SCAM ALERT!!! SCAM ALERT!!!!
I called Jean Leon Salon, NYC for a price for the Coppola treatment and was told $350 and up, come and see a stylist for a price. So I met with Drita, she said $350. I even questioned it because I have thick hair, but she said that's it. Then when I went in 2 weeks later at the end they charged me $600!!!!!!! Drita said 'you have a lot of hair' with a straight face and denied giving me the other price.
I argued a lot and finally they brought it down a little, but now I'm mad that I paid anything over what she told me.
My hair is colored over grey and very coarse and frizzy normally. I've been airdrying it--it's been 3 weeks-- and the waves are slowly coming back, but without the frizz. Now I need to find another place to have it done!

I am a stylist. I am certified to perform this treatment. First thing I must say is that this product doesn't contain formaldehyde. I have the MSDS sheets on this product and know for a fact it doesnt contain anything bad. It is not to be confused with ANY other type of straightening product. KCT doesn't elimate all curl,( we use the term "drop" curl especially if you have really curly hair. It will drop curl, how much really depends on what type of curl you have, you may have to do the treatment more than once, I have also recommended to many of my clients that have very curly hair to do their regular relaxer first then do this. If done properly and you make sure you take care of your hair the way your suspose to then it will work great for you. There is specific shampoo and conditinoer that KCT makes that your stylist should give you. If you dont use the right products the treatment will not last!!!

Fly away hair during this process is actually a good thing...flyway or "static hair means your hair is very balanced. This is a good thing. You will be fine.

Hi helpless hair :) my hair is about and inch to 2 above my waist, thick and was always frizzy. I had the treatment done 7/30 and it's still frizz free. I don't even blow dry it anymore and it dries perfect. I was in Mexico for a week, and it's extremely humid there and not once did I blow dry my hair.

I forgot to mention, if you want to take a ride to NJ (Manalapan/Englishtown), Nadia's is the salon I use and Jen did a terrific job.

You must blow dry your hair after you wash it to get it perfectly straight again. I love this treatment!! I had very frizzy curly hair prior to the treatment. Worked perfect for me! But again, I must blow dry it. Letting it air dry leaves it a little bit wavy.

It really all depends on the person because I do not have to blow dry my hair at all and it is perfectly straight.

I am a Hair stylist and I use the Marcia Tiextiera Keratin Treatment. THey do carry a formaldehyde free Product that performs equally conditioning to the hair as the one that contains the formaldehyde. However it does not straighten the hair as well as the formaldehyde one does. But you still take out the frizz and relax the curl some. My clients love it. bravosalon.net

i have had the bio-ionic treatment several times, i like it, but it does grow out and my hair line around my face lifts like a sponge. i live in a very humide area and i hate how my hair is effected by the weather. the bio-ionic does work but it does break off and do damage, will the keratin fight humidity? i don't necessarily want pin straight hair, i just want frizz, sponge less, nice shiney soft looking hair!! if i lived in vegas, i wouldn't have to do any of these treatments as their isn't any humidity!
please advise..........i'm ready for treatment!!

Even though it says aldehyde, it is a form of fromaldehyde. why would you want to heat up embalming fluid to over 400 degrees, let the noxious gases float around you and the people you work with, just because its making a bit of money?? Its killing you. It is the reason I have had to leave the business.
