The range of hairdressing and styling products available in the shops today is huge. This industry is subject to constant developments and innovations and one of the most recent of these is the use of keratin in hair products. But what is keratin?
Keratin is a family of fibrous structural proteins and can be found in the outer layer of human skin as well as in reptiles, birds, amphibians and mammals. Keratin is NOT to be confused with carotene, the pigment that makes carrots orange; so don’t put it on your hair unless you’re after a head of ginger locks. Here are 5 of the best keratin (not carotene!) hair products:
1) Restorative hair infusion
This is a protective serum that you can use to repair damaged hair. This infusion has nourishing oils within it which permeate into the hair and create a silky, shiny surface when sealed in with a flat iron.
2) Keratin smoothing system
This product helps you smooth and straighten your hair. This particular keratin hair treatment gives a sheen to your hair and removes unwanted dryness and frizz.
3) Smoothing and hydrating shampoo
Lots of shampoos contain damaging chemicals but keratin smoothing and hydrating shampoos are sulphate-free and paraben-free, so are gentle but effective on your hair.
4) Curl calming balm
Despite the name of this product the keratin curl calming balm can be used to decrease or increase the curliness of your locks so you can choose to have bouncy curls or smooth straight hair.
5) Smoothing and hydrating treatment
This treatment deeply conditions your hair, detangling it and gently straightening it, while injecting it with vital moisture.
If you are still searching for the perfect products to give you a head of flowing locks, why not choose a keratin hair treatment? The substance is found naturally in hair so what better ingredient for a hair product.
