4 days wait w/Keratin Coppola???

Hi all!

Had Keratin Coppola done on Tuesday evening. My stylist is *insisting* I wait until Saturday to wash it. This is supremely gross. I really can't be seen publicly much longer!
I'm sure this will be worth it (I hope) but this is vile. I even checked with Coppola and they said 72 hours. But I have a long-standing relationship with this woman and she got a little pissy with me.
Any tips?
I have been researching the keratin treatment for a while now and I have never heard of waiting 4 days. The only thing I have heard different from most everyone else is my stylist said to wait 3 days and then I go back to her for a wash and blow out at no charge?

Did you have to purchase the special shampoo & conditioner as well?

I am sure she won't find out you washed it after the 72 hours?

If you don't mind me asking, how much did she charge you? I think everyone is paying about the same...my stylist said it will probably be $375 less $50 salon discount = $325 becuase of the length & thickness of my hair.

Please come back and post after you do your hair the first time this weekend!!!
I was told to wait 72 hours (3 days) before washing. I just had it done yesterday; this was my second treatment. It is amazing!!
I am supposed to wait until tomorrow afternoon, but REALLY want to wash it in the morning before church. Anybody wash theirs just short of the 72 hour mark?
I have always waited the 72 hours (I've had it done twice). I just had it done 2 weeks ago on a Thursday afternoon, and I washed it on Sunday afternoon.

**** However, my hairdresser actually told me that I could have washed it on that Sunday morning. I don't think a few hours will matter. Good luck.

You have to do it for your whole head, not just the new growth. The Keratin washes out over time. I wash my hair too often (every day pretty much), so that's why mine only lasted about 2 1/2 months last summer.

In order for the BKT to set,neutralize,bond with the hair it needs oxigen and you must make sure to not have any moisture interrupt the process, tiny bridges are getting reinforced, creating a strong bond, this will keep the keratin longer on the hair.

Marcia Teixeira has 3 different formulas.

The Original BKT for thin or caucasian hair, you must wait 4 days for it to set. Never count the day you had it done, on the 4rth day shampoo as early as you want.

The Chocolate Extreme Defrizzing Treatment, for coarse,abundant or ethnic hair, waiting time 3 days.

The Advanced Keratin Treatment for active clients or anyone who does not want to wait to shampoo, the treatment is rinsed out of the hair inmediately after flat ironing,and styled...... you can shampoo the following day.
Hey guys,

I am new to the boards and am considering a Keratin blow out soon .... I am getting married in August and we are going to Mexico were we will swim in the ocean and pool and generally be outside all the time. I am concerned that if I get the Keratin treatment done I will just ruin it with the ocean water and chlorine. Any thoughts on this? Will it be okay?

The whole thing sounds really appealing--I have had frizzy curls my whole life. It would be amazing to have shiny silky hair--especially for my wedding and honeymoon.
You cannot, I repeat, cannot let your hair get anywhere near salt or chlorine while you have this product in your hair. Unless, of course, you have $300 to burn!

to prevent a bkt/bb from washing out. My very first BKT, which had minimal results anyway, washed away after one use of a conditioner with ammonium salt in it. With my current BKT, I used Giovanni's tea tree clarifying shampoo, and ALREADY i'm seeing some waves/curls return. I think for some it would be in instant reversal, while for others, you'd simply see the results of the keratin fading sooner than usual. It really really depends on your hair, which treatment you get, and how much exposure you'll have to the elements. All in all, why chance it? I can't swim so this isnt' a huge issue for me. I don't plan to do anything more than wade in the water this summer.but if you are a swimmer and enjoy the beach and pools, this is NOT the product for you. Wait until the fall.

I believe that it would because the only different, to my understanding, is that the Coppola Keratin treatment doesn't use formaldehyde but a different form that is less harsh. So it is essentially the same thing... either way it is a keratin based process that will wash out.

From what I have been reading is to rinse the hair in fresh water and apply either conditioner or something to coat your hair. Then do not let the salt water/chlorinated water dry on your hair. Rinse it out when you get out of the pool. Or use a shower cap...
