My Tony and Jackey Digital Perm Experience


My Rating:

Tony & Jackey - Stylist: Seven

Last March 21, I’ve decided to undergo a hair makeover, a digital perm to be exact, at Tony and Jackey Salon in SM City North EDSA. I’ve been wanting to try a perm to make my limp hair look fuller and thicker but I haven’t got enough guts and courage to do it.

Tony and Jackey digital perm treatments cost PhP 3,000 to PhP 5,000. I availed their Loreal Setting Digital Perm with Hair Cut plus Treatments (Package D) and Seven was my Korean hairstylist. They recommend Loreal digiperm for first timers because it uses a milder formula and does less damage than the Aqua Setting Digital Perm (Package B).

My color-treated, straight hair before the digiperm (not rebonded).

“A digital perm is a perm which uses hot rods with the temperature regulated by a machine, which has a digital display, hence the name. However, the process of the perm is quite analogous to that of a traditional perm. A normal perm basically requires only the perm solution. A digital perm requires a (different) solution plus heat. This type of perm was developed in Korea, and now popular in both South Korea and Japan and other countries.” –

I don’t like small, kinky curls and big curls lose their effect faster. So I had medium curls. Medium curls get bigger after a few months.

Here are my curls after 4 hours. They told me to wait for 72 hours before washing my hair. To my dismay my curls got straightened out after three days, but after washing, the curls were back.

It took me a month to get used to my new hairstyle.



Care Tips for Curly Hair

  • Twist and scrunch. Twist your locks then scrunch them upwards. You do this when you’re in the shower, when drying your hair, and when putting hair creams on.
  • Ditch the brush. I’ve had no problem with this because I don’t brush my hair often even when it’s straight.
  • Curly hair may appear “buhaghag” at times but you’ll get used to it. If you want your tresses tamed, apply a small amount of anti-frizz hair cream.
  • I use Monea Curl Defining Milk. It’s only PhP 95 in Watson’s. When applying hair cream, don’t flatten your curls on your palms. Do the twist and scrunch.

Dearies, I had my hair cut short last September 2011. For those who are asking for the recent photos, these are until the first week of September.

I’m 80% satisfied with Tony & Jackey’s services. Tony and Jackey promos are still ongoing. Here’s the price list.

    hi there! im planning to have my hair be permed nextweek. it’s rebonded. but it’s already 6months since it was rebonded. i’ve read ur response from one of your messages and it says there that the digiperm won’t work with rebonded hair? is it true? 🙁 i’ve inquired to tony & jackey in smf but then they just asked if my hair is relaxed. i said no but it’s rebonded. they told me it’s just fine. also, a friend of mine who’s hair was also rebonded just underwent through digital perm and it worked. but i didn’t like the result that much coz the curls weren’t good in the picture.

What if I had my hair colored within 3 days before getting the digital perm, do u think it will not cause my hair any damage? Thank you! and thank you too for inspiring me to get my hair done.

    • Amethystine

  9. permed

    Hello. I had my hair permed also and being a male. I don’t know much about shampoo maintenance for permed hair. May I know what shampoos and conditioners you used? Is it natural that the perm went out a few days later and after washing it, it returned?

    17 . Sep . 2011
    • Amethystine

      Hi! I use anti-dandruff shampoo to clean hair cream residue build-up and moisturizing conditioner for my conditioner (curly hair tends to be drier). Yes, it’s normal that your curls were straightened out and return after washing them. 🙂

    Hi! I’m planning to have my hair permed a month or two from now. My question is, will it work for a slight wavy hair like mine? Though I have my hair rebonded a year ago. Thanks 🙂

    25 . Sep . 2011
    • Amethystine

      Yes it will. My hair’s a bit wavy too, if cut shorter. 🙂

    I’m planning t perm my hair, is it hard to maintain? I have my hair rebonded a yr ago… Do yo have ur latest pic of your hair in front view? Thank you, your response is much appreciated.;-)

    15 . Oct . 2011
    • Amethystine

      Hi Toffee! For me, it’s harder to maintain than the rebonded hair. I had to put on hair creams whenever I’ll go out kasi it’s a bit unruly if I won’t use them. Sorry I’ve already cut my hair a month ago. Super short na so I can’t show you any pic 🙁 If you haven’t tried it, I suggest you do. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime kind of experience for me 🙂

    Hi! I also had my hair permed at T and j sa SM North last year. It retained it’s curls like yours din pero today I had mine cut off since it was growing too long and I don’t have the time to maintain it (e.g. pulled into a bun). I’m thinking of rebonding it naman. Hehe.

    29 . Nov . 2014

    I tried T & J’s digital perm. Unfortunately it didn’t work for me. My hair became super dry and frizzy.

    14 . Mar . 2016

Thanks for dropping by!
