1.) Location. The salon was in Makati and I live Paranaque. I know this isn't a big deal to a lot of people, but it is to me. I left the house at 8am knowing that I'd be home around 2 or 3pm, but I was wrong. The treatment started at 9am and ended at 5:30pm so I went home when it was already dark. I had to wait for the shuttle bound to P'que for an easier commute. It's a big deal to me because my 4-year-old son whom I left at home kept asking my hubby, my mom or my siblings where I am. I'm also not used to leaving him at home that long. It's definitely not worth spending the whole day with. And worse, my husband wasn't able to sleep because he stayed up all day watching my son and he had work that night at 11:30PM. *Sigh*
The irony is after I bought the deal, another hair rebonding deal came up and it was located in Paranaque - just walking distance near our home! *sigh*
Lesson: never buy a deal that's too far from you + wait a little longer for the best deal that might pop up online that's convenient for you.
2.) I didn't call the parlor if a slot was available. I bought the deal first before I could call them. So what happened was when I called them last August 5, I was able to reserve a slot on Sept. 10. They were always fully booked because of their deal. *sigh* So I had to wait a month before I could avail it.
Bottom line is I could have gotten the same, or better yet, a better hair treatment promo that's near our home. I even saw a hair rebonding package that offers a free meal. At first, I didn't know why would they offer a free meal. Well, now I know.
3.) The woman who was assigned to me for the treatment kept tending to other customers while I'm waiting and losing precious time. I think the treatment could have ended an hour earlier if someone helped her. Unlike other parlors who will ask for 2 people at the same time to tend to you to dry your hair fast or to iron your hair faster if needed, in this parlor, only one will tend to you. I can't blame them because everyone is so busy with their own customers who also availed of the promo. They can't even entertain walk-ins because they're just so busy. *sigh*
Here are some pics of the parlor:
