Keratin is a kind of fibrous protein that makes up the main structural content of human hair, nails and the external layer of the skin. It is also the main component for providing strength to cerain organs such as the tongue and the palate. As much as keratin provides the structural content for toughness in these body parts, keratin also has the ability to heal and grow itself which is why your nails continue to grow; how fast depending on the strength of them.
Keratin and your hair
Keratin is a strong component of human hair, and given the very important role played by the hair in our physiology and physical makeup, one should begin to see how keratin is extremely vital to hair upkeep. Since hair is almost all keratin, keeping the hair clean and nourished through nutrition should be the least care we can provide.
The hair is a vital part of our facial projection, and caring does not only mean using the best shampoo and eating three nutritious meals a day, it also means we have to arrange our hair to make us look beautiful. This is why there are now many hair treatments and procedures that seek to enhance the health and beauty of our hair.
Hair care treatments
In fact, hair care is now a key component of the billion dollar beauty care industry. It is a reality that confirms the importance of hair care treatment. And to address the needs of the hair being substantially a keratin-filled body part, hairdressing supplies and preparations will usually involve keratin.
There are many products which promote various ways of keeping the hair healthy with keratin being the main component. One classic example of hair treatment that uses such a keratin focus with good results is the procedure on hair straightening. Using a keratin treatment on your hair helps to create a straight hair effect which lasts through a number of washes.
The Keratin treatment
The procedure uses some hair treatment chemicals on curly hair and heats the hair to seal it into the hair strands. The procedure takes around 90 minutes or more depending on the length of the hair. After, the customer can enjoy straight frizz-free hair for up to two and a half months.
Keratin treatment, of course, is a normal hair procedure if we consider that keratin is the basic component of hair. For that reason, all procedures, preparations and hairdressing supplies that are used to beautify the hair or enhance its condition must be adaptive to keratin. Otherwise, these products and treatments will have adverse effects on hair.
Complete beauty care
When it comes to nutrition, if we are fond of foods that are rich in keratin nutrients, we are adding keratin to the hair naturally. Foods rich in protein and certain vitamins should add body and sparkle to hair. Red meat, chicken, eggs, milk, fish and yoghurt are examples of protein-rich foods. So are beans, nuts, and whole grains.
Our complete beauty care programme should therefore include eating a healthy balanced diet, keeping ourselves fit and healthy and using the right hairdressing supplies. If you want to know which particular beauty treatment is suitable for you, you need to consult a reliable beauty expert.
