Brazilian Keratin Treatment

My BKT experience

Like most women, I get bored with my hair and like to switch it up every now and then. I’ve heard a lot of good things about the brazilian keratin treatment so I thought, hey why not!
It’s less expensive and better for your hair than the Japanese straightening which really influenced my decision. My hair isn’t crazy curly or anything. I did it b/c I didn’t want to deal with frizzy hair in the summer.
Both Americans and Brazilian salons do the treatment – they use different formulas (or so I’ve been told). I had gone to an American salon.. The particular salon I went to had a big sale for the summer so that’s why I chose the place I went to. A friend of mine had told me that she paid double the price what I paid so I thought it was a good deal.
The whole process took about 2 hours – not that bad. They begin by washing your hair and blowing it out. Afterwards, they put the chemicals on your hair with a brush.
Side note: The smell wasn’t that harsh – just burned my eye a little bit.
After the keratin/chemicals are on your hair, they use a flat iron and go over every strand of hair and your done! (Some salons will blow dry it again after the ironing.)
I was told that I couldn’t wash my hair for 3 days but I went 4 days instead just to be sure. If you hair does get wet, you are to flat iron it ASAP. Also, you’re not to put clips in your hair either b/c that will leave marks in your hair since the keratin is doing it work.
After your 3 or 4 days is up, you can wash your hair. You need to use sulfate free shampoo and conditioner though. This is important b/c the sulfate in regular shampoos will strip the Keratin from your hair and you’ll blow the time and money you just put into it.
I was told that BKT lasts anywhere from 3-6 months – depending on your hair.
So far I’m up to month 2 and absolutely love it! It’s so great not having to fuss with my hair anymore in the morning. You can just wash it and go. I like to blow dry it still.
It takes me less than 10 minutes now to blow it out which is awesome.

    Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now. Keep it up!
    And according to this article, I totally agree with your opinion, but only this time! :)

    You have to express more your opinion to attract more readers, because just a video or plain text without any personal approach is not that valuable. But it is just form my point of view
