This morning changed my life. Or, at least it changed my life for the next three months. As I've mentioned before on this blog, my unruly hair is a source of contention for me. When I don't have time to get a professional blowout, I usually find myself just throwing it back in a ponytail and calling it a day, which isn't always the most attractive look, especially on days when the humidity is high and I frizz up like a Fraggle Rock character. But today, all that changed, thanks to my visit to Carlos Lobo Salon here in New York City, where I received a Keratherapy Intense Renewal treatment. When I arrived at the salon, Patricia Spuri, the owner, personally greeted me. After learning I had never gotten any sort of straightening or smoothing treatment before, she sat down with me and explained how Keratherapy differs from other systems, including the fact that it contains a combination of certified organic ingredients with silk amino acids, as well as soy proteins and antioxidants to ensure the health of my hair. For the next two hours I sat in the chair and chatted with my lovely and talented stylist, Cynara (she's the pretty one on the left), while she worked her magic. I was so engrossed in our conversation that I didn't realize she had finished until I looked up and saw a girl with fabulously straight hair staring back at me in the mirror. I am beyond pleased with the results, and it couldn't have come at a better time, with the hot, humid days of summer quickly approaching. So, thank you, Keratherapy and Carlos Lobo Salon for straightening this spa editor out!
