Coppola Keratin Treatment

R u still doing the Coppola treatments and loving it? where on long island? I live in houston ( no one seems to do it here) but go back "home" to long island frequently

I just had this treatment done (Coppola Keratin Treatment) on Thursday July 3rd (also on Long Island).

I cannot wait to wash my hair because it is so flat to my head and looking quite dirty.

My hair texture changed dramatically last year -- used to be a 2b -- and would wear my hair naturally over the summer months. But due to some medications, my hair is now nothing more than frizz with no wave or curl to it. If I leave it natural -- I look like a crazy person! For the past year and a half, I have been committed to blowing and flatironing every time I wash my hair.

I will post back regarding results and look forward to hearing about other experiences.

This thread was a great one so far; thanks for all the information that has been shared.

I would constitute my hair as a 3c and I got the Coppola treatment two weeks ago. The difference is amazing. I let it airdry and it will not be stick straight. There was some wave so it looked quite nice. You can blow dry it stick straight or if you want some curl/definition you can blow dry with a round brush. I love my straight hair now and will definitely do it again. I can send you a picture of the hair if you'd like to see.


what does it look like on a person who has 3c hair afterwards? does anyone know?

Does anyone know what would happen if I use regular shampoo - will it wash out. I don't want to have to deal with this for 5 months!!
I had to relocate for grad school, and my treatment is definitely starting to wear off. Does anyone know any place near Harrisburg, PA that offers this or any of the BKT treatments? Or is there any particular way I could find out??

Frustrated none the less... Keratin process set for 12/20 unless something changes before then.

I just had the coppola treatment at Ulta. They offered to do it for free, because they needed a model. Not sure of what type of curl I have, but it is pretty curly and frizzy and BIG. So, far it is amazing. I will post again after Wednesday, which is the day I can wash.
I got the Coppola treatment done on 8/7 - only 5 weeks ago - and it already seems like my hair is starting to get frizzy and curliesh again. I thought that this would last for at least 3 months. I really loved it when I got it. It made my hair very smooth and healthy-feeling. But, now my hair is starting to get very dry.

Has anyone else experienced this? Could it be because I wash my hair everyday (with a low-poo, though)?
Hair Type - wavy/curly, fine texture, thin/medium density
I am getting the keratin treatment next saturday and my stylist is using a curling iron after the treatment instead of a straightening it out! Has anyone tried this? I do not want to have very straight hair, I just wants less poofy/frizzy thick curly hair (i have 2c). I am a little nervous to get the treatment because I don't want to ruin my hair! I also workout alot and don't want the results to go away because of perspiration, any tips?
Hi,

I have 3b-3c hair naturally- very big and frizzy unless I use a ton of product. Then it could look very nice with a lot of defined spirals. I live in the Charleston SC area so the humidity meant I had to constantly battle frizz. The keratin treatment has been amazing for me. Blow drying it straight is so much quicker! I do still need to use a flat iron- especially as it starts wearing out, but that is also much quicker. At first drying it naturally didn't work for me. Some pieces were stick straight and when I curled them they wouldn't hold the curl! I have since learned that I can add lasting volume and waves with Caruso steam hot rollers. Right before this last treatment I started loving the way it looked when I let it air dry. I bought a good quality curling iron (up to 450 degrees) and I used that to get those pieces that are straighter. The curls did last using the better curling iron. It did flatten after I slept on it though. I would be curious to hear what products others are using when letting their Keratinized hair dry naturally. I use Pureology shampoo- but I am not crazy over their conditioner (it actually irritates my skin) so I also would like to hear what other conditioners you are using. Finally- I would love to hear any recommended home hair coloring kits you would recommend for keratinized hair. One great result of this last keratin treatment for me is my color had been too dark - and the keratin treatment actually lightened mine but in a way that looks natural- I am very happy with that! I wish you all the best with your hair- keratinized or not!

It is far too expensive and time consuming to do this monthly so I'd like to see what other peoples experiences have been before doing it again.

BTW, I really love Deva One Condition. An all around great conditioner. I like the Pureology shampoo also but haven't tried their conditioner. I also use Deva no-poo sometimes.
I absolutely love the Coppola Keratin treatment! My hair looks so much healthier. I can dry it straight with a round brush and I am finished.

I read on another board to use MillCreek Keratin shampoo & conditioner, which is really good. It has only been 4 weeks since my treatment but it is still going strong! Love it!

Salon MJM in Ephrata does the Coppola Keratin for $200 - Laura did mine and I absolutely love it. I have 3b/c, so my hair is still fairly curly, but it's a lot easier to manage. I believe the Ulta in York does it as well. I know it's kind of far, but for $200 (she cut my hair as well) it's a great deal. Hope that helps!!

