Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is KERARGANIC® FORMALDEHYDE FREE ORGANIC KERATIN SYSTEM?
KERARGANIC® FORMALDEHYDE FREE ORGANIC KERATIN SYSTEM is the new generation in hair therapy, a.k.a., Brazilian keratin treatment, Brazilian straightening, intelligent brushing, progressive brushing. With the difference that it does not contain formaldehyde, formalin, aldehyde, ammonia, thioglycolates etcâ€¦so it does not release toxic fumes or nasty odors, and it does not sting the eyes or dries the throat.
2- If it does not contain formaldehyde, what seals the keratin treatment and makes the hair straight?
In our KERARGANIC® FORMALDEHYDE FREE ORGANIC KERATIN SYSTEM formaldehyde has been replaced by an organic complex of oxoacetamide carbocysteine and oxoacetamide amino acids, which are thermally-activated when the hair is blow-dried and the straightening iron is applied. Thus the keratin treatment is sealed into the hair shaft and the straightening effect is produced.
3- If KERARGANIC® FORMALDEHYDE FREE ORGANIC KERATIN SYSTEM does not contain formaldehyde, aldehydes, ammonia or any other harsh chemicals, can it be used on women who are pregnant and/or breast feeding?
It most certainly can! Our KERARGANIC® FORMALDEHYDE FREE ORGANIC KERATIN SYSTEM is just as safe to use as any household hair products. The difference is that it requires professional expertise for the application process so that optimum results are attained.
4- Is it necessary to wait 72 hours to wash the hair after the treatment?
Absolutely NOT! That's something of the past, of the old generation of keratin treatment. With our new generation of hair therapy, the hair is washed 20 minutes after the treatment!
5- How long does the treatment last?
Three months or more, depending on the condition of the hair, on how well the treatment was done, on how well the hair is maintained after the treatment, on the number of washes and on the quality of the products used to wash and condition the hair. For longer duration, we strongly recommend the regular use of our KERARGANIC Maintenance products, which are especially formulated to prolong the treatment and the straightening effect.
