Curious with lots of questions...

I have just taken note of this board and it has piqued my curiosity. Especially when I saw the threads by ghostwriter (?) and Rupert's wife. I am looking at the Global Keratin.


I have found that you can color your hair with the BKT either before or after so that is cool because I love color. But...

1. Is this a "chemical" or plain keratin?

2. Has anyone been able to maintain their curl with the flexibility of wearing it straight after this?

3. Has anyone who is a 4a done this?

4. Has anyone had any damage/breakage from it?

5. If you use a steamer to add moisture/condition your hair can you still use it after the BKT or will that release the keratin?

6. If you use steam hair tools to style your hair i.e. maxiglide or caruso hair setter, can you still do so after the BKT?

7. Has anyone done this at home?

But my experience with this service and I have 4a curls has depended on the brand of product use and the technique.

Take 1:

I was a hair model for a caucasian salon attempting a BKT on a "ethnic hair" for the first time. the used Rejuvenol.

Rejuvenol didn't do much but soften my hair. It washed out within a week. but consider this: I went to a salon unfamiliar with "ethnic hair," and she only had 2 ounces to use on my thick curly mane. I think rejuvenol will slightly loosen your curl, but that's it. However, I can't say for sure because every single person seems to get different results from their BKTs. It really depends on the stylist and the brand you use, and your hair texture. wavy/fine hair will probably get bone straight results.

Take 2. I went to a dominican salon which used a much stronger product, and this time, my 4a curls are now 3bs in some places, but mostly 2cs! I'm not hating the new me, but I'm not in love either. I wanted to keep more of my curl, but whatever...wavy/straigher hair is pretty easy to manage, so it's a good fit for summer.

The shine and softness you get with a BKT CANNOT be beat.

You will have to stay away from like every friggen hair product on the market. Anything with sulfates/salts/chlorides stay away. This means no salt water or chlorine . Since rejuvenol has such a low percentage of formenldahyde it can wash out easily so you want to be careful to use only bkt safe products.

What I miss the most about my pre bkt hair? The volume...you lose a lot of bulk....someone asked me if I had gotten my hair thinned at the salon :/

If/when i do this again, i will do it at home using softliss or Marcia Tiex. The application is really easy. If you can flat iron your own hair, you can do this at home. just turn the fans on and stay near a window. The fumes can get pretty bad if you're not careful.
Marcia Teixeira is the only company that offers 3 different treatment formulas to choose from depending on your needs, it is only sold to salons and to professionals, a "certified" stylist will be able to help you pick the right treatment for you.

Marcia Teixeira Brazilian Keratin Treatments,after care shampoos and conditioners, use only the highest quality keratin available, unlike other comercial keratins, the KERATEC brand uses a patented process to extract the keratin from sheep grown in organic pastures in New Zealand, it is considered "liquid hair".

Marcia developed her Advanced Keratin Treatment for active clients, because it rinses out the same day it will not last as long as the Original BKT or the Chocolate Extreme Defrizzing BKT. It is NOT a chemical,it does not break bonds or restructure the hair, it will slowly wash out......

You will not have the need of deep conditioners...if you choose to use deep conditioners, they will have virtually any negative effect on the BKT.

You can style your hair with anytool you choose,flat irons, curling irons, hot rollers etc....hair is left shinny,flexible,manageable,rejuvenated and FRIZZ-FREE!!!....expect to loose or streach your curl pattern up to 80% with the first treatment..the effect can last from 8 weeks with the Advanced up to 6 months with the Original or the Chocolate.

Trained, "certified" stylists are taught how to correctly use the BKT so there a no fumes or discomfort, you are worth it, allow a professional, who buys the product directly from us to do your treatment....the results will be amazing!

I was none tooo pleased that you recommended this stylist.

My hair is already pretty thin. I just want the option of wearing it straight every once in a while.

The shine sounds great. I love shine.

Do you think if the stylist used more of the Rejuvenol that it would have lasted longer?
