Hi everyone,

It’s been a roller coaster days for me, last week I have a blast with all the events and opportunities, and few days ago I have to went through a surgery to remove an embryo stuck in the right fallopian tube. It was a really painful process of recovery for me. But I believe God has a plan for me and will help me get through it all 🙂

And I want to raise a glass for every women who went through a surgery like me (kinda like a c-section) and has walk through it (literally and in quotes), kudos!

Now, let me share one of the fun parts of an event right before the surgery. The makeover with Makarizo!!!

These are my images of before the makeover haha! I’m in desperate need of makeover.

-*-

The colors has faded, lost their charms and wits, I’m bored ^0^ I need a pro touch. Makarizo hair makeover come in a right time. They called me for a makeover and I immediately said yes! Then they arrange an event for 12 beauty bloggers, which I must say, they carefully prepared everything well, so all of us who came that day, get the right attention, without any single second wasted.

-*-

Without further ado, below is my after look ^___^ My hair looks so much healthier, stylist and no more boring colors.

-*-





And here are the process from before to after.

I came around 10 AM. 10 trainers are ready to give us a look we are looking for. So to make sure it happens before a makeover is done, we have to consult our desire to the team. What kind of hair style do we want or look for? What colors looks best on us? What happen to the colors on a hair like mine, where it was bleached, perms, etc? Will it last? Etc?

-*-

Due to the condition of my hair which is weaken to the core. perming is highly avoidable. Colors such as blue, orange and green are avoided as well, by me hehehe! I don’t think I look good in any of those colors. Fret not! The staff and trainers from Makarizo also carries the same value as me and focus on my personalities and style that works for me (and each of us who came that day). The trainer who assist me also help me understand my hair condition and why colors wont last that long on my hair, so she gave me tips on which colors may last longer, we came to a conclusion that an ombre of deep purple and daring red will be the right combination for me.

-*-


Pretty isn’t it?! Heehee, and the best thing is, the process only took one cycle. No need bleaching, color the red first, followed with purple all over the hair and rinse well.

-*-




Ms. Nurma carefully making sure I get what I want, 2/3 of deep purple from root to almost the end and 1/3 of daring red at the ends. Look at how dry and brittle my hair was, you’ll see at the after photos, my hair doesn’t look dry anymore. Say hello to radiant full colored hair.

-*-


It was a very fast and rewarding experience for me. Oh and I don’t feel any sting, pain, or other discomfort throughout the whole process.

-*-


This is my image after the wash. But during the rinsing process, Ms. Nurma added some color protector (kinda like a mask) so the colors stays ON longer and better. The hair also become glossier and less tangled after the treatment given by her.

-*-



Then she dried the hair using a blow drier, I see the silkiness, moist and a radiant glow from the hair. I love it!

-*-



I took a lot of images after the makeover is done haha! I’m so happy with the result. The whole process is around 3 hours: 30 minutes for consultation, 1 hour for applying the colors, 20 minutes of leaving the colors to penetrate into the hair, 15 minutes of rinsing and treatment, the rest will be for drying, styling and taking pictures for Makarizo ^__^ quite fast right?!

-*-



But the team of Makarizo doesn’t want me to go home empty handed. They gave me a bunch of products for the newly colored hair. A series from MK3. Shampoo, Gel Conditioner and a Cream.

-*-


A beautiful light white cream in a pot (oh, how I wish it’s in a tube), that smells good and as a leave-in protection for the hair to stay silky, less tangled and protects the colors too.

The cream is used after the shampooing is done, the conditioner are given and rinsed out. So on a towel dried hair apply a small amount of cream (around walnut size for medium-long hair) especially from the middle part all the way to the ends. Avoiding the roots.

-*-


These are the texture of the shampoo and conditioner. Ms. Nurma already warned me about the 3 days rule of not washing the hair so the colors may stay longer on the hair and really sets in. But on day 2 I can’t help myself and rinse it anyway due to the oiliness. But The second wash was done 4 days later (since I went into a surgery and unable to take a shower). She also reminds me about the first few washes where there colors will stain the water and anything it touches when wet, such as towels.

