The most important consideration in either of these treatments is going to be the technician who will be performing the service. Properly done they both will have their advantages and disadvantages.

While BKT is less complicated then a thermal it is by no means easy. The proper amount of lotion must be used and distributed correctly or the hair will burn under the heat of the iron(450). If the hair is not ironed correctly you will get a uneven and spotty straightness that will fade away very quickly. Done correctly it works great on chemically treated hair. It will help to rebuild the hair and keep it silky for around 3 months after which time it will gradually fade away. As it starts to fade the curl will return slowly so
the hair may look different until all the BKT is gone( around 6-9 months) Also remember that there is a bootleg version still out there that has very high levels of formaldehyde. There is only one version approved in this country so far (Marcia Texeira)

Thermal works best for clients who are looking for a more permanent solution. It is more involved in the analyzing of the hair, treatment of damage, choice of lotion etc...
There are many more steps , more chance for error but again properly done a Thermal is also a great choice.

The MOST important thing is that you find a Tech who is skilled in all aspects of hair straightening and let THEM guide you to the best choice for your hair. The level of education the consumer has today is incredible. There is so much information out there to be had. Hair today is part Science and part Artistry. We have some great techs out there with incredible information (thanks S.T. for all your hard work).

If you do not trust your Tech to make the final desicion as to the best treatment for your hair it may be time to research a different tech. I know that personally I want only what is best for my client and try very hard to achieve that.

I mean no disrespect to anyone, I just remember when TR first came out and there was so much misinformation and so many problems with people not educated properly .I would just hate to see that happen with BKT.

Trust Your Technician
