    Simple treatment, soft results

    I would think of this as more of a deep conditioning treatment. I liked the deep coconut smell of the shampoo and solution however the scent does get much heavier once you apply heat. It takes a bit of time so put a couple hours aside. As for the 48 hours wait time between washes, I am not loving that. I am on my second day of waiting and though my hair is feeling softer I am ready to wash my more. For this reason take into consideration how you part your hair before straightening. I assumed it would be easiest to part it down the center though I normally wear something off center and with my long hair I am now stuck looking like Morticia Adams for two days. My goal is to achieve softer, stronger hair and I feel this product is helping with that goal so far. My hair feels healthier. However, I have only a slight (manageable) wave to my hair. For more dense curls I am not sure how this would work.

    Better than before

    First off I am a Black woman with natural type 4a/b hair that's fine, cottony and shoulder length. This time (#2) when I did the BKT I waited until my hair had stopped dripping but was still very wet when I sectioned my hair into about 20 two-inch sections, which I two-strand twisted before adding the treatment. Twisting my hair helped maintain some moisture while allowing it to dry. When I moreted the last twist I went back to the first twist and added the treatment, never using more than the most that could fit on the tip of my index finger, less if the section was thinner. This technique really helped with an even appropriate level of saturation because while twisting the hair I squeezed out all excess product if there was any and used it on the next section. My hair as a result felt less coated and the brown tinge was lessened. This was done with gloves on, so it’s a great check on over saturation, since it is impossible to tell by just touching the hair if there is too much product. I sat with the treatment on my hair for an additional 30 minutes after I finished my last twist. ( I ate lunch my intention was 15) Starting again with the first twist I began blow-drying my hair on medium (I removed the gloves). My hair felt thicker, about the consistency and texture of nearly dry hair with conditioner left on it. I used more tension on my hair than I had the first time as a result I got my hair straighter. I continued to blow dry my hair working only on the section that had been untwisted and pulling away the sections that had not been untwisted and those that had already been blow-dried. Next I sectioned my hair from front to back and from ear to ear. I then started pressing my hair straight (between 18 and 20 on my gold n hot). The results were PHENOMINAL I got the silky press I had always wanted (I do not go to the salon). My hair does not feel coated as it did before and there is only a very slight brown tinge on my few and far between grays. I will say when I did my hair the first time it was summer and it is now winter and very dry where I live which I am sure is playing a role in my hair remaining straight. It is now day two, and my hair is just as straight as it was yesterday. I wrapped my hair up last night and my hair is still soft silky and straight with some body from the over-night wrap. It looks great. I would definitely do this treatment again. I am only sorry that I have to wash out the keratin tomorrow and start the straightening process again.

    So I bought this hoping it would transform my hair into beautiful touchable straight hair. but No my hair looks dry and damaged from the heat needed for the treatment. I also don't like the texture it left on my hair it feels thick and gross. Maybe I did the application wrong but I don't like the way my hair feels I can get a straighter sleeker look by using my nexxus hair products or getting my hair relaxed using Rusk Anti-curl system. I won't buy this product again.

    Takes time and patience, but made a huge difference

    The skinny: it took a while, but my hair came out frizz-free, shiny and healthy I'm an African-American woman of mixed heritage with extremely thick, type 3C curly hair that frizzes easily. I've tried relaxers in the past, but hated the damage to my hair and scalp, and so I now have completely natural hair. I wear it straightened in the winter, but it frizzes at the least sign of moisture. At moreless than $15 at the drugstore, I figured I had nothing to lose. The instructions aren't difficult,but they are a bit difficult to find (they're on the bottle of keratin treatment). The leave-in treatment makes your hair feel kind of gross after blow-drying, but it's mostly absorbed after flat-ironing your hair. The flat-ironing takes time and patience, since you have to work with small pieces and iron each one 7-10 times. My hair was beautiful when I was done, although it still felt a little coated. After washing my hair two days later, I was thrilled--about 50% of the frizz was gone, and my hair stayed straight even in high humidity! The anti-frizz effects are also evident when I let my hair dry naturally--I have more curls and less frizz. It's been about 5 weeks, and since I only wash my hair 1-2x/week, the therapy is still working. I will definitely try this product again, and would recommend it to anyone with frizzy, unmanageable hair.
