Crikey!

I thought you were talking about a Brazilian Wax for the bikini area. 

If you got a BrzWx for your hair , you would have only a 1″ wide strip of hair back 2 front on your head!

Yikes!

I’d love it if you could find some sort of before picture to compare for us.  I have super curly hair, but I dont know what “2c” means.

Your hair looks great! I know what you mean about having the product left in your hair though! I never use hair products and when I do, I can only stand it for so long and then I NEED to wash it out.

I’ve never heard of this, any idea how it caompares to the Japanese straightening? How long will it laast? M hair is also curley but I’d never heard of 2c, what does that mean and who rated your hair?

I have done it.  It is very good.  But make sure the kind of treatment is Fromaldahide-free, like the Coppola Keratin.  If your hair dresser has to wear a mask to apply it, then it is NOT something you want on your head.

It is supposed to eventually fade out, which is nice, because other straighteners leave you with a severe regrowth line.  Your hair will be growing in curly and then reach a point where it turns poker straight.  With the keratin, it grows out nicely.

What I liked about it is that I could still wear my hair wavy when I wanted to and it was soft and shiny.  It didn’t make it dead straight, just easier to blow out and it made the blowouts last longer.

The “2c hair” refers to a type of curl-grading system that describes how curly your hair is. You can see the different types here: http://www.naturallycurly.com/hair-types

Type 1 is straight hair

Type 2 is wavy hair, with subtypes 2A, 2B, and 2C for different levels of wavy-ness

Type 3 is curly hair, with subtypes 3A, 3B, and 3C to describe different levels of curlyness.

Type 4 is kinky hair, with subtypes 4A and 4B for different levels of curlyness.

I’m blessed with stick straight hair, even when I let it air dry, but my mom gets this done and loves it!

I have tried BKT with mixed results.  I liked it a first but it didn’t last very long and it made my hair look greasy.  I have unruly frizzy spiral curls and my favorite hair treatment is the Maintamer (http://www.maintamer.com).

hmm, this is intriguing. Does this help tame frizz too?  I’m 2B

This is supposed to be a really great treatment, and your hair looks great!  However, as someone else noted, this has formaldehyde in it, which is a carcinogen!  So be careful girls!
