I finally am playing with the waves in my newly frizz-free hair, make sure to leave a comment with questions and comments!

All right; I have to give major props to Marcia Teixeira and my newfound appreciation for the Brazilian Keratin Treatment!  After receiving the treatment a few days ago, I have finally had the freedom of washing and styling my hair at home, so I chose to wear it curly today and am loving the beachy wave that I am left with!  My hair is completely transformed:  I am using very little leave-in conditioner (Tigi Curlesque) and have almost no frizz and extremely soft and shiny locks.

I know that there is a lot of controversy about why we post these stories and test these products when we are a curl-loving website.  Having options is a huge part of being a woman. I can speak only for myself and say that I change my mind daily on things from my taste in fashion, music, men, and of course, hair.  I don't feel guilty that I chose to loosen my curls and lose the frizz if I feel better for it!  There may be some confusion on what my texture would be after the treatment, so I think it is important that everyone see this photo of me taken today with my Austin Frizz Forecast at 86% humidity, and understand why I love this treatment.  I am still a curly and will always be, but I can't stress how much better I feel about myself and my hair after doing this!

I also want to advise anyone who wants to get this done to do their homework and find a great stylist who is educated on the product they administer.  Ron Valdez was recommended to me because he is the only one in this area who educates other stylists on the treatment.  I, of course, chose him and did my homework on the company.  Also, schedule a consult with the stylist a few days before receiving the treatment.  This way you know what you are getting yourself into and have time to think about it. I will keep you updated with pictures of my hair throughout my journey! Please leave comments and feel free to ask questions—I would love to help you in your hair journey!

i really want to try something thats going to loosen my curl. My hair is 3b and 3a, its pretty frizzy and thin. im trying to start the CG method where i use no cones or sulfates but im not sure how that works with keratin and achieving beachy waves. I would also like to beable to do it at home. I dont want to loose my curl and i probably wont ever touch an iron again. IS there any treatments that i can use at home that still work with the cg method.? thankyou :)

I had the Brazilian Blowout done about a month and a half ago and I adore it!! I have 3c hair and now it looks similar to your picture - some wave. With a flat iron I get stick straight. I have never felt so good about my hair...even though I have tried to love my curls. It just doesn't work. I agree with the shampoo comment...less is better. I did end up getting the BB aftercare and I will say that I can feel a difference in my hair when I use it (softness, relaxing). My plan is to continue the treatments for as long as I can afford them (the only downside). Thanks for the info!!

I hear ya! I love the options I have now...I can wear it curly or straight in a breeze. I had fine hair before but a really strong curl pattern, 3b, 3c in some areas. Make sure to let me know how the BB goes!

how curly was your hair before the treatment? im getting a Brazilian Blowout tomorrow!(:i want temporary stick straight results and i know that not gonna happen haha but a gal can dream;)

I had the Marcia Teixeira Brazilian Keratin Treatment done. I love it, and I have witnessed many different treatments, it seems to have more of a lasting effect (up to 6 months!).

which treatment did you use? the brazilian blowout? :)
