Acca Kappa Brushes & Contest

By 16:04 , ,

When it comes to hair care, I do the absolute basic. Which I have been told is not enough since I have dry hair. Though the absolute basic does not include combing or brushing me hair as I usually just run my fingers through it to put in place and tie it up. So when I was invited to join this contest by Acca Kappa, I was super excited because it involved their world famous brushes! Can't imagine myself brushing my hair.

If you want to know what this is about, read on.. ;)

Acca Kappa has been manufacturing their products for over 140 years. Wow right! It uses the finest raw materials combined with brilliant workmanship and meticulous attention to detail. This Italian brand is best known for its brushes of 200 types for different uses. Gosh I hardly even use the only one I own.

I learnt a bit more about the brushes with Mathew Matt, Creative Director of The Belfry Salon at Pavilion, KL. He has worked with the likes of Trudie Styler, Stella Tenant, Keeley Hawes to name a few.

Acca Kappa brushes are not only great for styling, but are also designed to massage your scalp and distribute the oils that secretes from your scalp from root to tip to help moisturise you hair. Hmm.. could this help my dry hair look healthy and shiny. You'll find out soon. *winks*

Getting my scalp analysed

The verdict is: Normal healthy scalp with strong hair shaft! *rejoice*

(L) Round Wooden Thermic Brush - RM120
For blow drying! Styling, curling & volume. Must have for any woman! Ventilated barrels allow greater flow of air from the dryer and prevents further hair damage since we blow dry our hair ever so often. It has perfect grip and nylon bristles that are correctly spaced with just the right height to prevent tugging of any sorts. Plus it lasts way longer than its cheaper counter part, like the brush on the right. Both brushes are about 3 months old.

Pneumatic Small Paddle Brush - RM100
Suitable for daily combing. Rounded tip to provide delicate massage on the scalp and natural rubber cushion to enable the pressure to be absorbed and evenly distributed on the whole brush for a gentle massage.

Beechwood Brush with Wood Pins
The cone-shaped wooden pins easily penetrate the hair, while the rounded tip of each wooden pin gently massages the scalp. Beechwood brushes are hand-finished and never varnished. It is also naturally anti-static!

Differet types of paddle brushes

Pneumatic Metal Pins
Designed to detangle wet hair before styling. Gives volume and shine to hair.

After an informative session, I was treated to a wash and style! Didn't see that coming but was well pleased with it. That must have been one of the most relaxing hair washes I've had in a while. The soothing scalp massage using the yummiest smelling of shampoo and conditoner nearly lulled me to sleep. I really need more of those. *sigh*

I'm just going with the style, The Turban is all the rage currently

And guess who styled my hair?! Matthew himself! I finally met someone who understands the woes of having naturally curly hair! It's a pain unless it's in a good mood, which hardly ever happens. The hair I mean.

The final look, Matthew gave me an editorial worthy style, loose relaxed curls. I would like to think it's kinda sexy. Excuse the moment of vanity, it's not often my hair behaves.
