Has anyone had a Brazilian Keratin Treatment

Has anyone ever tried something like this? It sounds pretty interesting.
Brazilian Keratin Treatment / BKT


Brazilian Keratin Treatment (also known as "BKT") is a new way to make your hair straight and frizz free.
Unlike the Japanese straightening, the Brazilian Keratin treatment is not permanent and is better used on damaged, porous hair.
You can highlight the same day you do the BKT.
The BKT will wash out in 2 to 3 months, depending on how porous your hair was before the treatment. The more damaged the hair, the more dramatic the results, and the longer it will last.
Basically this product has Keratin in it and the Keratin will crystallize and coat the hair shaft, sealing in shine and keeping out moisture/frizz. It makes damaged hair look healthy again.
After the process, you cannot was for 4 days. Also, you should not use any product (particularly shampoo) with sodium Chloride, as that will eat through the coating. You should wear a mask and close your eyes during the blowdry with the paddle brush after the product has been applied. The formula contains about 2% formaldehyde (to hold the keratin in the hair) and therefore while it is being processed with heat it will smell strong and also sometimes the first day or two after the treatment.

Nope, I'm kinda fearful of trying anything or than a relaxer. I am interested in others reviews from those who have tried it.

There are too many don'ts for me to feel comfortable using this.

I think I would rather go with Thermasmooth. It sounds like they both do the same thing.

These don'ts are only for the first 4 days while your hair is still going through the process.

They are probably to avoid any dents in your hair.

Exactly. It was the same thing when I was having the Bio Ionic Thermal Straightner done to my hair. LongLocksBoca had this done to her hair back in April of this year.
