Hi Vincent - what is the best way to find a stylist in my area who is very reputable and within my price range? I know of no one who has ever had this done. I've spoken to 2 salons now - one is where I get my hair colored and another where I walked in. Both were similiar in cost. One uses rejuvenol and the other I'm not certain of brand but they said it smells like chocolate.
Both insist there is NO formaldehyde in their product - that it is pure keratin. One price quote was $350 and the other was $250-$300.
Like I said both insist there is no formadehyde or aldehyde - that it is not a 'straightener' just a smoother and good for my hair.
Yet I keep reading there HAS to be formadehyde in these products.
I don't understand why salons say there is none it it. I'd bet if I was pregnant they'd refuse to put it on my hair though right?
I really want to try it - but I'm kinda nervous about the fumes etc. The salon that uses the Rejuvenol has no windows in it - she said my eyes might burn but it's from the protein in the product. They've been using Rejuvenol for years.
Anyway - I am in Bergen County, NJ - northern NJ. How do I find a salon - once I decide if I want to do this?
Thks - Mel
