Is this the same thing as the Japanese Straightening treatment?? If so, I did that… It had Keratin in it! It was awesome at first, just made my hair wayyy easy to straighten (I have curly/frizzy hair that takes FOREVER). When it grew out, it looked reeeally weird though. I dont think any of those treatments ever wear off so beware!

Your talking about something like that?

I’ve never done one, but I do have naturally wavy hair. I used a straightening iron and blow dryer on it from time to time on it. But I do a protein treatment, or deep conditioning treatment once every couple weeks. Investing in a good deep treatment like K-PAK is a good idea. My younger sister really recommends moroccan oil too.

Is that the same as the brazilian blowout? I got that, and it took my hair from quite curly to slightly wavy, but that effect goes away if you don’t get it re-done. I really liked it though, because I often straighten my hair anyways. It made it really easy to deal with.

@Mrsgurzakovic: I dont think it matters really. Might make your hair alittle heavy if you leave it in. But its worth a try!

@Mrsgurzakovic: When it air dried it was slightly wavy, when I blow dried it it was almost completely straight.

I’m super on the fence about these treatments because they contain formaldehyde and I worry about what the effects of that might be. The companies that make these products can get away with saying that they don’t have forma in them because the chemical isn’t active until it’s heated (which is what straightens your hair).

That being said, my hairdress still preforms these treatments and she like the Brazilian Blowout over any other product because it’s less harsh.

I get the Braz.Blowout aka BB! I love it! I use to take like 30 min. to dry and straighten my hair and it was frizzy.. It only takes like 5 min. and no straightener!! Make sure someone is licensed for this and wel ventilated area. I love it! Also use the shampoo they sell specifically for it OR Loreal Sulfate free shampoo. Wont strip it out of ur hair. I bleached my hair alot but its super healthy now! I do notice my hair gets funky once it starts wearing off… I am getting one done feb4th!! My girl charges me like $75 and its a 200 treatment!! She is goooood!!! Its way healthier and coats/protects it. Color ur hair before you do it or you will have to wait 2-3 weeks to color it after the BB!  They have a BB ZERO which is plant derived and more natural ingredients:))) GL OP!!

hair after a BB and using a HUGE round brush and thats it!!

Also you gain body and volume.. It is not a straightening treatment and takes about 90 min. and you still can curl or style ur hair! Its for a frizz free look! Perfect for humis summers and when you dont wanna blow dry ur hair!! I can let mine air dry and its nice. I never was able to before.Just make sure and use Sulfate free shampoo. I do anyways bc of coloring. The best so far is Loreal!

@Mrsgurzakovic:  Yeah, uh, just be careful when you use it.

Peter Coppola filed a patent in April 2009 for a product that uses keratin pre-reacted with formaldehyde. Coppola’s hair straightener would also contain glutaraldehyde (a chemical related to formaldehyde) or extra formaldehyde. Glutaraldehyde or formaldehyde may be replaced by alternate aldehydes such as citral, octanal or cinnamic aldehyde (CoppolaP, Bucario VC 2009). Coppola products currently on the market claim to use Timonacic acid and not formaldehyde, but testing by eight different organizations indicate the presence of formaldehyde.
