Being in LA, and preparing for the long haul, I wanted to get pampered. So my friend Nicky and I went to the unfortunately named Juan Juan Salon in Beverly Hills. We went in for a simple manicure and pedicure. However, when we saw that they do aromatherapy hair treatments, we had to jump at the chance (although my first thought was, “what the fuck is it?”). I mean how LA would this be. Maybe this exists in New York City, and I’ve never noticed (I have been going to the same stylist for years).
To my disappointment, it was basically an expensive oil treatment. A combination of Lemon, Geranium, Tea Tree, Chamomile, and lemon were used. All I have to say, is that afterwards I hated the smell of my hair. If I wanted to smell of Geranium, I would have gone to my aunt Allegra’s and rolled around in her garden.
I had to rush back to the hotel, and give it a cleansing of my own. I guess I thought that somehow with Aromatherapy thrown in to the title, I would suddenly have LA hair. Thankfully, you can’t take the New York City out of my hair.
