I can never undestand why they are called hairdressers since all they did was to wash your hair and make you look like a Mental Patient. But still, I loved mine. I mean who else would be locking their shop doors and hiding behind tinted glass?
Still a normal visit for me would be as follows:
1) Shampooing with massage
First, she would pour you a cup of Chinese Tea and puts in on the table, which is also a way of telling you where to sit so that you do not get whack by old aunties's handbags.
Once you are ready, she wets your hair with some fancy soap and water. Using her fingers, she would go through your hair so thoroughly that Lice would not even want to live there. At the same time, she would use her fingernails to gently massage the scalp and also parts of the head. This is the best part because by "scratching" my scalp from the front to the back, its very relaxing. This time, she is using a new shampoo/cream which made my whole head and shoulders (not the shampoo) feeling very cool indeed.
The feeling is like eating mint sweets and your tongue feels funny.
(Anyway, today she gave me an extra long massage since I did not visit them for 3 months)
At this point, she will stop and remove all the soapy foam from your head by sweeping them from the sides of the head to the top with the palms of her hands. Suffice to say, this is the point where you wake up from your day-dreaming, only to see Ultraman staring back at you.
3) More Shampoo and Massage
Aaaaaahh, Life is good! Not only does she massage your head, she will also clean your ears a bit and also massage your neck and shoulders too. Either that or she has to complete some anger management exercise. Sometimes, I felt like a guenea pig because of the different massage techniques and shampoos used on me. Heh
This is the part where she will rinse away all the shampoo and dead animals in the hair, dry them and get it ready for the slaugh.... er, cutting. Because of the new shampoo/cream I wanted to tell her to try with cold water instead of the usual warm water until I remembered what happens when you drink cold water immediately after the mint sweets. Heh
5) The Main Course
Her sister would then take over and start to cut your hair. Since I am a regular, she would just stick to the usual style, which is fine by me (since they all looked the same anyway). Once done, she will rinse away all the loose hair and also puts the sculpting gel to make sure it stays in that shape until I reach home.
All this for RM30. And I feel so stress-free after that..........................
