What are the contraindications for Brazilian hair straightening?
There are contraindications to the procedure. Keratisation is not recommended for pregnant and lactating mothers, as well as for children under 13 years of age. These restrictions apply not only to those who carry out the procedure, but also the masters themselves.
Despite the fact that the wording “is not recommended” does not sound too strict and many people neglect these contraindications, manufacturers and we, together with them, strongly recommend refraining from keratising during specified periods. If the desire to carry out the procedure is insurmountable, you can do it with specially designed gentle formulations, for example: Sulution Fiber Protein from Beox Professional. Such reenactors have evthtyysq straightening effect, but they condition hair well and do not have aggressive fumes.
Is it possible to do keratin recovery on hair extensions?
There are no direct contraindications to this score. But when conducting keratinization on extended grains, the master pays attention to two factors:
Materials downturned curls;
The joints between natural and extended curls
Brazilian restoration gives the hair the effect of long-term conditioning. If inaccurately treating the keratin compound with a natural hair extension, it is possible to break the gluing and the attached curls will slide off.
Also, the visual result of the procedure depends on the material of the accrued strands. If strands that have grown natural, the junction between the hair will be invisible and along the entire length they will look well-groomed and healthy. How to react to the procedure synthetic strands difficult to predict. For this reason, many masters refuse to conduct keratinization on hair made from synthetic materials.
How does brazilian hair straightening affect dyed hair?
The procedure can be carried out 2 weeks before staining or 3 days after it.
Dyed and bleached hair responds well to Brazilian restoration. Reconstructors seal the color, remove the frieze, and some even give the effect of toning in colder shades.
The exception is hair dyed with household dyes or henna. Here the result can be unpredictable: from lightening with a few tones to worsening the condition of the hair as a whole. Therefore, on such hair is better to carry out the procedure of Botox or keratinization with a gentle, not straightening composition (Botosmart Expert Silk Collagen, BotoHAIR, Taming System The Best).
Is it possible to do Brazilian hair straightening and restoration at home?
In an era of the availability of any information, it is difficult to keep technology secret. Anyone can read the instructions for the procedure of keratinization with any composition on YouTube or in blogs. In this, in general, there is nothing terrible. But it is necessary to understand that acquaintance with the instructions for applying the keratin composition does not make you an experienced master, able to conduct a full-fledged quality procedure for yourself or someone else.
Knowledge, experience and skill is the valuable baggage that a master has. If keratising were as simple and relaxed as shampooing, then there would be even more positive results and, accordingly, reviews of the Brazilian restoration.
Daily hard work, continuous development of masters give them the opportunity to competently and professionally carry out each stage of the procedure and guarantee the correct result.
Therefore, we strongly do not recommend carrying out the procedure independently, at home.
If you really want to improve the condition of the hair, but the procedure is not resolved by an experienced master, there is a way out - use professional home care, for example, a Cocochoco hair mask with keratin. She has long earned recognition, both among clients and masters, because not only actively nourishes and restores any hair, but also prolongs the effect after the Brazilian restoration procedure. There are also professional home care products that do not need to be washed off: cream or oil (for example, BB Cream from Beox or Esential Oil from Eternity Liss).
What will happen to the hair after keratinization?
Brazilian restoration does not introduce structural changes in the condition of the hair. This is a cosmetic procedure that improves their visual condition for a certain period of time: straightens, softens, adds shine, smoothes and greatly simplifies styling.
It should be understood that after straightening the hair will inevitably lose a little volume, especially if the hair was porous and fluffed.
The result appears immediately, and the duration of the effect (from 1.5 to 6 months) directly depends on:
1. The initial state of the strands;
2. Hair care after the procedure (professional care maintains and significantly prolongs the effect);
3. The number of previous procedures keratinizing (accumulation of keratin in the hair from procedure to procedure, each time extends the result);
4. Living conditions (for example, frequent staining, chlorine and sea salt quickly wash away keratin).
Keratisation can be repeated at least 10 days later. But the optimal, recommended interval between procedures is 2-5 months.
Does the temperature of the procedure damage the hair?
The composition of professional reenactors includes thermoprotective components. They protect hair from exposure to high temperatures. But, the selection of the optimal temperature and work with the iron - a subtle and important point where the experience and attentiveness of the master are needed: the weaker the hair, the more careful it is to work with them.
When can you wash off the keratin composition with the strands?
In this issue, keratin formulations can be divided into 2 types:
Express keratin (the composition can be washed off immediately after the procedure or kept for 40 minutes). For example, Perola, Acai or Cacau from Eternity Liss; KeraPrime or Solution from Beox; Professional; G-Hair by Inoar;
Composition requiring exposure from 48 hours to 72 hours (Cocochoco Original, Pure or Gold, Gkhair, BC Original from ESK Professional.
Which reconstructor is right for your hair, the master will tell you before the procedure.
What is the difference between shampoo deep cleaning (technical shampoo) from sulfate-free?
Deep cleaning shampoo, also known as SHGO, also known as technical shampoo, also known as Deep Clarifying Shampoo, is used according to technology for preparing hair for cosmetic and therapeutic procedures. He has an elevated Ph level, which makes it possible to qualitatively clean the strands from deep contamination, revealing the hair cuticle scales. This is quite an aggressive process and the use of such a tool for daily use is not acceptable.
Sulfate-free shampoo is designed for daily use. As part of the correct sulphate-free shampoo, there are no aggressive components that level the result of the keratization procedure. Today, the mass market is full of offers "organic", "sulfate-free hair care" and so on. But, unfortunately, promising inscriptions and slogans do not always guarantee the appropriate content of the tool. And organic is not always harmless. Only your attentiveness and vigilance can save you. Be sure to check the ingredients of the shampoo that claims to be "sulfate-free." They can be found on the reverse label, in the column “composition”. There should be no trace of such components: sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate, sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate, SLS. Safe shampoos contain vegetable substitutes for these surfactants: lauryl glucoside / lauril glucoside /, laureth sulfosuccinate / lauret sulfosuccinate / or cocoglucoside / cocoglucoside /.
What is better to do: keratin or botox for hair?
If more or less everything has been sorted out with keratin, then “botox for hair” is a difficult procedure to understand. We are all used to the fact that Botox is something that is accepted somewhere to work in order to appear younger. So, in truth come up with some kind of injection for hair?
Not really. Such a name is pure marketing. And how else to call the procedure with the same amazing result? Hair after “botox” look young, healthy, rested and ready to be removed in advertising Pantin. This procedure is not an alternative to keratinization, since the straightening effect is not here. Strands heal, but do not straighten. Suitable for those who only want to heal their curls, without changing the usual styling.
“Botox” is also popular in cases when hair is very weakened by dyeing or chemistry and the keratin recovery procedure can “kill” too weak strands. Then the master prescribes a course of Botox and, after this course, it is possible to carry out keratisation without the fear that high temperatures will damage the hair.
