It’s exactly been one week since I had my hair rebonded last Saturday at Tony and Jackey Salon in Festival Mall, Alabang.
My sister saw that they were having a summer long promo, with rebond prices for as low as P1,500 for any length! Considering that Tony and Jackey is a reputable salon, that deal looked really good. (Or so we thought)
When we got there, however, we weren’t allowed to get the P1,500 Aqua Rebond promo. HARUMPH!
They saw that my hair had recently undergone coloring and Aqua Rebond might damage my already damaged hair (Yes, they said that). They suggested I should get the L’Oreal Extenso Rebond instead for P3,000. (Hmm, sige na nga.) They also suggested (strongly) that I get the P1,000 Keratin Treatment with Haircut since my hair is SO dry. (Ma’am, ang dry talaga ng hair nyo!)
(At this point, I couldn’t help raising my eyebrows already. Come on, my hair isn’t THAT BAD!)
My sister’s hair, on the other hand, is all natural (virgin, untouched hair) but she also wasn’t allowed to get the P1,500 rebond because her hair strands were too thin. (Sige na nga, ulit…)
Fine, so much for the P1,500 promo. But since my sister and I would prefer to pay more than have our hair ruined, we just went ahead with the L’Oreal Extenso Rebond for P3,000. Wahaha, cheapo!
How my hair turned out
When I think about it, I don’t really need to rebond my hair since I have naturally straight hair. But rebonding helps me with growing out my hair especially during the awkward length. I also hate getting the frizzies and I’m too lazy to use anti-frizz hair products. So rebonding is the convenient way for lazy ol’ me to grow out my hair.
If I don’t rebond, I get really annoyed with bad hair days and end up chopping my hair. So much for growing it out.
Will I go back to Tony and Jackey?
To be honest, I’m not that pleased with my Tony and Jackey experience for the following reasons:
- They’re too hard sell, bordering on pushy. It’s like they’re all over your face suggesting this and that treatment, it’s actually quite overwhelming and intimidating. I went there for the P1,500 promo, obviously I’m trying to be frugal. And then they suggested that I go get the Volumizing Rebond package for P6,000? Uhhhhm.
- I found the stylists working there a bit tactless. Instead of saying “damaged hair”, they could have said something like, “chemically treated.” They didn’t have to say over and over that my hair was soooooooooooooooooo dry. After the rebond and cut, my stylist actually “Tsk!”-ed, shook her head and said something like, “Sayang, you should have had the Volumizing Rebond done.” Thanks ha, you just made me feel ugly.
- I felt like the people there were money hungry. I had 4 people attending me! Two stylists and two assistants. That meant a whole lot of tips. I wish they informed me first that they would assign extra people. I had a budget, you know.
I didn’t know if it was because I was hungry, but I was pretty cranky by the time they were done. I just wanted to pay and leave.
HOWEVER. I would want to go back again to try their hair cut. Since I was their for almost 4 hours, I saw a lot of people come and go. And every person who left, left with a really good hair cut! Or maybe for a digital perm. Oh, and my rebond turned out okay, anyway.
So maybe, just maybe, I’ll go back there sometime in the future.
But for now, I’m sticking with my regular stylist, Jenny of Jay Feliciano Salon for my hair pampering and needs.
