From: Too Straight (184.108.40.206)
You mentioned that your salon does CDR in a previous post and I was wondering if you could give me an idea of whether or not it would work for me.
I used to do TR (Liscio) with great results, until about two years ago when I had major breakage due to overlapping. Since then I've done BKT several times (which made my hair feel very dry and stiff). Most recently, I did another Licio TR with a very experienced stylist. My hair did not break this time. However, it totally lacks body and movement.
I've consulted with two other stylists who tell me my hair feels healthy and strong, but agree that it is way too straight.
My natural hair is course, thick and about 50-70 percent grey. It is not so much curly as big and puffy naturally. Before I got the most recent TR, I could have it blown out professionally with good results. However, after an hour or two in the humidity it would go back to being poufy, so I really need some kind of straightener. The fact that TR's used to work so well on me makes me think that my hair may have changed due to the aging greying process. However, my hair does feel like it's relatively strong and healthy.I single process color it and do conditioning treatments on a weekly basis (mostly moisture, rather than protein). The problem is it has absolutely no movement. I recently had it cut and thinned, which made it look even worse. It's so straight that the texturized parts stick out and look like straw.
Sorry for the long post .... I am just wondering if you think CDR might be an option for me when I am ready to straighten my hair again.
I'd also like to know what happens when the CDR wears off.
Also, do you think Liscio smoothe control might be an option for me.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
