There is so much talk about Global Keratin treatments for straightening. It is almost like a miracle drug that helps take the frizz and curls out of your hair for up to 5 months! We know all of you have questions on various keratin treatments and have decided to profile the Global Keratin with Juvexin today.
The Global Keratin Treatment with Juvexin is formulated to straighten the hair and leave it shiny, silky and manageable. The Global Keratin treatment is specifically formulated as a revitalizing and rejuvenating Keratin treatment that eliminates frizz and curls (similar to the Brazilian Treatment). Global Keratin includes Juvexin. What is Juvexin you ask? It is a naturally derived protein similar to the structure of hair, which bonds to the surface and penetrates strands. Sounds Great!
So what is the deal with Formaldehyde and Global Keratin treatments? I know many of you are concerned with putting Formaldehyde in your hair. I found that Global Keratin has 3 different versions of their treatment according to your hair type which is genius!
- Wavy Hair, Formaldehyde Free!!
- Curly Hair, 2% Formaldehyde
- Coarse, Extremely Curly Hair, 4% Formaldehyde
The Global Keratin also comes in Strawberry, Chocolate, and Acai. Just different scents. How fun! We posed some questions to Global Keratin and found out much more about the treatment. Read on.
Q. What is JUVEXIN?
A. JUVEXIN is the ONLY keratin compound scientifically proven to protect and restore hair back to its youthful state.
Q. Why is JUVEXIN different than other keratins?
A. Other products in the market today are made with hydrolyzed or over processed keratin where the long chains of amino acids are broken and the capability of the protein to bind to the hairs natural keratin is destroyed.

Q. Do I always have to wear my hair straight or can I style my hair?

A. Global Keratin Hair Taming System with JUVEXIN is a Keratin based system with straightening capabilities that naturally washes out in 3 to 5 months. It protects and restores the hair without using harsh chemicals. Relaxers and Japanese straightening work on breaking and rearranging the internal bonds of the hair. Once these processes are done, the hair is permanently straightened. The new growth of the Japanese straightening will always be curly, but the previously straightened hair will never revert or blend back.
I had my 1st treatment done on 9/30/11. I am black and my hair has been natural (no chemicals) for 2 years so it has a coiled, z-pattern curl. The stylist suggested the “coarse” formula and my hair was and still is soft, silky, and beautiful. I didn’t wash for 4 days and I too also use sulphate free products. I was my hair weekly and I haven’t had ANY problems in 3 weeks. It used to take at least 45 minutes to dry my hair. Now it only takes 5-7mins!!! This alone is worth it to me. If I left it air dry, my hair has a soft s-curl pattern. I use the serum daily from root to ends. I truly recommend this product. Make sure you research your stylist’s credentials before having this applied. Just because someone is a stylist doesn’t mean they thoroughly know about this product. For my lenght of hair (mid-back), I paid $220 and I love the flexibility this gives me AND it isn’t a chemical. 5 stars!!
I’m so disappointed, with this treatment,. I was so excited about it, I just wanted to be able to style my hair easier and get some shine, even if I had curl still. Instead my hair is so dry and frizzy looking and my ends are breaking off, and I had 2 inches cut off right before the treatment. I could cry and have, my hair is horrible, and to top it off it’s so dull looking too. I spent a lot of money, dealt with a headache for 4 days from the chemical,to have my hair look horrible. NEVER get this done, it’s not worth it. And yes, I do use the recommended sulfate shampoo too.
My stylist has recomended that I use Pureology Antifade complex shampoo & conditioner, not quite sure about it , they are sulphar free but should I not stick to the GK products? This is my first GK treatment and not too sure hoe to take proper care – please if someone could offer me advice… thank-you
The GK products are designed to go with the treatment, but that doesn’t mean they’re the only products that work with it. Pureology is great stuff! If you like what it’s doing with your hair, it’s fine to use.
