Is it bad to flat iron your hair during the 72 hour period? I am doing this a lot! Also has anyone ever waited longer than 3 days? I am waiting 5 days because my hair stylist wants me to and I will go in on Thursday for her to wash it and blow it out. Is it better to wait longer? Also is anyones hair frizzy after getting it done? And does the frizz go away after the first wash?
I'm totally confused. The Coppola shampoo has Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate as the 2nd ingredient. I would like to transition to sulfate and silicone free products as the coppola wears off, and see if my curls are frizz free as they return.
I also noticed you have to be vigilant about reading the labels on styling products! Aveda Hang Straight and Smooth Infusion Conditioner both have sodium chloride in them.
I have 3b hair and never wear it curly, I always dry it to get big waves. It's a pain. I love some volume but not big frizz which is what I've been getting since I moved to the east coast. Has anyone done the coppola keratin brazilian straightning and been able to still have wavy volume with 3b hair? Any pictures? I am a bit worried about super straight hair. thx.
I just had my 2nd BKT (Coppola) done yesterday. I had the first treatment done back in mid-April, so it lasted about 4 montsh for me.
I'm naturally a 3a. The first treatment brought my hair down to gorgeous beachy waves! LOVED this look! I could also blow dry straight (but with body) in very minimal time.
I was concered about the effects of sweat and chlorine on my treatment as I am a triathlete and I either swim/bike/run 6-7 days a week. The 'smoothness' of the treatmetn probably left my hair in about 2 months. However, my full-on 3a curls never returned at all... the beachy look still stayed around and all I had to deal with was some minimal frizz.
I'm a bit nervous as to how this second treatment will turn out after washing. I'm hoping it's not "too" straight as it's been rumored that these treatments tend to take better the 2nd time around (and beyond).
That being said, the Coppola Treatment has been life changing for me. I live in South FL and the heat/humidity is ridiculous! My natural curl pattern was also very random and I dealt with a lot of frizz since my strands are so fine in weight. Now, it's just a matter of washing, aidrying and problem-free end results that STAY that way.

I'm a curly-headed runner, triathlete and foodie! Sweat, chlorine, sun... my hair gets tortured by it daily. It somehow always manages to 'bounce' another day!
I want this treatment so bad. After being made fun of by everyone, my little sister calling me horse hair, I've had enough.
I just need to convince my mom. It's so expensive and I am too young to get a job. =/
I just got the Keratin Treatment done last Friday, and I love it so far!! This is the best thing I've ever done. I wish I had done it sooner. My hair still has wave and body, but now it doesn't have that awful frizz. It only takes me about 10 minutes to blow it dry. I don't have to flatiron it anymore!! Plus, today I let it air-dry, and it still looked great. (That is something I could never do before). Yay!!
Hair Type - wavy/curly, fine texture, thin/medium density
Ok so, I have a couple questions.
Can you buy the treatment by yourself? It doesn't seem extremely hard to do, but would you recommend this?
I had the Copolla done last year in a salon and the Brazilian Blowout earlier this year. It is easy to do, so I ordered 2 oz from ebay and did it myself last week. I only used 1 oz and probably didn't get the heat up to 450, but it worked well. Not as flat and straight as the salon, but I'm happy with it. I like having more body and no frizz. Naturally, I'm a 3B/C and now its smooth and straight. Won't ever go back to curly. There used to be a couple of good youtube videos showing the process. I will continue as long as I can get the treatment. At 22.50 a shot, I can beat that. It would be really easy if you have a friend who is good with a flat iron.
I Use Cappola Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner and I also bought Coppola Keratin Complex Infusion which is a Keratin Replenisher that I put in my hair before I blow dry it...it is supposed to make it last longer.
I called A Nu U and am getting it done this week! thanks so much for that post i could not find a deal like that anywhere else! Where do you buy the shampoo and everything? and how come it only takes two hours and you can wash it out after an hour? what is the new keratin product called that allows you to do this ?
