I wrote to you a while ago after I had a TR in April of 2007. I had a really bad case of bends and had a lot of breakage. You recommended Biolustre, which pretty much saved my hair.
Now it's almost 1-1/2 years later and the TR is just about all grown out and cut off. My hair is about shoulder length and highlighted. It's a little dry from ironing and I do get some breakage at the ends, but I do the Biolustre home kit every couple of months which helps keep it from getting too bad. My regular hairdresser (not the one that did the TR) says my hair is in the best shape it's been in since I started going to him. My hair is naturally curly, pretty thick but fine. It seems to have grown out a little less curly since the TR (is this possible?) and I have a funny cowlick now where the bends were. Could this be because she put the product on my scalp and slicked my hair back with it? The product she used was BioIonic.
Call me crazy, but I'm thinking about doing TR again, but with another, more experienced stylist. The part of my hair that didn't break actually felt nice and smooth. I'm curious to hear what you think. I am convinced that the bends were caused by poor technique by the stylist.
I live in Oakland, CA. Patrick David salon is nearby in SF and Keter Salon in Berkeley has a team of stylists named Dax and Lindsey that are supposed to be pretty good at TR. Do you have any knowledge of these stylists or salons? Would you recommend them?
Am I crazy for wanting to give it another try?
Thanks in advance for your thoughts. I respect your opinion. You helped me so much last time.
