Hair Manicure....What????!!!???

I have heard about manicure, pedicures...whatever cure! But I was never familiarized with the term hair manicure!

I seldom go to the salon to have my hair done, I would probably go to a salon just for a quick hair cut/trim. I think I have been complaining so much about being tired and wanting to relax. I honestly did! I had a good massage with my mom on Friday night and I can't help but want to complete the "relaxation" process. This time I wanted to pamper not only my body, but my hair! I've been doing a self-pamper for months now and I think it's time I sit back and relax and let the professionals do it!

I had my hair done at the Korean Salon called Tony & Jackey. I am proud to say that I am one of those first few customers who had my hair cut done by Mr. Tony, the Sr. Hair Stylist, when they weren't that famous yet. But since the hit Korean movie "My Girl" was re-shoot by Filipino actors/actresses and had their make-over done in this salon. The salon was jam packed! When I say jam packed, people are waiting for 3-4 hours for their turn!

I am so happy I am a Girl Scout! I gave them a call to schedule for a hair appointment and I had my turn without problems at all!!!

So here goes my newly "trimmed" and manicured hair with color (I believe Brown). They've used Korean product for the hair manicure.





** sorry, no make-up, it's already around 11 something PM when this shot was taken

I think hair manicure is similar to cellophane or whatever hair treatment with different names they use. All they did was apply this brown colored cream (as I chose the color brown) and massage it onto my hair and leave it for approx 30 minutes. That's just it! LOL Of course they've used this machine thingy that emits steam. Blow dried my hair and had it trimmed!

That simple! But overall, I love the texture of my hair and it is shinier!!!

But if you want to save up?
Again, just do it at home!
I guess I am just too lazy the past few days!
(excuses...i know!)

  8. thanks. i'm loving the iphone cover. you always make me hungry on your page! i'm just like you, i don't drink much soda. i also tend to eat healthy. it's not that i don't like fatty food, but i always tend to choose healthy stuff. when i'm at home, i make healthy stuff but if i'm in a rush, i'll get fast food. but for the most part, i buy healthy stuff at the store! i need to watch what i eat, cause i feel bloated. i've been eating way too many pickles! i love them! lol. but it makes me bloated so no more!

  12. awww thanks ladies! that is so sweet!!!!

    Liz, to answer your question, YES Hair manicure is just like HOT OIL but it has colors on it so it looks natural on you! I don't know if it's the same as hot oil but I think it's closer to "cellophane" treatment (that's how they call it not because they use cellophane but because the shine will be like cellophane)

  16. I am honestly quite surprised with the effect as well! Since I didn't get serious about this hair manicure thing! I Think one thing as well is that they left it longer than the usual, as they are fully booked and too many clients! That's why my hair was "overcooked" with the cream! Lol and I think it helps?

    Let's all treat our hair !!! I felt bad for not taking care of my hair !!!
