What is keratin?

Keratin hair treatment is one of the best hair treatments for damaged hair beloved by millions of women around the globe.  However, not all of them even know what keratin is and why it helps their natural hair to stay silky.

From a scientific point of view, keratin is a fibrillar protein, which is the main structural material of the stratum corneum of the skin, hair, and nails. Healthy natural hair contains 15% water, 6% lipids (fats and fat-like substances that make hair shiny and strong), 1% pigment, and 78% keratin. In other words, keratin is a natural component of the hair.

The benefits of keratin are undeniable: while many hair care products work on the surface of the hair, the keratin molecule penetrates deep into the hair and improves it from the inside.

That’s why we recommend Brasil Cacau keratin hair straightening. Brasil Cacau is a system based on keratin that can be applied to any type of hair to give it a mirror shine and smoothness. Brasil Cacau protects your hair from porosity and external damages, repairing dead hair ends.

The composition of the product includes not only keratin but also additional moisturizing and softening additives: cocoa butter and D-panthenol, which work together to achieve a healthy condition of your hair.
