Botox vs Keratin, living in Orlando can be a challenge in choosing the correct one to control your hair and give the best results for your hair.
In the battle to fight frizz, we have in one corner Hair Botox treatment and in the other the ever so trending Keratin treatment.
Keratin treatments fill in the porosity of your hair, as overly-porous hair causes tangles, frizz, and breakage, your hair is made up of keratin, so the treatment is putting the protein back into the hair, which is often lost due to age and chemical services. We here at Shallamar’s only use the best quality products both tested and approved by our expert stylist in Orlando. We choose to use Pure Brazilian keratin products.
These amazing products are formaldehyde-free, a harmful and toxic chemical many considering a keratin treatment are concerned with. We provide two types of Keratin treatments. The first is the traditional Pure Brazilian Keratin treatment which lasts 3 to 4 months. The second is our Keratin Express Blow Out that lasts for 4 to 6 weeks which is perfect for those that want to try Keratin but don’t want the long term commitment. Contrary to belief Keratin treatments won’t make your hair break, but the flat-ironing might. “The hair breakage has nothing to do with the treatments and everything to do with the flat irons that are used to dry and seal the hair afterward,” says New York dermatologist Neil Sadick, MD. “Some stylists may use a flat iron that is way too hot and scorches hair, making it break off.” That is why our hair stylist experts in Orlando hair salon are thoroughly trained on the extensive and intricate care of hair.
A few bonuses to a Keratin treatment is your color will “pop” and look radiant and healthy making your hair grow effortlessly because of this new protective layer. Your hair will not be able to break or have split ends and the result will be longer and healthier hair! Keratin treatments and products are best for thick, curly, frizzy or coarse hair. Because it actually repairs hair, keratin treatments are also good for damaged or chemically treated hair (colored, permed, relaxed, highlighted or bleached). Keratin treatments are not intended for fine, straight or thin hair, but hair care products containing keratin are awesome for these hair types looking to repair damage, fight frizz, and protect strands. Hair treated with keratin treatment becomes naturally straight, frizz free, shiny and smooth and generally more manageable. It shouldn’t become frizzy even when exposed to humid environments found in Florida, but its effect does not last long on chemically treated and porous hair. It is not suitable for super fine, thin or straight hair. Also, Keratin treatment is not recommended for pregnant women, nursing women and for children under 12 years of age.
Now calling out the new revolutionary Hair Botox treatment.
First things first, no it does not have actual Botox in it nor does it involve any needles coming in contact with your scalp. It’s advertised as a more “natural” frizz eliminator and hair straighter than a keratin treatment.
The way that Botox procedure can wind back the clock for your facial wrinkles, Hair Botox can transform hurt and abused hair back to its lustrous, natural form. With this moisture-injecting procedure, your hair will become healthy, radiant and much more manageable. It has a powerful concentrate of active ingredients to battle the over-processed chemicals that leave hair look lifeless and dull. It works upon each strand from root to tip of hair, restoring the damaged cortex and hair cuticles through its ultra-nourishing technology. It is applicable on any hair type. Hair Botox is free of formaldehyde and other harsh chemicals and acts as a deep conditioning treatment which restores the damaged hair by turning it healthy and shiny. Hair Botox also helps with scalp conditions, such as dandruff and psoriasis. Unlike relaxing treatments, this product can give you straight silky hair without breaking their bonds. It contains a rich formula that shoots nutrients into the damaged cortex of the shaft cuticles and restores hair from inside out. Again here at Shallamar’s we only use the best and found the best to be Kashmir.
Kashmir Hair Botox advanced properties penetrate the hair material and make the necessary corrections, which include: (closing spaces in which the protein is lacking). This is the essence of the Botox treatment by allowing hair treated with Kashmir Hair Botox look healthier and full of luster. Vitamins and minerals that are found in Kashmir Hair Botox recharge the hair and restore it from within the hair shaft, the treatment is maintained over time and prolongs the life of the hair. Hair Botox literally reverts your hair back to its healthiest state by plugging up all the holes, repairing internal damage, fixing the tears, and hydrating withered hair. As we age, so does our hair making this an ideal hair treatment for 35 year old women and up with aging hair converting it into healthy and youthful hair.
Hair will produce less Keratin over time and a protein complex is essential for vitality. Hair Botox works through each piece of hair, from root to tip, restoring from the destruction that we wreak upon ourselves. The secret behind Kashmir Hair Botox treatments are the natural microscopic particles, which encourage the absorption of vitamins, antioxidants and proteins into the hair. Hair Botox also works as a great re-constructive treatment as the organic microspheres help minimize hair loss. Hair Botox works on all types of hair! Straight hair, curly hair and any type in between will benefit from this treatment. Everyone deserves manageable hair, and this protein-packed formula delivers noticeable results.
Now let’s summarize….
Both hair treatments have a smoothing effect on hair which significantly decrease styling time nearly in half, so you’ll have more time in your morning to run late. Because salon treatments don’t require FDA approval, you need to do your own due diligence if you want a truly formaldehyde-free service and if you have any concerns Botox is the way to go.
Keratin treatment is not recommended for pregnant or nursing women and children under the age of twelve. The treatment is not intended for super fine, straight or thin hair where Hair Botox is suitable for all hair types. This treatment is aimed at you if you have very fine, dry, colored, bleached, dull, lifeless, or fried hair full of split ends. The treatment is safe enough to use on pregnant women.
Keratin treatment is a better option if you want straight and manageable hair since the keratin treatment straightens hair more than Hair Botox. If you want to bring your hair back to life and diminish the frizz but still keep your waves intact, then Hair Botox is what you need. Hair Botox smooths the curls and makes them much more manageable, but the treatment won’t completely straighten the hair. Also Hair Botox would be a treatment of choice if you want silky-looking, and frizz-free hair, but prefer not to use harsh chemicals.
Some Professional Tips –
If you go swimming, be sure to shampoo you hair with a sulfate free shampoo soon as you are done. Also wet your hair before you start swimming so that the salt water or chlorine does not shock the hair.
You should use sodium-sulfate-free shampoo to help maintain the treatment.
Avoid chemical treatments while the treatment is in as this will remove the Keratin or Botox treatments. It is best to get your chemical treatment such as hair color or highlights before you get the treatment done.
Your hair is what you eat. It is key to have a balanced diet that includes plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. Plus, load up on ample protein (which is what keratin is and the building block of hair) with foods such as eggs, poultry and Greek yogurt as well as iron, which are found in chia seeds and leafy greens like spinach.
Good hair starts in the shower. Condition, every single day. The most important thing I stress is rinse, rinse and rinse. Leaving any residue in the hair will dry it your and make it appear dull and lifeless. In conclusion both treatments offers great benefits. The battle will always continue of botox vs keratin when living in Orlando.
