Finally! I'm got my long coveted digital perm.
I recently discovered Azta Salon Katipunan, through word of mouth (my friend Ato) and Facebook. They have very reasonable prices and I reckoned they were very accommodating and made each experience a personal one based on customers’ comments on their wall.
They offer digital perm for as low as php3000â€¦ plus with their current 15% off on weekdays promo, I scored my treatment at php2550. That's more than half off from the total rip off that is Toney and Jackey.
Just a little segue, I visited tony & Jackey a year ago and had my hair assessed. They had a sign that says ...3000 any length on Digital Perm“.
So I was there, and the Korean stylist was evaluating my hair,
...7000“ he quipped. And I was like, ...7000? Wtf it says 3000 on your sign“.
...Only 3000 for virgin hair, no rebond no color“
...My hair is virgin. I had it colored 4 years ago, and I'm pretty sure, since I don't see the bluish-black color of it has grown out since I've had several haircuts in the past 4 years… so technically the hair on my head now is virgin, right?“
...Your hair rebonded and brown“
...No its not, It's just straight and that's the real hair color, that's called muro-ami color!“
...7000“ he said ending the conversation
What the hell, anyway long story short. I didn't get it done there. Sucks to be implied to as a liar! Why would I lie about getting treatments on my hair??
Anyway, I got my digital perm at Azta which is a totally awesome salon. Edwin the assistant was the best really. Very courteous and he's just fierce. He and Cris (stylist) were great, always asking if I were okay and that. They both did a fabulous job. I haven't washed my hair yet so I don't know how it will turn out post shampoo, but I'll sure be updating this blog!
I've documented the whole process. Enjoy!
I showed them the picture of the hair I wanted.
Cris (stylist) and Edwin (his assistant) informed me that I'd have to get tighter curls first, since it will loosen after a while.
After shampoo, Cris layered my hair as he said it will emphasize the curls.
being blow-dried by Edwin
After that, Edwin applied this solution to my hairâ€¦ Cris said to have it on for 20 minutes. It ended up staying on my hair for 35 minutes since my hair was still “resistant” after 20mins
My hair was then rinsed and rolled into the barrels.
The little white cushion thingies were to protect the scalp from the heat. Its heavy! the barrels were then attached to the wires that would heat them up.
After about 10-20 minutes, I think, they removed one roller to see if my hair was curly yet. It was, so with the rollers on, another solution was applied. That pan thingy is obviously there for the solution to drip on.
Getting blow dried after the solution was rinsed off my hair. Notice the curly tendrils of hair that is now visible. Was really getting super excited at this point!
Edwin twirled my hair into sections and placed the heap of it in a wide mouth thingy hair dryer. Didn’t dry it all the way dry.
That’s Cris styling my bangs and putting on finishing touches.
Now that’s me when I got home and my hair was totally dry! love it!
now here’s the before and after pic!
