On Thursday I had my first HERBAL sauna experience up at "The View" (our mtb (mountainbike) team used to term this place so) . We 3x went up there after work. I was not that well prepared. I only brought shampoo, towel, hair treatment wax and 1 set of changing clothes.
The other two apparently have addicted to it. :) Yesterday when they ajak me again, I said YES. So...this time we 5x went up again. Ah ha, this round I was all armed loh. I remembered to bring along lock & key, shower cap & skin care (face & body) products liao.

Patience is the key word.
Your butt will be stuck in that chair for 3 to 5 hours, depending on your hair texture and length.
I did it last Sunday. This was not my first time doing rebonding or perming but everytime I forget and forgive. :)
Firstly hair cut /trim was done per my request. This took ~20 mins.
Application of perming lotion (to soften the hair and break down its bonds) onto the hair was nothing. It took ~20 mins. It's the steaming process which lasted 45 mins that nearly drove me nuts. The scalp nearly boiled. *WTF! Why did I pay the money to torture my head??? Am I insane or what?!*
After that, it took about ~15 mins to let the scalp and hair cool down. Later on washed off and blew dry, this took about ~15 mins.
During straightenining hair process , one of the hair stylists kept on touching my scalp with her flat iron. Haiyoh, high temperature one leh. She was holding too near lah! For almost 1 and 1/2 hrs they two ironed my hair. Argh!!
Fixing the bonds (A neutralizer is applied to reset the bonds and stabilize the hair) only took about 15 min - this was bearable.
Later on washed off again and did a 5-min hair treatment followed by blow-dry again.
At the end of the day, i just felt that my scalp has become thinner.
If you were to ask me what is my comment after this torturing process? "It was terrible but it's worth it. I can just comb it with my fingers when I wake up in the morning for at least 4 months!" That's why I said loh, I forgot and forgave.

At the same area there were 4 to 5 other groups too. From strangers chit-chatting became like friends!
