Suave 30 day Keratin Infusion Smoothing System
I had the same horror happen to me two weeks ago! My hair was shiny and relatively straight, but I saw this product in the hair conditioner area of Rite Aid Pharmacy and thought it sounded good. I have blonde hair normally but had been wearing it light brown for about a month when I purchased this product. I read the warnings, and none of them applied to me. So I began step one, carefully following its instructions and excited to see my new smoother hair. what happened in the next 10 minutes could not have been further from this expectation. My hair started to curl up, lose all of its brown colour and i began to worry. I washed out step one, thinking that step two was the key to the magical straightening process, but worried that my straight hair was now kinky. It went from bad to worse. Finishing the third step, my drain was now clogged for the second time with my own hair, and I again pulled gobs of broken hair out of the drain to get the water to run down. Now, I was very worried. I then blow dried my new hair as instructed. But I could not run my fingers through it, and it all was broken and burnt looking. I put a full bottle of leave in conditioner on it, hoping it would be better in the morning. But I woke up with swollen eyes and face, and numb lips. And this was the case every day for the next 4 days. Now I thought, my hair is making me toxic! My hairdresser had sadly advised me on that first morning, after rubbing my hair between his fingers and having it all break off in his hand that I would have to have All of my hair cut as short as possible. And now, after having over a foot of hair cut off I was still being made sick by what was left? How could this get any worse. There is NO way this product should be marketed on the shelf NEXT to the hair conditioning products, and certainly NO way that it should be labelled a ‘smoothing system’. This is extremely misleading, and Unilever should be ashamed of their marketers. It turns out its a chemical straightener and the lame quizzes online and package directions DO NOT clearly outline the risks of this product. I could have lost all my hair! And I am president of a financial planning company, so this is a serious impact to my ability to present myself to the public. In summary, DO NOT USE this product, it is not worth the risk.
