To do this, we picked up the most popular tools that are used for keratin hair straightening. Each of the presented products requires special care after use. This is necessary to extend the effect. It is very important to select products according to the type of hair and carefully study the further use of products for daily hair care.
General description of keratin hair straightening
Keratin hair straightening is a relatively new type of procedure, most often carried out in specialized salons. The main goal of this method is to straighten and restore the health of a deformed hair, because human hair regularly suffers from various external factors, such as the scorching sun, cold wind or water containing chlorine and salts of heavy metals.
Keratin hair straightening combats the effects of negative environmental influences. Often this method is called "Brazilian", because it is the Brazilian women who have luxurious thick and straight curls. From Brazil came to us this method of restoring the density of the hair structure.
This method provides intensive treatment of curls. Human hair is almost entirely made up of keratin. However, over time, the curls are increasingly suffering from its lack. Penetrating into the hair structure, keratin enriches it, protects against ultraviolet radiation, as well as cigarette smoke, street dust. Empty hair cells are filled with this substance. Thus, keratin prolongs the life of a long hair.
Before you start the procedure itself straightening, you must choose which one keratin to use. Cosmetic corporations are constantly working to improve their formulas, because in the market you can find a huge amount of keratin for hair. One of the largest brands producing hair keratinizing lines is CocoChoco.
The products of this company differ in quality, which guarantees a long effect of straightening (up to five months). The advantage of this cosmetics is the absence of harmful chemicals. This company is only a few years on the market, but managed to establish itself as a responsible manufacturer. Because keratin from KokoChoko is used in Europe, Asia and America.
Keratin from BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT is very popular. Its feature is the ability to completely remove static electricity from the hair, as well as give them a dazzling shine. This tool does not contain any chemicals, as well as convenient to use. The entire application procedure takes about one and a half hours. Effect lasts up to 12 weeks. During this period, the client can swim in the pool, sunbathe, curl and pull their hair.
It is important to remember that after keratin hair straightening, in no case should you use shampoos that contain sulfates, otherwise the effect of the procedure will disappear instantly. The leader in the production of all-natural shampoos and other cosmetics is the Russian company Mulsan Cosmetic. All products manufactured by it are enriched with vitamin complexes and contain vegetable oils and extracts that have a beneficial effect on the condition of the hair and scalp. In the composition of cosmetics from Mulsan Cosmetic you will not find such ingredients as parabens, silicones, sulfates and other components that will harm the keratin straightening. Among other things, all products underwent mandatory certification and received official documents confirming its high quality and absolute safety. We recommend to visit the site mulsan.ru, where you can choose natural and safe cosmetics that suit you.

Pros keratin hair straightening
Masters who work with keratin, argue that with this tool it is possible to restore more than 95% of the hair mass. The duration of the result varies from the state in which the hair was before the start of the procedure. At best, they will be perfectly smooth for more than two and a half months.
The procedure has several advantages:
- The composition of the mixture for straightening has a minimum amount of aldehydes (substances that are used for organic compounds with groups of keratins). Therefore, the negative influence of chemicals on the structure of the hair is completely excluded.
The procedure gently pulls the hair, giving it an incredible shine.
After keratin, your hair will not weigh down.
Hair will not stick together and look untidy or dirty.
Another significant advantage of this popular procedure is the admissibility of combining it with hair dyeing. However, it is worth being careful: after straightening, the color of the curls can change exactly the tone. Therefore, before painting, consider this factor. If you want to return the original hair color, you should contact the hairdresser not earlier than two weeks after the previous coloring.
Keratin hair straightening works with absolutely any type of hair. It can be carried out even after a failed perm by chemical means. Even the most naughty curl straightened under the influence of useful keratin!
After the procedure, the curls become soft and silky, and the process of combing is easy and pleasant. Hair styling takes much less time, and there is no need to use special styling products at all.
But it is worth remembering that this effect can be achieved only if the materials for the procedure were of high quality and reliable. Do not trust your beauty to untested salons and low-quality products, even if you are captivated by the low price of the procedure.
Cons keratin hair straightening
Despite all its undeniable advantages, keratin straightening procedure has a number of disadvantages. For proper procedure, you need to heat the iron to a very high temperature (more than 200 degrees Celsius). During the heating of the hair, a chemical reaction is formed, as a result of which keratin begins to curl. Staying on the top layer of hair, it forms a protective coating. This layer provides all of the above effects from the procedure.
The downside is that while you are pulling the hair with an iron or curling a curling you will breathe harmful vapors. Formaldehyde substances are part of many styling styling. However, it is realistic to find a quality product, which will include only natural ingredients.
Straightening is a definite stress for the “live” part of our hair, for the roots and the bulbs. After the procedure, the curls become heavier, because keratin sticks to the sheath of the hair. The situation may worsen the length of the hair. The longer the hair, the higher the risk that the hair will begin to fall.
Women who have had experience with the procedure, note that after keratin straightening, the hair quickly loses volume. This is true, but with each shampooing the volume will return. It is also worth considering that washing your hair after the first application of keratin is allowed only after three days.
Another disadvantage is the rapid contamination of the hair. This can be explained by the fact that after the loss of volume they are closer to each other and to the surface of the head. Sebum is constantly produced by our glands and is easily distributed throughout the mass of hair. But to wash your hair often after keratinizing is not recommended, because the substance is washed out over time from the structure of the hair.
Peculiarities of keratin hair straightening procedure
The procedure for straightening hair with keratin is quite expensive, because many women prefer to carry it on their own. Which method of keratinization of hair to choose, it is up to you. However, it should be emphasized: even the most proven folk methods of hair restoration (henna, gelatin, yolk) cannot be compared in efficiency with salon procedures.
The best keratin hair straightening at home
Of course, to achieve the professional effect of straightening hair at home will not work. But a certain rejuvenation and restoration of homemade recipes can provide.
Cosmetics for hair restoration keratin at home is different from professional. The method of application is also different. One set of cosmetics will cost on average as much as the whole procedure in the salon. However, it is enough for 8-10 times of use.
To carry out a useful procedure at home, you need to prepare: cosmetics for restoration, a spray bottle, a round comb, shampoo for daily cleansing, an iron for straightening hair, a hairdryer.
Keratin hair restoration procedure requires a certain preparation, we act according to the following scheme:
- Wash hair, dry hair dryer, carefully comb.
On the shoulders we cover the film (you can use the usual food), which will save the skin from pollution. Wear gloves.
Hair collected at the top with a hairpin or gum. This will help gently pull out strands of hair for application.
In a spray pour a means with keratin. Do not pour all the contents out of the package, because the tool can not be stored for a long time in an open container.
Carefully remove one strand from the hair bundle and treat it with a spray bottle. You can pre-divide all hair into four equal sections for ease of application.
After applying the strand immediately combed. In case of contact with the epidermis of the head, we try to remove it as far as possible.
After the hair on the entire circumference of the head has been processed, we gather it together and wait 15 minutes for the agent to penetrate into the structure.
The final step will be a flat ironing, preferably with a ceramic coating, you can also apply a special serum with keratins.
How to make keratin hair straightening in the salon
Salon straightening has several advantages compared to home. At the preparation stage, the master professionally assesses the condition of the hair, and also decides what kind of remedy from a huge variety suits you The whole procedure is divided into three stages: cleansing, care, straightening.
As a rule, the master in the cabin acts in this order:
- At the beginning of the procedure, the hair is thoroughly washed with a special shampoo. So they are cleaned of dust, styling products, grease. Hair becomes more susceptible to keratin.
After cleaning, a mixture of protein and keratin is applied to the hair. It is applied to all the curls, gently retreating from the roots of the hair. With this mixture, you must sit for about half an hour.
After such treatment with keratin you will become the owner of healthy and strong hair, and caring for them will become easier and more pleasant.
Keratin hair straightening
After you have completed keratin straightening, you must follow the rules for hair care. For the first few days, follow these instructions:
- Do not collect hair in a bun or a pigtail with hairpins, elastics, and hairpins.
Do not wash your hair.
In addition, you can not paint the curls about two to three weeks. Try to pre-highlight or paint in order not to disturb the effect of keratin. It is also important to remember that keratin can persist in hair from two to six months. The period of action depends not only on the obedience of your hair, but also on the care of them.
For hair that has extra keratin in its structure, sulfate-free care products are needed. Usually in the salons provide such cosmetics for one or two weeks. But it is necessary to nourish hair every day. It is recommended to purchase keratin shampoo, as well as a rinse and a mask for comprehensive care.
If you start washing your hair with sulphate shampoo, the effect of the procedure will disappear very quickly. Salts from conventional means simply wash keratin from the hair.
Lightening and highlighting the hair is allowed, but only two weeks after keratin recovery. Try not to buy paint, which is part of ammonia.

