I’m a big fan of Brazilian straightening treatments and was really excited to try one specifically formulated for course hair types and perfect for afro hair; welcome KS KeraStraight KS Intensive.
I headed to the fantastic Lisa Shepherd salon in Central London and was greeted by the lovely Sara, after a thorough consultation about what I expected from the treatment and my general hair routine, she got to work.
The treatment is a three step process, first the hair is washed with a clarifying shampoo to remove all trace of grease and ready the hair for treatment. If you have just had your colour done, beware - the clarifying shampoo can strip toners and may change the colour. The next step involves the application of the treatment section by section, lastly the hair is dried and finished off with a straightener, making it extra smooth.
With this treatment you can wash your hair the same day, the result? Frizz free and super smooth locks. My hair is naturally curly, very thick and extremely frizzy and this treatment was so good that after blow-drying I don’t even need to go over it with the straighteners. If I do decided to leave it to dry naturally it has a gorgeous wavy finish with minimal fuzz.
Make sure you invest in sulphate free shampoo to keep your treatment tip-top! Come on ladies bin that relaxer and try a KeraStraight KS Intensive.
