Revitalize Your Hair with RO2 Beauty & Wellness’ Hair Treatments

My hair had wavy ends and was dull and dryEver since I was younger, I admit, I never gave my hair the care it needed. I’ve had it permed, colored multiple times, straightened through rebonding twice, and blow-dried countless times. The only thing I did to make it smoother was to use conditioner. That’s it. I only focused on taking care of my face, but after my visit at rO2 Beauty & Wellness Center, I learned that it’s just as important to take care of my crowning glory. 🙂

I have really dry and dull hair for years. Some people who see my hair would think that I had it digitally permed because of the waves at the lower part of my hair strands. I guess that’s why I didn’t really pay attention to my hair – as long as it’s long and still slightly manageable, I’m okay with how it looked.

But, after my hair “makeover” at rO2 Beauty & Wellness Centre in Jupiter Street in Makati, I realized it’s easy and hassle-free if you just spend a little of your time to pamper your hair from the scalp to the ends.

I went to rO2 Beauty & Wellness Center to experience what they offer, what they’re proud of – high quality service at a posh location right along the heart of Makati in Jupiter Street and the first Oxygen hair and scalp treatment in the country.

I love the serene and relaxing ambiance inside their spa and salon. As soon as you step into their second floor where the salon and spa are located, you’d immediately get into that mood for complete relaxation.

I didn’t shampoo my hair that morning because I know they’ll do it before the whole hair treatment. I was to get the following services:

  • Hair and Scalp Detox with Oxy treatment
  • Keratin hair treatment
  • and, finally, a haircut

Introducing : Timbre Gitara Headphones

A couple of posts ago, I wrote about the new Filipino brand of headphones Timbre (pronounced as tam-ber). I am so glad to finally get to reveal to you the first design of the Timbre headphones that is all about Filipino pride and support for our own music – Gitara.

The Timbre Gitara headphones screams Pinoy pride! Will be available in stores in December 2011

The whole design concept behind the Gitara headphone is a collaboration between Timbre and one of the top and most popular design studios in the Philippines, Team Manila.

We got to interview Paul, the guy behind Timbre, and he gladly shared with us how he came up with the concept of Timbre. He believed it was about time for a Pinoy to come out with our own brand of headphones to promote, not only Pinoy pride, but support of local music or OPM.

Timbre supports local music

Timbre is a design-driven brand of headphones, thus the use of the byline “The Color of Music”. This concept is based on the idea that there’s a synesthete in all of us and with the use of graphics design, they want us to visualize what shapes, colors and compositions will represent a certain genre of music.
