Born with frizzy hair, you have always been encouraged by your peers and even your local hair specialist to have keratin straightening treatment for a more convenient and frizz-free hair texture. However, medical research tells you of the damage that the treatment may do to your hair because of the chemicals involved.
Keratin is actually a natural substance in your hair. During keratin treatment, a keratin-based product is applied to relax and smooth your strands with the application of heat. The procedure lasts for about 15-90 minutes, depending on the length of your natural hair, and may be performed on any type of hair, either processed or virgin. Women who are too busy to regularly maintain their hair are also advised to have this treatment done, which may last around four months.Straightening products used in this treatment do contain chemicals, but these are not strong enough to damage either the strands or the hair roots. The speculations mostly come from cancer-risk formaldehyde solutions mostly applied with old treatment procedures. However, most salons nowadays adhere to a standard minimum formaldehyde concentration or even a 100% zero usage of the solution.
This hair smoothing procedure will have you bid farewell to frizzy tresses and you will welcome silky-smooth textured hair without bringing any chemical change or deterioration. This keratin-based method may also be done as added support for processed hair. After the treatment, you just have to wait for three to four days before washing your hair.
