Rejuvenol Brazilian Keratin Treatment with Collagen

What is Rejuvenol Brazilian Keratin Treatment and does it work? Yes yes yes! Rejuvenol is a brazilian keratin based temporary straightening treatment that will keep your locks sleek and shiny for up to 5 months. It is very similar to the Keratin Complex by Coppola and the Global Keratin with Juvexin. The big difference? Rejuvenol has many more straightening options for the stylist or the at home professional. Rejuvenol has an original formula but also has a formaldehyde free version, a 1 hr treatment, and a 24 hr treatment. What is a 1 hr treatment? You only have to keep it in your hair for 1 hr and then you can rinse it out. Yay! Much better than the 72 hours you have to wait for Keratin Complex and Global Keratin. That is definitely revolutionary.

Japanese, Brazilian, Keratin Straightening Do’s and Don’ts

This week, I’m going to get my hair Japanese straightened.

It’s kind of a big deal. It works phenomenally – I won’t have a single curly hair left!

But my hair will be more sensitive to a lot of factors, and that’s something I need to give serious consideration to.

Award-winning colorist, Mia, has done her research and she wants to share color tips for chemically straightened hair.

“I get clients coming in all the time asking if they can color their chemically straightened hair. There are so many new straightening techniques out there that it can sometimes get confusing. So I’ve done my own sleuthing and compiled a list of a variety of treatments and the do’s and don’ts regarding coloring.”

Thermal Reconditioning/Japanese Straightening
Thermal reconditioning (also known as TR, Magic Straight, Ionic Perm, Bioionic Straightening, Yuko System, Liscio, Japanese Straightening, Japanese Straight Perm, Straight Perm and Rebonding) is a Hair Straightening procedure uses heat to change the shape of the hair. After the cuticle is broken down with chemicals, locks are ironed straight with a hot iron. A neutralization process then closes the cuticle, causing hair to stay straight. For women who spend hours each week blow-drying their hair into submission and dodging raindrops like bullets, thermal reconditioning is worth the time and money.

This hair straightening technique will normally last from five months to a year. It all depends on the rate of growth of your hair. Since new hair will grow to its normal characteristics, you will need to only touch up the new hair.

Afterward, you will be able to use standard good quality shampoos and hair conditioners. The treatment is pretty much permanent, until the hair grows out. You will want to protect your hair from ultraviolet rays, (intense sunshine); so applying hair products with UV protection like the Maijan Pure Organic Argan Oil is recommended. Lastly, you will need to wait at least four to six weeks before coloring your hair.

Keratin Treatment
Whether it is called Brazilian keratin treatment, Coppola keratin straightening, Keratin Complex treatment, Liquid keratin, and Global keratin, etc., the primary product used in this conditioning treatment is keratin. Keratin is a tough protein found in skin, hair and, nails. The chemical aldehyde, a derivative of formaldehyde, assists the keratin infusion into the hair.

Unlike the thermal reconditioning system (Japanese straightening) which thermally and chemically restructures the hair bonds to create permanent stick straight hair, the keratin procedures recondition the hair preventing frizz while allowing it to wave, curl, or be flat ironed straight. Hair gradually returns to its original state without the awkward growing out stage inherent to the Brazilian hair straightening. This advantage becomes its disadvantage; the treatment is not permanent and lasts anywhere from eight weeks to four months.

You need to wait two-three weeks before and after you do any other chemical treatments including coloring. For best results always do the coloring before Keratin treatment. After treatment the Keratin coat your hair like a thin layer of film and colorants might not penetrate the hair they way it should.

Ionic Hair Retexturizing (IHR)
Ionic Hair Retexturizing is the latest Japanese hair straightening technique, which locks in moisture and nutrients during the ironing process, to improve the condition as well as straighten the hair. It works best on non-chemically treated hair. Treatment lasts up to 6 months depending on the growth rate of your hair.

Always remember the healthiest hair usually has the fewest chemicals applied. Having both straightening and coloring may not be the best option for everyone. Being able to work with healthy, shiny hair will allow Mia to give her clients the very best results.

Flat Irons for Brazilian Keratin Treatments

When performing the Brazilian Keratin Straightening treatment (BKT), the Keratin Complex by Coppola Treatment, the Global Keratin Treatment, or any other Keratin based treatment the straightness of your hair is only as good as the flat iron you are using. We have reviewed a number of flat irons and straightening irons and have found the best flat irons to get your locks silky straight. These flat irons will help to activate the Keratin treatments and create longer lasting results.

What to look for?
Titanium Plates
When straightening your hair with any Keratin treatment your flat iron plates must be made with titanium. Titanium has an unbelievable ability to retain high heat. Most ceramic surfaces will loose heat as soon as you start to iron. The titanium plates will retain the heat once you start straightening. This will result in that beautiful shine on your hair.

450 Degrees or Above
In order to activate the keratin in the treatment the temperature of the flat iron temperature should be approximately 450 degrees. Normally when ironing your hair you honestly don’t need anything above 400 degrees or so but when doing the Keratin treatment it is important to have an iron that can go up 450 degrees.
