Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy by Coppola


That's the name of the treatment I'm currently in the middle of. It's a procedure that promises to loosen my tight curls into soft waves and significantly reduce my daily frizz. Now let me backtrack. Two days ago our beauty director, Mary, sent me to Vartali Salon in NYC to test out a keratin relaxing treatment for my hair. First Piet, my hairstylist, washed my hair twice and then blew it out straight. Next he applied keratin throughout my hair with what looked like a small paintbrush. The solution was left on for about ten minutes. Then, without rinsing it out, he blew my hair straight again, and flat-ironed it to lock in the keratin with a blast of heat. An hour and a half later, I was sent on my way, my hair looking clean and sleek. That was 48 hours ago. In order for this treatment to take, you're not supposed to wash or wet your hair for 72 hours. Needless to say, my hair is looking pretty slick at this point. My scalp itches and all I want to do is douse my head with a gallon of shampoo. But it's a small sacrifice to make for what could be my dream hair! I can't wait to see what my hair looks like after the big wash. Tomorrow can't get here fast enough! To be continued... —Anita K.
