Alright chicas, I'm going to cave in and get a keratin treatment that's been controversial but effective- the good ol' Brazilian Blowout. It's not a waxing then coiffing affair of the nether-regions. It's a high protein fixative treatment intended to tame frizz, which I've got a nice headful of. I've read up on it plenty and my appt is Wednesday. My mission: Color (foils high and lowlights), Cut, and *drum roll* Brazilian Blowout. I'm debating on product since I already have Pureology and Matrix here at home. BUT I could really use the masque and the serum. That adds to the change. Estimated total? Over $300. WHY?
Products (masque and serum): $65
Total: $310...not including tip
The blowout supposedly lasts 12 weeks and I'm hoping it will tame my coarse, curly ruinous hair (I home colored prior to Paris- a last ditch anti-roots effort). The cut/color is just the usual routine and the product is normal...the Blowout is the real humdinger, cost-wise. I am so curious though as to what this can do for my hair. I need something to get this mop under control.
I gotta know- what do you spend on hair care? I know in the US it varies by region. In Ohio it could be $99 for the BB- in LA, $300! So maybe I'm getting a steal by living somewhere in the middle and getting it for middle range prices?
Let me know guys, seriously. What do you pay to maintain your hair, cut/color/product wise. I'll be sure to post before/after photos. I really, really hope my husband doesn't kill me for the cost of it all, but then again, I've not *cringe* cut/colored/bought anything for my hair since oh this is embarrassing.....August. GAH!!! So I'm def. due!
