Botox, or botulinum toxin, is a substance that is used to temporarily paralyze or weaken the muscles in the face. It is most commonly used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. In the context of hair, some salons offer a treatment called “hair botox,” which involves applying a botox-like substance to the hair and using heat to seal it in. The treatment is supposed to smooth and soften the hair, reduce frizz, and add shine.
It is important to note that while keratin and botox treatments can both improve the appearance and health of the hair, they work in very different ways and have different ingredients. Keratin treatments use a protein-based solution to repair and strengthen the hair, while hair botox uses a botox-like substance to temporarily smooth and soften the hair. Before getting either treatment, it is important to do your research and understand the potential risks and benefits.
