Two weeks ago, I didn’t come home from my Global Keratin treatment empty-handed. I walked out with a full set of after-care products which included Global Keratin’s Hair Taming System with JUVEXIN™ Sodium Chloride and Sulfate Free Shampoo and Conditioner. The first few times I tried the product, I was unaccustomed to having such a slick cream over my hair acting as a shampoo. It almost felt like it was sliding it off my hair.
After I showered, I was dismayed to find that my locks were still a frizzy fried mess. What happened to the silky smoothness of only a couple of days ago?
Undaunted, I proceeded to try out the serum (a personal fave of one of the Global Keratin reps) and whoa, it was like magic!
My hair became irresistibly silky and smooth without a brush or a comb. I constantly receive compliments and questions like, “where did you get your hair done?” My only gripe was that my do was still a little too flat for my taste. Then, I received a pro tip from Jasmine, the assistant stylist at the Sally Hershberger salon, to only condition and use the serum for the tips of my hair — the part that needs the most moisture. I tried this the next day and viola! My hair no longer sticks to my head at the top like an oily mess.
The wonderful feeling of being able to leave the house with minimal fuss on my hair and to keep it growing long without having to tie it up by the end of the day because it got too oily has been the best part of my treatment. If anything else changes with the condition of my hair within the next few weeks, I’ll let you know! Until then…
My hair has been through a lot. It’s undergone years of perms, highlights, curlers, dye jobs and hairspray abuse. I can go for weeks without brushing it. Sometimes, if I’m not careful, it’ll just sit as a tangled bird’s nest atop my head.
So when I heard of the Global Keratin’s Hair Taming System with JUVEXIN™, a treatment where protein compound that can restore hair back to its youthful state, I had to check it out.
My treatment was held at the swanky Sally Hershberger salon in Los Angeles where the ultra-pro stylist, Kristen and her assistant Jasmine Chang (who is also on the hit reality show, K-town, woot woot) was put in charge of styling my hair.
Now, I had my hesitations because it would seem that this system seems most effective with those who have giant, wild, unmanageable hair. As an Asian girl whose stick-straight locks isn’t usually that unmanageable, I wasn’t sure if I would be an ideal subject. I was afraid that the treatment might even make my hair flatter and I just ain’t down with that. Nonetheless, Kristen and the rest of the Global Keratin team assured me that after the protein compounds start setting in my locks, my hair may actually become fuller.
The treatment itself was easy enough with a few simple steps. After applying the treatment on my hair, my stylists blew dry and then hot-ironed the locks to set the formula in. I’m not supposed to wash my hair for the next two days (so, sorry people who have to see my greasy do!) but after that, I can do whatever I want.
I’ll be checking in over the course of the next few weeks to let you know how it works out. Meanwhile, here’s hoping I won’t have to keep wearing this anymore.