Stages of keratin hair straightening
Keratin hair straightening is done more often by girls with curly, unruly and porous hair, but even those who by nature have even hair can also do this procedure, because keratin primarily restores hair, makes it more elastic and shiny, straightening is as an addition.
If you have decided to do keratin hair straightening, be sure to go to a good salon, to an experienced, skilled craftsman, who use high-quality raw materials. At least the first few times to explore the essence of the procedure, and then you can try to do at home, but I still do not recommend.
The whole procedure depends entirely on the master and the quality of keratin!
Stage 1. The master based on the type of hair and of course on their condition selects the appropriate composition. It is very important to do everything in the correct dosage and then this procedure will have a healing regenerating effect on the hair (at home it is quite difficult to do). You must use the tools in strict accordance with the instructions. It is precisely the strict implementation of the instructions will allow keratin to penetrate deep into the hair structure and have the proper effect.
Stage 2. The master combs his hair and prepares it for thorough cleansing, using a special deep cleansing shampoo. Shampoo deeply cleanses hair from various impurities (styling products, silicones, sebum, dust and other impurities), then they will be well filled with keratin.
Stage 3. Then the hair is slightly dried with a hair dryer and keratin is applied. It is important to carefully distribute the product over the entire length, since hair smoothing depends on it in all areas. Be sure to see that the mixture does not touch the hair roots. After some time, the hair is dried with a hairdryer until it is completely dry.
Stage 4. Then the hair is divided into zones and small strands are taken and carefully straightened with an iron (for different keratin the temperature can be different from 180-200 to 230 degrees), this is necessary in order to seal the keratin in the inside of the hair. After the procedure, all the hair scales are completely closed and tight to each other, as a result, the hair looks elastic, docile, shiny and well-groomed.
The smell during the procedure is tolerable, but here the eyes start to get a little watery, I recommend as soon as you feel a slight burning sensation in the eyes, just close them.
If everything is done correctly, the result will not keep you waiting: your hair will be soft, you can even say “live”, smooth, elastic, shiny, weighted. Keratin hair straightening has cumulative effect.
How to care for hair after keratin straightening
The effect of the procedure is preserved from 3 to 6 months and therefore it is very important to properly care for your hair after keratin straightening, so that the result will delight you as long as possible.
Some compounds allow you to wash your hair immediately after the procedure, and some recommend to refrain from washing your hair for three days and not stab their hairpins, rubber bands so that there are no wrists.
Choose a gentle, sulfate-free care!
Some manufacturers will definitely recommend a special keratin shampoo and conditioner that will provide a prolonged effect of keratin straightening.
Shampoo. Shampoo must be chosen without sulfate, so the effect of the procedure will last much longer.
Air conditioning and mask. Despite the fact that the hair looks, you can even say perfect, care for them is needed as always. That is, after each wash we apply an air conditioner or a mask, preferably more natural formulations.
Indelible funds. Oils, fluids, crystals also need hair for extra care and appearance shine.
Pros and cons of keratin hair straightening
- Immediate effect, that is, perfectly smooth hair you get immediately after the procedure and the effect lasts for three to six months (with proper care).
- The hair is perfectly straight, soft, elastic and incredibly shiny ... and so for several months. And besides, during rain or wet weather, hair still looks perfect.
- Hair is easy to comb and does not electrify, for owners of unruly hair is just a godsend.
- Keratin straightening has a cumulative effect, with each procedure, the result will last longer.
- Keratin straightening can be done both on dyed hair and on unstained. You can dye your hair immediately before the procedure, or 1-2 weeks after.
- After keratin straightening, you can safely style and even curl your hair, they are easy to style. Drying and styling hair takes much less time.
There are also disadvantages to this procedure:
- The downside is that volume is removedBecause porous hair looks voluminous, and after the procedure the hair looks smooth and docile, but many note that after shampooing several times the volume returns a little.
- Keratin straightening is not suitable for girls with very thin hair, because after the procedure they will look even thinner.
- Many girls note that after the procedure, the hair needs to be washed more frequently than before keratin straightening.
- During the procedure, when keratin is soldered with the help of an ironing device, the composition of keratin can slightly cut the eyes and the smell is not pleasant.
- Some manufacturers in the compositions for straightening use formaldehyde, which is considered a carcinogen and can be dangerous, its share should not exceed 0.2%. Therefore, very carefully choose the brand of keratin. Formaldehyde is used in cheaper products, mainly produced in Brazil. Formaldehyde is a chemical substance that, after prolonged exposure to the hair, can adversely affect their condition and the general condition of the body.
Keratin straightening fits:
- if the hair is split and not only at the tips, but also along the length of the hair, they look dull, lifeless and brittle,

