I am so excited. I went to the hair salon yesterday to get my hair done and my stylist told me about something new called a keratin treatment that is supposed to make your hair so soft and manageable and HEALTHY. No more frizzies. Nor more coarse unruly hair. The best thing of all is that it repairs your hair and even helps the split ends. Sounds like just what I needed. Then she told me the price and I almost swallowed my tongue......BUT.....I have been oh so good lately and I really do deserve to do something nice for myself and hair is so important. So I took the plunge. First they paint every strand with the keratin stuff which smells a lot like coconut. Very time consuming. Then you wait for 30 minutes and after that they blow dry it in. I was amazed figuring I would be all greasy but no..........It's a MIRACLE. My hair is soft soft soft and smoothe and did I say soft. I mean it's like baby soft!!! No more frizzies either. Woo hoo!!! Now I can't wash it for three days but I can flat iron it. I can't use any shampoo or conditioner with sulfates or sodium in them so I ended up buying some special keratin shampoo and conditioner. I am totally amazed at my hair and how much healthier it feels. It is shiny and looks great.
Now for the down side of all of this.....it only lasts 6 months. But...if I am doing this and healing my hair I figure the good effects can only help to make it healthier right???
