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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

I recommend you see a dermatrologist to better evaluate what going on and determine why you are loosing so much hair. ...Read more

Stress can affect ur: Hair as can poor diet, and any thyroid issues will impact this too.

I always counsel my patients to very carefully consider what they "feed" not only their mouths, but also their skin and scalp- which are highly vascular and large "consumers" of products. Most products are never going to be tested on preggos. ...Read more