So far I’ve done 3 washes and the colors are keep coming out whenever I wash the hair. But my hair is still almost the same as when they are colored last week. So, everything that Ms. Nurma said turn out to be true and I thank her for that ^__^ so there’s no ‘surprises’ afterwards. She prepares me for process and what happen next.

Okay, back to the review . . .
The shampoo is light and easy to lather on. Giving the hair and scalp a cleanliness without striping them dry. The gel conditioner is a unique light conditioner that helps the hair to stay soft and smooth. They smells quite strong and stays for hours after the wash. My husband compliment on the scent as well when he’s around me, so it was really a noticeable scent.

-*-

Thank you so much Makarizo for my hair makeover and the products that help support the colors to stay vibrant and healthy. You have a wonderful team that help me with the transformation and I can feel all of you are passionate in what you do and put a lot of efforts making sure all the beauty bloggers get the style/colors/hair design that matches them. It was an honor for me to experience the makeover and hope to see you guys again soon!

-*-

Since the details are pretty clear, like as clear as the product ^^ let me share my experience in using it.

The Hair Recovery I have are in tubes, the liquid is transparent, not as sticky as most serum, considered light and easy to be distributed, especially on damped hair before hair drying. It does help to smoothen out the hair and less tangled. The dryness of the coarse hair also reduced, best to be used before any ‘hot’ tools including hair straightener, curler tongs, etc. I can’t say they 100% protected the hair from further damage but they do give a bit protection and add some shines to the hair. I think it is best to use the whole treatment series for hair overall well being.

Use it little by little and brush the hair before adding some more to avoid using too much.

Next item is:

MAKARIZO HAIR REPAIR

-*-

Makarizo Hair Repair adalah masker vitamin rambut yang menutrisi korteks rambut.

Dengan kandungan Phytantriol, Pro Vitamin B5, dan Royal Jelly. Berfungsi melembabkan

dan menutrisi rambut, menambah kekuatan dan elastisitas serta merawat rambut yang rusak

dan kering menjadi tetap sehat, lebih indah dan lembut alami.

dengan air segera. Gunakan minimal 2 kali dalam seminggu, atau sesuai dengan kebutuhan

Tersedia dalam :

kemasan tube : 45ml (Rp.12.500)

kemasan sachet : 15 ml (Rp. 4.000)

It’s the product that has been used by many saloons all over Indonesia to treat damaged hair. The yellow-orange cream is a bit like pudding mousse in terms of texture and smells pleasant, even if ones doesn’t like it the smell will easily fades within 2 hours. Used on shampooed hair and a quick 2-3 minutes will help repairing hair condition. I noticed it the most on my coarse hair parts. Like the cream and nourishment inside it fills in the ’empty’ parts on hair strands.

This product need to be rinse out. And even thou’ it is said 2-3 minutes is enough, sometime I like to leave it on longer like 5-10 minutes. The whole tube for my long hair can be use 2 times. The thing about this product or any of hair products here is that they can be used as often as needed and when the hair already gets better and healthy again, use it sparingly just to keep it healthy and nourished.

Makarizo Anti Frizz

Botol 265 ML : Rp. 50.000,- 

Note : Produk bisa didapat di Alfamart, Indomart, Giant, Carrefour, Hypermart, outlet-outlet seperti

Century, Guardian, Charmant dan Watson, toko kosmetik.

The Anti-Frizz for me doesn’t do the job as said, for me it gives the hair some strength and vitality instead of anti frizz. The usage is very easy, using the spray, apply them deliberately all over the hair wherever needed and add some more on the most broken parts, which is at the end of the hair. But for me is in the middle part due to over processed chemicals. This one can be used almost anytime, unlike the serum which is used only during drying/styling the hair.

But I didn’t experience the hair become more flexible, instead it feels like there’s a contradict of being slick. It does making the hair stronger thou’ and I think that is it’s best feature.

Next is the fun products since they are developed with more ‘attitudes’ with the scents and ‘colorful’ features.

Since it was only sachets and I can only gives a quick short review. The milky colored shampoo smells really good, I think it’s the signature from Hair Energy range. It was a moderately fine shampoo for dry hair but I still see it like a ‘fun’ product instead of a ‘serious’ product that will help the hair to recover, at least in a short period of time. The shampoo had to be used with other products for the hair such as mask, serum and conditioner.

