I did my own Brazilian Keratin Treatment

Not finding anyone in my state to do the Brazilian Keratin Treatment, I decided to do it at home with the help of my adventuresome husband.

I bought from ebay the Chocolate Keratin product. The process involved
washing my hair with a clarifying shampoo and then drying if completely.
Next my husband applied the product to my hair like one would if they were having it colored followed by a blow dry. Finally, he flat ironed the hair at 450 degrees.

It took about 3 hours to complete. this was my husbands first time at any such hair styling, but he is good with his hands. I really like the result!

I have waited the 4 days before shampooing and tomorrow will get my hair cut.

Please let me know shat you think especially if you have experience with the process. I'm sure we can improve the results.
I have some photos on photobucket but I can't figure out how to post them here.
