BRAZILIAN KERATIN TREATMENT-REVOLUTIONIZING THE TREND OF STRAIGHT HAIR
The Brazilian Keratin Treatment now makes it possible to have sleek and stylish straightened hair that lasts up to four months. As the name implies this amazing formula for hair treatment was developed in 2006 in Brazil by Marcia Teixeira and since then product has remained in high demand creating the new craze for straight and stylish hair.
The treatment formula uses Keratin which is a protein that 88% of the natural human hair is actually made up of. In other words, Keratin is no chemical but a natural ingredient. The Brazilian Keratin Treatment works for all types of hair, however, hair that is damaged exhibits best results. The made-from-protein formula penetrates the hair, repairing all parts of where internal damages have occurred. It gives the hair volume and enhances its shine serving as a replenishing hair treatment. Unhealthy, dull, curly and frizzy hair can all be eliminated giving smooth and shiny hair in a matter of only four days.
The Brazilian Keratin Treatment is suitable for children of ages 6 and above, teens and adults. The treatment does not make use of any harmful chemicals and unlike hair irons and straighteners it does not aim at opening or closing of the hair cuticles. It is important to note that the treatment is not permanent, the straightened effect starts fading away by the end of the third month, however, the best part about it is that the hair remains smooth and soft.
Hair stylists and salons usually offer this treatment and the prices depend on the products used. In certain cities, one can be offered a great variety of brands to choose corresponding to which the prices may range from $150-$350. The Brazilian Keratin treatment begins with washing the hair with a shampoo for clarifying purposes. This first wash helps remove all unwanted elements such as the dust and opens up pores for proper penetration of the Keratin formula. Once the air is perfectly clean, it is dried and brushed to get rid of all tangles. When the hair has dried, the stylists apply the Keratin formula on the hair moving from strand to strand. The formula should be so applied that it does not drip off the head or hair.
After an interval of about 20 minutes, every strand of the Keratin-applied hair is straightened using a flat iron in order to lock the treatment perfectly in every strand. Once the ironing is done, the hair becomes smooth, shiny and straight giving one a different yet classy look. For four to five days, one is told to avoid showers, sweating and even tying up the hair for it results in kinks that will remain on the hair. To make the new hair last longer, after the five day time period, one should use a shampoo that has a neutral pH level.
As experts are working upon improving the product, some salons also offer the same treatment reducing the five day period to only 24 hours. All in all it will not be wrong to call the Brazilian Keratin Treatment a long-term blow dry.