- if the hair is pushed and "sharply" react to wet weather,

What is keratin straightening
This is a procedure. not only straightens strands, but also restores damaged hair structure. Keratin reduces the effects of the negative influence of external factors on curls. They become elastic, more dense and obedient.
How long does keratin hair straighten? It all depends on how the procedure was performed - from 2 to 5 months. This is one of the most effective ways to restore hair.
The mechanism of action of keratin on the hair
Human hair is almost entirely made up of keratin..
But due to adverse environmental factors, this substance becomes smaller.
Therefore, the curls lose their shine and healthy appearance.
During application, small particles of keratin, penetrating into the hair, restore the structure, filling the damaged areas of the hair.
This contributes to the rapid recovery, thereby curls acquire shine, silkiness, strength. Such a deep recovery allows you to create a keratin layer that does not collapse under the influence of various factors. Then this layer is washed off, so the procedure can be done again.
Instructions for the keratin recovery
It is better to entrust this service to qualified craftsmen using quality tools. How is keratin hair straightening done?

To conduct such a wellness procedure does not require training courses and certificates, but to get the desired result is to consult with a specialist.
But is keratinization performed on its own so effective?

- The effect of the salon procedure is more durable. - about 5 months. And home straightening should be repeated after 2 months.
- If you want to buy a professional keratin mix, then its cost will be approximately the same as going to a professional. However, the funds will be enough to conduct a large number of procedures.
You can find masks recipes using gelatin, but remember that they do not give such an effect as mixtures containing keratin. They have a similar effect, but professional tools allow you to deeply restore the structure of the hair.

Straightening is more aimed at improving the hair structure, so the composition for this procedure stronger than lamination. And the effect of keratinization is more resistant. Keratin treatment is a great opportunity to restore hair and give it a well-groomed look.
Opinion of the doctor-trichologist on lamination and keratin straightening, as well as an exotic procedure - pyrophoresis in this video:
The secret of Inoar cosmetics is the high content in the composition of a special substance - keratin, which occupies more than 90% of the hair structure. Keratin is a kind of building material for hair.
Frequent changes of images, styling, different types of curls, coloring and even daily cleansing procedures harm the hair, thinning and drying them. The loss of keratin makes them brittle, dry and lifeless. Keratin for hair Inoar effectively affects the structure. It fills the damaged areas and restores the lock.

What is the procedure keratin hair straightening
The process of keratising strands is inherently very similar to perm. Under the influence of certain cosmetics, the hair structure softens and partially collapses, after which a new shape is given to the curls.
In the case of chemical perm, this is achieved by winding the strands on the curlers, and during keratinization, this is achieved by heat treatment with a hot hairdressing iron.
As for the safety of both methods, in contrast to the perm that causes irreparable damage to the hair structure, the keratin straightening method is one of the restoring procedures, since keratin penetrating deep into the cuticle restores the damaged hair structure, improving it.
This is not surprising - because our hair is almost entirely composed of keratin, and under the influence of harmful environmental factors, there is a gradual loss of this vital protein, leading to a loss of their appearance.
In the process of keratin straightening strands is their saturation with protein. By filling in the voids formed, keratin restores the damaged hair structure, helping to close the scales of the damaged cuticle.
Curls, get rid of the porous structure, cease to electrify and push. To prevent keratin leaching, the strands are heat treated, sealing it securely in the hair shaft tissues.
- The client's hair is first thoroughly washed using a special shampoo, making the curls particularly susceptible to the effects of the main components of the rectifying compound. The hair is rid of dirt, dust, sebum and styling residues.
- Clean hair dry hair dryer.
- Armed with a special brush, the specialist applies a keratin composition to the strands, selected according to the type of hair. The application is carried out on the entire length of the hair (the master at the same time slightly recedes from the roots).
- Wrapping the head with plastic wrap, create a greenhouse effect and maintain a half-hour pause. As a result of the manipulations, keratin manages to fill all the voids in the damaged structure of the hair and glue the ajar scales.
- After removing the film, the master starts combing and drying the hair with a hair dryer and a special brush.
- The dried strands are alternately treated with a hot iron warmed to 230 degrees. Heat treatment strands bake keratin, keeping it inside each hair.

The technique of self-deposition of keratin also has a number of differences:
- After washing the hair using a special keratin containing shampoo, they are dried and combed well.
- Shoulders covered with cling film, hands protected with plastic gloves.
- To facilitate the process of extracting the strands before applying the keratin composition, the whole mass of hair is grasped with a rubber band at the crown. You can also use a stud or a special clip.
- Having measured a certain amount of keratin (from 50 to 100 ml - depending on the length of the curls), pour it into the atomizer.
- Carefully separating the strands from the total beam, they are treated with a composition from a spray bottle. The preliminary division of the strands into four sections will greatly simplify this process.
- The keratin treated strand is immediately combed. The product on the scalp should be immediately removed with a cotton pad.
- After processing the entire mass of hair, give keratin to penetrate into the structure of damaged strands, making a fifteen-minute pause.
- After that, they start drying their hair with a round brush and a hair dryer, working in a low-temperature mode, not forgetting to periodically comb individual strands.
- Each dried curl is treated with a hot iron (it is best to use the device with ceramic plates).
- The final stage of this process is the application to the hair of a small amount of special keratin-containing serum.

