I HIGHLY recommend having Wendy give you the Global Keratin Treatment! Although my hair is only about two inches long right now, it is extremely curly and difficult to straighten. When I blow dry it, I end up with a huge afro that takes about a half hour to blow dry and straighten. Over the years I've tried everything from relaxers that burned my skin to perms, and nothing has ever worked. The Keratin Treatment is different than anything I've tried. The process only took about an hour and did not include any burning or smelly chemicals. When I blew dry my hair for the first time, I was amazed. I had straight hair without even using the straightening iron. Never in my life has my hair been so easy to manage. Drying and straightening time has been cut in half. My hair is so shiny and feels very soft, which is often not the case given it is so coarse. Because the sides and back are a bit fuzzy as they get longer, I do wish that the treatment could be applied to the back and sides of my hair which are too short to straighten during the treatment process. Overall though, the time savings and result of the Keratin Treatment are worth the money. Wendy is so fun and lovely that you will leave the salon not only with better hair but also a better mood!
