Keratin for hair: myths and reality

However, opinions about this method of «treatment» of hair are very different, try to understand why.

Keratin, what is it?

Human hair is almost 90% protein, or in other words, protein. As keratin is one of its varieties, is produced by our body. But it should be understood that the form of the protein, produced by industry, significantly different from the natural.

Choosing a cosmetic containing «building material» for the hair, pay special attention to the study of its composition, for example the official website of GKhair contains all the necessary information on the composition of their products. One type of protein, whether it’s a keratin or collagen should not be listed at the end of the list, and somewhere in the middle.

To date, variations of keratin straightening there are many is and treatment, and prosthetics, and blowout. Although in fact it is all the same with little variation components. Initially this procedure was intended for African-American and Asian women with hard, unruly hair. But gradually it began to be used by all.
