I often waste my time surfing internet to find out the goodies that I can get from internet (ahem ahem... i know i know i am very kiasu :P) And one day I stumble upon a website sharing about something FOC from Kerastase. (KERASTASE??? Is it Kerastase?)
Without second thought, I click to the Kerastase Link posted on that page (sorry, i forgot to keep track where i got it). As usual, you need to fill in the form and the usual questionnaire before you can click the "submit" button. Nothing is free rite? Okay, so i patiently completed the form and click submit. But what came out was... "We have received your information, the voucher will be sent to you in 14/30days" Sianzz, I thought there would be an online voucher or something. So what to do, wait at the post box la.
Day 1 - No news
Day 2 - No news
Day 3 - Not so fast right? They need to process it backend what...
Day ???? Until i totally forgot about it and One night when I check the letter box, I saw a grey colour greeting card size envelope. Ha? I thought, raya season greeting card is green colour? What is this card about? Then I saw the Kerastase logo!! Ohh??? is this something I've been waiting for?
Bingo!!! I got that voucher!!! But wait, is this totally FOC? So I call up one of the Saloon and check with them... Okay, No FREE lunch, I need to pay the price of a wash & blow which ranges from RM25-30 (that's the price you gotta pay for at "high class" saloon la~ I was tempted to try out at centro..... but I think their wash and blow would be more than the price quoted?)
Since I gotta pay the price for hair wash, I might as well fully utilise it rite? So I waited till 911 to use the voucher. (This has no relation to the 911 in States) just that I need to attend a wedding function fr CY side.
Fast forward to 911, after a sumptious BKT brunch at Klang, it's almost time for the treatment. It was a gloomy day.
As soon as I reached the Saloon, I though, waow, it’s kinda empty on Sunday afternoon ya? Anyway, I told the guy I made an appointment to redeem the Kerastase treatment and he said okay and lead me to the chair…. Everything seems fine? Then he went to take out a bottle of Kerastase serum and told me this serum is to strengthen my hair. Okay then, let’s proceed
I started with shampooing my hair to clear all the dirt away. The shampoo is a quiet guy I suppose? Coz he didn’t try to strike a conversation with me, and me being a bit lazy (and scared if I talk too much, later he will hard sell me any additional service :P ) we stayed rather quiet over the whole shampooing process, which I like it very much, coz I can relax and read over some gossip tabloids.
After the shampooing process I was lead back to the chair and that guy had a tough time trying to comb my all tangled up hair!! (That’s due to the fact that they didn’t put any conditioner during the rinsing? Which is on purpose?) after that, he sectioned my hair started spraying the serum onto a small section and started rubbing the hair….. Once it’s done, he gave me a quick hair massage before putting me on the “steam machine”, there after he went to serve another customer.
Once the steaming is done, another girl came to serve me and rinse off my hair. There after the girl put on the Oleo Relax – Slim to my hair any she recommended that I should use this so that the hair is not so frizzy and will be more manageable. Got sell a bit, but not hard sell, which I find them good!!! And I like the hair blow that the girl gave me which a small curl at the end of the hair.
In total, I paid RM28 for the hair wash & blow.
Is this an unforgettable experience? I wouldn’t say it’s an unforgettable but definitely a pampering session. My hair feels soft & supple and Definitely more shinny!! I am definitely saving some moolah for the pampering session!!
