Botox For Your Hair? Yes, This Is Seriously A Thing

rik rak - post
Okay, don't freak out just yet. It’s not like hair stylists are injecting Botox into people’s heads. Although for a time there, some did think the filler could help with hair loss. But that’s not what this particular Hollywood secret is about. In the same way that Botox helps smooth out wrinkles on your face, HairBotox takes the damaged strands and smooths out the surface of your locks — hence the Botox reference.
And now that the rejuvenating product has made its way to Miami salon RikRak, you can try it out for yourself. How does it work, you ask? The process starts with a clarifying shampoo, making sure your strands are extra-clean, with zero residue. The HairBotox product is then applied to the hair, section by section, which should take approximately 45 minutes. Once the hair has absorbed all the protein and antioxidants, it is then washed with sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner, and styled as desired.

The promises are similar to the offerings of Keratin treatments: silky, smooth, frizz-free hair. But this product is actually eco-friendly and 100% formaldehyde-free — meaning, no scary gas mask required.
Where: Available at all RikRak Salon locations; Price starts at $150 and increases depending on length and thickness of hair.
