    I just today happened to watch one of your videos on cutting your own hair, which brought me to your website and saw your video on doing your own keratin hair treatment. I was today going to make an appointment with my hair stylist to cut my hair, but since i saw your video i believe i shall do a little experimenting and try it out myself since im looking into going to beauty school. I love your videos and they seem easy to follow! I am wondering what supplies (scissors, etc) i should buy to cut hair? If i do decide to try the keratin treatment, what brands and supplies should i have, and is there any pros/cons to the treatment or harm that will be done to the hair? Also, i was wondering if you have recommendations on hair products to use for dry Colorado weather? It always seems that my hair drys and breaks right after i get it cut, which doesn’t help when trying to grow out my hair.
    Thank you for your time and your videos!

      Hi Hannah,

      Thanks for such a sweet comment :)) they’re are so many brands and styles of shears to buy it’s really a matter of personal choice. I would recommend buying a professional pair from a beauty supply store, check them out..hold them to see how they fit, how heavy they are.. ect.. Btw, I have a lot of friends in Co. and they love keratin treatments because it restores & tames their dry frizzy hair. Some of the Pro’s are- Frizz free hair, restores keratin to dry damaged hair, very easy to style your hair. Con’s- you have to use certain shampoo, conditioners & styling products. Also, you have to be careful which product you use because of the formaldehyde controversy. I buy my keratin from a distributor. However, I have seen Coppola and GK Hair/Global Keratin on ebay and Amazon. So it is easier to purchase than before, since they ship anywhere. Those are my personal favorites, be sure to follow all the manufacturers directions for application and keep the heat around 400-410* on the flat iron. If it’s to high you will burn your hair. Also, for my dry blonde locks I use Minzani Moisture Fusion Condition. OMG it is AMAZING !!! Seriously if you have dry hair, buy some on line and use it for deep treatments a couple times a week, your hair will thank you :)) After I started using Minsani my hair stopped breaking, that’s how I have been able to grow out my hair so long.. leave it on for 5 minutes in the shower, thats it.. Best Wishes with all your Hairy adventures :))
