I had my hair done yesterday at Fabio Salsa Salon over at Rockwell for my annual permanent blow dry (Yes, it was my birthday the day before - June 24). This treatment lasts me a year because I do have straight hair but not the manageable kind. It's kinda frizzy and the short hairs are curly which are both very annoying. I didn't want to have it rebonded because it's too fake for me. It's way too straight without any volume at all. Permanent blow dry is different because it still has volume but no more frizz and totally manageable.
Of course the first few weeks it would look very straight because of the chemicals but give it a while and you'll see the difference. The procedure took about 2.5 hours which is not that long considering the last time I was there it was around 3 hours.
I love my hair because it's very manageable, shiny and no frizz. My affair with long hair is back and totally loving it!
