I have struggled with my frizzy, coarse hair for as long as I can remember. It’s super thick, hard to manage, and a huge pain to style every single day. I blame it all on my parents. My Dad had a big ol’ Afro in high school, so I was either “blessed” with his hair genes, or the damage was done when my Mom spiral permed my hair over and over again as a child. Either way, my hair has been torturing me for as long as I can remember.
In high school, I wanted straight hair so badly that I would literally place a hot iron (pre-flat iron days) on my hair to flatten it out. I wasn’t the least bit concerned about burning myself. I just wanted straight hair!!
When the flat iron was finally invented and made available in stores, I jumped for joy. I could finally get my hair straight without worrying about burning myself, and I could reach areas I couldn’t with a regular iron. I have been using a flat iron (one of the expensive and super fancy ones that goes all the way up to 450 degrees) for many years now. The flat iron helps me to achieve the straight-haired look that I want, but it takes FOREVER for me to straighten my hair every day, and it also damages my hair quickly, due to the constant high heat exposure.
I’ve been wanting to try a professional keratin treatment on my hair for several years now, but they are very expensive. I just don’t have extra hundreds of dollars laying around to get my hair professionally straightened. It was always one of those “maybe some day” things for me.
When I heard about Zelo Brazilian Keratin Smoothing System, I jumped at the chance to try it out. This is a treatment I could do by myself, in the comfort of my own home, and best of all, it is very affordable!
I had really high hopes for the Zelo Brazilian Keratin Smoothing System, and it did not disappoint! The treatment was very easy to apply. I first washed my hair with the clarifying deep cleanser and then sprayed the Action Keratin on and left it in my hair for 45 minutes. The solution didn’t burn my scalp at all, and the aroma wasn’t overwhelming either.
After following the instructions, and rinsing the treatment out of my hair, I instantly noticed a difference in the texture of my hair. Even while soaking wet, my hair was very smooth and straight. Normally my wet hair is a mixture of curls and frizz, and just all over the place. If I let it air dry, it looks like this:
Thick, poofy, frizzy, coarse, dry.
It took me much less time to blow dry my hair than it ever has before. The instructions say to go over your hair with a flat iron after drying your hair, to seal in the treatment. If the instructions hadn’t said to do that, I honestly would not have, because my hair was straight enough after just blow drying it. That was a first for me! Usually after blow drying my hair, it’s a big ball of frizz.
The treatment says that it will last up to 30 washes, and I have found that to be true. I used the treatment quite a while ago, and my hair still feels soft and is much quicker to dry and style now.
I would highly recommend the Zelo Brazilian Keratin Smoothing System to anyone who has frizzy, coarse and difficult to manage hair. This treatment has saved me so much time and energy, and I love the way my hair looks now!
