Women who lust after long, silky straight hair can realize their dream with a trip to Byron in Beverly Hills and a session with Alina Ratta. Yes, of course, other salons perform this miracle mane making procedure, but Alina has this knack that makes it last longer and look better.
Alina did her Smoothing Therapy by Keratin Complex on me a week ago today, September 6. Alina advised not getting my hair wet for four days, “But if you do, flatiron it right away,” she ordered. I followed her instructions and just washed my hair today, a week later with a sulfate-free soy based shampoo. Without blow drying, flat iron or product myhair shines like the sun. It a mane miracle. Thanks Alina.
Now Keratin treatments and its kin, Brazilian Blowouts have been getting a lot of flak lately for the containing formaldehyde but Alina says it doesn’t scare her and her clients love both treatments which she performs at Byron. If you go to http://www.keratincomplex.com/ and click on the box that says “KeratinComplex stands Behind Our Products” you will learn more about it.
This Examiner has had both Brazilian Blowouts and other Keratin Treatments and swears by them especially since I am also a travel writer who obviously travels extensively. Once you have a treatment you hair is so manageable and all you have to do is shampoo and go without a blow. You can blow if you want to dry faster and even use a flat iron for extra sheen, but it’s not necessary.
Keratin treatments take about 90 minutes and last for three months. If you can go to Beverly Hills easily, you might want to have yours done by Alina at Byron at 9294 Civic Center Dr Beverly Hills, (310) 276-447. If you need color, too, ask for Debi Dumas, she's the best in the westside of Los Angeles. For those of you who live on the otherside of the hills in the San Fernando Valley I suggest Tammy Kranzo, who also does amazing color, cuts and styling, in Woodland Hills, who doesn’t have a web site but you can phone her at 818-347-1900.
