Keratin Complex vs Brazilian

Newbie is very thick, coarse, type 2C as best I can tell with a strong tendency to frizz.

I've had Brazilian Blowouts done in the past and loved them...I would still have to do a quick pass with an iron to straighten, but more than anything else I loved the texture it gave me -- silky smooth hair with no frizz.

My stylist does both the BB and the KC, and she's trying to talk me into doing the KC this time. She said results typically last longer and tendency is for it to make hair straighter than BB. I'll add that my natural curl pattern is not at all attractive -- parts of my hair are very curly while others are just wavy and frizzy. If I had a beautiful, even curl pattern I wouldn't be so inclined to straighten. As it is, I just look like I have permanent bed head!

Anyway, my major hesitation with the KC is the 72-hour wait period. I can normally go 3 days between shampoos, but just how gross does the hair get with the product on it? Has anyone had any experience with both? Pros and cons of each, please. Thanks, and sorry for the long post!
Hi - I just got a keratin complex treatment done on 7/10. So today is the end of my 72 hour period... and I will say it's not difficult at all to refrain from washing. If you are already used to not washing your hair daily (I normally wash once / week), then you will be fine.

Because it is straight following the treatment, it does get a little greasy faster than normal, but nothing crazy. I put on a tiny bit of dry shampoo this morning to go to work and look presentable.

I will say, the most annoying part of this three day period is having to wear my hear down and straight 24/7. I can't wait to put my hair in a clip or ponytail just to not have it hanging straight down by my face! I'm not used to wearing it like this.

FYI - I have similar hair to you it seems. 2c-ish, uneven curl pattern and frizz around my head. Very thick and moderately course. This is my first keratin treatment so I'm anxious to see the results following the first wash! Good luck!
Thanks so much...that's good to hear although, to be honest, I'm not sure how I'm going to go three days without tucking my hair behind my ears!

Would love to hear your thoughts after washing your hair...
