What is Keraplasty?

Do not confuse keraplasty and keratin straightening. Keraplasty is hair restoration with a keratin-based preparation. The protein in this case is obtained from the wool of New Zealand sheep in the most environmentally friendly and safe way. In terms of its structure and properties, it is closest to the protein that makes up human hair. Therefore, such keratin is optimally absorbed and gives a visible result – the curl becomes denser and stronger.

The preparation used during keraplasty does not contain formaldehyde and other potentially hazardous substances. And this is its main difference from all types of keratin straightening. Of course, no iron is used during the procedure, only a 4-step treatment program: cleansing with shampoo, then application of KeraTriplex concentrate, mask and finally surface treatment with conditioner. Keraplasty does not change the structure of the hair.

How does the keratin molecule get into the hair?

The KeraTriplex preparation used for keraplasty is based on a triple molecule of keratin – pure, oxidized and hydrolyzed. Studies show that in this way it is possible to “deliver” the protein exactly where it is needed, that is, to fill the voids inside the hair, formed as a result of mechanical damage.

Who is this procedure suitable for and what problems does it solve?

The procedure is recommended for damaged hair (due to lightening or aggressive chemical treatment, prolonged exposure to the sun, etc.). Also, keraplasty will help with age-related thinning and brittle hair. We fill the damaged areas inside the hair with keratin, thereby thickening it and giving it strength. And the moisturizing components in the composition of auxiliary cares, in turn, provide the elasticity of the curls.

How long does the procedure take and does it have a cumulative effect?

The duration of the procedure depends on the length and thickness of the hair. On average – from 1 to 3 hours. Keraplasty has a cumulative effect, we recommend repeating it every five weeks (first 3-4 procedures, and then you need to look at the condition of the hair).

Are there any restrictions after the procedure?

The only limitation is to use only sulfate-free shampoos (more about them – here) that do not wash out the keratin. For the rest, use common sense: do not abuse thermal devices, and in the summer, protect your hair from UV rays (by what means – we wrote here).

How does hair visually look after leaving?

Hair becomes denser, shinier and more well-groomed. Keraplasty does not straighten curls, but restores them. Of course, there is also an external result – the surface of the hair is somewhat smoothed out, hence shine appears.
