Sam Brocato’s Supersilk Treatment Has Changed My Life

I have curly hair that’s extremely frizzy. In order to combat the frizz, I have to layer on the hair products as well as blow-dry and flat iron. The whole process takes me over an hour and that doesn’t include a shower, makeup application, and of course, getting dressed.

To shorten my morning routine, I started getting keratin treatments (also known as Brazilian Blowouts). They cut my morning routine in half! But at what cost?

The first time I received a Brazilian Blowout, my eyes and scalp burned so badly during the application that my makeup ran down my face. But after six months of smooth, straight hair, I forgot how awful the experience really was. Then I got another one.

The second time I received the Brazilian Blowout, it wasn’t as bad. Most likely because the company was forced to lower their formaldehyde levels. It wasn’t until later that night that I felt sick to the point it was difficult to breath. I actually went to the doctor due to my symptoms, and was told that due to the treatment I had formaldehyde poisoning! The treatment didn’t work either — I still had frizzy hair.

After that experience, I vowed to never again get another smoothing treatment. It’s not worth exposing yourself, your stylist and everyone you live with to that deadly chemical.

Then, at a recent event, I found the perfect replacement.

Supersilk

I was introduced to Sam Brocato’s new Supersilk Plus treatment, and found that it was 100%  formaldehyde free. I told them about my past keratin woes and they offered to have me test out his new treatment, free of cost.

I agreed, and yes, it changed my life — for the better!

I sat down with Sam Brocato himself for the application process, which was very similar to my past keratin treatments: two shampoos, blow dry, product application, 45-minute processing time, blow dry and flat iron. About 3-hours in total.

The whole process went as easily as a standard highlight treatment; my eyes didn’t water, my scalp didn’t burn and I breathed easily.

Now the real test: would it work? Sam told me I could wash my hair right away if I wanted to, but out of habit, I decided to wait for three days.

Results

It’s been over a month and my hair is still smooth and straight! I no longer need to use my flat iron in the morning, and my blow dry can be rushed; I don’t need to separate my hair into sections and use a round brush.

Below is a photo of my hair immediately before the treatment. The texture is the result of flat ironing the day before and then sleeping on it.
