Get it done it’s on special they said. It will make your hair easy to manage they said. No more curly hair they said. It will make your hair look healthy they said. Well guess what, there is a downside!
You’ve decided to grown out your rebounded hair because well basically it ruined the condition ( no surprise there! ) and now it looks like bollocks, what to do?
Yes we can sit here and laugh and tell you we told you, which would be funny but not so helpful so here are your options.
Cut it short to remove 3/4 of the straight bonded ends. This will help but still be a bit annoying.
Keratin the roots to blend it a little. Not ideal but visually a little better.
Blow dry the roots straight until you have enough length to cut the ends off.
No one said it would be easy. Careful with something that sounds too good to be true. Rebonding and straightening in our opinion are possible the worst thing to do to hair!
Well this is not really a secret but some people tend not to understand just like some people think all Indian food is the same, there is a huge difference. Let’s look at them.
This is typically your local place that does everything from waxing you on the chair while your hair is getting blow dried to send someone down the road to pick up your shopping once you arrive 20 min late and is a very casual setting typically a small space. Typically don’t do male clients.
Now whilst in most parts of the world this is a place you grab a drink especially if your in the Wild West lol. However in India this is again a place that will do everything and anything from bleech your brows, straighten your hair and wax your legs all at the same time, why… well it’s all about maximizing turnover I guess. Typical prices, more typical results sprinkled with a little this and that. Don’t specialize in anything just do a little of everything. Do make and female clients kids and will also pick up your lunch, shopping and walk you to the car to hand you the change because your nails are still wet. Don’t worry they too are all about max turnover and they will say good bye each visit shamelessly waiting for there tip. But you can relax in this type of space because they have a tv playing all the annoying shows you hate while the radio or old songs your grandmother listened too whilst your getting your not Instagram worthy hair done.
One “o” missing but is nothing like the above. Will do hair, possible mani pedi but it’s all about hair, no tv only good tunes and professional staff ( typically )they regularly get training, they want training, they understand hair better than most and they love what they do and don’t wait on check out for a tip, they don’t want it. It’s about the work. They do things different, they talk normally and are focused and driven to deliver the best hair you have ever had. No flying nails being clipped off someone’s feet beside you, no waxing being done on some aunties legs beside you and no uncle getting his mani pedi done while he is drinking chai, talking on the phone screaming at his help and eating his lunch all at the same time. Ask them to collect your shopping if they are free they may do it but it’s not there job!
Now I already hear you saying that some salons function like saloons, some salons do the same things as saloons, well they are in fact saloons then.
If your shopping for a place to get your hair done, be it under the local tree, a small room above the pizza shop or the professional space locally understand just like a fruit shop doesn’t sell meat, a tailor doesn’t do car repairs and a furniture seller doesn’t do medical procedures there is a huge difference between the 3. By the way all have a space in the market we just choose to be a salon and not a parlour or a saloon!
