Hair Botox is an excellent way to tame unmanageable, frizzy hair without harsh chemicals. Hair Botox is not a typical hair straightening treatment that would make the hair perfectly straight. However, Botox-treated hair will be frizz-free, smooth, and glossy. It also takes less time to blow-dry and is much easier to manage.
Can You Do Hair Botox at Home?
While professional Hair Botox treatments usually provide the best results, applying Hair Botox at home will save you money. Hair salons typically charge about $250 for this treatment. Doing it yourself could save you $100 to $150.
Hair Botox products are considered perfectly safe, which is another reason to use them at home. There are no toxic fumes, which eliminates the need to perform the treatment in a well-ventilated area. It also isn’t necessary to wear a mask and gloves. Your scalp will not be irritated if you leave the product on for longer than recommended.
However, if you decide to give it a try, consider getting help from another pair of hands, because the flat ironing stage can be exhausting for your arms.
Always make sure to read the instructions thoroughly, as the processing steps for Botox hair products may differ.
The following is a list of several hair Botox products that are easy to apply yourself. The list includes some hair masks that provide Botox-like effects, without requiring the flat ironing stage.
