Beautiful Center Parts

I don’t know where this photo comes from, but I love it. Hair to your waist, long flowy dresses and a center part. It’s kind of my dream.

I actually think this is a photo from a cult type “family”, and a few of the wives are clearly pregnant. Which is kind of weird, but I still love it.

Anyway, I am the kind of girl whose hair naturally  wants to have a deep part. I have to force it in the center, and I think at this point it (it meaning my hair) is almost used to it.

The best tip for forcing your hair to part some where it doesn’t want to, is to part it when it is wet. Like sopping wet right out of the shower. If you need to, you can blow dry it into place.

    My hair is just slightly below my collarbone and I have been trying to do this for a while. For some reason though, a middle part does not seem to have the same amazing effect if you dont have long locks.

    OMG I too was like ACK cult pic right away! Ahaha It’s like a rouge Colonel Sanders! HA I LOVE to do a center part-did one just the other day! Problem for me is that even though I have stick straight hair-since I do a side part…even w my flat-iron, it still has slightly more height on one side than the other ha…Grrrr

    I don’t know who else to ask who will give me an honest opinion (this is a hair question). I know already how you don’t like the keratin treatments for yourself.

    I had one done last year and LOVED the results. It was the GK Global Keratin Treatment (not Brazilian Blowout brand, but that’s probably splitting hairs – ooops, no pun intended!). I followed the instructions carefully: sulfate-free shampoo only and didn’t over wash it (I never do, anyway). I used their GK brand (does it matter if you use their own brand? does it really “enhance” the outcome if you use their brand because “it has the same ingredients that are used in the treatment, therefore extending the life of the keratin results?”

    Or, is any sulfate-free shampoo/conditioner fine? Like, Pureology brand?

    Finally, is it an okay thing to do to my hair again?

    My hair was utterly fantastic, afterwards. I loved it. It had shine, swing, was easy to straighten (or let the waves stay, but I never did, I was SO enamored with my newly-straight hair!), etc. I think I got it to really last a good five months. During the summer I reverted to my regular shampoos and basically considered it “over”. But, I’ve found that I can still style it straight, more easily than I could in the past. I had the first treatment last December 1. I’m scheduled for my next one this Wed., Oct. 26.

    Is it damaging to do it again? I have really great hair. I’m not bragging, it’s just true. It’s very wavy and to get it to look fantastic, I do always have to style it in some way or another, using heat. I’m careful; I know how to be careful. But when I had the Keratin, my hair looked like it’s never looked before: like I had DIFFERENT hair altogether, and it was so much FUN. It also had the appearance of a younger person’s hair. I’m 44 and have a youthful demeanor and long hair and I’d say my hair looked like I was 22 (not *me*, but my hair sure did).

    Anyway, I want to know if it will be okay to have it done again. The stylist is top in her field (and I’ll pay for that, it’s not inexpensive) and will do it properly; I have no concerns about that. I really just want to know if another treatment will adversely affect my hair in ANY way. I see my regular stylist monthly; I take very good care of my hair and put a lot of $$ into it so I don’t want to wreck it! It’s long and pretty….but I really would like to do it again.

    Thoughts? Comments? I’d love to know what you think…soon (sorry!) if you can. My appointment is at 10am on Wed. and if I am going to cancel I must do it tomorrow. (They are closed Mondays so I’m okay for today.) I’ve searched online but cannot come up with really the discussion I want: is a second treatment, almost a year later, going to be okay for me? My hair?

    Thanks, if you can!
