Clarifying Shampoo Prepares Your Hair for a Keratin Blowout
A high quality clarifying or pre-treatment shampoo is as vital to a really good result as the straightening product itself, and we recommend washing your hair twice, with one of our specialist pre-treatment shampoos before application, for the very best results.

The shampoo itself is loaded with extracts of pomegranate, for intense cleaning and Vitamin B5, which also makes BioExtratus QueraVit pre-treatment shampoo ideal for use before any type of straightening or colouring, not just a Keratin Blowout.

>How to Apply Clarifying shampoo
To put it simply, washing with a Clarifying Shampoo, ahead of a Keratin Blowout will make it work better and last longer.
Intended for use immediately before a Keratin treatment like Zene Progress, or Tutanat Progressiva pre-treatment shampoos are applied just like any other shampoo, and left for 5 to 7 minutes before rinsing thoroughly with warm water.
Pre-Keratin treatment Clarifying Shampoos work well with all Keratin straightening systems. They function in two ways, cleaning and stripping your hair of residual products and making it more receptive to Keratin. They greatly enhances the finish you can expect from the treatment.
First, the shampoo’s clarifying action works to thoroughly clean your hair, washing away any lingering product residues and pollutants, which could reduce or even block the results of a Keratin Blowout.
Then, because they contain a nourishing dose of amino acids, they also help your hair absorb more of the straighetning solution when it’s applied, by creating a a type of protein bridge for it to be absorbed.
