Hair Advice

Postby Nocturne » Mon, 22 Aug 2005 2:22 pm

Hi, I currently live in Australia and planning next month to have a holiday in Singapore. I'm tossing up between having my hair done in Singapore or here in Australia - so I was wondering if someone could help me?

I have long (right down my back) thin, frizzy hair. I've been trying my whole life to try and tame it - either by using the ceramic straightening irons or blow-drying (tried to do it chemically once - was a most painful experience AND I STILL had to blow-dry after all that :( )

I don't like the wet look or dead straight hair that doesn't move (like the spiky look - hope you know what I mean, hehe.) I just want normal straight, flowing (maybe a bit of bounce) hair..

Now I've heard of this rebonding technique - but I have no idea where to go? Also, whether the service in Singapore is better than here in Australia (since it seems not many know of it here)? And how long the process would take? If it's painful etc…

So if anyone has any advice, I'd really appreciate it - thankyou. :)

Rebonding will take you abt 4-5 hours and that's not including treating your hair (which is usually highly recommended to strengthen the hair) so be very prepared to spend half a day at the saloon. It is a painless procedure so don't worry abt it. Lot of patience is required though. You should be looking to pay 200-350 singapore dollars. As for should you do it here or back home, I say give it a shot here. Not becasue it is better than Aust but would be nice to go back with a new hairdo. Try Fox saloon at Shaw Centre, Orchard (#04-01).

Thankyou both for your help :) I do have a few more questions though?

A co-worker had her hair rebonded in indonesia - her hair is now dead straight and she loves it - but I don't since it doesn't move anymore...not all rebonding turns out that way, right?

Also, this 'before' treatment - how/when is this supposed to be before the actual rebonding? Like: even if I go to singapore - because my hair hasn't had a prior treatment, it can't be worked on? Or does it need to be done in the salong just before the rebonding?

Lol, sorry for the questions...just trying to get my facts straight :)
