Frizzy hair, split ends, clearly visible roots, or troublesome fringes? D’ Xpert Salon and Spa in Makati comes to solve hair and beauty problems so you can save yourself from future bad hair days. As the brand implies, D’ Xpert strives to be an expert in delivering quality treatments at their Hello Kitty-themed unit.
I was invited to try and experience their services for myself and I chose to avail of their ongoing promotion: Rebonding / Brazilian Blowout / Ombré (Hair Color Trend) + 6 other services for only PhP 2000. Very timely, since taming my hair has become one of the most frustrating parts of my morning routine, I had my hair rebonded and also got to experience foot spa, foot reflexology, manicure, pedicure, and hair cellophane. The last one in my list was supposedly “back massage,” but because I was rushing for dinner, I just skipped it and went out of the salon feeling satisfied anyway.

Review of D’ Xpert Salon and Spa (Dr Jose P. Rizal Avenue, Makati City)
The owner’s favorite color is pink, and it shows. D’ Xpert Salon and Spa is fitted with pink walls and Hello Kitty decorations. You can say this place’s interior design leans towards totally girly, but that doesn’t stop men from also visiting the salon and availing a number of their services.
Geared to its local clientele, D’ Xpert Salon and Spa is nestled on the quiet street of Dr Jose P. Rizal. It’s nicely spaced, with areas catering to the salon (front) and the spa (back) separately. Clean, colorful and contemporary, D’ Xpert is a beautiful place to conveniently and comfortably wile away the hours, so customers can book a whole host of treatments for a relaxing afternoon.
The staff were personable and professional. They offer drinks: coffee, tea, and water to guests waiting to be served. Hair stylists sounded knowledgeable about the products they use and procedures they do. They also recommend treatments, styles and cuts according to the customer’s facial shape, hair texture, hair condition, and personal preferences.
After getting a Brazilian Blowout at Petra & Pepita Encarnacion Group of Salon in October 2015 (nine months ago), I thought my hair was once again in dire need of a little pick-me-up. It’s a bit wavy with frizz all over. Hair rebonding with Cellowax cellophane treatment at D’ Xpert Salon and Spa gave me straight locks like the ones you see on the labels of hair products and shampoo ads. 🙂 Since there were too many customers in the salon being served simultaneously on a Sunday, the transformation was done in six hours. Sigh, I know. The wait was long but well worth it.
The procedure began with the hair stylist sectioning my hair and spraying the strands with water. Then, he applied the organic hair rebonding treatment and left it on for about an hour.
A vast of products used for hair rebonding are effective for hair straightening, but there’s only a few that are safe to use. Those containing strong chemicals can irritate the scalp, loosen the hair vitality, and may cause hair fall or more serious damages. D’ Xpert Salon and Spa’s Organic Hair Rebonding treatment manages to ease two head scratching worries. What’s good was that I did not feel my scalp sting or itch throughout the duration of the service.
After rinsing, the stylist went on towel-drying and blow-drying my hair before he ironed it straight. We waited for a while before he applied the neutralizer cream, rinsed my hair again, and then put on clear cellophane. The Cellowax cellophane treatment made my scalp feel icy cool and refreshed. Result is healthier and shinier hair that looks silkier than before. It also makes the natural color more vibrant and lush by increasing the light refraction due to the shine.
Before and After Photos
Foot spa, foot reflexology, manicure, and pedicure were neatly done as well. I liked that the manicurist/ pedicurist was gentle and thorough in her approach as I’m sensitive to pain. She did a wonderful job at both my hands and feet.
