Keratin Hair Therapy

Well, I'm here to report that I did not have the horrible experience that some people on the webby are reporting with their keratin hair treatment. But I'm also not going to report that it is a miracle hair saver.

Is my hair softer, lighter, thinner, straighter, and easier to manage? Yes, for the most part. did it hold the hair dye better? Yes, definitely.

What it didn't do is transform my dead hair into alive hair. I still need to have several inches cut off from the bottom. There's just no way around it.

And the sooner I get this done, the sooner it can grow back. But I'm still feeling whiny about it. I like my long hair. But what's the point if you can't effectively style 3-4 inches of it?

Last commentary about getting keratin hair therapy done...

Go to a salon that knows what it is doing. Some people may only have to leave it on for 1 day; some have to leave it on for 3 days. It depends how damaged your hair is, the texture etc.

Know going in that you will not be able to wash or put your hair up into a binder in any way for 1-3 days. I didn't know this and it was a pain in the ass to deal with.

Would I do it again? Well, this is supposed to last 6 months. If it lasts even 3 months, I would say it is worth it at $200. But I'm not sure I would do it again.

I think I've heard about this. My nieces tried to convince their mom to pay for it as a Xmas present. Been wondering if it works because I have thick, wavy hair that takes a fair amount of work to tame. I had a hairdresser tell me I'd still have to blow dry and straighten my hair if I had this done so what's the point?

Do you have any before and after pics?

Well every before pic....would be every photo you've ever seen. Haha. But I'll see if I can't snag a decent after pic in the daylight.

you're like butter to me

Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
