The Six Steps Process to Healthier Hair

Who’s the blogger with the worst backlog? I am! Obviously, editing photos, in a timely manner, is not my strongest suit because these were taken last November. And since then, I had three beach trips a.k.a. my hair needs some major TLC pronto.

Anyhoo, since we’re already talking about hair, I might as well share with you the process of keratin treatments — the superheroes of uber dry and damaged hair. I’ve tried keratin treatments at several salons, all of them have used different products (Keratherapy, iCure, etc.). They all follow the same process, which is illustrated through my photos below. One treatment can take about 90 minutes or longer, and may sting your eyes.

This is my hair before the treatment. Messy and all over the place.

And voila~! Instant healthier-looking hair in 90 minutes!

POST-TREATMENT COMMENTS: The treatment made my hair color one shade lighter and straighter for a couple of weeks. My hair also became more manageable, which is great because bleach hair is awful… If only I could afford having keratin treatments every month.

CURLY OR WAVY HAIR: A keratin treatment will smoothen out frizzy, wavy and curly hair, but it’s not permanent. Your curls will come back after a few weeks or months, depending on how you take good care of your hair.

Let me know if you have any questions! :)

    I’m loving your hair Kisty! I also wanna try this but at the same time I wanna have my waves still. Still considering it though.

      Thanks Alissa! Fortunately Keratin treatments are temporary so you’ll get your natural waves after a couple of weeks!

    First off I love your hair, second off I don;t have big enough balls to pull something like that off , thirdly I am smart enough to get hair treatments at least twice a year! So at least I have that going for me!

    Hi Kisty! Just wonderin’. How often do you go to a salon for hair treatment, especially you have colored hair.
    My hair is super dry and frizzy. I am ashamed to admit that I brush my hair using my fingers. Haha! Maybe that’s why mine looks unloved and not well taken care of. ;) Few stylists have recommended me to have keratin treatment but I’m kind of hesitant to do it because it’s not permanent and I have to visit the salon from time to time to have it treated again. Do you also have any salon recommendations? :)

      Not so often! The first three months of my blonde life wasn’t so bad because I had 2-3 keratin treatments during that time. My hair was healthy despite the bleach. What made it worst was the hair ironing and beach trips. I couldn’t get a keratin treatment from salons because salt water can also strip the treatment.

      Anyway, I have no specific salon recommendations because none of them can really ~change~ your hair. Just go to any salon you trust who offers it at a reasonable price (wag lang David’s or Ricky Reyes, I don’t trust them haha) I will, however, recommend that you apply hair masks and treatments every single day. Soak it with VCO, etc. You know, the works. Then after a month, get a keratin treatment (go to Deal Grocer for offers!). Why? Because if your hair is soooo dry, one keratin treatment won’t be enough so prep it up para di sayang yung gastos mo. :)
