Default What is keratin? Am I hurting my hair?

So, I recently purchased Keratin Complex Vanilla Bean deep treatment. I did it as a conditioning treatment but when I got on here to see if there were any reviews, Keratin doesn't seem to be a good thing for your hair? I'm trying to strengthen mine so that it will grow (I've been using the Clean Hair care shampoo/conditioner and just bought this)

Any advice helps!

Keratin as an ingredient is fine. As a straightening product it's not very popular around here (mainly because most of us love our curls!). A number of us have started using Renpure Organics Keratin conditioner since Garnier re-formulated Triple Nutrition to include a cone. Because it's popular in straightening treatments it definitely get a bad rap sometimes, but it's a great protein that even some protein sensitive people do well with.

I guess you're not reading my posts! I've been DIY BKTing for 3 years without any appreciable damage. I can only recommend QOD original formula, though. I haven't used any others. I love it! I'll never purposely stop BKTing my hair.

Everyone is afraid of the aldehydes and the high heat required for the process. I have super baby fine hair, and I have no hair breakage. It does make your hair super soft, which can be a problem, again, depending upon your beginning hair texture and your desired results. I'm satisfied with always wearing my hair curly, so it does't matter much that my hair is too soft to hold a curling iron curl.

The results can be permanent, and that's what some people don't like. There is so much misinformation swirling around and, sadly, professional stylists aren't really that much more informed than the average client--sometimes less. Many I know haven't even heard of BKT and those who have don't know enough about it to even be dangerous.

Brazilian hair straightening or keratin hair treatment is a non-chemical straightening technique which will make the hair sleek and soft. There are no side effects and maintenance after the treatment is very easy.



The Cocoa Keratin System is the best I've used (at my salon, of course..I'm actually naturally curly) and it doesn't damage hair at all, it even comes with its own pre and post shampoo + conditioner. Very complete and it lasts for about 5 months
