NANO KERATIN TREATMENTS
The formula embeds a conditioning mesh into the cortex to reduce steps and allow for easier application, while improving smoothing performance.
Step one of the nano keratin treatment is the Uberliss Fiber Expander which offers a dual functionality of expanding the hair cuticle and inserting the conditioning crosslinker, di-amine.
Step two, Uberliss Fiber Restructure, penetrates the cortex and inserts the straightening active glyoxylic acid and the blend of nano technology keratin, cysteine and buriti. During heat application, crosslinks form between the di-amine and glyoxylic acid to create the mesh that keeps hair soft, silky and smooth for up to five months. The Uberliss Frizz Elixir is used before the final flat-ironing step to give thermal protection, add shine and control any remaining frizz.
One question I get is, “Is there formaldehyde or methylene glycol in nano keratin treatment in the technology system of Uberliss?”.
Of course not. Uberliss has never worked with formaldehyde or methylene glycol. The goal of the nano keratin treatment in Uberliss was to remove any formaldehyde since it was not good for your health or the industry. Some brands have 6%-7% methylene glycol in their products, but this is bad for your health and the health of your stylist. It’s been reported that the most popular brand, we all know it, emits about 23 to 25% of formaldehyde gas.
When you blow dry or flat iron, these fumes will affect your eyes, throat and nose. This is all documented by OSHA and health institutes. That is why I stay away from formaldehyde or methylene glycol. OSHA and EPA tell you that the nano keratin treatments that contain this ingredient are one and the same thing. Uberliss uses a compound called Glyoxylic Acid with a very low pH. Any fumes there and steam it produces is benign and, will not affect your health. For me, my health and the health of my clients is most important.
