LaCoupe orgnx Brazilian Keratin 14 Day Smoothing At-Home Treatment
March 5, 2012
We tell our girlfriends, we don't care to be taller, or skinnier, we want luxurious hair - we have serious hair envy. When we were 6, a hair stylist grabbed our hair and said "she will never have hair" crushed at the age of 6. All we have ever wished for was hair that bounced and had weight and more importantly was frizz free. If you are like us and have fine hair that is limp and frizz prone then you will want to take note.
Our hair dresser suggested a Brazilian Keratin treatment and we were skeptical as we were not interested in pin straight hair. All we wanted was to have silky hair, that did not frizz when the humidity hit 70% and that we could curl or wear straight depending on our mood. So across our lap comes LaCoupe orgnx Brazilian Keratin 14 Day Smoothing Treatment. The box read "this strengthening keratin protein would eliminate up to 95% of the frizz". We were giddy with anticipation and excitement. So off we went straight to the beauty connexion test kitchen.
The how to
1. Wash hair with LaCoupe orgnx Clarifying shampoo, rinse well and towel dry.
2. Apply the LaCoupe orgnx 14 day Smoothing Treatment from roots to end. and comb through.
3. Leave on the hair for 30 minutes ( processing time ). DO NOT RINSE OUT.
4. Blow dry hair until fully dry. Flat iron your hair as the high heat seals the keratin protein into the cuticle
5. Do not wash your hair for 48 hours.
The end result? Smooth, silky and less frizzy hair. Yup, and it lasts for 14 days if not a few days more. And no formaldehyde, which has raised concerns with the FDA and Health Canada ( all Brazilian in-salon treatments, with formaldehyde in the ingredients, be pulled out of salons ). Formaldehyde is used to adhere the keratin to the hair.
After the first shampoo, our hair is silky and smooth and it lasted for 14 days, since using the treatment for the last few months, our hair keeps getting healthier and less frizzy even when the humidity hits 70%.
