Hair treatment using the Brazilian Keratin method is a popular way to get your hairstyle the way you want it. The two part method is used by many hairdressers in the country and many salons in Johannesburg as well as Cape Town make use of the Keratin method to correct damage that’s already been done and to ease stubborn frizz. Also, it’s much easier to blow dry your hair once you’ve used Keratin, and straightening out those waves is a breeze. The product is also available as a home kit, but it is always nice to go to a salon and have a professional do it for you.
There are a few different ways to do this, but one of the most popular ways of hair treatment using Brazilian Keratin method is the way it is done at the salons in Cape Town and Johannesburg. First of all, the hairdressers will wash your hair with the clarifying shampoo, then the Keratin treatment will be applied (this treatment normally contains something called Formaldehyde). Once the treatment has been worked into the hair nicely, it will be rinsed out. A hot flat iron will be used for the straightening of the hair and possibly a blow dry too.
The whole treatment process can take anything from an hour to an hour and a half, depending on the type of hair you have; the length, thickness, etc. You shouldn’t tie up your hair for at least three days after you have had the Keratin method done as this does not allow the treatment to set as it should. This also means that you should avoid tucking your hair behind your ears when it is loose and do not use a headband or sunglasses to keep your hairstyle back. Also, you should not swim and get your hair wet. This popular treatment can be done on any types of hairstyles.
