Subject: 1st BKT at capelli d'oro- my experince!
Date: May 6, 2007 at 7:10 am PST
i have been getting TR for probably the past 3 years (probably 2 times a year). i have fine, curly highlighted hair! i love the tr's but my ends seem to break off after each tr and my highlighted pieces always seem so brittle. I went to capelli d'oro in nyc (i live in nj) with an appointment for a tr touch up. Lesile metioned to me about the Bkt. i heard about the bkt, and it sounded good but the only thing i was iffy about was the chemical " formaldehyde". and also i didnt like that it only last 3 months while my Tr lasts over 6 months... the only part that is curly is my roots..
i decided what the heck, ill try the bkt.. so i did... It was alil weird procedure bc they give u a mask so u dont inhale the chemical. when it was done, my hair looked pretty straight, but feels very greasy. i guess its because they leave it in ur hair, and dont wash it out. it had a weird smell. i felt the formaldehyde seekin in my skin (haha). the price we pay for straight hair.. it scares me! the whole process really didnt take long at all, i was expecting to be there all day with the tr!
i waited it out for 4 days, it was torture- i felt like a grease ball.. i wanted to wash it out asap. i did it on wed and washed saturday nite. I used the shampoo/ conditioner that i bought from the salon, its by Yuko. I didnt really like the shampoo.. its like water, didnt really later! somebody told me i can use pureology bc its good 2.. i know it cant have that sodium cloride or whatever its called it.. which is salt. im scared bc i do live right by the beach and i love the sun and the water, and the pool, and hope that doesnt mess my hair up. any advice on that???
so i let my hair air dry naturally. i have natural curly hair, and my hair dried perfectly straight! it looked so shinny and healthy. i used a paddle brush just to curl under my angles a little but besides that i had no need to use a flat iron. Usually after my Tr, it would be perfect at the root but i would have some wave and frizz from breakage and would have to flatten it out with the iron, but from the BKT, it was perfect! i was shocked..
Im just hoping that it lasts.. im afraid that when the humidy comes in the summer, it doesnt frizz up. i made a appointment in 2 months and im goin to decide if i want to do the BKT again or go back to TR. Im just scared of the long term effect from the chemical.. also i want to see how long the Bkt really lasts and if i can make it through the summer humidty. well see. Im hopin for the best. Because i love highlights but i also love straight hair and the two dont always work well together untill hopefully the bkt.
Im STILL alittle iffy about this whole BKT.. i love my hair now, after the 1st wash, but what about the future? how long as bkt been around? has anybody had more than one BKT? hows there hair texture after long term effects? has anyone switch back from BKT to TR? also, does the ocean and sun ruin the Bkt? if anyone had any advice for me, please respond!
