My hair was pretty badly damaged when I walked through the doors of Toni&Guy Kuala Lumpur at Troika on my last visit. The previous salon had unintentionally caused quite al alarming amount of breakage from leaving the foils in too long. Throughout my head there were ‘foil sized’ chunks of hair here and there simply missing. I had also gone through some stress around that same time and I believe I lost a great amount of hair from that as well. There were certain strips of hair that were orange’ish (from the salon before the one that caused the breakage) and in general my hair was crazy unhealthy.

I’m happy to report that the treatment of minimising the amount of chemicals we put in my hair mixed with full rounds of Olaplex have already started to improve my hair. On this visit, Matt Mack, the salon director and ex (British expat) colour director for all of Toni&Guy London, also added in a step by brushing SmartBond onto my entire head and letting that also soak in.

Matt also recommended a product that (OK this sounds stupid but) has literally changed my hair’s life! You’ll see it in the video but I have almost entirely replaced hair spray, something I’ve been using since my teens for Label.M Resurrection Style Dust. It’s magic! If you have fine or thin hair it will rock your world, trust me on this one.

I said it in my first review but if I had known that a British expert colourist worked in KL, that’s where I would have gone first because he has dealt with my very thin, fine hair for years!
