Did it 2 times.  LOVED IT.  I definitely recommend!!  

I had it done the first time before a wedding on an island in Florida in May (hello humidity) and my hair was perfect the whole time.  Did it a few months later bc I was obssesed with it.

westcoast_girl:  I’ve had it done twice and absolutely loved my results. My hair is more wavy than curly but it definitely worked well. I know some who had crazy curly hair and even after the blowout its still a bit curly but definitely smoother and much more manageable. If it wasn’t so expensive I’d do it more often!

I love it and do it all the time and my hair has never been healthier. Make sure your hairstylist is using a brand that packs a lot of bang for the buck (some formulas don’t do much, but I’ve always had the same good ones).

I had it done and didn’t notice a damn difference. To be fair I dont have frizzy hair, just a lot of curl that she swore would be significantly reduced by the treatment. BS. (Maybe I’m still a little bitter, lol. Shit’s expensive.)

Yeah you need the formaldehyde ones. The other ones don’t do anything.

I tried this and didn’t see much of a result… go for a straightening treatment like yuko or cerathermic instead if you want straight hair. I found that the blowout improved the condition of my hair, but it wasn’t straighter.

I’ve had it done once and loved it!  I did the Keratin straightening treatment – It was so nice to have smooth silk shiny hair without blowdrying and styling.  I would love to do it again, but it’s pretty pricy.

Not sure if hair stylists are able to use the ones with formeldahyde. Most of the straightening treatments are now keratin, they pretty much just weigh your hair down, so if you have fine hair you may not like it, if you have course hair you might like it for the frizz. Keratin treatments only relax your curl a little bit

The formaldehyde ones are all still out there. It’s only been shown to be a health risk for ppl who repeatedly inhale the fumes of putting best on the product regularly (like multiple times a day) with no ventilation. It’s similar to the dangers of nail polish fumes for nail salon workers.

I just got mine done again. Amazing. Depending on how curly your hair is, it doesn’t fully take out curl but loosens the curl A LOT (if your stylist uses the right product). So it’s much easier for me to wear my hair straight and if I let my hair air dry, it’s about twice the length while curly as it was before (my hair is very curly). My hair will straighten just by putting it in a ponytail when wet or blow drying/braiding it. I no longer have to blowdry, then press/flatiron it, and then still have it poof up within a couple hours. There isn’t a ridiculous difference when it grows out either because it also fades off the old hair within about 4 months as the new growth develops. 

If anyone’s in the socal/LA area, pm me and I’ll give you my stylist’s info. She does an amazing job. I’ve been having her do it for over 4 years now and it’s worth it every single time.
