Brazilian keratin Treatment

OVERVIEW
This is a treatment that is used to straighten and tame hair for a period of 3 months. In the past formaldehyde was used in the solution but was taken out in Europe to fears of the effects on hairdressers who used it a lot.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Hair is washed and a solution is painted on to hair. This can result in temporary sting of the eyes. The solution is sealed into the hair using a GHD or flat irons. It may be left on in the saloon for an hour or so or left on the hair for up to 3 days depending on the brand.
BENEFITS
Straight coiffured hair. Hair is easily maintained, even if some blow drying is required to achieve a blow dried look, overall time on hairs is decimated.
Hair is left is very strong and conditioned post treatment.
DOWNSIDES
You need to use a special salt free shampoo and conditioner as traditional salt based shampoos will wash the treatment from the hair.
In some treatments there is as long as a 3 day wait before you can wash the solution out of the hair.
Hair is lightened by a shade during the treatment.

    I had Brazilian Keratin treatments and they just didn't work for me! I'd been thinking about it for ages and it sounded brilliant but I was so disappointed! The effect literally lasted only slightly longer than a normal blow-dry. If anything yes it was easier to blow dry and straighten my hair, and it was nice and glossy. But my hair is pretty good anyway. Unfortunately this was not worth it for me.
