Rebuild damaged hair with Chez Vous’ Trilogy System: Synchronized Advanced Hair Rebuilder

If you’ve been following my updates on social media, you’d know that I’ve gone through multiple hair colours in the last 2 years and most significantly in the last year when I’ve sported light brown with ash highlightspurple (which faded to a blend of blonde & purple hues, mad love) and grey hair colours. Whilst I did not regret the multiple hair colours as they were so much fun and made it easier for others to break the ice and approach me (“Wow, purple hair, so brave!” “Another hair colour?”), my hair was really dry and damaged especially after bleaching for five times to achieve a light grey hair colour. (And to think that I once dreamt of having Platinum blond hair, my hair would be fried!)

So when Chez Vous offered me to try out their latest Trilogy treatment: Synchronized Advanced Hair Rebuilder, I accepted in a heartbeat – God knows my hair needed the hair treatment!

Best Hair TreatmentThanks to Chez Vous Trilogy System: Synchronized Advanced Hair Rebuilder, my dry and damaged hair (left) was restored to a healthier and manageable state (right)! 

Just what exactly is Chez Vous’ Trilogy System? 
A simple, systematic and sustainable 3-phase approach to achieving beautiful, manageable and healthy-looking hair: Rebuild, Resculpt, Revitalize.

The three Trilogy hair services work synergistically as a complete beauty regimen for the hair, as well as separate, customised treatments for specific hair conditions and lifestyle needs.

And what does Chez Vous Synchronized Advanced Hair Rebuilder entails?

Utilising three state-of-the-art ingredients (bond rebuilder elements, a potent mix of amino acids and anti-breakage actives) in combination with a highly- effective delivery system to penetrate these complexes deep into the hair, this treatment promotes genuine and permanent reconstruction at the cellular level.

The bond rebuilder elements repair broken bonds in the hair shaft that are prevalent in damaged hair so as to strengthen hair from deep within. The amino acids complex then seals the repaired protein bonds in the hair shaft for long- lasting resilience, giving it a distinct edge over other strengthening treatments in the market. Hair is stronger, more resilient and perfectly prepped for the Resculpting Supreme treatment to follow.

In a nutshell, it is basically a hair repair treatment filling dry and damaged hair with nutrients to repair and rebuild broken bonds and strengthen hair from within, so hair becomes stronger and healthier over time. 

Check out my hair transformation over the last few months:

Purple hair, this was after 4 times of bleaching to achieve a hair colour light enough for the purple to come through:Hair Repair Treatment Hair RepairPurple hair fades to blonde and purple hues – my favourite hair colour combination by far!:

Thereafter I had bleached my hair one more time to a grand total of 5 times to achieve a light grey hair colour, this was when my hair became really really dry and frizzy and it was very hard to maintain – I had to go through a strict regime of: Shampoo, conditioner, mask, hair moisturizer/essence at night and hair oil in the day just to tame the frizz and keep it manageable! Despite my damaged hair condition, I reallyyy loved the grey hair colour too!

If I washed my hair in the day, this is how frizzy it would become, I had to wash at night, blow dry and sleep overnight to reduce the frizz (but I don’t always wash my hair at night, haha): Ena Blog Review Chez Vous Trilogy Synchronized Advanced Hair Rebuilder_0001Really hate and dislike mad frizzy hair! Ena Blog Review Chez Vous Trilogy Synchronized Advanced Hair Rebuilder_0009On mornings after I washed my bleached hair at night – more tame and manageable hair. 😀

Car Review: Volvo V40 For The Sporty, Practical Individual

Volvo V40 Car Review_0000

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure to test drive Volvo’s V40 T2 Sports Hatch for a weekend and here’s my review for the layman (sorry, no fancy car geek speak here), followed by excerpts from the official press release about the car’s key features and specifications! 😉

