With all the drama surrounding keratin treatments and the good, band and ugly of it all, we decided that we weren’t going to get caught up in the hype and hysteria. Yes keratin treatments are potentially dangerous and are akin to getting a Morticia Adams’ formaldehyde treatment for your hair — think 6 Feet Under: The Hair Salon — but we also realize that there is a positive side to keratin which is what we like focus on which also brings us to this conditioner.

Keratin is naturally found in hair so there is nothing wrong with dumping some good formulated keratin on top of what you’re already working with. Take for example, Proganix Smooth Acai Berry + HydraKeratin Conditioner. This conditioner is mixture of a blend of antioxidant rich acai (ah-sigh-EE) berry extract, aloe vera juice and hydrolyzed keratin (the good keratin) which gives you smooth strands. The keratin helps to smooth out frizziness and the acai (or a?a?) berry extract (besides smelling freaking awesome if you recall from Know Your Beauty Ingredients: A?a? Berry) contains magnesium, vitamins A, C, E and B, folic acid and zinc. Vitamins A, C, E and B are required for healthy hair growth and zinc helps to keep your roots strong and your scalp healthy which in turns helps minimize thinning hair.

Organix…excuse us Proganix also known as OGX (they are becoming the Prince of hair care) is big on the whole acai and keratin combination which in our books is a good thing. Stay away from toxic salon keratin treatments (do your research before you book at a salon that uses formaldehyde) and just pick up a bottle of this stuff to calm your curls and shut that frizz all the way down.
