I had a Coppola treatment done at Elizabeth Arden Red Door - which is usually extreeeeeemely expensive, but I had it done for $340. Where they get cha is with the extras - trim, products, etc.
They, like everywhere I've been in Kuwait, had no special ventallation system. I asked for a fan. She turned on a hair dryer. I'm like no - a FAN. My eyes stung.
It was a good treatment though. But, the products that I bought at Strands here (Acai Brazilian Blowout shampoo and conditioner) seemed to be making my hair fall out, so I stopped using it. I'm using other non-sulfur, non-sodium shampoo and conditioners.
I discovered how the Brazilian BJ's people get away with claiming they are formaldehyde free: the products dont' contain formaldehyde at over the top levels; however, when mixed together is when it happens. So I've been told with no verification of that anywhere.
I also made another discovery: some companies are now offering keratin treatments in over the counter supplies. I bought this one at CVS for $16. It is supposed to last for 30 days. There are others that are more expensive and last longer. Ya know what - for the amount of time that this stuff is seeming to last in my hair (about 8 weeks regardless of what brand), I think $16 is a good deal. I haven't tried it yet - maybe when the Coppola runs out.
