Touching up hair roots at Komachi the Hair Cult

So the last time I dyed my hair was back in April or so, and my roots were really starting to grow out so I decided to book an appointment with my trust salon, Komachi the Hair Cult! It's a huge plus that they're located in Orchard, so I can go about my weekend plans easily.

Outfit of the day: Top from Hong Kong, Skirt from Thevelvetdolls, Heels from Aerosoles

Okay back to getting my roots dyed. Komachi the Hair Cult only uses organic hair dye, and coupled with their hair treatment, your hair doesn't shrivel and dry up much. They really care about your hair, and if you want to achieve a certain look, the stylists will advise you if your hair can withstand such treatment, whether your hair can even achieve the same look or not, based on their experiences.

Here's my hair and (gross) black hair roots when I stepped into the salon.

Quite obvious right! Haha. This is what 3-4 months of hair growth looks like. Opted for green eyeshadow that day.

Komachi the Hair Cult has good service, when I sat down, magazines were presented along with my choice of drink, which was a hot green tea, and later when my tea was too cold, they promptly changed it to a piping hot one!

First step was to apply hair dye over the roots, and lock in with their heat emitting rotating machine.

They put on plastic ear caps so your ear doesn't get any dye applied on it by accident! It's really cute and thoughtful :)

Said rotating machine.

After about 20 minutes, it was all washed off, and here are the end results! Oh, Meiko is amazing at braids, and she gave me lovely waterfall braids. Yay!

Meiko-chan! My roots don't really look that brown in this picture because of the lighting. Please see the next picture.

Tadah! Very happy with how it turned out because it matches the current faded brown the rest of my hair is like.

How gorgeous is this?? I am pretty hooked on this waterfall braids thing, should just use this style for my future wedding too. Haha.

Right profile. Meiko is a perfectionist. She actually re-did this 3 times in order to get it neat and organized. End result ? I LOVE IT! 

Curled the ends and here's the finished look!

One thing I really like about Komachi the Hair Cult is their huuuge mirrors that make your legs look long.

Not kidding.

 Thank you Komachi the Hair cult, Meiko and team for letting me trust my locks with you! :)

Komachi's signature hair and scalp treatment - reduce hair loss and leaves hair smooth & moisturized!

Happy Chinese New Year everyone!! Hope you guys enjoyed the break. I certainly did!!! It's been a few months since I last dyed my hair at Komachi the Hair Cult and I thought it was time my scalp deserved some pampering. Hair plays a super important part in forming impressions during conversations!

I've been blessed with thicker hair - but that has made me take that for granted. Though my hair looks full bodied, I drop a lot of hair daily. Whenever I comb my hair, shampoo my hair, or even just sitting down typing this, I can see and feel my hair drop, landing on my arms or on an untidy pile on the floor.

It scared me, so I finally decided to seek help from Komachi.

Before starting my scalp and hair treatment, I wanted a quick fringe trim! Thanks Meiko!!


Afterwhich I was introduced to the products that were going to be used on my hair. You can purchase them after the treatment for use at home too! These products are carefully tested and have achieved proven results in Japan! 

Hair products are best absorbed after a good wash, so the treatment began with purple rose shampoo accompanied by an amazing head massage which made my hair smell divine!

Head massages are the best!

Then began the green tea scalp treatment. Miko will segment your hair and generously brush it on your head, producing a nice, cooling effect! This treatment helps to balance your scalp's ph levels and deep cleanses your pores to get rid of impurities caused by dirt, dust, grime and free radicals in the air.

At the same time, it repairs the texture and cuticles of your hair :)

 My hair is able to breathe again! Hello healthy scalp!

Then my hair was placed in a mist steamer so the molecules can easily penetrate into my hair and scalp! Many salons use different types of machines to produce heat, but please remember that if you can feel the heat emitting to your face or your scalp tells you that the temperature is too hot, it is BAD for your hair! It is actually more damaging than helping. I was very pleased with the machine used at Komachi because I could still move my head to read and it was very comfortable throughout!

Once my scalp has locked in the moisture, the treatment was rinsed off, leaving a cool sensation that was soothing and refreshing.

After drying my hair, this Oil of Argan was applied as a supplement. It is 100% paraben and allergen free and it does wonders for your hair! It replenishes moisture and gives your hair that extra boost ;) This can also be used on dyed hair on days you feel your hair is feeling dry!

Verdict: I LOVE IT! Will definitely come back to get this again! My hair feels so much more moisturized, and I used to have an oily scalp but this is completely gone now. You can see how shiny my hair looks in this picture, and that's because it was SUPER SMOOTH!!

