Unhappy

I am scheduled to get the keratin treatment tomorrow but am really nervous. I have wavy hair and the hairdresser told me I would still have wave-but no frizz..I currently straighten it every few days but it's always frizzy...Does anyone still have wavy hair after getting this done?
Also--is there any concern with hair loss? I had a baby 4months ago ago and I'm losing a lot of hair now. Just wondering if this is going to make it worse.
And my last question is about the waiting the 3 days...How do you shower/wash your face? How serious is if you use a hair band?? It's going to be really hot this weekend and not sure how that will work with this treatment. So nervous!

Default Questions re: poo/cond after keratin treatment

I had the Coppola keratin treatment about a week ago and I am totally in love with it. My question is, I DO understand that we need to use non-SLS shampoos. My hairdresser said I HAD to give up my old poo & cond, and I get the shampoo part, but I don't understand why I can't use my old conditioner, as I later learned, via the Internet, that conditioners are SLS-free anyway.

I was encouraged to buy the mega-expensive salon products, which I did, except I just don't like them, I've realized. I can cope with the shampoo. But why can't I use my old conditioner?

Anyone know?

They're just trying to make more money. You can use any shampoo you want. The thing to avoid is sodium in the products. That's why they say stay out of the ocean, pools and be careful with sweating.

My hair is fine and if it's not clean, it's limp and flat. Their shampoos don't clean enough for me. If you read the labels, most Suave shampoos don't have sodium. I picked up Finesse from Big Lots for $3. There are lots of others. Even if you use a shampoo with sodium, it won't wear off immediately, just a little faster.

My stylist uses the brush tool that stylist usually use to apply color to the hair. She brushes it on at such a fast pace that I feel like she isn't putting enough on the hair because she spills it on the floor! The treatment is a brown, watery liquid ( I think this is because she uses the one that smells like chocoate?).
When I had the Coppola, I didn't smell anything. When I had the Brazilian Blowout, the cocoa smell was intense. The fumes were too. Both were applied with a color brush. I think Coppola is a white creamy liquid. When I had the Coppola, the stylist did a good job and took her time. The one who did the Brazilian did not. I know how you feel and that's the reason I don't like stylists. I've been fried and scalped by 'experienced stylists' too many times. Now that I've seen the treatment, I'll just do it myself from now on.

DIY Coppola:

Do you buy it off of eBay? I see there is someone who sells 2 oz bottles for 40$, just wondering if this is legit.


My first post, also, nice to meet everyone, I usually browse but don't talk

Femmefatale is the only one I see selling it on ebay. That's who I bought from. She has a 99.7% approval rate and lots of those comments are from people who bought Coppola. I haven't used mine yet. Is it legit? I think so, but can't really be sure, but there is another thread where someone paid for a salon to do Coppola and said it had a strong chocolate smell. That is not Coppola, so even going to a salon and paying $300, you might not get what you think you're getting.

That's funny, Finesse IS my favorite shampoo. I have adapted to the non-SLS poos OK - I did buy the Pureology, and that's OK. I also found a non-SLS shampoo at Whole Foods ("Depth") which is also non-SLS and is $10, still pricey but hey. It's 27 for the Pureology, same bottle size.

Great, no one told me about going in the ocean. I swim in the Gulf several times a week. It's been OK so far. I do rinse it out right there at the beach and put in some Chi oil.

Thanks for the info! Appreciate it!

Did you also have to buy a special flat iron or you can use any flat iron?

My stylist used the same brush yours did but she did it with very small pieces. My entire process took 4 hours and yes the treatment was brown & watery.

This process does not make your hair poker straight like the Japanese treatment...you will still have to blow it out but it takes a lot less time and there is no frizz.

Also--is there any concern with hair loss? I had a baby 4months ago ago and I'm losing a lot of hair now. Just wondering if this is going to make it worse.

This I am not sure about

And my last question is about the waiting the 3 days...How do you shower/wash your face? How serious is if you use a hair band?? It's going to be really hot this weekend and not sure how that will work with this treatment. So nervous!

