Curly Haircut in Dubai at Kozma and Kozma Salon

July 30, 2016

I am so excited about this blog post because for once, I actually have an answer for when someone asks me about my hair. I’ve lived my whole life here and finding a curly hairstylist in Dubai has been impossible. I’ve had some hair horror stories with folks who have tried to cut my hair, so much so, that it had been a whole year since I had a haircut and a few months since I’d had a colour retouch. I was terrified of getting my hair done but when I heard Kozma and Kozma was opening up in Dubai, I grew optimistic. They actually have a separate menu for curly hair and when I met them at their launch party, they seemed to know what they were talking about.

I’m really glad I waited for them to open up because my appointment at Kozma and Kozma was probably the best hair salon experience of my life. Their hair stylist Julia knew exactly what to do to fix my hair, she was extremely knowledgeable and generous with tips and tricks for taking care of my curls- listen, I am plotting strategies to make sure she never leaves this country. I highly recommend going to her, she was professional yet fun and very patient through out the entire process of my hair transformation.

I got a Curly Lesson Hydrate & Style session, which is basically a demonstration of their curly styling techniques (which has been doing wonders for my hair btw) and I also got a curly hair cut, Olaplex treatment and colour correction.

Here’s a little video about my experience, I’ve included clips of our appointment and feedback on their technique. If you don’t have time to watch it, there are photos below!

Let’s talk about Lush, baby

November 2, 2015

There are certain events that make me so happy to be a blogger, and this recent Lush event had me gushing for about a week. We got to make bath bombs, try out new products and cult favorites, PETA was there, and the Lush staff are just so amazing. They also had an art installation on the floor that was breathtaking, I spent a good 10 minutes mesmerised. I was on a Lush high after I left the event and then I opened the goody bag…. ah, it was a good day to be a blogger.

Tangled is a rosewood and ylang ylang treatment that you slowly add hot water to until it turns creamy. You apply it to dry hair for 20 minutes and it detangles¬†and conditions. *Adds to never ending Lush wish list lush uae lush uae lush uae lush uae lush uae A sparkly bubble bar? SOLD. Check them out here. lush uae Nightwing¬†is this magical jiggly fruit jelly thing to cleanse skin and hair, you can store it in the fridge for an extra¬†morning pick me up effect. ¬†It contains aloe vera, lime juice jelly and Vit E for a skin softening effect and it smells lovely.¬† lush uae lush uae The art installation had “The Experimenter” projected on the floor, it was so magical! I highly recommend watching it here.

It’s basically a¬†shampoo bar that contains seaweed to soften hair and sea salt to give it body. I don’t know about the body part (big hair, naturally) but it leaves my hair squeaky clean and soft without over drying, and it lathers up quickly. I’m definitely taking it on my next trip, it’s easier to travel with and you can break off a piece instead of carrying the whole thing.

So, yeah, the Lush addiction continues ūüôā Do you have any Lush recommendations?
