Brazilian Keratin Treatment ™ . . a revolutionary process that repairs damaged hair to leave it soft, shiny and frizz free for up to 4 months.
The Brazilian Keratin Treatment ™ is:
- Quick – On average, the treatment takes one stylist 1 ½ to 2 ½ hours depending on the length, thickness and texture of the hair.
- Brazilian Blow Out – Brazilian Blowout can be shampooed right away, or it is recommended to wait 24hrs after treatment to shampoo and condition hair.
- Recommended – All Keratin treatments perform best when used with brand recommended shampoo and conditioners and hair mask and serum. This helps the keratin treatment last up to 4 months.
- Affordable – It brings the price of silky straight hair to a reasonable level, expanding your customer base while remaining an upscale process.
- Universal – It can be used on dyed or highlighted hair. In fact, it can be used on any type of hair. It can be done on the same day as any color treatment.
- Gentle – It is NOT meant to be permanent and it DOES NOT require neutralizer or immediate rinse. It requires redoing approximately every 3 to 4 months. That is why you can leave it on the client’s hair and walk away if you have to. That is why you can use it on children. That is why it blends with the natural growth of hair.
- Natural – It does NOT use strong chemicals to open and close the hair cuticle in an effort to straighten it, “breaking the bonds” of the hair shaft. Keratin is a natural substance, which comprises approximately 88% of your hair.
- Healthy – It penetrates the hair repairing internal damage and coats the hair preventing further damage. The results are SOFT, SHINY, STRAIGHT hair.
- Easy – Begin with a shampoo designed to open the cuticle. Saturate the hair with the product (an average of 3 ounces). Blow dry. Iron small sections of hair close to the scalp with a low heat flat iron, ironing the entire head to seal the keratin into the cuticle.
- Simple – Do NOT wet, wash or use any clips or pins (or anything) on your hair for 2 days. After the second day, shampoo and condition your hair with products free of sodium chloride and sulfates, which will strip the keratin from the hair. Our specially formulated line of shampoos and conditioners are the best available for maintaining the most long-term results.
- Simply Amazing – The results speak for themselves. As one client said: “I’m so happy I don’t need my therapist anymore!”• Good for anyone who has hair.
WHAT IS IT?
Keratin is a type of protein high in the amino acid “Cystine.” This special amino acid is what makes hair super tough and extremely elastic. Scientists refer to Keratin as a “Biopolymer,” due to its unique structures and interesting properties. Biopolymers are found throughout nature and give form and structure to naturally occurring substances all around the world; everything from leaves to trees, and turtle shells to goose down. Keratin is a classic example of a Biopolymer and it is the main structure building protein in our hair and nails. Some of the kinds or brands that are used are Brazilian Blowout, BB Zero, Mareia Tiexiera, Global Keratin, Beox and Copolla.
Useful keratin extracts have been long sought after as highly prized cosmetic ingredients. Until recently, high quality keratin extracts were impossible to find on a commercial scale. We utilize a patented process called Keratec® to carefully separate the Keratin from wool, while maintaining its quality…an extremely difficult task to do properly.
The wool is harvested each spring when New Zealand sheep are sheared. This causes absolutely no harm to the sheep that are probably happy to be rid of their heavy winter wool coats before the coming summer heat. We use only pure and natural wool, straight from the farms. New Zealand sheep’ wool is considered to be amongst the very finest in the world and absolutely free from BSE or anything else that would be potentially harmful.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
When it comes to keratin, its extreme toughness is the key. Keratin’s durability and strength protect and improve the hair both inside and out. Our unique biopolymer ingredient is virtually a “liquid form of hair” that gently blends with the hair on your head to help restore what has been lost over time and through environmental stresses.
What’s the unique benefit to this ingredient? The small size of the Keratin Biopolymer molecules penetrate under the hair’s cuticle and seep into the inner hair shaft, helping to improve the quality of the hair from the inside. The Keratin fills in the gaps between the cuticle and the inner hair shaft and becomes sealed into the hair’s inner structure by the high heat flat iron. As you will soon learn, the Keratin Biopolymer works with other ingredients in the product to help eliminate the frizz and add strength and elasticity.

A Brazilian Keratin treatment varies from Brazilian Blowout to Advanced Extreme Brazilian Keratin Treatments. These different types of Brazilian keratin treatments vary on strength, types, and price. We do consultations to determine which one will be best for you.
Example: Brazilian Blowout is more of an express Brazilian keratin type treatment; can take 1 to 2 hours. Last up to 6 to 12 weeks, and is an intro to the Brazilian keratin family. The Advanced Extreme Brazilian Keratin treatment is the highest form and the strongest form of Brazilian keratin treatment. It can take anywhere from 3 hours to 5 hours to perform. This glycolic acid-derivative, which is traditionally used to perm hair, is relatively mild compared with the chemicals in conventional straighteners – for instance, it’s too weak to work on African-American hair. Then, instead of a traditional blow dry, hair is clamped between small irons and heated as high as 356 degrees (or higher in some cases) Fahrenheit to realign the bonds in stick-straight formation. This is the thermal part of Thermal Reconditioning. Despite it’s strong chemicals, the process can be less damaging than regular, strenuous, blow-drying, according to experts.
It changes lives. Everyone who tries thermal reconditioning raves about the results. It’s made early morning wrestling sessions with hair-dryers and straightening irons a thing of the past. Hot and humid weather has no effect.

The end result is smooth, healthy, conditioned hair with radiant shine and you can shampoo in just 24 hours.
