“I need hair cut, can we go to a salon?” I said to my husband.
“Instead of cutting your hair, why don’t you curl it?” said he.
“No way!” I claimed.
“Just try to have a different look.”
“You’re not happy with my look?” my eyes goggled.
“I’m happy, but I want you to make me happy by having a different look.” His voice raised higher.
*An argument I had with my husband in the car.
I was sort of satisfied with the look I had, no need to change anything since it would remain the same. All years I spent, I have never done anything to my hair. No dye. No smoothing. No rebounding. No curling. I was just too scared that it might disappoint me as hell. To end the argument, we finally decided to consult the hair beautician first.
Finally as we arrived at the salon, we both sat and began to consult the hair expert about hair curling. The woman who we encountered suggested me to have Digital Curly that will last for six month; she also emphasized that it would add the volume of my hair. I asked about the price and when she mentioned the price, it shocked me to death (I’d rather keep it as a secret, okay?). I looked at my husband, wanting his response. “Just try that” he said. What I worried was not about changing my look but the PRICE. “Don’t worry about the price” said my husband as if he could read my mind. So I finally decided to have this Digital Curly.
This Digital Curly needs a three-hour process. Quite boring yet interesting. Allow me to share it with you.
Step 1: Cream Applied
After washing my hair, particular cream was applied all over my hair. The lady in-charge told me that the cream is the medicine to curl the hair. I had to wait for about an hour until it perfectly seeped into the hair.
Step 2: Hair Rolled
An hour passed, the lady in-charge washed away the cream without a shampoo. Later she hair-blown my hair a bit to drain the water. Afterward, she parted my hair into several clusters; each of the cluster was rolled with tissue and black plastic hair rolls.
Step 3: Digital-Curling Machine applied
Once all the clusters were rolled, a scary-looking machine was dragged by the lady in-charge to capture and embrace each cluster; it looks like a giant octopus, waiting to torture me. This process took about 45 minutes.
Step 4: Liquid Neutralization
Once I was done with the machine, the lady put a neck-shaped bowl around my neck to pour a yellowish liquid that functions as hair neutralization. The lady said it will put more curl shape. The liquid should stay for about 15 minutes before the lady release all the rolls. Another unbearable waiting moments I had to go through.
Step 5: Hair Washed
Fifteen minutes had passed, I had my hair wash. Since it went through lots of process, the lady had to wash my hair several times until she could wear off the slimy part.
Step 6: Hair-blown
At last! the moment to witness the result of this digital curly had come. The lady hair-blown my hair to get into best curly shape. My husband who sat next to me, waiting impatiently to witness ‘whether I look pretty with this new look’ result. Once it was done, Ta-da . . . he giggled. A response that I wasn’t hoping for. As I observed myself in the mirror, I totally had ‘so-not-me’ look, well . . . more like a . . . Tiger-curled lady.
So this is my first look book in 2014, hoping to be inspired with another fancy look in the years to come or probably I’ll just allow my husband to choose the look since it relates to his happiness 😀
