What is Keratin?
Keratin is the type of protein that makes up your hair, skin, and nails. It is the structural building block of your hair. It is a protective protein, less prone to scratching or tearing than other types of cells your body produces.
People who use keratin on their hair report that their hair is smoother and easier to manage as a result. The effects vary greatly depending on whether your hair is healthy to begin with, what the natural thickness of your hair is, and what kind of keratin treatment you use. Keratin works by smoothing down the cells that overlap to form your hair strands. The layers of cells, called the hair cuticle, theoretically absorb the keratin, resulting in hair that looks full and glossy. Keratin also claims to make curly hair less frizzy, easier to style, and straighter in appearance.
Salon Keratin treatments
Sometimes called the Brazilian keratin treatment, this time-intensive method of using keratin involves several steps. First, a cream is applied to your hair before it’s blown dry and straightened in a salon. Once the treatment is applied, you’re instructed to keep your hair dry for several days. When you visit the salon to have the treatment washed out, another treatment is applied to “set” the straightening effect. This treatment can last for up to 12 weeks.
Keratin serums, shampoos, and conditioners:
Keratin serums, shampoos, and conditioners can’t make the same claims as a keratin treatment in a salon. But they do claim to make hair more damage-resistant and repair hair that has been dried out by heat and hair dye. Researchers concluded in 2013 that the active components of keratin were a promising ingredient for people that wanted stronger hair.
