If you have been thinking about making your life a little bit more comfortable, a little bit easier – you should be thinking about keratin treatment.
It not only makes a difference in the way your hair looks and feels it saves time on getting ready in the morning. And the most important thing of all – it will make you stop worrying that your hair will frizz and become unruly with every drop of rain.
There are over 150 different products on the market that include the words keratin treatment. Those treatments which are done at the salon have amazing results. The at-home keratin treatments or the liquid keratin treatments differ in affectivity and the amount of formaldehyde they contain.
Aha! The word – formaldehyde.
Formaldehyde is a carcinogenic – may cause cancer when it is inhaled or when it comes in contact with the skin for a long period of time. The amount of formaldehyde in each treatment is different, and if done following the instructions; doing it in a well-ventilated room, without flipping your head over when you blow dry it, it shouldn’t pose any health risks. Most of what was written and said lately about products that contain formaldehyde that pose risks had to do with salon workers who are exposed to the substance on a daily basis for many hours a day. Reputable salons make sure that the area is well ventilated.
However, if you are still uncomfortable with the idea of using such a notorious substance in your home, there are formaldehyde free keratin treatment kits that produce very similar results.
Why go through all that you ask? Because it works. And it works very well. From what you read and see, from pictures of keratin treatment before and after , there is no doubt. It leaves the hair smooth and silky, no frizz or stray hairs. Wavy and curly hair become manageable and people swear that the hair stays that way even when it gets wet by sudden rain or humid environment.
The treatment lasts for weeks, again, depending on the product. After every shampoo the hair is easily managed and set in a much shorter time.
