Last Saturday, since we were in Ortigas area to watch transformers, we thought of visiting BENEFITS SALON again. I made a feature about Benefits salon before as I was invited there when it was re-branded and had a new look. http://www.pusangkalye.net/2011/01/benefits-salon-eastwood-new-year.html . And since we heard that there's a "hot item" in the salon these days, we thought of checking it out. I am referring to KERATIN HAIR TREATMENT.
So we reserved our movie tickets in Ortigas and took the taxi to Eastwood straight to the salon to try it out. Keratin Hair treatment is especially designed for damaged hair. After all, keratin is the protein which makes our hair shiny and smooth. Because of stress, pollution and wrong use and choice of hair chemicals, our hair gets damaged. Even the scalp suffers as a result. What keratin treatment does it that it gives nutrition back to your hair.
It's as easy as 1-2-3.Although you have to wait for an hour or more for the keratin to have full effect on your hair. The good part of the waiting is, they have in-house masseurs who will give you soothing back massage for 10-15 minutes so that the wait will be as relaxing as ever. You can also check your email or facebook your friends as they offer free wifi in the salon.
While having Keratin Hair Treatment, I was talking to my hair stylist and he noticed that I have thick eyebrows. He said if I have it threaded, it would highlight its shape and therefore highlight it. I have never tried plucking my eyebrows before and I guess the method, threading, which is foreign to me got me say I wanna try it. For 150 pesos, I said go, "let's do it".
It kinda hurts,for somebody like me who is very low tolerant on paint, but I kinda enjoyed it. Weird. Until now , I am still contemplating weather it was a good decision or not, for me at least coz my wife also had her threading and she likes it. In my case, I am not used to it. I heard that in japan, guys usually pluck or thread their hair, but it is not something that many people do here.
At the end of the end, it's the effect on your appearance that counts. If you think it compliments your looks, well and good. In my case, not bad, except it made me look more mataray. I am snobbish in person and this will give me a more sinister image.hahaha
I decided to had my hair trimmed later on. They don't use razors in benefits when trimming hair. It's scissors all the way. That's what I like. Razors are for the lazy barbers.ooops.sorry. Plus, in here, you are sure that your hairstylists are well experience. Most of them service no less than the tv stars in the country.
