Organix Brazilian Keratin Therapy

Like Tree4Likes

I so can't wait to try this! I'm camping out this weekend so I can't do it then.

I flat ironed my hair this week and curled the ends with my 3" curling iron. My husband told me he likes my hair best with a 2b pattern. I so hope this can take my 3a and relax it some.

Quick question....

Do you have to iron your ends straight? Or could I iron them slightly curled under?

When it's straight, my hair goes halfway down my back. I blow dry it with a round brush, flat iron everything except the last couple of inches and then use a 2" curling iron on the ends. It looks great but I'm getting up at the crack of dawn to get to work on time!

I'm dying to try this product, but I'd still like to be able to get that curl at the end. Anyone out there try curling the ends with a curling iron while the product was in their hair? Or has anyone tried just using a curling iron, in general, after the product has been washed out?

That has never happened to me, so i use clips and ponytails, but then again I don't use this product to straighten my hair. I also have really tightly curled hair naturally. If you have fine or wavy hair or you want to use this product to straighten your hair I'd caution against the curling iron. Good Luck!
I just washed out my first try of the treatment. I let me naturally 3a/3b hair air dry, and it didn't take out as much of the curl as I was hoping. I wasn't expecting a miracle or anything, but something around 2 would have been wonderful. Have any of you tried going through the process a second time to see if it would add any extra straightness?
So I tried it this weekend and got....nothing. I have long, dark brown 3b hair. I washed twice with the prep shampoo (This actually worked really well on my hair - made it soft and didn't tangle it). I followed the directions closely. I didn't oversaturate - which, by the way, is really tricky. As I moved through the sections of my hair, adding the product, the sections I had done first started drying a little. It was hard not to go back and add more. In the end, I used about half the bottle.

I blow dried and flat ironed. I wasn't sure how hot my flat iron would get, but I went over each section 6 - 7 times. When I was all done, the brand new tail comb I was using was completely warped from the heat! I also had a fair amount of breakage.

I endured the 48 hours of pin straight, slightly greasy feeling hair as best I could. Somehow I resisted pulling it into a ponytail, though I did put it in a loose braid a couple of times. I didn't really get any kinks, besides over my ears and I flat ironed them out.

I washed it on Sunday with the matching Organix shampoo and conditioner and blow dried it straight, like I usually do. It took me just as long and gave me just as much trouble to do as it usually does.

Final thoughts: The smell wasn't horrible when applying the product. Although it was pretty rank once I started flat ironing it. Based on the reviews I read, I had hoped this product would ease my curls a little, make my hair look healthier, protect it from the humid frizzies and/or cut down on drying time. I can't say that I got any of those results in the slightest. My hair today looks just like it did on Thursday, before I used the treatment.

So, yah, I'm dissappointed I haven't decided yet whether or not I'll give it another try this weekend. I do still have half a bottle - I just don't know if I have the patience!
The beginning of may I regrettably did the organix bkt (btw my hair type is 3b). After doing the complete process, blow drying my hair straight looked the same as it did prior to the treatment. And when I flat ironed my hair it looked so flat and lifeless, just like it did during the 48 hour waiting period. Not only that but, my hair was more frizzy after the treatment than it ever was. If I left my hair to air dry, the top 3/4 of my hair would dry pretty straight but fluffy and frizzy. The bottom 1/4 dried in 3b curls just like my hair was prior to the treatment. Since I did not care for my results, I did not care about not using sulfate sodium free products. I do use sulfate free shampoo, but I was not watching for sodium free.

Now. Fast forward. The treatment is supposed to last 30 days right? Well according to that, my hair was supposed to return to normal around May 31....It is now June 29 and my hair is still the same and horrendous. I can't do wash and go's anymore because the 3/4s of it still dries more straight and the underneath is curly. I'm so sad about it, I want to cry. I wish it could go back to the way it was. I use curlformers (the biggest curl size) to get my hair into more uniform bigger curls, as well as straighter without heat.

