I assume the Fairy liquid tip works principally as a clarifying shampoo. If you're worried about the effects of it perhaps go for an actual clarifying shampoo.

Yeah that is basically it. Fairy is not for me, I don't like my hair looking like straw and thus will certainly eliminate any possibility of "shine!"

A woman I worked with used fairy on her hair and it was never the same again - it looked dreadful no matter what she tried to do with it - it just went really fluffy and seriously lacked shine.

I love shiny hair - nothing worse than crispy dry dull hair. I use Lee Stafford Sexxxy Hair in a can shine spray - only a little mind and I rub a drop of argan oil between palms and run that through my hair with great results.

I'll let you know how it goes.
well, I have just spent 2 hours putting the treatment on, it was pretty straightforward, the back was a bit tricky but I managed, blow drying with the treatment on was strange as it didn't seem to want to dry, but it did (eventually)
straightening was easy enough, the hardest part for me now is to not wash it off, I, worried about how greasy it might look tomorrow, but its the weekend so I dont have to go anywhere I suppose.
Ill update when I have washed it off and styled it.

Well done

No tying it back or tucking it behind your ears remember, if you do develop any kinks just run the straighteners over again.

Is this a genuine post or a troll post? I can't tell! I've never heard of it before but I'm rather intrigued!
I've been called a lot of things, but never a Troll I am not joking about this, it really does work for me and it has worked for others that I have mentioned it to. I notice that someone said it ruined a friends hair. I wonder if they did not rinse it out enough, it does take more rinsing than shampoo. I do use a conditioner afterwards. Have been using Fairy Liquid for years and have lovely healthy shiny, soft hair, despite it being grey underneath the colouring.

Well I have washed my hair this morning left it to dry naturally and to my surprise I have perfect smooth shiny soft poker straight hair. I am over the moon. I am so glad I started this thread and found out about this keratin kit. It was a complete success. Massive thanks x

Thanks (I didn't mean to call you a troll, I meant to write 'joke post' but either my phone corrected it or I wasn't paying attention)

I would imagine it means that even though it's raining your hair will remain straight, no reversion and no frizz! Can't be bad!

Would this work for fine hair? I have naturally wavy find hair and the slightest bit of moisture and it starts kinking, it drives me mad

Ah I see in that case I'm looking forward to it raining. I'm interested to see what it will be like tomorrow after sleeping on it.

Kookie I would say it would be fine. My hair is quite fine but with an annoying wave and frizz if left to dry naturally and it has given perfect results. I would guess it gives better results than it would on thicker hair or really curly hair.

Yeah I'm sure lots of fine haired ladies successfully do a BKT. You've got to ask yourself whether you think your hair can a) withstand the chemicals and b) whether it can withstand the searing heat of the straighteners. If your hair is breaking I would leave well alone until the damage is repaired.

Also bear in mind that the BKT hair will go back to it's normal texture eventually so you will need to re-do it at some point. The good thing about BKT is it's full of keratin (protein strengtheners) which will make your hair strong and resilient. I wish I could do it but I already chemically process my hair...

Chocoholic, many thanks for the updates. So pleased it has worked for you! I've not done mine yet as I'm growing out an undercut at the nape of my neck. This summer however, is D Day!

Can you please keep me updated with how it's lasting?

Also, one more question on this, when you have to re do it, do you just do the roots or re apply the keratin all over the hair again?

Of course ill update you. I would say it would all need doing not just the roots. I hopefully should get 3 months and would definitely do it again.
