Hello HairinManila Readers!
Wow, isn’t it unbelievably hot out there lately? I just came from the beach this weekend, and I really felt the sun drying out my hair! I find myself putting my medium-length hair in a ponytail or bun more often now thanks to the searing heat, even if it’s bad for my rebonded hair. I’m sure many of you feel the heat as well and the damage it can cause to your hair. Phew! A reminder: Protect your tresses this summer!
Agoo Bengzon once again graces our page as she writes about Hairworks Salon. Hairworks boasts excellent service and a long list of loyal clientele that come in regularly for their maintenance and pampering. We set an appointment for Tara Santos of Summit Media to have her hair rebonded in Hairworks as Agoo writes about this hair oasis at the heart of Makati CBD.

It was the time of year again when all of Tara’s natural curls were starting to show, and the humid weather wasn’t making things any better. No amount of gel/hairspray would tame Tara’s out-of-control mane. Tara has had her hair rebounded countless times, and suffice to say, she has seen and been through it all. She has had her scalp burnt, her hair return to its natural curly state after the first wash, and has had to deal with the horror of constant hair breakage.
This time, however, the experience was anything but horrific. Under the professional hands of Senior Stylist Rey Amorin and L’Oréal Master Colorist Bonnie De Ocampo of Hairworks,Tara’s frizzy and unmanageable hair was transformed into a sleek, shiny and wonderfully straight ‘do.
The first thing that was done was an analysis of Tara’s hair. Since it has been subjected to countless rebonding procedures, the elasticity and porosity of the strands had to be determined. After which, depending on whether the hair is colored or not, the technicians can begin choosing the right variants of rebonding products.
Tara is first brought to the backwash station where her hair is first lightly washed using L’Oréal Professionnel’s Liss Ultime Shampoo.
Tara’s hair is silky straight but has a natural look to it, unlike some rebonding services which grant you straighter locks but end up making hair look brittle and broom-like in appearance.
To maintain the shine and relaxed appearance of hair, Hairworks recommends using L’Oréal Professionnel Liss Extreme products. This range controls excessive volume and unruly curls, leaving hair de-tangled, manageable and easy to style every single day.
