Wow. That's pretty expensive! I've been getting the TRs for YEARS, I've had several iStraights, a Liscio and an OptiSmooth and my hair never takes longer than 3 hours from start to finish and I've had three different salons/hairdressers do the thermals. My hair is fine and wavy, doesn't take long to iron..the longest is breaking the bonds really because my fine hair is VERY resistant.

So if my hair takes 3 hours with a real TR, I would THINK it should take less time with the BKT and so should be much cheaper.

iStraight around here averages $600, but OptiSmooth and Liscio are cheaper at $350 for a full TR generally, touchups less (chicago area).

I'm not sure I'd be paying $300 when that is the cost to purchase the BKT product from the supplier. iStraight is a bit more expensive with the training and products so to me it is justified it costs more. I'd be redoing it every couple of months or so with BKT so it would end up costing more than a real thermal.

So it would be cheaper to do a TR and same amount of time it seems. If it is just washing/drying, putting a product on and ironing with my hair that would be about about an hour and a half and I'm sure as heck not paying $300 for that!

I've had at least 1 TR every year since 2002 and they last about 6 months before it starts getting obvious it's growing out. My roots are are straight for a couple of inches before a wave starts.

Sigh.. I guess I'll cancel my highlights and make an appointment for a tr instead. At least I'd get my money's worth. Thanks for being honest about the cost. I really didn't realize it was that expensive.

I don't go to any salons that would not follow the directions or would water down the product. Every salon I've been to is pretty by the book and won't vary from their instructions at all..very ethical.
