Finally, after forty eight years I had the guts to try a new hairdo. My hairstyle is always plain-long-straight-hair and I always wanted to try curly hair. It’s just that I’m scared to try something new. At first I was skeptical because of the following reasons: (1) bigger possibility to have damaged hair (2) I’ll be needing more hair maintenance (like hair mousse, wax or conditioner which will add up to my daily budget) (3) What if it doesn’t suit my look?! Daba?! My hair is my crowning glory and it’s a matter of life and death! Chos!
Anyhoo, how did I find the BEST digiperm salon?! I simply asked my office mate Irene. Why her?simply because she had a beautiful digipermed curly hair and it lasts for almost one year now. She highly recommend Beauty Brick Salon to me. I didn’t think twice, kasi obvious naman sa ganda ng curly hair nya. I also searched the net and checked all the forums and I was stumbled upon the rave reviews at the forums. They say the salon is the pefect place for digiperm and the staff was friendly. I immediately called Beauty Brick salon and made my appointment three days before Cyler’s birthday party. Para bongga ang hair ni Mother sa big day ni baby, diba?! Sorry naman excited lang ang lola ninyo.
Anyhoo, back to my topic, I arrived 30 minutes late at the Salon(as usual,hehe). When I entered the salon I was greeted a warm welcome by all the staff including Mr. Shin(the Korean salon owner).I look at my back akala ko kung sinong artista dumating..Ako lang pala! Chos!
When I got to the reception, the receptionist-slash-assistant-slash-translator of the salon asked me if I’m Ms. Sharon and I said “hindi po imagination ninyo lang po ako”, just kidding, I didn’t say that. I said “yes, it’z me!” And so, my attempt to have my hair baptized into the chemically treated mane world began. I was scheduled last Thursday at 1pm, but then the salon was a bit jam pack already. Good thing they assisted me immediately even though I am 30minutes late.
First, they wash my hair. After having my hair shampooed, Mr. Shin trimmed my long hair. Then they gave me several Korean magazines full of images with digipermed hair. After the quick trim, Mr. Shin approached me and checked the condition of my hair and he noticed that my hair is damage due to hairdye. He suggested medium sized curls for me, instead of large ones, because the large one may loosen up quickly. He was speaking in Korean and was translated by his receptionist-slash-assistant-slash-translator. A keratin treatment was applied first then they rinsed off. Afterwards a solution was applied to my hair and was told to wait for about 15-20 minutes after which they rinsed off.
Then they started to curl my hair, Mr. Shin did the curling with the help of his two staff. They even gave me a head, back, and shoulder massage while my hair was being soaked. They also kept on talking to me while I’m waiting to get my hair done. The staff made sure that I was comfortable the entire time and kept offering me pillows and magazines. I love how efficient the salon is. Then after curling my hair they wrapped up my hair and placed underneath the heating hat.
The assistants told me to call them if I feel uneasy or a little warm. She told me that it is important to tell them if you feel even the slightest discomfort to avoid having your scalp burned. 20 minutes later, they removed the machine and applied neutralizer on my hair. Mr. Shin then checked the curls, applied treatment to my scalp. The four staff blow-dried my hair and I’m literally drowning by the air that comes from the blower. Na-sobrahan sa pag assist, but it was so nice how they take care of their customers.
After all the procedures and three hours of waiting, I finally had my kikay curly hair!
Now here it is.. Drumroll please!
They told me not to use shampoo for two days, but I can wash my hair the day after my treatment. Mr. Shin taught me how to style it – let the hair dry naturally and apply mousse or wax to maintain the curls, shape and bouncy hair. I didn’t add any bangs anymore cause it’s not bagay to me, magmumuka lang akong si Dora na kulot version. When I left the salon I was greeted again with a big “thank you” by all the staff. I said thank you to Mr. Shin and he said “Selemet pow!”, ang taray ni Mr.Shin lakas maka-slang! Gusto ko sanang sabihin “Weleng Enemen Pow!”. Hehehe Mr. Shin opened the door for me when I left the salon. See how nice they are?! My gulay! They’re exceptionally nice and very professional.
Btw, I only pay Php3,300 and I found it reasonable considering that I had a long and thick hair plus the awesome and great staff and very hands on owner-slash-stylist, Mr. Shin. I must say, it’s WORTH EVERY PENNY! This Frugalicious Momma will surely go back there. I must say that Mr. Shin and his staff are perming genius! Hats off to all of them. So when it comes to my hair I definitely trusting no one but BEAUTY BRICK SALON.
Overall, I was so happy with the results, in fact when I posted it to FB nag-trend agad ung post ko. Chos! Everybody liked my new kikay hairdo, which is I like the most. I even asked hubby if I look beautiful to my new hairdo and he said “oo naman! Kaso di ako makapag-isip ng maayos ngayon gutom nako.” Boom! So, does it mean naghaha-hallucinate lang siya sa gutom kaya niya nasabing maganda ako?! Kaloka!
