Organix Brazilian Keratin Therapy

Like Tree4Likes

I just did the treatment today and i must say it is a very tidious process. I washed with the shampoo that was provided, followed the steps. I am 3c and 4A and the worst part for me was detangling and blow drying simply because you can't use any other product but the Keratin treatment. so there is no slip and the shampoo strips your hair clean. Hope this helps I will update you all when i wash my hair in 48 hours
Just to throw my knowledge into the pool, I sent an email to the company recently asking about the safety of the ingredients (chemistry was not my subject in school). While the response I got promises that there's no hydes in the product, there's just something a little off about it.

My query: I'm strongly considering buying your BKT line and the 30-day smoothing treatment. I would like to know more about the how the active ingredient in the 30-day treatment, oxoacedamide carbocysteine, works to straighten hair. What are the general properties of the chemical, and will it turn into a harmful substance on contact with heat? I appreciate your time in responding to my question.

The response: Thank you so much for contacting us! Basically it infuses unruly hair with keratin proteins that it is missing. You are essentially coating the hair with a liquid keratin protein that you seal in with the use of a 450 degree flat iron. You can also think of it as a cast if you will… a cast that goes over each individual stand of hair. Once it sets (from the heat of a flat iron) it holds the strand perfectly straight. This product is formaldehyde free and does not produce formaldehyde when heated. Here is a list of the ingredients.

DI Water (Aqua), Propylene Glycol, Hydrolyzed Keratin Protein, Amodimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Phenyl Trimethicone, Propylheptyl Caprylate, Isopropyl Myristate, Cetrimonium Chloride, Sorbitan Oleate, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa Butter), Cocoa Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Xantham Gum, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Cetyl Alcohol, Ethandial, Argania Spinosa (Argan Nut) Oil, Parfum, Methylchloroisothiazolinone and Methylisothiazolinone, Methyl-4 Hydroxybenzoate

The response, I felt, was misleading. It says that the product doesn't produce formaldehyde, but it does not mention anything about the safety of the other ingredients. Also, keratin is referred to throughout, despite the fact that cysteine (I know, one of the amino acids in keratin) is the protein ingredient doing the work. Also, the list of ingredients given by the company doesn't match the ingredient list on web listings.

Here is the ingredient list from Amazon:
Aqua (Water) (DI water), Oxoacetamide, Carbocysteine, Oxoacetamide Amino Acids, Polyquaternium 67, Behentrimonium Chloride, PEG 90, Shea Butter, Amidopropyltrimonium Chloride, Shea Butter (Butyrospermum Parkii) Cetyl Esters, Isopropyl Palmitate, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethiconol, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Fragrance, Silanetriol, Panthenol

The first couple of ingredients are nothing alike. Maybe I'm missing something. I really want to try out this product, but I just want to make sure that it's safe first.

I've been lurking these forums for over a year and now i have the courage to comment.
I saw this product on some news show yesterday morning and it was on my mind all day at work. When i got off work i came home and read y'all's reviews and i ran out and bought it. I put it on last night, and am in the process of waiting 48 hours...ugh!
I would love to see or hear about any of your results after your 48 hour wait. Any updates ladies?

I only waited 24 hours to see the results. i washed the BKT out of my hair using their shampoo and conditioner and my hair still have it's curls but they were softer and they had at least 50% less frizz, and my hair dryed faster. But tonight i plan to put the rest of the treatment in my hair and leave it the full 48 hours.

PrettyPorcupine, i love your review!

A-Felice, i watched your video on you tube and i saw the one where your hair got wet the next day, i'd like to know how the treatment worked out after that happened. btw, i thought your hair looked kinda cute after it got wet.
sorry about the long post, thanks ladies!

I tried it. I was scared at first cause I always thought of my hair as being protein sensitive. However - now I can use protein treatments and have hair soooo much softer and shinier than ever! It feels like hair.

The treatment process itself wasn't bad. I wasn't bothered by the smell - really didn't smell much. I was able to go to work with it in without anyone knowing. I waited 72 hrs before washing out (just worked out that way).

My hair was 3a and can be if I dry it that way. But airdrying it's 2b. I can run an iron through it in 20min vs the 1.5 hrs it took to flatten it before.

I really like it.
After some hemming and hawing, the week-long forecast of rain and drizzle got me motivated to do the treatment tonight.

I'm surprised. I'm sitting here with the straightest, sleekest hair I've ever had in my life. I went into this with zero expectations.

My hair is 3a/3b, brunette and highlighted. I didn't experience any color lifting or orangey cast that some reviewers on Amazon and other sites experienced. My highlights are the same warm honey color that they were before.

I didn't have any weird smells, burning or irritation or surplus smoke. There was minimal steaming/smoking, of about the same amount that I get when I blow out my hair normally. I did the treatment standing right next to an open window, and during the blow-out part, I was careful not to inhale the steam/smoke and took all of my breaths through the window. A little extreme, but it was worth it not to have any complications. The smell, overall, was pleasant, and still is.

I probably used only half of the bottle. I was careful not to use too much when coating my hair, and I started coating about 1/2 - 1" down from the scalp so I'd have plenty of volume.

