“It” saves you time. “It” saves you frustration. “It” saves your arms. But most of it, it saves your sanity. At least that’s what I had been told for years. Were they right? Now was my turn to find out. Turns out, “it” was the miracle I had been searching for my entire curly-haired life.
After swearing off relaxers, I saw Keratin Straightening treatments as the devil’s little sister, but nothing could have been further from the truth. After 4 hours and $380 (plus tip) I walked out of Sorella Salon feeling like a brand new woman.
The process is expensive and time consuming, but the results speak for itself. After two days of dodging every source of moisture possible (it’s important to keep hair completely dry and straight for 72 hours following the treatment), I washed my hair and – gasp – let it air dry. I couldn’t believe my eyes, or my hair, for that matter. It was soft, smooth and wavy. Just like my little sister, who I always resented in a very, very minor way because she had been “born” with “good hair.” As it turns out, I had also been “born” with “good hair.” I just needed the help of a professional to find it.
Self-improvement is a never ending process, so I continued my endeavor for game-changing products with Bio Oil, Fat Hair Spray and Keranique Lift and Repair Treatment Spray. After a few weeks of using Bio Oil, my skin has transformed into a soft version of itself I’d also never experienced before. Unlike most face lotions, Bio Oil was absorbed into my skin instead of sitting on top of my pores. This miracle in a bottle can be used all over to help improve the tone and texture of your skin and you can expect results in about 3-4 weeks with regular use.
Now that the time it takes to style my hair has been cut in half, I’m having a great time exploring different styles thanks to Fat Hair Spray. This stuff is like cement in can without all the weight, yes please! Whether your hair is straight, wavy or somewhere in between – this stuff effortlessly freezes your hair into its place for worry-free styling.
