I was staring at my frizzy, unmanageable, dull hair for the last time.  I was finally getting my Marcia Teixeira Brazilian Keratin Treatment (BKT) done last week at Estilio Valdez Salon in Austin and I was excited, nervous, terrified.

Let me start by saying that I love curly hair.  I work here at NaturallyCurly.com, and believe in everything we stand for, which is embracing and loving your curls.  More importantly, loving your hair is a huge step for a woman.  We are always changing our style, cut, and color in hopes that the next step we take will lead us to bliss.  I have never felt blissful about my hair.  I struggled with it daily, even with the plethora of amazing products that I have access to here at NC.com.  I learned how to manage my 3c curls, finally had some amazing haircuts, but I was still disappointed in my hair.

So there I was, about to get the BKT done and I was beginning to embrace the fact that this may be the end of my struggle with my hair.  I was told that the treatment would strengthen my hair, loosen my curl, and eliminate most of my frizz.  This was a no-brainer for me—I was ready.

The treatment itself was only about 2 hours long and it flew by due to the wonderful stylist Ron Valdez keeping me company.  My hair was washed twice and then the treatment was applied to my hair after it had been dried.  He then flat-ironed my hair and gave me my weekend rules.  Since the treatment was applied on a Friday, I was going to have to wait until Tuesday to wash my hair.  I also couldn't tuck it behind my ears or pull it back.  This was going to be rough.

The weekend went well enough—I learned to be careful with my hair, and it actually wasn't too bad.  I went back on Tuesday morning and he washed my hair and trimmed the ends since my previous haircut was for curly hair.  He blew out my hair in a matter of minutes—something that has never happened.  Needless to say, I am thrilled with my hair.  The frizz is almost completely gone and it feels amazing.  I can't wait to style it curly and see what it looks like!
