What is Hair Botox in Turkey?

Hair botox is a new treatment method that turns back time and can help you restore your hair instead of cutting your worn-out hair. It removes wrinkles just like botox applied to the skin.

If you are looking for a solution to soften your hair and make it look fuller, radiant, vibrant, hair botox will help to care for exactly the way you want.

While botox is an injectable product used cosmetically to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, hair botox is a topical procedure intended for use on hair. Hair botox does not have botulinum toxin, which is a neurotoxin that relaxes muscles and smoothes the skin, like botox used for the face.

It is the newest repair treatment formulated to restore vitality to hair damaged by chemical processes, straightening and blow-drying. This effective treatment makes your dull and aging hair look young and healthy again. The formula creates its rejuvenating power from a mixture of powerful antioxidants, proteins and essential nutrients, including silk and wheat proteins, omega-3, amino acids, collagen complex and B5 vitamins.

Botox solution fills cracks in the hair shaft, replenishes lost protein, and also provides intense hydration, repairs split ends, reduces frizz, and adds a beautiful shine to your hair. The process nourishes the hair strands from the inside out and gives the hair a softening effect.

Hair botox is suitable for all hair types, regardless of texture or condition. The total duration of treatment is about 1.5 hours, and the effects last for several weeks.

To get the desired results, you need to consult an experienced specialist before performing this treatment. It is also possible to apply the treatment at home, but it would be better to set aside an appropriate amount of time, read and follow the instructions, and if possible, have a friend help.

Hair Botox is actually a deep care that covers the hair fibers with a filler such as keratin. The procedure fills in broken or thin areas on each strand of hair to make the hair look fuller and brighter.

Although the exact time frame varies from person to person, the effects of hair botox are expected to last 2-4 months. It is recommended to use a low-sulfate or non-sulfate shampoo to maintain the results.

As with any hair care, although there is a risk of skin irritation or allergic reactions, the product is considered safe. To reduce the risk of harmful side effects, the product should not come into contact with your skin.

The difference between hair botox and keratin;

It is a chemical-free anti-aging treatment that works very similarly to the keratin process. Keratin treatments straighten your hair and get rid of curls, whereas hair botox loosens and softens curls, as well as contains more vitamins and antioxidants.

On the other hand, hair botox is only a care method and does not use chemical reactions to improve.

It is suitable for all hair types, while keratin therapy is usually used on thick and curly hair.

It rejuvenates the hair, whereas keratin treatment can cause damage with repeated treatments.

Hair botox can also be applied at home. Keratin treatment should be performed in a salon due to safety concerns.

The most important difference between hair botox and keratin treatment is that hair botox does not contain formaldehyde. This makes it safer to use than keratin.

Overexposure to formaldehyde may increase the risk of cancer.

Some keratin products have been found to contain dangerously high concentrations of formaldehyde. In a study published in the American Academy of Dermatology, researchers studied to measure the formaldehyde concentration of keratin products. Six of the seven products tested contained levels of formaldehyde ranging from 0.97 to 1.5% – exactly five times the 0.3% rate set by the US Cosmetic Ingredient Review Expert Panel.

According to research from the National Cancer Institute, in the short term, formaldehyde exposure can cause many negative effects, such as watery eyes, cough, nausea, burning eyes and nose, skin irritation, and more.

Hair Botox works by filling individual strands of hair to help with fullness and smoothing of your hair, and while doing this, the side effects mentioned in the above article are not observed.

Hair botox is a deep care cream that eliminates blistering, adds volume and rejuvenates damaged hair.

Hair botox is generally considered to be very safe. Most people can achieve good results without experiencing negative side effects.

As with most topical treatments, there is a small risk of an allergic reaction. Before applying the product to the rest of your head, do a small spot test on your hair to see how your body reacts.

How to Apply Hair Botox at Home?

Many people prefer to have hair botox treatment in a salon. However, it is possible to do it yourself at home and get excellent results. The best way to apply hair botox at home:

Wash your hair thoroughly with a clarifying shampoo.

Rinse off the shampoo and dry your hair slightly.

Open your hair using a wide-toothed comb.

Prepare the hair botox according to the instructions on the box.

Divide your hair into four equal sections.

Using a paintbrush, apply the mixture from the roots of your hair to the ends. Comb it to ensure that the product is evenly distributed on your hair.

Leave the mixture to stand for 45 minutes or as directed in the instructions. Curly hair may last longer.

Then wash and dry your hair.