Again even after the treatment should be gone, my hair is more dry than it used to be, more frizzy, poufy, and most of my curls are gone I don't know how to get my hair back the way it was...
I was a bit skeptical about trying this product as I have never had a BKT before. My normal 3c/4a hair is tex-laxed and color treated with semi-permanent hair color and is in pretty good condition. I am 2 1/2 months post relaxer and decided to give this a try to stretch my relaxer. I am so glad that I did. I only used about half of the bottle and my hair is slightly past APL and my hair results are silky straight, bouncy hair. I followed the directions fully using two different flat irons with 7 total passes (3 passes with Solia Pink 1-inch on 450 and 4 passes Remington T-Studio Pearl Ceramic 2-inch on 450); I used two different flat irons as they both offer something different for my hair. That night, I slept on a satin pillowcase and I had a few bends when I woke up the next morning. However, I went over my hair with my Solia Pink on 370 for 2 passes each and my hair is even silkier and bouncier than the day before.

I think that if you follow the directions to the full extent and not deter away from them, you will have great results. Also, you do not want to over-saturate the hair and make sure that it is 80% dry and not completely dry; the hair should still be slightly damp when applying the treatment. I believe that if you deter away from this step, you will get greasy, weighed down hair. Also, I have read reviews on other sites where some people would actually condition their hair after the clarifying shampoo step and before the treatment..., I believe this too can cause that greasy, weighed down feeling and poor results.

Hope this helps.

Hey everybody! Ive never actually posted on this b4 haha i usually just check out what everyone is.talking about and looking at some hair tips and whatnot. But i must say i used the organix 30 day smoothing treatment from walmart and i enjoyed the result suprisingly better than my $150 salon kerstin treatment with FORMALDEHYDE yep. FORMALDEHYDE She swore there was none. But customers walking into the salon complained their eyes and throats burned and actually left!!! Using the Organix didnt have much of a smell. Not overpowering. No crusty crusts after blowdrying. I was pleasantly suprised to see shiny, straight, frizz free from root to tip!! It was literally an answer to my prayers.... haha on my birthday! After using the $150 global keratin my hair was fluffy, frizzy, absolutly dull and dry. Un attractive. So i must give Organix my props cause i like this $13 treatment lots better!
*One tip. I have tons of hair but i only used half the bottle and im saving for next month. It worked just fine with that amount! Make sure you DO NOT OVERCOAT THE HAIR! Thats when it becomes dull, flaky, brassy, and frizzy.

I did the organix treatment about a month and a half ago. I'm a 4a/b and my hair was a nightmare to detangle in order to blow dry and flat iron. It felt as if each strand of hair was crying cuz of the amount of heat. Unfortunately I did the treatment when was humid out so my hair wasn't super straight. I only ended up leaving it on for a day cuz it was too poofy . The only results I noticed was that my hair was easier to detangle when it was wet. I do still have half the bottle left so I'll give it a try later in this year when I feel like straightening my hair again and when the weather is not so opposed.

Try to detangle your hair in the shower having the water go down your hair and DO NOT ball the hair up ontop of your head, just stroke it thru trying to keep it detangled the whole time whilst shampooing. It helped me combat tangles from the shampoo. And then i sectioned my hair and applied the bkt to my hair. I also used a blowdryer attachment comb which seriously helped.

Hi,

I've done my research and decided to try the product. I've heard so much about BKT but I've also heard about the potential negative side affects. I'm looking for a different hair style as well as more manageable hair. I've had it up to here with losing some of my length due to curly tangles and knots.

The product smells great, easy to use and you see an immediate different in the moisture levels of your hair. Because you need to penetrate the treatment into your hair using heat, it boosts the moisture levels automatically. Once I ran the flat iron over once, my hair was silky soft and smooth.

I didn't even use half of the bottle, I have enough left for a 2nd treatment and I'm wondering if I used enough. But the instructions state NOT to over saturate the hair.

