In Reply to: Great review. Let us know how it looks after you wash! posted by cmc on March 19, 2009 at 5:00 pm:
I washed my hair 72 hours after Herve's TR. It came out perfect, pin straight (the way I like it). As far as I can tell, after about 15 minutes of examination in the mirror, there are no under or over processed spots. What I really like is that Herve got very close to the root. Even though my hair is only wavy (not curly), the wave starts very close to the root. The only other time that I had someone besides Jay do my TR, he started it too far from the root, and it shaved a month off the usual life of my TR (I had to get a touch up sooner). Herve seems to have gotten as close to the root as Jay does.
I do need a cut now, because Jay always includes that and Herve did not ask if I wanted one. So I will go to my stylist here. Maybe, now that I feel confident in Herve, I will ask him to do a cut next time.
Herve recommended that I get a BKT between my TR touch ups. He compares the BKT to a top coat of nail polish - a varnish that just goes over and makes it shiny. I think I might do that over the summer.
Anyway, I am just relieved that it worked out with Herve, and feel happy that I have someone new to go to for TR and maybe BKT. He is definitely worth the trip from Philly to the Bronx. I definitely recommend him. I also love Jay, and if Fort Lee, NJ is convenient for you, you should absolutely see Jay. I think both Jay and Herve are at the same level - masters of TR!