Volvo V40 Car Review_0007

The New Volvo V40 T2 exudes the aura of a compact car with large car capabilities. It is equipped with Volvo’s Drive-E powertrain – designed and built in Sweden – offering a world-class blend of
drivability and low CO2 emissions.  It’s hard to not fall in love with this beautiful car; it’s sporty yet practical exterior and interior design is a sight to behold.
Volvo V40 Car Review_0003
There a few features of the car that I love, one of them being the keyless access and ignition – something that’s not new to the car world, but definitely worthy of mention as it’s a feature usually found for bigger cars and not easily available in smaller, entry level cars. I also love the overall feel of the car on the road, thanks to a powerful yet quiet engine, a gear panel that’s ergonomically designed for smooth gear changes, luxurious full leather seats and a comfortable interior for both front and back seats despite it being a rather compact car.
Overall the Volvo 40 is definitely a car I’d recommend if you’re looking for a great, safe and reliable compact car. The only few things I can think of that it is lacking is an inbuilt GPS system (though it is available on a slightly higher-end variant) and lacking a reverse camera( granted it does have a reverse sensor). I would also prefer if it came with a higher, instead of lower body, which is available for Volvo V40 Cross Country.

The Volvo V40 that I test drove came in a beautiful striking red, a colour I never imagine I’d drive as I prefer monochrome colours like black and white. Admittedly, a few days with the car made me think that a little red car might not be a bad idea, as it looks kinda hot and cute.


Volvo V40 Car Review_0008


The New Volvo V40 T2’s wide shoulder line stretches back from the headlamp with a sharp line to echo the rising beltline. As it reaches the end of the rear door it sweeps up into an integrated “hook” – a trait inherited from the legendary Volvo P1800. This highlight continues rearward integrating flawlessly into the tail lights. The roof silhouette contributes to the impression of a car leaning forward – eager to take off. The car is finished with a dynamically-sculpted rear to further emphasise its width and muscular stance, with the lower area “blacked out” to achieve an athletic, low and wide look.
Designed Around People
The interior of the New Volvo V40 T2 is designed around people with a strong emphasis on ergonomics, comfort and an engaging driving experience.The wide instrument panel, together with the fluidity of the door design, creates a spacious feel where driver and passengers can bask in a relaxing atmosphere of true Scandinavian luxury.
All-New Petrol Drive-E Engine
The New Volvo V40 T2 is powered by an All-New 1.5L turbocharged petrol engine. It has 122 bhp and 220 Nm of torque. Fuel consumption is 5.5 L/100km with CO2 emissions at 129 g/km
City Safety – Active Up To 50 km/h
The New Volvo V40 T2 is equipped with the enhanced City Safety system. This system is active at speeds up to 50 km/h allowing the car to brake auto matically should the driver fail to react in time when the vehicle in front slows down or stops, or if the car is approaching a stationary vehicle too fast.
Pedestrian Airbag Technology – A World First
In order to alleviate the consequences if a collision with a pedestrian is unavoidable, the New Volvo V40 T2 can be fitted with Pedestrian Airbag Technology, a world first. When the sensors in the front bumper register the physical contact between the car and the pedestrian, the rear end of the bonnet is released and at the same time elevated by the deployment of the airbag, cushioning any blows to the head from the front windscreen.

Watch a video explanation here:

Cross Traffic Alert – Covering Your Back 
Cross Traffic Alert uses the radar sensors at the rear end of the car to alert the driver on crossing traffic from both sides when reversing out of a parking space. This is especially helpful in tight and crowded areas where the side view might be obstructed by infrastructure, vegetation or other parked cars.
Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection technology
New advanced software, including more rapid vision processing made it possible to extend Volvo Cars’ detection and Auto Brake technology to cover certain cyclist situations as well. 
Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection with Full Auto Brake is equipped with an advanced sensor system that scans the area ahead. If a cyclist heading in the same direction as the car suddenly swerves
out in front of the car as it approaches from behind and collision is imminent, there is an instantwarning and full braking power is applied. The technology also detects if a pedestrian steps out into the road in front of the car. If the driverdoes not respond in time, will sound a warning and automatically activate the brakes. The V40 can also detect, alert and automatically brake if the car risks colliding with another vehicle in front.
Road Sign Information – An Extra “Eye” on the Traffic Environment
Road Sign Information supports the driver by displaying road signs in the instrument cluster. It can also be combined with the Speed Alert function, which provides the driver with a visual warning in the speedometer if the speed limit is exceeded.
Active High Beam – Relax While Driving in the Dark
Active High Beam technology helps the driver utilise high beam more efficiently. It offers automatic switching between high and low beam at the right moment, when an on-coming vehicle is detected.
Driver Alert Control – Detecting and Warning Tired Drivers
Driver Alert Control technology is designed to detect and warn tired and distracted drivers. Sensors register the car’s movements, while a control unit stores the information and calculates whether the
driver is at risk of losing control of the vehicle. 
Adaptive Cruise Control & Distance Alert – Keeping a Safe Distance
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) promotes comfortable driving by using radars to automatically maintain a set time-gap to the car in front. Queue Assist helps to maintain the set gap all the way till the car comes to a complete stop.

