Permanent Blowdry: Is It Worth It?

I have naturally curly, frizzy hair which gets really hard to manage that's why I choose to have it rebonded straight. I'm not a big fan of flat hair, but let's face it, it is easier to manage than my natural hair. Unfortunately, repeated rebonding has dried out my hair, so I began to look for other options. That's when I read about Permanent Blowdry or Keratin Complex Treatment. Treatments like these have begun to surface in the Philippines, and it began touting itself as THE treatment for damaged hair that other salons won't touch. Supposedly, it wasn't a straightening treatment but will help eliminate frizz, as well as make damaged hair look healthy again. 

Sounds like a dream come true? My further researched indicated that early versions of these treatment contained formaldehyde. Now, there are formaldehyde-free versions being offered in salons, but reviewers online still said that fumes from the treatment stung their eyes. Sometimes, the hairdressers still wore masks. In effect, I'm worried about the possible health effects from this treatment. This, plus the hefty price tag and the short life span (most salons claim up to two months life span only) has made me very skeptical about this treatment. So I'd like to ask you: Have you tried it? Is it worth it?

i dont know about other salons but the one i tried in rockwell does okay naman. the chemical has a bit of a strong smell but doesnt hurt my eyes and the stylist didnt use any sort of mask. i've tried it three times and okay naman.

inquire about it just to be sure :)
