Before I left for my Singapore trip last month, I had a quick trim & a protein treatment at a local salon. Due to the lack of time, I wasn't able to have a new color set into my hair. Needless to say, my hair looked terrible and I had to bear with it. It has been a long time since I last had my hair colored so I was really itching for a change. While in Singapore I saw an ad posted by my "twin" & close friend Shanne regarding a new salon back home. I decided to give it a shot...
So yesterday, at around 11 in the morning, I stopped by R Style Salon located along Pilar Street, Corner Villalobos, Zambaonga City. The salon is owned and managed by Shanne's close friend Roland & his family (Mallarez-Khalaf). The salon is a cozy little nook in the corner and is located along a very convenient spot in town with the bustling of several other shops nearby. After you get yourself pampered, you can simply take a 5 minute walk towards several shopping malls in the vicinity! Now that's what I call convenient...

As you can see in the photo above, my hair was a disaster prior to my "hair pampering" session at RStyle salon... When I stepped into the salon with Shanne, we were greeted by the friendly staff & Roland. I then told them that I wanted to get a haircut & coloring for my hair and asked what shades/colors were available. I was handed a rather large color display and we went through the different color selections till I found a color I liked... I was initially planning to do an ombre-style but was too afraid to subject my already unhealthy hair to bleaching to I ended up with a shade under the "natural" category called light blonde. Ironically, it really didn't look blonde on the color board nor did it look blonde in real life but it was the color I wanted to go for. It's a very light brown-ish red that really brings out the "fairness" (or what's left of it) of my skin. Later on, I got a lot of compliments saying my hair made me look a lot more "meztiza"! *blushes*
After the initial wash & half blow dry, the coloring dye was applied onto my hair in sections. I'll admit I panicked a little once the dye (cream form) started setting in because my scalp started to tingle. It was a sensation I wasn't accustomed to so I asked it it were normal and apparently it was. It can be a little uncomfortable to some but the the staff beautician, Izah Mae, gently massaged my scalp to ease away the tingling sensation & my nervousness...
After a couple of minutes, the dye was rinsed out of my hair and the treatment was applied. Honestly I don't recall the name of the treatment but it made my hair really smooth & silk plus it smelled divine! At the end of the treatment, I was given a good blow dry and a lil bit of styling went into my hair then I was all set.
I liked my whole RStyle experience and paid P2600 for everything, including a huge tub of Cynos hair mask which I consider a very nice investment on my new journey to healthier hair. I plan to go back to RStyle salon very soon to try out some other services they offer there.
