Sometimes I think it rains in Delaware more than anywhere else. Intellectually, I know it’s not true – I’m not in Seattle, after all! But, when the daffodils begin to emerge and the temperatures rise, invariably it rains and rains (and rains!). Since I do battle with my hair on the driest and sunniest of days, rainy days can prove to be my undoing. I know I should stop – I blow dry, color, wield a flatiron, occasionally even use hot rollers. To say that my hair is dry is an understatement. So, when the heavens open up – I frizz! When I was offered the opportunity to try nuNAAT’s Brazilian Keratin collection especially formulated to combat frizz, I was intrigued.
Lately, I have been on a mission and have tried numerous products for dry, damaged hair. But, this is the first actual hair system – moisturizing shampoo, daily conditioner, leave-in reconstructor, shine serum and even a weekly, deep conditioning hair mask!
The difference is that nuNAAT’s Brazilian Keratin products are specially formulated to work with one another to retain hair’s everyday moisture, reduce volume, plus eliminate the dreaded frizz. And, unlike typical animal-based keratins, their exclusive Green Keratin formula stays in your hair longer and is more resistant to rinsing.
Brazilian Keratin Daily Care Shampoo
This shampoo works with all hair types, but is especially recommended for those who have professionally relaxed, straightened, or colored hair. My hair has never been softer or smoother! This shampoo helps restore natural shine, too. One note: The shampoo is more like a liquid serum, so it comes out fast! I was concerned that this would translate into thin suds – but nothing could be further from the truth. This shampoo lathers like mad and leaves hair incredibly healthy looking.
Brazilian Keratin Daily Care Conditioner
This conditioner is a new favorite! Like all of the nuNAAT products, the Daily Care Conditioner smells like a product from an expensive salon — and works like one, too. Formaldehyde and sodium chloride free, the Daily Conditioner helps repair and seal cuticle damage, leaving hair silky, smooth and flexible. Designed for daily use, it contains high-capacity conditioning ingredients so hair is easily untangled (a huge benefit if you have longer hair like mine).
Brazilian Keratin Liquid Keratin Leave-In Reconstructor
The leave-in reconstructor is just what it sounds like – a no-rinse softness and shine booster. You only need a bit – a little goes a long way. Apply to wet hair before blow drying and style as usual. The intense heat from a flat-iron or hot rollers seals your hair cuticles, causing the keratin to penetrate the hair fibers. If you use heat styling tools, you can use this product every day.
Brazilian Keratin Serum Ultra Shine
The Ultra Shine was one of my personal favorites. Since coloring makes my hair dull, any product that adds shine is huge bonus. And, the special silicone formula actually creates a film that not only gives hair shine, but also protects against environmental damage. The Ultra Shine can be used on either wet or dry hair. (I tried it both ways and found it was more effective for me to apply to dry hair and use a comb to distribute it evenly.)
Brazilian Keratin Intensive Hair Mask
This is only a once a week treatment – so be careful not to overdo it (although it’s tempting). Use the mask in place of regular conditioner for an intensive treatment. Leave in for 10-20 minutes, then rinse well and style as usual.
nuNAAT’s Brazilian Keratin hair products are available at select Walgreens and Walmart stores, beauty supply stores and Amazon.
