1) What is the difference between Keratin For Hair Smoothing & Keratin For Hair Intense Treatments ?
All of the treatments work to improve the quality of your hair by returning keratin ( a natural substance of the hair, skin and nails ) into the hair cuticle and revitalizing the feel, look and consistency of your hair combined with special Keratin Cure hydrating ingredients to give a natural shine and fabulous texture to your hair. Please make sure that your hair is strong enough to endure an intensive treatment that involves much washing, blow drying and flat ironing at very high temperatures. Brittle hair may require more strengthening and reparation treatments before performing any Keratin Treatment. We suggest using Keratin For Hair Masque. Below is a brief explanation of each of our treatments. Knowing your hair type, please examine which would be suitable for you.
** The Keratin For Hair Smoothing Treatments has no formaldehyde and will straighten the hair 70-90% depending on how course the hair was before the treatment, frizz is 100% eliminated. Some hair types may require more applications to reach the desired look – such as virgin hair (hair that never received a keratin treatment).
**The Keratin For Hair Intense Treatment does produce fumes and is a bit strong. Professionals find this treatment very easy to apply as it was the first formula on the market that you did not have to wait three days to wash and should not be performed on pregnant/nursing women or children. Will straighten the hair 95-100% depending on how course the hair was before the treatment. Frizz is 100% eliminated.
Q. Who is the best candidate for the The Keratin For Hair Intense Treatment ?
A: Everyone is a good candidate for our The Keratin For Hair Intense Treatment ! Especially those with frizzy, damaged or processed hair. Our Keratin Cure treatments are hair reconstructers which work to repair the hair root to tip and would benefit every type of hair (permed, fine, course, frizzy, curly, extensions, Japanese treatments). Having a The Keratin For Hair Intense Treatment is a ticket to a shinier, more luxurious and healthier hair that looks great! The only requirement would be to make sure that your hair can endure the treatment. You hair must be strong enough to experience the intense washing, blow drying and flat ironing needed to complete the treatment successfully.
Q. Can I still receive a The Keratin For Hair Intense Treatment if I have highlights and/or color?
A: It’s actually suggested for color and highlighted subjects to receive The Keratin For Hair Intense Treatment because of all of the conditioning properties our products provide the hair, all while sealing these wonderful ingredients beneath the cuticles with keratin strength. Their color will result in being more vibrant after the process. When re-applying color, just leave the color about 8 minutes longer than usual to make sure that the color penetrates through the treatment. There is NO RISK at all with color changing with this formula!
Q. Can you apply the treatment directly on top of other relaxers and strengtheners?
A: Coloring, perming, or straightening leave permanent gaps and flaws in the cuticle layer. These flaws allow hydrolyzed keratin (amino acids and polypeptides) to penetrate more easily into the hair shaft and also act as attachment sites for keratin on the surface of the cuticle. Due to the porous nature of processed hair, retention of the added keratin and its building blocks is also enhanced, so the effect from the treatment can last longer. Also, already damaged will naturally benefit more from the The Keratin For Hair Intense Treatment because it improves shine, suppleness, and softness.
Q. Will my hair lose volume if I receive the The Keratin For Hair Intense Treatment ?
A: Not generally. We suggest that the hair professional determine whether the client wants to maintain volume on their hair. If so, then the hair professional should apply styling techniques to flat iron the hair during the treatment with an angle to ensure that the client will have the look that he or she is comfortable with.
Q. Will my hair return to its original state after the treatment has completed its life cycle?
A: The roots of the hair will of course be different from the rest of the hair when time has passed. The Keratin For Hair Intense Treatments will last two to six months on the hair, depending on whether or not the client washes the hair only with products that do not contain sodium chloride. Even after the hair completes the cycle of a Keratin For Hair Intense Treatment , the hair will be stronger and healthier than ever before, because of the conditioning treatment which remains permanent, and the cuticles that are sealed. Continuing periodically with The Keratin For Hair Intense Treatment , and maintenance kit guarantees gloriously healthy hair.
Q. Can you color your hair the same day you receive a treatment?
Yes, but it is best if you apply color before the treatment because of the need to use clarifying shampoo for most color treatments and clarifying shampoo will strip the Keratin treatment from the hair.
Q. Can you swim in the pool or ocean after you have the treatment?
Please be aware that any exposure to salt or and chlorine will strip the hair of any Keratin Treatment. One can enjoy the water as long as the hair is not exposed to extreme environments involving salt and or chlorine. Use Keratin For Hair Serum to protect the hair if you choose to swim.
Q. How soon can you touch up your color after you receive the Treatment?
We would suggest you have color applied before the treatment for best results.
Q. How soon can I wash my hair after treatment?
You can wash your hair anytime after The Keratin For Hair Intense Treatment ! Most wash their hair the same evening or the night after.
Q. Can I receive the treatment if I have over-processed blonde hair? What if my hair is platinum blonde?
A: The Keratin For Hair Intense Treatment are the best prescription for clients with over processed blonde or platinum blonde hair because of the deep conditioning and shine that will occur with our Brazilian Keratin Treatments. Unlike competitor’s keratin treatments, our products do not make any changes on the customer’s actual hair color, it enhances, and reveals it, indeed. The Keratin For Hair Intense Treatment are sure to bring vivid color and restoration to clients with over processed hair.
Q. Can you perform a treatment on extensions?
A: Yes. It’s best to perform the treatments on the extensions separately (with the same steps that one would normally) before the extensions are finalized on the hair. If the treatment is to be performed on hair with extension, please have extreme care to application and flat ironing on the bonded areas to avoid separation of the hair and extensions.
Q. Can I receive a treatment if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?
A: To be absolutely safe, we do not advise the application of this keratin treatment on any pregnant breast feeding woman.
Q. How soon can I receive a treatment after I receive my first treatment?
A: We advised at least 10 days for the keratin to fully penetrate sit and stabilize into the hair. There is no harm in additional treatments and actually the more applications are performed, the better the hair will become.
Q. What is the active chemical in the treatment solution that makes it work so well?
All of our Straightener Treatments contain keratin amino acids which empower a stronger, more shinier hair and add to moisturize and restore the vibrance and natural shine of the hair. With each treatment the keratin will be sealed within the cuticle of the hair along with all of all of the wonderful ingredients that make Beauty Cosmetica products work effectively within the hair for the duration of the treatment.
Q. How is the treatment different from the Japanese straightening method many people are familiar with?
A: Japanese hair straightening actually compromises and flattens the the hair as well as being highly damaging to hair. Brazilian Keratin Treatments do not permanently straighten the hair but assist in making the hair react to being styled by heat very quickly. When flat ironing or blow drying the hair, the client will have styled their hair in more than half the time than they do usually (and with much more vibrant, healthier hair). With more Keratin For Hair Intense Treatments , the hair will become straighter. For more complicated hair types, it is best to perform a relaxer on the hair before having a Keratin For Hair Intense Straightening Treatment applied to achieve a straighter result.
