i needed an example of formula, and i' ve founded the inci list of the Kerarganic Organic Keratin System; thanks to this dealer; it is a unique honesty to the customers !!!
but, if this product is organic, Dow Chemicals and Du Pont de Nemours are organic factories !!! ( in Europe, it is forbiden using the term organic without a certification)
i precise that his formula is no better or worst as others; simply conform to the professionnal uses in keratin treatments
what is there in the bottle? Water/Aqua, Glyoxyloyl Carbocysteine (and) Glyoxyloyl Keratin Amino Acids, Cetyl Alcohol, Hydroxyethyl Cellulose, Glycerin, Mineral Oil, Hydrolyzed Keratin, Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine, Silk Amino Acids, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Argania Spinosa Kernel (Argan Oil) Oil, Polyquaternium-11, Phenyl Dimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane (and) Dimethiconol, Cyclomethicone, Fragrance/Parfum, Tocopheryl Acetate, Butyrospermum Parkii Fruit, Cocos Nucifera Oil, Panthenol, Retinyl Palmitate, Glutamine, Phenoxyethanol (and) Ethylhexylglycerin, EDTA, Colloidal Gold, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Amodimethicone (and) Glycerin (and) C11 - 15, Pareth-7 (and) Laureth-9 (and) Trideceth-12
the " keratin" is: hydrolysed collagen, hydrolysed keratin, silk amino acids,hydrolysed wheat collagen ( aka vegetal keratin), glutamin; remember that keratin is not soluble in water !!!
there are also one aldehyde furnishers: Glyoxyloyl Carbocysteine (and) Glyoxyloyl Keratin Amino Acids solubilized in cetyl alcohol
to avoid a reaction between those two types of components, the " keratin" solution is gelified with Hydroxyethyl Cellulose
when dried , they react and you get a plastic matter, wich will get hardness when you use the flat iron
it is this plastic who rigidifies the hair and straighten it
but, it will be very deshydrated, and none water can go to the hair, and much tangles and hair breakage when you brush ; more after a few weeks, when the plastic sheet will begin breaking !!!
to avoid it, they use lubricants: Phenyl Dimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane (and) Dimethiconol, Cyclomethicone, and a lubricant in micro emulsion from Dowsil: Amodimethicone (and) Glycerin (and) C11 - 15, Pareth-7 (and) Laureth-9 (and) Trideceth-12 wich is also an emulsifier
and also quaternary tensives to untangle: Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine, Polyquaternium-11
after the keratin treatment done, you must, at each hairwash use a conditioner untangler silicone-quaternary tensives based, or you will get hair breakage
to protect from uv-rays, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate ( for sun can damage the plastic coating...)
and some other components less useful, or for the marketing assertions ( argan oil...)
now, before doing a staieghtening treatment, you know what happens to your hair!!!
a basilian blowout is a wax coating of the hair
a keratin treatment is a aldehyde-proteins plastic coating of the hair
a taninoplasty is a keratin treatment added of tannin ( another insolubilizer of proteins, but natural)
and a japanese straightening is a perm ( no way out !!!)
and I let you make your choice, your conscience being enlightened
