Have you ever wondered the link between the horn of an Impala and the hair strands of a human being? They are both made up of Keratin. Needless to say, Keratin, a kind of protein, is crucial for strong and healthy hair. It prevents hair breakage, hair fall, heat damage, frizz and a host of other hair problems. For long, beauticians and hair experts have recommended the use of Keratin in hair fall treatment and hair loss treatment

However, recent studies have shown that Keratin hair treatment may have ugly side effects to the person who is undertaking the Keratin chemical treatment as well as the one who is providing the treatment (or in other words, the beautician). We shall study what is Keratin, what is Keratin chemical treatment, and finally is it safe for your hair?

What Exactly is Keratin?

Keratin is a kind of fibrous structural protein that makes up hair, nails, feathers, horns in all vertebrate animals, including human beings. Keratin’s main purpose is to help protect epithelial (outer skin) cells or tissues from damage. It is also the main ingredient that adds structure and shine to your hair.

Keratin do to your Hair

What does Keratin do to your Hair?

Keratin chemical treatment uses a solution with Keratin protein and formaldehyde, under high heat, to straighten hair strands and lock them in position. They are said to be beneficial for people who have curly or frizzy hair.

In this treatment, the beautician mixes Keratin with formaldehyde that is brushed on the hair, blow-dried and then straightened with a flat iron to lock hair strands in position. The hair can then be styled as per the latest trends. From fancy braids to stunning bouffant, hair stylists can turn straight hair into attractive styles quite easily.

There are a number of benefits one can get from Keratin chemical treatment:

  • Firstly, it helps in smoothing your hair. If your hair strands are unmanageable and curly, smoothing your hair gives you an attractive, naturally beautiful look.
  • Secondly, Keratin chemical treatment makes your hair lustrous and shiny. You may have often seen glamorous stars in advertisements and films with a full mane of thick hair that looks shiny, lustrous and full of life. These stars often go through special Keratin chemical treatments that are responsible for their straight hair.
  • Thirdly, this treatment fills the gaps in each hair strand making it appear fuller and thicker. Women today, who often complain of split ends and damaged hair, can opt for a complete Keratin treatment, which will not only fill in the gaps in the protein of each hair strand but also give richer looking hair.

These benefits have contributed to the rising popularity of Keratin hair treatments across the world. Women today are willing to spend huge amounts in such hair treatments that promise to give them the much-coveted looks of glamour models, film stars and other celebrities. But is Keratin treatment worth the hype? Is it good for thin hair? Can there be any other safer alternative methods to counter hair fall and have a scalp full of thicker, richer-looking hair?

why not ask the experts

Are there any side effects of a Keratin treatment?

Keratin treatment comes with a heavy price. There are several potential ill effects of using a Keratin treatment, especially the one that comes with formaldehyde. Many doctors now recommend banning the use of this chemical completely in beauty products and regimens. However, its use continues unabated. Here are some of the potentially damaging results of Keratin mixed with formaldehyde:

Keratin Treatment May Cause Cancer

The Centre for Disease Control defines formaldehyde as a colourless, odourless gas that is used in construction work, superglue and other things. However, many scientists claim that being exposed to formaldehyde for a long period of time may increase your chances of either acquiring cancer or spreading it, if you already have cancer. It is therefore harmful to both the beautician who is applying the solution as well as the person who is undergoing this treatment.

Keratin Treatment May Cause Severe Allergies

In many cases, formaldehyde may cause allergies, rashes, coughing and sneezing. In 2016, the Food and Drug Administration was sued because it did not ban the use of Keratin, despite being fully aware of the associated risks.

Keratin Treatment May Result in Breakage of Hair

It is a well-known fact that Keratin treatment may result in breakage of hair. This is due to the fact that the treatment uses high heat that may make hair strands appear beautiful, but will ultimately result in hair damage and breakage.

How good is Keratin treatment for thin hair?

It must be remembered here that Keratin treatments are designed for thick, coarse hair. This treatment may prove to be beneficial for thick and unmanageable hair stands, but it would help very little in treating thin hair. Fragile and thin hair strands may be overwhelmed with a Keratin treatment and may result in further hair damage and hair breakage.

Is there any alternative to Keratin treatment?

People have hair of different kinds. Some are thick and lustrous, while others are thin and fragile. Yet others are frizzy and unmanageable. Therefore, it is important to remember that one should aim at having beautiful hair naturally rather than opting for artificial treatments. Chemical treatments should be kept to a bare minimum.

There are plenty of alternative treatments one can opt for. Advanced Hair Studio is a hair restoration company that provides the best hair fall treatment and hair loss treatment available in the market.

It has a long and illustrious history of 45 years, providing safe and effective hair loss and hair fall treatments to celebrities all across the world. The company, with its international reputation as the world’s largest hair restoration and hair retention company, offers a number of treatments that can be used as an alternative to a keratin treatment.

Is using Keratin Fibers an alternative treatment?

Advanced Hair Studio is known for its rather innovative product called Magic. It is a natural hair thickening fiber product that instantly rebuilds your hair with natural Keratin fibers creating the illusion of a scalp with thicker and lustrous hair.

These hair thickening fibers instantly attach to your scalp, creating an electrostatic bond with your existing hair and giving the appearance of hair volume and thickness.

People with a receding hairline and thinning hair should definitely opt for this product rather than opting for the more harmful Keratin treatment. Here are some of the benefits of this product as compared to Keratin treatment:

  • It helps in completely hiding your balding patch. As you apply this product, the hair thickening fibers, which are made up of Keratin protein, blend naturally with your existing hair and hide your receding hairline. The precise micro-cut fibers give you the illusion of natural-looking hair.
  • The hair fibers stay in place. Come rain or heat, the fibers stay strongly attached to your existing strands, thereby creating the appearance of a scalp full of hair.
  • The Advanced Thickening Hair Fibers is an excellent non-surgical, completely safe application to be used in conjunction with Advanced Laser Therapy or AHS-FP programs.

To conclude, it must be said that if you are searching for an effective hair fall treatment or a suitable hair loss treatment, you should definitely give Advanced Hair Studio’s Hair Thickening Fiber product a try for your thinning areas or you can consider looking at their retention program to improve the quality of your hair rather than opting for traditional Keratin treatment for hair.

Hair with Keratin treatment may give you temporary benefits, but the long-term disadvantages outweigh potential advantages. Keratin for hair treatment should be avoided as much as possible and, rather, one should ideally opt for safer therapies such as Advanced Laser Treatment by Advanced Hair Studio.

No wonder, doctors and medical experts are discrediting Keratin treatments for hair because of their harmful medical effects. You too should stay away from such treatment and opt for safer, healthier options.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
