The reign of the Brazilian smoothing seems to have come to an end. When it broke out fifteen years ago, it was devastating, but it also wreaked havoc with some manes, because it incorporated formaldehyde (highly toxic).
Soon this was banned by the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and we were able to obtain the smooth board in a healthy way. The problem? For a few, the hair was left licked, without any volume and unnatural. That’s why lately new treatments have emerged that are displacing the classic keratin and these techniques work best for the hairs that have been straightened with some of the best hair straightener available.
Organic Brazilian Straightening (Toxic free)
We talked with one of the owners of a salon specialized in straightening techniques, and she explains, “nowadays the organic ones have nothing to do with the famous Brazilian keratin of the year 2000, they are now formaldehyde-free, they do not damage the hair or the scalp.
The keratin treatment is more straightening than others and indicated for hair with a strong curl, it relaxes it and provides continuous weight. Aquarela Peluqueros explains that organic hair is compatible with any chemical process and can be applied even to pregnant women.
Besides, it is perfect for blondes because “its formulation contains ingredients that eliminate the yellowish tone, tint and provide light”.
