KERATIN SERVICES AND RELAXERS
WHAT ARE KERATIN SERVICES ?
in plain English keratin treatments are polymers or plastics that get infused into the hair by a heat source (a hair iron).
It coats the hair making it look smooth, shiny and healthier.
However, this is a superficial cosmetic fix.
Manufactures uses diferent types of preservatives and straigthing agents to get that final result.
Previously formaldelhyde was the first used to make the hair straight and flat as well maintaining a longer shelf life.
Currently aldehydes like acetic acid (vinegar), glycol (from fruits acids) ,amino acids ,cysteine are also used .
the final result will vary depend of the type of hair,time of processing,iron temperature,iron passes.
strand test is require to evaluate and decide what will be the protocol to follow and if color will fade or lift.
today's keratins has been enriched with more botanicals,vitamins,extracts,amino acids .
the cysteine - glycol keratins the hair is clean the same day ,you should wait 24 hours to wash again.
if you wait longer be sure the hair is tight or mark. if you do not wash after the second day some clients may have an strong sulfur smell when hair its wet
keragreen keratine should not be wash for 3 days ,no clips,pony tails, no sweat please
in my opinion as a conventional stylist this one of the best and latest products in the cosmetology industry that works for consumer purposes-no freezzy hair, but as a holistic stylist :IT IS NOT CHEMICAL FREE .
Also what i hear is many of the antifreez (shampoo,conditioners,oils,serums,gels,mouse,leave in,name it ) has this polymers and when this is heat it at 450 degree they release formaldlehyde when pressing with the iron; that its call ppm or part per million on the air.
is that bad ? maybe bad as when you consume a dark cola drink or any other food and your liver metabolize it in formaldelhyde or when some one is sensitivity to wheat or chamomile.
make a priority , cosmetic beauty or health,i believe products will become better but chemistry is chemistry...
sadly nothing is completed toxic free ,the more i investigued the more confuse it gets by the end put it in a balance and you decide what is best for you.
DO NOT BELIEVE ON THE FRONT LABEL,LEARN TO READ THE INGREDIENTS IN THE BACK.
