Straightening iron, curler, harsh chemicals and exposure to sunlight can leave your hair dry, weak, frizzy and unmanageable. Developed by US-based Amazon Series, Cysteine Complex Curl Softening Treatment (commonly known as cysteine hair treatment) is a recent, all-natural hair treatment program that repairs dull and frizzy hair to create a shiny, smooth, straight, celebrity-like look. Amazon Series’ products contain extracts from Amazon Rainforest’s plants and fruits that contain antioxidants and vitamins having intense moisturizing capabilities.
Cysteine is a semi-essential amino acid that is an important component of skin, hair and nails. Cysteine Complex works in synergy with hair’s existing proteins to restructure, soften, and release curls from hair. The healing capabilities of the Dendrobium Orchid absorb and eradicate free radicals. The reduction of curl volume is up to 60% on ethnic, virgin, and coarse hair, and up to 70% on Caucasian hair. This is a semi-permanent treatment that lasts for about four to six months. It makes hair more manageable by providing intense conditioning and moisturizing, and improving the overall quality and texture of hair. Cysteine is thought to be safer than traditional keratin treatments as it does not contain harmful additives like formaldehyde.
The process is composed of three basic steps. First, the hair is thoroughly shampooed using Amazon Series Pure Deep Cleansing Shampoo to remove all traces of oil and dirt. Next, the Cysteine Complex cream is applied to the hair in strands (except the roots) and held in a plastic film. The hair is rested in this condition for about half an hour. Finally, the hair is dried using a hair straightener to result in a smoother, sleeker hair. Post treatment, you will be given a deFabulous Reviver shampoo and conditioner along with an Amazon Series Açaí Oil for use. You may be advised to return to the salon for a shampoo and hair wash after 24 hours.
However, there are a few things to remember before you go for the treatment. If your hair has undergone a treatment in the past, wait for at least two months before getting cysteine done. It is advisable not to go for a swim during the first couple of days after the treatment. Frequent washing of hair will also strip off the treatment, so wash your hair only thrice a week. Also, make sure you color your hair before the treatment. Also, do not oil your hair regularly as it can fade the effect of the treatment. The use of Henna or Metallic Dyes before or after the Cysteine Complex Treatment is not recommended.
Aftercare and maintenance is essential to the life of the treatment. Reviver Hair Repair Shampoo and Conditioner along with KerAçaí will help extend the life of Cysteine Complex. It is strongly recommended that you use sulfate-free shampoo after the treatment as sulfate can result in fading of the effect. Finally, this treatment should be carried out only by trained hair experts.
