My hair has always been a problem. I’ve been given an unruly type of hair that’s hard to manage. I had curls when I was a kid but when I grew up, it got all frizzy. I started going to the salon for straight perm when I was in first year high school. So yes, I’ve been sporting a straightened hairstyle for almost a decade now.
But you see, I kind of like messy hair on me. Straight hair is okay, but when it’s too straight, I feel like it doesn’t fit me. So even when I go to the salon to have my hair straightened, I stupidly wish that it wouldn’t be so straight that it would look so flat on my head. I just want to get rid of my baby hair but I still wish that my hair would have… volume.
When I went to Tony and Jackey last December 10, I was hoping that their rebonding treatment wouldn’t make my hair look too flat. The whole thing took 4 hours! Good thing I had Roald Dahl’s Boy to keep me occupied.
The only reason I look so bothered is because I was thinking of the price of the treatment. Ha. I skipped on the haircut because that would be an additional 500! So yeah, no thanks. But hey, it was the most I spent on a single purchase. Ever. I am quite stingy and I usually have a hard time letting go of money. Hee. But this time, I just said, the hell with it. I should treat myself from time to time.
Almost every mirror has this weird-looking thingy. I’m not exactly sure what it is. I have a terribly eyesight but some customers seem to be surfing online using the thing. WHAT IS ITTTTT?? I didn’t bother ask, obviously.
Also, I am fascinated with the Korean hair stylists because they were wearing corporate clothes and about 6-inch high stilettos. I don’t know how they could do their jobs so well while wearing such uncomfortable clothing. Come on, they have to stand all day and move around a lot. Yet, they manage.
They used this scary-looking machine, which, I figured, is probably the reason why treatment is so expensive.
They applied tons of chemical (which they called medicine) and shampooed and blow-dryed and ironed my hair. In between, I saw how flat it would probably look and I was still praying that they’d do something else. I planned to have full bangs but I backed out at the last minute.
But it turned out quite nice, and I’m quite happy about it. It’s not so straight now, though. Hehe. I’m thinking of having my hair dyed next February. I’m already looking at different brands of hair dye. Yes, I’m planning to do it myself at home. I want to do all sorts of experimental stuff on my hair while I’m still young. Wouldn’t dream of doing it when I’m already in my 30s.
