My friends have really got it good. By virtue of our friendship they often get to test out some of the hottest, coolest, newest beauty products known to wo-man. For example, over the years, my dear friend Chrissy has written nearly half a dozen reviews for TTB:
- Here she reviewed XEN TAN
- Here she reviewed Smashbox Halo and High Def Concealer
- Here she reviewed Mixed Chicks
Without further fanfare, here is Chrissy’s review of Rio de Keratin’s Cocolada Treatment, an at-home keratin treatment that claims to eliminate frizz, soften curl, and add shine and manageability for up to 30 days.
After one application of the “all-natural” (product claim) at-home treatment, here’s Chrissy’s verdict!
I have been wanting to try a keratin treatment for years! However I could not bring myself to commit the time nor funds required for a salon visit. Also, part of me wasn’t sure how my dry and frizzy strands would respond to the keratin process. So when Felicia approached me with Rio de Keratin, I thought – PERFECT!
After reading the directions for the at-home kit, I knew I wouldn’t be able to undertake these thick and out of control curls on my own. Help from a very good friend (Felicia!!!) is required. If you have bob length hair, you might be able to manage on your own.
My total processing time (wash, blow dry, apply treatment, second blow dry and finally flat iron) took about 3 hours. The results were immediate. My hair felt healthy and silky smooth instantly. I normally have the frizzies during the summer but the keratin treatment has been helping to keep the frizz at bay. No need for any serums or sprays to tame them anymore. A quick run through with the flat iron in the morning keeps the frizz away all day. I am very happy with the texture and shine the keratin treatment gave my otherwise dry, frizzy, hard to manage hair! See my results below:
