Keratin hair treatments have become one of the more popular smoothing and straightening options available. Although there's lots of talk about Keratin, not a lot of people know much about it. To answer your questions, we've outlined a few facts about Keratin and how it can be used to transform your hair.
What is Keratin?
Keratin is a type of protein usually found in hair, skin, nails and teeth. It is a fibrous structural protein made up of living cells and can be hard (nails) or soft (skin). In usually forms a waterproof, strong and protective covering for more delicate parts of the body.
How do Keratin Treatments change your hair?
Keratin treatments are designed to smooth and defrizz by boosting the existing Keratin proteins in your hair. These proteins infuse and coat the hair giving it a smooth and shiny finish. After application, a hot straightener or blow dryer is used to seal in the treatment ensuring the smooth finish lasts longer. The Keratin in your treatment will reform the protective layer around your hair to protect from further day-to-day damage.
How do the new All Natural Keratin Treatments stand out from the rest?
The new range of Keratin natural care treatments contains 0% Formaldehyde They are designed to smoothen and reduce the volume of hair by combining two of Brazil's natural assets, the Açai and Guarana fruits along with the newest technology of amino acids infusion. Treating your hair with Keratin natural care treatments will give you the hair you've always wanted that looks and feels great.
Hair is basically composed of the protein alpha-keratin which corresponds to 80 to 90% of the mass weight of hair. The major amino acid present in the keratin is cysteine (36% of the composition of hair), responsible for cysteine links. The cysteine can interact with another cysteine in the same chain and form a covalent bond. These bonds are responsible for the "waves" that appear on our hair. The new keratin hair treatment systems available promote curl relaxation and repairs damage caused by chemical processes in a single step. No more chemicals means beautiful natural hair!
Having a Keratin Treatment doesn't take all day. Your hair can be transformed in less than 2 hours and the results can last from 8-12 weeks (depending on your hair type and how well you look after it). You can wash and restyle your hair within 2 days and most Keratin hair care treatments are compatible with all hair types: chemically treated, relaxed, straightened and virgin.
