Since I have my hair rebonded regularly, I couldn’t really try out the L’oreal Professionnel Chroma Straight service I was giving away. That being the case, the folks over at L’oreal Professionnel suggested that I go for the L’oreal X-tenso Shine Bond service instead. I didn’t really ask what it entailed, I assumed it was a treatment to make my hair shiny. Well, I was half-right.
My hair was blow-dried again and the dry ends were trimmed off. I wanted to have it cut and styled some more, but I was already very very late for an event I was supposed to attend so I contented myself with a little trim. Since I didn’t know Shine Bond was actually rebonding, I didn’t expect the procedure to last for over three hours. XD
I actually have shorter hair now that’s not long enough to pull back into a ponytail but I actually find it more versatile to style.
The Shine Bond service at Kerastase Institute by Salon ESA costs P5,000 for short hair / P6,000 for medium hair / P8,000 for long hair. My hair was classified as long. I loved my time there because the salon itself is so nice and the stylists are very good at what they do. I used to be afraid of X-tenso because most of the people I know who had it done ended up with stiff, flat, and helmet-like hair that’s stuck close to their heads. I actually brought up that concern with the stylist who worked on me and he said X-tenso rebonding results depend a lot on the stylist because factors like how your hair is ironed, how long the solutions are left in your hair, and more all contribute to how your hair will look afterwards. So if you’re considering L’oreal X-tenso rebonding, do hook up with a highly qualified salon like Kerastase Institute by Salon ESA. Kerastase Institute by Salon ESA is after all one of L’oreal Professionnel’s top partner salons and I can personally vouch for the quality of service and level of professionalism there.
I would like to thank L’oreal Professionnel for giving me the chance to experience X-tenso for myself. 🙂
