You know I am always trying some new hair product or another. You also know I like to write about it.
My hair drives me batty sometimes. It's wavy, it's curly and it's frizzy if I don't do anything to it - blow dry only and my hair looks like a big puff of cotton candy, air dry and it's curls in some areas, waves in others and frizz all over. Get me a good round brush and some kind of iron, and I can get it under control fairly easily, but it's still a pain and god forbid, it get damp in a rain shower or it's humid outside, because I am doomed.
I kept looking at this product at Ulta called Liquid Keratin. The initial kit was $69.00. I kept mulling it over but never bought it. Then I started hearing and seeing stuff about the Brazilian Blowout, which is nothing like a Brazilian bikini wax, in case you are wondering. Then I started looking at other salon smoothing treatments. Basically, I didn't want to pay 100's of dollars every 3-6 months. If I do that, I won't be able to afford the Botox I hope to get this year.
So I finally broke down and bought the Liquid Keratin kit. Really, what could it hurt? Well, after I started thinking about that, I had all kinds of crazy thoughts - it could fry my hair and it would all break off, I could go bald, I could have a horrible reaction and break out all over my scalp and neck. The list went on. But I am brave and adventurous when it comes to my hair. It's just hair and it grows back. At least it always has.
I used the product as directed. I love it. My hair is definitely not straight, which is fine, I wasn't going for straight. I was going for smooth. And I got it - at least about 80-90% smoother than before. And it says I can still wear it curly if I want. We'll have to see about that - once the heat and humidity set in. I am using the shampoo and conditioner that go with the treatment and I will be doing the treatment again when it's time (6 weeks-ish). I definitely will saturate my hair more the next time since I went a little light the first time. And no, I was not paid to say this.
