I wanted to share my BKT results. I got the treatment done (took 2 hours) at a pretty reputable NYC salon that I have not seen mentioned here. My stylist has been doing the treatment for 8 years.
Yesterday night, after 4 days had passed, I washed it out (with the recommended shampoo) and let my hair air-dry. I combed through it when wet, but other than that I let it be. Unlike with TR (btw, my hair had been TR'd previously but is almost all grown out. I also have highlights), my hair did not dry straight, nor was it ultra-silky. Instead, my curls and frizz were subdued -- it looks like a calmed down version of my hair. It's softer but not really shinier -- maybe just a little. I now have straightish hair with some texture, a slight wave. I wouldn't say my hair has been TRANSFORMED -- it's just a lot more manageable. It is NOT like the first results you get with TR. Also, the ends seem a lot drier, as my stylist predicted. Not sure if that is due to TR that is still on the ends. I am a little concerned that it will wash out much sooner than the 4-5 months my stylist cited, because the results are not as dramatic as I had hoped. Overall, I am happy with the results -- IF my hair stays the way it is after a few more washes.
I should say that it seems like it would be very quick and easy to blow-dry it straight, but I have not tried this yet.
