Brazilian Keratin Hair Straightener

Brazilian keratin hair treatment

The Brazilian Keratin Treatment with Collagen replenishes the condition of the hair without damage or change of its molecular structure. The treatment can be used on all hair types, such as chemically treated hair (colored, permed, relaxed, straightened, highlighted and bleached).

The treatment is Keratin based; keratin is the primary protein of the hair, skin and nails. This natural substance gives hair the ability to return to its original healthy, shiny, and smooth state.

The amount of time required to style your hair will decrease dramatically. This treatment restores hair resiliency. Humidity, rain, or perspiration will no longer affect the hairstyle.

The application process takes on average 2 hours depending on the length and thickness of the hair. After product is applied, it is infused with a 450-degree flat iron, which traps moisture, hydrates the hair, and creates a glossy finish. Results are visible immediately after the treatment is completed. Clients are amazed to say the least. Hair looks shiny and youthful resembling healthy hair of a young child.

The results last for months; the treatment dissipates gradually as hair is shampooed.

What is the difference between the Relaxers or Japanese Straighteners and the Brazilian Keratin Treatment?

Relaxers or Japanese Straighteners work on breaking and rearranging the internal bonds of the hair. Once these processes are done, the hair is permanently straightened. Of course the new growth will always be curly, but the previously straightened hair will never revert or blend back.

With thermal reconditioning, the promise is always of silky smooth hair, but the reality is that the frizz factor is not only a function of curl/wave, but a function of the health of the cuticle or skin of the hair. In fact one can have very frizzy straight hair if the cuticle layer is damaged or abused.

The Japanese Thermal Straightener will permanently straighten one's hair and substantially reduce frizz, but it can't correct the condition of the cuticle.

Enter the Brazilian Keratin Treatment. The BKT is a semi-permanent treatment that is keratin based. It will rebuild the hair, seal the cuticle and protect it from the elements. It is not meant to be permanent because the bonds are not being broken or re-arranged; therefore if you want to maintain the BKT is will have to be done more often then a Japanese Straightener. The more damaged the hair the better the results. Repeated applications will make the hair silkier and smoother. A minimal amount of blow drying is all that will be needed. The more layered the look the more work that may be required, not to achieve straightness a silky feel but to style. You may have the BKT done if you have previously had your hair relaxed or straightened by a Japanese Straightening system. Your results will be soft, shiny and straight just the same. The time is shorter than that of the Japanese straightening.

This can also be done if you have colored or highlighted hair.