Honey Dew, Solusi Tepat untuk Rambut Sehat

Rambut kering, kusam, bercabang, dan kasar ketika disentuh adalah indikasi bahwa rambut

mulai tidak sehat . Faktor penyebab rambut tidak sehat ada banyak ;seperti paparan sinar

matahari yang berlebihan, kekurangan nutrisi , dan yang paling sering adalah proses kimiawi

seperti pewarnaan, pelurusan atau pengeritingan.

adalah produk perawatan rambut yang sangat direkomendasikan untuk

mengatasi masalah kerusakan rambut . Rangkaian produk Honey Dew terdiri dari 2 product

dengan fungsi dan keunggulan masing masing:

1. Honey Dew Repair Mask – Menutrisi Korteks

Honey Dew Repair Mask, menambah kelembaban dan memberikan Nutrisi Alami

terbaik bagi batang rambut, menggantikan protein yang hilang pada batang rambut

serta memperkuat batang rambut, mencegah rambut patah ditengah akibat proses

kimia atau pengeringan (blow dry & catok) yang berlebihan.

HONEY DEW Repair Mask mengandung Royal Jelly yang berfungsi sebagai “Hair

Moisturizer”, merupakan salah satu Nutrisi Alami terbaik yang membantu memberikan

kelembutan “ekstra maksimal” pada setiap helai rambut Anda. Rambut pun terasa

lebih halus dan elastis. Sedangkan kandungan “Phytantriol”-nya yang mampu

menjaga keseimbangan kelembaban air pada rambut.

2. Honey Dew Nutriv Serum – Melindungi Kutikula

HONEY DEW Nutriv Serum diperkaya akan vitamin (A,C dan E),, mineral dan

amino acid, merupakan salah satu Nutrisi Alami terbaik yang berfungsi sebagai “hair

moisturizer”.

Kandungan “ekstrak madu”-nya yang mampu memperbaiki dan menutrisi rambut

yang sangat kering, rusak dan pecah/bercabang, memberikan kelembutan yang

maksimal pada rambut sehingga rambut terasa lebih halus-lembut.

Penggunaan Honey Dew Nutriv serum akan membentuk heat shield yang akan

melindungi kutikula rambut dari panas matahari , polusi , blow dry, rotating, maupun

alat catok.

Gunakan setiap kali habis keramas (towel dry) maupun sebelum styling . Rambut

menjadi lebih lembut, tidak mudah kusut dan berkilau. Penggunaan HONEY DEW

NUTRIV SERUM tidak perlu dibilas.

The Honey  Dew serum looks really like a dripped honey and again as other serum, not to be used too much as it will give the hair a weight. The smell is somewhat like sweet musk, the color is like honey, the texture is also like honey and I’m glad it’s not sticky as honey does. It gives my hair shines and softness. Compared to the Hair Recovery serum, Honey Dew gives more ‘weight’ to the hair and silkiness. It’s like if you choose lighter serum Hair Recovery is the better option, but if the hair is coarse and needed more protection (like mine) Honey Dew is the choice to go.

 And today I’m going to share some of them which I have at home and have tried it for the review.

-*-

 

First, is the Mint Sorbet shampoo, I’m very excited to see this one since I’ve been looking for minty shampoo for normal hair. Yes, the details said to prevent dandruff as well, prevent is not the same like other over the counter products which is definitely for occurring dandruff.

I wish for a cold breeze but receive a slightly tingling and cool reaction. My husband said he needs something more mint than these shampoos, but perhaps he is used with the very cold shampoo ^__^

Let’s do the chart:

minty feeling: 2 out of 5

cleaning service: 4 out of 5
soften the hair: 3 out of 5

Overall, a good shampoo which cleanse the hair and scalp with a mild mint flavour.

-*-

 

So you want something minty, huh?! This one does it, hubby approved! ^__^ A serious mint in given with a very wonderful scent. I love the mint refreshing scent which stays on like perfume for the whole day.

We use the Mint Sorbet Hair Messag Cream after the shampoo and towel dried hair. 3/4 of the palm is enough for me and 1/3 of palm for hubby. I prefer the cream to be all over my hair and avoiding the scalp, while he is all over with the scalp involved too, he experienced more frosting mint while I enjoy the scent only. So if used all the way from the scalp, you’ll experience the mints as well.

