Hair straightening/rebonding question

Postby paast10 » Sun, 23 Sep 2007 7:47 pm

I got my hair straightened for the 3rd time in 4 years recently. I am new to Singapore and found on another forum somewhere that Jean Yip was recommended. :x Well, they ruined my hair extremely!!!!!! The hair was not straightened much at all and when I went back in 3 days later after washing, they said they would redo it. That sounded really damaging for my hair but they said they would add conditioner to the ends to prevent damage. Well, it is still not straight at all - more wavy now when I try to blow dry it straight than before I got it straightened!!!! The waves are "locked in" now. Only thing good that happened is my hair is not frizzy anymore. But having had this done twice before, I know my hair is ruined and I cannot get it restraightened for many many months.
Can anyone recommend a good salon treatment for my hair?? It is extremely damaged. I dont want to go to a very expensive place - just wondered if anyone has had any good experiences with a good deep conditioning type treatment at a salon. Thanks!

Did my rebonding in alot of places! Best places is Hair Matters at the Adelphi.

Try not to go Jean Yip - their standards are dropping. And I hate it there after I trim my hair.
1) Can't speak good english
2) Do not understand simple english eg: do not trim it too short
3) Just simply proud and think they know what they are doing...

In the end, I scream at the counter like a mad woman for them to realised that they are D.U.M.B

I did my rebonding at a small salon in Veerasamy Road called Papillon. They do it very well, and you can tell it's popular with other ladies cos there will be about 7 or 8 people at one time, all rebonding hair.. so have to make appointment first! My hair is about halfway down my back, and it only cost $120 to rebond and cut (though the haircut is only so-so). Everyone complimented on how nice the rebonding was. I used to be scared of going for rebonding cos the previous place I went to had bad service when ironing, and it always hurt, but here I don't have such worries. Let me know if you want to give it a try and I will pm you the number :)

Thanks for the replies ladies. I want to get it redone in December if my hair can handle it. Having it done twice in August has made my hair pretty fragile. I leave Singapore in december so will have to see if I can do it then.

Hi, their number is 62953323, but I have forgotten the exact address, only remember it in Veerasamy Road. You can call and ask for directions when you make your appointment though :) Do note they are closed on Sundays :)

And don't wash your hair before you go, because they will wash it like 20 times in the process in order to make sure the chemicals don't stay in your scalp. Haha. My scalp felt a bit raw by the end of it, but was well worth it :)

very good advice not to wash hair. The hair is washed many times during the whole process - it takes about 3-4 hours total to get it done.
