Believe it or not, I’m notorious for not combing my hair. My hairdryer has gathered cobwebs from non-use and my driver shakes his head every time I rush to the car with my hair wet and unkempt. So this year, I decided I wanted to do something with my unruly, limp mane. Two days before my birthday, I went to PARKJUN’s Hair Salon (located at#224 Upper Ground Level of Alabang town Center –above Marks and Spencer).
LENA, the Korean senior hairstylist, took a long time examining my strands. She ran her fingers through it and shook her head. Too dry, uneven dye and remnants of my highlights from last year were still showing. After shampooing my hair, Lena continued her scrutiny. “Mucota!” she said to her assistant. So back to the shampooing area I went.
THE MUCOTA SALON TREATMENT
PARKJUN’S prides itself in using only the best hair products. The MUCOTA HAIR CARE SYSTEM comes from Japan and I tell you, it made a believer out of me! Lena said I needed the treatment before I could have my hair curled, otherwise, my locks will suffer more damage. This 6-step treatment involves : 1. SHAMPOOING with AIRE to remove the dirt from hair and cleanse the scalp 2. APPLICATION of ETHOS to prevent further damage to chemically treated hair 3. APPLICATION of SCENA for hair repair 4. APPLICATION of CALORE for the protection of hair cuticle 5. HONEY TRETAMENT (Light Veil Conditioner) to maintain moisture inside the hair and 6. SHINE SPRAY to protect the hair from heat.
HIGH TECH DIGI-PERM
In Korea, hair styling is a serious profession. The government regulates the mane industry by conducting a state exam and only the best pass and are given licenses. PARKJUN’s caters to a discerning clientele. There is a reason why services are a bit pricey. Nothing is rushed or done hurriedly. (It took the team 5 hours to finish working on my look). The hair specialists take their time examining your hair, explaining what treatment is best and executing the best style for you. I’m so happy with the way my curls turned out. It’s been a little over a week now and I still look like I just out of the salon ! My hair is soft, bouncy and shiny. As for combing , well the good news is that combing is not allowed! Hahaha, All I have to do is air dry my scalp and twirl the end of my hair to keep the curls.
What a cool change indeed!
