Keratin is the substance which the hair (as well as the nails) are made of. Frequently abusing hair with styling and heating and chemical applications causes it to lose keratin’s quality.
The hair shaft becomes spliced and uneven, and gains a dull, unmanageable appearance. Fortunately, scientists have devised a way to extract keratin from other sources, like animal wool, and turn it into a mixture that acts like liquid hair.
Applying this product to human hair returns the keratin to the hair shaft’s cortex and fills it up, turning it soft and shiny again. It can even make frizzy or curly hair so much easier to straighten. The additional keratin coating can also make the hair more resistant from elements like the sun, wind, or extreme changes in temperature. Keratin hair treatment is being offered by good salons.
The technology originated from Brazil but local hair stylists have adapted the method. A session will take about two hours, and it costs around two hundred dollars to treat shoulder length hair. But the time and money investment should be worth it because the treatment’s amazing effects can last for three to four months.
People who have tried the keratin treatment for hair at their salons swear that their hair has become shinier and softer after the session. The treatment works best with color treated or damaged hair because the keratin bonds more completely around brittle hair.
They also share that a nice side effect is that their blow-drying time is cut up in half, or becomes purely optional altogether. This is good news for busy women like parents. Those interested in trying out this procedure can visit a reputable salon in their area, or else opt for a do-it-yourself keratin hair treatment that they can apply themselves. It is not too late to reverse the damage that hair has suffered, and regain youth and beauty through stronger, shinier, and softer hair.
The results and the long-term savings will be definitely worth it.
