Now, I have had TR done once a couple of years ago and was not happy with the results. I have extremely curly hair and all the TR did was make it frizzy and I needed to flat iron it daily. I am not sure if it was the stylist or the brand (Paul Brown).
Either way, I decided to look into having it done again. While researching, I have come across many reviews of BKT. On the face of things, it appears to be a miracle. I wouldn't consider my hair overly damaged but I have some light highlights (I have dark brown hair). I am very interested in learning more about the BKT system and if it is right for me.
However, my niece (11 yrs old) also inherited her Aunt's curly hair :) and wants to have a straightener done. My sister and I have discussed the TR but now I am wondering about BKT.
I would consider doing my own hair using the BKT system but am much more hesitant on suggesting it to my sister for my niece until I know more about it. She has virgin hair (never had more than a haircut) and I am not sure if it is right for her. Even more so, forget the hair, could this possibly hurt her health (curls aren't so bad that it is worth risking a life over)
I would like any thoughts that any of you have on the BKT system. Also, we are in Mississippi so I would be interested in any salons close to us where we could ask more detailed questions.
Thanks again and sorry for the long post!
