Heyyyy guys,

So I've been doing my research on the boards and decided today that I'm not ready to take the plunge and get a keratin treatment just yet. However, my mom bought me pre-paid keratin appointment at the Ricardo Rojas salon in NYC on LivingSocial.com (a website that gives deals and stuff on otherwise incredibly expensive things in the city.). I didn't want it to go to waste cause she'd be pretty pissed and wanted to know if anyone on here wanted it.... the treatment is $150 on what would normally be $450 for them, which is out-of-control expensive but I guess a lot of celebs and stuff like him. I'm honestly not sure what brand they use but I think I'm gonna try and work with my 3B's for now. I guess PM me if anyone wants this?

I completely apologize if this isn't the right forum by the way.

    While I would not recommend the keratin tx, I will say that your mom paid a lot of moolah on your behalf, and maybe you should CALL the salon and say:

    "I'm concerned due to health issues, but could you please substitute another service. Maybe a shampoo, trim, and diffusion dry for curly hair?"

    I figure you should get SOME of your money's worth, and a wash, cut, dry is way less than the $450 keratin, but is prolly right on target for the $150 your mom spent (for NYC). Or maybe a color job?

    If you're really sweet and really polite, etc, maybe they're consider it since you can put the emphasis on fear of the health hazard??

    Worth a shot. :D
