After lurking here reading about the great benefits of BKT, I finally took the plunge and had mine done today. For this first time, I had it done professionally just so I could see it done the right way
. I went in fully intending on getting "Brazilian Blowout' but he ended up talking me into the Marcia Texari (sp?) one...he said it lasts longer. (btw, OMG!!! my hair is perfect! even with the keratin still in it!!! It actually has movement~ SWISH!!! )
My hair is ummm? 2a and 3a...its a combo of straight and then curly underneath. It is very thick, resistant, but no really coarse. Its a total PITA, impossible to comb. Please dear God let this BKT thing work for me...sigh.
So....he did not try to sell me any keratin shampoos, told me to use sulfate free.
My question is:
Do you think the shampoos/condishioners with keratin actually stretch treatment time? Which brands do you'all use?
Ghost Poster and AphroDiva...you guys are my BKT heros...thanks SO much, ladies, for all the DIY info you have given.Thanks to you I knew I needed to rough up my hair a bit before my treatment sooo I went ahead and put a cheap relaxer in it (which didnt work...infact I think my hair actually scoffed at the relaxer
It is very pricey so I think I will be doing my own BKT's in the future
I cant wait for day 4 to wash
I will update again then.
Happy Hair to all
