Encanto Brazilian Keratin Treatment

(Manhattan)

Do you realize formaldehyde is in so many things that we don't even think about? Yes, we need to take the proper precautions, but let's not freak out.
Can I just say that BKT is from heaven? I got my first treatment at a salon 2 years ago for $280! It took like 3 days for the whole treatment to be done, but I really like my hair.

Last month, I bought the Encanto Brazilian Keratin Treatment brand on ebay. WOW. BEST EVER. Seriously, it was really inexpensive, and only took a couple hours for the whole thing to be over! My mom did it for me, and I was very satisfied. Personally, I feel like the Encanto Treatment gave me more shine. Also, Encanto has a facebook fan page where if you join and post your questions or comments, they give you 5% off any purchase!

encanto is my choice of BKT
by: Tanya Weston

I am a print model based in Atlanta Georgia. This product works wonders for my coarse, 4a hair. I totally recommend it for anyone wishing for low-maintenance hair style that turns heads. The shine is incredible. Encanto is definitely the best brand I've used. READ directions. you don't have to spend a lot of money on great hair. skip the salon. Also, they have a crazy following on facebook...and a nice looking website.

The bad reviews made me chuckle.
by: Sherelle

Okay ladies... First off, I would like to say that I am not affiliated with this company at all, however I am very knowledgeable when it comes to keratin as I am a licensed hair "artist". With that said, I have used Encanto religiously on my own hair and my clients' hair for almost 4 years now.

First piece of advice? Don't be stupid! Follow the instructions EXACTLY. I had a client's sister tell me her friend had used Encanto's post treatment as a CONDITIONER and was wondering why her scalp was burning and her hands felt funny afterwards. The Post treatment is not an after care routine...consider it like a step-two of the treatment. It still needs to be treated with caution. Don't try to diverge from the instructions because you think you're smarter....because then it's only your fault.

At one point Encanto was selling an after-care set, but I believe they have been all sold out for sometime now.
Now, for the smarty that points out lack of "company information"...I personally have spoken with an Encanto representative on 3 different occasions. Their US office is based in Hagerstown, MD (which you can see on the mailing address) and they work with importing factories from Chicago. They also have a branch in central Brazil (which sells only throughout that country).

The thing I like most about this company is that I feel they are very honest. The lady I spoke to made a comment referring to the bad reviews focusing on the inexpensive price. She kind of laughed and said, "if our customers would like, we could rip them off and sell it to them for 4x the price!" she then added that keratin is one of the most inflated products on the market right now and don't believe in the quality just because of the high price.

Overall they have been very pleasant and helpful to my questions over the phone and they are one of the few companies that will ship worldwide.

I will add that not everyone's hair is made the same way. With that said, this is not a 100& foolproof formula just like ANY other experimental product you'd buy. Just because it didn't work for Jane Doe, does not mean it wouldn't work for you.

I have found however that some people just like to complain. That's all ladies! Have a blessed day!

I am facinated by this product
by: Anonymous

We must see ourselves like beautiful stars. This product is strong but very good and by taking proper precautions it will not cause much problem as pointed out! If it applied in a place with sufficient ventilation nothing happens. Personally, I have applied twice every eight months.

This Product Has Worked Wonders on My Hair
by: Liz

I am Hispanic with wavy, frizzy hair and I live in hot and very humid South Florida. I bought this product last year from e-bay and did the treatment in my balcony with a fan blowing towards my face from start to finish. Yes, the first time I did the treatment, it was fumy and it irritated my throat a little. But four months later I redid the treatment and used a bandana that I wrapped around my none and mouth and it helped alleviate the fumes. I just finished my third treatment in a year last week since summer is right around the corner and the humidity level is rising.

I must say that it has been the best thing I have done for my hair. The sponginess and frizz is gone and my hair has volume and shine.
It is important to follow the instructions exactly and use in a very well ventilated area.
For those of you having problems with the product and/or the results, the following observations might be useful.

