Hair looking blah as Keratin fades?

I got a keratin treatment back in September, and now that it's February, my hair isn't looking so good. Much of the treatment seems to have faded--my hair frizzes almost as much as it did pre-treatment, but my curls haven't really returned to their 3a/b state (they're looking 2a/bish. It's also getting increasingly difficult to straighten them. My hair currently hangs down my back, and I plan on getting a few inches chopped off this weekend to fresh things up a bit. What I am wondering is--is this typical? Will my curls ever return to normal, or will I need to grow all this out and start over? Have any of you had similar experiences?

Nope, your curls probably won't return if they haven't by now. That's why I've tried to get the message out that the BKT curl relaxation is often permanent, in spite of what the manufacturers, retailers, sales reps, or salons/stylists tell you. The finer your hair texture, the less likely the curl is to return.

I avoid any and all oil in my products--oil absolutely kills my curls. I don't know how anyone uses products with oil.

The permanent nature of the curl relaxation works well for me. I've been BKTing for years, and I love it. Because it's permanent, I only have to do my roots now. One application is all my hair takes, but I wear my hair curly, not straight.
OK, I admit it.....I'm an alias! I wasn't born with the name Honeycurls!
Dood, get over it; there's no time limit on lurking.

I so busy runnin' allllllll over the place and ain't nobody chasin' me!

I am on the same timeline, Brazilian blowout in late sept and dealing with the post bb hair now- I am convinced that what I thought would be a 3-6 month risk is a 3-6 year consequences. I think i will have to wait for my hair to grow out I would give anything to have my hair back
