Makeup is fun! makeup doesn't judge! Man or woman, gay or straight, regardless of age or race - it doesn't matter! DO YOU! Do what makes you happy! Wear no makeup atall or wear full on smokey eye, huge wing, loads of glitter and a bright red overdrawn lip to the supermarket if that's what makes YOU happy!

This has Changed my Life.......

For as long as I can remember I have hated my hair! I cant even call it curly, it is just pure frizz that is impossible to style. Over the past few years I have had numerous treatments done at different salons to try and straighten it to make it easier to manage. Although I have had great success with some products, they have damaged my hair and made it to fall out. 

When I heard about the Brazilian blow-dry I was intrigued, mainly because people were saying it did absolutely no damage to your hair. I researched 4 Local Salons and the products they use and decided to go with The Cutting edge Salon who use Cocochoco keratin treatment.  

Before Treatment- Just washed and left to dry!


Before the treatment I was asked to wash my hair with a clarifying shampoo and not to use any conditioner. I left my hair to dry naturally, you can see from the before pictures it was extremely frizzy.

After Brazilian Blow-dry Treatment, also straightened by GHDs.


The process took roughly 2 hours. I had the treatment applied directly to my dry hair then was left for 10 minutes while it soaked in. Then the process of straightening begun. The hairdresser warned me that it can sometimes make your eyes water a little due to the heat on the treatment, so she gave me a towel to put over my eyes if I wanted to. A couple of times during the process I found my eyes were watering and quite nippy but it was no big deal and the towel was helpful.

You can see above the results after the process was finished. I was impressed, but was excited to see what it would be like when I tried to style it myself and how long it would stay straight.

I was advised to keep straightening my hair regularly, not to put my hair up and not to wash my hair for at least 3 days and when I did to use a sulphate free shampoo. It took some time to find a shampoo that was sulphate free but eventually I found this Schwarzkopf one on Beauty Bay.

Styling my own hair
Blowdry
Straighten
I will be totally honest it really was a nightmare not washing my hair for a few days. It wouldn't usually bother me too much but The treatment made my hair look extremely greasy, which was really embarrassing. The fact I also couldn't tie my hair up was also frustrating. Saying that, It was all 100% worth it! 

You can see from the pictures above that the treatment has made styling my own hair easy for the first time in my life. None of the treatments I have had in the past have made my hair so straight. What's even better is I have had no hair fall out and my hair is actually in far better condition than before the treatment.

It has been a couple of weeks since I had the Brazilian blow dry, I can honestly say it has completely changed my life! This may sound quite dramatic but I honestly felt so self conscious before and no matter what I did I just couldn't style it myself which was making me miserable. I could not be happier with the result and will continue getting it done every 3 months as recommended by the salon.
