What is QOD Brazilian Keratin?
QOD Brazilian Keratin is a revolutionary, keratin-based hair treatment originating in Brazil that truly transforms the hair. Keratin, the primary protein of hair, nails and skin, is a natural substance which helps return hair to its original healthy, shiny, smooth state. Unlike other techniques, straightening with QOD Brazilian Keratin replenishes the condition of the hair without changing or damaging its molecular structure. It can be used on all hair types.
There are several keratin treatments on the market: why should I insist on QOD Brazilian Keratin?
Several products that have been successful in the Brazilian Keratin scene still rely heavily on a low grade mix of raw, potent and potentially dangerous ingredients, together with a misleading marketing campaign.
QOD COSMETIC offers the most authentic, highest quality Brazilian Keratin products on the market today. Any stylist who has used QOD Brazilian Keratin products will tell you: they are more effective and last longer than other keratin-based treatments, producing significantly more volume-reduction and far more shine.
QOD COSMETIC is the dominant high-end cosmetics firm in Brazil � as well as most of South America. Ten years ago, QOD was the first major company to create a reliable and professionally produced Brazilian Keratin product - QOD MAX - which quickly became the best selling formula in Brazil. QOD products continue to be Brazil's most successful high-end keratin treatment formulations.
QOD COSMETIC has maintained its own scientific research facilities for years, and QOD Brazilian Keratin formulations have always been the industry's most advanced. Luxury-quality QOD GOLD was a break-through in the technology. It is made with a patented, 11 stage process which refines and concentrates ingredients to the maximum degree scientifically possible, processing 24-karat gold down to its smallest nano-particles. The gold is then able to permeate the hair, working in tandem with the keratin to bring about an un-paralleled transformation.