The test is after the first 48 hours. You have to wait until the treatment works into the hair cuticle's memory bank for the straightness, afterwards, wash it out and re-blow dry and flat iron. I'm in Chicago, it's summer, hot and humid. I decided to wrap my hair last night, add a stocking cap and put on one of my infamous wigs just to ensure that my hair doesn't get attacked by the humidity. The instructions say NOT to get your hair wet, not to put in any NONE straight hairstyles - no pony tails, no pulling hair behind the ears, curls - nothing.

The instructions also advise to do up to 7 passes while flat ironing. I think I went over my entire head 2x at 3 passes each.

So far so good. I'm going to visit my stylist tomorrow to get a trim (hate to see almost an inch of my hair cut off, but my ends are shot) and will have her go over my hair again with up to 3 passes before I wash the treatment out the following day.
YES the Organix Keratin treatment. I had blond hair, i did a strand test.. no problem, did the whole treatment ORANGE HAIR!!!!!!!!!! Think Ziggy Stardust Orange!!!

I did the treatment on myself this weekend. I have 3a/3b fine blonde hair with natural red highlights, so upon reading advice on some of the reviews, I colored my hair a couple days prior with a light ash (champagne) tone in order to avoid the dreaded "orange" hair.

When I washed my hair with the clarifying shampoo, I was careful to keep my hair straight and combed it through with a wide toothed comb before rinsing. This made it super easy to comb my hair out after I got out of the shower.

Because I had had a BB a couple of times (one well done, the other not) I knew to make sure I didn't oversaturate my hair with the product and to do very small sections at a time using a 1" wide natural fiber paint brush (it's all I had ). I used two hot irons, one set at 430 and did about 7 passes, and did a couple other passes using my CHI which I believe is about 350 degrees. It does smell a lot like sugar cookies as others have said. I ended up only using aboug 1/3 of the product (I have hair just to my shoulders).

My hair was a little greasy but not too bad, since I was careful not to oversaturate--so the 48 hour waiting period wasn't horrible. It DID change my hair color back to where it was prior to me toning it down with the ash coloring. Pretty weird but I'm so glad I did it--otherwise it definitely would be pretty brassy, but now it is just as it was before, lighter with more redish tones.

I've washed it twice since then. Definitely softer and no frizz. Not as straight and flat (which I was hoping to avoid) as the BB's I have had, but just softer, slightly looser curls. I'm pretty happy with the results. I think next time I'll be sure to put more product on the ends as they seem to be a little frizzier than the rest of my hair (maybe from the heat?).

Anyway...going to get my first Diva haircut today. Wish me luck!
I went by a Giant Supermarket in Virginia and they have ALL their Organix products on sale for $4.99. That includes the 30 Day Smoothing Treatment, a savings for $9 off the regular price! The shampoos and conditioners are regularly $6.99, so it's only a $2 savings. I really like the coconut mask conditioner!
I have basically zero experience with and chemical straighteners or dyes or treatments. I don't even blow dry or straighten my hair. I think I have somewhere between 3b/c curls, but it's coarse and dry and oh, so thick.

I don't want stick-straight hair, but I wouldn't mind a little less curl. I mostly want to use the treatment to add shine and subtract frizz. So here are my questions to those who've used it:

1. Should I still leave it in for the full 48 hours if I don't want completely straight hair?
2. Do I still flat iron it completely straight for the waiting period?
3. Any other special instructions from those people who haven't wanted completely straight hair (I noticed hairguru mentioned that she uses it to defrizz.)

Also, my hair is medium brown, so I'm not too concerned about the color issue.

Remember, I've absolutely zero experience with treatments and dying, because my hair is already so dry and coarse I was always afraid chemicals would make it worse.
Thanks so much if you are able to offer help/advice!
Ok ladies, I bought my Organix shampoo & conditioner about 2 weeks ago and have used it a few times per week along with a really good deep conditioning treatment by garnier fructis to help strengthen my hair and repair any damage... which i feel will help in achieving a much better, healthier result from the Organix 30 day keratin therapy treatment.

