I had Keratin treatment two days ago and I really think it's worked

I'm amazed, I have to wait till tomorrow to wash it, they put they keratin in and then dry and straighten it into your hair which you then leave in for 72 hours.

It seems to be getting shinier and straighter by the day, or it could just be greasy. I will update tomorrow but supposedly I'll be able to wash it and not straightne it after, we will see..

Oh dear, was my post that boring

Yes smile Also we know it works smile

I'm having my second one ever next week. Love the fact that I went 3 months without needing to blow dry or straighten my hair!

StuntCubble Fri 14-Oct-11 21:17:57


Did it really work that well? Am still feeling a bit disbelieving..

Wow! 3 months without drying or straightening? Are there any downsides to this treatment.

Geordieminx Fri 14-Oct-11 21:30:58

How much?

StuntCubble Fri 14-Oct-11 21:33:26

No downsides as far as I'm aware, it's meant to be quite natural and actually very good for hair. Mine was £79 but that was a groupon offer, I think it should be closer than £300, I think you an buy the treatment stuff on eBay etc and it really wouldn't be all that hard to do if you had a friend to help

So when they dry and straighten it, is your hair fixed in that style if you see what I mean?

StuntCubble Fri 14-Oct-11 21:46:36

I don't think so though they say not to tie it back or clip it until it's been washed the first time

NormaSatansFelcher Fri 14-Oct-11 21:49:36

Could I still do the sock bun and have curls with it? This is important

LeBOOOf Fri 14-Oct-11 21:49:51

How much did it cost, if you don't mind me asking?

stripeybumpinthenight Fri 14-Oct-11 21:51:02

Is it the same thing as a Brazilian blow-dry then? Damn, missed that Groupon!

There's also some £30-40 homekits available, but I haven't tested them myself so have doubts about their effectiveness.

StuntCubble Fri 14-Oct-11 22:02:21

Well woman said that you can still do curls as it doesn't so much straighten but smooth and eliminate frizz, I'll tell ya tomorrow when it's washed. I think possibly it is the same as a brazillian, googling comes up with differing views.

StuntCubble Fri 14-Oct-11 22:02:50

It was £79

LeBOOOf Fri 14-Oct-11 22:07:15

That's impressive- it sounds like something I should look into.

banana87 Fri 14-Oct-11 22:07:48

The only thing you have to watch is the formaldehyde (sp?). Formaldehyde is now illegal in this country but is the main 'ingredient' in Brazillian blow dry/Keratin treatment, and salons are very much still using it. You can get Formaldehyde free ones, these are rare though. Hopefully they will start becoming standard though! I personally use the Keratin Complex system. It's formaldehyde free. There are a handful of salons that do this, a quick google will tell you your closest one.

StuntCubble Fri 14-Oct-11 22:10:29

Mine was keratin complex.

LeBOOOf Fri 14-Oct-11 22:18:13

Do keep us updated then- I'm very interested to see how it turns out.

StuntCubble Fri 14-Oct-11 22:19:00

I will do. Cannot wait to wash it

StuntCubble Sat 15-Oct-11 11:32:04

Wow, it's amazing I've just washed and rough dried it and it looks so shiny glossy and swishy, it's miles better than I can get it with straighteners am so pleased

trixymalixy Sat 15-Oct-11 11:39:20

I've had several Brazilian blow dries. They're good, but not good enough to let me just wash and leave my hair unfortunately!!

I've just bought the home kit and will be giving it a go soon.

Geordieminx Sat 15-Oct-11 13:59:48

Chop chop trixy... We are waiting!