As of March, the price of the Volvo V40 is $145,000. ($182,000 previously published was for the Cross Country version)

“Refresher Course”  Tips 

Ena Teo Volvo V40 Car Review_0003
It’s been a while (a few years) since I last drove, so my dad had accompanied me to pick up the car on Friday before I had a “refresher course” on Saturday and finally driving it on the roads by myself on Sunday. I highly recommend going to Kallang Stadium area where there are a lot of empty car park lots to practise driving and parking! Also, driving over the weekends (while avoiding town area) is a lot easier as the roads are not as congested compared to week days.
Thank you Volvo Singapore and One9Ninety PR for the kind invitation and offer to test drive the Volvo V40 for the weekend! Visit the Volvo V40 microsite here and Volvo Singapore FB here.

Back to 1965 Movie with KDK

Tho late in coming, today I’d like to share about a movie I’d watch with Fion, at the invite of KDK! 1965 is a movie about Singapore during her pre-independence days and the struggles and racial riots the people went through. It was a heart warming movie to know how the different races came together to help each other and it was also a timely reminder of how far Singapore’s come as a country, nation and as a group of people since those dark days – and we should never take our peace and harmony for granted. The movie starred local celebrities Joanne Peh, Qi Yi Wu (though they are a couple in real life, they were not acting as a couple on screen, haha) and veteran actor Lim Kay Tong as Lee Kuan Yew. Having watched Jack Neo’s Long Long Time Ago during this year’s Chinese New Year, 1965 is a much heavier movie in terms of political coverage and emotional scenes – if history’s your kind of thing, you’d love this – though I did feel the movie was a little slow and boring, without the local celebrities star power, the movie would not have had such an appeal. I’m not sure where you can catch the film now since it’s no longer screening, but you can watch a clip of it here on Toggle (my first time actually visiting Toggle site, hahaha).

Fight Period Cramps with these 3 Tips

Let me share my two worst period cramp experiences – the first one was when I was in JC, I almost concussed while trying to crawl out of a toilet because I was in such severe cramps. I ultimately made it to the Art classroom and ended up sleeping for 1+ hours before my dad came to pick me up. The second bad experience was on the way for a facial session at Plaza Singapura and I ended up sleeping for 1+hours before needing a friendly female security guard to guide me to the taxi stand to get on a cab and lying down at the back until I made it home. I never want to relieve these nasty experiences ever, which leads me to my top 3 tips on how to fight period cramps:

1.Mentruheat Pack

IF I had Menstruheat pack with me then, these experiences probably won’t have happened! I can’t recommend these enough – during the 1st / 2nd day of my period when it’s the worst – I’m all bloated and cramps are the severest – I open one of these and I stick it under my shirt where the abdomen / pain is and then it just soothes the pain so much! The best part is the heat lasts for 12 hours straight!

If you’re wondering how heat helps relieve period cramp, check out this article extract:
Presenting his findings to the Physiological Society’s annual conference, Dr Brian King said: ‘The pain of colic, cystitis and menstrual period pain is caused by a temporary reduction in blood flow to organs, causing local tissue damage and activating pain receptors. ‘The heat doesn’t just provide comfort and have a placebo effect – it actually deactivates the pain at a molecular level in much the same way as pharmaceutical painkillers work.

You can find and purchase them online here, $9 for 4 pieces.

2. Exercise Regularly

Exercise can help relieve menstrual cramps in a few ways. It increases blood circulation, which helps cramps to go away. Menstrual cramps are also made worse by stress; exercise is a well-known, natural way to lower stress. Extract taken from this article.

3. Increase Complex Carbohydrates (Whole Grains)

When we have periods, our brains crave for sugar, by increasing the intake of complex carbohydrates such as whole grains will help counter fluctuating blood sugar levels, which in turn helps lessen cramps. Extract taken from here.

Here’s to a healthier, happier period cramps free life!

Thank you PSLOVE for sending these Menstruheat packs over for review!
