Before I did my Keratin hair treatment, I asked many people who already went through the process so that I know if I should go for it or not. Now that my treatment is almost gone, I decided to write about my own experience and give you my honest feedback.
Before I move on with this post, if you have thin hair, straight hair (but you’re in denial), or extremely oily hair, don’t consider this treatment at all. Find an alternative with your hairdresser. If you have healthy thick tamed hair, count your blessings and please stop nagging ❤
I decided to go with the treatment since I was tired of styling my frizzy hair especially during summer time. I wanted my hair to be tamed and straight during the hot weather to avoid the styling hassle. I did the treatment back in May and the hairdresser told me that it’s supposed to last for about 5-6 months. My hair now is still straight, but wavy from the top since my hair is growing.
Keratin Hair Treatment Pros:
- Saves time
- Removes Frizz from hair
- Doesn’t need styling or additional hair products
- Lasts a long period of time (5-6 months)
- Relatively affordable
However, every miraculous treatment has its Cons:
- Increases hair-fall
- Hair looks greasy during the 1st month
- Hair needs to be washed more than usual
- Increases split-ends
I can’t deny that this treatment really saved my life this summer. If you have stubborn frizzy hair, I encourage you to try this treatment at least once. I don’t think I will re-do this treatment any time soon just because I feel the it involves a lot of chemicals, and I don’t want to be exposed to that regularly. However, I might do it again in summer if I felt the need.
Before I end this blog post I want to mention that I paid $100 for the treatment. Be warned, many hair salons are charging $300++ so make sure you ask around before you seal the deal.
