It is getting popular in many countries apart from Brazil. Brazilian keratin treatment is one the best option for settling your unruly hair. Anyone can apply this treatment be it a girl or a guy. If anyone wants to get rid of curly and rough hair, Brazilian keratin is the solution.

The Brazilian Keratin Treatment is the most recent trend sweeping the nation and is now available at a salon near you
The reason why the Brazilian Hair Straightening is a better option than the Japanese straightened is that the latter has a high alkaline content that has the potential to harm the structure of your hair.
This product works wonders on curly and wavy hair. In fact, the Brazilian Hair Straightening gives you the option of choosing a color for your hair during straightening. Moreover, there is no hassle about hair breakage because this product is for temporary action. The chemical does not affect the internal construct of your hair. It only works on the cuticle and does not get into the cortex, thereby enabling great action by the keratin.
If you are still wondering whether to try the treatment or not, here a more reasons why you should give it a try:
The application is hassle free and it saves a lot of your time. The product is safe and does not harm your hair, even if a chemical has treated it previously.
It gives the user beautiful straight hair.
This treatment is ideal for the client who wants strong and healthy hair. Here is how to do it:
The product is a shampoo that contains keratin. It is free from chemicals like sodium chloride. Wet the hair and then put the solution on the scalp. For about five minutes, gently massage the head and then wash with warm water. After the wash, put a mask on the saturated hair and blow dry for ten minutes. Following the drying, wash the mask away with warm water. Anti-Frizz lotion- to get the right style for the client, apply a small amount of this solution to wet hair and create the style that the client likes. At last, when all is done, put the finishing touch with a little bit of serum in the hair.
This treatment is well worth the investment for the shine, the ease, and the look of your after the beautiful treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a Brazilian blowdry and Japanese straightening?
The Brazilian blow dry is a keratin treatment that will fade from your hair after a few months rather than grow out. It conditions your hair, has no chemicals, and it's awesome for the overall health of your hair. However, it's ridiculously expensive.
Japanese straightening is a lot of heat combined with harsh chemicals that can damage your hair pretty severely if not done right. I don't know about pricing for it, but I'm imagining it's not very cheap either (dont' take my word for it). Also, rather than fading out slowly, it grows out so it can look a bit awkward between touch ups.
What's the difference between hair relaxers, Japanese hair straightening and Brazilian hair straightening?
Thanks so much!
Japanese thermal and Relaxers are permanent straighteners, no curl should remain
Brazilian Keratin is not permanent nor a straightener. The keratin makes your hair follicles smoother and stronger so they straighten easier and don't frizz. So when wet your natural curls will return but there will be no/less frizz
Japanese Thermal & Brazilian Keratin use heat-blow dry/flat iron to modify/straighten the hair shaft
Relaxers do not, just rely on chemical to break down the curl pattern
Brazilian Keratin can be used on natural hair or after a regular relaxer. You would get the relaxer first, then the keratin treatment to help strengthen the hair.
Japanese thermal and Relaxers can only be used on natural hair, and should not be mixed with each other or over processed (reapplying a relaxer cause you don't think its straight enough)
Retouch all depends on hair texture, and Japanese thermal is the longest process if your hair is virgin and long, taking several hours to maybe an 30 mins with a relaxer on resistant, long hair
Japenese Thermal 3-6 months - new growth only
Brazilian Keratin 3-4 months - all over
Relaxer 6-8 weeks - new growth only
How can I get my hair straight or close to it without damaging it?
I don't mind my hair being curly... but my hair is unmanageable it is naturally VERY VERY curly. But I straighten it every single day, with a very hot flat iron to get in bone straight. It takes so long and it is KILLING my hair. I want my hair to have manageability, curly or straight without any damage to my hair. Ive researched Keratin Treatments, Brazilian Treatments, relaxers, Thermal Straightening, Japanese Straightening, etc. I just want to know do all of these work? What are the differences between them? which works best? do they cause damage and breakage of your hair? I am Bi-racial and my hair is very frizzy curly and course in certain areas of my head. Can anyone help? what would be the best for my hair?
Once you’ve applied the serum, you can let your hair dry naturally, or blow-dry and style as you normally do. Hair serums can help protect your hair if you use heat-styling tools like blow-dryers, curling irons, or straightening irons. I am sure above tips and home remedies for straighten hair treatment will be greatly help full to you.

Can somebody PLEASE explain to me exactly what a bralizian blowout is?
Hello, I have wavy/curly hair that I actually really like. However, there are times when I like my hair to be straight for a while. I read that the brazilian blowout tames it in a permanent blowout for 10-12 weeks. I was wondering if this is a true because this is said about the Keratin treatment and my friend got that exact treatment (Keratin) and it barely eliminated a single flyaway and her hair is justm medium-curly (so is mine.) I am also very concerned about whether or not my hair will be the same after this blowout. I love my waves, though I like to tame them every know and then, and damaging them is a major concern of mine. So, these are my top questions.
1) Does it really give you a blowout for a while and not just eliminate frizz?
2) Does it damage your hair?
