This past 4th of July a friend of ours showed up at their annual BBQ with bragging rights. She had just had a hair stylist friend of hers give her a Keratin treatment. We all oohed and ahhed over how soft, silky and beautiful her hair looked because of it.

My friend explained how the Keratin treatment prevented frizz and controlled her natural curl that she always fought with. I straighten my hair and hate that by the end of the work day my hair has a medium amount of frizz to it.

Interested, I asked how much it cost. She dropped the bomb that she received the discounted rate because she was a friend of the stylist. Even the discounted rate was out of my price range.

So I was thrilled to review Keratin Earth's at home system. I read the directions that came in the 4 piece set and realized this was going to be an involved process. I put Dayne down for his morning nap and got to work. You shampoo and rinse twice with their shampoo to prepare your hair to receive the treatment. It helps rinse out any product build up you may have.

Then you towel dry your hair, removing as much excess moisture as you can. This is where it got tedious. Starting at nape of your neck, use 1 inch sections of hair and apply Keratin Straightening Therapy starting at base through ends. Comb the treatment into hair. Repeat procedure, saturating entire head.

You leave the treatment in your hair for 10-20 minutes depending on what type of hair you have. The more thick/dense your hair is, the longer you're going to want to keep it on. After your wait is over you shampoo again, towel dry again and then apply the Leave-In Conditioning Masque. Apply liberally without over-saturating the hair.

I blow dried my hair until it was about 90% dry and then used a straightening iron on it. When I was done (I believe it took anywhere from 40 minutes to an hour) my hair looked & felt like I had walked out of the salon. I was THRILLED.
 But the real test was the week that followed. You are only suppose to wash your hair with their shampoo & conditioner because other brands may strip your hair of the treatment. The next day I woke up to soft shiny hair that only required a brush to detangle the pillow head. It's been over a week now and my hair is still as soft and shiny as it was after my first treatment! And it stays soft, shiny and frizz free through the day!

I cannot say enough good things about this product, it should last at least 30 days, if not longer so I see an hour out of one day, once a month as a small price to pay for envy worthy hair!

Buy your own kit from Keratine Earth's website!   Free shipping until 10/31 so hurry!

I wasn't paid or swayed to write this post, I was just given the Keratin Earth kit to provide an open and honest review!

Oh I totally wish I could afford that!! Ever since I had my kids, my hair is curly...well, not curly curly but more wavy. But then there are some pieces that are bone straight. How wierd is that? So unless I leave it to air dry, it gets all frizzy when I try to blow dry it straight. I've used serums which do help but a keratin treatment would probably work wonders!!! Maybe I'll add this to my Christmas list!!!
