My Khoobsurat Moment : Anniversary Dinner

 

A few weeks back, my husband and I celebrated our anniversary with a dinner date at our favorite Indian restaurant in Tokyo. We had just returned from a 2 day mountain climbing tour from Mount Fuji and needless to say, we were quite exhausted from our trip! I chose a simple black and white dress for our date and dressed it up with a colorful neck piece and a red lip. Adding a bit of color on the face and around it is the easiest and most effortless way to brighten up one’s look. Especially if you’re feeling tired – a bright lip adds instant life to the face!

Hair Coloring Myths Busted!

 

Before I started coloring my hair, I had a lot of doubts and misgivings about using Hair Color. Even though I needed it to cover my white strands, I was worried that hair color might be difficult to apply at home and would damage my hair terribly. In this post, I have addressed some common myths regarding hair color ~

Myth #1 : Hair Color gives a dry, damaged look to the hair

 

It depends on the type of color you are using. Permanent dyes and bleach do cause visible dryness and damage but semi-permanent hair colors are much gentler on the hair and cause minimal damage. I have been using semi-permanent hair colors for a while now and my hair doesn’t look dry or damaged. But few years back when I had experimented with highlights (which was done by bleaching few section of hair), my hair did look excessively dry and straw-like. To preserve the shine and health of your hair, I would recommend going with a ammonia-free, semi-permanent hair color like the L’Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss.

 

 

Myth #2 : Hair Color causes premature graying of hair

 

This is completely false. Graying of hair is governed by genetic factors and to some extent, stress. Gray hair results due to deterioration of the pigment producing portions of the hair follicles. As we get older, the production of the type of melanin that gives a specific hair color decreases and hence hair gets lighter and more translucent with age. So all this action occurs at the hair follicles which are not affected in any way when we color our hair!

I’ve had a few white strands since a few years and sadly they are all in the front hence very visible. I started using hair color every few months to mask the white strands and the L’Oreal Paris CCG has been a favorite!

I have used the shades Dark Chocolate, Chocolate and even Black in the past. Today I am using the shade #316 Plum.
