Has anyone here tried the new Keratin Infusion treatment by Suave?
I am reading mixed reviews on their site, the good and the bad (and the very ugly). So this treatment is not for everyone. But I would like to share my review.
I apologize in advance if I get confusing during this post, I am under medication for my fibromyalgia pain flares and it is a bit hard for me to focus on my writing
I was due to retouch my Keratin Treatment and now that QOD Max is no longer available I was looking for another route for this. Plus lately my fibromyalgia is making it so hard for me to endure the long process of a Brazilian Keratin Treatment (the long blow drying and flat ironing process). Well, I was lucky to be asked to try the Keratin Infusion Treatment by Suave, and give my review, right on time to treat my hair.
My daughter wanted to try it so I also did the treatment on her.
The box contains everything you need for the treatment. I was surprised on the easy application process compared to length of time it takes to treat with my QOD Max (and other Brazilian Keratin Treatments). This is a 3 steps application. But I think this product have some chemical relaxer as well, it smells like a chemical relaxer.
It will loose your curls, I did it also on my daughter who has VERY curly hair, and she ended up with soft waves. And if you have seen my previews posts my hair is naturally very frizzy curly (look at my avatar picture) , but since I do Brazilian Keratin Treatments, and the treatment has cumulative effects, my curls now are more like "beachy" soft waves. So the treatment just loosen up my waves a bit more.
At the time to style my hair, I noticed my hair had a lot more body than when I do a Brazilian Keratin Treatment. It was also so shiny and soft, I could not stop touching it. The shine is exactly as the shine I get form a Brazilian Keratin Treatment. It did lighten up my hair tone a bit (they tell you this can happen on the instructions and info paper included in the box)
The kit comes with a leave in conditioner that I LOVE. I will be using this leave in conditioner from now on as part of my hair regimen.
On my daughter, I noticed her hair was a bit frizzy on the first 3 days after the application, amazingly after her first wash her hair became smooth and shiny. She is loving it! Styling her hair takes so little time, and she loves that it will not frizz on humidity.
We also use Argan oil in addition to the Leave In conditioner. And we are loving it so far. It has been 2 months and we have not noticed any damage (yet).
It promise you smooth hair for 30 days, well it's been 2 months and hair still smooth and shiny, but we will retouch soon due to the roots. The curls are coming back on my daughter but not as tight as she naturally have them. I found the treatment on Walgreen's for $12, I was more shock on the great price! And the box contain enough product for long hair.
I have to say that the results are pretty close to the results I get from a Brazilian Keratin Treatment, and what I love is that I do not have to apply so much heat (like flat iron my hair on 450 5 to 7 times per hair section!!) to seal the treatment.
But I don't think this treatment is for everyone, I am reading other reviews with awful results. So be aware.
Has anyone here tried it? I added a picture of my result.