After usage: The normal hair will become so soft, smooth and glossy too, while my damaged hair will looks tangled free, smoother  (but still not as smooth as those with normal hair) and enjoy smelling good like normal hair do too.

-*-

The funny thing is that in the cream have these tiny beads (baby blue colored) which looks and feel like a scrub. I thought they will burst when massage into the hair or at the palms, but they don’t. So is it a scalp/hair scrubber? Perhaps. I’m clueless heehee.

-*-

Next is the black chocolate, ooohhhhh \^0^/ I’ve tried the shampoo before (Click: HERE) which gives me a soft and smooth hair, (but still needed some conditioner) now, here are the conditioner. A light chocolate cream which looks like liquid chocolate literally and smells like liquid chocolate too. It was a unique experience, the exterior features really encourage me to lick them, which I didn’t, hello, self control O.O Careful thou’ you’ve been warned.

The result of using the conditioner is a softer hair, here’s the chart:

Tangle-free: 3 out of 5
shine added: 3 out of 5

healed broken hair: 2 out of 5
revitalize the hair : 3 out of 5
unique experience plus texture: 5 out of 5

Overall, it’s a good product with natural ingredients which gives the hair a softer and smoother feeling and a whole lotta chocolate.

Still think the conditioner not chocolate enough?

This one will!

-*-

 

A super duper dose of chocolate is seriously found here. It’s not just chocolate mousse texture but heavy pudding chocolate mousse with density and thickness and dose ^__^ Pulled it out of the jar need a bit effort since the opening is small and a bit sharp on the edges, I wish it came in bigger ‘mouth’.

-*-

I put the chocolate paste on my shampooed and toweled dry hair, the sensation it created is indulging and for any chocolate lover it will be an experience they longed for. Imagine a hard day at work and get back in a pampering routine with the most famous ingredients in the world that gives relaxing effect. I even crave some chocolate just buy smelling it.

I leave it on like any other hair treatment products, using a shower cap, I leave it on for 15-2o minutes and rinse it well. The after effect is an all day long chocolate scent with soft, detangled hair and fuller feeling. Like they just added some body to the hair.

-*-

Now, we moved on to the next level, a Body Scrub Seaweed. A muddy light green scrub with very tiny beads, even the Minty Sorbet Hair Massage Cream have bigger beads ^__– and the scent is almost like seaweed too, so it would be something like sea breeze.

The opening is super small, I can only put a finger in to get the scrub out. The texture is thick but not as thick as Black Chocolate Hair Massage Cream. I use it on a damp skin and the light scrubbing action able to clean the skin and not overdo it. Instead of dry skin, the Seaweed Scrub gives me a plump dewy skin afterwards.

-*-

 The skin become softer and gently removed dead skin with no harshness. Suitable to be used several times a week. I’ve used it after and without shower gel/foam the result is just the same, a bouncy and happy skin after usage.
 Last, it’s the item which I recently use, the Strawberry Yoghurt.
 -*-
The scent is just like any strawberry yoghurt I found in supermarkets. The clear gel texture is cleaning the hair and gives a silky finish. I do need a conditioner afterwards. Suitable for those who are looking for a strawberry yoghurt scent but I think the overall effect can be found in the Hair Message Cream.

So far I’ve been experimenting and mixed a bit, the chocolate and mint can be mixed, the mint sorbet for the scalp and chocolate for the dry hair, the result is like a well blended choco-mint ice cream, delicious!!! The scalp get energized with the minty feeling and the hair become smooth and nourished with the black chocolate.


Thank you Makarizo Indonesia.
 
Stay tune for more juicilicious hair and body products.

-*-


Last but not lease, all the members of Indonesian Beauty Bloggers are going home with products from the Black Chocolate series ^__^

Stay tune for my review, coming up next!


Hi everyone,

IBB is collaborating with Makarizo presenting their newest collection of Texture Experience. The Black Chocolate Shampoo is here.

I think for us, locally, Makarizo is not a brand we haven’t heard off, their ads are everywhere and almost every salon also carries their products. I’ve tried them for the first time around more than 12 years ago. For more than a decade Makarizo keep on developing various products to caters one’s need for the hair, scalp and now, body too.