Back in April 2011, I had the Copolla Keratin treatment done in a salon for my wedding (bad choice to have it done the DAY OF the wedding) It was horrible, the long hours in the salon let alone the nasty smell of the chemicals plus crazy price -- never again!! -- (Im italian/sicilian) I have very curly 3b frizzy medium long hair) Well, last week I purchased Organix 30 day keratin and decided to use it lastnight.. So far, my experiance has been great.

- Putting the product into my hair was no problem, then blow drying it and flatironing it was a bit exhausting but nothing too drastic. The blow drying process was faster then ever before and my hair was LESS FRIZZY. There were no harsh chemical smells, no burning -- nothing. It had a bearable smell which reminded me of a burnt coconutty suntan oil. I did not overload the product into my hair and my hair does not feel as though I have a "helmet" on as i have read in other online reviews. My hair is stick straight, thick and flowy and soo soft BUT you can feel the "waxyness" in your hair as you run your fingers through it. When I finished, my hair was a tiny tiny bit waxy/greasy but nothing unbearable.

- Today makes Day 1 of having the product in my hair, it still feels flowy and is still straight after sleeping on it lastnight. Tomorrow night i will be washing my hair out to see what my results will be like. *So far, i feel it has been worth the $15. My hair is noticibly softer and silky, looks healthy and is super straight and frizz free.. looking forward to seeing my results! (sorry for the super long review, just wanted to explain everythingggg)

Feel free to send me any questions or anything :] Hope this helps!

Is there anyway to use this product just to give u smooth silky curls w/out frizz? I dont want frizz..
I used organix keratin for the first time on Sunday. (dyed my hair friday)
I have not yet wet my hair I'm going to wait a few more days. My hair is so straight and smooth I don't want it to go away! I do have some waves on the roots. It didn't flatten all curl, but did a pretty good job. It feels like the first days after relaxing hair. The process took about 2 hours, my friend helped me flat iron.
I have 3c, super curly natural hair. I was thinking of relaxing but wanted to give keratin a try. (I really appreciate the price of this product) If it last for 30 days I may be hooked!
My hair color did change a bit, I dye my hair brown to cover gray. It now looks like high lights! So not a bad look.

Has anyone dyed their hair while using organix keratin ? Do I have to reapply the keratin after dye or will it last as long as I use the sulfate free shampoo?
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
I really think that alot of people don't know what their doing, or they are applying WAAAAAYYY too much product.
First off I have 4b hair. This product made my hair feel like silk. It has an amazing shine and it's flowy and light. It gorgeous. It didn't flake, or discolor my hair. It's not dry, it just feels really good. I think I had a near perfect experience
Anyway, I read a lot of reviews saying not to use a lot of product. DONT USE A LOT OF PRODUCT. People getting that horrendous smell, hair feeling greasy and weighed down, smoking flat iron..they use way too much product. It is kinda liquidy so I literally used a little "dap" and spread it on the two inch section and combed it thru. You don't need more than that. Seriously. Your hair should NOT be soaked with the product. Oh yeah, I also only applied to the "leave out" portion of a hair weave. It took a total of about an hour and a half. So I can see how it can be tedious for a whole head.
Anyway to avoid this being long (too late), my opinion/review:

1. apply with an applicator/color brush. Only dip the tip of the brush in the solution (which I poured into a bowl) and stretch that little amount onto the two inch wide section of your hair. Rub and comb the solution thru. That's ALL you need.
2. I thought I didnt use enough at first. That's how little I used
3. If you don't use too much, it doesn't smoke that much while flat ironing. It doesn't smoke anymore than if you flat ironed your hair with a Garnier Straightening Serum. All products smoke when flat ironed.
4. I didn't smell anything. It smelled like burnt hair. The same smell when you normally flat iron or press your hair. (Black girls know what smell I'm talking about). Actually the product smells kinda good, but I couldn't really smell it.
5. I used a fan blowing the smoke away from me into an open window. Maybe that's why I didn't smell anything. But Yeah I think a lot of people exaggerate or like I said, don't follow the instructions. DO NOT OVER SATURATE THE HAIR
6. Dont get it on your skin, but try to get it on the roots. I didn't apply it to my roots really and they frizzed while sleeping. But the rest of the hair was perfect.
7. It will leave bends in your hair if you pin it or tie it down too long. But you can flat iron it out. For us black girls, creases in your hair is very common actually if you tie it down, or put in a ponytail.
8. My hair blends perfectly with the weave
9. It feels light and wispy and flows in the wind. I don't have to constantly put my hair back in place to make sure my tracks aren't showing.
10. My friend was here and she didn't smell anything either
11. Haven't washed it out yet, so not sure how it will change the curl pattern. But it was so worth it. But don't get it if you havent done your reasearch and don't know what your doing.
12. I'm sure its tedious for a full head of natural hair. Be prepared. Like I said, for me it was only the leave out hair for a weave.
13. U have to use a Flat Iron. I tried it with my maxi glide at first, but it didn't straighten well. Something about the flat plates like seals it to your hair. You can see it as you straighten like your hair just gets shiny and really straight.
14. I got the results I was hoping for! Totally worth paying the $15 bucks and doing it myself versus paying $300+ at a salon, which is probably a harsher treatment.
15. I love it! And will probably use again when I want to explore my straight options. Just not a lot of product. And I would only do my whole head if my hair is like BSL and I'm not wearing a weave:-) Good luck, research, and follow instructions.
Yes! That is the point of the product. Depending on how curly vs kinky your hair is, it probably wont straighten it all the way. It will be curly still, just more defined and no frizz.
4a-4b hair. Not sure yet so I'll just say both!
so excited about my smooth straight hair. Not sure how long it will last but so far I'm on week two! Yes I do have to flat iron, but it looks great when i finish! It was very easy to apply. the hard part was flat ironing, I had my friend help me. I ussually wear my hair natural (4b-c) , but wanted to try a straight style. It's awesome and inexpensive compared to BKT at a salon. Felt as good as relaxing my hair, hope it really is not damaging. I will update. I did not smell fumes just a very coconuty scent.
My hair is super dry , so I didn't have the greasiness people reported. Results were great so far.
Try adding a tablespoon of salt to your shampoo. I read that a couple people did that and it helped there hair revert back to its normal texture.

The beginning of may I regrettably did the organix bkt (btw my hair type is 3b). After doing the complete process, blow drying my hair straight looked the same as it did prior to the treatment. And when I flat ironed my hair it looked so flat and lifeless, just like it did during the 48 hour waiting period. Not only that but, my hair was more frizzy after the treatment than it ever was. If I left my hair to air dry, the top 3/4 of my hair would dry pretty straight but fluffy and frizzy. The bottom 1/4 dried in 3b curls just like my hair was prior to the treatment. Since I did not care for my results, I did not care about not using sulfate sodium free products. I do use sulfate free shampoo, but I was not watching for sodium free.

Now. Fast forward. The treatment is supposed to last 30 days right? Well according to that, my hair was supposed to return to normal around May 31....It is now June 29 and my hair is still the same and horrendous. I can't do wash and go's anymore because the 3/4s of it still dries more straight and the underneath is curly. I'm so sad about it, I want to cry. I wish it could go back to the way it was. I use curlformers (the biggest curl size) to get my hair into more uniform bigger curls, as well as straighter without heat.

Again even after the treatment should be gone, my hair is more dry than it used to be, more frizzy, poufy, and most of my curls are gone I don't know how to get my hair back the way it was...