Disadvantages and possible consequences
No cosmetic procedure is complete without a list of shortcomings. Keratin straightening is no exception to this rule.
What are the disadvantages for girls who decide to go through the procedure of keratin hair straightening?
- Cleaners, fixated on the purity of their strands, will be upset upon learning that they will not be able to wash their hair for three days after the procedure.
- Just straightened hair should be protected from rain jets: leaving the salon in rainy weather, you must use an umbrella. The impact of sea water and wet snow is just as detrimental to the strands that have just been treated, therefore, during the aforementioned timeframe, it will be necessary to abandon visiting places with high air humidity: a pool, a sauna or a bath.
- The chemical composition of means for straightening curls can include substances that can cause a strong allergic reaction of the body.
- For seventy-two hours after a straightening session, it is impossible to expose the hair to even the slightest mechanical impact associated with braiding the braids, gathering them in the tail, roller or bundle. For the same reason, you should not use ribbons, hairpins and rubber bands. The only hairstyle option at this moment is loose strands, which can only be laid behind the ears.
- The procedure can cause severe tearing caused by exposure to formaldehyde vapors released during the heat treatment of the strands.
- Performing the procedure in a room that is not equipped with a hood or does not have good ventilation can cause serious formaldehyde poisoning that can trigger the development of cancer.
- Keratin hair straightening causes the inevitable breaking off of the tips, requiring their regular cutting.
- Keratinated strands of the fat type can create a feeling of untidy, greasy hair.
- In some cases (as a rule, this applies to thin and loose strands), the procedure can lead to a significant decrease in hair volume.
- On a thick head of hair consisting of thick hair, the achieved result will not last too long.
- The process of straightening curls is a time-consuming procedure. Owners of long (to the waist) hair will have to spend at least five hours in the salon.
- The keratin-treated head of hair will have to be washed more often, as thickened hairs that fit tightly together will more intensively absorb the secret of the sebaceous glands.
One of the most significant drawbacks of hair keratinization is the high cost of the procedure, due to the high cost of cosmetics used.
Hair that has gone through a keratin straightening procedure requires special care:
- The first shampooing is possible only three days after the performed session.
- Keratinated strands can be washed only with a specialized non-sulfate shampoo. When using conventional products for washing the hair, the salts that are in their composition will facilitate the rapid washing out of keratin from the reconstituted strands and the effect achieved will quickly disappear.
- During the first month after the procedure, you can not dye your hair and expose it to hot irons or curling irons.
- When dyeing hair is allowed to use paint, which does not include ammonia.
- To maintain the achieved effect, cosmetologists advise to sleep on a pillow with a pillowcase sewn of satin or silk.
- Weekly it is necessary to carry out nutritious masks.
- It is undesirable to do hairstyles that require the use of hairpins, ribbons and rubber bands.

A couple of years ago I had the imprudence to do a perm from a novice hairdresser. The result was depressing: with a shock of small curls, I became like a poodle. On the advice of a friend, I immediately turned to a very good hair salon, but it turned out that straightened strands can be straightened only two weeks after the curling. Barely waiting for the appointed day, I came to an experienced stylist and four hours later I became the owner of a whole cascade of silky and soft strands. Such hair can be seen on the pages of glossy magazines. I could not even dream of anything more: keratin straightening just saved my curls and made me attractive again.
Nature rewarded me with disobedient curly curls, which not every brush can cope with. Over the years, every morning I tried to comb my thick curls almost every hour. When I learned about the existence of hairdressing utensils, I acquired such a device for myself, and to the torture of combing added straightening manipulations to strands. Tired of daily fussing with hair, I decided to use the help of professional craftsmen. The resulting effect is tantamount to a miracle. My curls were transformed, becoming obedient and very smooth.
The decision to make keratinizing strands, as it turned out, was my greatest mistake. Soon after visiting the hairdresser, I noticed that my hair began to fall out very actively. The master explained to me that the reason for this was the weakened bulbs of my hair, which could not bear the weight of the weighted strands. For the past twelve weeks I have been walking with straightened and glossy, but such rare strands. I want to warn the girls with thin, sparse and weak hair: the procedure for keratin straightening strands is not your option.
