"Straightening, keratin or hair botox?" is the question that plagues many women who want frizz-free hair. However, each of these hair treatments has its own particularity and purpose to achieve the perfect result.
DIY straightening with flat irons is one of the most commonly done to achieve straight hair. This is done at home or at a salon and only lasts for a few days until the hair is washed.
Because this can be done at home or for a nominal fee at a salon, it’s the most common.
Unfortunately, straightening hair on a constant basis tends to weaken the hair and cause it to become thinner. However, there are products available to avoid extensive hair damage and hair loss.
For this reason, it is very important to take care of the hair with a routine that helps keep it healthy and nourished, since both mechanical and chemical damages generate porosity. The damaged cuticle allows moisture to enter; this causes the hair to inflate and lose its shape and shine. To help combat, it is recommended to treat hair with a blend of oils (shea butter, coconut oil, rosehip oil, etc.) to obtain a more docile, straight and flexible hair as well as shine all day long.
The second most sought-after treatment is keratin. Also known as keratin bath or keratin shock, it is an anti-frizz treatment to help with frizz and overall control.
While there are many treatments that hydrate and give the hair shine, none of them transform as much as a keratin treatment, which leaves the hair hydrated and shiny. Keratin doesn't straighten, it disciplines by responding to the hair's elasticity and strength. This treatment takes away the frizz, and will help you to improve your hair's styling. It typically lasts about 4 months and can be repeated as many times as you like.
Keratin is the natural protein found in hair. By doing this treatment it gives back the component that is lost over time and provides fluid movement and natural shine.
Another treatment that is done to achieve frizz-free hair is hair botox, which is a treatment that provides deep hydration and complete nutrition to the hair that lasts approximately 2 to 3 months. It rejuvenates hair, especially those exposed to dyeing, discoloration or exposure to the sun, since its components are vitamins, amino acids, proteins and collagen.
This treatment does not simply straighten, it nourishes and conditions the hair. It restores hair, reconstitutes hair fibers and is an ideal deep hydration treatment. It can be done by anyone, whether they have straight hair or curls.
