Keratin Hair Treatment Update

On May 20th I had the Keratin Treatment done to my hair at my local salon – La La Luxe in Providence, RI.

I’ve been getting some emails asking for a Keratin update. So far, I really love the treatment. I think I was worried when I first had it done that my hair would be as pin-straight as it was directly after the process, that’s not the case at all. I still wanted some volume, but just not the frizz.

These were the factors that originally concerned me:
1. Cost
2. Hair can’t be in contact with Chlorine
3. Have to use Sulfate-Free shampoo and conditioner
4. Will is really work?

So far… (and it’s only been 3 weeks) but, I would do this again in a heartbeat. I was able to find Sulfate-Free shampoo and conditioner at Target for $5.99 (better than the salon price of $12 each per bottle). I actually may have difficulty with the Chlorine issue because my sons love to swim and still need my assistance in the pool, but it does appear that there’s conditioner you can use before going into a chlorinated pool. And last… yes! It really does work!

Here’s my recap video:

(This is what my hair looks like immediately after showering and drying BEFORE Keratin. I had this taken the day of the treatment.)

I was one of those people that needed the 30 minutes for drying…. 30 minutes of flat ironing… way too long for me.

  1. I have the straightest hair in the land, but I have several friends who have also recently done this treatment and love it.

    Okay… I also adore your band of bear cubs!!! PLAY on!


  2. Your hair looks awesome… as it always does… but that is great that you didn’t have to take extra time to flat iron it. And no product? Fantastic.

    My hair has the opposite trouble. Totally straight and no body.

    I LOVE seeing your boys running all around… what fun chaos. (I really do not know how you get any work done.)
