Last summer he was telling me about this keratin treatment that he does and how amazing it is. I planned to do it before I came back to Lagos in November, but just didn’t have the time.
I mentioned in my previous post that it was such a pleasure to go to a ‘proper’ salon again. I haven’t been to my hairdresser in Lagos for quite a long time – mostly because we haven’t really gone out much lately, but also because… Well… he’s a bit of a twat. I went to get my highlights done just before Christmas and I came home looking like a bloody tiger. My hair was orange! Apart from that (and I can’t remember if I’ve written about this before), one of the last times I went there, we were talking about how many years he’d been doing my hair. I told him that I’d been going to his salon for nine years. He said, ‘Wow! And you were so hot then. Look at you now!’ See? Twat.
I did keratin treatment with him (my hairdresser in Lagos) about two years ago. I did no research. I didn’t read any reviews or find out about any products that I needed or anything. I mentioned to Sam that my hairdresser here had said I didn’t need any special shampoo or conditioner, and he was quite taken aback. Also, I lost a lot of hair.
Anyway, so when I went to get my hair cut last Monday, Sam brought up the K Fusion by L’Kerabelle again. And I kind of really wanted to do it. He had leaflets about it in the salon and answered all the questions I fired at him. After checking when my sister was free to chill with Vins for a few hours, I made my appointment.
I went for my appointment on Thursday and went through the whole process – I can’t even begin to tell you what he did. He explained each part of the treatment as he did it – but I can’t remember it all. You can click the link above for more information!
On Saturday afternoon (before going to the airport) I went back for my first post-treatment wash and blow dry. I couldn’t believe how soft my hair was! And how easy it was to blow dry! It was amazing! But the true test would be when I washed it myself once I was back in Lagos… I washed my hair on Monday (yes, I need special shampoo and conditioner). Sam told me not to use conditioner for my first couple of washes. Again, it felt so soft – I couldn’t believe it. I combed it through and left it to dry. I looked in the mirror after a while and was amazed. The waves were there… But NO FRIZZ!
