Do you ‘Keratin?’

After leaving the salon Thursday night, I knew I was in trouble. My hair has never been so soft, so poker straight, so absent of frizz. I noticed my cousin (love you Kel!) was using new products and a new straightener as she styled my hair. She explained to me that she become a certified ‘Keratin’ specialist…which basically means she can make magic happen! Rather than trying to explain the process, here is what wikipedia says about the Brazilian hair straightening procedure:

Brazilian Keratin Treatmentis a method of temporarily straightening hair by sealing the hair with a liquid keratin and formaldehyde solution with a flat iron. The Brazilian Keratin Treatment is a long-term blow dry for hair that lasts about three months. Pioneered in Brazil, the Brazilian Keratin Treatment is to be able to be performed on all types of chemically treated hair (bleached, hi-lights, coloured, permed, relaxed or previously straightened). It is used on frizzy, damaged, unhealthy, dull and mistreated hair.

I didn’t receive the treatment, just a cruel tease of what my hair would look like if I did. I am tempted to never wash these locks again…screw working out, my hair never gets greasy…I can do this! Sigh.

My hair is never this straight!

I love diffusing my hair and rockin’ the curl, but a few months of perfectly smooth hair? Sign. Me. Up. Now, I just need to win the lottery so I can afford it!

What happened to my split ends?! They are GONE.

I know it’s a drastic change when even the bf comments…men are oblivious to most cosmetic changes…no!? Yes! Last summer I had 7 inches busted off and the bf and the dad didn’t say A WORD!! I know I’m not the only lady out there that has less than observant men in their lives πŸ˜‰ Gotta love ’em, though.

Have you or anyone you’ve known received the Keratin treatment? I am seriously obsessed right now!

  1. I haven’t heard of Keratin but it looks like it’s working for you. What lovely, beautiful, straight blonde hair you have.

  2. I have heard about keratin treatments, and I def want to give it a try sometime! I haven’t been able to find any salons in the C-bus area that offer this type of treatment though! It does concern me however that formaldehyde is used in the process!

  3. P.S. Your hair looks great!

  4. OMG, a good friend of mine had this done and it looked amazing! And lasted months!

    I had my hair colored about 2 weeks ago and my husband didn’t notice either. Someone in one of my classes actually commented and he overheard her and asked what she was talking about!

  5. I heard the results last a long time too.

  6. I just had this done! My hair is Ah. Maze. Ing. It’s crazy-soft, shiny and no frizz. I’m hooked. It was a high-end car payment. But what price beauty? Well, I guess there actually is a price…$400. But dang, some things are just worth it.
