Brazilian Straightening Or Tannin? What You Should Know

Brazilian straightening or tannin treatment?
If you have long, frizzy hair and want it to be straighter, you can try Brazilian straightening or tannin treatments. Both of these treatments use tannins, which are polyphenols from plants.


They have many medical benefits, including anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. But while both straightening methods promise to give your hair a smoother, cleaner look, only Brazilian straightening is more permanent.

Alpha Tannin: This treatment uses a mixture of tannin and keratin, which works on the surface of the hair rather than changing its structure from the inside. When activated by heat, it rebuilds the hair fiber. It also helps tame frizzy and curly hair. It takes between one hour and three hours for a full head of straightened hair. Keep in mind that both treatments require washing and drying.

Tannin: The most common type of Brazilian straightening treatment uses tannins. Tannin, found in the skin of grapes and other fruits, is a form of polyphenol that promotes volume reduction and strengthening action. This treatment also uses a gel-like texture, which leaves your hair silky and smooth. The product also contains an ingredient called violet acid, which has coloring properties.

Magic Sleek: This hair straightening system uses a unique blend of ingredients, including amino acids, argan oil extracts and other natural extracts. These ingredients are combined with natural argan oil extract, which adds moisture to your hair. Apart from these ingredients, Magic Sleek also has other benefits that make it unique in the world of hair straightening products. This product can be a good choice for those who want to straighten their hair, but if you are on a budget, you may want to consider using this system before buying a Brazilian straightening kit.
