My MIL has had it done - her hair looks fab. She has been on 2 hols to Spain and it survived the humidity - now been 2 months since she had it done and still looks much softer [and whispers] less wiry
She paid £170 which included a cut and full size shampoo and conditioner.

I am thinking of getting an express version done at the Saks I go to. It's £90 to have the Keratin just blow dried in. But I figure I can then go home and get my own straighteners out and give hair a good go over.
I have 3 colours incl a lightener in my hair and will have the keratin done immediately after my next root touch up. You'd have to wait a couple of weeks after highlights to get it done but it can follow highlights straight away (so says my hairdresser)

Hmm I went from "thinking" about it to having it done in 2 sentences.
Soooo weak!!

I've had it done twice and really liked the results. It doesn't last long on me because I swim quite a lot, so wash hair more frequently.

My hair is fluffy, frizzy and annoying and it really takes that away. You don't get a really straight result like you would from eg yuko straightening but it's a softer, smoother look.

I paid £60 on a special offer in a salon in Ealing (London), for above shoulder length hair. The groupon deals look good.

I've had it done twice and loved the difference it made. Mine doesn't last as long as its "supposed" to either because I have to wash my hair at least every other day.

I did it myself (with the help of a friend) both times.