-*-

A simple packaging, design and details, hmm, I think I need more details than these. I try to found some more information from http://www.makarizo.com but failed to find any. So the review will be based on personal experience only.

-*-

The clear gel in the middle is the shampoo. I thought it would be like these chocolate liquid, somewhat like a hot cocoa ^__^ but even thou’ it’s clear, the fragrant chocolate scent is very noticeable. I use the product after lathering on my palm, gently massage the bubbles on a wet hair and I feel that the hair become so soft and slippery at once.

At first I thought the shampoo will be too dry, but it’s not, the sensation on the hair is quite moist, then I’m afraid it will be too oily on the scalp, but again, it’s not. This shampoo gives my hair the ‘right’ feeling. I don’t experience a greasy oily scalp, not dry hair strand effect.

Overall, I like the shampoo from the experience using it but the lack of information regarding the product drew me back a bit. I hope this brand will give me more information regarding the item, either from the website or printed on the packaging.

Hi everyone,
 
As I have a multicolored processed hair, treatment is important. Treatments in salons and treatments at home to make sure the hair gain nutrition or at least feels soft and smooth, radiant and tangle free to reduce breakage.

There are many products out there and I’m always looking for the one that either best seller, long time favorite, new items or those with unique features.

Today I picked one from Makarizo, L’Oreal Professionnel and Alfaparf.

Here are the reviews.

Hair Energy with Kiwi Extract for colored hair by Makarizo. Now, who doesn’t know this one, almost any gal locally at least used it once. Been in the distribution zone for years, maybe around 5 years and famous for it’s . . .  smell.

Details from www.makarizo.com

Hair Energy with Kiwi Extract for Rebonded, Colored and Permed Hair

Formulated for hair that has undergone chemical processes like rebonding, perming, coloring and bleaching.Kiwi extract is useful to give hair the nutrition it needs for chemically treated hair.
It also acts as an antioxidant that protects hair.
Kiwi extracts contains Vitamin C, E and Kalium to keep moisture of the hair balanced and leaves hair shiny and soft to the touch.

I know and used on and off over the years and found the product to be quite fun. Fun? Yes, the product doesn’t really repairs the damage on the hair it’s just adding some softness, a low-medium detangling effect and wonderful fruity scent. It’s like conditioner but with a whole lotta fruity perfume added. Doesn’t see nor feel any significant long term effect for my colored processed hair. And if not rinse well, can be quite sticky and the hair will easily goes limp within ours. While other products here are easier to be rinse with normal temp water and doesn’t cause any limps and weight.

Suitable for those with normal to dry hair. And those who are addicted to the scent, I know I do 🙂

In Indonesia it was used like a creambath or when feeling lazy like a hair mask. Use after shampooing, massage them well on hair tresses, leave it on for 15-20 minutes, best with steamer and rinse everything well. I think all the products here can be used the same way.

 

Proteline, one of the items I’ve know for decades and used to be very famous. Smells weird, like medics. I don’t mean smell bad, just weird. Like a mix between cough syrup and floral cocktail, oh well, you’ll understand once trying it.

It does give the hair smoothness, but not completely easy to comb. Easier, but not 100% tangle free. As the parts that was broken do looks better, thicker and like nourished, coated with added shine. But for my deeply coarse hair, I need something more.

I enjoy the light and fresh weightless feeling afterward.

This product suitable for those with naturally dry hair condition, but wont be satisfying for over processed chemically dry hair.  Mildly processed like colored, permed or just let say, went through 1-2 chemical processed will still able to find happiness with Proteline.

 

A thick white creamy product that is enough for my medium-long hair and smells comforting and aquatic, a bit manly but still lovely at the same time. Used after shampooing and toweled dry hair. The cream feels really thick but like sticks on the hair strands, instantly the hair feels so soft and smooth. This is my favorite amongst these three. It have a lovely marine scent, does help the hair to manage the dryness, chemically dryness as well, repairs some damage (not completely but it shows some repair action), add shine and vibrant to the colored processed hair.

The hair regain a bit more strength and do seems healthier than before. This is an item that gives the very damaged hair it’s needs, protection, nourishment, detangling action, smoothness, softness, shines and smells great too.

Suitable for lifeless, very dry, brittle, and damaged hair from chemical process.
