5 Steps to a Successful Keratin Hair Straightening Treatment
Would you get a tattoo by just anyone without bothering to take a look at their previous work? Then I would hope you would not go to just any stylist for a Keratin Hair Straightening Treatment without knowing what is going on your hair or who is to apply it. If you have a trusted hair stylist, make sure that they are properly trained in the application of your Keratin Hair Straightening Treatment. As far as the product itself, there are many different brands and formulas of Keratin Treatments. Some are Formaldehyde Free or ‘natural’ and others contain different amounts of Formaldehyde. Whatever your preference, there is a Keratin Hair Straightening Treatment for you. Your stylist may even have a suggestion.
How Long and How Much?
Beforehand, I highly suggest you inquire as to how long and how much this process will be. The length and thickness of your hair will ultimately decide the price and time of your Keratin Hair Straightening Treatment.
What is Amino Acid Hair Straightening?
With so many Keratin Straightening Treatments on the market, it becomes hard to know which treatment may be right for you. There has been much skepticism about the safety of keratin hair straightening treatments. The addition of formaldehyde in many of these products has been of much concern due to the carcinogens that are released into the air when the keratin treatment is sealed in with heat from a flat iron.
Since these safety questions have been brought up, other hair straightening treatments have been formulated and brought to the consumer. One of such is an Amino Acid Hair Treatment called Argil Therapy by Jean De Perle Paris. Argil Therapy is an all natural keratin treatment that uses amino acids such as l-cystein, keratin, and white clay elements to restructure and repair the hair naturally without the use of chemicals such as formaldehyde, sodium hydroxide, and thio. While these Amino Acid Treatments may seem very similar to Keratin Hair Straightening Treatments, there are few key differences.
Before any type of keratin hair treatment, find a stylist and/or salon that you are comfortable with. No one wants to be uneasy sitting in a stylists chair. Next, educate yourself and ask the stylist questions you may have about keratin treatments! It’s the best way to ensure you will be receiving exactly what you ask for.
So what is a Brazilian Keratin Treatment?
Here’s the basic 411: By binding, the keratin is able to repair and maintain a healthy head of hair. On the inside of the hair follicle, the smaller keratin molecules penetrate the cortex, properly managing the quality. The larger molecules adhere to the hair cuticle, making a ‘shield’ to protect from UV Rays, smoke, smog and other environmental damage. Usually, this hair treatment will last from 2 to 4 months. Being that keratin hair treatments are not permanent the hair will revert back to its natural form over time, although it will stay soft & shiny. However, the more you continue your treatments, the more the hair improves overall. FYI – This keratin treatment tends to work better on damaged hair and frizzy hair. The more damaged, the better, and the longer the keratin will last in the hair. You should also inquire on the different types of Brazilian Keratin Treatments. Some have formaldehyde while others are formaldehyde free or natural like Jean De Perle’s Argil Therapy – Bio Anti Frizz Elements. Be sure to weigh the pros and cons of each type of product according to your own personal preference.
African American Hair Relaxers Vs Keratin Treatments
Ever since the introduction of Keratin Hair Treatments years ago, a debate has arisen in the African American community. Is one treatment better than the other? In this article I will give you the information you need to make your own decision.
So What Is The Difference?
Traditional Relaxers and Brazilian Keratin Treatments (BKT) both have the same end-game… to provide straight hair. However, they both go about it in a different way. Relaxers for black hair typically use harsh chemicals such as ammonium thioglycolate and sodium hydroxide. This additive can lead to hair breakage and if not properly applied, a relaxer can irritate and/or burn the scalp as well as damaging the hair itself. Keratin Treatments contain a protein called Keratin, which is of a similar compound found in human hair. Keratin is a natural ingredient, but be aware of any hair straightening treatment containing formaldehyde. This chemical is a carcinogen that can irritate the eyes and lungs. Older versions of this product have been tested and it has been found that high levels of formaldehyde are considered unsafe according to OSHA. Look for products that say ‘All Natural’ or ‘Formaldehyde Free’.
In other articles, I’ve explained what you should know before getting any kind of Keratin or Brazilian Keratin Treatment, as well as how the process itself works. This time around I will be going into detail about the after-care of these Keratin Treatments. Regardless of what type of Keratin treatment you use, it is generally […]
