The Brazilian Capillary Hair Treatment is a blend of organic acids and conditioning agents (jojoba oil, wheat germ proteins, cocoa extracts, keratin, panthenol and white clay), and able to reduce hair volume in an efficient and long lasting manner. This specific combination of organic substances acts on the natural protein frame in the hair fibre modifying its volume. The treatment also strengthens any natural keratin present in the hair repairing even the most damaged fibres, providing strength and condition from the roots to the tips. The final look is silky, soft and glossy hair with a volume reduction ranging between 70% and 90%.

All the Brazilian Keratins we have in our store are suitable for all hair types except for the Inoar Afro Keratin which is only for afro hair. All the keratins can be applied to coloured, chemically treated, relaxed, bleached, curly, grey and virgin hair.

The Rio Bamboo Organic with Argan Oil and Inoar Afro Brazilian Keratin products are formaldehyde free.
The Inoar and Eternity Liss Brazilian Keratin products do contain formaldehyde and this is within the E.U. legal limit.

All products are safe to use and tested for safety here in the U.K. regardless of any safety testing carried out by the foreign manufacturers.

The difference between the Inoar and Eternity Liss Keratins is very little as they have very similar ingredients, same application process, same result, same manufacturer, just have their own individual fragrance.

Hair can be washed same day with most of the Brazilian keratin Treatments in our store (the Cocochoco being the exception & a 3 day wash out keratin), however we believe there is no need to shampoo the same day as if the application instructions are followed correctly, the immediate result will be beautiful glossy hair. This also gives the keratin even longer to penetrate the hair cuticles.

‘If you want to achieve straighter hair, then iron each hair section the maximum amount times. If you want to maintain curls/wave and achieve glossy deep conditioned frizz free hair, then just reduce the amount of ironing. It is basically how you want your hair to be’.

If hair is not immediately straight after the first application, this will improve after the 2nd or 3rd application and will continue to do so as treatments are repeated. This also depends on how curly, stubborn or how well your hair absorbs the keratin. As treatments are repeated the life of the treatment will begin to last longer and fewer treatments will be required.

The Brazilian keratin treatment lasts up to 3 to 4 months using the right after care (salt free) products and avoidance of salt water such as the rain, sea water etc.There are some Brazilian keratin after care products on the market that do contain sulphate, but some sulphates are more gentle than others and can be used following treatment.To find out if an after care product is safe to use following treatment you would need to check with the manufacturer.

All the shampoos and conditioners in the store are suitable for use following the Brazilian keratin treatment.

Questions and Answers

What is keratin? Keratin is a natural repairing substance which comprises approximately 88% of your hair. It penetrates the hair repairing internal damage & coats the hair cuticle preventing further damage. Keratin is high in sulphur & amino acid cysteine, which provides strength, elastine & insolubility to the hair. These qualities are fundamental to the strong structural role keratin often plays in nature. It is the main protective substance in our hair, skin & nails.

How are our Brazilian keratin treatments different from other Brazilian keratin treatments? They are an advanced method for hair straightening & more superior to other traditional keratin treatments where a three to four day wait was required before being able to wash the hair. Our keratin treatments allow hair to be washed just one hour after completing the treatment. This is a real advancement you’ll not find anywhere else in the world.

Can I apply the Brazilian keratin treatment on damaged hair that has been coloured? Yes, hair will be repaired & transformed to beautiful deep conditioned hair.

How long after the first application should I do the treatment again? You can treat your hair with any of our Brazilian keratin treatments as many times as you wish until the desired straightening effect is achieved.

For how long does straightening effect last after treatment? The straightening effect lasts up to three to four months, depending on how many Brazilian keratin treatments have been applied previously, & also the care you take by using the right aftercare products & avoiding salt water, such as the rain, sea water etc.

How many times do I need to apply the Brazilian keratin treatment for a good straightening effect? The need for more treatments will depend on the hair texture & how much care is provided in maintaining the treatment. As applications are repeated, the longer the treatment lasts resulting in fewer applications will be required.

What is the most common effect achieved after the Brazilian keratin treatment?From the first application you will notice a high degree of straightening effect & hair condition will be superb. The Brazilian keratin repairs, rebuilds & hydrates hair providing a soft & silky effect.
