Nowadays you hear a lot about keratin, but what is it really, what does it do and how do you maintain it because there are many fables doing the rounds and half you have to take with a pinch of salt.
Keratin is a protein that is already naturally present in your hair, nails and skin, it is actually a building block that provides flexibility such as in your hair and skin as well as the strength and strength of your nails.
Keratin protects and repairs our hair and our skin and nails. That is why it is often added to professional hair and care products.
Natural hair consists of 95% keratin, but the amount decreases if you intensively dry or style your hair with the curling iron or straightner. Another culprit that removes the keratin from the hair are the chemical treatments such as color, meches and balayages.
So a keratin treatment will replace the lost protein, so that your hair will become soft again, perfectly modeled and shiny.
Now that many people think that Keratin is meant to smoothen your hair but that is not, because keratin is only a hair improvement and not a smoother, if you have a keratin treatment with smoothing function then it is because there is an extra product attached, because the keratin in both products remains the same.
This means that if you use this keratin, your hair looks after and gives a shine, while maintaining your natural stroke or curl. You can therefore assume that keratin is safe for your hair because it is a body-specific substance and you can use it with any hair type and under all circumstances.
Is your hair extreme piece (snotty) and you actually have to cut it then you can use the KHS Repair kit, use 1 x and your hair is just new back.

Most products that also smooth the hair are now formaldehyde free and this is clearly stated on the package.
Keratin treatments are often offered as straightening treatment to straighten stiff and fluffy hair. This is wrong, because keratin does nothing but restore damaged hair. after the treatment it is much easier to style hair.
The keratin treatments nourish your hair naturally and do not add any chemicals. The treatment lasts between 1.5 and 3 hours, depending on the length and thickness of your hair.
The after-treatment is also important as it ensures that the keratin stays in your hair for a few months instead of a few weeks.
What you have to pay attention to is that they are Sodiun free and no different, it is the Sodium that pulls the keratin back from the hair, there are not many shampoos that are really free of sodium.
