OKAAAAAAAY, so where do I begin? One weekend about two weeks ago, in search of a new camera, I decided to take a walk and explore my new city. I ended up in Seomyeon where I had gone many times but had never noticed certain places. So I walked into a Salon, that looked like I stepped out of Busan and onto 5th Ave, where I was told 80,000 won for a wash and curl (about 73 US$) :::NEXT:::. So I walked a little further and two Korean chicks popped their heads out of a small salon and waived me in. I reluctantly went inside.
I noticed that there were several mannequins with braids, corn rolls and Nubian knots so I thought I might have found an “ok” place. I figured I would ask a few questions and make an appointment for a later date then finish looking for a camera. But when I was told that a wash and set was only 10,000 won ($8 US) I thought “hey might as well try it now.”
Ok so basically everything from this point on is a disaster so rather than type it all out (which is boring) I will bullet all the failures;
*They washed my hair ONE TIME (ummmm absolutely no suds)
*Washed out the conditioner as soon as it hit my hair :(
*THEE WORST PART was the blow dry, My hair is SUPER thick w/or w/out relaxer and MUST be dried WELL. Two Korean chics got on each side of me and used a toothless blow dryer while they shook my hair dry with their hands (if you can picture this). This took about 35 mins bc I had to keep saying its wet bc my roots were SOAKING wet. Dry ends wet roots :(
*Once my hair was finally dry TWO different women began to flat iron my hair NOT from the root but just about a little over half of the way down. So by the time they were done I had straight ends and Don King roots. DISASTER!
Honestly this post does this experience no justice. I should have just kept it moving :( I didn’t have a camera to take a picture of the hot mess that was my hair but maybe from the above description and the picture below you can imagine how I was looking on the way home. HAHA! Oh well, it was def an experience :-)
