“The results were so spectacular, she wept,” reads an article in New York Times about a woman who received a Brazilian Keratin hair treatment. “Such a gushing testimonial is not unusual” the article goes on to say.
The hair treatment, pioneered in Brazil, uses active keratin, a protein akin to a component of human hair. It yields results that are undoubtedly pretty spectacular. Keratin treated hair is sleeker, straighter, shinier and lasts up to a month. We’re sold on the concept, but not so much on the $250-per-application salon bill.
So, when we heard that nuNAAT released a kit which provides you with everything you need to do your own Keratin hair treatment at home, we wanted to know the straight dope.
The kit retails for $24.95 and includes shampoo, gloss and conditioner. The formula is derived from “soybean, corn and wheat that are bio-compatible with hair fibers, allowing for the temporary change in hair structure,” according to the company.
“Very curly hair will become smoother, while naturally straight hair will appear healthier and shinier. Extremely coarse hair types will see a reduction in frizz and curl.” says the manufacturer.
