Bleaching my hair a number of times has left it with a somewhat straw-like consistency. 'Hay-esque' might be an appropriate term. So, in order to restore some moisture and discourage random passers-by from assuming I am wearing horse feed on my head, I tried out the NAAT Brazilian Keratin Collection by nuNAAT, which is recommended for daily use on chemically processed hair.
The collection includes-
L to R: Deep Moisturizing Shampoo, Deep Conditioner, Liquid Keratin Leave-in Reconstructor, Intensive Hair Mask and Serum Ultra Shine.
- Works with all hair types
- Repairs cuticle damage
- Regenerates and strengthens hair fibers
- Restores natural shine and softness
- Seals hair cuticles
- Reduces volume and frizz
- Makes hair resilient and healthy
- Formaldehyde and sodium chloride free
From the very first time using the Deep Moisturizing Shampoo and Deep Conditioner, I noticed the texture of my hair change. It was silkier and much easier to comb through. I then used a small amount of the Liquid Keratin Leave-in Reconstructor and allowed it to dry naturally. I had a lot less frizz than usual and my hair was a LOT more hydrated. Usually you don't notice results this drastic after the first use, but honestly nuNAAT surprised me.
I have used the Serum Ultra Shine a couple of times, but I have extremely fine hair and it seems to weigh it down a bit. I think I may be using too much, because it's concentrated stuff. The serum is specifically designed to be used with a flat iron, as the heat activates the ingredients and locks in shine.
The Intensive Hair Mask is really creamy and thick and hydrates well. I put it in before having a nice, long bath and then washed it out in the shower. It detangled my hair effortlessly and left it feeling soft and smooth.

I really like the scent of all the products, it's light and sweet without being too strong. I think companies these days are realising that a lot of women don't like strong, overpowering scents (like Granny florals!) and are adjusting their products accordingly. I also like the fact that their products are formaldehyde and sodium chloride free.

Overall, I felt that the NAAT Brazilian Keratin Collection really did make a big difference to my hair. It's noticeably softer, smoother and easier to comb through. There's less frizz and my hair is more manageable. I do wish I could get a bit more shine to my hair, but I know that the lighter your hair is, the less shine you get anyway. I think I'll have to use a lighter hand when applying the serum and see if that improves the result I get. If you are looking to restore moisture and lessen frizz, I think this is a great haircare collection. It may not be ideal for oily or very thin hair, as it is designed to reduce frizziness, which may weigh down those hair types.
