Yes, I had yet another keratin treatment

As many of you know, I was very leery of having a keratin treatment. I had to be convinced that it would not take away my curls or ruin my hair.

Little did I know that I would become an addict.

Five months later, I just had my third treatment done. CurlStylist was doing a demo for a company, and they needed another head of hair to work on. I had just had it done for the second time a month ago, but offered my curls up. The curl had tightened up quite a bit anyway.

The treatment I had done was very similar to a Brazilian Blowout, with similar application. Zac Watson of Dolce & Co. in Arizona provided some new insights, including the fact that the iron temperature can affect how straight the hair gets. Since I wanted curl, he had it at a lower temperature than he would for someone who wanted a smoother look.

This time around, my hair was noticeably straighter, even after the product was rinsed out and my hair was air dried. I have to admit that it freaked me out a little. But four days later, it's probably a 3a (I'm usually a 3b), with a lot of shine and definition. It feels really soft, and I have no frizz despite Hurricane Alex wreaking havoc on Austin's weather.

I'm a 3b would love to see photos too. My concerns are the same. I want to lose the frizz but not too much curl you have. Was it a certain brand, cause different salons do different brands.

I totally recommend the Brazilian Blowout. I just had my second treatment on Sunday. I had 3b type curls - similar to Julianna Margulies - and now I have much more manageable 3a curls. The time it takes for me to get ready in the morning has been greatly reduced - I'm no longer applying layer after layer of product!!!! My hair is healthy and shiny and frizz free!!! This has been a very liberating experience. I got mine done at Salon Diva Divo in Deer Park, NY. It was $250 and you have to make sure you ask for Lisa. I recommend it to anyone who is looking to have one of these treatments!!!! Enjoy and good luck!!

Thanks for this info, I have found it very helpful. I have an appointment for a BB tomorrow and want to continue to wear my hair curly as well. I was wondering if you still have to use as many products on your hair? I currently use 3, a styling creme (Curls Rock), a gel (Ouidad Curl Quencher moisturizing gel) and a curl definer (Paul Mitchell Round Trip). This has been the best combination for me for a while (I'm a 3b). Thanks again.

That's all well and good... but we need photos :)
