### What price beauty...

Xg[gp[}Ƃ̂lAǂłĂɂƎv̂ŎQl܂ł...

On Friday, I sat through three hours of torture in order to get my hair straightened.

To those of you who have not had the pleasure of this procedure yet, I should warn that it is a long and arduous process.

First, you have to get your hair shampooed, albeit lightly, to make sure that your hair is clean and free of any styling agents, I suppose.

Then, you have to sit there feeling faint while a noxious paste is applied to your hair. This, ostensibly, is to soften your hair and prepare it for the next stage.
After it's applied, you have to wait until it sets, although you have to breathe through your mouth the whole time to avoid inhaling the fumes. The staff are remarkably nonchalant about this, saying comforting things like "Please let us know right away if you feel sick. Quite a few people do."

Next, after they've tied a few strands of your hair in knots to make sure that the paste has worked its magic, it's back to the sink for another shampooing.

Then comes the most important part: the ironing out, lock by unruly lock.
The last time I tried this, my hair came out unnaturally straight, and I despised the way it looked for about a month. This time, perhaps because Ifd been so forthright in expressing my reservations (I'm not sure I want to straighten it again; it looked awful the last time and I hated it!), my stylist wielded one of the irons himself, instead of entrusting me wholly to his minions.
Although I could see steam rising from my hair, accompanied by the faint whiff of something burning, I knew that I was in good hands. Each lock my stylist handled fell gently from the iron with just the right amount of curl to it, a feat that his assistant was unable to replicate.

Finally, the last shampoo, trim, and blow-dry.
Once your hair is straightened, it doesn't need to be rolled carefully around a brush anymore, and my stylist simply used his fingers to comb through it.

Now my hair looks absolutely incredible: glossy, smooth, and raven-black, like I just stepped out of a shampoo ad. And I can achieve this look in five minutes. I could probably get away with not brushing my hair at all on busy mornings. A true bargain, considering the price, and worth every minute of discomfort.

Thanks again, Mr. K!
