Keratin: A natural Answer to Fighting Summer Frizz
Keratin is a protein that your hair and nails are made of naturally; this protein gets depleted over time due to harsh products used on the hair, the sun, the ozone, etc. This is why hair care professionals developed keratin treatments. These treatments, when infused with high heat create long lasting frizz free, smooth hair for months. Many have heard the rumors about keratin treatments containing formaldehyde when in fact it was a particular treatment using formaldehyde to smooth the hair. This chemical was actually not put in the product but when combined with a high heat turned to formaldehyde and thus posing a very dangerous health risk to the hairstylist and the client. But that is in the past and an old way of thinking as the hair world is constantly evolving and changing. Keratin treatments now use all natural extracts such as vanilla, apple, chocolate to create the same and longer lasting effect.
How it works: Like I said keratin is a protein that gets depleted over time and needs to be put back to allow hair to return to its natural state, especially in the summer months due to excessive humidity. Keratin actually seals the outer layer of the hair shaft blocking moisture and therefor making the hair less frizzy and smoother for up to 5 months. This treatment slowly fades out of the hair as you shampoo.
