I washed my hair the first time today, and the results were far better than I expected. I followed every single instruction my salon gave me, waited agonizingly for the four day wait period, and now, I have the hair I've always wanted! I didn't even blow dry it, I just combed it, let it dry and wa-lah...no frizz, no wave, just smooth straight hair!
Before BKT, I had chemically treated hair - double processed - and my hair was dull, lifeless, coarse, frizzy. My hair is naturally between wavy and curly. I used to wash and blow dry and straighten it every single day. A friend told me about BKT and I had it done in a salon in Parkland, Florida. The salon was very good, they did my treatment in an area of the salon where they propped the back door open, had an air filter fan going, the stylist wore this gas mask looking contraption, and they provided me with a mask to wear as well. All done right and very professional. She looked at my hair and interviewed me good about what I've done with it - in the end, she said that the BKT will probably last 2-3 months on my hair. My hair is just below the shoulder and she took almost 3 hours to do it! She was ironing it is very small, tiny, pieces and several times per section so it took long. I think she really did due diligence on my hair. I paid $250 for the whole thing, not including tip.
She gave me a sheet of paper with instructions and told me to come back after the four day period so she could iron the hair again, just before I wash it. Did it with no charge and won't accept a tip again. Also, the one thing she told me to do that I never saw in any of the blogs were every time I wake up and at least 3x a day during the four day period, I should run a hair iron over my hair.
Today - I have the hair I've always wanted. No waves, no frizz, soft and smooth!
I'll let you know what happens after about a month or so!
