Dangers and Care of Keratin Treatments

Knowing the possible dangers of a Keratin treatment and how to care for it are all things you need to educate yourself on before you decide to have this therapy done. Some of the after effects of the process range from:
  1. Eye problems including irritation, harm, and blindness.
  2. Nose pain and bloody noses.
  3. Skin sensitivity which may be seen as itchy rashes.
  4. Breathing difficulties like wheezing.
  5. Hair loss can be a problem ranging from losing a small amount to a significant thinning. Reports show that your hair will grow back given time.
Fortunately for you, these issues are largely seen in stylists who work with the products over time. The biggest danger of Keratin treatments is that they contain a small amount of formaldehyde. Some products are advertised as formaldehyde free and they are until they are heated. The chemicals used instead of formaldehyde become formaldehyde when heated to a high temperature. There are some truly formaldehyde free Keratin products, but you need to do the research and look at ingredients. Do not use a product with formalin or methylene glycol. Make sure your chosen salon is not mixing their own formulas, and therefore using too much formaldehyde. Recommendations for care of your hair after a Keratin treatment are as follows:
  1. Avoid high degrees of salt water or chlorine, which are detrimental to your treatment. You should also cover your hair in any situation where your hair will be exposed to high UV amounts.
  2. One of the most destructive things you can do is to use a shampoo or conditioner that contains sodium chloride (salt). Also use sulfate-free shampoo since sulfates are very harsh cleaners.
  3. Your hair need to remain dry for at least 3 days after your treatment.
  4. Using any hair products during that 3 days should be avoided. Use your flat iron if your hair has curled.
  5. Keep your hair down and undone for several days after a Brazilian Keratin treatment.
  6. Normal cotton pillow cases tend to play havoc with hair follicles. Try using a silk pillow case when sleeping.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best product for keratin hair - gentle and worth a little extra $ September 5, 2014 - By Jessica Weiss "People, this is seriously the best product for keratin hair that I've found out there! I've tried a ton of products, and my hair is super dry. These people really care about their product and take the ingredients seriously."

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product ! December 1, 2014 By Kathy B "I have keratin treatment applied professionally. And as part of treatment is shampoo and conditioner recommended by Keratin Mfg. Your product is soooo much better. Even tho it's been 4 mths since the treatment, your shampoo and conditioner leaves my hair feeling like I just had the treatment. So soft and silky."

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Keratin treated hair! January 15, 2015 - By June Cohler "jc" "Just had a Keratin straightening treatment and googled the best shampoos to use. Bought the Vizeri shampoo and conditioner and so far am extremely satisfied. My hair is shiny, silky and smooth."

5.0 out of 5 stars It's excellent after keratin treatment or even without! April 26, 2014 - By Anastasiia "I'd bought those shampoo and conditioner to use as hair care after the keratin treatment. First I've tried them before I went to the salon and it works even without any additional hair care. My hair became so smooth and shiny! I would recommend it!"

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Product, Instant Softness... wish there was more for the buck December 27, 2014 - By Mel "Previous to this purchase I was using the Keratin Complex line for my hair as I do have my hair treated with keratin. I can honestly say this product has definitely been an upgrade as from my first use my hair felt much softer and much easier to manage. I haven't had it long enough to see if it will help with the brittleness of my hair but I am definitely happy with the soft results thus far. The smell is nice, it reminds me of an orange creamsicle which is not the usual clean smelling shampoo I like, but its nice. My only complaint is the small bottles it comes in, I thought I would be getting a little more for the buck. I will definitely continue to purchase this line though." "Really is a great shampoo/conditioner. Scent is citrusy. Great for hair treated with keratin."

4.0 out of 5 stars Love the Vizeri November 28, 2014 - By Janie "I had a keratin treatment a while ago and was told to use sulfate and sodium free shampoo to keep the keratin in. There are not many shampoos out there that are both sodium and sulfate free. Most are either one or the other. I found a couple. Was not thrilled with any of them, so kept looking. When I looked on Amazon for one, up came Vizeri so I gave it a try. The first time I used it I wasn't sure about it because it almost seemed to make my hair very dry but I couldn't understand because so many people were saying how great it was. I gave it another try in a couple of weeks. The next time I tried it I loved it and then every time after I loved the results. It left my hair manageable and soft but not to soft and a very interesting thing was that I felt like my hair stayed cleaner longer. I am not sure what happend the first time but I must say if anyone tries it and doesn't like the result."

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Duo November 26, 2014 - By EB2120 "I recently had a keratin smoothing treatment and needed to find a shampoo and conditioner without sulfates or sodium chloride. This looked like the perfect choice to me. At first, it’s a little odd to use because there is minimal sudsing like I’m used to. But it does an excellent job at cleaning your hair and leaving it nice and hydrated. To my surprise it completely got rid of my dandruff, which I’ve always been very self conscience of. I very highly recommend these products."