I had to relocate for grad school, and my treatment is definitely starting to wear off. Does anyone know any place near Harrisburg, PA that offers this or any of the BKT treatments? Or is there any particular way I could find out??

Thanks.
This treatment seems to have finally made its way to Perth, Australia! I just wanted to get some feedback...I probably have 3b hair, very thick and quite frizzy. If I had this treatment done, what sort of curl would I be left with? Any or none? Also there is no way I can blow dry and straighten my hair myself..I just cant pull hard enough! Is this likely to be a possibility for me now instead of an hour in the hairdressers?
When it starts to grow out...will you eventually go back to your original curl?
I was looking at rebonding but didnt like the fact it would be straight forever until you either grow it out or have it cut out...as I wouldnt want to go back to short hair if I had to have it cut out. This CKT sounds a bit more like you can go back to curls a bit more easily
I have (until reading this website) been using a lot of John Frieda stuff....I know that you shouldnt get rebonding done until you have cleansed your hair completely of JF, is this the same case with CKT?
Thanks...look forward to some replies !
I live in the Chicago Area- if there is anyone who is very experienced and knows how to deal with 3b/c type hair PLEASE let me know!! I am looking to do this treatment ASAP!!
Thanks everyone

I had mine done last Friday at the Ulta in Murfreesboro.
I've been doing my research on this Keratin Treatment and I still dont know if its the right thing to do!! I have 4a hair so the chances of the results being spectacular seem slim to none.

Im mixed race and my hair is sooooo tightly curled the only way i can handle it is by braiding it. Otherwise my 'middle of the back' hair barely reaches the bottom of my neck. But spending 8 hours braiding every 3-4 weeks is getting real boring esp' as Ive had my hair this way for as long as I can remember.

The thing is other ppl always claim to kno how to handle your hair when they honestly have no clue and expect me to be able to wear my hair in all sorts of fancy styles.

I just want to wear my hair out ... so Im considering the Keratin even though it costs a fortune and isnt permanent. Im also considering getting a curly perm instead to set my hair in a more manageable curl pattern. I dont kno whats best ... im confused! Please help!

With the treatment I'm a 3b/3c now. I'm not certain if I will have this done again or not. It is fairly pricey and the results for me are just OK.

For many years I got a curly perm using the large rods to make my curls larger, like you are considering. I loved the way it looked, but over time I noticed it was pretty damaging so I stopped doing it. It also irritated my scalp quite a bit.

Anyway, good luck with whatever you decide to do. Feel free to PM me if you have questions.

Thanksa PJsMom and mixed chick! Seems like the BKT is the way to go .. it is pretty costly but if you were both happy with the results then it should be worth a try. Besides itll give me a long enough break to decide what i really need to do with my hair.

Id love to perm it rather then relax it as i imagine itll be easier to keep the condition good without the need to blow dry and hot iron etc ...
Hi everyone, new here. I have an appointment scheduled for 3 days from now. My stylist had used a product that straightened my hair in the past and I absolutely loved it! I have very frizzy, kinky, curly, thick, coarse hair. This stuff, I'll get the name of it and post was awesome. Made my hair smooth, silky feeling and straighter, not stick straight but straighter and I could flat iron it if I wanted and it was awesome. The outgrow was odd looking and it took longer to get it straight but that was only on the grown out part. Lasted as long as I could tolerate the part growing out.

Now she wants to try this stuff. It seems VERY expensive in this day and age for something that eventually washes out, or wears out. The other product she put on, rinsed out, put in another thing, rinsed and then styled straight. Left it on for three days and loved it. Easy to tolerate the three days because it wasn't icky or sticky and she styled it how I wanted it. Now it seems to me that several girls have said their hair wasn't nice during the three day waiting period. And it seems to wear off.....I'm a bit worried about spending this kind of money. The other product was sooo amazing, only $70 and I could go 6 months to a year before having it done again. This last time she did it it seemed to not "take" well. She says its because of my water, shampoo, dying etc.

I live in a rural area of Michigan and am shocked that my stylist has this available. I'm just worried that she may not have a clue how to do the process properly.

I'm sooo confused! She described what the process was and it didn't seem like what anyone mentioned here. I'd like to know a few things...

From those of you that are stylists what is the exact process?

From those of you with 3C hair, did you tolerate the 3 days of waiting before you could shampoo well? What was the feel of your hair?

Where is an inexpensive place to get the sodium free shampoos and conditioners online?
