I am getting this done within the next two weeks and have a few questions:

1) How much are you paying and what is a reasonable tip for this process? I am getting my hair highlighted and cut this weekend and that will cost me $130 and I normally give her a $30 tip. She said my keratin treatment should probably cost me $325 and take a little over 4 hours because the length and thickness of my hair. Is $60 reasonable? I paid $400 for 4 hours and gave a $60 tip

2) My stylist told me I need to buy the special shampoo and conditioner specifically for the treatment? Is this true? Have any of you used regular shampoo? YES!! My stylist said the poo and condish offered is weird so I bought Purology Hydrating poo and condish and LOVE IT!!

3) She also told me that I have to wait 3 days before washing my hair and then I go back to her and she will blow it out no charge, is this normal? I mean it cant hurt but if I have it done on a Thursday, I can wash it by Sunday, I don't want to wait another day to have her blow it out? I had to wait 3 days but didn't have to go back for a blow out

4) Final question, you can't wash for 3 days, am I also understanding it correctly that you can't pull it back with any sort of hairband or clips? You just have to let it hang??? Yep, absolutely correct!!

Thanks in advance for any responses...I am nervous and excited at the same time to get this done.
