In with KeratinMy hair is naturally a frizzy, kinky tragedy — not in the I-Woke-Up-Like-This beautiful mess kind of way, but more like Too-Damaged-From-All-The-Chemical-Dyes kind. I’ve actually done two Keratin treatments before and while they did make my hair soft and smooth as promised, they didn’t last longer than a week. Not the products’ fault, I was told my hair is just too damaged for the treatment so I really can’t expect it to last more than one or two weeks. So going into this Kerasilk treatment with Cynos Inside Hair Care, I had managed expectations thanks to my previous experiences. I was surprised though — as it’s been two weeks since the treatment and my hair is still (miraculously) soft, smooth and manageable. Not pin straight as pictured above, but straight with body and volume that it looks like I’ve just gotten a blow dry. Photo spam after the jump! See before and after pics, as well as one week/two week updates. Cynos Kerasilk Keratin Treatment is kind of a permanent blow dry process that’s best for dry, damaged and frizzy hair(check check and check!) that’s been chemically processed. Cynos formulated their products to be water-based, so it’s not as harsh as the chemically-based keratin treatments in the market. It still stings the eyes though, but compared to the past two treatments I had — where I looked like I cried all night even until the next day of the treatment — this one only lasted for a couple of minutes and it didn’t sting as much. So the whole Step 1 – Step 3 process took around 35-40 minutes, which included pre-washing (Kerasilk Step 1 bottle) of the hair to remove build-up and any other residue from shampoo or whatever gunk that’s left in the hair. This is a prep to ensure that the keratin treatment will be absorbed by the hair. While waiting for the keratin to be absorbed (Step 3), we were also treated to a Gel Manicure by CND Shellac. To be honest, I am petrified by gel manicures because the first (and last) time I had it done, the removal process was a nightmare – the manicurist filed my nail plates. Good God, that was the longest and most torturing 20 minutes of my life. Anyway, CND Shellac is a kind of gel polish that promises zero filing! Removal is easy as they use CND removal wraps soaked in acetone to cover each nail. After 10 minutes of soaking, the wraps are removed and the polish should have dissolved. Sometimes, there could be bits of shellac left, which would only need to be removed by an orange stick. My sister accompanied me for the day. ‘Twas a lovely sister bonding (except afterwards when we shot OOTDs and nearly killed each other. LOL). And that’s it! The complete process took around 2 hours and after the ironing, you’re good to go. I know the AFTER photo looks super straight, almost like the dreaded “rebonded hair look” we all hate, but after one wash, it won’t look as pin straight anymore. It would in fact just look like it was blow-dried instead of ironed.
Final ThoughtsWell, it was a pretty painless process! The real question is… did it hold up for more than a week? Since I’ve pretty damaged hair that I feel is beyond-saving, I’m ecstatic to report that it’s been two weeks and I can still dash out the house with no heat styling, whatsoever and look like I’ve just gotten a blow-dry (not the styled one, just the air-dried blow-dry kind). Pretty happy with the results, if I say so myself. I’ll leave you with Week 1 and Week 2 photos below so you can see how the hair looks like after you’ve washed it several times. I’ve been using the Kerasilk Shampoo & Conditioner religiously (but any sulfate-free shampoo & conditioner should work too). Also, I haven’t heat styled my hair since treatment and well, I don’t really brush my hair (i’m more of a just comb through with fingers girl) so I haven’t used any brushes as well.
I. LOVE. IT.
