Want Beautiful, Smooth, Shiny, Silky Hair?
Keratin "straightening" systems are all the rage now just like the Japanese straightening systems were in the past. The problem with the Japanese system was that the hair was often not left in great condition at the end of the process...yes it was straight, but not shiny or silky. I started to hear about Brazilian or Keratin systems awhile ago. Following my curiosity I looked into them to help my frizzy and curly haired clients. Most of them contained Formaldehyde, Formalin or Aldehyde. Not good for the hair, the client, the stylist and other customers in the salon to breathe. Most systems required gloves, masks, air filtration systems - scary for flat hair! The FDA has a lot of questions about these products.
I recently was lucky enough to start using All-Nutrient Organic Color and took a class from their head chemist Tony Difraia. He introduced me to their Keratin+ Treatment. Wow, the results were pretty amazing. No fumes, no harmful chemicals and beautiful hair. I was sold. This system is so gentle I do it without wearing any gloves. It is safe for all hair types and can be used over any (yes any) other relaxer or straightener. It is safe for color treated hair, blocks humidity, protects, repairs and seals hair...who wouldn't want this. Yes it takes time to have done correctly, but it is worth it.
Today I got to do this service on my first in salon client. She has coarse, frizzy, wavy red hair. On a humid day in Cincinnati, her hair lasts about 3 minutes after she walks out the door. Add to that being a working, single mom who doesn't have the time to spend on her hair. She left the salon, 3 hours later smiling, running her fingers thru her hair and flipping it around like a model in a hair product ad on TV.
