Flat Irons for Brazilian Keratin Treatments

When performing the Brazilian Keratin Straightening treatment (BKT), the Keratin Complex by Coppola Treatment, the Global Keratin Treatment, or any other Keratin based treatment the straightness of your hair is only as good as the flat iron you are using.  We have reviewed a number of flat irons and straightening irons and have found the best flat irons to get your locks silky straight. These flat irons will help to activate the Keratin treatments and create longer lasting results.

What to look for?
Titanium Plates
When straightening your hair with any Keratin treatment your flat iron plates must be made with titanium. Titanium has an unbelievable ability to retain high heat. Most ceramic surfaces will loose heat as soon as you start to iron. The titanium plates will retain the heat once you start straightening.  This will result in that beautiful shine on your hair.

450 Degrees or Above
In order to activate the keratin in the treatment the temperature of the flat iron temperature should be approximately 450 degrees. Normally when ironing your hair you honestly don’t need anything above 400 degrees or so but when doing the Keratin treatment it is important to have an iron that can go up 450 degrees.

      No CHI irons are not recommended. Your iron must go upto 450 degrees and be titanium for the best results. CHI is ceramic and only goes up to 390 degrees.

    I just got a Brazilian Blowout and my hair is way to straight. Is there a way to achieve the relaxing results without the stick straightness?

      Hi Nicole,
      The straightness should ease within time. I would suggest the next time you get it done that you tell the stylist you don’t want it stick straight. If the stylist has been trained they should know how relax it the right way so it is not pin straight.
