B) What is Keratin?
Keratin is an extremely strong protein that is a major component in skin, hair, nails, hooves, horns, and teeth. The amino acids which combine to form it have several unique properties and, depending on the levels of the various amino acids, it can be inflexible and hard, like hooves, or soft, as is the case with skin. Most people interact with this tissue after it is actually dead; hair, skin, and nails are all formed from dead cells that the body sheds as new cells push up from underneath. If the dead cells are kept in good condition, they will serve as an insulating layer to protect the delicate new tissue below them.
Hair and nails on humans especially tend to become dry and brittle, because the dead keratin is being pushed to great lengths. In general, the thicker the layer of keratin, the healthier the hair or nail is, because the dead cells outside protect the living cells at the core. Keeping the external layer moisturized will also keep it healthy and prevent cracking and splitting, The unex Keratin Treatment process places a protective barrier of keraitn on each strand of hair, thus bringing the hair back to life in appearance and strength.
1) How can I chose the suitable kind of unex Keratin Treatment for my hair type – The difference between BIO, BTX, V2 and V1 ?
All of the treatments work to improve the quality of your hair by returning keratin ( a natural substance of the hair, skin and nails ) into the hair cuticle and revitalizing the feel, look and consistency of your hair combined with special unex Keratin hydrating ingredients to give a natural shine and fabulous texture to your hair. Please make sure that your hair is strong enough to endure an intensive treatment that involves much washing, blow drying and flat ironing at very high temperatures.

In other words, scent has nothing to do with it’s strength, enjoy the fragrances 🙂
21) Are there risks of color change when a client receives unex Keratin Bio treatments?
A: The unex Keratin Bio treatment is organic in nature and because of the natural acids within the main ingredient may cause the lightening of light haired colors. Please also take into consideration the use of the effect of clarifying shampoo and its fading of color is Clarifying Shampoo used as pre-treatment of the unex Keratin Bio Treatment for vibrant colored hairs.
Adding a color conditioner at the post process (after application) will remedy this issue (read further).
-Please use professional discretion when using the hot flat iron at high temperatures with platinum blond or fine haired clients.
For red hair: Known by all hair professionals, colored hair red is very fragile in keeping the color vibrant within the hair. Knowing this with the combined fact with every wash the color fades naturally and the fact that “Clarifying” shampoo is actually a very deep cuticle opening intensive cleaning process. This process will as said open the cuticle to remove residues and in this case loose color fragments from the hair.
To remedy this issue we suggest that after the final hair ironing is preformed to either:
a) Be sure to apply the treatment on hair 20-50% dry only.
b) Add color to the post shampoo or conditioner
c) Use a “color conditioner”
The PH levels in post shampoo and conditioner are designed to close the cuticles and seal the treatment within the hair. In this case it would be ideal to not only restore the color but also sealing the keratin treatment along with the color.
With all Brazilian Keratin Treatments, the ends of the hair if they are in need of a cut, will result in appearing more so in need of cutting. We suggest that hair be trimmed after the treatment to avoid this.
22) Can I maintain my natural curls and still enjoy the benefits of the unex Keratin Bio Treatment?
For those that want to maintain their hair curly:
The unex Keratin Treatment process depends on the most important step of the treatment process – the flat ironing process. It is only during this final step that the actual keratin is sealed into the cuticles of the hair. Only when this process is done successfully is when in fact the hair will become healthy, vibrant and without frizz. We can suggest that less ironing be applied during the process to attempt in trying to make the curls less straight. But, we cannot ensure that the curls will be eliminated because KC Bio will straighten the hair 70-90%. The best advice would be to use as indicated – A Flat Iron that reaches maximum heat of 430f/230c. After the treatment is complete you may choose to apply a hot curling iron to curl the hair and style.
23) Can I use any common Shampoo to wash my hair before the treatment?
Please realize that every step of the unex Keratin Bio treatment is to be performed just as indicated on the instructions. unex Keratin Clarifying Shampoo must be used to properly prepare the hair to receive the treatment. Our Clarifying Shampoo was designed to deep clean the hair unlike common shampoo can offer. Clarifying Shampoo opens the hair culticles and removes residue that commonly hides deep within the hair. Without this proper deep cleansing, the hair will not properly receive the keratin treatment and the entire treatment will fail. We also suggest the following steps to ensure that the Pre-Shampoo process is performed correctly:
a) For those that have never received a Keratin Treatment:
Please wash the hair up twice and leave on the hair well lathered and brush hair with the shampoo still on and leave on from 7-10 minutes.
b) For very thick hair, coarse hair and tight curls – wash the hair up to 3 times, brush hair with the shampoo still on and leave on the hair well lathered 7-10 minutes.
24) Why did I have white flakes on my hair and or scalp after the treatment?
A: If you have noticed white flaky material on the scalp or hair after the treatment as a result to saturating (using too much product) the hair with treatment. We ask that you use only what the hair needs to successfully apply the treatment. Start application at 1/4 from the root and avoid applying the treatment to the scalp. This is because the flat iron cannot usually be applied too closely to the scalp and not because the treatment is at all damaging. Flaking occurs as a result to product that has not received the heat necessary.
Note: Using unex Keratin Post Conditioners when you wash your hair (following Shampoo) and leaving it on the hair for a full 2 minutes balances the pH levels of your hair and avoids dandruff.
25)Should I use Clarifying Shampoo as shown on the first step for the next time I have another Bio Treatment? Will it damage my hair treatment?
Yes! It is essential that you follow the instructions for the treatment in the correct manner each time you receive a new treatment. Clarifying Shampoo will do a necessary deep cleaning to your hair by removing impurities and product build up from the hair shafts. Styling products, such as hair mousse, hair gel, hair spray, conditioners and even daily shampoos can cause buildup on the hair over time.unex Keratin Clarifying shampoo will help remove the buildup and prepare the hair for a clean start and complete necessary preparation for the unex Keratin Treatment. Damage caused by Clarifying Shampoo to the treatment happens when clients mistakenly use this as a daily hair wash instead of Post Treatment Shampoo as recommended only for after-care.
26) What is the difference between Biological and Bio-Brazilian Formulas?
A: The texture of Biological is liquid based and the Gold & Honey product has a pure honey scent. After much of your feedback we decided to make a creamier formula. Bio-Brazilian is creamy in texture and no longer has a honey scent but a glamorous new designer scent. Also, Bio-Brazilian has a much less chance of color change as Biological. These and the addition of Argan Oil to the active ingredients. The strengths are the same. We appreciate your feedback and we work to improve our formulas with your input! Also, the scent has been changed and its just beautiful!
26) What is the validity/ expiration information for unex Keratin Products?
