The treatment is structured with hydrolyzed keratin, that is the chemically decomposed molecule in units compatible with the keratin structure of the hair.
Following the procedure, the hair stylist will be able to guarantee smooth and soft hair for two or three months.
The risk is that in the products used during the session there is a too high percentage of formaldehyde which causes damage to health and does not guarantee the desired result.
