Gray Hair Transformation • 90's Hairstyle, Bandar Sri Petaling Review

October 13, 2019

Hi guys, today I'll be sharing about my hair transformation with 90's Hairstyle in Bandar Sri Petaling!


90's Hairstyle is a salon located in Sri Petaling, and I recently tried their service out.

The shop is located in a very nice area near lots of shops, so if you're coming with friends/family, they don't have to wait for you in the shop and lepak somewhere else.


The shop itself is quite aesthetic/clean, and the first thing I noticed was the lack of hair on the floor + the fragrant smell inside. No salon/chemical smell at all!


I was greeted by Jenny (my hairstylist) and was led to my seat:


They serve drinks here as well, and since the haze was quite bad I opted for tea:


The last time I dyed my hair was 1 month prior to my visit at 90's Hairstyle. Before that, I dyed my hair around April. Although my hair has grown a bit, as you can see the colour was quite uneven. I had black, dark brown and brown:


The reason why I decided to go with gray hair was because it was a long time since I had bleached my hair (almost 1 and a half years' time!) and I wanted to try out Olaplex since the offered it in their salon! If you guys don't already know, Olaplex is a line of hair repair, “bond building” treatments. It can be mixed in bleaching products to minimize damage or it can be used as a separate treatment.

When I was still in college, I frequently bleached my hair with 40 volume developer (12% peroxide). This is the highest concentration of developer and is great at lifting your hair. However, it is also the most damaging. I didn't do any treatment at the time, and bleaching my hair by myself this way really made my hair dry and brittle.

I stopped bleaching my hair when I started working and tried to recover my hair. It is now back to its healthy state, so I wanted to try out a hair colour that involved getting my hair bleached so that I could feel the difference in texture + if Olaplex was really worth it or not.

Jenny started off with this Milbon Scalp Support Oil for scalp protection! Since I was doing bleaching, she wanted to protect my scalp:


Next, she went in and mixed Olaplex with the bleach:


She did not touch scalp at all, but even when some bleach did touch my scalp/skin, there was no pain at all!


After applying it to my hair, we left it on for 20 mins:


After 20 minutes, Jenny gently scraped off the bleach and proceeded to bleach my hair a second time, this time leaving it on for 30 mins:


As you can see it looks quite light already! After that we headed over to their wash area where we washed the bleached away + used purple shampoo to remove the brassiness:


Jenny also applied Olaplex no. 2 as a treatment on my hair and left it in for 10 mins, followed by washing it off.


After washing everything off, Jenny proceeded to dry my hair. I could feel that my hair was still thick! When I previously bleached my hair myself, my hair would always feel finer/thinner and a bit brittle. My hair was actually very soft and felt very nice.




I guess that's the power of Olaplex!

After bleaching it was time to move on to the dye. Jennie started with the same scalp protector again:


The dye that they use is called Ordeve Addicthy, and there's a few colours to choose from:



I didn't want to go for a light gray and wanted a more sophisticated, dark gray:


After discussing with Jenny, we decided to mix the GrayPearl shade with Silver!


After preparing the dye, Jenny proceeded to apply it to my hair:


I forgot how long we left it in (I forgot to take note, sorry!), but we washed it off afterwards.

Before drying my hair, Jenny applied some treatment:


She applied step 1 on my hair:


Followed my steaming/misting it with this machine:


After around 10 minutes, she applied step two of the treatment and left it on for 10 minutes.

After that we dried my hair:


And voila! Here's the final outcome:


I'm very happy with the outcome, and I love how chic the gray looks!


Here's some snaps outside the shop under sunlight:


The colour was really nice and looked quite natural!


The next day it looked very nice and vibrant as well:


As with all dye jobs, it's recommended not to wash your hair for the 1st 3 days. The treatment made my hair quite soft, and by the end of the 3 days, the softness was still there. My hair got a bit greasy though, so I usually put it up/braided it to prevent getting pimples haha.


After the 1st wash, the colour was still very vibrant!


The colour lasted me around 2 weeks, which is around standard for gray hair. It's very hard to maintain if you don't have purple shampoo at home, and gray hair in general does not last very long..


I got a few weeks wear out of the gray hair and I enjoyed it while it lasted. My hair has now faded to this nice ashy blonde, which I really love:


It still looks grey in certain lighting, but its more of a brassy, ash-blonde under sunlight.

One thing I noticed was that compared to my previous bleached hair, this one was very even and did not leave my hair dry/brittle. If you're planning to get your hair bleached, I recommend getting Olaplex because it really does help in protecting your hair + lessening the damage done by the bleach.

Overall my experience in 90's Hairstyle was very nice, and I recommend their services! Since I'm still loving the colour which my hair faded to, I think I won't be dyeing it any other colour anytime soon. However, I would consider coming back to their shop again to touch up the colour next time/experiment with other colours!

And that's it for this post! I hope you found it helpful/informative.

See y'all in my next post!