When doing the flat ironing, make sure that the moment you close the blades on your hair you immediately run it through to the ends. Clamp and draw. If the flat iron stays in one place for too long, it can burn the hair. You are using very high heat so please keep this in mind. Also, some hair types can take higher heat than others. I don't know what temperature setting I use since my flat iron has a numbering system from 1 to 25. I usually set it at 20 and it works for me as my hair is easily damaged with heat styling.

I have watched you-tube videos where the flat iron is producing steam. On my type of hair it would fry it so I prefer a lower setting. I have no problems at a lower setting and the product seals well and last at least 3 months in summer (about 4 months during the less humid months of the "Florida winters".

love it
by: Daphne

I have used this treatment for almost a year.
I am 41 and do it myself. I am in no way a part of the company so let me say that right off.

you HAVE to follow the instructions to the letter, if you leave too much conditioner in, yes your hair will smell. and yes the fumes are very hard to deal with however they DO tell you to use ventilation in the instructions.

I am bi racial and my hair has always been very thick and very curly. I can do this treatment, takes about 5 hours from start to finish and maybe run around my living room a few times with the ceiling fan on, and then I'm done.

I love it, I will always use it. I think those with problems are looking for a reason to have one. I personally have nothing but good things from it, no breakage nothing. Actually my hair is longer than it has been since I was a teen.

Regards
And for those with issues I do hope you find what works for you. I certainly did.

Well Worth It!!!!
by: Anonymous

Ive read pros & cons regarding this product. I just like many others had mixed feeling about it but went ahead & purchased it through ebay (3pc for $48). I have the procedure done & I'm in love with the results.
Yes its fummy but nothing to die over. The treatment itself took about 3 hours doing all the steps it required. I have long (waist line) & curly hair. I totally loved the result. I personally have no complains whatsoever.

My hair is smooth, shinny, silky-could not have asked for anything better & the price was well worth it.
I do wash my hair with sulfate free shampoo & conditioner, it allows the product to last longer. Its been 2 1/2 months. My hair has actually grown more & is super healthy.

Not worth risking your health!!!!!!!
by: Anonymous

My daughter bought me this as a gift and I was soooooo excited about it but being the health nut that I am I decided to look into it before going ahead - I am so glad I did, this product is not good for you, why would you risk major health problems in exchange for smooth hair (and believe me I really wanted to - my hair is unruly to say the least) I have been told by hair dressers NOT to do it!! and the Internet is a great source of information. Get Informed before you do it!! Not sure what I'm gonna do with it now.

PS - Thanks to all of you for the comments - it helped me to decide that its NOT worth it!! and the comment about where the company is and trying to get a hold of them is right!! VERY SUSPICIOUS!!

Hair falling off and constant noise in my ear
by: Anonymous

Me and a friend heard about this product so we both bought it and did it to each other. My friend is a hairdresser and showed me how to do it.

A week after the treatment, we both started to notice MAJOR hair breakage. Lots of hair even 3 months later. People, You have to wonder WHY THIS PRODUCT COST $48 When all other treatments cost over $200.
Please do your research. It is not worth ruining your health to save a few $$. Go with known brands without Formaldehyde. A week after the treatment, I started having a continuous noise in my ear like I could hear my heart beat in my ear (some product leaked in my ear while rinsing my hair). I went to see an ENT, I was diagnosed with TINNITUS. I never had problems with my ears whatsoever. No health problems at all. I am in the process to find out if the product could have been the cause of this. Me and my ENT are investigating.

This product might make your hair look nice at first but 3 other people I know used it and experienced major breakage.

DONT BELIEVE ALL THE POSITIVE quotes you read about this products. Might not be users who wrote them.

PS: Have you noticed you cannot even find out where this company is and where the products are coming from?! Words to the wise.

Help!!!!
by: Anonymous

I bought this product on ebay. Seeing how on FB everyone was satisfied and no major complaints other than the Fumes, I did it. I loved how at first it turned out. Not completely straight but it beat the time I use to take flat ironing my hair from an hour to 15-20 min. It's been about two weeks in now and little by little realized my hair is looking dry and very unhealthy. To make matters worse my scalp is so itchy and my hair is falling off in strands (yes from the roots) and breaking (yes in pieces) at the same time. Thats a double whammy!!I'm scared touching my hair just because I see the stands of hair that come through my fingers. I don't want to go bald!!!! PLEASE HELP!!!!

