Uncurly Do it yourself Keratin Treatment?
 
Uncurly Do It Yourself Brazilian Keratin Straightener

I was wondering if anyone has tried this?

The other one I lookd at was Salon Favorite.. not sure what to use!!

I actually bought this last week. I colored my hair Friday morning before and planned to do this Saturday morning. I ended up doing it Friday night. I was due to wash it out tomorrow night. I couldn't wait. My hair was quite greasy. The end result...love it! I've never had a keratin treatment before. But, just blow dying my hair looks like I flat ironed it. Only time will tell now how long it will last. I used bout 2-3 oz, so I can get 3-4 treatments out of it.

Sorry to be "lurking," but I was googling 'Uncurly' to see how a link displayed, saw your comment, and couldn't resist putting in my two cents. First of all, I'm glad you liked your results. Nothing makes me happier than seeing people get the kind of benefits I get from a keratin treatment without having to spend several hundred dollars. Once I tried keratin on my crazy hair, there was no going back, but $400 every few months was not happening.

Second, you mentioned that during the curing period your hair felt greasy and that ultimately you washed it out a little ahead of schedule because of that. Been there, done that. Two thoughts for the future: while the curing period can feel a little greasy, sometimes it's more so than it needs to be because of too much product being applied (doesn't require as much as you might think,but all hairs need some) and not enough flat-ironing during the application process. We always say iron until you notice a visibly significant reduction in the steam coming off, at which point there's usually a palpable change in hand-feel. The hair becomes less 'waxy' to the touch. While we emphasize this in the instructions, there's no substitute for experience, which you now have.

Second, as for longevity, washing out early can reduce it,but since keratin is TOTALLY individualized in terms of how it takes to each person's hair, there's no precise tradeoff. But I get that sometimes you've got to do what you've got to do! Again, thanks for your kind words about Uncurly. They made my day! Shelley Parker, Uncurly.com

I just ordered Uncurly Keratin treatment and will be applying it to my type 3b curly hair in the next couple of days. I am growing out my hair from years of straightening. I have not had my hair straightened in a year so the frizz and tight curls at the root area is shocking because I have not dealt with it in years. However, I want to embrace my curls and natural hair and make it the best it can be without having stick straight hair. I hope this works!

I have had a salon previously apply a Keratin treatment unsuccessfully. I honestly do not know what product they used but I could not tell any difference after two hours of application. I decided to take matters into my own hands and try Uncurly Keratin Treatment on my own. I will let you know how things go! I have a very hot iron and have read the instructions over and over so I will be abiding by the Uncurly instructions. Fingers Crossed :)

I am just curious as to the type of your hair? I have 3b hair. AKA...insanley curly! Is yours as curly as mine? Wondering if I will be as satisfied with Uncurly Keratin Treatment as you are.

Thanks for the input! I actually went and got my hair cut a few days ago and told my hair dresser what I did. She was impressed with my results and how soft my hair was (almost too soft, it kept slipping out from her fingers a she was cutting)! Anyways, I told her I used 2-3 oz and she said my hair would need 1.5 oz, at most. So, next time, I will alter my technique and see how it goes.

Uncurly worked better for me than Brazilian Blowout
 
I used Uncurly 2 months ago, love it, blocks humidity well which is my biggest need, I live in FL. I can wear hair straight or curly and application was easy. Gives my hair a polished look. Very good value/bargain.

I have used Uncurly twice. The first time lasted about 5 months. Completely loved it. Keratin changed my life--my hair went from being an embarrassment that I was always self-conscious about to looking great all the time. So I knew I would keep using it forever, but it cost me $400 each time I went in. I'm a nurse and three of the gals I work with used this and loved it, their hair looked great, so that was enough proof for me. I can't tell you how happy I've been with it, and above all, with the money I saved. I had used two different at-home keratin (ha!) products before--don't remember their names, one was from Sally's and one was from CVS, and both looked good for 3 days so I got excited, but once I washed them out, my hair was back to usual. No change, which was frustrating after I spent the time carefully ironing them in.

