Brazilian hair straightening

Brazilian hair straightening

Brazilian hair straightening is known as a very effective hair straightening, yet there are a lot of disagreements about it. This is a hair straightening treatment which until a few years ago was the most sought-after straightening method due to its good results. In this method, a compound containing keratin is inserted into the hair and then a hair straightener is used that causes the hairs to straighten perfectly.

In recent years, however, there has been a growing awareness of the safety of the materials used to perform hair straightening, with one of the substances found to be dangerous to use being formaldehyde / formalin.

Brazilian straightening is suitable for almost all hair types: thin, dry, cracked, light or lightened hair and has dyed hair. The compound of the ingredients used for Brazilian straightening contains keratin and therefore Brazilian straightening is also used as a treatment to restore the appearance of the hair and restore shine and moisture.
