The Permanent Blow Wave
Here I go again… raving about the Bettjemans Permanent Blow Wave, a treatment that transforms curly & frizzy hair into silky smooth waves. If you have never heard about the Permanent Blow Wave, you can learn all about it by reading my previous blogs, Goodbye frizz & No more frizz, these stories will tell you all about the product & the process.
I have revisited the salon three times now for this incredible treatment & as the saying goes, third times a charm! This time round the product is new & improved making the process shorter & even better than before, as now you dont have to wait two days before you wash your hair, they do it for you in the salon on the same day.
I had my second Permanent Blow Wave in october last year, five months after my initial treatment which lasted me all winter. I was absolutely blown away by the results, the best part being that it gradually wears out of the hair, unlike Chemical Straitening when you get an unattractive band of curly re growth appearing after the first month. its important to know that the Permanent Blow Wave is not a hair straightener, so after the treatment whatever curl you may have naturally will still remain in your hair, but without the frizz.
My hair is not only curly, its super thick & often fluffy, so if its exposed to any level of humidity it grows into a hideous curly afro, making me look like a female version of Robert Plant (or as a lovely friend used to tell me in the 80′s- Dee Snyder from Twisted Sister… gorgeous!) Since I have been getting the miracle treatment from Bettjemans I have been truly amazed at how my hair has literally NO frizz anymore & even in dense humidity it still sits in soft waves with nary a hint of the dreaded frizzies. It has also been in incredible condition & I am constantly amazed how little product I need to use to keep it controlled.
Today I washed my hair myself using the prescribed ‘Kerastraight’ shampoo & conditioner (you must use a sodium chloride free product as regular shampoo will strip the Keratin from the hair shaft), lightly towel dried it & applied a small amount of conditioning mousse to activate the curl. I then sat in the sun to dry my hair naturally & the result was soft, shiny, wavy hair that was silky soft to the touch. Because its such a novelty to have manageable hair I then played with my wide GHD irons & smoothed my hair poker straight in literally less than fifteen minutes… Tomorrow I will experiment further & use my smaller irons to create my favorite Farrah Fawcett flicks.
The Bettjemans Permanent Blow Wave makes it all so easy & it really does change your hair…. & your life!!