I used a shower cap to shower and wash my hair...let me tell you after 2 days of my hair hanging in my face, it was such a relief to put the shower cap on...I just made sure I was as quick as possible. I got my treatment done on 6/11/09 and it was rainy and miserable...I had to walk around with an umbrella even for a drizzle and I am so not that girl LOL

Default Coppolla Keratin Treatment

I'm a stylist at K CO Design in Baltimore, and we now carry the Coppolla Keratin Treatment. The results have been amazing. It's an EXCELLENT service for anyone with curly, frizzy, or just plain unruly hair. While it is NOT a hair straightener, your curl WILL soften, and it WILL return. I have a client who I usually have to book off a full hour to blowdry her hair smooth. When she came back 3 days later for her complimentary blowdry, it took me 12 minutes with just a paddle brush and NO styling product in her hair. Other clients who have curly hair have learned to love their curl again, and the hair is touchable because it's not loaded up with silicone products meant to keep from getting frizzy.

Default 3c hair to ??

hi! i have 3c hair and dont get me wrong i just LOVE it! its so fun! and when its blown out straight {i do that once every two months maybe} its pin straight. i heard of this treatment and have been doing research and one aspect of it that i love is that it "fades" away so my curl would come back. i have some days when my hair is really good {sometimes it looks good with frizz} and other days when its just plain awful! i was wondering if anyone with 3c hair like mine had the treatment done and had before and after shots. i dont want to get rid of my curl, i just want it a tiny drop looser and the frizz gone. i dont want to relax my hair though. ive never had any chemical in my hair, no straighteners, no relaxers, no color, no nothing. the thing also is, some days my curl is very tight and some days my hair is just a mes also. what i do when i come out of the shower is use the devacurl angel all over my head and its wet and flat for about 4 hrs then i have to go into the bathroom and flip my head over and flip it back so many times and poof it up. let me know please!!

also three pix that i attached i realize have no frizz in them. those are my good days without frizz but very tight curls. the first day is normally like that but its too tight and too attached to my head. the last pic is with frizz

Default Treatment 2moro (7/4)

I believe my stylist is doing the Coppola treatment...I went to her to get a last minute straighten about 3 weeks ago and she noticed my hair was all curly (I used to use her when I wore a relaxer, after I bc'ed I stopped going back-anyway). She looked at the condition of my hair and suggested the treatment. She stated my hair should do really well with it. My hair is short/medium length, below the ear and she's charging me $150, which she is stating b/c of the length. She has informed that I will have to leave it for 3 days and no pins, ponytails nothing, it must lay flat. Does this appear to be the similar guidelines? I'll be ready to update on the results after tomorrow.

dezignguy30,

Could you tell us what the Copolla smoothing treatment actually looks like?? Is it brown or white, watery or creamy? Does it have a distinct smell?
Just want to know what to check for when we go to a salon and it would help if someone who uses it can tell us. Thanks!!!

Default Treatment This AM

Well, the process was pretty much what's been stated, she washed my hair, blowdried, and applied the treatment, but then she placed the plastic cap and under the hooded dryer approx. 20 min, she then blowdried my hair and flat iron...it looks really good so far. I was told do not get it wet, pin it, pony tail anything, let it stay flat (straight) if it gets wet, blow dry and flat iron. She did offer me the shamp/condish (for color treated) but I have the pureology, so I don't know which one I will go with for my initial wash, I can wash it Tuesday, so I'm looking forward to what the results will be.

Ah! When I first read this I thought the ebay user was the hairstylist that did my hair because her salon name is Femme Fatale! But then I went on ebay and saw that the seller femmefatale's location is in North Carolina and I live all the way in south Florida! Haha
Yes, dezignguy30, if you could tell us what color the Coppola hair treatment that you use is that would be great.

I went for a consultation to get this treatment done and I am just about to make the appt to go but my only concern is swimming in salt water and/or chlorinated water. Does anyone know if this is safe to do so following having this treatment done.. or if it could cause the treatment to be undone?

Default Sooo happy

I'm so happy with my results, I washed my hair and I actually used the Coppola sh/co (color treated) that my stylist provided I then went through the rest of my routine. 1) when washing I observed no curl, more of a wave pattern 2) I used my Warren Tricomi hair mask and left it on for 5 minutes with the cap 3) I washed everything out and and combed through my hair after apply infusium 23 (I've started using this on my hair) 4) sectioned and blow dried, my hair was straight while blowdrying, the flat iron was only to clean up and polish, I'm really happy with this.

Hi, I'm new here too...I just got mine done saturday at Delilah's Salon in White Plains, NY. It cost me $250 and my hair is halfway down my back and THICK... I know she uses Coppala because I've been going to her for 10 years - she's very honest, reasonable and she also owns the salon. It didn't smell like chocolate to me. It was watery & brown, almost looked like syrup. I'm just DYING to wash my hair... one more day to go!!
