What Makes KERAPURE™ the Keratin Hair Straightening Treatment for You?
KERAPURE™ products are a safe alternative to other professional keratin hair straightening treatments, like the Brazilian-style keratin treatments. Other keratin hair straightening treatments are popular because of their dramatic results; after each hair straightening treatment, hair remains smooth and sleek for weeks at a time. However, in addition to hair smoothing results, recent testing and laboratory results for other keratin hair straightening treatments have given beauty aficionados and stylists alike a reason to cry out.
When Brazilian keratin hair straightening treatments initially became popular, they provided styling, straightening and smoothing results never before possible for certain hair types; these hair straightening treatments revolutionized the hair care industry. However, as advanced research and prolonged testing has been conducted on Brazilian keratin hair straightening treatments over the years, results reveal that the majority of these products emit toxic levels of formaldehyde. In most Brazilian keratin hair straightening treatments and products formaldehyde is an active ingredient in straightening the hair. While several keratin hair straightening treatments claim their products are formaldehyde-free, they actually contain formaldehyde-donor ingredients that emit toxic levels of formaldehyde gas when exposed to heat (as in varying stages of any multi-process hair styling or smoothing treatment). As such, many Brazilian keratin hair straightening treatments and products also fail to meet safety and compliance regulations of several international, national and state-level agencies such as the Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA), Center for Disease Control (CDC), Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). These published results can be found here.
How is KERAPURE™ different from other keratin hair straightening treatments and products?
We have spent years researching and developing alternative ingredients and have discovered a unique 4-in-1 formula that combines gold peptides, safe keratin proteins, cross-linked amino acids and exotic oils, which mimics the results of any other hair straightening treatment or product, without any of the associated risks for stylists or clients. In Brazilian keratin hair straightening treatments and products the active hair straightening ingredient is formaldehyde, or a formaldehyde donor.
The KERAPURE™ system uses a non-toxic safe keratin amino acid-based smoothing treatment that penetrates through the hair cuticle to restructure and rebuild individual strands, leaving your hair manageable, flexible, glossy, and smooth. Additionally, KERAPURE™ vapors released by our products and salon keratin hair straightening treatments have been tested by independent laboratories in enclosed environments and actual salon environments to reveal that there are no toxic levels of formaldehyde released at any point throughout the process. Our test results show a less than 0.06 ppm reading of formaldehyde content – more than 8 times below the formaldehyde inhalation action limit (below the lowest readable level).*
Because of our commitment to safe, beautiful hair care, KERAPURE™ is OSHA, FDA, EPA and CDC compliant. These national, international, and state authorities have previously established guidelines and regulations protecting consumers from exposure to harmful chemicals in other Brazilian keratin hair straightening treatments, such as formaldehyde. KERAPURE™ is manufactured by a FDA-registered Over-the-Counter Drug and Medical Device manufacturer, ensuring that we are able to provide products that comply with the strictest safety and exposure guidelines. All KERAPURE™ products either meet or exceed all safety regulations and published exposure limits, even when exposed to heat styling both in the salon and while blowdrying or flat ironing at home.
KERAPURE™ synergizes keratin proteins, cross-links amino acids and gold peptides to penetrate through the hair cuticle, and temporarily breaking the hydrogen and salt bonds. This process uses the cysteine bonds already in the hair to form new covalent unions with our unique polypeptides that help to straighten and smooth hair. KERAPURE™ products create a unique keratin hair straightening treatment that enhances shine, glossiness, manageability, condition, and strength for all hair types.
This safe keratin and amino acid-based smoothing and hair straightening treatment is a safe and scientifically advanced alternative to Brazilian keratin hair straightening treatments that contain dangerous formaldehyde-emitting ingredients at toxic levels.
Who We Are
KERAPURE™ is committed to providing safe, beautiful results for consumers and professionals alike. We believe Safe Keratin treatments, without the harmful, toxic chemicals and the dangerous side effects of exposure to formaldehyde, can revolutionize hair care while protecting stylists and clients. KERAPURE™ is the SAFE way to smooth.

Perfect Hair For Days at a Time
•Reduces Blowout Time
•No Harmful Chemicals
•Leaves Hair Flawless
*The indoor and outdoor air we breathe regularly contains some formaldehyde naturally, and we are all exposed to very low levels of formaldehyde fumes as a result. Passive monitoring devices are unable to detect below 0.06ppm, making it impossible for any product tested using this mechanism to give a 0.00ppm reading.

How Thermal Reconditioning Works
This glycolic acid-derivative, which is traditionally used to perm hair, is relatively mild compared with the chemicals in conventional straighteners, leaving the hair softened and ready to permanently straighten. It can also now be used on African American hair that is virgin hair and has no previous chemical treatment. Then, instead of a traditional blow dry, hair is clamped between small irons and heated as high as 356 degrees (or higher in some cases) Fahrenheit to realign the bonds in stick-straight formation. This is the thermal part of Thermal Reconditioning. Despite it's strong chemicals, the process can be less damaging than regular, strenuous, blow-drying, according to experts.
Keratin is a type of protein high in the amino acid “Cystine.” This special amino acid is what makes hair super tough and extremely elastic. Scientists refer to Keratin as a “Biopolymer,” due to its unique structures and interesting properties. Biopolymers are found throughout nature and give form and structure to naturally occurring substances all around the world; everything from leaves to trees, and turtle shells to goose down.

