hey all - Ok, I had this page book marked from a few years back, when I saw TR on Oprah. At the time I never heard of it. Anyway, I was dying to do it and was reading on here for months. Eventually I just chickened out and I never wound up doing it. Now, I am reconsidering it again. I just cant take the 30-35 minutes of blow drying my hair anymore.. the getting up early in the AM so I have enough time to do my hair, etc.. I've beenlate to work for it, plenty of times..I'm at an age now (33) where I just dont have the time or patience but love the way it looks. Also, I hate worrying about the weather..etc..Plus, I would mind saving on my electric bill - hahaha...anyway...
- I see there is a new one everyone on here is talking about "BKT" - never heard of it - whats the difference?
A girl at my job gets japanese straightening done somewhere in queens NY (we live in NY) for really cheap.. like 150.00, by some guy..and it looks great. It's straight and shiney and looks really healthy. She's gone for about 3 touch ups now.. (she's had it for a while) but I am still of course, chicken..her hair is SO straight.. she comes in with her hair wet and it dries pin straight..all the way down the her ends.. i dont know if I want my ends to be that straight. I like when they are a little curled under.
With all that said, I also color my hair w/ Semi-permanent color ( to cover a few greys). In addition, my hair falls out alot too.. (from all the drying and ironing etc..I can make a wig with whats on my bathroom floor byt the end of the week!) so thats the main reason why I am so nervous.. i dont want to go bald. All in all my hairdresser says my hair is in great condition (minor breakage, etc) - I really baby my hair... so I dont know what to do.
Any advise from anyone?
