I just washed after my Global BKT with Tommy. I have had Global before, but these are my best results ever. My hair is pin straight after rough drying it (no brush) for 5 minutes. Super shiny also!
My hair history is that I used to get TR with great results until I had to start coloring to cover gray. I am 15-20% gray. I have not had TR in about a year, but my hair is down to my bra strap in back, so I still have a fair amount of TRed. I once had Lasio, but that only lasted 6 weeks. Since then, I have had 2 other Globals, one with 2%, and the other with 4% formaldehyde. Both Globals lasted 3 months, but keep in mind that I wash every day due to working out. I noticed no difference with 4%, so I am back to 2%. Last time, I had an awful smelling strawberry formula. This time, I had the much better smelling acai scent. But Tommy says that they are discontinuing acai, so I hope that there will be some future alternative to strawberry.
Tommy is super nice and down to earth. He is very professional and fun to talk to. He was also very accommodating in getting my color formula from the beauty supply store for me (I paid him the cost of the extra color product, of course). That way, I did not need to go elsewhere first in order to get colored. He also trimmed the layers around my face, and that came out nice too.
His salon is very comfortable and the other stylists are also down to earth and easy to be around. The shampoo woman did a great job too.
Overall, it was a great experience, and I wish I could pack him up in my suitcase to take up north with me in the summer. :)
