Coppola Keratin Treatment

The after picture is what I look like after the treatment was done at the salon. She put in the Keratin, blew it out and then totally flat ironed the crap outta my hair lol
So that is after leaving the salon

I washed my hair with the Hyrdrating Poo and Condish by Pureology...
I then sprayed in Miracle 7 Leave in mist...I LOVE THIS STUFF!!!! Makes my hair super thick and shiny for the days I go straight...uh or used to, lol
and then just let it air dry. I just wanted to see what my hair would look like if I didnt flat iron and there you have it. I actually love it this way too

wow, rams your results are awesome!!!! It doesn't feel stiff or anything like it would after a regular relaxer, right?

ETA: Did you buy the shampoo and condish they recommend you buy with the treatment?

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

sorry the pic is weird but my husband took it of me in front of the tv which my hair sort of blened in with on top
I have never gotten a relaxer so I am not sure what that would feel like but my hair is super duper soft and shiny as you can see in the pic after flat ironing.

The stylist who did my hair actually told me that the recommended poo and condish, which she sells, is kinda weird and many ppl are not happy with. She told me to look for Sodium-Chloride free poo and condish. I remembered that in this particular thread, the Hydrating series by Pureology were great, so I bought em' at a different salon

For those of us who have had this done-what shampoos and conditioners are you using. I am almost out of the ones I got from the salon.
so i have the most unruly hair. It's (naturally) extremly curly and frizzy, and I was sure that absolutely no treatment could calm it down. so when I was offered to be a model for the Keratin Company, I just thougt, what the heck. might as well, right? well i was absolutely positivley ASTONISHED to see this amazing thing work. i have to admit waiting 3 days to wash my hair and not be active (sweating) was pretty hard, but well WAY worth it all the way. to give you an idea of how thick my hair is, I have enough for 3 people, and if my free (yes, ladies, emphasis on the free :}) treatment was not, well, FREE, it would have been a $500 job. but I am so amazed by this, i think all of us curly heads can rejoice and praise the hair gods, despite what this may to do your walllets. BUT. this stuff doesn't need to be added so much to your hair over time (it lasts 3-6 months), because believe it or not, this stuff actually makes you hair healthier along the way. this treatment is a hair relaxer rather than a hair sraightener. not only does it make the hair healthier and stronger, buuuut it makes it look gorgeous, the main reason why I decided to get it done (that and i paid nothing).
TIP: hair products with salts and alcohol in them can shorten the time this treatment lasts, and dries out your hair. make sure to check the bottle, or, if you're like me and can't read nerd, ask your stylist what would be best.
this process also works on ethnic, colored, and permed hair of all lenghths. This is really a treatment for damaged hair, so, if you have anormal amount of keratin in your system, guys, save some of the product for us, and save yourself the money!

I did some internet research to figure out all the chemical names for salt. It took longer than I thought. Of course, sodium chloride is the big one. Then sulfates. Also most other chlorides. There are disodium ingredients and then EDTA. Given the expense of the treatment and the fact that it wears off, it pays to be vigilant about avoiding salt. Overall, I prefer yuko. But the coppolla keratin gives a healthy look, and for those who want wavy hair or bigger curls it's great, if you are willing to deal with avoiding salt/sweating and washing hair as little as possible to maximize the effects (so, 1-2X a week is probably best).

If it were $100-200, I would feel differently. $300 and up is pricy for a treatment that wears off instead of growing out. But the results are very pretty. I just don't necessarily see the value in it.

I see that many of you have gotten the keratin treatment and had wonderful results. My question is I have been reading a lot about the treatment and I read that the keratin treatment works best if there is a relaxer or color. My hair is natural so for the treatment to work better do I need to add color or a relaxer to my hair?

Hey guys, i am thinking about doing the keratin treatment. I have type 3 thin, fine curly hair. There are a couple of things I am worried about. Did anyone experience any kind of hair loss during or in the weekds following the treatement? and what does hair look like once the kertain begins to start washing out in about 3 months. I hope my hair returns to its usual curly look and not like it does with a YUKO treatement. Thanks a bunch

Anyway, my hairdresser recommended Aquage silkening shampoo and the healing conditioner (also by Aquage). Their products are sulfate free and I highly recommend them. I have really course, dry hair and I actually had used the healing conditioner before I got the treatment and it's by far the best conditioner I've ever found for my hair.

The only thing is that it can be hard to find... I have been able to order it on Amazon recently though.
Has anyone gotten this treatment done in Los Angeles? Any recs for a stylist in LA who does it? Thanks!

Does anyone know where I can get the coppola keratin treatment done in South Florida?!

Ready to transition back to my curls that I've missed!
Just had my 1st Keratin treatment done last week and am loving it. Hated the 1st 72hrs but seems like it was worth it. Just wondering how long it really lasts. I exercise a lot (4/5 times a week) and am wondering if the salt from sweating will make it come out quicker. Has anyone noticed that to be a problem??

Just a side note-I love my Keratin treatment. But I realized how much better it is if you are in a less humid state. I was in Mass for a week and had less frizz and didn't have to flat iron at all. I even got caught in the rain and had no frizz. I have to fight a bit harder in FL to keep the frizz out but it is possible, but will do it again as soon as I have to. It has been 6 weeks right now and is the same as day 1
I was just struck with a question... and I'm really curious about it... hopefully people will be comfortable answering it...

What do you think is an appropriate tip for this procedure? I never feel like I tip enough (although I tip around $10 for a $30 blow dry) and was wondering what others did/what others thought was appropriate...
