There are several keratin hair treatments available in the United States. Some have formaldehyde, while others are formaldehyde-free. The goal of the keratin treatment is to fill in the porosity of the hair. This will help to reduce tangles, decrease frizz, and help to avoid breakage. The treatment is best for people with curly or wild hair. There are over-the-counter keratin treatments available, however the quality is not as good. It is best to have a licensed cosmetologist examine your hair, determine what type of keratin treatment works best, and then give you tips on proper shampooing to maintain the results. The natural texture of the hair will return in about 3 months for most people. Keratin treatments can be repeated 2-3 times a year.
