Smooth, frizz-free hair not only makes you appear oriented, it can also greatly improve your altitude when shot out of a cannon. Achieve a less wind-resistant style with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a keratin smoothing treatment at Kim Bak Salon (up to a $300 value).
Employing her 23 years of experience and Lasio Brazilian keratin, one-day treatment—which leaves hair ready for washing after only 24 hours—expert stylist Kim Bak helps to impart smoothness to all types of hair. During the treatment, Kim coats tresses in a lightweight, residue-free blend of keratin proteins that infiltrates strands down to the cortex to relax curls and render hair as smooth as a tuxedoed dolphin. The straightening effects can last from four to five months for previously treated hair and from two to three months for first-timers, though the effects of the treatment may be reduced with repeated shampooing. The one-day treatment is gentle enough that the newly sleek-locked can have coloring, highlighting, relaxing, or straightening treatments on the same day, although it's recommended that they wait at least 24 hours before washing hair or sleeping in a puddle.
Some Brazilian Blowout products include the carcinogen formaldehyde, which may cause nosebleeds, headaches, vomiting, and respiratory problems, among other side effects. Learn more about the health risks here.
