Afro-Be-Gone... otherwise known as Alicia performing Keratin treatment on my hair...

I know I said that I would post more Spring Break pictures... and I will......... BUT..... I HAVE TO SHOW YOU THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have been debating for a while having Alicia perform some magic on my hair. She has been telling me about this amazing Keratin treatment that she does at her Salon (LaCia's Salon). I have been intreagued that someone who has an over abbundance of curls like myself, can leave the salon with competely stick straight hair, as if a wig was placed on my head.
Let's bring on the magic.......
                                            Here is a picture of "normal" Cassidy hair on a normal day last week....
                          And here are the beginnings of Alicia working on her hair. And it is quite a process (3 1/2 hours), but the outcome blows my mind.......


 Can that even be the same head of hair that walked into the salon??/!!!
 Alicia even gave her some long layers to frame her face and it looks great.


AND NOW YOU MUST PREPARE YOUR MIND..... THE NEXT PICTURE IS NOT FOR THE WEAK MINDED...............
                            LET ME INTRODUCE YOU TO MY FRIEND NAPOLEON DYNAMITE!
                                             BACK VIEW OF FRO.....
                           AND THREE AND A HALF HOURS LATER AND MANY ALICIA TRICKS LATER, THIS IS THE RESULT!!!!  HAVE I MENTIONED THAT SHE HAS MAGICAL QUALITIES?
 And here is the end result as we gathered an hour later at my parents house for Family Home Evening.
                               At the end of the day we are all the same, minus a few fro's....

Your before picture looks so much like my husbands hair right now! He has been growing his thick curly hair for months and is getting so frustrated with the fro that is getting bigger and bigger... Just today he asked me to cut it because it isn't turning out how he hoped (think: Johnny Depp on the cover of Vanity Fair). But I know how much he wants it long, so I told him I wouldn't cut it unless he was 100% sure. THIS treatment would be perfect for him!! Please send me the info for your sister's salon so that I can set this up for him!
