I have died and gone to heaven ... almost.

For the latter part of my adult years, I have struggled with having perfectly smooth, silky hair. My hair is THICK and has a bit of a wave to it. I can flat iron it, put every product known to man in it, step outside and POOF!

I had been wanting to do some form of chemical straightening for quite some time now. It's expensive and I was extremely hesitant because my hair is UNRULY ~ plus, do to some 'economic cutbacks' - I just couldn't justify spending $350 {and that's on the LOW end} to have something done to my hair that I wasn't SURE would work!

Well, we all have birthdays and I was completely SHOCKED when one of our dear friend's SISTER, who flies in from NC every 8 weeks and does hair. She gifted me with the Brazilian Blow-Out!! I could not believe it - I was completely speechless and forced to tears. It really was a wonderful, generous gift.


Here is my hair before: This is straight from blow-dry - very little product.

About 90 minutes later ~ seriously. I could NOT quit running my fingers through my hair. It is NOT a hard process and is COMPLETELY safe for your hair. I put it on Twitter that I was getting it done, and I had several girls message me back, letting me know they had it done and how great it was!! That got me MORE excited ~ and so I couldn't even sit still during the process.

It lasts anywhere from 3-5 mths. I think I can get 6mths out of it because we are going into winter (HA!) and I will not have the humidity. My hair still looks AMAZING and I expect it to look great for months to come!!

SO - if any of you want to get it done, live in my area (email me), Jennifer will be here in December - BUT - if you live in Eastern N. Carolina, Jennifer will take GREAT care of you! Tell her I sent you!

Tomorrow: Atlanta Re-Cap ....

i just got the Keratin treatment done...it does not straighten it but it smooths it...less frizzy curls! When I was googling about it i was freaked out about what i read about the Brazilian treatment...peoples hair was falling out...but I'm sure you get what you pay for...those people probably had it done by a salon that had no clue what they were doing!
I'm loving the Keratin treatment...it was about the same price...$360.

you hair look beautiful!

Wow! that looks amazing! I have the same wavy, unruly, thick "before hair". Flatironing is always such a hassle. I will have to look into this - it looks beautiful!

Lindsey said...

Your hair looks amazing! I have always wanted to do this but am worried about the grow out - did they tell you how that would work? My hair is extremely curly and I flat iron it multiple times a week. I wonder if your girl could fly up to Seattle and do mine, haha! :)
