Does keratin hair treatment prevent water from reaching my actual hair when I wash it?? Does it form a layer around each hair and do so?

Does keratin hair treatment prevent water from reaching my actual hair when I wash it?? Does it form a layer around each hair and do so?

Not exactly: Contrary to what it sounds like, a "keratin hair treatment" actually uses an alkaline chemical to break the disulfide bonds of curly hair and effectively temporarily straighten it. The "keratin" part of the treatment is actually the last part, that which conditions and strengthens the hair as well as reversing damage by the straightening chemical. Your hair still get wet and washed by shampoo.

Help can Brazilian blowout hair treatment or keratin makes your hair fall out?

Any kind of: Trauma (heat, chemical, physical) can damage hair protein and make it break off, which you would think is "falling out". Be as gentle with your hair as possible. See a dermatologist if you have concerns. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or internet scams.

Hair Conditioning: Normal hair only needs a deep conditioning once a month. A deep conditioner usually needs to be left on the hair for at least 5 minutes and some up to 20 minutes. Some require a shower cap to be placed over the hair while it is conditioning. Some deep conditioners contain anti-oxidants like cranberry oil which help repair damage caused by pollution. Cranberry oil contains vitamin e, omega-3, other.

Wouldn't sweat it: The topical treatments you put on your skin/hair/nails/etc. Do not enter your bloodstream. Only material that does can affect breast milk.

I put a keratin treatment in my hair & products containing 'Sodium Chloride' will strip hair of Keratin. Does this also apply to 'Sodium Benzoate too?

I put a keratin treatment in my hair & products containing 'Sodium Chloride' will strip hair of Keratin. Does this also apply to 'Sodium Benzoate too?

Adverse Sodium Benzo: If you mix sodium benzoate with vitamin C (and it happens that there are two types of C in Express The Truth - calcium ascorbate and sodium ascorbyl phosphate), benzene can form. And benzene is carcinogenic. In the UK, a Food Standards Agency survey of benzene in soft drinks found high levels of it in four brands, which were removed from sale. Even without getting mixed up with vitamin C, sodium benzoate might not be as friendly as it looks. A study conducted by Peter Piper, a professor at Sheffield University in the UK and an expert in molecular biology and biotechnology, found that sodium benzoate damages cells, in an adverse way.

I started Valtrex (valacyclovir) for hsv1 the same time I got a Brazilian keratin treatment. I have had significant (loss of ~70%) hair since. Which cause this?

I started Valtrex (valacyclovir) for hsv1 the same time I got a Brazilian keratin treatment. I have had significant (loss of ~70%) hair since. Which cause this?

Valtrex (valacyclovir) and hairloss: I know of no known reports of Valtrex (valacyclovir) causing hair loss. As well, I do not think it would interact with your brazialian keratin treatment to cause this effect. I recommend you see a dermatrologist to better evaluate what going on and determine why you are loosing so much hair.

Growth products: If you are having issues with hair growth you should visit you hairdresser or your doctor or both. "High quality - inexpensive" is not likely to cover what you need.
