At-home beauty and hair products have been popular and a booming business for years and for many it makes perfect sense to use them. They are practical, less expensive than salon visits and with the right person applying the technique, you can look like you just came from a salon.
From hair dyes, to acrylic nails to relaxers; women have been using at-home kits on themselves and others for a less expensive way to be gorgeous. Smart? Sure, if you know what you are doing. Dangerous? Sure, if you do not know what you are doing. It truly matters on who is doing it and their level of so-called expertise.
Many naturals are already doing many of their own hair treatments instead of going to pricey salons and I happen to be one of them. Denver is downright ridiculous with their salon prices and now that I am natural I am a tad bit squeamish about going just to anyone to get my hair done.
I trim my own hair, have my sister color it with the Shea Moisture Hair Coloring System and do not apply heat so no worries on that. As a matter of fact, most of the naturals I know are DIYers now that they are natural so as they rock their Twistouts, Fros, crochet braids and straight styles, I know the vast majority of them are either doing it themselves or having a friend or family member do it.
With all that said it comes as no surprise that after the Keratin Smoothing treatments hit the market a few years ago, someone would be working on an at-home version.