3) How long does it last?
Please include sources and refrain from including links. Thank you!
The Brazilian Blowout is different from Japanese straightening and other Brazilian straighteners because it doesn't completely straighten the hair. The hair still has plenty of volume and body and can still be worn curly or wavy. The Brazilian just softens whatever curl or wave you have. If the hair is air dried without a blow dryer, it will still have wave or curl but no frizz. On the flip side, if you want to blow dry your hair straight, you can do that, without a brush, in a fraction of the amount of time it would have taken without the Brazilian. Also, with other methods, there is a line of demarcation, meaning that when new hair grows in, it is curly/ wavy while the rest of the hair is straight. This blowout method washes away with time and is diffused, so there is no noticeable difference between new hair and treated hair. Other methods also have harsh chemicals in them like formaldehyde. The Brazilian Blowout does NOT have formaldehyde in it. And none of the chemicals in it are carcinogenic.
The Brazilian Blowout will last for weeks. The Brazilian Blowout is a cumulative treatment, in that the more you receive it, the healthier the hair will be and the longer the result will last.
It's relatively simple compared to other Brazilian straighteners and Japanese straightening methods. The hair is washed with a clarifying shampoo, solution is applied, the hair is dried, I flat iron the hair to seal in the solution, rinse the solution out, apply a conditioning mask and blow dry. The entire treatment takes 1 to 1 1/2 hours, depending on how much hair the client has.
It's safe for all hair types, even fine, brittle, damaged. In fact, the more damaged hair will often have the most dramatic results.
I really want my hair to grow but i want it to be healthy even more how can i achieve those results?
I am jamaican well u can basically say black and i relax my hair i know my hair cant be 100 percent healthy because i relax it. But i`m trying to grow it out, but most importantly trying to make it as healthy as possible. I do hot oil treatments(one is in my hair as we speak i did a coconut oil treatment), I deep condition every time i was my hair which is once a week. i invested in salon products, i going to invest in Omega 3 vitamins because i went to rite aid and i asked the pharmacists what vitamin is good to take for hair growth and he said vitamin a,and vitamin e. he also said that omega 3 would be good because that`s what our body lacks and needs so i purchased that. and i`m going to see how that turns out. but after i`m going to get vitamin e oil to rub on my scalp and ends.............so what do u guys think what else can i do to make my hair as healthy as it can be being relaxed and i do get regular trims and i just invested in a professional flat iron which is the herstyler Ceramic flat iron which is 100 percent ceramic. and also does peppermint oil open up your pores so your hair can grow and i noticed that when i didn`t use heat on my hair i always use a heat protector but when i didn`t use heat my hair was really healthy but i need to use heat on my hair, it isn`t a option maybe i should get a professional heat protector right what do u think? sorry for the long detailing just want to make sure that u guys know exactly what i do with my hair;)
Frequently get a trim to make room for new growth to take over. Sorry for bursting your balloons, but eating anything made by MAN is not healthy. I don't recommend it. The relaxers alone (is not healthy, it contains formaldehyde causing cancer) the FDA don't approve of keratin, nor they do they approve of supplements.
Ex. of one relaxer: http://monicabtheorganicstylist.wordpress.com/tag/hair-relaxers/
A hairstylist in Portland, Or. is blowing a whistle on the treatment.
"A big red flag: About a month after she started using Brazilian Blowout on clients, Scrutton had the first nosebleed of her life."
(Type it in if they moved the page. "After hairstylist becomes suspicious of Brazilian Blowout, tests find formaldehyde".
Using hair straightener, no matter what brand, price you paid for is another example of why hair does not grow normally. I've responded many experienced in hair loss.
They are doing the body more harm than good - MSN
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/16655168/wid… People spend billion per year on vitamins and supplements. According to Everyday Health, here's an article that will tell you why . . . those PRODUCTS by any other name do NOT WORK. It is false advertisements.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn’t have to approve supplements — no agency in the United States does. So it’s up to consumers to bring health concerns to light. “It’s important to understand the difference between over-the-counter medications and dietary supplements,” say Pieter Cohen, MD, an internist at Cambridge Health Alliance and instructor at Harvard Medical School in Cambridge, Mass. The FDA gets involved only after the fact, if the supplement later appears to be causing harm. By that time, the supplement may already have harmed many consumers who used it.
Google: "Foods for Healthy Hair" - the website had moved, type it in. Two others also:
Fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains all supply B-complex vitamins, like biotin, folic acid and vitamin B12, as well as vitamin A, copper and zinc, which are all necessary for remedying dry, brittle hair and nourishing a healthy scalp. Some prime examples of foods that contain these nutrients for healthy hair include:
· Folic Acid - asparagus, beets, broccoli, avocados, Brussels sprouts, beans, chickpeas, soybeans, lentils, oranges, fresh peas, turkey and spinach.
· Biotin - cauliflower, liver, salmon, carrots, bananas, cereals, yeast, and soy flour. Keep in mind that biotin content is reduced when food is cooked or preserved.
