To say that I’ve tried all kinds of hair treatments is an understatement. Even before my makeup crazy, I was very much hair crazy already (until now, I guess). I swear I’ve tried it all – relaxing, rebonding, permanent blowdry, brazilian blowouts, all kinds of keratin treatments. Like relationships (before I got married, of course LOL), some work, some don’t – I move along to the next. I’m still on the hunt for the hair treatment that can tame this wild, wild hair very much abused from all the heat styling, coloring and highlighting – hopefully something that can last longer than a month.
I think I’ll let the result speak for itself!
I don’t like the very flat-ironed slash rebonded look at all, but blowdrying or ironing the hair is an important part of the treatment as it “seals” the Keratin and Glycolic Acid into the hair. After the treatment, hair feels a bit dry and a touch coarse – I would describe it as the hair having been ‘exfoliated‘. Usually after Keratin treatments, I feel my hair has thinned out but this one didn’t feel like the ordinary Keratin result – my hair still feels thick even though it has been ironed to almost paper-thin level. Yes, it looks extremely flat right after but when washed off (the next day), your hair’s natural body reappears just void of any frizz or demarcations from previous treatments. The photo below (as well as the first one in this entry) shows how my hair looks like 1 week post-treatment. This is without any heat styling or brushing – and only using the Keratin Complex Shampoo, Conditioner and the amazing Keratin Infusion Replenisher. The Replenisher isn’t an oil, more like a gel slash wax-like serum that doesn’t weigh down the hair but smoothens it out more and makes it easy to style however you want. I highly recommend trying this treatment!
