I posted the other day about getting a keratin hair treatment to try to help my damaged hair that also tends to be very frizzy. I was at my wit’s end by the time I had it done. When my hairdresser did a blowout, my hair looked nice. When I would wash my hair, I could spend almost an hour drying my hair using all the techniques I was told to use and using all the products I was told to use. And…it still looked awful.
I had the treatment on Friday and thought it looked great afterwards.
But, the real test would be when I could shampoo it today and I had to dry it myself. I wasn’t expecting it to look as nice as when a hairdresser does it. I just wanted it to look much better. There were 3 advantages I wanted from the keratin treatment: (1) improve my hair so it didn’t seem as damaged, (2) faster drying time, and (3) lessen the frizziness and be mostly straight and smooth. Of those three, the most essential was number 3. As I was getting ready to shampoo my hair, I already knew that it felt better so (1) was taken care of. I thought that having a faster drying time would be awesome. But, I also thought that if it still dried into a frizzy mess, I would have felt I wasted a huge amount of money. [Read more…]
