How do I perform the keratin treatment? You don’t need to be a qualified hairdresser to perform this treatment! 

  • Rinse hair and wash with step 1 (this prepares the hair for the Keratin)
  • Dry hair 80% & Part hair into sections.
  • Apply Step 2 Keratin to the hair and comb through sections
  • Blow dry hair
  • Using a hair straightener run across strands of hair 5 – 7 times to seal the Keratin In.
  • Once all the Keratin has been sealed, rinse hair.
  • Wash hair with Step 3 Conditioner
  • Dry Hair and straighten if desired


Getting a keratin hair straightening treatment can be quite expensive. We took the salon formula and made an at home kit. So now you can have straight hair at a fraction of the cost.

We have 2 formulas:
Brasil Cacau – For a Straighter finish
Keratin AUS Smooth – For Defined Smooth hair
