My hair has really damaged ends because of all the abuses I subject it to — rebonding and coloring on a regular basis.
I dropped by Shuji Kida Hair Salon the other day because I got wind that Japanese stylist Hideyuki Tochioka is in town. I had been itching to get a haircut because I can no longer stand my super damaged split-end ridden hair. Hide took a good look at my hair before starting.
He told me he couldn’t cut my hair too short because I was already getting curly regrowth at the upper back portion of my head. Hide really considers all factors beforehand (hair texture, face shape, etc.) so when he asked what style I wanted I told him to cut as he deemed fit… as long as it was low maintenance.
The ends of my hair were fried so bad I can hold them like stiff little sticks. Ew.
Hide told me he had no choice but to leave some of the damaged ends because cutting any shorter would make it hard to manage. He also suggested that I go back to have the regrowth retouched in a month or so. He also shared a couple of hair care tips for my damaged locks:
- When shampooing, lather up first on your palms and then focus on the scalp. Damaged hair ends are already very dry so you don’t need to shampoo them. Rinse very well.
- When conditioning, do the opposite and focus more on the ends.
Hide cut my hair in such a way that most of the damaged ends were removed without any extreme layers. This allows hair to grow out without being awkward. This is actually my second haircut from Hide, I had my first cut back in 2011.
A haircut from Hide costs P3,500 for women and P3,000 for men. He is also good at curling hair, although I don’t think I will be trying that service anytime soon since I prefer my hair straight and easy to style, lol. He flies in every 10 weeks and he can be booked at Shuji Kida Hair Salon. This time, he’ll be here until April 25, 2013.
