I’ve promised to write an update of how I feel about the Keratin hair treatment which I’ve done twice now.
The first one I did was not very strong, it was a mild one but my hairdresser warned me. Due to me being so paranoid of getting flat hair I didn’t want to go all in first time I tried. What she did was basically applying a mask, which I sat for 20 min under a heat lamp with, after the rinse she sprayed some spray and used a straightener. My hair was smooth immediately after and this was suppose to last up to 2 months.
But this first treatment lasted me only 1 month because I was stupid and wet my hair during swimming + used normal shampoo. Big No-No! So second treatment I did it in Bali and it was the proper “hardcore” one.
This time with the “real” keratin treatment the hair dresser applied a cream which he let dry on my hair + used a straightener. My hair felt a little bit greasy, and it was supposed to be like this for 3 days, only then could I come back to the hair salon and they would finish off the treatment.
Now I’m being very careful with my hair. Only special keratin shampoo, no wetting the hair during swimming and I’m trying to wash my hair as little as possible. The more you wash it, the sooner the treatment will go away.
…But I love it. I don’t understand why I haven’t done it earlier!
I feel like I was born under a rock, totally missed out on the amazing power keratin can do to hair. But I’ve spoken to some friends which this treatment does not suit for, so I guess it’s all about what type of hair you have.
My hair is very thin, damaged, dry with loads of split ends – so this was the ideal cure to get the hair in shape. It feels stronger, shinier and generally speaking in it’s original quality again. And It got only a tiny bit more flat, I can still get volume in my hair with proper blowdrying – so I shouldn’t have worried so much before.
Right now all I can say: God Bless KERATIN!
