Shiseido Love

Remember my previous post on Simba Hair? Well, my hair had enough of my indulgences and decided to protest big time! Hence, the texture was rough like nylon strings, my hairbrush had difficulty sliding, my shampoo wailed when it had to work harder to produce foams, and most of all I felt like I have been living inside a sinkhole for quite sometime since the curls are messy and hard to style! Hence, I decided to do something about it! Even before I thought of "doing something" I thought that by washing, moosing, waxing and self-treatment could save my hair! Despite of these two facts 1. self-treatment package and 2. going home (in December!!! How silly!) to chop off all the ugliness, I finally decided to rebel against my self-financial crisis!

"I am broke but I am going to Qi Shiseido for treatments and snips!!!"

Some of you Bangkokians guessed it already did you?? Hahahaha!



Yes! The Shiseido Qi saloon that most of us will mention first every time someone confesses to have gone to a saloon in Emporium, since the location is right up the entrance from the BTS.

I was reluctant at first but figured that I got fed up of cheap treatments full of promises only wanting you to come back the following weeks or months Simba knows!

So last Thursday (a week ago) I decided to just put on a hi-so face and went in although God knows I'm out of pocket!

One thing about hi-so saloons, you need to book in advance as to when they are available and hence will put you in schedule after you make a pick on whether you want an dabbler or a pro to do the style for you! I was scheduled for 7pm and was told would be the last customer of the day! Whew!

7pm it was and I came close to 7:30pm since hey! You know Bangkok traffic and heck if it wasn't for my Masterguide uniform I would've arrived on time! Thank goodness the guy who was suppose to be my stylist and his nosy assistant was more than willing to do it for me and guess what? Last customer equals to having the whole stage to myself! After the mini chat with this unknown G or S good looking stylist, he went against my wish of wanting a big snip and instead introduced me to what he claimed to be the best solution: Program Solution followed by small snips! I jumped out of my seat when he mentioned the involvement of 9 products starting with hair detox followed by waxing, shampooing, steaming, grooming...

As it was my first time hearing of a hair detox, first thing crossed my mind was body detox that somehow assimilate with the word "cleanse." Oh I tell you, if only you knew what I was thinking about this whole detox process at that moment! LOL! But hey, it was nothing like what I imagined. Mr. GL and Ms Nosy actually started by taking several strands of my hair at a time and wet with some solutions and literally "cleanse" the hair with their hands. How pampering was that?? Later these followed:

wash...

applied another solution...

wash...

to another solution...

wash...

trimming...

to some sort of wax...

steam...

shampoo...

styling...

back to look like a cute poodle again...with more fluff!

I was just about to snore and had to get up and wash again. Anyhow they did to my hair, I didn't complain since I made sure I prayed 9 times as soon as the treatment started! The moment Mr GL handed me the oval mirror to get the 4D view, I made sure I took a good look on those tamed-again yet soft fluff and cherished all those swanky 2 hours moment where I had the chance to fiddle some chic mags, sit on a modish seat, make good conversation, and all that tony!

Not sure when is the next time...:(

As to make it more memorable *blush*,

"Could you recommend me shampoos and conditioners?"

Mr. GL quickly handed me these:



which costs 690B and 520B respectively.

I walked out with a free membership card, a bag of Shiseido purchase, 3000+B poorer and with a enormous smile of satisfaction!



As the advertisement puts it in words back in Malaysia...

"Rambutku tampak lebih bermaya, lebih menawan!"

LOL!

I told you that you should go straight to Seshido earlier.

Aims, if that is your hair from the back, it was totally worth the $$$$
