Thanks so much for your reply, Denise. I actually have had TR's and the last two destroyed my hair, despite having the most recent one done by a Liscio trainer.
TR's used to work great on my hair, but I am convinced that as I become increasingly grey, my hair does not have the strength/moisture/elasticity (or whatever it needs) to withstand a TR. Before my last two disasters, I had three years of wonderful TR's. I have always used 20 vol color (during both the "good" and the "bad" TR's) so I don't think color would have made a difference.
The Keratin treatments (I've had five over the past few years) worked pretty well to address the frizz, but the part that went over the TR caused further breakage to my hair.
My hair is now getting back into good shape. My last TR was 18 moths ago and my last BKT was about 6 months ago. My main concern is frizz reduction as I don't have a lot of curl.
I loved the TR's when they worked, but i just don't think they will anymore. I'd prefer the one-day process because I get very anxious during the 4-day waiting period. I would like to try the one-day Marcia, but if the chocolate, or another kind would be more appropriate for my course, wiry hair type, then I'm willing to "suck it up" and wait.
Thanks again for your input. You always give great advice!
