I don't know if it's right for you, but I will say I had the same thoughts about Keratin- that it would smooth my frizz but still allow me to wear my hair curly. I wanted it to make the curls more manageable. I did it the summer of 2011, and my hair still isn't back to normal. Keratin is a STRAIGHTENER, it worked very well for what it was. My straightening time went from 2 hours to 20 minutes that whole summer. I barely had to use any product and I had hardly any frizz. BUT, when I wore my hair curly it was just a beachy wave, not the tight curls I used to have. At this point, almost a year and a half later, my curls still aren't back.
