Brazilian Keratin Treatment
The Brazilian Keratin Treatment is a semi-permanent
extra-strength conditioner that uses keratin (a protein found in hair, skin,
and nails) to seal the hairís cuticle for shiny, silky, frizz-free results.
The treatment is safe for all hair types (including color-treated
and chemically relaxed) and washes out in about three months.
It may vary depending on the product, but mostly you begin by washing
your hair with a special shampoo that removes any residual from previous products
such as conditioners and also the residuals of pollution, wind and smoke.
Then, either with your hair wet or a bit blow dried, the keratin solution is applied
directly with a brush, just as if you were coloring your hair.
It's almost the same process, separating your hair mainly in four parts.
Once the keratin has been applied, you seal it with a protective mask
formed by additional amino acids (some products have it already incorporated)
and blow dry it or use a flat iron. You have to wait 4 days for the treatment
to take full effect. That also means no brushing, no sweating,
not getting it wet, no coloring, no hair-spray, gel or mousse.
Absolutely nothing must happen to your hair during that time.
After the treatment, it is highly recommended that you wash you hair
with shampoos that have neutral PH and that contain a minimal amount
of sodium chloride or the effect won't last much long.
Most keratin treatments last up to 3 or 4 months.
The advantage that the Brazilian Keratin Treatment has over the Japanese
technique is that the process is 100% done with natural products and elements,
though is not permanent. And also it can done in ANY type of hair, be it curly,
dry, oily, colored, virgin, relaxed, you name it.
There's not any impediment to do it. And also there's not much to lose.
If you want to enhance even more your silky, fabulous new look,
you can use a flat iron daily or once a week, but it can't be just any iron.
The best ones in the market are made of Tourmaline Ceramic (from 200
to more than 400 ions) that help seal the already treated cuticle of your hair.
