My Hair Coloring & Hair Treatment at E3 Salon Masjid Jamek

During the recent Deepavali school holidays, I brought my son to E3 Salon to get his hair cut while I did my hair coloring and hair treatment. We love to visit E3 Salon Masjid Jamek because of their excellent service and strategic location near Masjid Jamek LRT station. 

My son has been here before for his hair cut. He told me he wanted to get his hair cut here because the salon was clean, seats were comfortable and most importantly, the hair stylists were very professional. 

This was how my son looked before his hair cut. His hair stylist, Nana washed his hair before giving him his hair cut.

The hair cut took about 35 minutes and my son was satisfied with his new look.

I visited E3 Salon Masjid Jamek because it was time for me to get my hair colored to cover my grey hair. This was how I looked before coloring my hair.

My hair stylist, Neo suggested that I color two different colors. Darker color on the top area to cover the grey hairs and a lighter brown on the lower part of my hair.  

The top part of my hair was colored first as shown in the photo above. 

Then a slightly lighter color was applied to the lower part of my hair.

After waiting for about 30 minutes, I got my hair washed and treatment cream applied to my hair. Later I got my hair blow dried by 2 hair stylists. E3 Salon hairstylists would usually work together to get things done so they can save customers' time.

Neo did my hair styling and decided to give me big wavy curls which I really liked.

My hair looked smoothed, shiny and healthy. Thanks to Neo, Nana & all the hair stylists at E3 Salon Masjid Jamek.

Natugee and Mrs. Malaysia World 'Healthy Is The New Happy' Event

Recently I attended the Natugee and Mrs Malaysia World 'Healthy Is The New Happy' event at Furama Hotel Bukit Bintang. This event was held in conjunction with the breast cancer awareness of Pink October. The purpose of this event was to let us know about the importance of aging gracefully, how hormones affect us as we age, how to improve the quality of our health physically & mentally, and how to handle depression. 

Click the video below to see more of what happened at the event. 

I was happy to attend the Natugee and Mrs. Malaysia World Health event to learn how to give myself more "me" time because busy women who are not sure how to solve problems mentally can get depressed easily. We should never give up on ourselves and live healthily. 

There were booths from Waka Waka KL, an indoor playground for participants to spin the wheel to win prizes. 

The Asianparent also had a booth there to promote their mobile app and participants could spin & win prizes too. To read more about their app, you can read my earlier blog post HERE.

Dr. Norhaslinda gave a talk on the different types of hormones and how hormones can affect our health as we age. She has a Master's Degree in Anti Aging, Regenerative Medicine and Aesthetics from UCSI University. She is recognized as a hormone practitioner from the International Hormone Society, Belgium under tutelage of Dr. Hertoghe known as the "Father of HOrmones." Some people tend to gain weight as they age because of the hormonal imbalance. This can cause depression, anger, mood swings, insomnia, night sweats, fatigue and lots more. 

There are also hormones that trigger belly fat as shown in the photo above.

We were introduced to Natugee products at the event. Natugee products are all natural & organic ingredients which are high in quality without coloring, paraben, SLS, SLES and side effects.

The founder of Natugee Sdn. Bhd. is Puan Rena Rifaee. She is 37 years old and a mother to 5 children. She has a diploma in organic skincare from Formula Botanica, United Kingdom. In her talk, she mentioned that we should read all product labels to know the product ingredients. She said we needed to know our skin type, the difference between true-dry skin and dehydrated skin, pores cannot shrink, skin should not be squeaky after cleansing because more sebum (oil) will be produced to compensate for the natural oil that was stripped off and thus cause breakouts.

Natugee is the sponsor for Mrs. Malaysia World 2019/2020 in honor of women who maintains a balanced life between family life and career. Natugee will expand its brand in the Middle East, Europe and the United States.
