QOD Max Keratin Treatment Review
Curly and Unruly Hair
My hair has always been very course, thick and curly. Tending to be frizzy and dry, it needs a lot of styling products before it can begin to look sleek and shiny.
I have been flat ironing my hair for some time using a ceramic flat iron and a basic flat ironing protectant. I was not really happy with the way my hair came out, and getting it straight was a large investment of time everyday.
I have never wanted to use chemical relaxers, because of the horror stories I have heard about hair breaking off.
I spent quite some time researching the internet looking for my best options for getting a Brazilian Blowout.
After some reading I realized there were several different product lines, which have been reviewed mostly with mixed results (Brazilian Blowout, Rejuvenol, Coppola).
Based on reviews I decided to go with the QOD Max treatment w/cocoa extract.
The product itself was a lot larger than I expected, containing enough product to last me for quite some time. I was very pleased with the value of this product. The whole bottle cost me less than one single treatment in the salon.
This product has the consistency of a creme conditioner, and the smell of sweet chocolate. It went on easily with an application brush.
During the blow drying phase my eyes began to water terribly and I had to take a break and get a fan for the bathroom. It doesn't have a chemical smell, but it irritated my eyes a lot.
After my hair was dry and flat ironed at 450° it became extremely manageable. Did I mention I needed to upgrade my flat iron to a professional model that reached a temp. of 450º?
Although the product feels a little heavy or sticky on the hair, it is also very sleek and pretty.
I waited 72 hours as is recommended by many people on the internet.
I can't say how wonderful this is for my hair. It makes straightening my hair a snap, I spend very little time and have attractive, healthy, shiny hair. I will never, ever stop using this stuff, it is the solution for my problem hair!
