Installation and Review of Phantom Glass iPAD Screen Protector

Phantom Glass is my first choice when it comes to getting a screen protector for my gadgets specially phone and iPad. They are strongest glass screen protector available in the market, and prevents any chipping or scratching during use (exclusively, very important if your little ones uses them). I use the same brand for my HTC One M8 Mobile phone for more than 6 months and it is still going strong. So, I am back with another post for easy installation of Phantom Glass iPad screen protector. Check my YouTube or see below video for the complete process.

Read my review & installation for Phantom Glass HTC One M8 Mobile phone.

I had few questions in my mind before reviewing the value of this product:

  1. Does the whole installation process is simple plus frustration-free?
  2. Does screen changes the look or it looks exactly same.
  3. Does the Phantom Glass hides the existing scratches?
  4. How is the user experience with Phantom Glass?

Here are my answers to my doubts –

  1. Very simple and easy process to install the screen. Check my video above to see how easily I did the complete process. And if, I can do it then I am sure anyone can do it .
  2. Corning Gorilla Glass ensures to protect your device from impacts and scratches.100% clarity, with zero image distortion.
  3. It is treated with a special oleo phobic nano-coating to ensure that fingerprints wipe off with ease. They help hiding the previous made scratches on the device.
  4. You can hardly feel the difference before and after installing the screen but now it is tempered proof.
  5. Additionally, Phantom Glass fits in all the cases. They have screen protector for every model. It is reusable and silicone nano-adhesion layer ensures easy installation and zero residue.

I am very happy with my Phantom Glass screen protector and hope to stick with it till it breaks off or if I find a better product. Incase you have any issues with your existing screen protector, I would suggest to try Phantom Glass and you will never repent your purchase.

Keratin Hair (Straightening) Treatment : What to Expect

Keratin Hair Treatment (Brazilian Keratin TreatmentBrazilian BlowoutKeratin Cure or Keratin Straightening) is a method of temporarily straightening hair by sealing a liquid keratin and a preservative solution into the hair with a hair iron. Well, let me make it very clear that it is in no way a hair straightening treatment. It is basically a good but repetitive treatment to get rid of frizzy or too curly hair. It definitely reduces 80% of your blow dry time but still if you want absolutely straight hair then you have to touch the hair iron rod.

Read this post to find some really cute hair accessories for little beauties in your life.

Keratin ResultMy hairs were very wavy at the bottom and it had lots of volume which I personally didn’t like so much (as it was not curly enough to be styled). I either have to use iron rod or blow dry in my hair to get less frizzy and wave free hair. This keratin treatment has surely saved my hours wasted in blow dry and iron rod.

Keratin Hair TreatmentNow my hair is less wavy and much relaxed of its curls but still it will require numerous number of treatment before it will actually start looking straight. My first treatment has encouraged me to do it more often like in every 3 month’s time. Though I will prefer doing at home with someone’s help (probably my husband) saving on the cost. Over-the-counter or at-home keratin treatments are less expensive than salon versions. All you need to take care of is no-formaldehyde based Keratin product plus use of keratin-infused shampoos, conditioners and daily use styling products to extend its effect.

Here’s the step for doing by yourself –

  1. Choosing the right brand of keratin treatment is very important. Select product with no or very less formaldehyde.
  2. Use no-sulphate shampoo and wash your hair couple of times. Do not apply conditioner.
  3. Towel dry depending on which keratin treatments you are using.
  4. Apply the treatment throughout with a brush on complete hairs, comb the hair and if product remains on the comb then squeeze the excess out.
  5. Keep in hair for around 20-30 min and then completely dry it with Blow dry.
  6. Now rinse off once very lightly without shampoo.
  7. Now time to flatiron your hair at 450 degrees 4-5 times on each strand.
  8. Don’t wash your hair for at least 24-48hrs. Then wash hair with sulphate free shampoo.
  9. Don’t use any clip or make pony as they meant to stay straight. Stay away from dry shampoo for some time.
  10. Here you go, your hair is more straight and frizz free.
