Global Keratin,Global Keratin treatment,global keratin hair,global keratin products

There is so much talk about Global Keratin treatments for straightening. It is almost like a miracle drug that helps take the frizz and curls out of your hair for up to 5 months! We know all of you have questions on various keratin treatments and have decided to profile the Global Keratin with Juvexin today.

The Global Keratin Treatment with Juvexin is formulated to straighten the hair and leave it shiny, silky and manageable. The Global Keratin treatment is specifically formulated as a revitalizing and rejuvenating Keratin treatment that eliminates frizz and curls (similar to the Brazilian Treatment). Global Keratin includes Juvexin. What is Juvexin you ask? It is a naturally derived protein similar to the structure of hair, which bonds to the surface and penetrates strands. Sounds Great!

So what is the deal with Formaldehyde and Global Keratin treatments? I know many of you are concerned with putting Formaldehyde in your hair. I found that Global Keratin has 3 different versions of their treatment according to your hair type which is genius!

  • Wavy Hair, Formaldehyde Free!!
  • Curly Hair, 2% Formaldehyde
  • Coarse, Extremely Curly Hair, 4% Formaldehyde

The Global Keratin also comes in Strawberry, Chocolate, and Acai. Just different scents. How fun! We posed some questions to Global Keratin and found out much more about the treatment. Read on.

Q. What is JUVEXIN?
A. JUVEXIN is the ONLY keratin compound scientifically proven to protect and restore hair back to its youthful state.

Q. Why is JUVEXIN different than other keratins?
A. Other products in the market today are made with hydrolyzed or over processed keratin where the long chains of amino acids are broken and the capability of the protein to bind to the hairs natural keratin is destroyed.

Q. Is this a relaxer?
A. No. Global Keratin’s Hair Taming System with JUVEXIN is a system that restores hair to its pristine condition. It does not change the genetic make up of hair. Rather, it makes hair more manageable, easy to style and frizz-free.

Q. Do I always have to wear my hair straight or can I style my hair?
A. After the first wash you can style your hair in any manner you desire. Since the Global Keratin Hair Taming System with JUVEXIN does not change the structural integrity of your hair, your hair will hold any style like before the application.

Q. Does the Hair Taming System work on virgin hair?
A. Yes. The Global Keratin Hair Taming System with JUVEXIN will provide excellent results on any hair type. On virgin hair, best results will be achieved after the second or third application.

Q. Can the Hair Taming System be done on any type of damaged hair?
A. Yes, the Global Keratin Hair Taming System with JUVEXIN treatment can be applied on ANY previous chemical treatment (colored, highlighted, relaxed, bleached or virgin hair).

Q. Can you do the Hair Taming System over the Japanese straightening?
A. Yes, the Global Keratin Hair Taming System with JUVEXIN can be applied over any kind of permanent straightening.

Q. Is it best to apply the Hair Taming System before or after coloring?
A. For optimal results, color/highlighting processes should be done before applying the Global Keratin Hair Taming System with JUVEXIN. In addition, both procedures may be done on the same visit. Otherwise, wait 2 weeks after the treatment application to apply color/highlights.

Q. How do I apply the Hair Taming System with Juvexin after color?

A. After you have finished applying the color treatment to your customer’s hair, thoroughly rinse the hair as usual until the water runs clear. Then wash the hair lightly with Global Keratin Clarifying Shampoo to remove the excess color build up. Thoroughly rinse the hair after the Clarifying Shampoo. Apply the Hair Taming System with Juvexin right over the color as you would normally do.

Q. Can the Hair Taming System be done on children?
A. Most pediatricians recommend that children be at least 12 years old before they receive any kind of cosmetic treatments.

Q. Why do I have to wait to wash my hair?
A. We recommend that you wait because it takes 48 hours for the JUVEXIN to form a stronger bond to the hair cortex. If hair is washed right after the treatment, some or most of the Juvexin may wash out and the results of the application will not last as long as desired.

Q. Can I wear a ponytail or tie the hair up?
A. No, during the first 48 hours following the application the hair should not be tied up with any bands or clips.

Q. What should I do if I create a bend in my hair while sleeping?
A. Blow dry the section of hair as soon as possible and/or use a flat iron to re-straighten the hair.

A. Blow dry the section of hair as soon as possible and/or use a flat iron to re-seal the cuticle.

Q. How long does the Hair Taming System last?

Q. What shampoo and conditioners do I use after receiving the Hair Taming System?
A. To maintain the results and make the treatment last longer we recommend that you only use Global Keratin Hair Taming System with JUVEXIN shampoos and conditioners.

Q. Can I use styling products during the first 2 days?

Q. Can I get the Hair Taming System done while pregnant or nursing?

A. While there are no known adverse effects, pregnant women and nursing mothers should consult a physician prior to any type of hair treatment.

Q. Is this Hair Taming System good for African American hair type?
A. Yes, this treatment is ideal for African American hair. the Global Keratin Hair Taming System with JUVEXIN can be used to provide softness and frizz free results with out the use of harsh chemicals.

Q. What is the difference between relaxers / Japanese straightening and Global Keratin Hair Taming System with JUVEXIN?
A. Global Keratin Hair Taming System with JUVEXIN is a Keratin based system with straightening capabilities that naturally washes out in 3 to 5 months. It protects and restores the hair without using harsh chemicals. Relaxers and Japanese straightening work on breaking and rearranging the internal bonds of the hair. Once these processes are done, the hair is permanently straightened. The new growth of the Japanese straightening will always be curly, but the previously straightened hair will never revert or blend back.

Brazilian Hair Straightening On Sale in Beverly Hills!

tombrophyCome Celebrate N’ Get It Straight!

