I 2nd that! This is definitely true of this product.
It cuts back on the straightening time but of course you can't wear your hair curly after this. I did this with every intention to straighten every day if not every other day
Rams2gether, what flat iron do you use?

In case yu are still looking for a salon in NYC: I just had it done this past weekend by LeeAnn at Salon Novella on West 14th Street. I washed it out this morning and OMG - I love, love, love it. I bought the Coppola Keratin Shampoo, Conditioner and Shine at my local Ricky's to help insure that it lasts as long as possible.

Default Keratin

I am a mixed girl (dominican, polish, and black) and have 3b hair. I have tried everything for my hair to become more managable. I did relaxers for a few years and my hair kept breaking so i just would'nt grow. I live i Philly and heard about this treatment, i went to the salon and got it done back in november and loved it. I have had 2 more treatments since then and my hair is shiny and growing. I will say i only wear my hair straight so i don't know how it look curly. This is the only thing that works for me and i don't think i will stop getting it. Have had to cut back on other things to pay for it but its well worth it.

Default Anyone with 3C have before and after pics

I am thinking about the Coppola Kerratin Treatment, but so far all the pictures are of people with less curl. Anyone that is a 3C have before and after picks?

Default go ahead, it's completely safe! no tradeoff's!!!

I'm a professional stylist and chemical technician from oak park, Il. this is the most amazing treatment I have seen in my entire professional career! it works for all hair types without any tradeoffs in hair structure or integrity, I am thrilled for my curly clients to finally be able to have the hair of their dreams!!! first and foremost this is not a chemical, there is no thio, sodium, or formaldehyde. the 2 most important ingredients are keratin and sillicone. hair is made of keratin, chemicals and heat break down the keratin leaving the hair dull and dry. I had a client who had the treatment and freaked out afterward thinking that the treatment lightened her haircolor. the treatment filled in the dry spots and corrected the porosity of the hair which made it very bright, shiny and light reflective. we actually dicovered that she was getting the wrong shade of color all along! you can actually use any color or chemical with the treatment. use after a rusk straightener on ethnic hair and you will get a japanese straightener result ON ETHNIC HAIR!!! smooth blowdrys are a fraction of the origonal time and air drying leaves you frizz-free.

Default A few concerns

I am considering the Coppola Keratin Treatment. I have very thick hair with a lot of frizz but my curls are pretty loose, not tight corkcrews. Based on what I've read, it seems that if I were to let my hair air dry after having the treatment done, my hair would probably have a slight wave in it but would be pretty close to being straight. So here's my concern- when my roots (which are very frizzy) start to grow in, will I have a fuzzball close to my scalp even though the rest of my hair will be smooth? I know the treatment wears off over time but I'm pretty sure my roots would start to show before it wears off.

I'm also wondering about something else. A couple people have mentioned the treatment doesn't last as long if you work out a few days a week and your hair gets sweaty. Can anyone tell me how long the treatment will last if your hair gets sweaty, say, 4-5 days per week? Also, I know that the less frequently you wash your hair, the longer it will last. But I need to wash my hair every time I work out so...with the sweating and the frequent washing combined...I'm thinking the treatment might wear off so quickly it won't be worth my money.

I'm not sure where you are exactly, but I got it done at Kerri's Klaws in Hunterdon County (Clinton)

I'm very happy with the results.

Kaitlyn did it....runs about $300 or so, but they base it on how long it takes more than anything. My hair is not quite shoulder length

Smile Keratin by Coppola

I had the keratin treatment done in January 2009; I have very thick, curly and frizzy hair. The results are great. It is now June in humid Chicago and my hair is just starting to get a little fuller. I am in Florida most of the winter and my have never ever frizzed and was easy to blow dry. I highly recommend this process. I have had Japanese straightening which left my hair stick straight and dull; the keratin is the best!!!

I am having another treatment done next week ..

I had the Coppola Treatment done at a great salon and I love it! The pricetag did not agree with my wallet so I just bought the treatment online. In case you didn't know that you can order it and do it yourself here's the website. (You can also find a distributer near you by calling 1-888-409-4445. http://www.cosmeticmagic.com/keratin...frzcagodbcaobg

Default 1st timer - Appt tomorrow!

Hi! I first heard about the Coppola Keratin treatment a few weeks ago. I've read through this entire thread and done as much research as I could about it. I have naturally 3b/3c hair, but I blowdry/flat iron/torture my hair to be as straight as possible. I never really learned how to manage curly hair, so I've been forcing it straight for about 15 years. I used to use relaxers frequently, but I always did it myself and HATED the fried, dry, stiff mess I was left with. I looked into the Japanese treatment and was told 30 seconds into my consult that it would basically disintegrate my hair because of the conflicting chemicals.
I am SOOOOOO excited to be getting the Coppola treatment tomorrow. I have heard and read way more good things than bad, and I've already had my consult. I'm going to Visible Changes and I have quite a lot of faith in them. I've never stuck with one stylist or salon before whether because they didn't know how to do my hair or because of the cost. I was quoted between $300 & $400... hoping it'll be closer to $300 since my hair is a little longer than chin length, but it is thick.
I hope my results are as good as everyone else's!

Default CHI Quick Smooth

Has anyone ever heard of or tried something called Chi Quick Smooth by Farouk? A nearby salon offers this procedure for $100. It is supposed to eliminate frizz. The owner of the salon said that this is alcohol-free and contains no formaldehyde.

I don't know whether to get the Keratin Treatment or this. Thanks for your thoughts.

if you like to where your hair straight all the time the chi is a permenent so you will see more of a root because
your hair will grow back curly and the part that wast
done straight will stay straight
and the Copola last in the hair 3 to 5 months and the coppola is more of an anti friz treatment it can straighten the hair from 50 to 95%

I got the copola treatment done about 2 months ago but i have questions that are kinda random. When your hair stylist is applying the treatment to your hair what tool does she/he use and do they apply it at a fast or slow pace? Also is the treatment a brown, watery liquid?

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?).
