What is Keratin Hair Treatment?

Simply put, is the latest trend for straightening and smoothing your curly hair. When professionally applied at a salon, the Keratin treatment is a safe and effective way of giving you soft, silky, straight hair that many curly haired  people dream of having.

So what exactly is in Keratin treatment? Keratin is a natural protein found in the hair, nails and skin of every living creature.Some people have more natural Keratin in their hair than others. Even with that, curly or dry hair can become frizzyand hard to manage. Hence, the Keratin treatments.

Applied in a salon setting, the Keratin product is infused into the hair follicles then sealed with a flat iron. Since it’s not a chemical it doesn’t frizz, dry or damage, as most straightening techniques are notorious for. It also gives your hair an external protective layer that smooths and repairs. Keratin is known to fix everything from kinky roots and straight ends to hat hair and bed head. It lasts for several weeks, and makes life a breeze for people with hard to manage hair!!

There are a host of brand names available, including Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy by Coppola, Global Keratin Complex, the La Brasiliana treatment, Brazilian Keratin Treatment, the Brazilian Blow Out, and Brazilian Hair. Although, home treatment is not advised. Try to find a salon that offers a Keratin treatment, because they’ve done it enough times and have the experience and equipment to give you perfect results.