Caution
by: Anonymous

I bought this product through e-bay. I read lots of peoples comments on face book, before buying this product. Warning very strong fumes. My eyes and throat were burning during the entire treatment.I am really scared to use this product. I recommend use Liquid Keratin .

Love it!
by: Sharon

I also bought the 3 pc. set on Ebay. I did the treatment 6 days ago and I absolutely love it! Yes, you do need a well ventilated area. I didn't think I needed it, but the fumes did come in waves. It bothered my eyes and sometimes throat, but not my scalp.

The process took about 4 hours, but I have really thick hair and the blow drying took a long time.
I think one of the worst part was the shampoo/ comb out without conditioner. That was torture!
I really didn't believe this would work, but after the second blow dry step, I knew it was working.

My hair usually takes about 30 minutes to dry on high heat. This step took less than 15 min. and my hair was really tame already. After the flat iron, it was like glass!! I've never had my hair so under control. I've washed it 3 times since, and now the blow drying took 6 minutes this morning! My hair is so straight that I haven't even used the flat iron since the initial treatment. I don't think I could get my hair any straighter with the flat iron!
So now I go from wet hair in the towel to straight, silky and dry in under 10 minutes.
INCREDIBLE!

Use Caution!!
by: Anonymous

I used the Encanto brand of Brazilian Keratin approximately 6 months ago. A few days after I used it I developed a very enlarge gland behind my ear, which the doctor identified as having been caused by the treatment. It was REALLY burning my throat and my eyes but stupid me...I kept going. My lymph gland is still enlarged and I am going back to the doctor on Thursday because I just found out about the formaldehyde scare.

I didn't like the experience with the product.
by: Anonymous

Hi, i bought the product and i used it today, but my hair is not shiny, and has a very horrible smell, even in a very ventilated area. I felled the product very strong i was like my head was burning with the conditioner, it was very wild and i not not think that i am going to used anymore.

Disappointed
by: Anonymous

I bought this product through Ebay and was very hopeful after reading many comments and doing my research. The smell (even with a face mask) was so horrible I could feel my throat burning, but I toughed it out. I had a window open and a fan going on high. I followed the instructions exactly, and have no problem coloring my own hair or anything else hair related, so wasn't concerned about finding someone to help me, and can't imagine making anyone else suffer through that smell anyway. It is now two weeks later, and the curl is back, the frizz is back, and it was never straight to begin with. I feel like I suffered through an incredible process for nothing.

Amazing Product!!!
by: Tommie Burns

This product is AMAZING! I first heard of the Brazilian blowout in a magazine and so I had the service done professionally. I loved it, but couldn't see spending $300 a pop on my hair. After careful research and comparison I came across the Encanto Brazilian Keratin Treatment.

This product is perfect. Not only is the initial investment (product and straightener) less than my one treatment in the salon, I would say it is 10 times better. It has more shine, the smell is not overpowering, and the treatment has lasted longer than the professional (I"m going on 2 months)

This product is amazing and I recommend to everyone who has naturally curly hair and wants it straight.

Enchanted with my Hair!
by: Diana McCrory

After researching for a year, I ordered Encanto Brazilian Keratin 2 weeks ago. It arrived in 3 days. Well that's a good start.

I followed instructions and it took me 4 hours. But the shine was wonderful.With 2 large fans for ventilation, the over-all process wasn't too bad. My husband loves to run his fingers through my hair now.

Knowing that I shampoo at will, I waited 3 days. I flat-iron the odd pieces when I awoke in the mornings. After my first shampoo and blow-dry I was amazed. So many compliments about the shine and texture.

I've ordered the January special buy 2 kits and get 3rd kit free! Try it you'll love it just like me! Happy Tresses :)
