New Hair.


Guys, get ready for a rant rave.  Big time.  Remember how a while back I got a Keratin treatment?  

According to,

This therapy is the foundation of Keratin Complex – the original, in-salon service that infuses natural keratin deep into hair’s cuticle. This revolutionary therapy eliminates up to 95% of frizz and curl and instantly adds amazing shine, silkiness and condition to the hair. The results are astounding. Clients rave that “this is a life-changing experience”. Hair is more manageable, smoother and easier to style than ever before. It is perfect on all types of hair – including color treated and chemically processed hair!

Well, my overall review of the Keratin treatment is that it is too expensive, and while it does take out some of the frizz (I guess, but who would be able to tell given the crazy Philly humidity of late), it does nothing to relax the curl.  My problem is the curl.  So, this time around I tried the BRAZILLIAN BLOW OUT!  LOVE.  PURE LOVE. 

According to, The BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT is the most innovative and effective professional smoothing treatment in the WORLD!
Through the use of a Brazilian Super Nutrient Complex and a proprietary polymer system, the Brazilian Blowout actually improves the condition of the hair by creating a protective protein layer around the hair shaft to eliminate frizz and smooth the cuticle.  The end result is smooth, healthy, frizz-free hair with radiant shine!
What makes us different?

Again I forgot to take before pictures, but I have snagged an after pic!  So my hair is normally VERY kinky and curly. 

Life is good in the upsanddownes’ hair household!  Yay!  What is your biggest best-kept hair secret?  Do tell!

NOW I don’t have to even dry it!  It can air dry and get that beachy wave look!  Wootwoot!  This is BY FAR THE BEST thing that has EVER happened to my hair!
