It's not Permanent: The result fades progressively with every wash. With other permanent systems the previously straightened hair does not need to be treated again, with this system the whole head has to be treated again. A specialist Shampoo and Conditioner without Sodium-Chloride (Sulfate-Free) is available which helps prolong and maintain the effect.

With virgin (previously uncoloured or processed) hair the result may fade faster.
BRAZILIAN KERATIN TREATMENT FOR AFRO -CARIBBEAN HAIR
You like your hair straight, but you're looking for alternatives to pressing, ironing or relaxing to get that glossy mane you want. Maybe you want to try a keratin treatment, which has become increasingly popular in recent years.
Known by several different names, including Brazilian Keratin Treatment (BKT for short, an acronym you'll often see on various hair forums) and Brazilian straightening treatment, as well as various brand names, this is the newest craze for getting silky straight hair.
Is a BKT suitable for black hair and if so, what can you expect?
Natural: Brazilian straightening treatments don't have the tried-and-true chemicals you'll find in typical black hair relaxers, such as sodium hydroxide or calcium hydroxide, or chemicals you'll find in curling perms like ammonium thioglycolate. Your hair is straightened with the active ingredient keratin, a protein very like one of the components of human hair. Keratin works to "naturally" straighten the hair. Fans of the treatment claim that it actually strengthens the hair since keratin is so similar to hair's natural protein.
Previously Processed Hair: Anyone who relaxes her hair knows that some coloring processes are especially harsh on top of already processed hair. You also can't apply a relaxer to previously relaxed hair without worry of over processing. However, a keratin treatment works well on colored, highlighted or previously processed hair.
