What is keratin?

Keratin is characterized by being a natural protein found in the skin, nails or hair, which can help protect it and give it more vitality. Keratin can be used to smooth the hair, or to repair it, with which we can achieve greater shine and less dryness when nourishing it.

Hair is one of the parts of the body that women invest a lot of time and money in to keep them perfect. They say that the femininity of a woman is reflected by how careful and beautiful her hair is and that is why many subject it to long treatments such as the application of keratin, above all, so that it looks straight and shiny.

Actually the process of applying keratin at home is not so difficult, it is only important to have the right products, and the ideal care and disposition. If you find it very difficult to do it alone, you can always ask for help from a friend or family member, so that they support you especially in the application on the back of the head, which is the most difficult area to work with.

Steps to apply keratin at home

Before starting the whole process, you should make sure you have the product on hand (keratin), unsalted shampoo, applicator brush, gloves (since the product is strong), bottle caps if necessary, comb, dryer and iron. In the market there is a wide variety of keratins, of different brands and types, make sure to buy one that is as natural as possible, and that is dermatologically tested.

  • Step 1. Wash your hair thoroughly with unsalted shampoo and apply the dryer so it’s ready to go. You should separate the hair into sections, they can be 6 or 8, similar to when you are going to apply a dye or dry the hair. Be sure to hold each bun tightly with a sturdy hook.
  • Step 2. You should start applying keratin from the nape of the neck to the fontanelle. Choose a lock of hair and apply the product with the brush, vigorously until it is fully impregnated.
  • Step 3. Each strand of hair that you are impregnating with keratin, you must go ironing it immediately. At this point, perhaps, the proliferation of smoke with the smell of chemical can be a little strong and that is why it is important to use bottle caps. You need to make sure you don’t burn your hair.
  • Step 4. Once you finish applying keratin to the locks of hair, everything must have been totally straight and shiny. You’re likely to feel a greasy feeling, but its part of the nature of keratin.
  • Step 5. Finally, after 7 days of having applied keratin at home, you should wash your hair again with the unsalted shampoo, as at the beginning of the process, and dry and iron as usual.

You should make sure you always use unsalted shampoo in every wash. You can combine hydration with the use of natural or artificial masks. It is also important that you repeat the application of keratin at least every 3 months or when you already observe that your hair is losing its softness as a result of the moisturizing process.
