How do you get through the 3 days without washing?

Hi, All:

I just got the Coppola keratin last night. It hasn't even been 24 hours yet, and I HATE the way it looks--all flat and limp. I can't figure out how I'm going to get through two more days looking like this...I know some people have said that they've used clips/put their hair in ponytails, etc., but my stylist specifically said not to.

Any tips/tricks to getting through 3 days without washing? I was considering maybe a scarf, but don't think that's exactly a professional look for work...

Thanks!
every stylist will say no as well as every handbook. Doing it anyway will be your choice, as it was mine. I did it myself, so I didn't care. Nothing happens. One person who describes her hair as on the thinner side said she noticed a slight dent, but just flat ironed it out. It really only matters if you got thi streatment to straighten your hair, so a slight dent might bug you. If you got it to smooth your curls, then it won't effect your results. I've done it like 10 xs now, and I've never seen a dent. You really have to make the choice.

Otherwise, there really is nothing to do during the wait.
I've had the Coppola done 3 times (I just had it done last week, so I know the feeling), and the 3-day wait is not that bad. Just forget about your hair for the 72 hours. Patience....

The end result is wonderful. I can air-dry my hair now, or blow it dry in no-time, and it's almost straight - no frizz!! My hair after the Coppola is almost a 2a.

Good luck!!
Hair Type - wavy/curly, fine texture, thin/medium density

Hang in there....you are the only one who notices, believe me....

My hair is between a 2c and 3a...very frizzy if I don't spent at least 45 minutes drying and flat ironing. It took me 20 minutes to blow dry with a round brush. I am delighted with the way it looks and dreading when it washes out in around 3 months.

I did my hair on thursday. I usually just tie a pretty scarf around it like a headband. Since I wear my hair curly, I am not worried about dents. I thought my hair looked totally gross, but I got a ton of compliments on it.

Got to wash my hair today, and it looks great. This is the first time I did it myself (with the help of a friend) so I was a little nervous.
