my bkt is ruined

It has been 3 weeks since my BKT. I LOVED it. It was shiny and wavy and beautiful. Now I have frizz, though it is still lighter and less curly.

What can I do to revive it?

What products should I use??????

Thanks guys!

I actually complained at first because mine made my curls too loose, but now I'm at the 3 week mark and my curls are a tightening up again. The only thing I think i used that could have done it was the Giovanni Tea Tree shampoo....my own fault because i had a feeling it was BKT unsafe....If anyone has any suggestions I'd really appreciate it too!
I've been using the giovanni products too. Jessicurl has this:

Magnesium Sulfate - All natural. This is plain old Epsom salt you’d soak your tired muscles in. The magnesium is a powerful curl enhances, which is why we use it in our styling products.

oops!
and buy the Brazillian Blowout deep moisture mask. It supposedly prolongs the Brazilian Blow out...and while I did not get a BB, but a different BKT...it can't hurt? It's pretty expensive, but if it works I'd be happy.
I think I just did this too. My ends were feeling very dry, so I thought it would be a good idea to condition it. I read the ingredients on my Nexxus Emergencee and didn't see any sodium chloride so I thought I was okay. Well, while I was rinsing it from my hair, I immediately knew I had done something wrong. I literally could feel it stripping the keratin away. I have looked up the ingredients on line, and it appears I need a chemist degree to understand most, but I think the sulforic acid must be the culprit.
Anyways, my hair is actually looking really nice with the curls right now, but it has a lot more volume. I can imagine it will be getting poofy as the humidity starts climbing.
I'm still not sure if it was the nexxus, but I won't be using that again. I guess I will have to look for a better sodium free deep conditioner too.
3B dark brown shoulder length
Co-wash, Living Proof No frizz, Biolage Gel, Giovanni vitapro fusion leave in
I think we three need to get together and put BKT safe products in every local grocery/drug store. My hair is still soft, but has lost some of it's sheen and is DEFINATELY poofing more. granted it's been 90 degrees out every day for the past 4 days, but still!! If it's already coming out at only 3 weeks....how much longer can I expect for it to last. This mess was $280!! I know I sound contradictory because I posted all about how I was bummed my curls were so loose at first, but I was diggin the wash and go hair...not I'm spending time in the morning again, and I DO NOT LIKE IT!
I saw some people here use burts bees.

Where do you get that BB mask? I need it asap!

is it this?
It's on amazon too..probably cheaper there. I'm ordering today! I keep trying crap over the counter, and natural products with ctric acid and other stripping ingredients, which normally make untreated hair shiny....will remove a BKT...so I'm gonna play it safe..my hair today is wavy, but frizzy and not as shiny as it was last week before I used the Giovanni shampoo
The results??

and used it for the first time since I got my BKT 3+ weeks ago....and I have to say this stuff is like giving yourself a mini BKT at home...while I waas seeing more return of my curl and volume ( which I didn't mind)...one use of the BB treatment mask and shampoo...and my hair, somehow, seemed to look just like it did after my post BKT wash....so if you're looking for a BKT pickerupper...this stuff might just be it....I did a prepoo with honey and coconut oil, but this shampoo seemed to be too gentle to wash it all out...so i actually had to use another to get everything out.....otherwise no complaints
Thanks for the update Hairguru...I am picking up the shampoo and conditioner soon (my sister-in-law is at salon) but wasn't sure about the mask....I will let you know what I think. I am glad to hear your feedback ... I've not spent this kind of money on a hair product before. ha ha ha!!!
I used the bb deep conditioner overnight and may hair looked amazing, just like hairguru said!!! Great idea friend!!!!

Only thing is, I have tried using it as a regular condish in the past few days (since I don't love sleeping with a wet goopy head and shower cap) and now the frizzies are back.

Since I can't seem to find anything without sodium to defrizz it, so I'm using an old coney shine serum.

I also tried the coppola keratin infusion last week and I was not impressed. Did nothing and cost $40.

Oh well! I think I need a do-over.....
I'm kind of glad to hear the Coppola stuff didn't work because man i was PISSED after spending the 130 on the BB stuff.

I also need cones to defrizz. Oh Well!!

My only thing is my hair isn't as shiny as I'd like...I want more of a "natural shine," you know? Oh Well! I guess you can't have everything .

I wasn't able to do an overnight treatment with the mask, but I def will this weekend. I swear I am hair obsessed!
uhoh, so I shelled out the money for the morroccanoil masque b/c the stylist recommended it, but now I think it may be not good? here are the ingredients..

Water Deionized (Aqua), Cetearyl Alcohol & Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Cerearyl Alcohol (CS90), Canola Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol and Cetearetg-20, Shea Butter, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, PG-Propyl Silanetriol (proposed), Argania Spinoza Kernel Oil (Argan oil), Butylene Glicol, Acetamide Mea, Steareth-2, Caryocar Brasillense Fruit Oil, Fragrance (Supplement), Peg 60 Almond Glicerides , DMDMH, Citric Acid, D&C Red No 17, D&C Yellow No.11.

], no sodium and one sulfate? and citric acid is bad? I would only be using it once every 1.5 wks... should i just shell out the money for their brand "masque" too? (I did buy the shampoo and cond)[/font]
and the cirtic acid is way at the bottom. I'd still use it, why not?
- just being paranoid...

I just got mine done last thursday and I love it soooo much, I want it to last as long as possible....
I'm 4 weeks in and bummed about the frizz....
So I used the shampoo and conditioner this morning. It was kind of nice getting some SHAMPOO! Who hooo-been a long time since I have had some lather! Then conditioned (not the mask, the regular conditioner). Then did a cool very quick rinse. I scrunched with a tshirt to dry the excess water...then put on gel (one that I used before the BB). I have some "fly-aways" but my hair feels pretty amazing. Softer than before I think. And I think my curls might be slightly loser now as well. Anyway, I am pretty happy with it. I am about 5 weeks into my BB. I went from 3c to some waves when drying naturally.
