In all my visits to salons in Kuwait weather for hair treatments,styling,cutting or dying , I have never went through any of that without being in an unbearable pain.The hair dresser or her assistance handle my hair like a rag ,as if its not attached to my scull! I swear to god ,not even once that I did not feel any pain while they work on my hair. And I honestly started to think that I’m too sensitive and this is how things should go in salons and that I just have to take it and shut up.
But deep down inside I know that a professional hair stylist should know how to take extra care of my hair weather while washing it, brushing it or styling it. She should know that my hair is as precious to me as any other part of my body. styling does not necessarily means hair damage to a professional.
Well that all was clear to me when I visited a salon in Dubai to get my hair washed for I forgot my shampoos at home and I have just got my hair coloured ,so I really did not want to risk washing it with the hotel shampoo. I went to a ladies salon and of course like most salons in Dubai the staff are professional hair dressers with actual degrees. I washed my hair and blow dried it. I swear I did not feel any pain !not even once ,weather while washing my hair or while blow drying it. I actually enjoyed the gentle hair wash with the head massage . She treated my hair with respect , just like a HAIRDRESSER should!
Then I remembered all the horrible pain I went through in salons in Kuwait and realised I was right all that time! It’s frustrating that we pay a lot of money for salons here and not get the service we want. hairdressers here in Kuwait have no educational background of the beauty field and sometimes no trainings at all. they would wash your hair like a dirty rag with no care to the damage of hair or the pain they put you through.
