The Keratin Hair Treatment is a popular method of straightening frizzy and curly hair. It’s considered a natural method of hair straightening since no harsh chemicals are used. However, customers who have done the treatment reported heavy hair loss as a side effect.
During treatment, the keratin is applied on the hair, followed by a hot iron. Immediately after treatment, your hair is full of shine and luster. Given the increasing popularity of the treatment it seems safe, but that’s not always the case and the most severe side effect is hair loss.
If not properly done, the keratin treatment can lead to breakage, shedding, and ultimately hair loss. The hair loss can be so overwhelming that a thinning pattern can be seen within weeks of treatment. It’s best to undergo a few tests with your doctor first to rule out other causes unrelated to this treatment.
To treat your hair loss, you must figure out the root of the problem. The most common causes of hair loss is male pattern baldness, pregnancy, damaged hair, stress, and medications. Bosley suggests that you visit your doctor as soon as possible to determine the cause of your hair loss.
