Those complaining of having frizzy hair are now indeed letting out a sigh of relief, at the launch of keratin hair treatment. However, the cost is a matter of concern for many, as not everyone finds it wise to spend their hard-earned money on such treatments. Keratin hair treatment is a hair treatment that claims to naturally straighten the hair. Those who undertake this treatment also take a risk; as after the procedure one must follow a list of dos and don'ts, and if not followed properly, your money goes down the drain, making the cost unreasonable.
It, in fact, can damage the hair if the treatment does not respond well. I don't mean to sound depressing and neither am I trying to stop those who wish to go for this treatment, my only request and advice is not to take a hasty decision and spend a huge amount of money without doing extensive research.
It is not just about the cost, but also about the fact that many who have carried out this treatment suffer from terrible hair problems which strangely never existed until after the treatment. This treatment is not suitable to all, as it causes many side effects, and some of the side effects include excessive hair fall, eye irritation, and lung irritation. I am a firm believer that something that enhances your beauty and personality in a natural way should only be encouraged and carried out without any second thoughts. So, go for it, but only if it is worth it, and only if you are aware of the dangers other than the always talked about benefits.
What is Keratin Hair Treatment?
Keratin is a protein that is naturally present in the hair, but with time and frequent use of chemicals, in the form of shampoos, conditioners and hair colors, keratin depletes. As it depletes, the hair looks undernourished and frizzy. Keratin hair smoothing treatment involves the use of this protein obtained from sheep's hair. The keratin solution, that includes formaldehyde, is applied to the hair, and then it is straightened using a flat iron. After the procedure, one needs to follow specific hair care tips; for the treatment to be more effective provide expected results.
The cost is not fixed as such and depends on various factors such as the texture, length, and volume of the hair. Brazilian treatment cost ranges between USD 250-USD 500 dollars; the average being USD 300. The cost depends on the time that the whole procedure takes; long hair might demand more time as compared to short or medium hair, and thus, may cost more.
Besides the treatment, money also goes in purchasing aftercare hair products such as shampoos, conditioners, and a blow dry kit, to get better results after the treatment. It is important to check the reviews to get the right cost of this hair straightening treatment. Also, the treatment only lasts for about 10 to 12 weeks, after which it needs to be repeated.
Keratin hair treatment seems to be worth the effort, and is not highly priced when compared to Japanese hair straightening treatment. Also, the hair holds its natural look, and does not get a stick-like appearance after the treatment, and grows evenly.
