#JOICO HAIR REJUVENATING SYSTEM

A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to get a JOICO Hair Rejuvenating System Treatment.

As I was having my hair washed and treated, MiMi, a JOICO hair consultant was telling me how the treatment worked with each step.  It was very informative, and it was great knowing what was actually happening to your hair.  Found out that the treatment puts back the 19 amino acids your hair needs.

MiMi then gave me a pamphlet showing me how the JOICO treatment worked on each hair strand.

How it works

How it works

You’ll see that it’s a 4-step treatment.   It pretty much reconstructs your hair with real proteins and you can see in step 4 that products are available for you to purchase after your visit to the salon.  I’m not normally one to just believe in everything a product does, however this is a high-end product and not something mass-produced that you find in any store.  It’s definitely a quality product.  MiMi explained to me that very little product is actually needed due to it being concentrated.  So your shampoo & conditioner will last you very long.  However, nothing beats being pampered at the EDL Salon.

#GOODY BAG – WHAT DID I GET FROM THE EDL Hair & Beauty LAUNCH PARTY?

On the 24th January 2015 I attended the EDL Hair & Beauty Studio on Lynnwood and Kryolan launch party.

It was a fabulous affair indeed, there was lights, cameras and a lot of glamorous action.

IMG_1376

We were surrounded with champagne, delicacies, music, photographers, sexy cars, people, celebs of course and so much more.  The EDL store was open for business and tours for anyone at the launch.  The owners Natalie & Esidio Camara and Elaine & Danny de Lima can be extremely proud of what they’ve achieved with this salon.  Across the board is the consensus that this salon is totally different to any other in South Africa.  It is a clean, refreshing, vibrant, professional space with that European feeling, as it’s situated right next to AROMA.

You will always see the owners, manager,  the professional artists, hair stylists, nail and beauty therapists there.  Ready to make you feel very special.

Towards the end of the evening, some of us lucky ladies received a gift bag with lots of goodies in.   The items were:

IMG_6331.JPG

INGREDIENTS
125ml water
60gr butter
70gr flour
1ml salt (if unsalted butter was used)
2 extra large eggs 

METHOD
Place water and the butter in a medium sized saucepan. Allow butter to melt. Don’t let the water boil.
Remove from heat. 

Add the flour and salt and return to hear and stir quickly until dough comes together in the centre and comes off the sides. 

Remove from heat for about 5 min. 
Add the eggs in one at a time and stir well after each addition until dough is stiff again. 

Place tablespoon dollops on a greased tray or use a piping bag for longer shapes. 
Bake in a preheated oven at 200degC for 10 minutes and then reduce to 180degC and bake for another 15 min. 

Switch off and leave to cool in the oven or you can take it out after 20 min or so. 

Only cut in half once they’re totally cooled. Melt chocolate (100gr) and dip the tops into the chocolate. 

Whip about 250ml cream and icing sugar together to taste. Fill the pastry. Add the chocolate covered tops and you’re done!
