For those of you who have been keeping up, I have put my hair through no small amount of body work. From blow-outs to dramatic chop-offs, I’ve sought relief from the normally lackluster appearance of this mane of mine. In fact, it was not too long ago that I experienced my first Keratin Straightening treatment at the Maria Bonita Salon. While I loved the immediate results of my sleeker (not straighter) hair, I quickly became frustrated at the lack of longevity of the admittedly short-term treatment fix. I was also a bit hesitant to fork over hundreds of dollars and several hours of my time to have the treatment done again, which brings me back to square one some 8 months later.
I cannot sugar-coat when discussing the natural state of my curly, frizzy mop. My hair is unmanageable at worst, and problematic at best. It could be worse, I know. But, not counting hair loss in women, frizz is probably one of the largest hair afflictions out there. Curly, frizzy, coarse, and color-treated pretty much sums it up, folks. It is for that very reason, that I am so grateful for a line that works to solve those problems, in an easy to attain and even easier to upkeep full haircare regimen. Folks, that regimen comes from brand new Keratin Perfect Haircare.
Keratin Perfect is a comprehensive line of haircare products designed to infuse hair with sleek-ifying keratin proteins, and other good-for-hair elements. The process begins with a special leave-in home grade keratin treatment, meant to deposit the good stuff into the hair via an activated gel and high heat (over 400 degrees, Fahrenheit) hair iron. The process then continues with keratin-depositing shampoo and conditioner, mists, leave-ins, and styling products, all designed to create a comprehensive regimen that keeps hair on its best behavior.
The end result is sleeker, shinier, less frizzled hair. While it took me 2 successive treatments and several weeks to really start seeing the results, I am happy to report that great results I did see. My hair is remarkably shinier, smoother, and significantly easier to manage. My curls are by no means out of commission, but they are looser. Plus, with the styling products and cleansers, my hair is staying beautiful. All in all, a huge thumbs up from me.
The full Keratin Perfect lineup is available exclusively at your local Sephora store.
