About 5 years ago I was introduced to Japanese straightening and ever since than I can't live without it. About every 5-6 months I spend a whole day at the salon and get my hair processed and the final hair is amazingly shinny, sleek and straight. So today is that day...I am spending a whole day (9am-7pm) at the Salon Oggi with the hair master @tommyfl who truly does wonders to my hair. Since I know that I will be here all day, I bring my coffee, breakfast, lunch and snack with me. @tommyfl is very good at keeping me well fed, but since I am trying to make better food choices, I brought my breakfast (yogurt) and snack, but didn't have energy to make lunch so I will be ordering something delicious later.
Every time I come here I feel like I am moving in for a day, as I bring all of my magazines, movies and books. So today I will be reading "Bon Apetit, Clean Eating, Martha Stewart Living, Body & Soul, Marie Claire and Vogue". It's only 11am and I am finished with Bon Apetit and found some amazing recipes for the chef to test this summer. More about the recipes a little later.
So the process...well, it's long and exhausting but it's nothing compared to what comes after it's all done today. The most important part - I can NOT sweat or get my hair wet or keep it in the pony tail or behind my ears for 3 days. I have a special silk pillow case so my hair doesn't creases, and I sleep with 60F in the house and a fan on just so I wouldn't sweat or by any chance ruin my hair. So pretty much until Tuesday, I will be a slave of my own hair. And the reason I make myself go through this process is that for 5 months I have perfectly silky, shinny, straight hair that needs no work - I shower and brush my hair and it looks perfect.
Update I: The first step in the process is washing the hair and protecting the scalp (9am-10am)
