Hair Makeover at Entice

Let me start off this post by saying that my hair has been through A LOT in life. My mom used to own a salon which let me discover the wonders (and some failures) of hair treatments and other vainglorious girl indulgences.

My first ever hair treatment was a RELAX — a straightening method that doesn’t involve the dreaded bringer of wispiness, the flat iron, but rather lots and lots of blowdrying to achieve a volumized effect. After a year or two when the relaxed hair had grown out, I got a REBOND (L’oreal Xtenso) which started the scary regrowths that produced obvious creases in my hair. Because of this, I had to always get it re-rebonded two years after or so. I probably underwent rebond a maximum of four times in 8 years till my mom advised me to stop killing my hair.
Regarding COLOR, I have had my hair colored since I was in 3rd or 4th year high school, I can’t exactly recall. I have never tried cellophane or highlights though, just full permanent dyes.

It’s been how many years since I started my love/hate affair with hair treatments and above is a testament to how abused my crowning glory is already. Just last March however, I got a Keratherapy treatment which tamed my hair down for quite a few months but then now it’s back to its used and abused state.

Anyway, since getting pregnant, I wasn’t able to do any hair treatments as I was afraid of the effects on my darling baby girl. However, after consulting my OB Gyn, she said that I should just wait out until after the first trimester to do treatments as precaution. Also, she suggested an ammonia-free colorant as further precaution when I do decide to get any treatment.
I went to a relatively new salon ENTICE (nope, this is not a sponsored post!) at Ortigas. Being a patron of Emphasis Salon for years, this was a big decision for me. I’ve read good reviews about their creative director, Korean hairstylist William Wong so I booked a session with him. He evaluated my hair and suggested I get highlights — which as mentioned above, I have never tried before. I agreed to do so with a personal request of them not looking too contrasty with my base color, which I wanted to change into a darker chocolate brown, not reddish-mahogany-auburn color that I already had.

Before this whole process, William also offered to cut my dry and splitting ends, as well as fix the shape of my hair before the treatment — for free! I was hesitant at first because I never have my hair cut by anyone else but my stylist in Emphasis, Ben. But I also felt inclined to since I wanted to see how William does his ever famous techniques on cutting hair. So, I gave in. I like how he thinned my hair out without making it too wispy (which I absolutely hate). My hair felt lighter and looked healthier without the ugly split and dry ends plaguing it.

After a span of 4 and a half hours, let me share with you the finished product. This was not ironed nor blow dried in style, as we are used to after getting our hair done at a salon which makes us feel ever so satisfied only to feel disappointed once we’ve showered. After 4.5 hours sitting on that chair waiting for results, I requested to have my hair just AIR DRIED meaning finger dried. And ta-da! I can’t be any more satisfied with my hair color. I pictured it lighter but then again, I didn’t want to be shockingly blonde or else I would have cried.

    I love your hair <3 i became a fan of dyeing my hair back in 2010 after college. My mom too does my hair too though she doesn't have a salon. Entice hmmm i think it's expensive hahaha but great hair though!

    Seriously, I didn’t know anything about the maximum times our hair should be rebonded. Anyway, I so love the result. Based on the pictures, your hair looks healthier! As if it was blow dried.

  3. October 25, 2012 / 4:54 pm

    I think your hair looks great, I love how he fixed your hair cut, it look lovely! xx

    Great result for a “not-ironed” hair! You look more gorgeous! 🙂

    Hey Shari (:
    Thanks for your nice comment!
    I only use 2 (yes, you read it right, 2) different brushes for applying my eye makeup! A simple one to dab the colors on and one fro blending. I wanna buy a few more brushes this year! I hope, this answer isn’t disappointing for you…haha 😀
    Any suggestions for brushes?

    Your hair color looks great! So natural and perfect for your skin tone <3 I'm also relaxing my hair but at afro hair salon, because I have afro hair. I want straight hair, so I'm doing this for years. I'm very satisfied with the results but you have to have the right hair dresser to achieve a nice result!
    Your hair now look great and healthy.

    Your hair looks so pretty and long! It came out great. I’ve been wanting to dye it a darker chestnut color for the fall season, but I think I might just do a major chop! Still deciding.

    Haha those pictures of you during the process are cute! And your hair turned out great–the highlights aren’t too harsh either!
    I wish I could’ve tried the salons in Manila, I know there’s a lot more “hidden gems” salons there than in Cebu.

    Hello!! you look so nice on your pics! Oh I know what you mean by abused hair. My hair is pretty much abused. Even more abused when I went to the Philippines and went swimming almost everyday. The chlorine pretty much lightened and well damaged my hair. I’m still recovering. Blah! Anyway, wow, you’re a mom!! young mom 😀 that’s nice.. I think I want to get pregnant soon. Still looking for a good OB around our area before we start planning 🙂 Keep in touch!!!

    Anyway, you finally got your hair treated and colored. I remember you’re kind of complaining about it few entries back. The color looks good in you! Very pretty preggy!

    Love your hair!!:) Good job in maintaining it:)

  40. October 28, 2012 / 6:01 am

    looks awesome after the treatment and naturally dried, my hair now takes two hours to naturally air dry with aircon on full blast! I love how my hair naturally when long stays relatively straight with waves like yours. I used to rebond when I was younger teen but I’ve stopped now for more than 4 years, I think we should just try to maintain our normal hair textures, looks so much better over time!

  41. October 28, 2012 / 7:15 am

    nice post!
    come by and lets fllw each other if you love to do:)

    Hi Shari, thanks for visiting my blog and following you back. And need I say more? This hair colour is awesome!!~ I’m so paranoid about getting any hair treatment or hair dye now that I am preggie too. Did do a haircut and treatment yesterday but didn’t colour it at all. You’re making me think twice! Haha. Be in touch again and can’t wait to see pics of your bb girl! =)

  43. October 29, 2012 / 6:37 pm

    I love the highlights. They frame and light up your face.

    I just found your blog and am now following. Lots of fun and interesting stuff here.
