I'm very excited to share with you in this blog post an experience I had last Thursday!
A few days ago, I got an invite from Joy and Jennifer of Keratin Complex Philippines to try out their Keratin Complex Treatment at Smooth and Straight Salon at Makati during their Frizz Free Finish Week. Also in the invitation were a few info on what Keratin Complex can do for our crowning glory and also an introduction to their newest brand, The Macadamia Natural Oil. If you've read some of my previous posts, I've been trying out ways to manage my hair better so I was very interested to check this out.
Along with their invite were these promo materials which made me more curious about the said brands...
That's why I already reserved Thursday to try the Keratin Complex out! ♥
I was so ready to get a new hair style! I've been sporting curls for more than a year now and want a change for the mean time. This offer is such in good timing!
Upon arrival to the Smooth and Straight Salon, I was greeted with friendly smiles. I met Jennifer who gave me an overview of the treatment session. They really made my stay comfortable and offered me drinks like coffee or iced tea, but I went with just plain water (I also had an interview that day and I didn't want me to go to the CR a lot, haha!).
There were also cookies!! ♥
The stations in the salon also had the promo images of the Keratin Complex and Macadamia Natural Oil. I believe they are the main distributor of the brands' products here in the country.
On to the treatment...
Honey, the salon's head stylist, was in-charge of my treatment along with Jane. They were really nice and answered all my queries about the procedures.
First off, they cleansed my hair with a clarifying shampoo. It is very important that the hair is free of oil and dirt so the treatment will be taken in properly.
Loving the painting at the shampoo/ rinsing station! The artist in me says, "Yayyy!"
After shampoo, they applied the Keratin Treatment... I had the Keratin Complex Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment.
It was left on my hair under a hair cap for 30 minutes first...
Good thing they supplied me with all these magazines! All of them were new! August to September 2012 issues! Great way for me to catch up on what's new in fashion and beauty (and a bit on entertainment too!).
Then, Jane blow dried my hair (while the treatment was still there, no rinsing), and when it was completely dry, Honey started to straighten my hair with a straightening iron so the heat will make treatment bond with my hair more.
Only my bangs left to iron and we're done!
And oh! They also gave me a free hair cut to get rid of the super dry ends of my hair.
So let me refresh you on what my hair looked like before...
Ends of my hair were all dry and also frizzy...
And here's what my hair looked like after the session!
Well, hello straight, smooth, and healthy looking hair!
It looks healthier and has more volume compared to having my hair rebonded which just looks so flat and lifeless! Super love the results! ♥
And what made things better was that they gave me a Keratin Complex Shampoo and Conditioner to maintain my newly treated hair! Yayyyy!! ♥
After the session, I asked Jennifer and Honey more about the treatment.
♥ I learned that I can get the treatment again within 3-5 months.
♥ It is a better way of smoothening and straightening hair compared to rebonding or relaxing which have chemicals that are quite damaging to our crowning glory.
♥ The more you get the treatment, the healthier your hair gets!
♥ The salon gets a lot of clients that avail the treatment, they have at least 1 or 2 a day.
♥ The treatment is widely used internationally as well!
♥ Other than the shampoo and conditioner, Keratin Complex also have other products to maintain the smoothness and radiance of our hair.
Of course, before leaving, I had to take pictures with people! Haha!
Too bad I wasn't able to meet Joy that day. But she called me the next day and was nice enough to ask about my experience. ♥

And of course, don't forget the vain shots!
My hair's so smooth, I can't help but touch it time after time. It feels so light too!
It definitely gave me more confidence as I walk along the streets of Makati! Haha!
But for now I have to endure 3 days without shampooing. I'm not even allowed to ponytail my hair. It easily gets oily which can be annoying. Good thing it's the weekends and I don't have to go out. :P
