I just came back from my first trip to the hair salon here in BKK. I tried to ask for a haircut, shampoo and hot oil treatment. I got the haircut, the shampoo, and then she styled and gelled my hair to look like a Thai guy. It looks kind of funny right now. hahaha.
How do I ask for a hot oil treatment in Thai, and also a list of general vocab to use when going to the hair salon would be great.
Naman rroan sai toot, Khrap!
Oughta do the trick.
I have never seen a hot oil treatment in my 22 years here. Good luck. How much did ya pay?

I just hold up two fingers and make a buzzing noise.
^What about adding the "hold up two fingers and make a buzzing noise" and see what happens?
With all due respect, can I ask WTF is a 'hot oil treatment'? Ok, so I am bald (and have been since I was 18), so my knowledge of hair procedures is a bit thin, so I have to ask, why would you put hot oil on your hair?
Do you mean this type?
I would be very cautious with Thai salons or so called hairdressers.
As a matter of interest how do you ask for ''A wash and a wax polish on your hairless head ? "

Don't get me wrong - I don't want a 'serious' board but I'd like posts to be either genuinely amusing, informative and/ or thought provoking.

Yes Natalie8 that is the kind I mean. I asked for one at the MBK mall but the price they quoted was actually more than what I would have paid in the U.S.!
I have seen some bottles on the shelf that look like over the counter stuff, but it's hard for me to tell if it is what I really want.
Someone on my facebook said this would do the trick in thai: Pom tong gan nuyd num mun.
Daniel Bedingfield claimed that his new album is what it would sound like if Sting, Stevie Wonder and Micheal Jackson were in a basement together - I haven't got the album so I'll have to imagine the sound of a blind bloke and a Geordie kicking the shit out of a pedophile.
There's a salon on Rambutree next to Kao San called Shewa. The staff speak English and the prices are pretty good. They'll try and talk you into a million or so treatments that you never knew you needed, though, and generally make you feel like a troglodyte. However, there is a list you can point at to avoid confusion.
Max, who is gonna pay for the treatment?
