Reaction To Keratin Treatment - Brazilian Blowout
Let's see, the first time i had eat Brazilian Blowout treatment, the chemicals where very strong i couldn't breathe and my eyes burned and teared throughout the whole process. I told myself i would never get it done again that was until i saw the results.
My hair was straight, shiny and very flat. Maybe it didn't look great to others but going from very thick curly hair, it was nice to not wash my hair everyday.
Two days after the treatment and for about two weeks, I had severe dandruff. Talk about embarrassing. Nothing worked and I had to be careful using harsh shampoo since it would wash it out. After that I noticed a TON of split ends. My girlfriends also had the treatment but did not experience these (or any of my reactions) results so I thought maybe it was in my head.
After my thick hair started to reappear and my memories of the reactions faint in my mind, I decided to get it done again . This time the reaction was worse . Not only did my eyes burn and tear, i started coughing and my throat was burning so bad i asked him to stop and wash it out. He took a break, had me calm down and got me some water. I was scared but i trusted him. so we continued with the treatment . Again a few days later severe dandruff came back and split ends a plenty. Is it worth it?
When I have bad hair days sometimes i think yes but what are the long term side effects and what damage did it do. I called the manufacturer a few times to ask questions and they didn't have answers for me . Yes it's nice to have soft flowing hair to run your fingers through but does it cause cancer, will I loose my hair.
I'm sticking to my curls . check out naturallycurly.com . I don't work for them but i wanna promote natural curls we should not be subjecting ourselves to harsh chemicals. It works for you and you have no reaction then good for you but for the rest of us, we should listen to our bodies . it's trying to tell us something.
