil to my damp hair before blow drying it.
tame frizz shampoo / 300ml
it claims to prepare for frizz reduction and smoothes the hair surface. lather,
rinse. repeat if necessary. mmhhmm, it smells devine. so far I really see a difference when washing my hair with this shampoo. my hair roots are not frizzy and I dont have to add a ton of cream or oil to control the frizz. thumbs up for this bugger!
maximum hold spray / 245 g
it claims to give a firm hold and to be humidity resistant. it has an instant ultra-firm finishing and shine effect up to 24-hour. how to use, like every other hair spray, keep a distance of 25-30 cm from dry hair.

something new has reached my mailbox : ) thank you very much, I am happy to try these buggers. I have recently cut my hair to a long bob at COIFFURE WINTER and also changed my haircolor to a granny grey. I will soon show you a more detailed change blogpost. stay tuned for that. and now back to the new products, what did I get?
shampoo with brilliant color protection
conditioner with brilliant color protection
smoothing fluid with brilliant color protection
this is definately something that I can use. changing my hair color really had an affect to the health of my hair. another thing is that I want to keep the color as long as possible and with this brilliant color protection I hope for the best. so, let me try these buggers and tell you what I like or dislike about them.

dry shampoo had a real revival during the last couple of years, I remember when I was a teenager I only saw my grandma using these kind of products. but now the market is flooded with dry shampoos – for different hair colors and with different scents.
lets start with the BATISTE brand – they are very well known for their dry shampoos because thats what they do. I am super happy that one can now buy them in switzerland too. before I had to buy them in france. there are different scents, like TROPICAL or BLUSH but my true favorite is the one for dark hair. eventhough I have colored my hair lighter at the ends my roots are still dark and therefore I love using a dry shampoo that matches my hair color.
another nice dry shampoo is by REDKEN and it is called PILLOW PROOF. what a funny name. also this bugger works for me and I really like the scent of it. unfortunately the powder is light, so it takes me some time to blend it in. but after a couple of strokes with my brush it looks neat and fresh.
do you wonder how dry shampoos work and why I use them?
back in the days I was washing my hair almost every or every second day. about two or three years ago I started washing my hair only twice a week and I saw a huge difference in my hair. washing your hair too often is not good for your hair and if you have colored hair it will fade a lot faster. so of course you can not just switch from washing your hair every day to washing it only once or twice a week. these things take some time. your scalp needs time to adapt. during that process dry shampoo comes in handy as you can spray it to your roots when you would have actually needed to wash your hair. in my case my scalp started looking less greasy and now my hair is absolutely used to only being washed twice a week. the dry shampoo absorbs the grease from your scalp, mmhhm sounds lovely, but its effective and easy to do. spray it to your roots and use a brush to blend in the powder. its super easy, you will see.

I got these nice buggers sent to my house and so far I have already tried the SIREN WAVES. a nice textured cream that held my waves throughout the day. I am looking forward to using the other two products. I am sure I will vlog about them via my YOUTUBE channel.
if you have a stressful day and need something to cheer you up I have exactly the right thing for you. treat yourself and experience a scalp massage. I did that a couple of weeks ago at COIFFURE WINTER in Basel and it was awesome. they offer an ayurvedic scalp massage and they have different oils and waters depending on your hair and scalp type.
awww how can I describe it, it is just wonderful! they have great skills and know exactly how to relax their clients. I was asked if I wanted my feet/legs up and if I wanted the chair to massage my back during the ayurvedic scalp massage. and I think thats all I can say, it was awesome and I can only recommend to check it out.
a couple of months ago I changed my hair color and got this really cool bronde/ombre look but after a week of vacation in sicily at the beach my blonde ends were almost breaking off, thats why I had to say goodbye and cut the blonde parts off. now it loks really cool too as it is more of an ombre look now with a much more natural looking gradient. sorry for the washed out photos I took them with the SAMSUNG galaxy alpha phone soon my phone history will be online and there you can read all the pros and cons of the last 3 phones I was using. this photo below shows me right after the massage and as you can see I am very happy and relaxed. : )

with royal orchid oil by GUHL. my friend Laura is testing these two products the SHAMPOO and the CONDITIONER and she will tell me what she liked about it and what maybe not – we will see.
I made a little research about the price and I found out that these products they are the cheapest at MÜLLER (6.90 CHF) and most expensive at MANOR and COOP (9.50 CHF)
my questions for LAURA:
how many times a week did you wash your hair?
did you only wash your hair with these products?
what products were you using before?
would you purchase these products?
alright, lets give Laura some time to wash her hair and I will get back to you. stay tuned. X
Kérastase has launched a new luxurious line called CHRONOLOGISTE for salons and for at home use. they discovered the new molecule ABYSSINE in the vulcano grounds of the pacific deep sea that completely changes the way we can treat our hair. I was told that the line will be available from February on in the selected Kérastase salons and shops that sell their products in retail.
I am super happy to try these buggers out and so far it has not been hairwash day so I can only tell you something about the new perfume oil (parfum en huile) as this is the only product I have tested yet. so it is a very light leave in oil to perfectly seal the hair and make it look shiny and above all that it makes your hair smell really really good. mmhhmm – the fragrance of the oil is a mix of roses myrrh, musk and woody accords. It reminds me a bit of the CLINIQUE scent BEYOND ROSE just in a lighter version. I read that it will be sold for 59 CHF and the bottle holds 120 ml. I know a rather pricy product but I am already convinced that it is worth every frank. <3 I dye my hair quiet frequently and I can really see that it is getting a bit drier due to that very fact and also the dry winter heating air.
PARFUME EN HUILE 120 ml 59 CHF
rose – musk – myrrh and woody accords
CRÈME DE RÉGÉNÉRATION mask 200 ml 59 CHF
abyssine – vitamin F – ceramide – vitamin E
BAIN REVITALISANT shampoo 250 ml 31 CHF

thank you for letting me try the Kérastase DISCIPLINE treatment at KEN&SEM in Basel. It was a blast! I have already introduced the new line – click here to read more >>
so what did they do?
they wash my hair with the Bain Fluidealiste 250ml/ 29 CHF then they put the MASKERATINE treatment. section by section they add the product from the roots to the ends – then they blowdry it and afterwards they take a flat iron (180°C) to lock the product in the hair. then they wash the MASKERATINE out and add the Soin N2 – blow dry again and style my hair with the Fluidissime 150ml/ 39 CHF – DONE!
so I really felt a difference in my hair structure, it was somehow more even and less frizzy. I LIKE!
