DAVID KAPEL HAIR REVIEW
1) I bought a voucher off of groupon for a choice of a brazilian keratin treatment, spanish straightening treatment, korean kee mee straightening treatment or japanese yuko straightening treatment.
2) I had long hair mid back length, coloured and which i had been straightening using the brazilian keratin and also straightening irons occasionally. Ends needed cutting but overall in pretty good condition considering it was coloured and straightened often.
3) I left the salon with COMPLETELY DAMAGED, OVERPROCESSED hair!!!! I ended up having to cut off at least 5 to 6 inches or more when i had planned on maintaing length and getting just 1 or 2 inches off that day! Didnt get it cut at this salon though I ran out when I saw the damage and went to a more trustwrothy salon.(which wont be named because im focusing on david kapel right now!)
4) I had gone in with hair that was wavy and my main concern was to cut down styling time and have straighter roots. I had planned to go for the japanese treatment on just my roots as I dont really like all my hair being straight just the roots but the hairdresser advised the spanish treatment and said it could be put through all my hair and wouldnt cause damage despite my hair being coloured while the japanese would. (I SHOULD NEVER HAVE TRUSTED HER!) not only did it damage my ends, it damaged my roots my hair is damaged so severely now, and after she washed out the treatment it was faling out in chunks, it was all crinkled up from being fried, and it felt spongy and sticky and was obviously overprocessed. I mentioned this to the woman and she said just 2 inches needed cutting off and it would be fine. (lies!) She denied that it was damaged and wouldnt listen to me. She kept viciously combing it and I just kept watching chunks of hair breaking off and falling to the floor. Im not sure if shes ignorant and didnt want to admit her mistake, or if she really knows that little about hair that she couldnt see it was overprocessed and damaged.
Please please please STAY AWAY FROM THIS SALON! I realise now it wasnt worth trying to save money by getting a discounted treatment, in the end I spent more buying deep conditioners and products in attempts to salvage what was left of my hair than i would have if I'd just gone to a good salon and gotten a good brazilian keratin treatment done. Id even rather have frizzy hair right now than what I've got, at least it would be long and healthy!!! I hope this helps at least one person from making the same mistake as me and if you have any more questions or want to see photos of the damage after and what my hair looked like before just message me(if thats possible on here?)
Also, the treatment has made it take TWICE AS LONG TO STYLE MY HAIR. and i still have to straighten it! :( It was the worst mistake I made in my life.
