Applying the Brazilian Blowout for black hair produces great results and Keratin on Black hair makes a much less harmful alternative to traditional relaxing products.
It won’t damage your hair like a relaxer, because instead of effectively killing it, using a Brazilian Blowout on Black Hair nourishes and strengthens in much the same way as a deep conditioner.
The fact that using Keratin for Black Hair leaves it looking naturally straighter and free of frizz is actually a by-product of the conditioning process.
While you may need more than one application for a truly ‘relaxed’ look, the final result is more natural, because Keratin treatments don’t contain the same harsh chemicals as most relaxers.
And if you’re a regular user of relaxers you’ll know how complicated they can be and also the dangers involved in applying them more than once…
Applying a Keratin treatment to Black Hair is simple and straightforward. It’s just like using any deep conditioning product, although it may take a little longer to apply.
Because while you may need more than a single application, for a truly relaxed effect, using a Keratin Straightener on Black Hair is a much kinder solution.
Typically a product like Zene Progress (Brazil’s best selling Keratin Straightening treatment) is applied to damp hair and left on for 48 hours before rinsing off.
The end result is a far more ‘natural’ looking than old fashioned relaxers. Plus, it’s perfect if you’re having problems with breakage or trying to grow your hair out.
In Brazil, where the Keratin Sraightening system began life, and where it’s known as Escova Progressiva, many Black women use these products as a follow up treatment after relaxing.
It’s perfect for keeping new growth straight and for ‘healing’ the damage caused by relaxers, making it perfect if you struggle to grow your hair, or if you want to gradually lose the unnatural look of a relaxer.
Keratin treatments gradually fade over time on all hair types, and it’s the same when you use Keratin on black hair. The first application typically lasts between 6 weeks and 2 months, while successive treatments last longer as the Keratin permeates your hair and is absorbed deeper.
One good way to prolong results is by using Keratin care products, such as Keratin shampoos, conditioners and leave-ins.
