I heard that this treatment was god for relaxed hair, because its like a conditioner....Im have very course, dry, brittle hair, i find my hair is frizzer than ever even with the relaxer treatments. The relaxer just straightins out my kink (at bit) thats about it...it doesnt make my hair straight or less frizzy.
On one of the videos online it shows a mixed(half black/white) girl with my kind of hair getting it done, and it said that it lasts longer on hair that has been relaxed, is that true?
A conditioner does not have the ability to make hair straight. Otherwise you hair would be magically straight every time you condition. Keratin is what your hair is made out of. It's a hard solid. It is only good to a point. Example, my hair is platinum blonde. When I use a keratin based conditioner for too long my hair is super super brittle because since keratin is hard and my hair is very very dry .. it won't make it soft ... it will make it brittle.
There are chemicals in a keratin "straightener". You can't make a change on the hair like this without a chemical. If you do it make sure you are SUPER SURE what chemicals are in your relaxer and what chemicals are in your keratin treatment. Mixing these two can be DEVASTATING if you're mixing two chemicals that do not get along with eachother.
