I had the Coppola Treatment (Feb 10) and a Marcia Teixeira in Oct 09; which was my 1st treatment. I have very kinky-curly hair; 4b, very tightly coiled hair and had cut out all my relaxer in 2007 and got another one in Aug '08. Although I did wear micros for over a year, I had great success with both BKTs. The 1st one did wonders but the 2nd one was jackpot. I just purchased the QOD from eBay last month and I'm very excited to DIY this time. The 1st treatment was over $300 and it didnt look like it took very well and I couldnt wait to shampoo my hair and try it myself; which did well. The 2nd treatment I had done at Ulta - TX and it was sale for $185. Awesome experience. I even have a lil highlights. I think you will enjoy this experience even if you have a relaxer. Very conditioning. I have used the maxiglide, the herstyler and the Babybliss flat irons.
