I have been lurking on this board ever since that NY Times article came out about BKT. After having a horrendous experience with TR, I was leery of doing anything, and had pretty much resigned myself to a lifetime of poofy hair.
Based on what I read here and on other forums, I decided to go ahead with it. And, OMG, if it even stays a fraction of how straight and sleek it is right now after I wash it in four days, I will cry (with joy).
This is the hair I have always wanted.
My natural hair is very thick with a stubborn wave in the back. Everytime I have ever gone to a salon, one of the first comments the stylist makes is that my hair is the thickest they've ever seen. I have a round face so when you add big hair, I feel like my head is three times the size of my body. Last winter, I started wearing knit hats inside for the first two hours of work because it helped keep my hair down (a bit) for the rest of the day.
Anyway, after my BKT treatment today, my hair is straight, shiny, doesn't feel frizzy or damaged- actually it feels better than it normally does. I still have some body, so it doesn't resemble the horrible weird straight that came with me TR.
So, we'll see what happens after I wash it on Wednesday. But so far, I am really thrilled. I hope I am not disaapointed :)
