BKT - How it worked for me

NoraCurlNoraCurl Posts: 345Registered Users
I became modified CG on May 2009. When my uncle told me about the BKT, I was rejective until I found out it was a treatment that would help my hair, and would give me loose waves. Not that I don't like curly hair, but even with CG, mine is just too high of maintenence and too time-consuming, especially in a busy school morning. I've gotta say, this treatment changed my life! Who would've thought my hair would be this straight, and this long? It's like the curl shrinkage I had was hiding my length! How my hair looks and feels is unbelievable. It feels like satin and it took all the extra unwanted volume out. Before, I had a very dry section that was thinned out a few years ago, and that's what was bumping my hair up. All of that is gone. When I woke up this morning, it was still silky and still stick-straight, except for a few ridges on my ends, but you can flat-iron that in a few minutes. If your hair is at all dry, damaged, frizzy, unmanageable, or processed in any way, give this a try! And be sure to check out my thread, "My 'educational thread on the Brazilian Keratin Treatment". It completely changed my looks:glasses11:

I've just done this yesterday from 3:45-8:00 for about $300 (it was supposed to be $400 but they had a promotion), but that's MY length and thickness (a lot, huh?) Today is August 25th, and I washed it about 2.5 hours ago. I was very pleased to find that I only needed a half-dollar size amount of conditioner and it only took me 30 seconds to detangle it! While it was wet, it felt like wet silk and it felt 3x thinner, but what scared me a little bit is that the curl pattern itself looked close to what it was before! I thought oh, well, maybe I'm just being paranoid. It's completely dry now, and it looks NOTHING like what it was before! It is really wavy with loosely curled ends and feels like silk!

    Compared to my hair now:laughing3:It takes out about 50% of the curl. In my case, I went from a 3b to a 2c.

    Thanks, Nora! I am a 3c, and I would be happy if it just took me down to a 3a or 3b-light.

    Looks great! Enjoy!

    You're welcome :D I think you'd be a 3a or 2c once done. The more you do it, the more it'll improve.

    What did you do with your hair those first nights before you could wash it?

    I just left it down and slept on a silk pillowcase. You're not supposed to do anything to your hair (except brushing it or flat-ironing it) for the 1st 4 days. My thread: "My 'educational' thread on the Brazilian Keratin Treatment" gives a lot of info about it.

    No offense but I think it looks the same.

    It's probably because of the size of my pictures that made it look that way. Trust me, now my hair is nothing close to what it was before. It's longer, looser, doesn't shrink after washing, and not to mention it feels 3x thinner (in a good way).

    Looks fantastic! I'm so glad to see that it doesn't completely straighten your hair. I'm researching Keratin products and I've been reading a lot about the Coppola Keratin treatment. Is this the one you used? If not, can you please tell me the brand? Thanks.

    That's exactly what I used. The shampoo and conditioner I'm using is La Brasiliana.
