If you don´t want to spend such an amount for a treatment, which lasts about 3-4 months, then there is a simple solution for you: You can his is too much for you, then you can also do the Keratin Treatment at home with a special home kit for about 55€ (see below).

Straightened hair for a long time without the need for daily straighening 

To do the brazilian keratin therapy at home is very easy. The best way is to get a friend to do it for you. Maybe you can do her hair afterwards 😉

The brazilian hair straightening makes your hair much smoother, easier to comb and the hair gains gloss and elasticity. The effectivity of the keratin treatment depends on your hair type. Thinner and less curly hair is easier to smooth, but also with thick locks you will definitely see the smoothing effect. The treatment effect will last for about 3-4 months.

Increase duration of hair smoothing by using salt-free products

By using salt-free shampoos and conditioners regularly, the duration of the brazilian hair straighening can even be prolonged, so that you can enjoy the comforably smooth hair even longer without the need for daily smoothing with a hair iron.

How does the brazilian hair straightening work? – 8 steps to smoother hair

  • 1. Deep-cleansing: Wash your hair twice with the QOD Original Cleanse Shampoo** and dry it intensively with a towel afterwards.
  • 2. Thoroughly drying: Completely blow-dry the hair and comb it
  • 3. Apply the keratin treatment: Apply the keratin treatment (QOD MAX Hair treatment**) with the brush (included in treatment accessories set) and spread it equally on the whole hair. Remove surplus product with a comb. The whole hair should be soaked by the product..
  • 4. 10 Minutes of pause: Let the product work for 10 minutes.
  • 5. Hair Smoothing with the blow-dryer and a brush: After the break start to smooth the hair with the brush and a blow-dryer. the heat will activate the brazilian keratin. (About 5-10 minutes)
  • 6. Further smoothing with the ceramic hair iron: Afterwards smooth the hair with the hair iron at 200°C (F) for about 5 times to seal the keratin within the hair. THe right temperature is very important for the hair smoothing results. A too high temperature is always a burden for the hair, but with a temperature too low the effect of the keratin smoothing will also decrease. You should never exceed 230°C. If your hair is already damaged or coloured, you should not exceed 200°C. A   heat protection spray* can help to protect the hair from too high temperatures. Moreover a repairing hair care* in advance of the keratin treatment makes the hair more durable.
  • 7. Another pause of 15 minutes: Wait about 15 minutes after the hair smoothing.
  • 8. Wash out: Wash your hair profoundly with the QOD Max Post Treatment Shampoo**
  • 9. Conditioning: In the end apply the QOD MAX Post Treatment Conditioner** on the whole hair and dry the hair with a towel or a blow-dryer. And it is finished 🙂
