Should I get a Keratin Treatment?

Recommended Posts

Honestly. I don't even know exactly what the Keratin Treatment does. My hair is pretty flat and fine. But it's wavy not straight. And it gets frizzy way too fast. I watch all the youtubers who had normal hair before suddenly have perfect hair. And they all mention they get keratin treatment done. I don't know if it's right for me. I need some advice please :)

Sorry no one answered this. As I type I have an organix brand keratin treatment in my hair. It will be 48 hours before I find out if it looks good or not.

 

Right now it looks like I used way too much conditioner and failed to rinse it out properly. I'm glad I'm not planning to go anywhere for the weekend. It does feel super soft. People complained in the reviews that it smelled bad. It has a top note of vanilla and a base note of chemicals (like hair color).

I'm not an expert - but it seems some love it, and some hate it.  I had one done several years ago and it made my hair worse (drier and seemed even more damaged), but my hair is very sensitive to protein, so I should have known better.

I've been considering keratin treatment for quite some time as well. But recently I finally stopped thinking about it as I found a good alternative - Kerastase Elixir Ultime shampoo and a masque. My goodness this line changed my hair so dramatically! Well, it is expensive but still twice cheaper than keratin treatment. Have you ever tried this line by Kerastase? I'm very impressed with it!

I have lost over 50% of my hair and have two small bald batches thanks to my second Keratin treatment. 

It is not the keratin that is the problem - it is formaldehyde or whatever equally strong chemicals they use to replace the formaldehyde.



Dont approach this treatment and if you do it - know what you are risking.

    • This Advent Calendar sounds amazing!! Thanks so much for sharing!!
    • I am going on a No Buy (replacements only) in January and February. My goal is to pay off a credit card of $140 (accounting for interest, I will need to pay off around $150), and to use up my deluxe sample sized beauty items. The same resolution I have every year, but this time it's different. I'll be paying off the last in a very long series of mini debts I had in my debt snowball, after two years of paying things off. After that I'll be going into a different phase, working on larger debts. Also, I am starting with far, far fewer sample beauty products than I used to, having used so many up in the last two years.  It's exciting, getting to the end of this phase. I'm going to be going through my samples in the next two weeks and getting ready! It's a good way to start the year, with smaller goals and easier wins. 
    • Do you like card games? for example poker?
    • Advent calendar: Day 8 - Bright red nail polish - Polish was so easy to apply, and lasted well. I got several compliments on it.  Day 9 - At the Heart of Pine Trees Holiday Shower Gel - a fresh orange scent with a soft wood note.  Day 10 - Apricot body scrub.  Day 11 - Hydrating micellar water.  Day 12 - Plein Soleil Perfume - I love the perfume! It is tuberose with a hint of cardamom, to evoke travels to the East.  Day 13 - At the Heart of Pine Trees matching body lotion.  Day 14 - Mango Coriander Shower Gel.  I've been feeling the pressure of the holidays this month! I've been frustrated, because I have not been able to make progress on paying my credit card off by the end of the year. It's looking like it's not going to happen. I wanted to pay it off by the end of the year just because of perfectionism. Since it was the last in the series of smaller balance debts in my debt snowball, I thought it would be nice to have it done by New Year's Eve and start January with a larger goal. After having a relaxed day (I went to the park for a walk and saw baby deer!), I finally thought of something that made it okay to defer that goal a bit. I realized I won't be finished with my mini beauty products by the New Year either. I have far fewer than in past years, but I'll still have some to get through. I always had the concept of using my mini sample products and paying my smaller debts (the easier goals) and after that was through, I would use up full sized products while paying off larger debts. After thinking of that, I felt it would be okay to make a new plan and give myself January and February to pay my last small bill ($140) while using up the mini products. Then in March I can begin work on larger debts and larger products! I did achieve all of my 2019 New Year's Resolutions, and paid off five credit cards this year, and I'm very happy with that. I'm not going to go on a shopping spree and buy myself a lot of things with credit cards, but I do need to make it through Christmas!       
    • I think Makeup brushes are a base for makeup, especially for this set of makeup brushes, highly recommended.
