If you're one of many people who struggle with thinning, fine hair, you might not realize that you have options. Instead of putting up with your situation, why not consider a trendy new treatment? A treatment called "Hair Botox" increases youthfulness, tightens, and enhances fullness in your hair without injections or surgery.
If you have been looking for a new hair treatment, you should consider trying out hair botox. This new trend has become the talk of the town, but not everybody knows what it is and how it works. Nue glow is here to help you with everything you need to know about this revolutionary treatment.
What a Hair Botox Treatment Involves
Hair botox is a fancy name for a chemical hair straightening treatment. It involves injecting a chemical into your scalp, which then reacts with the keratin in your hair to create new bonds between the strands. Those bonds are more potent than they would be, resulting in straighter, smoother hair. Hair Botox can reduce frizz as well as breakage.
Some people think this sounds pretty painful, but it's not as bad as you think. The injections are small and shallow, so there's no need for any sedation or anesthesia unless you have an extreme aversion to needles.
How Botox Works on Hair
The hair follicles and surrounding tissue absorb botox injections into the scalp. Once absorbed, these toxins deactivate the hair follicle and stop the growth cycle. It allows each strand of hair to rest, resulting in less breakage and split ends over time.
The results are subtle but noticeable: your hair will feel stronger and healthier after one treatment. It's also great for treating hair loss, thinning hair, and preventing excessive sweating from your scalp.
The Effects of a Botox Treatment
The effects of a botox treatment are instant and long-lasting. After one treatment, you will notice an improvement in your hair's thickness and volume. Your hair will also appear healthier than before the treatment. You'll get all this without resorting to harsh chemicals or damaging heat tools.