Meiko shows off her love for braids as she styles my hair for the afternoon out :) Check out that zig-zag in the middle.

Thank you Komachi the Hair Cult, Meiko and Miko for the wonderful service and for restoring my hair to its true glory!!!

Be sure to make an appointment before heading down for your treatment! So glad my hair loss has reduced tremendously :)

Komachi the Hair Cult using OCS Organic Care System Hair Dye

I've experimented with long and short hairstyles since primary school and I've decided that I like long hair on me. However, my usual hair was getting a little too boring for my liking, so I wanted to shake things up a bit. Was deciding between a perm or a hair dye and decided to go for the latter so that I could still look youthful.

Booked an appointment with Komachi the Hair Cult under Meiko, and crossed my fingers that it would turn out well, and I am so happy that it did!

PSST! Continue reading to find out how you can score discounts at Komachi the Hair Cult!


Unkempt hair, dry ends. Go away now!!! Also, the roots of my hair are really weak so I drop a lot of hair :( My hair is naturally a dark shade of chestnut brown, perhaps part of my german roots.

All ready for my baby step transformation! Notice how the ends of my hair look really dry? :(

Meiko began by cutting my hair. She is from Nagoya so you can ask her about things to eat in her hometown! She has been in this industry for more than 8 years :O

After cutting my hair, it was time for my first hair wash. I've always liked this towel wrapped around my hair kinda look. Oh! If you noticed, Komachi designed their very own slip on robe which prevents hair from falling on your clothes! Very thoughtful right?

Next came the big decision.

I asked Meiko for her recommendation on which hair colour I should pick, considering I didn't want something too obvious and inappropriate for work. She gave me three choices, ash, gold and toffee. After comparing between them, I decided that I liked toffee the best because of its vibrant and youthful shade. It was also several shades lighter than my natural hair.

Thus, Toffee it was!

Komachi the Hair Cult uses organic hair products and the best part is that it is AMMONIA-FREE! This means that your hair's essential moisture and protein levels are maintained so that your hair is not damaged by the colouring process. Woohoo!

You can create any color imaginable with Organic Color Systems products; fiery reds, intense coppers, rich golds, auburn browns, clean platinums and infinite natural tones. Plus, these colors are true to the chart, and don’t fade, with unrivalled coverage even on resistant grey hair and with natural a gloss/shine.

After deciding on a colour, Meiko went off for a while to mix the dye. When I saw the mix, I asked Meiko if that was going to be the colour of my hair because it's too light!! She laughed and said that the actual result will be much darker. Phew~

My hair rarely looks this neat.

After applying the mixture evenly on my hair, she placed a plastic bag on my head and plugged in an oscillating machine. This Heater machine heats up your hair slightly so that the dye will seep into your hair faster! It's important that the machine your salon uses does not use too high a temperature on your hair or it will damage your hair cuticles!! This machine was gentle and I barely felt anything at all. 

Some time passed and I got my hair washed again!

Meiko wanted to prevent my hair from being dry so she recommended hair treatment for my delicate hair!  This purple shade is quite nice huh. Haha! After applying this generously on my hair, it was time for another wash, blow dry, and to witness the finished product. Everything took about 2.5hours?


Behold, neat, smooth, silky, toffee hair!!! I was so pleased with this because it's a huge difference from my hair before! I couldn't stop smelling and touching my hair. SUPER HAPPY!!

Here's a side by side comparison for your reference:

I really like the OCS products Komachi the hair cult uses as it has:-

• 64 intermixable colors, concentrates, brighteners, and lighteners.
• The most natural, certified organic ingredients with absolutely no ammonia.
• True to color chart results with infinite flexibility to unleash your creativity.
• Semi, demi or permanent results.
• Up to 3 levels of lift with color and up to 7 levels of lift with lightener.
• Supreme 100% Grey Coverage of even the most resistant grey hair.
• Cleaner blondes and beautiful reds that fade on tone.
• Longer lasting tonal values that virtually eliminates color fade.


My stylist, Meiko! She also loves experimenting with braid hair designs and styles, so if you have a particular one in mind, just tell her and she'll make it happen for you!!

With her magic hands, she gave me waterfall braids and curled ends. :D I really love this lighter shade of brown!!

The braiding bit took her less than 10 minutes to complete. Wow!!

I freaking LOVE IT!! Wished my hair could stay like that forever. It's an elegant and classy look that's suitable for all occasions. I'm already looking forward to my next trip to see what Meiko has in store for my hair!!

 After my hair was done, I rushed to TWG to have lunch, was soo hungry!

Thank you Komachi, Meiko and Miko for your help!!! It's been a few weeks since my hair has been dyed and it's still healthy and smooth!! No regrets :)
