      This product does not work, like at all. It is such a long process to wash, put it all in, let it dry, blow it out, iron it, then wait 48 hours with the smelly gross product in. And then it does nothing. In fact, my hair seemed more frizzy and more curly after using it. It most definitely made my hair more dry. I am a caucasian person with very curly hair and this product was a waste of time. Don't bother buying it.

        Comments about OGX Brazilian Keratin Therapy 30-Day Smoothing Treatment:

        I used this product on my friend to test it out. I read mixed reviews about this product, so it was difficult to determine if I wanted to try this out myself. I'm glad I did! Here is a little hair over view:
        December 2014 went platinum
        January 2015 went violet
        February 2015 went red
        March 2015 went brunette
        My friends hair was over processed and frizzy because of it. When wet it would tangle and would shed (break). We put this treatment in her hair and followed directions exactly as stated! I sectioned her hair into 6 sections and clipped them up. I used a color brush and bowl. I poured a palm full amount of product in the bowl. (for her collar bone (thick) length hair. I applied a thin coat over each 2 inch sections then comber through. Let me tell you a little goes a long ways! When finished (blow dried and flat ironed) with the product in her hair it was soft shiny and smooth! no build up, no frizz, no anything! and after 48 hours with her 1st wash her hair was still nice and soft! she could comb her fingers through her hair again! her hair looked like she never lightened (bleached) it. I still have plenty of this product left and will continue to use this on her. She had no hair side effects. were going to put on her human hair extensions! I will post a youtube video on the process soon! (OGX keratin therapy 30 day smoothing treatment before and after) ;)

        Comments about OGX Brazilian Keratin Therapy 30-Day Smoothing Treatment:

        This product was literally a waste of my money. It left my hair super oily, some of the product clumped and dried up to make my hair look like it had dandruff, both my hair and flat iron smelled horrible and when I washed it out, I didn't notice a difference. Do not buy! I repeat, do not buy this product.

          I've done 30 days keratine treatments before ( other brands) and they worked wonders. This one didn't work at all. Actually made my hair feel dry at the ends. I followed the instructions, didn't wash it for 48 hrs, the smell was killing me but I waited the recommended time. Waste of time, money and total disappointment. My hair is naturally wavy not even curly and did nothing to it is still curly.

              I've had Brazilian Blowouts done in the salon in the past, but of course, they are expensive. I'm half Iranian and my hair is coarse, curly and frizzy. I thought I'd give this a try and even went out and bought a flat iron that went up to 450 degrees. I followed the directions exactly and it took me a good part of an afternoon. Needless to say, my hair is curly and frizzy as ever. Complete waste of time.

                My hair is very dry, course, frizzy and wavy I applied this product for the first time and was amazed at the results. My hair was left shiner and definitely less frizzy. Before I would blow dry my hair and had to curl the ends with a curling iron or else my hair would be so puffy with no body, now I blow dried my hair with a round brush and it left it so healthy looking and smooth with a bounce I haven't seen in years because my hair was so damaged from dying and heat styling. I also let it air dry and still have my wavy hair but with less frizz which I love love love !!!

                I have freezy tight curled natural hair, used to kill freezy and smooth curled out. Well this product killed the freeze, shined many hair, and made my hair much healthier. The con is my curls are no more it perminatly straightened my hair. Even when I wash my hair my curls are no more. Now it is a year later after appling product and now my curles ate back and so is greediness. This product is well worth the buy.

                      I have healthy wavy, some-what straight hair so i thought this product would at least work a little. But it didn't. I followed the directions exactly, washed my hair after 48 hours and it's right back to the way it was. If it couldn't work on my hair, which is practically straight already, it won't work on yours. The 2.5 hours and all the harsh chemicals I breathed in while flat-ironing, and it didnt even work! I feel very disappointed.

                          I want to go ahead & use this product, but there is an upcoming event & I want to curl my hair that day, so my question is: when I use this product, for those 30 days that my hair will stay straight, am I not allowed to use any curl irons, or wavers? Will using a curling iron effect the product & go back to being wavy, or is using a curling iron alright & when I wash my hair it will be back to being straight? if I am allowed to use a curling iron, do I have to wait a certain time limit after applying the product to use a curling iron?

                            After following the directions, waiting 48 hours, then washing and rinsing hair, you can certainly use heat styling tools. Heat styling tools will not alter the results of the treatment.

                            For best results, use Brazilian Keratin Therapy 30 Day Smoothing Treatment 1-2 weeks prior to coloring.

                            It is recommended that a strand test, in a discreet area, be performed prior to application, especially if you have light colored or chemically treated hair. In isolated circumstances, some may experience a discoloration of the hair.

                          I've always wanted to try out the keratin treatment under the assumption that it was temporary and that my hair would return to its usual curly form after. I've heard that this is not true for many keratin treatments and that it doesn't actually go back natural all the way. Can anyone tell me from experience? (preferably from someone who doesn't often treat their hair with chemicals)

                            After only one use of OGX Brazilian Keratin Therapy Treatment, your hair will slowly begin to return to its natural state. This may take anywhere from 4-5 weeks, depending on hair type, length and texture. To accelerate the fading of your treatment, increase the frequency of shampooing and use of clarifying shampoo with sodium chloride.

                            A:

                            The OGX Brazilian Keratin Therapy 30-Day Smoothing Treatment typically works really well at smoothing thick, wavy hair. We stress the importance of following the directions precisely.
                            This treatment is not meant to make the hair stick straight (just for the initial 48 hours), but rather a smoothing treatment that will reduce about 95% of curl, smooth frizz and reduce blow drying / styling time by 75%.

                            Extra Tips:
                            • Heat is what seals the treatment into the hair. It is imperative to use a flat iron that goes to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. We advise following the directions to a ‘T’ in order for the product to work properly.
                            • Brazilian Keratin Therapy is a progressive treatment, so the more you use them, the better they work.
