Anyways, the after picture is with a quick blowdry only.  No round brush or straighter.  Awesome!  My stylist also suggested getting the BB 4-6 weeks before my wedding so there is some texture for an updo.

I've tried a few of these Keratin straightening treatments now and I've definitely decided that the best products really do come from Brazil.

 

After all that's where the Keratin Treatment began life, and Escova Progressiva - as the process is known in Brazil - has been around since 2004.

 

Plus the use of Formaldehyde is banned in Brazil, and manufacturers are required by law to print their ingredients on the packaging, which makes 'Brazilian Blowout' style deceptions impossible.

 

I've been a regular user since about 2008, and in that time my hair has completely transformed from frazzled out, bleachy blond to a silky smooth sandy colour.

 

Not straightening my hair every day has really improved the conditioner, even though I swim in the sea 3, 4 or even 5 times a week.

 

I'd say, go Brazilian every time.

Re: Downtimes of Keratin straightening treatments.

Three days is a long time to wait for some of the products on the market, but the results are well worth it.

Be sure to comb as much product as possible out of your hair, before using irons too, otherwise your hair may feel sticky and be difficult to comb.

 

There are treatments that require less time, especially Escova Progressiva systems from Brazil, which usually only need two days.

 

Definitely stay away from same-day treatments as they almost always contain Formaldehyde, or at least a dreivative of it.

Well, I'm particularly fond of Cocoa Keratin System, it's a Brazilian keratin treatment that comes with the pre-treatment shampoo, smoothing treatment and daily shampoo and conditioner. I like it because the treatment lasts up to 5 months and its very safe on my hair, giving it nutrients, moisture and smoothing it down. The protein and argan oil help immensely and strengthen my hair while making ir super shiny. I recommend it :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
