The capillary cauterization is a procedure that aims to repair the hair, with the end of finishing with it frizz, reduce volume and promote softness, hydration and shine. This is due to the fact that it is carried out using heat and keratin, which is a protein that preserves the structure of the hair.
The capillary cauterization, although it can be done at home, is recommended to be carried out in the beauty salon to guarantee the effects; in addition, when the keratin is used in excess, there may be hardening of the hair. The effect of the cauterization depends on the type, structure and response to the treatment, and it may be necessary to repeat it every month or every 3 months.
what is it for
Capillary cauterization is a treatment that promotes hair regeneration, indicated for those that are damaged, fragile, brittle or with open cuticles.
Hair regeneration takes place due to the liquid keratin used in the procedure, thanks to its effects, it allows vitamins and minerals to act with greater ease, favoring hydration, shine and smoothness of the hair.
Although it gives a smoother appearance to the hair due to the regeneration of the hair, the cauterization does not promote the smoothing; This is due to the fact that the products involved in this procedure do not contain chemicals, so they do not change their structure.
how is it done
The process to carry out the technique may vary slightly depending on the kit used by the professional; however, it generally includes the following steps:
- Hair wash: with appropriate anti-residue shampoo, with the end of opening the hair cuticle. This step serves to guarantee that the product is ready to receive and absorb the product from the cauterization;
- Keratin application: after washing, it is recommended to use a sealing cream or a conditioner combined with keratin ampoules;
- Heat usage: Finally, the thermal stage is carried out, which includes the cepillado and planchado del cabello. The plancha must be passed in fine wicks and each wick must be smoothed 5 to 6 times.
Depending on the brand used, after the planchado you can recommend washing it to remove excess product used, or you can indicate that the product remains in the hair for a few days.
In addition to professional hair cauterization, there is also hair cauterization at home, which consists of a homemade and more economical version of the technique, which can be carried out using the dryer or the plancha until the hair is well aligned. However, even in this case, it is recommended to consult a professional with experience who can evaluate the type of hair and its needs, before carrying out the procedure.
