Magic Sleek: Is it worth it?

For most, summer means sun, beach, BBQ, and vacations.  For me, summer means FRIZZ!  I basically spend June – September looking frightful.  I need the absolute perfect weather conditions for me to have a good hair day.  The slightest moisture in the air causes a major problem.  I have tried Keratin, which does amazing things to my hair, but then I can forget about jumping in a pool, swimming in an ocean, or sweating during a workout!  I mean, after spending $100-$200 on a treatment, there is no way I’m going to let it wash out.  

Magic Sleek is a new treatment that works just like Keratin, however it is supposed to last longer, uses less harmful ingredients, and you can enjoy all summer has to offer because it won’t wash out.  I recently decided to give it a try and so far I’ve been super happy with the results.

My hair looks pretty similar to a typical Keratin treatment, but there are some initial differences you will need to be prepared for:

Price: First of all, it is by far more expensive.  A full treatment starts at $259.00.  That was way too much for me to spend so I went a slightly cheaper route and got the Magic Sleek Express.  Using this method they actually skip a few of the steps to speed up the process.

Time: Magic Sleek takes an incredible amount of time. I wasn’t prepared for how much time was needed and panicked a little when after 3 hours we still weren’t finished.  If you plan on using this service, definitely clear your schedule for the day.  I wound up at the salon for 5 hours and mine was just the express.  I can’t even imagine how long the full service takes!

Hidden Costs: One of the benefits of using this method is that you don’t need to buy special sulfate free products because it won’t strip your hair of the Magic Sleek.  However, when I got to the register to pay I was then told I should buy the $50.00 Magic Sleek shampoo because they compliment each other and will help my hair maintain this straight, frizz free look longer.  I decided not to buy the shampoo and risk my luck with my own drug store Pantene brand.  I don’t know if I am making a mistake by not purchasing the shampoo, but I’ll take my chances!
