NAAT Brazilian Keratin Product Review
I'll be the first to admit, I'm not one of those girls who spends hours a day on her hair. Once I take a shower and blow dry my hair, I am done for the day. Well, I may put a brush through it a few times a day, but I just don't have a lot of time to spend on my hair. After I blow dry and straighten my hair, I expect it to be good for the day – and if it's not, I tie it back and hope for the best. Part of the reason I don't put too much time into my hair is that it can very unmanageable – especially with our wonderful Ohio river valley weather that changes constantly – leaving my hair flat one day and the next, the frizziest mess you have ever seen. I had tried just about every product on the market to try managing my hair and found that very few of them worked for me. When I was asked to review NuNAAT's new line of products, I was hopeful that their NAAT Brazilian Keratin line would work for me. After using these products for the past months, I have to say I am quite surprised!
NAAT Brazilian Keratin Products
For those of you have never hear of this line, the NAAT Brazilian Keratin product line is designed to restore and nutritionally balance your hair – making it stronger, smoother, and more flexible. It does this by using all natural ingredients, including plant based green keratin. While this line of hair care products are designed for people of all hair types, they are perfect for people who have damaged, color treated hair – especially those of us who are fond of our hair dryer or straightener. As well, they are formaldehyde free.
NAAT Brazilian Keratin Products: Shampoo & Condition
Even though I know I'm not supposed to wash my hair daily, I'm guilty of shampooing and conditioning my hair daily. When I exercise, I can't stand the thought of having sweaty, nasty hair. The problem I have found with most shampoos and conditioners, however, is that they are too harsh for daily use. This usually leaves my hair feeling dry, nasty, and with very little shine – this was even more of an issue when I had longer hair. When I got my box of hair care products from nuNAAT, I was thrilled to find out it included a bottle of shampoo and conditioner that were meant for daily use.
First, let's talk about the NAAT Brazilian Keratin Daily Use Shampoo. Looking at the product information, it advertises that it only includes mild surfactants and amino acids, allowing you to have a deep cleaning shampoo without it being too abrasive for your hair. I found that after using this shampoo my hair felt less stripped and my scalp felt not only clean, but refreshed. If you have ever used a cheap shampoo, you likely know what I mean about all the oils being stripped. Your hair feels almost like straw and looks incredibly dull. A good product should leave your hair with a gentle shine but still clean out excess oil and dirt.
Usually, I expect my conditioner to help fix some of the damage caused by harsh shampoos. With NAAT Brazilian Keratin Daily Care Conditioner, your hair is given the extra moisture it needs, while still reducing frizz and unruliness. Having a lot of natural wave to my hair, this is important since most hair care products for my hair to curl in odd directions or tangle if I'm not very careful about how I deal with it after a shower. With these products, I feel confident letting my hair dry naturally or using a blow dryer – both leave my hair looking amazing after using these products!
NAAT Brazilian Keratin Products: Leave in Reconstructor
Out of all the products in the NAAT Brazilian Keratin product line, I have to say this one is my favorite! I had used no rinse conditioners in the past and had no success with them. I thought the main reason for it was that my hair was too fine for these conditioners, but now I know this isn't the case. The NAAT Brazilian Keratin Leave in Reconstructor Conditioner leaves your hair feeling extremely soft and it has the most wonderful shine. I use this most days instead of the Ultra Shine Serum since they give about the same results for me. It is very important, however, that you use a straightener with this product, since the heat seals the keratin into your hair cuticles. I have found that after I use this conditioner, along with the shampoo and conditioner, my hair is much more manageable and doesn't need any other styling products.
NAAT Brazilian Keratin Products: Ultra Shine Serum
When I first used the NAAT Brazilian Keratin Ultra Shine Serum, I had no clue what to think of it. After putting a small amount on my towel dried hair, I have to say it felt very heavy on my hair. While I really wanted to rinse it out, I decided to give it a chance. Thankfully, I didn't regret it! My hair was very easy to manage and had the most beautiful shine once I was finished blow drying and straightening my hair. My only suggestion from my own personal use, however, is not to use it on dry hair. I tried it both ways and found that with my fine hair it was a bit too heavy, leaving me thinking it has the best results if used with a straightener on slightly wet hair.
NAAT Brazilian Keratin Products: Intense Hair Mask
I'll be honest, I have only been able to try the NAAT Brazilian Keratin Intense Hair Mask a handful of times. When I did, I had great results. My hair was very smooth, but did have quite a bit of volume. With fine hair though, I think this is to be expected, especially since I think I used the product twice in a week (I didn't notice until after I was suppose to only use it every one to two weeks). I will say though that your hair feels great after using this product. My hair was extremely soft and really looked great, even though it was a bit on the poofy side.
NAAT Brazilian Keratin Products: Overall
Based on my own experience using the NAAT Brazilian Keratin line, I have to say that I love these products. My hair not only feels soft, but has the most beautiful shine. What impressed me the most, however, is that it is much more manageable during blow-drying and straightening. Based on my own experience, I give these products an A+ rating. They are fairly inexpensive and really make your hair looking amazing. If you want to have beautiful looking hair without spending an hour working with different beauty products, I highly recommend giving these products a try!
NAAT Brazilian Keratin Products: Where to Purchase
Currently, you can purchase any of NAAT Brazilian Keratin Products at Wal-Mart, Walgreens, Sally's Beauty Supplies, and other salon stores. At least, this is what they say on their website. I have not seen these products at Walgreens or Wal-Mart, however, and it may be based on where you live. I am planning on checking out our Wal-Mart again to make sure I'm correct, but I noticed that the store locator on their website didn't pull up any store in my area. Luckily, I noticed all five on the products in the NAAT Brazilian Keratin line are sold on Amazon.com! One thing is for certain, now that I've used these products I have a feeling I'm going to be buying more as soon as my bottles run out!
