I have suffered with dry and frizzy hair for the majority of my adult life. My hair is thin but there is a lot of it, and it is seriously frizzy. To be honest I can never get it smooth so find myself blast drying it and desperately trying to get some smoothness into it by the power of GHD. I had thought about having a smoothing treatment many times but the price has always put me off. Upwards of £150 for something that may not work on top of the cost I would usually fork out for my hair, I just couldn’t justify it. So when Keratin Revolution invited me to meet Sam of Hair By Sam for a keratin treatment I was booked in and in Sam’s chair within a week.
Sam is based in Sale and is the expert when it comes to Keratin Revolution and their keratin treatment service. The service is called Nano Intense and is a three step system to straighten, control, strengthen and repair the hair. Sam was keen to tell me that Keratin Revolution Nano Intense is more of a smoothing system that removes all the frizz from the hair. It contains no formaldehyde which is used in a lot of other Brazilian blow-dry systems on the market and can be harmful to the hair, and takes a lot less time to do.
The process is simple and much shorter than other keratin treatments I have heard about. Sam washed my hair then applied the Nano Intense solution before placing a very attractive plastic cap on my head and popping me under a headlamp for 30 minutes. The solution was then washed off and my hair blown straight before being straightened to smooth the hair cuticles.
In terms of upkeep all you need I would need to do is use sulphate free products and Sam set me off on the right path with Keratin Revolution’s shampoo and conditioner. I love this touch as it means you are not forking out any more money on an already quite expensive service.
The results are remarkable.
Whilst I thought the results were amazing and I was totally sold on the treatment, I knew I would have to withhold some judgement until I had tried to wash and style it myself. I don’t have the most patience with my hair and I was totally convinced that my hair would never look as smooth as Sam had managed to get it following the treatment.
Using my blast dry and straighten method is shortened by at least 40% and the result I get after blast drying is the same as after being straightened normally. Running the straighteners through my hair is now a very quick process and literally just smooths it out adding a bit more shine, it isn’t needed really but I like the extra smoothing effect it gives.
Having experienced the Keratin Revolution system I am totally hooked and in 4 months when I am due another treatment, I will be visiting Sam, there is no doubt about it. For my length of hair the treatment costs £140 and should last around 4 months. For the time it saves me in styling and the look it gives, it is well worth the money. Make sure you give Sam a call to discuss your hair and how she can transform it in a few hours, tell her I sent you.
