Question Home BKT on 4B Hair

I have been reading a lot about BKT treatments, but most are on types 2 and 3 hair. I want to know if anyone has done a BKT treatment on 4B hair and what were the results. Thanks

Hey mama, i'm in the same boat as you.
Check these helpful threads out:

DIYers how do you apply your BKT?

and

I Am Back! with BEFORE & AFTER PICS

I am anxious to know if you give it a try, how it works for you, and etcetera. I'm thinking of giving it a go for the holiday season.

Keep in touch =)

Here's another link with more opinions and how they did it them selves... http://www.longhaircareforum.com/hai...ase-share.html

Hair guru, I have a q: When you first apply the BKT, you flat iron your hair to bond the keratin in your hair. Do you HAVE to keep flat ironing your hair after that? Like, can I just wash my hair and wear it curly every day until it's time to do it again? I'd only be looking to flat iron my hair when I apply the treatment. Have you ever done that, or do you flat iron all the time?

Thanks for your response, and your advice. We love it!

Thank you so much! I am also thinking about trying this for the holiday season, but I might try it sooner; I lose a lot of hair and my hair knots like crazy. I will let you know how it works out and if you try it before me, let me know your results.

Default Just sharing a small story...

Okay, so I decided to take a stroll into the nearby dominican salon (where they do this service a lot)... to see how much it would cost me. The lady told me that because of my hair type (4 b/c) I need to get a relaxer first. I just politely said "Okay, thank you!" and strolled back out the door.

...is she nuts ?!

Well, i'm planning to just take that $ that I was going to give her and do it myself. when I do, I'm definitely going to take pictures.Can't be that difficult, right Hairguru?!

Ya'll be blessed, and have a good day

As soon as I get paid I'm going to buy it and try it, I can't wait until the holiday season.

Default buy it online

on ebay. QOD max sells for 30 bucks including shipping from Keratintoday. He's the top seller on ebay.

As for the "you need a relaxer first" business...she doesn't know what she's talking about! The problem, I've found, with the Dominican salons is that they think you WANT to straighten your hair, when the truth is you just want something to make it softer and shinier and a little looser. Whcih is why it's best to do it yourself. This way you control the outcome!
