Test Driving KeratinPerfect 30 Day Brazilian Hair Smoothing System!

KeratinPerfect 30 Day Brazilian Hair Smoothing System - $235 - contains full size: PerfectPrep Pre-Treatment Clarifying Shampoo, The Perfector 30-Day Hair Smoothing Treatment, PerfectCleanse Keratin Enhanced Shampoo, PerfectSilk Keratin Enhanced Conditioner, a travel size of PerfectRenew Daily Keratin Replenishing Spray, a PerfectSleek cutting-edge next generation digital titanium plate 450 degree flat iron as well as a KeratinPerfect Brush and clips.

I've been intrigued by keratin treatments for a couple of years now ever since the salons started doing them as a regular service and I keep meaning to go in and try one but never seem to find the time.

If you aren't familiar with what keratin does for your hair - it's actually a natural protein that is in healthy hair but that is depleted over time due to styling and environmental damage which causes frizz and dullness. I figured a salon quality treatment I could do at home would be the way to go if my hair was ever going to see keratin so I decided the at-home KeratinPerfect system which just came to Canada was the way to go.  What I needed was something that would be quick and easy and it delivered on both counts.

So the process goes like this:  First you wash your hair with the PerfectPrep shampoo to totally strip it; then you apply The Perfector treatment which stays in for 10 minutes; then you blow-dry your hair dry and then flat iron to seal in the keratin. That's it. The whole process took about an hour and the only downside to it is not being able to wash/or get your hair wet for 48 hours.

The system is meant for all hair types including curly, wavy, frizzy, colour-treated, damaged and chemically relaxed.
I realized that I hadn't been clever enough to take a before picture so this one from a couple of weeks back at an event will have to do - my hair actually is flat ironed in the picture but you can see that it's still not entirely straight and also frizzy.
After the KeratinPerfect treatment my hair is poker straight, defined, shiny and almost entirely frizz free!

The KeratinPerfect system is now available in Canada at Sephora and if you already have a good flat iron or once you use up the products included in the set you can buy more products separately and save yourself a bunch of money!

Have you tried a keratin treatment either at the salon or at home and what kind of results did you get?
