Hair is a matter all women are very focused on. During many years I relaxed my hair and noticed that it wasn’t the healthiest product to use for them. Two years ago I cut my hair off almost 4 inch, and decided to finally quit relaxing them.
For almost a year I haven’t relaxed them. I would only get braid or wear full weave with closure or wigs. After getting back to my natural texture I wanted to straighten them because natural hair is very hard to tangle, and I am more comfortable with smoother hair. I tried the keratin straightening treatment. After straightening them in a professional institute I trimmed all my ends on a regular basis, and I can only say that I am amazed.

I think that keratin is a life savor because it allows you to have perfectly smooth hair for at least 4 months. What is also great about this treatment is that it does not completely straighten you hair, it helps them become easier to detangle, and easier to straighten without completely supressing your natural texture. This treatment is not cheap, and must be done by professionals if you are not sure about what you are doing.
To keep my hair strong, and in good health, I try to avoid heat, and still wear wigs and full weaves. I try not to leave any hair out, especially when it’s cold. Even though people think it’s not natural I don’t care. The most important for me is growing my hair and feeling comfortable with it.
My last Keratin Treatment + Trimming
A thing to remember when taking care of your hair is using products that are compatible with Keratin so that your hair can stay smooth.
My Process :
- Before getting my hair weaved or braided, I make a shampoo with special shampoo that contains keratin treatment + a conditionner.
- Then I moisturize them with a cream from the same brand.
- Once I am ready to get my hair done I protect my edges with the Morrocan Oil serum.
- One thing to know is that once you wear a weave, you must pay attention not to pull too hard on your hair when you brush them because it can break your edges.
I repeat this process every month. I wash my hair once a month and treat them every 4 to 5 months with a keratin treatment.
This is the secret to how I grew my hair.
Simple right ?
