A few days ago, I decided to end the battle with my hair and have the Nanokeratin treatment done on it. You remember the Brazilian Blowout? Well this is very similar and is of the same concept except it uses the all-natural protein of Keratin as opposed to the damaging chemicals or whatever was in the 'Brazilian Blowdry' which caused it to be recalled - yikes!
I was in the salon for about 4 to 5 hours on Tuesday. I know. Cray. It was a lengthy process, and after the treatment is over you have to wait 72 hours as the keratin is sealed into your hair. No water, no bobbi pins, no hair grips, no hair ties or headbands, nothing! for 72 hours. After the 72 hours are up, you are finally allowed to wash your hair and style it how you like. I am looking forward to 6 to 9 months of frizz free, shiny, healthy hair! Wahooo!
--FAST FORWARD SEVERAL DAYS--
It is now the 21st July, almost a week since I did the keratin treatment. I have now added the picture you see above - sorry about the awful quality, as you can see it's an Instagram selfie! That, my friends, is what my hair looks like now WITHOUT the use of products or anything. I literally haven't done anything to my hair except wash it. The treatment transformed my hair! Literally no frizz. No tangles. Just soft, natural looking waves without even trying. I am in love with my new hair. It feels so much lighter and healthier - it is a few inches shorter now as well - and I cannot stop touching it!