· Vitamin B12 - foods rich in vitamin B12 include animal protein (such as beef, lamb, and veal), clams and oysters, liver, fish, milk, and egg yolks.
· Vitamin A - butter, egg yolks, fish, fortified milk, organ meats (such as
liver), and dark green, orange, red, and yellow fruits (persimmons) and vegetables, which all
. Copper - oysters and other shellfish, whole grains, beans, nuts, potatoes and organ meats are good sources of copper. Dark leafy greens, dried fruits such
as prunes, cocoa, black pepper, and yeast are also sources of copper in the diet.
• Zinc – beef, eggs, liver, pork, poultry, and oysters. Also is also abundant in other high-protein foods, like cheese, legumes and nuts.
If having a lush, beautiful mane of healthy hair is important to you, don’t just look to hot oil treatments and shine emollients. Eat these foods for healthy hair and say “bye-bye” to bad hair days.
I know hair. I have 4 decades of hair know-how. I have silky, shiny, soft, smooth very healthy hair down to my knees. Previously damaged by perming & dyeing in the 80's & 90's. I've known people in their 30's whose hair stopped growing from ironing their hair in the 70's.

the difference between curly and straight hair is the shapem of the hair. straight hair is round and the flatter the hair the curlier
Seven Ways to Straight Hair
1. Hairdressings & Silicone Creams. This is a classic hair product based on oily materials like petrolatum, mineral oil, and lanolin. Silicone creams work the same way but contain materials like dimethicone or cyclomethicone. Apply the product all over your damp hair and comb straight. The oils coat your hairs preventing them from curling up when they dry. The most famous of these types of products is VO5 Hairdressing.
Evaluation: Incredibly effective on all types of hair. Non-damaging and relatively inexpensive. The downside is that your hair will feel greasy, get dirtier faster, and can look weighed down. The effect will last until you wash out the product.
2. Brushing and blow drying. As hair dries, it tends to curl up. This is a direct result of the water content and the chemical bonds existing in the hair fiber proteins. If you can hold your hair straight with a comb and blow dry it, it will hold that position. It’s a bit like using an iron to straighten the wrinkles in clothes.
Evaluation: This method is simple, moderately effective but depends heavily on the skill of the person doing it. It’s much easier for a stylist to do than for you to do it on your own hair. It is slightly damaging, will not work on extremely curly hair, and frizzes out in humid weather. It will leave your hair feeling more natural than hairdressings or styling products. So, if you don’t want to spend much money, get a good hair dryer and trying combing out those curls. It may take some time but it should work.
3. Flat Iron. If you have really curly hair and the blow-drying + combing method doesn’t work, try using a flat iron. After washing your hair, you comb it and use a flat iron to get it dry and straight. It uses the same principle to get your hair straight but it is more intense and effective on nearly all hair types. Here’s a short video showing how to straighten hair with a flat iron.
Evaluation: Flat irons will work with almost any hair type. If you know what you’re doing it can be done relatively quickly. Unfortunately, it is more damaging to your hair than a blow dryer and will frizz out when humidity is high. Once you’ve bought your flat iron it’s a relatively inexpensive way to get a straight hair style.
4. Styling products. If you don’t like the greasy feeling of hairdressings and don’t want to take the time required for flat ironing, then styling product straightening might be for you. These products coat the hair with polymers that rigidly hold the hair straight. Things like hairsprays, gels, mousses, and putties can all be used.
Evaluation: Styling products are effective but require some skill in applying and shaping your hair. They will hold the hair straight better than the blow drying or flat iron methods. The effect will last only until the products are washed out. The primary downside is that your hair may not look and feel natural.
5. Brazilian Hair straightening. This method is the hottest new hair styling treatment in salons. It even made it into a story in the New York Times. Your stylist applies a keratin protein formula and uses a flat iron to get your hair straight. Theoretically, the protein will crystalize on your hair and keep it in a straightened state. You are then encouraged not to wash your hair as frequently because you’ll reverse the effect.
Evaluation: This procedure works but at 0 it hardly seems worth it. If you wash your hair a few times the protein will come right off and your hair will return to it’s natural, curly state. There’s also the issue of a significant amount of Formaldehyde being included in the formula. It shouldn’t be a problem for you but I certainly wouldn’t want to be the stylist who gets exposed many times a day. This procedure works but you can get the same effect using a flat iron, styling products and less frequent hair washing.
6. Japanese straightening system. This is a more permanent way to remove the curls from your hair. At >0 per treatment, it is the most expensive of all the methods outlined here. For the Japanese straightening system the stylist applies a special formula all over the hair. Then they use a flat iron and neutralizing solution to get the hair straight. With proper care the effect should last for 6 months.
Evaluation: The high price of this procedure has kept most people away from repeat procedures. While we haven’t been able to see the exact formula the description of how it’s applied sounds suspiciously like a hair relaxer. The fact that a neutralizing solution has to be used suggests a bond-breaking, chemical reaction. Kudos to the inventor for convincing people to spend that much money on a less harsh version of a hair relaxer. This procedure will permanently get rid of those curls but it’s expensive and incredibly damaging to your hair.
