HOW TO: Affordable Brazilian Hair Keratin Treatment At Home


Keratin Treatment


After a couple of months in London, my hair was starting to feel unbearable. My hair was always frizzy and it looked like something attacked my head in my sleep. I was looking for a miracle product. After watching this video on YouTube, I decided to order the Brazilian Treatment Kit and give it at try. This treatment takes a while to put in but as long as you are patient, then it’s actually quite ok. The results are AMAZING!! My hair is like silk and poker straight (I have naturally curly hair which I used to straighten daily) even after 3 days my hair is still poker straight.

Great, but what is the Brazilian Keratin Treatment?
A Brazilian Keratin Treatment is a  treatment offered at hair salons and very popular. A stylist applies a keratin solution to your hair, much as she would hair color.  Your hair is blown dry and then sealed with a flat iron to seal the formula into the hair’s cuticle. The keratin plugs up the “holes” in the shingles. That’s why it looks so healthy, because it’s mimicking the structure you hair would have if I didn’t do anything to it ever and it is perfect!

With the Ion Keratin Smoothing Treatment Kit , you can do the treatment at home. It is an at-home version of the treatment that helps you achieve salon-quality results at your own home at a fraction of the price and is formaldehyde free.

My personal experience

There’s definitely a big difference. I’m now able to blow dry my hair and leave it down, I don’t even have to style it with straightening irons afterwards, something I have never been able to do before! Two months later since my last treatment, my hair is still just as smooth and sleek as it was after the first wash. I am very happy with the results of the treatment and couldn’t wait to share this with you guys!

How do I use the Ion Keratin Smoothing Treatment Kit?
Step 1
Wash your hair twice with the clarifying shampoo, rinse and towel dry (do not use conditioner)

Step 2
Blow-dry hair your hair as straight as possible. Try to use a good quality blow dryer. This really helps a lot. Don’t blow dry towards your face.

Step 3
Comb hair thoroughly.

Step 4
Part hair into manageable sections using hair clips.

Step 5
Brush Keratin Treatment onto sections of hair and comb out the excess

Step 6
After 20 minutes blow-dry hair, until completely dry (in a well-ventilated room).

Step 7
Straighten your hair with hot hair straighteners up to 5 times to seal in the treatment.

Step 8
Keep your hair straight for 3 days. Do not wash, tie up or style hair for 3 days.

Step 9
Wash your hair with salt-free shampoo and conditioner (not included).

Step 10
Continue to use salt-free shampoo and conditioner to prevent the treatment from washing out prematurely.

How long does it last?
The application process takes 1-2 hours and the hair cannot be washed for 3 days afterwards. Each treatment lasts up to 3 months when you commit to correct aftercare. Use a sulfate-free shampoo. A don’t use too much heat on your hair. Try to limit it to once a week.

    Very helpful! But what’s the brand that you used?

  • Chiani Dunning

    Easy to understand, but I was wondering, Do you need to keep ironing on ironing your hair every week, or can you just leave it? What will happen if we leave it?

    • Bleu Jay Lady

      Chiani, You may have to do some “touch-up” ironing after the hair gets wet (shampoo, swimming, walking in the rain :-) ) or damp (exercising, sleeping, etc.). However, it shouldn’t take as long as before treatment. If you just leave it with no touch-up ironing, it’ll get a bit frizzy, but should still be shinier and more manageable than before treatment.

      Hope this helps :-)
