I really want to have a nice, smooth and straight hair but I don't have enough money back then for this hair treatment.
September 2009, My sisters gave me money for my first hair rebonding. My hair didn't got any treatment even hair relax and digital perming except for hair spa years ago.( In short, I have a virgin hair ^^ ) I decided to go to Cosmopolitan Salon - Dapitan branch
Their rebond with washable cellophane costs P1500. Having cellophane is a must so hair will not become brittle/damaged.
I got treated for 3 1/2 to 4 hours. Even the salon is small, it has many customers especially students. (this branch is near UST). I didn't wash my hair for 3 days and I can clip my hair after 3 months. I know that hair must not be put behind the ear but after 1 month, I did it and my hair is still straight.
The staff said that I must have it power dosed or I have to get my hair treated every 1 or 2 months so I can maintain my healthy hair but I really didn't follow it. I know that my hair isn't really dry to get those treatments and if it isn't, there are many home made remedies or I can use oil to prevent brittleness/dryness.
This is my hair 7 months after the treatment. Hair is really a crowning glory and it made a huge difference in my appearance.
My rebonded hair lasted for one year. I got my haircut at Tony and Jacky, a korean salon, so I can grew my hair longer with a style and without having a growing frizzy hair.
I don't want to get my hair rebonded during hot days so I don't get sweat too much. I really waited for November or December.
Three days ago, I decided to get my hair rebonded again. I visited Heaven's Beauty Salon & Spa (Quirino Highway, Sangandaan branch). My elder sister also got her hair rebonded in that salon and she is getting good results. Not only good results but also results in a cheap price. The salon is well maintained. The surroundings look more nicer than most cheap salons. Cosmopolitan has more branches than Heaven's but Heaven's (Novaliches branch) has a bigger space.
I know the picture quality sucked. I used my Ericsson cellphone. I cannot capture the salon's front and also the sign board because it is too bright outside and the phone has no zoom feature.
My elder sister availed rebond w/ permanent cellophane for 1300.
Darn it! I didn't reach their promo period so I got Package 2 - hair rebond w/ permanent cellophane and haircut for P1227.
I ate first at Jollibee. Then, I went to Heaven's at 9am. I was the first customer that day. They got many customers. Majority of them will have hair rebond treatments, foot spa and pedicure because they availed the P1400 package. The salon has a security guard. Most of the staff are male. There are only 4 females including the receptionist. I expect that the two gays will be in the hair cut service but for my mistake, they are in the spa service.
My treatment was finished at 3pm. The salon closes at midnight.
Hair rebonding here costs 750. If w/ permanent cellophane, it costs 1185.
Their 1400 hair rebond package has foot spa, power dose, keratin and other treatments included.
My younger sister also went this morning to get her hair rebonded.