Tom Brophy Salon in Beverly Hills is Offering an Exciting Mother’s Day Promo of $100 Off a Full Brazilian Hair Straightening Treatment.

Just in time for summer, Tom Brophy Salon offers all women (mothers and daughters alike) desiring smoother, straighter locks a great reason to show off their beautiful tresses. For one month–between April 10,2009 and Mother’s Day May 10, 2009–the salon announces it will offer $100 off a full Brazilian hair straightening service*, which requires a complimentary pre-consultation. When booking the appointment, clients should mention “Mother’s Day Promo” to receive the $100 off.

“We wanted to get the word out about this exciting new treatment available to women who desire straighter hair but want a gentle process that doesn’t damage their hair or expose them to noxious fumes,” states Tom Brophy, master stylist and owner of the Tom Brophy Salon in Beverly Hills. “The Brazilian straightener is an amazing treatment that leaves hair feeling super soft, smooth and shiny, great for people who don’t want to spend a lot of time straightening their hair every day using various styling products.” 

About the Treatment

The formaldehyde-free Brazilian Straightener starts with a relaxing, deep cleansing shampoo that removes oils and prepares the hair to absorb the straightener, which is followed by a blow dry and flat ironing. The hair is rinsed and then blown out one final time. This revolutionary treatment is suitable for all hair types. The result is shiny, straight hair.  The treatment regularly costs $450 and requires consultation in advance, and costs less for a partial straightening. It takes approximately two hours and may last up to 4 months depending on how often the hair is shampooed. 

Why a Pre-Consultation is Required

The pre-consultation is required in order to evaluate if there is already significant pre-existing chemical damage to the hair, which the candidate may not be aware of. In cases of significant pre-existing chemical damage, the salon may advocate a different route. In cases of partial straightening, which are not eligible for the $100 off, the salon will customize the quote.

The Tom Brophy Salon focuses on sophisticated cuts and color services that work well over a period of time, in addition to offering high quality service to its clients. The salon’s menu of services includes: blow outs, updo styling, healthy scalp treatment, collagen hair therapy treatment, scalp cleansing massage, color (tint and highlights), color gloss, color correction, permanent wave, relaxer, and straight perm/retexturizer. 

The Tom Brophy Salon is located at 9681 Wilshire Blvd. in Beverly Hills. For more information about the salon or Tom Brophy, call the salon at 310.858.8780 or visit www.tombrophyhair.com.

Brazilian Keratin Treatment FAQ

Still thinking of going for the Brazilian Keratin Treatment? All in all, it’s a toxic treatment in my book, but here are some FAQ’s you might find helpful when considering your options.

Is it approved by the FDA? No. No way. You should really stop reading right now. That sentence sums up the entire article, but if you are still interested, keep reading.

A Brazilian Keratin Treatment (BKT) can be used on every hair type whether natural or chemically enhanced. This includes virgin hair, color-treated hair, Japanese straightened hair, relaxed hair, permed hair, highlighted hair, gray hair. The results will last longer on ‘non-virgin’ (translation: porous/damaged) hair. Sure, so your hair can soak up more of the toxic chemicals. Who wouldn’t want that? Me!

It is not a relaxer, it’s a chemical treatment (with Formaldehyde with a capital “F”) that straightens your hair. Read more about the dangerous risks of a BKT treatment here.

If you are coloring your hair, you should color your hair first, then get the BKT. If you want to color your hair after a BKT, you must wait at least two weeks. Assuming you don’t have any issues from breathing in all of those toxic fumes and have a Doctor’s appointment instead.

If you’re cutting your hair, wait until after the treatment. Sure, why not sit around having more hair straightened to cut it off right after? Great idea.

It can be done on anyone over six years of age. Assuming they know all the risks of getting a chemical treatment that is loaded with potential risks (including cancer) due to the toxic Formaldehyde fumes. I’m sure kids like that…NOT!

While getting the BKT you should wear a mask and keep your eyes closed during the entire blow drying session due to the large amounts of (potentially toxic) Formaldehyde fumes. Great huh? A MASK. Why are you even still reading this?

After the treatment you must wait 4 full days before doing anything to your hair. This includes washing, wetting, using any type of hair products, wearing a ponytail, headband, etc. Nothing can be done to the hair until after 4 days – this will allow the hair to ‘set’. I’m sure you’ll smell nice and Formaldehyde-y by then, people at work will love you. And best of luck taking a shower and not getting your hair wet without tying it up, pulling it back or twisting it.

If for some reason your hair does get wet you must blow dry it immediately. This of course will subject you to more toxic Formaldehyde fumes. Toxic bonus!

After your 4 day ‘sentence’ feel free to treat your hair as you normally would. Wash it, wet it, go swimming, go nuts with the ponytails, whatever floats your boat. At least you’ll be washing off the Formaldehyde.

Your BKT will last anywhere from 2 to 4 months depending on your hair type. Like I mentioned above, it works longer on ‘non-virgin’ hair. But I’ll bet the potential dangers will last way longer than that.

After your BKT make sure you wash with a Sodium Chloride free shampoo. Sure, they’ll smother and cover you in Formaldehyde but stay far away from the Sodium Chloride – that’ll keep you safe…NOT.

The best part? Aside from the fabulous danger your putting yourself in, of course, the entire treatment must be done again after the 2-4 month time frame. No touch ups. The whole entire process. YAY, more Formaldehyde.

I find this You Tube video frightening…and I’m sure the stylist doesn’t know that she should be wearing a mask as well.

Still thinking of getting a Brazilian Keratin Treatment? Me neither.

Yes formaldehyde, and many treatments can contain higher percentages than that. For more info, read our article Brazilian Keratin Treatment 411.
