I am Latina and have curly hair. I have been using Keratin treatments for the past 3 years and love the results but agonize over the safety concerns with formaldehyde content. I have been searching for an alternative and this one is a good one. I will NOT GO BACK to the Keratin. The application process is the same and there is a strong odor similar to Keratin but more like vanilla. I applied it myself, but I have very good styling tools - a powerful blowdryer and a flat iron(not a CHI) that gets as high as 450. You need 410 to seal in the product. Next time I will have a friend help me flat iron the back. There were no fumes or coughing nor did my eyes water like with the Keratin. You only have to wait 24 hours instead of 72 before you can wash it. My ONLY complaint about the product is that although I used the formula for chemically treated hair, it totally stripped my hair of the color, I recently colored my hair black and it turned it back to brown and even orangy/red all around the roots. Thankfully my hairdresser squeezed me in for a hair color session. I had to wear a baseball cap for 2 days. So far my hair is soft, shiny and smooth. Don't know how long it will last but I will update my review from time to time to help out others.

I purchased this kit upon recommendation and I think it works great. Your hair will feel filmy after using it, but this is normal. Also, the smell is pretty prominent, however it's not a bad smell. This kit is kind of like a protein treatment, and smooths the hair at the roots to use in lieu of a perm. I am African American and am attempting to discontinue use of chemicals. I have been using this kit to do so, although it does not last me 3 months (moreso around 2 for me). I would recommend it for women using it for this purpose.

MY HAIR: My hair is naturally wavy/semi-spiraly. Enough to look weird when I air dry, not enough to look like I have curly hair. It's akward. After years and years of coloring my hair blonde, my hair was fried. About a year ago I went back to my natural brunette color in an attempt to revitalize my poor strands but I was still rocking a lot of frizz. It would look like I'd stuck my finger in a light socket after a natural air dry or blow dry. I got into the ugly circle of having to flat iron to look presentable (which leads to more damage, naturally).

THE PRODUCT: I was desperate when I heard about keratin treatments. I did a bunch of research and landed on this one. I'll be very honest, I was very hesitant about this treatment. I'd found some reviews where people had complained about noticing greater than usual amounts of hair falling out and thinning. Because I was so scared about that happening to me, I did a test area of about 3"x3". After drying my hair, my hair looked amazing so I went straight to doing the rest of my head. I'm glad I did. My hair now looks amazing. I can let it air dry and could leave the house that way if I really wanted too. Usually, I'll just run a flat iron through it for maybe 5-10 strokes total and it will look great.

PROCESS: My hair is shoulder length. It took about 2.5 hours in total from beginning to end. I took my time to be very thorough in application and straightening my hair with the flat iron. PS: I have a Chi flat iron with no temperature selection so I was worried it wouldn't run as hot as the required 400 degrees. Thankfully, I remembered I'd just received a digital meat thermometer with a metal tip for Christmas so I turned it on and touched the tip to the flat iron. Sure enough, it only runs about 380 degrees F. So, I went to target and picked up a Remington ceramic with digital temperature adjustment for $40. It worked great.

SMELL: The reviews and complaints about the funny smell are accurate. It's not a horrific smell and in fact my husband said it smelled good. I wouldn't say it smells good or bad. It's just a very distinct "proteiny" (I'm making a word here) smell. I think that's why people have said it smells like eggs. For me, it wasn't horrible and something I could live with. The smell only comes out when your hair gets wet.

WARNING: Others have commented that they had noticeable change in their hair color. I'd agree with this. I'd just colored my hair a dark brown prior to this treatment (online reviews and the pamphlet state you are safe to color your hair just before this treatment). After the treatment, my color took on a bronze/red tinge and the ends are noticeably lighter. It doesn't look bad, in fact it looks pretty natural, like it was done by the sun.

Anyways, I am very happy with this product. I was able to get this at a local Cosmo Prof store for about $30. Very well well spent investment. I plan on doing it again in a few months.

The product was so much more than what I expected. Doing my hair myself is what I prefer, but I didn't think the treatment would work out right if I did it myself. The price was right, so I took my chances and my hair turned out salon beautiful! This product smoothes your hair and leaves it extremely soft. With the next washes, you will see the decrease in the time it takes to manage your hair.

I just had the CHI Enviro Smoothing Treatment applied 4 days ago, and so far I really like it. :-) I am very happy because prior to receiving the treatment I wanted a curly perm or permanent wave. I really like this treatment because I can achieve looser curls and waves that have the potential to last for about 4 months. I have natural hair that is mostly type 4b with tightly wound, coarse coils, but all-over I have curls that range from 3c to 4b. Currently with the treatment, I have waves and curls that range from around 2a to 3c. I think that by getting this treatment, it is possible to change one's curl pattern temporarily without having to make as dramatic of a change such as switching to a relaxer or permanent. I believe that with time my curls will tighten back up, but I am excited and happy to have a switch of style temporarily. My hair is soft and easy to manage, and with a twist-out it has even greater definition. I really like this treatment so far and may possibly continue its use in the future if I am able.

I had naturally curly healthy hair before I got this treatment and now I have wavy frizzy hair. Also, now 2 weeks after getting this treatment I now have dandruff. Chi Enviro Treatment has ruined my hair and my scalp. I also have red blisters on my scalp. Please do not get this treatment. Stay away!

This product works well on my hair- no frizz and makes it straight and a lot more manageable. The down side is that at first it smells somewhat like rotten eggs after I wash it using the shampoo, conditioner, and smoothing serum you must use to maintain it. I've learned to use as little of the maintenance products as possible.
