Did you know that your hair has proteins and 91% of it constitutes a protective protein called keratin? Over time, keratin which is produced by keratinocytes migrate toward the surface of the skin and slowly die which in turn forms skeletons of cells made of keratin. These layers of dead cells protect your body and work as a protective shield around the hair shaft and help your hair stay elastic. However, the amount of keratin decreases because of age, hairstyling (even if it is just hair brushing), and using chemical products causing the hair to become dry and eventually lose the natural shine.

This is where the keratin hair treatment comes to reverse the condition. The treatment adds a layer of keratin and smooths down the cells that overlap to form your tresses. The layers of cells called hair cuticles absorb the keratin while increasing the shine and strengthening the hair resulting in a glossy look. There are essentially two types of keratin treatments you can opt for.
- Brazilian Blowout: If you want to straighten your hair, choose this treatment as it can straighten out your hair texture. It will last up to 3 months.
- Smoothing treatments: If you don’t want to touch your curly hair, choose this treatment. They don’t change the hair texture but they can defrizz your hair and add shine as well. The good news is its effects can last up to 6 months as they don’t use formaldehyde in the process.
