Left: This is the most recent picture I have of my natural hair, but it is about 5 years old. It was much healthier and fuller in this picture. Just imagine my natural hair before this treatment like this, but way more damaged and a little less curly!
Right: This is my hair air dried after my first shower after the treatment! It feels so healthy and full now (I know my ends look a big stringy, but a lot of my hair is still at the front of my body in this picture- I swear it looks much better in person). I am amazed! To be able to just shower and leave without having to do my hair is the most amazing feeling ever. This treatment has truly been such a game changer for me!
It does not take much effort to maintain a keratin treatment. Basically all you need is a sulfate free shampoo, and preferably a keratin-based shampoo and conditioner- I use Nexxus Keraphix conditioner. I also like to spray a keratin leave in treatment in my hair once I get out of the shower. I use Chi Keratin Mist Leave-in Strengthening Treatment and found it at TJ Maxx for only $10. Try to only wash your hair a maximum of every other day.
**Disclaimer** I am in no way a hair stylist. I would recommend going to a salon to get this treatment because it is probably much safer and more effective that way- I would have if I could afford it. This formula does contain formaldehyde which will make your eyes burn and will feel like its taking over your senses if you aren't in a well ventilated area. It is also a known carcinogen, so just be extra careful if you do decide to use this product (there are formaldehyde free options!!)
