Just 5 days ago I had my hair straightened with the Keratin Straightening at I Am Salon and Day Spa! I am so exceptionally happy with my results. Twana and Amy did my hair simultaneously. It was so pain free! If you have curly hair in the humid region of North Carolina-I know you can feel my pain!!! I would recommend this to everyone. It knocked my kinks out and reduced my frizz. If you have curly hair then please try this. You will thank me. RB.
Witness the frizz and curls of our front desk coordinator, Joselyn, before Pravana Keratin Straightening . Stylist, Eden Loebbaka applied the Pravana Straightening Treatment to Joselyn's Hair. The end results are illustrated below.
Joselyn's frizzy unruly hair transformed in under two hours to sleek and straight strands. This particular treatment did not involve Thermal Straightening meaning Joselyn can still have wavy hair if she does not blow dry her hair. Pravana Keratin Straightening offers options in regards to how curly or straight one desires their hair to be.