After flat ironing, my hair definitely has that waxy, coated feeling, but it looks much better than I anticipated. I won't have any problems going to work tomorrow with this hair. But then I've never had shiny hair, so it doesn't look different than it usually does. There's still a sheen if you look closely. The only annoying thing I've experienced with this product are some short, fine hairs that are standing straight up on my head and won't lie flat.

I can't wait to wash it out! I'm pretty over this stick straight look, and I'm hoping for 2b/2c curls and less frizz!

I forgot to report back. I love this stuff. I just now started to notice my frizz coming back. I've had great hair, minimal frizz which is my problem, and it's so easy to blow out. I used the whole system and the flat iron spray was the only thing I didn't like. It left me greasy.

I plan on purchasing and applying this product on my leavout (4a) of my weave. Since I won't be using that much of the product, will I be able to store the product?

I'm not sure what kind of shelf life it has. I just purchased another bottle to save and use in who knows!
This is a terrible product it turned my awesome darker blond hair to PUMPKIN ORANGE!!!!! Not to mention my hair feels and smells bad... I would not recommend this to anyone. I have had a real keratin treatment done in December and that was like a life changing thing, Now i know better, you get what you pay for STAY AWAY FROM THIS!!!
I can't imagine what product your using because I use this

And the ingredients on the back are listed as

Yes you might not want to take the risk IF you have very light, blonde hair.

My hair is very dark brown/black and while I didn't notice it immediately, after a while I did see it was a bit browner, and very obviously brown in the sunlight. But I actually liked that effect.

It wasn't dramatic enough that people would stop and ask about it or anything though.
Hair type: 2C-3A, very dry, extremely low porosity, med elasticity, insanely thick kinky-wavy.
HGs: Trader Joe's Nourish spa conditioner, Epsom salt rinse, Joico K-pak conditioner
It might be the combination of the chloride ingredient and the sodium acting like a LYE (semi-perm)

But I could be wrong

I've had the Organix BKT Smoothing Treatment in for a week, and I'm much more impressed than I anticipated. My hair is virtually frizz-free on even the most humid of days and it loosened my 3a/3b curls to larger, longer 2c/3a hair. I love it! For the first time I'm enjoying wearing my hair naturally all spring. This is a really stellar product (or at least, for my hair color/type) that does what it says it does. The only claim it didn't fulfill was additional shine, but my hair's always been pretty matte, so it didn't bother me. My medium dark brown hair and highlights don't appear any lighter from before. From my experience, the amount of product you put in and using sodium/sulfate-free products afterward is critical.

The first time I put it in, waited the two days and washed it noticeable difference. Frustrating. I washed it out with my normal products and got the awful stench that others have mentioned. Ever hopeful, I did a second shampoo and application with the products, putting in much more than the light coating I did before. I also bought the Organix BKT shampoo and conditioner and used those to wash my hair two days later. No stench this time. Didn't smell great, but it didn't smell bad either. There's no scent when my hair is dry. It's a week later and my hair is still amazing and insusceptible to moisture. My bf said that he could see water beading up on my hair. I could see this becoming an every 4 to 6-week treatment routine!

I know that chemical dyes cannot be put over henna, which I use every two months or so. But can this product be used on henna'd hair? Perhaps this is a question best asked to the company, but I thought I'd try here first.

After doing some research, it looks like henna before BKT actually works out well. I was surprised. If anyone has experienced something different, please let me know before I do this.

I just purchased this today... I didn't know it existed until today. Just happend to see it at CVS (got the last one too ) I have very fine, shoulder length 3a/3b hair.

I had a Brazilian Blowout in October (before all the formald. hoopla had come out) and loved the results, except for how flat my hair was at the roots the first month, but I could get a nice wave if wanted. Had a second one in January which didn't come out so well (that's what I get for buying it cheap on a Groupon). The woman slathered it on my hair and ironed it out in large sections, tons of vapor and fumes coming out...not a good experience and the result wasn't near as good. Frizzy on ends, almost felt heat damaged, and hair was super flat at roots and waviness was inconsistent (some strands would curl, some wouldn't). Hated it.

That prompted me less than 3 weeks later to start the modified curly girl routine. That was tough too getting a routine and products down right. I kept blaming it on the BB and thought it would be better once it wore off completely. I finally got to where my hair was doing well for about a month then, bam...frizzy, yuck. It dawned on me that it's most likely because the BB was completely gone. So I've been thinking about trying a different, safer product that can help me keep some wave.

So, my big question is this, do any of you all experience super flat hair at the roots with this product? Do you think if I left it off the area near the roots (about a half inch) it would help? or should I just go for it?

I so can't wait to try this! I'm camping out this weekend so I can't do it then.

I flat ironed my hair this week and curled the ends with my 3" curling iron. My husband told me he likes my hair best with a 2b pattern. I so hope this can take my 3a and relax it some.

Quick question....

Do you have to iron your ends straight? Or could I iron them slightly curled under?

When it's straight, my hair goes halfway down my back. I blow dry it with a round brush, flat iron everything except the last couple of inches and then use a 2" curling iron on the ends. It looks great but I'm getting up at the crack of dawn to get to work on time!

I'm dying to try this product, but I'd still like to be able to get that curl at the end. Anyone out there try curling the ends with a curling iron while the product was in their hair? Or has anyone tried just using a curling iron, in general, after the product has been washed out?
