Brazilian Keratin Alternative

I have an extreme love/hate relationship with my hair. It's sometimes the bane of my existence and then other times I'm in love. I have the curliest, frizziest, most unruly hair possible that usually takes me anywhere from an hour-2 hours to blow dry and straighten. It's a literal nightmare.

When I was on Spring Break, my hair was a mess as it was expected. The heat, humidity, saltwater and chlorine did absolutely nothing good for my tresses. I let my hair dry naturally which is a curly, frizzy mess but sometimes if I style it properly, my curls will actually look nice.

When I got home, my mom took one look at my hair and treated me to a nice blow out at a local salon; it was so nice to have my hair professionally done just for the heck of it. 

My mom and others have always asked why I never did the professional straightening treatment like the Brazilian Keratin (these types of treatment permanently straighten your hair for a significant amount of months, literally everyone's dream) and my reasoning is always that I do like to have curly hair sometimes. I love my curls when they come out good but when they don't, it makes me second guess everything.

I decided that over Easter break, I'm going to get the Keratin treatment done because I'm 100% over my hair. I need some easiness in my life and what better what to start than by never having to straighten your hair? 

In the meantime though, I needed some alternative to hold me over. I have a lot of hair products but nothing ever works quite good enough. I vowed that I didn't care how much I had to spend, I needed a good frizz maintainer/straightening tool. 

I never expected to find something this amazing.

Ever Straight has all these different kinds of hair products that are kind of on the expensive side but are well worth it because they work wonders. They have everything from Keratin treatments to Moroccan Oil shampoo, it's basically a hair gold mine. 



After browsing for a bit I chose the Brazilian Keratin Therapy Flat Iron Spray; you blow dry your hair completely and then separate your hair into sections, spray the sections and then flat iron over it. When you're done, mist the spray all over your hair to complete it. 

I used the spray this morning and it's completely changed the way I do my hair. I sprayed a lot of it all over my hair and then ironed over it and it honestly made such a difference.

My hair was easier to straighten, left it soft and shiny and didn't take as much time as it usually does. My hair is super straight today and it feels healthier.

The spray was about $10 but it was so worth it! I'm actually excited to straighten my hair now because it's made such a difference.
