Scalp Treatment Backstory + My Feelings About It:
Let me just say, I’m done with wigs. I thought they’d be a good alternative for dying and perming my hair, but they have damaged my scalp so, so badly. I had stopped wearing them so often, and only wore them on weekends, but it didn’t get any better. I’ve got flakes blocking my pores so my hair can’t grow and it just falls out instead. ToT
Anyways, I went to Juno and got scalp treatment, which cost 80,000KRW. Scaling itself—which consists of dipping a q-tip into some liquid and rubbing that on your scalp—costs 60,000KRW. (Can you hear my disappointment?) I had actually gotten scaling done just last week at some small salon, but judging by the before photos they took yesterday, it made no difference….only to find that Juno’s mega expensive scalp treatment was practically the same as what the ajumma did to me last week.
I know Juno is recommended online for foreign hair and stuff, but my college-aged Korean friends don't like Juno. They say it's super overpriced and their friend also had a dyeing mishap (the man dyed her neck black).
So in short, I was a little disappointed with the treatment. I don’t think I’ll continue getting it every month. 80,000KRW can pay all my bills! For that money I’ll just get a shampoo and try it on my own~ And if it really doesn’t work, I’ll go to a dermatologist, not a hair salon.
But I like the haircut, at least! :D She trimmed my bangs and ends. Does it make me look younger? I hope so >.< I feel like short hair is risky--it either makes me look young or middle-aged. >.<
^ Like here, I think I look middle-aged… ㅜㅜ
^Oh~ This filter is interesting~~ I like it, heehee~
So all in all, I’ve decided to just don a bob for a few months. No more wigs, just real hair! That’s what normal people do anyways, right? People that don’t wear wigs just commit to a hairstyle until it grows out?
