Brazilian Hair Straightening kits - any regular users please?
I've bought the Keratin Kits box from Amazon in the past but the usual one is no longer available - there's something that looks similar by Cocochoco on Amazon and Ebay but different size and price. If anyone has bought recently would you mind sharing where from? I'd love to hear about other good brands or even non-permanent blow dry sprays that work too - thanks!
Thanks fizzy! I bought the Tresemme 7 day keratin creme today as an interim - was reluctant to buy the shampoo and conditioner too as the whole lot would cost about the same as the Keratin Kit did, and that definitely works!
Buster yes it's pretty straightforward, just takes a couple of hours of washing, drying, painting the stuff on, drying again and then lots of straightening. Loads cheaper than in a salon and lasts at least a couple of months.
I was like something out of an Amazon advert this morning. Walked to work in the horrid damp air, got in the lift and both recoiled and gasped at my reflection - large, fluffy, round hair. Had ordered the Chocoloco by the time I got out of the lift at the 5th floor . It better work like the old stuff.
re the above - with the permanent straightening I use, after the treatment take a week off from getting sweaty if at all possible. The longer you can last without washing it, the longer the treatment will stick.
