I have frizzy hair. I also happen to have a ton of hair, it is coarse and wavy in nature. My hair often looks like a lion’s mane, as I describe it. So I was interested and curious to see how the NuNAAT line would perform when I was offered the chance to test it out.
This line is supposed to reduce volume and frizz. I actually like to have a certain amount of volume, since my hair tends to flatten out on top. However, the rest of my hair really does get “poofy”. And let’s talk frizz. My hair can get really frizzy. Ugh, I cannot stand the frizziness. It is just absolutely annoying. The best thing for me is to not wash my hair every day, but every other day as I wash away the natural oils that help to keep the frizziness at bay.
There are 5 products that are in the Brazilian Keratin Daily Care line. We have the Daily Care Shampoo, Deep Conditioner, Intensive Hair Mask, Liquid Keratin Leave-In Reconstructor and Serum Ultra Shine. I can tell you now that I liked a few products better than others and I was not really happy with all of them. Some were quite good. The items are good for all hair types, they work to repair cuticle damage on the hair, they work to regenerate and strengthen the hair fiber, they restore the natural shine and softness to the hair, they seal the hair cuticle, volume and frizziness are reduced, hair is resilient and more healthy and they are formaldehyde and sodium chloride free. This line is perfect for everyday use and is also great for those with chemically treated hair, such as color treated or chemically relaxed and straightened.
Here is a detailed review of :
NAAT Brazilian Keratin Daily Care Shampoo (10.01 oz.)
Formulated with mild surfactants, green keratin (which is resistant to rinsing and remains in the hair) and amino acids, all of which provide deep cleansing without being abrasive. It is a thinner formula and does have a lot of sudsing action. I felt that it took more shampoo than usual to get the lather I needed. I use a number of products in my hair, so I feel that I need a lot of shampoo for my thick lion’s mane of hair to get it clean. It does clean well though.
NAAT Brazilian Keratin Daily Care Conditioner (10.01 oz.)
Contains high-capacity conditioning ingredients so hair is easily untangled. The formula contains green keratin and amino acids. Reduces frizz and tames unruly hair. Designed for daily use. I found this thin for conditioner. Personally I prefer something a little bit thicker, but it did soften my hair. When I used this product alone with the shampoo instead of the Intensive Hair Mask, I found that my hair still had some frizz to it.
NAAT Brazilian Keratin Intensive Hair Mask (17.6 oz.)
This is applied after hair has been shampooed and rinsed in place of normal conditioner. The mask intensely hydrates and repairs hair fibers. Leave in for 10-20 minutes, then rinse well. To make hair even smoother, Deep Moisturizing Conditioner can be added to ends of hair after Intensive Hair Mask has been rinsed out. Use every one or two weeks, as necessary. For me, I think this is the star product. It really helps to keep frizz at bay. I used it more often, twice a week instead of just once a week. Love this!
NAAT Brazilian Keratin Liquid Keratin Leave-In Reconstructor (10.1 oz.)
This is a non-rinse formula leave in conditioner. Once a desired amount is applied to hair, leave in for a few minutes before blow-drying as usual. If used with a flat iron to seal hair cuticles, it will cause the keratin to effectively penetrate hair fibers. Designed for frequent use, or as needed. I don’t flat iron my hair but this is a great add on step for hair. I used with blow-drying and scrunching my hair to make it wavy. I found my hair is not as frizzy.
NAAT Brazilian Keratin Serum Ultra Shine (2 oz.)
The special silicone formula creates a film that protects hair against environmental damage, keeping it moisturized and providing extra conditioning, more shine and increased flexibility. This styling product can be used on wet or dry hair. Use a small amount and distribute evenly. Use as often as desired. This is similar to other silicone formulas. If used too much, it can make the hair greasy. If you really want to get rid of frizz, silicone is the way to go as it flattens the cuticle and adds shine. Just be careful and don’t add too much! This is one I like because the silicones are a little bit different than some of the usual ones I have tried, they are thinner and not as greasy on the hair.

All in all, there are a few items in this line I really like, the Intense Hair Mask, the Leave in Reconstructor and the Serum Ultra Shine. I would definitely recommend picking those up. NuNAAT products are available at select Walgreens and Wal-Mart stores, Beauty Supply stores and all Navarro MPharmacies.
