Before & After: The Best DIY Keratin Blow Dry Treatments


 

As a natural, the idea of wanting straight hair now and again always sounds like a good idea in your head. And it actually looks good before humidity hits and you remember the exact reason why you never do this. Trust me, we get it. However if, like us at Haircrush, you refuse to accept that as your reality, take a look at these keratin blow dry treatments you can try at home (without that salon price tag) that will actually have you reaching your destination with the same hair style you left the house with.

The Keratin Blow-Dry, also known as a Brazilian Blow-Dry, is a protein treatment designed to give your hair a protective coating while locking in moisture, smoothening the cuticles and reducing frizz.

The process typically involves your hair being washed with a clarifying shampoo, the treatment is then applied, washed out and sealed in with heat from a blow-dry and then straighteners/flat irons.

Depending on your maintenance the treatment can last weeks in your hair then eventually fades out and your hair returns to its natural state. Do bear in mind that of course the results won't be exactly what you'd get at a salon and remember to do your own thorough research beforehand because heat damage is very real.
