In the contemporary age, people are very conscious of their appearance. And well-groomed hair is one of the most important factors, which add to an individual’s appearance. Most appearance-conscious people change their hair style according to the latest fashion and so try everything starting from hair perming, straightening, curling, to even coloring. And undoubtedly their hair looks stunning. But, over time the side effects also start showing in the form of excessive hair fall, thinning of the hair, receding hair line, and even pre-mature graying of the hair.

Importance Of Keratin

Keratin is a complex protein which constitutes the human hair. Keratin is responsible for the shine, softness, and length of one’s hair. In short, keratin determines the health of your hair. Keratin can be obtained from a variety of sources such as animal hooves, sheep wool, human skin etc. All thanks to the recent researches in the field of cosmetic technology; owing to which we can now directly apply keratin extracts to the hair.

Benefits Of Keratin Hair Treatment

Keratin Hair Treatment was formulated in Brazil which is why it is also alternatively referred to as Brazilian Keratin Hair Treatment. 95% of the human hair consists of keratin which is gradually lost when the hair is exposed to pollution or dust. Application of chemicals in the process of straightening, curling, or coloring the hair gradually reduces the keratin content of the hair. This leads to various hair related problems such as thinning of the hair, abnormal hair loss, pre-mature hair graying etc. With Keratin Hair Treatment, the hair is artificially provided with additional keratin. This additional keratin forms several layers of protective protein on the hair and thus restores the lost health of the hair.

All About Keratin Hair Treatment

Keratin hair treatment lasts for about 3-6 months depending on how you take care of your hair post-treatment. The treatment process is a lot similar to that of hair straightening and will take around 3-5 hours depending upon the length and density of your hair. It is advisable that you don’t use shampoos with sodium laurel sulfate (or for that matter any sodium compound) since sodium extracts keratin from the hair. Also, make sure to go for frequent hair-spa treatments to make your keratin hair treatment last longer.

Many hair stylists prefer Global Keratin Hair Treatment over Brazilian Keratin Hair Treatment because Global keratin products contain an active compound named JUVEXIN which allows the amino acids to stay intact with keratin. This means that the hair gets keratin in its raw form which is considered extremely beneficial for the hair.

Side Effects Of Keratin Hair Treatments

Keratin hair treatment is advised by most hair experts for pampering neglected hair. However, it is important to keep a few things in mind before going to your hair stylist for this treatment. Flat irons are used on the hair to make the keratin molecules bond with the hair. Most hair stylists use hair irons which are heated at 650 degree. Any hair expert will tell you that contact of your hair with temperature beyond 350 degrees can prove fatal for your hair. The other problem is that even though most keratin hair treatment products claim to contain a great proportion of this complex protein in fact there is no trace of keratin in its content. Therefore, it is very important to check the details of the product which your hair stylist is using.

To Sum Up

Keratin hair treatment is extremely beneficial for the hair since it adds extra layers of keratin to the hair and helps the hair restore its natural health in no time at all. Moreover, keratin hair treatments also make the hair grow faster and retaining the natural bounce and volume seems a simple child’s game.
