Living in the Lowcountry with the never-ending humidity can be extremely frustrating for women with semi-curly hair (aka: frizzy!). I’ve battled my not-so- cute curls with daily flat ironing, endless products, time and money, but I still have never really been happy with the way my hair looked.
My stylist, Dawn Faivre at Lime Lite Salon, has been telling me for years that I need to give the Keratin Treatment some consideration. I’ve avoided these types of treatments because I feared permanent damage to my hair; however, I never really understood how the treatments work.
Six weeks ago I finally decided to give it a try, and I have been so pleased with the results. I haven’t used a flat iron one time since my treatment, yet my hair is softer and smoother than it has ever been. People continually tell me that they can’t believe how long my hair has gotten — little do they know that it hasn’t grown an inch, it’s simply straight!
My blow drying time has been cut in half and I haven’t needed to use any products to reduce frizz. The treatment has actually made my hair healthier and stronger. It turns out that the Keratin protein used will rejuvenate the hair, not damage it.
The Keratin Treatment can be done up to four times a year. This is the perfect time of year to go for it because with all of the holiday parties and chaos, it will save time and money and leave your hair feeling and looking like silk.