4.0 out of 5 stars For me these smelled like an orange creamsicle October 15, 2014 - By Alexandra Poulos "I ordered this shampoo/conditioner combo with Amazon Prime in a slightly desperate situation. Had just splurged on a Keratin Express treatment at the salon and did not realize that afterwards would have to use hair products without sulfates and sodium chloride. The smell of shampoos/conditioners is really important to me for some reason- I think I have a sensitive nose. For me these smelled like an orange creamsicle. Not necessarily a bad thing, just somewhat unexpected. That being said, I did like the way my hair felt after using these products. Soft and definitely less frizz for my hair. It's a little hard to say how much of this is due to my Keratin treatment (was my first time having one) but I think I would keep using this sulfate free stuff even after the Keratin wears off."

5.0 out of 5 stars Great shampoo for Brazilian / Keratin Straightening June 25, 2014 - By LoriO (New Canaan, CT United States) "I just tried it once and then packed both for a trip to France. On this try I like the shampoo and conditioner. I have a Brazilian straightening and am careful which shampoo to use but your shampoo cleaned my hair well and it was nice and shiny when dry. Thank you."

5.0 out of 5 stars Vizeri is a Hair Miracle Cure!!!!!! August 13, 2014 - By Laurie Coghlan "First of all, let me say, I DO NOT rate products, give critiques, etc…. However; that being said, I am making an exception to my rule. Your product is AMAZING! My stylist lectures me constantly because I wash/blow dry/flat iron and constantly brush my hair on a daily basis. My hair is very thick, but very fine. It is also very brittle and dried out from all of the above, along with coloring. I have frizzies galore in my hair…Or, should I say, I did until using your product. I just use the shampoo and conditioner, do not add a smoothing product as I had to before. My brush just flows through my wet hair, which is completely tangle-free (that’s never happened before). In addition, it seems that your product has cut my drying time in half. My hair doesn’t seem to hold the water as much as it did before. I would and will give your product 10 out of 10 stars!!! I do, however, have 1 complaint: Is the 8 oz. bottle the largest bottle you have for sale? I am continuing to wash my hair every day, and your product (even though I use very little) will not last me long at that rate. If you don’t sell anything larger, perhaps you should start with me, as I DO NOT want to run out of this amazing shampoo and conditioner. My hair looks the same as it did when I had a keratin treatment – smooth, shiny, soft, (I don’t even have to flat iron most of the time) and not breaking as it was before…. And I love the smell!""

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful silky smooth hair May 20, 2014 - By Ozwald "I have been very happy with the use of the Vizeri shampoo and conditioner. As a follow-up to my keratin treatment I truly believe this has been the best product that I could have used. Did notice just this week that sometimes shampooing twice before using conditioner made my hair "feel" like I was getting it cleaner. Created more suds with second shampoo. Physically combing through the conditioner before rinsing also worked wonders. Wonderful product. Will definitely buy more. Thanks for such wonderful customer service too."

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Shampoo and Conditioner Combo May 12, 2014 - By Usha "Am very happy with the shampoo and conditioner. It really helps maintain my keratin treatment for a longer period. My hair appears in control and ease of frizz after use" 5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product! May 7, 2014 - By Holly H. "I'm totally impressed with this product and with the level of customer service. Their concern for my satisfaction is top notch. I've received two personal emails directly from the company and I'm impressed with their personal touch. I'm very pleased with the shampoo and conditioner. I have keratin treated hair and have been using Coppola shampoo/conditioner for a few years. This is the first time I've tried another brand and I will be a repeat customer. I like the fragrance and it works well with my fine hair. I would like the option to purchase the 33 oz size for both and I don't believe I saw that size on Amazon. But other than that, I'm very pleased and will order again."

5.0 out of 5 stars One of a Kind Product February 10, 2014 - By Lisa "My hair is very manageable and the products are very gentle. I have seen that my color and my Brazilian keratin treatment have stayed very well this last week or so, which usually isn't the case with other products. There is little to nothing on the market that is sulfate, sodium chloride, and paraben free, while not testing on animals and having smoothing ingredients in them (like argan oil), so your product is truly one of a kind. Plus, it smells great! One suggestion: 1. Can you please make bigger sizes? I realize a little goes a long way, but I will still go through that small bottle in a matter of a couple of weeks. I also loved that the owner actually sent me a personal email asking my feedback and thanking me for purchasing! I am a TOUGH critic, and I will definitely continue to purchase."

5.0 out of 5 stars Best shampoo and conditioner! February 10, 2014 - By bleberry "Smells great hair is soft and shiny. I use after keratin treatment with no problems. Also cruelty free! Will keep using."
