Re: keratin @ 12 yrs old
 
Hi,

Please don't do keratin at your age if you mean the kind with formaldehyde in it. Many of the brands out there have come out with "light" versions that claim to be formaldehyde-free. My advice is to use one of those. They probably won't work as well as the original formulas (because in my opinion, it's the formaldehyde that makes these treatments work), but at 12 years old, please don't expose yourself to a carcinogen like formaldehyde.

Also, do you realize that keratin is $200-$400?

Also, depending on what your hair looks like now and how strong of a formula you intend to use, your hair could see dramatic changes.... please do your research before taking the dive!

i don't think you should get that done at 12 either but i can't talk i got my first relaxer at 10....think about it b4 u do it. i got it done for my 20th b-day after being natural for 5 years and it's 9 months later and my curl pattern is not the same. close. but not the same. now it could b from the bleach (never bleach ur hair it thins it out so much....) but i believe it was the brazilian blowout....


i think u'll miss ur hair if u have this done...i know i do.

Maybe have your mom check out the Brazilian blowout Zero...a lady I started going to performs this in her salon and said it's safe.
