TREATMENT: KeratinPerfect Smoothing Duo, $65-
CLAIM: Transforms damaged texture, repairs weak keratin bonds. A protective seal locks in moisture while repelling humidity, UV rays, and pollution for up to 30 days.

THE REVIEW: “After coating my whole head in KeratinPerfect formula, I waited ten minutes and then blow-dried and flat-ironed, which is supposed to seal in the treatment. My hair looked shinier and felt smoother. I wanted silky-smooth hair without having to straighten with a flat iron, which I definitely got, but my scalp felt a little itchy and my hair slightly weighed down. It looked great for three days and now I would say it’s 75 percent back to its original wavy state.”