I should also say that Uncurly makes my hair smooth to the touch, which I have NEVER had before, since it's naturally coarse. The humidity resistance is superb. I mean, nothing will totally block it when there's visible steam outside like after a rain in the summer, but the effect is so minimal now, and a few quick whacks with the iron is all I need to get it back if that happens. But in general, it stays put. That's what it's all about for me. Plus I can go from wet hair to out the door in waaaaay less time--I used to spend an hour and a half with that, now it's like 20 minutes blow drying and flat ironing combined, and it lasts for days. Maybe I'll iron 2-3 minutes on morning when I don't shampoo.

I was worried about it being too straight like it was the first time I got a Brazilian Blowout, but that hasn't been a problem. I can control the degree of straightness with styling. Sometimes I even wear it curly, or straighten just the bangs. This is fantastic stuff. Strongly recommend.

Does the hair go back to curly after a while. I was looking at this product but there hasnt been too much info about it. i would like to try it out in the future but after my pravana perfection episode i am weary about trying new/not well reviewed keratin treatments.

I tried the contact the company via their website but so far i havent gotten a response:sad10:

Here is my 2 cents for the day lol

I found this thread, while doing some keratin alternative google work. I then went to find this Uncurly website (only 37,000 pages views). Also - they use a video from the Today show - showing a professional Keratin treatment - not their product??

All of the people that have posted about using this product on this thread, joined the same month as the post.... and only have one post.

Sounds fishy to me.

(I signed up for this website, just so I could post a word of caution)

Now... on to find something else. lol

I actually purchased uncurly based on ohiomom's post. I will post about my experience after using uncurly

Review
 
I've noticed a lot of the same things you have all pointed out about Uncurly- the website is a little odd and this thread is a little odd- but instead of posting about it here I contacted them directly. It can be scary to order or try products that don't really have any reviews and aren't being sold on a huge website. After I emailed with them a few times I felt more comfortable trying out the product. From what I can tell they are a very small company just starting out- which if you can imagine is very difficult. Even so they got back to me very quickly and were professional with their communication.

I just tried this product out and I'm posting a separate thread for my review since it's a bit long. I'm really happy with my results, so if you're interested in trying Uncurly out you might want to see how it worked out for me.

I've been looking for a new treatment to do, & have been lurking through a few other threads on other brands/products.
I just used the NuNAAT keratin treatment about 5-6 days ago, & while the results were FAB, it turned my hair orange :( Not as obnoxious as the Organix version (now THAT was straight up burnt orange, & this time around it was just a light orange, just like a strawberry blonde that went a bit brassy). Which was also odd, since my hair was a medium burgundy brown, but i thought maybe it was just the fact that it was a demi that made it easier to pull the color out. Who knows.

I'm interested to see how the product reviews go if more people use this. It's more affordable than others I've seen, but I'm always worried about color change. Has anyone who has used this experienced that color change? I'll keep lurking on this threat :)

I had a huge problem with color change with the Ion brand keratin I used to use. I assume the formula is pretty similar to the Organix kind. The color of it was actually kind of a caramel color, but I always thought my hair looked orange from the high heat of my flat iron. I'm not really sure- if you look at the pictures of my hair in my separate review of this product you can see how yellowish it looks. However, my roots are my natural dirty blonde color and Uncurly didn't turn them orange. As far as I know keratin shouldn't change the color of your hair- the last time I got my hair cut my stylist was pretty concerned that it changed my color so much. That's part of the reason I wanted to try something a bit better.

The color of the Uncurly treatment is light purple. I'm not sure why its that color, but I sort of assumed having it purple would maybe neutralize any kind of burnt yellow. That's probably not true but I felt a lot better about putting that in my hair than the caramel colored Ion!

I'm really happy with my results with Uncurly- I had planned to buy some 200 dollar bottle of QOD or something because I was sick of my results with Ion. But 80 dollars seems like a great deal in comparison. Hope this helps!

Uncurly review
 
It did nothing for my hair at all. I used their extra strength hot iron, as my sedu did not get that hot.
I only put a little bit on, and stopped when the waxy feel left, and the steam went down.
I washed my hair with their shampoo on the fourth day, and it looks exactly the same as it did four days earlier.

roflol123 03-17-2014 06:48 PM

Hi! I used this last week and let it air dry and my hair was the same as it was before. I do understand that it isn't going to take all the curl away but there was literally no change in my hair at all. I'm trying to reduce the heat use on my hair so blow drying it isn't what I really want but if I have to do that then so be it. I'm thinking I didn't put enough in it the first time so do you think it would be safe to use this again a few days after the first appliance? Thanks!
