Keratin or Brazilian blowout hair treatments have been a phenomenal trend lately – it seems every salon I walk pass in Sydney offers this hair treatment. However with all the controversy around this treatment, I opted for a safer option – Keratin Treatment at Home!
There are a lot of Keratin Treatment Home kits to choose from in the market now. The price ranges from $200 a bottle to $50 a bottle. The one I bought is:
What is it?
It is a keratin treatment that you can use at home that will keep your hair straighter, shinier, stronger and frizz free for up to 6 weeks. It is a safe and inexpensive at home alternative containing NO Formaldehyde and other harmful chemical ingredients.
Basically you apply this product on your wet hair, completely saturating your hair with this product. Wait for 30 minutes then you can use GHD or any hair straightener to flat iron your hair to activate the ingredients.
My first impression when I received the product was – wow what a tiny product (120ml). Comparing this with my body lotin in travel size.
I didn’t use it on my entire hair. I only applied it on a few sections of my hair that was frizzy and really bothered me. I have to say I am quite impressed with the result, as I didn’t really have a high expectation on this product to begin with (simply because I have been disappointed at too many hair products in the past). My hair remained quite straight (still with some waves) and frizz free for up to 3 weeks, the best result starts to fade after 2 weeks, and by the end of 30 days my hair reverts back to its original condition. The biggest improvement was it added superior shine to my hair and a lot easier to manage. It is quite a small bottle – one bottle would only last 2-3 applications for me.
Would I recommend it?
Yes and No. Yes to people who have the same hair type as me, not too frizzy and just want the hair to be more manageable; softer and less frizzy.
No to people who have a whole head of frizzy hair or after the same result as you would get in the salon as I don’t think it would be ‘powerful’ enough.
