The break time of the product is between 15 and 25 minutes for optimum effect. In this way, the keratin penetrates deep into your hair: it feeds them, sheaths and gives them a shiny side. The care will provide flexibility, redefinition, and nutrition without frizz or weigh down the hair.

Almost all women and men will benefit from this care because it improves overall hair quality.

Here are the main advantages of Brazilian hair straightening:

It facilitates blow drying (setting). The hair takes the desired shape.
