KERATIN HAIR TREATMENT

On my last post I was showing off my pin straight hair. It wasn't merely just to look awesome or anything (maybe a little), but instead to show off my newly Keratin treated hair. It is applied to your hair piece by piece, and then your hair is flat ironed. After that, you're not allowed to wash your hair for three days so it can absorb the proteins. This isn't the first time I've done it, so I knew what to expect: lustrous, smooth, wavy hair. Of course, with every good thing, there are hidden side effects. A dangerous ingredient, formaldehyde, is found in the mixture for the treatment and is basically what makes it work. Long term exposure to formaldehyde has some correlation to cancer (apparently, so do burnt marshmallows). I did my research and still decided to continue with the treatment because summer is approaching, and with that comes humidity, and my fro simply cannot handle that ...and I still continue to eat burnt marshmallows. Also, I firmly believe in "correlation, not causation". As with anything, you have to outweigh the pros and cons and do your homework. 

Before, with styling

Immediately After

After one wash, no styling

 I am thrilled with the results! I have never been able to leave the house with wet hair because of how unpredictable my mane can be, but now I have the perfect beach hair. Just be careful to use a reliable hair dresser with high quality product because so many things could go wrong with strong treatments such as this one.

-XOXO S.
