The Benefits of Keratin Hair Treatment

In the battle against frizzy hair Keratin hair products have gained a lot of popularity the last few months. The healing capabilities of these are loved by many, but what exactly is it that makes Keratin oils so great that many women swear by them?

The Keratin product ingredients are really straightforward. Keratin, a property natural to hair is mixed with formaldehyde and applied to your hair, usually in the form of oil in every strand of your hair. The mixture is then heated in your hair with the help of a flat iron.

After that you need to wait 72 hours before you can get your hair wet, put it in a ponytail or behind your ears. After this period you need to use a special sulfate free shampoo. Because treatments need to take place in multiple sessions many women choose to undergo a keratin treatment in a beauty salon. Because formaldehyde is a carcinogen that can cause skin irritation it's also best to let a professional apply the hair treatment if you're not experienced in doing it.

After a few months of treatments you'll notice that your hair will be silky smooth and frizz-free. It will become easier to manage and overall healthier.

There are enough at-home kits nowadays where you can apply your own Keratin treatment. For the best ones check out this website:

I'm particularly fond of Cocoa Keratin System, it's a Brazilian keratin treatment that comes with the pre-treatment shampoo, smoothing treatment and daily shampoo and conditioner. I like it because the treatment lasts up to 5 months and its very safe on my hair, giving it nutrients, moisture and smoothing it down. The protein and argan oil help immensely and strengthen my hair while making it super shiny. I recommend it :)
