Hair Update, Keratin Review…

Gentlemen, I won’t be offended if you just want to skip this post, it’s about my hair and more for the ladies.  But if you’re curious, feel free to read…

I don’t know if anyone remembers me talking about getting a keratin treatment on my hair, but the picture on the left is my highlighted hair that I would wash, blow dry and flat iron to look like that.  If I didn’t, it really would look like a lion’s mane 🙂

Picture on the right is same highlights but a little trim to get two hairdressers to agree on what looked the best after the treatment.  Right now it’s extremely flat and silky but they tell me it will be a little less flat in two weeks.  But after three days when I could wash it I just blew it dry, nothing else!  Keratin should last through about five or six cuts, so six to eight months.

I’m not sure if I really love it yet but it will be nice not to deal with heat and humidity and frizzy hair this summer.  But even with my length hair, process took three and a half hours, a pretty big time commitment, and they said it could take at least an hour longer for shoulder length hair.   Not to mention the cost 🙂
