Rusk Deepshine Smooth Keratin Care

Rusk Deepshine Smooth Keratin Care is set of shampoo, conditioner and deep conditioner that contain Keratin. It's not a relaxer or process; just a keratin treatment. It's sodium free as well.

Finally got this in the mail (haven't seen it for sale at drug stores yet) and I liked it, was a bit nervous to try out a Keratin product; I had to go over all of my styling products to make sure none of them had any sodium products that would interact with the Keratin.

Left my hair feeling super strong and very smooth to the touch, with just the tiniest fall. I don't blow dry so I can't vouch for it's straightening powers, but it does make my hair feel thicker, glossier and stronger. Loving it so far!

Now I'm feeling more like I want to try an actual Coppolla type treatment with the full blow dry, after having a tiny taste of some keratin I want more, more more!
On the second use the Rusk Deep Therapy keratin product was very drying; turns out the shampoo has Sodium Laureth Sulfate. Keratin products should not be used with Sodium Laurel Sulfate or Sodium Laureth Sulfate.

The conditioner is great, but the matching shampoo was not for me. I am going to use WEN, and then use the Deep Shine Keratin Deep Condi every few weeks to strengthen.
I just started to use the deep conditioner and really like it so far. I got it at Ulta and you can use the coupon on it! I have not tried the other products, so I am glad you gave me the heads up on the shampoo. I am still trying to find the best shampoo out there for keratin - not really thrilled with anything and keep rotating on that one.

In my last purchase from Curlymart I received a sample of Marcia Teixeira Keratin Shampoo (color treated) and Conditioner. Has anyone used this product? Is there a benefit to using keratin in shampoos/conditioners for naturally curly hair?

I just use the Marcia Texteira Keratin conditioner and it does wonders for my 3c hair. Smooths the frizz and elongates the curl. I use Giovanni smooth as silk conditioner after a quarter size amount of the keratin condish.

I am finally getting my own natural hair to not just grow but to have soft and glossy curls. I am 4...f? Super super kinky curly but the Extenzz, Keratin and Wen are my Justice League of frizz fighters.

I'm using the Wen to cleanse and following with Rusks Deep Shine Keratin conditioner (I don't recommend the Rusk Deep Shine Keratin shampoo-too drying; has Sodium L. in it).
Wen makes my hair soft and Rusk Keratin condi leaves my hair stronger.

My first leave in is the Extenzz from Curly Hair Solutions, which uses lecethin to fight shrinkage; this has been a total and complete hair saver. It leaves hair feeling glossy, loose and strong. A little goes a long way.

My other leave ins are Body Shop Body Butter (cocoa, shea or almond) and a little Komaza "Jojoba Hemp Balm" to add another touch of strength, thanks to the hemp balm.

The result is stronger and healthier hair that is growing like crazy.
I haven't tried the Marcia Tex. keratin shampoo. I think Keratin works best in conditioners, not shampoos.

You need to use a gentle cleanser (that does not contain sodium laurel sulfate or sodium laureth sulfate). Apply the keratin conditioner to clean freshly washed hair (I use Wen which is a a gentle cleanser with no sulfates or sodium) The keratin conditioner creates a strong protective layer on the hair that nourishes and glosses each strand.

Here is a great article about all the DIY keratin products that you can now buy for at home use:

You are supposed to use a shampoo that does not contain sodium when you are using a keratin product.

The Coppola keratin website has some great videos that show how the keratin conditioner is smoothed onto the hair to coat each strand. The keratin is absorbed into the hair and makes hair stronger and glossier.
