Last Saturday Roxanne accompanied me to the salon. I decided to have my hair trimmed (again) and this time I want it really short (again).
Like this short.
So, Roxy came with me. While we were there she convinced me to have Brazilian blow dry. According to her my hair is so dry.
“what’s wrong with your hair? It’s so dry. You need to have a Brazilian blow dry. Try it. You’ll love it.”
I really didn’t want to have Brazilian blow dry done because I was scared it might look like I had my hair rebonded. Which I don’t like. I’m not into super straight hair, I like the texturized look. In fact I have all kinds of texturizing spray because I loved textured hair.
But Roxy kept on telling me (ang kulit, sa totoo lang. lol) and I gave in.
I already know why my hair became so dry. Ever since Rhea (laundry girl who use to do my hair) left, Ruby (housegirl) has been ironing my hair. And Ruby destroyed my hair. Ruby has a heavy hand and every time she irons my hair she pulls it too much and too tight.
When Ruby started to do my hair, I noticed that my hair (especially at the tips) became sooo dry. And that is why I decided to cut my hair short again.
I think I have not mentioned here that Rhea came back to us about 2 weeks ago. Apparently things between her and Clarence didn’t work (lol). That’s why she’s back.
Anyway, before I’ll turn over my hair back to her, I decided to cut it really short to get rid of the dry tips.
After Salve (hairstylist and owner of Ones Salon) cut my hair, they began the long Brazilian blow dry process.
2 hours into the process I couldn’t stand it anymore. I hate staying too long in the salon. That is why I have my nails done at home and my roots done at home.
But Roxanne said “tiis ganda.” So, I sat it out. 5 long hours. My first time to stay in salon that long.
I didn’t care anymore how my hair looked. I just wanted to get out of there and go home. When we were done we grabbed a quick dinner and went home. I was sooo tired the minute I got home. I did not care how my hair look anymore.
When I woke up the following morning I look at myself in the mirror and I screamed.
My hair was so short and so straight. I hated it. I called Roxanne and started to blame her. But she promised me it’s gonna get better in the next few days.
“You’re going to get your volume back. Don’t worry about it. Give it time.”
I was so angry at myself why I allowed this to happen. I wanted my dry hair back.
Sure, it was smooth. In fact very shiny and smooth. But that’s not the way I like it. I want texture and a little volume.
Well, there is nothing I can do anymore.
I was not allowed to wet/shampoo my hair for 2 days.
Now I know what it feels like when they say ‘grin and bear it’. Because that’s what I have been doing the last few days.