Stage 1: Straighten the Hair Safely and Efficiently
The curl pattern or characteristic shape of hair is due to the fact that different parts of the hair have different protein levels, making it a virtual patchwork of harder and softer “bridge” areas. Control Zero straightener uses an edible food grade active ingredient to open the disulfide bridge that gives the hair its characteristic shape, allowing it to be styled or straightened. Other chemicals have been used in the past to do this job, ranging from thioglycolates (which smell like cat urine) to formaldehyde (which is banned in many parts of the world because it is environmentally harmful and a known carcinogen). There are no paraben preservatives in Control Zero. We use a highly effective yogurt based enzyme instead.
Stage 2: Repair Any Damage to the Hair
No matter how the straightening is done, when the cuticles of the hair (which encase the long keratin strands) reform after straightening, the infrastructure has been weakened by the broken disulfide. Laboratory tests have shown that after a lye “relaxing” treatment, hair strength is only 20% of what it was before the treatment and after a formaldehyde treatment hair is only 75% of its pre-treatment, strength. The multi-Cynectin keratin protein blend used in Control Zero Masque -- an integral part of the Control Zero system -- has been laboratory proven to restore hair to its pre-treatment strength. In many cases, where hair has been compromised by overtreatment in the past, the hair is left "better than new".
Stage 3: Leave the Hair Better than New!
SMOOTHED vs STRAIGHTENED
SMOOTHING IS NOT HAIR STRAIGHTENING because the underlying structure of the hair remains unchanged. SMOOTHING CHEMISTRY is a process in which positively charged molecules called "cationic surfactants" (they have an extra proton, making them positively charged) are allowed to attach themselves to the negatively charged keratins that form the hair cuticle (a high percentage of those negatively charged proteins are actually sticking out, like the spines on a cactus). Smoothing surfactants have two parts, one that loves water (hydrophilic) and another oily part that hates it (hydrophobic). The water loving part attaches to the hair, while the oily ends "stick out" and that is what gives the hair its smoothness and weight. It lasts only until it is washed out with the detergents (the surfactants in shampoo). The best keratins, like those used in Cynectin, will benefit the hair, but they will not keep it straight without breaking the disulfide bonds first.
Control Zero Masque acidity "protonates" the hair and adds more hydrogen bonds between the keratins in the hair. Other products often use oily surfactants to "glue" frizz and split ends together for a washing or two.
While we know that the curliness or straightness of hair depends on the shape of the hair bulb in the skin, the stability of that shape – the reason it stays curly or straight – is caused by a chemical bond in the protein cysteine, often called the disulfide bridge. These bridges make the hair stable and the geometric shape (the helix) is angled depending upon bonds between the amino acids. These bridges make the hair stable and the curliness or straightness depends upon them.
Hair proteins are stretched when the bridges are broken and can be reshaped because the bonds that hold them together in the shafts of the hair have been broken (also called, reduced), When the breaking process ends after styling, new disulfide bridges are formed between the neighboring cysteine proteins. It is good to wait a day or two before wetting the hair by washing, because bridge building take some time. That is real straightening and not just smoothing.
How to break the bonds is the key question
The reducing agent used in so-called Brazilian keratin treatments is formaldehyde (often mislabeled in the US under a variety of names). It is very effective and doesn’t smell much, but it is an environmental hazard and has been proven to cause cancer. It is forbidden in most of the world in quantities large enough to be effective for bridge breaking. Another popular chemical are the “thios” which are used in traditional permanent waves, but which smell terrible because of the large amount of sulfur they contain and release. Control Zero's reducing agent is so safe that you could eat it safely!
The information that follows has been written with an eye toward those stylists, salon owners and consumers who want to get more facts about Anevolve, formaldehyde-free straightening using Control Zero, the composition of Cynectin brand proteins and updates about the controversy involving the mislabeling of so-called “Brazilian” keratin products.
The safe transition back to beautiful, healthy hair is our goal.
The Anevolve approach to hair care is that each of our products is part of a system designed to make hair beautiful, healthy and manageable. We believe that healthy hair is by definition strong, vibrant, and beautiful, and that this definition applies as much to the hair of seniors as it does to that of children.
The primary keratin structure in hair is called alpha-keratin. More than 25 variations of alpha-keratin are found in human cells. The main protein in the
hair (about 20%) is cysteine.
Long strands of keratin form a thicker coil with the alpha-keratin stands braided together, giving hair its long structure.
The coils are twisted around each other and make long braided filaments (the same way that rope is made).
Hair also gets strength from interactions between the strands. Alpha-keratin polypeptides form strong disulfide bonds or bridges. Control Zero Straightening Gel gently breaks these disulfide bonds. The hair is then styled (straightened or curled) and the bonds slowly reform as the Cynectin Keratin Protein Essence Masque strengthens, beautifies and revitalizes the newly restyled strands.
Cynectin™ is a blend of keratin proteins from a variety of natural sources that are especially rich in cysteine and have the same long fibrous structure that you see in the hair images above. In fact, Cynectin proteins are almost identical to those found in your hair.
BKT treatments that claim to contain keratin often use only what are called “hydrolyzed” keratins, usually treated cow hooves, feathers or other slaughterhouse waste. While the application of wool-based hydrolyzed keratin to hair has proven to be beneficial, production reduces the proteins to a kind of un-natural “confetti”, far less effective than the newly developed long filament strands (intermediate filament proteins) and vegetable proteins which characterize Cynectin. Proteins from a wide variety of natural sources make up Cynectin, and all of them are derived from organic materials. No animal is ever harmed in the production of Cynectin, which is guaranteed to be both the world’s finest multi-protein keratin and CRUELTY FREE.
