New Keratin Smoothing Treatment Products

As keratin smoothing treatments have evolved, so have consumer need and demand for aftercare products.

Specially Formulated


Many of the keratin treatment aftercare products contain small amounts of the protein complexes that are in the treatment itself, so with each wash-and-condition keratin is re-deposited into the hair, prolonging the smoothing effects. Products in the CHI Enviro Home Care Maintenance System are enriched with the same pearl and silk proteins found in the CHI Enviro Smoothing Treatment. In addition, the CHI products are formulated with a low pH to reduce frizz and add shine.

Brands such as Bio Ionic’s Agave, use sulfate- and sodium chloride-free technology in their aftercare products to extend the results of the treatment. We know that sulfates and salts have the ability to strip color and we are applying this same concept to making sure we’re not stripping the keratin from the hair,” explains Ian Murphy, senior VP of sales and marketing at Bio Ionic.

With so many keratin products on the market, choosing the right one, that provides the right results, without using chemicals is difficult. Natural and Organic hair treatments is the way the hair market is going such as Argil Therapy, which is a natural keratin treatment that uses white clay and amino acids. This keratin hair treatment is washed the same day and provides instant shine and brightness to the hair. I recommend Argil Therapy from Jean De Perle Paris.
I had been wanting to be more natural but was not liking the products I tried. I don't like the idea of formaldehyde or lye stuff. I was told about this new product called Obey and after searching around, I found it online at Anyway, even though I don't usually order stuff online, I decided to try it because it looked great and the price was right. You know, sometimes you just get really surprised in a good way. This stuff really works. It did just what I wanted by just softening my curl, but it reduced the bulk and I can wear it natural or curly or straight and it's so manageable and shiny. My husband absolutely loves it because now I even let him touch my hair! It has been 3 months already and it still looks the same. I'd really like to know if anyone else has tried it and what they think.
I use keratin on my curls but I've been more careful about the ingredients list for formaldehyde. Cocoa Keratin is the most natural I could find and it works really well!
