How does keratin treatment act as a neutralizer?
Post How does keratin treatment act as a neutralizer?

So I came across this technique which is called a Hybrid of Japanese straightening and Keratin treatment. In this video he skips the ''Neutralizer'' part after the straightening cream and directly washes the hair applies the keratin treatment. I want to know how the keratin can seal the hair and work as a neutralizer. can you explain this to me? Also, would it be okay to not wash off the keratin treatment after flat ironing and leave it like that for 3 days and then wash? Link to the hybrid video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYqy1hJkQ18

First of all - this so called “”Hybrid Japanese Hair Straightening and Brazilian/Keratin Treatment” has been in use for over 10 years, so it is not a new technology.

Second - the Brazilian Keratin Treatment does not replace the “Neutralizer” or act as a neutralizer. In fact, you can do Japanese Hair Straightening without using the “Neutralizer”. This is known as ‘Atmospheric oxidation”

For example, after ironing the hair section by section, and without applying the neutralizer is not a problem; the oxygen in the atmosphere will neutralize the perm/TR/Japanese Hair Straightening and reform the cystine/disulfide bonds. This takes 3 days, but you still need to ask the client not shampoo, sweat or wet her hair for 3 days. Keep in mind also that the neutralizing lotion acts as odor remover. So the best rule to follow is to always follow the manufactures direction. Meaning; best to use the neutralizing lotion.

Otherwise, here is why. Each time this woman shampoos her hair, her hair is going to have a nasty, skunk-like (thioglycolate) odor, and the odor persists. So even though all looks good in the video, and both, the client and stylist were pleased, nevertheless, I can assure you she must have brought this nasty odor to this stylist's attention.

The answer to your last question is a "yes"; it is perfectly fine not to rinse the Keratin Treatment and wait 3 days before shampooing the hair.

I'm new here so trying to figure out how to work this forum, I clicked on ''Post a reply'' and nothing was happening so i had to select ''Quote''. Anyway, Thanks a lot for your reply Steve. I'm from India so the whole Hybrid thing is kinda new here and most salons don't even offer this option. My other question is that Would it be okay to use a neutralizer after Xtenso/TR, wash the hair and THEN apply the keratin treatment followed by flat ironing?

Well, I had the same exact issue as well too with "Post a reply". When that happens, I switch from Explorer to Firefox or to Google Chrome, and that seems to work for me.

Once again the answer is a big YES - it is absolutely okay to use a neutralizer after Xtenso/TR, wash the hair and THEN apply the keratin treatment followed by flat ironing. And that is exactly what I do.
