Black women which is the lesser of two evils: keratin treatment or relaxer?

Question by gurlycirl: Black women which is the lesser of two evils: keratin treatment or relaxer?
Right now I’m rocking individual braids and cornrows (natural hair) but I’d like to change it up and wear my hair down. Problem is I also work out so it’s no point in flat ironing or curling it, it just sweats out.
I figure both have harsh chemicals that aren’t the best things to be exposed to (keratin has formaldehyde and relaxers have lye), but I NEED a solution to just loosen my curls. I’m not looking to go bone straight, but something to make my natural 4b go to type 3ish hair. I actually want to wear my hair down in the loose curls on a daily basis, and maybe every once in while straighten it.

my hair is more like hers

Q&A: Organix Keratin 30 Day Treatment help ???! Ten points for best answer!?

Question by Sierra R: Organix Keratin 30 Day Treatment help ???! Ten points for best answer!?
Okay, so on Saturday I did the Organix Keratin 30 Treatment. If any of you have tried it, you know your supposed to blow dry your hair straight then straighten it to seal the cuticle. I have never blow dried my hair straight before, so it was a frizzy hot mess. I straightened it and it didn’t look any different then when I normally straighten it. I didn’t know how much product to put in my hair because all the box said was “do not saturate hair” so I didn’t put very much (I still have 3/4 of the bottle left). I washed it out today, and my hair is just as curly as it usually is. If I try to do the Organix treatment again today with the rest of the bottle, do you think my hair will fall out or something? And should I use the rest of the bottle (3/4 left)? And do you think it would work better if instead of blow drying my hair straight, if I just blow dried it then straightened it really good?
I have never dyed my hair, or used any chemicals on it other than this Organix treatment and it was only one time.
I’ve decided to try it again today since i’m leaving for Florida in like five days and I want straight hair for Florida. I put most of the rest of the bottle on my hair this time, so hopefully it works.

DONT DONT DONT GET A PERM! KERATIN HAIR TREATMENT IS GOOD FOR YOUR HAIR! Keratin is a protein which hair is made out of. I have thick curly hair ( no perm ) and i use the keratin hair treatment. The mre you use it the more healthy your hair becomes. It is more expensive but it is REALLY worth it :) .

Best hair treatment you’ve ever used?

Question by : Best hair treatment you’ve ever used?
I don’t want a shampoo or conditioner, I want a treatment such as a serum, cream, or spray for my hair, as i straighten it almost every single day, so I need a super good treatment to prevent split ends and heat damage.

I’ve used the following:
Biosilk Silk Therapy
Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serium
Redken Align 12
Chi Keratin Mist (My favorite out of them all)
Garner Fructis Smoothing Milk
Sunsilk Anti Frizz
Organix Coconut Milk

The price doesn’t really matter. My mom works in a salon and gets a pretty decent discount and free samples of products.

Thanks!:)

Brazilian keratin treatment or Japanese hair straightening?

Question by : Brazilian keratin treatment or Japanese hair straightening?
ok i was thinking about getting one of these products done.i am chinese Jamaican and cuban and i have hair like Tamara Tunie but with curls a little looser.i was wondering which one would be best for me.Also what are some good things about the products and what are some bad things and how are they different?
i want to know what is best for me i like to straighten and curl my hair but it never stays down and it take me about 3 hours to straighten my hair and it all for nothing because it never stays.

Answer by Sur La Mer
I do not recommend NEITHER.
I wouldn’t recommend them. There are many brands of hair straightening out there and they call them anyway they want to get your attention. Coco is another name brand. Some Japanese hair straightening processes can damage the hair and leave it flat and lifeless.
Hair straighteners are known as hair relaxers, keratin treatments and hair-smoothing products. They work by breaking and reforming the chemical bonds in keratin, which is the main protein that gives shape to each hair.

The hair industry is a billion dollar business, they sell products that cleans & condition the hair. They also sell products that damage and causes hair loss. They also DO NOT give money back guarantee for damaged hair or hair loss due to ‘abuse’. Mechanical, chemical, or thermal styling. Hair straighteners and relaxers top the hair products pose the greatest risks. Hair relaxers, related products marketed heavily to African-American women, are dangerous because they may contain powerful chemicals such as lye, a toxic substance also used in drain cleaners.

Google keratin treatment warnings. About 1,980,000 results (0.17 seconds) 
 
Past users of the product have complained of sore throat, skin irritation, headaches, chest pain and rashes, among other symptoms. That may have something to do with the fact that the levels of formaldehyde found in the product rival those typically used in funeral embalming. That’s a lot of formaldehyde.
Reps for the company swear it’s all a misunderstanding. And the product labels itself “no formaldehyde” and “formaldehyde free.” The company has until September 12 to get its affairs in order, or risk having its product seized by the FDA. “We have been tested countless times by OSHA,” the company’s CEO Mike Brady told NPR. “And we have never exceeded a safety standard ever.” Right now, they are fighting with the FDA, but will continue to give what customers want,. Buyer beware!
Hair-straightening products are allowed to contain small concentrations of formaldehyde (0.2 percent). But several hair-straightening solutions have been found to contain well above the allowable limit. For example, one popular hair-straightening product that advertised itself as “formaldehyde-free” actually contained 6.8 percent to 11.8 percent formaldehyde.

It is a billion dollar business, and they do not give money back guarantee for damaged hair or hair loss due to ‘abuse’, in this case, cancer.

“No-lye” hair relaxers safer? > > > > > > >
•Any relaxer can burn your scalp if you use it the wrong way.
•Lye is something found in many hair relaxers. It helps the product work, but it can also burn the skin.
•Relaxers without lye don’t usually bother your skin as much, but you still need to be safe and use them the right way.

Chemicals can enter the body through the skin.
