Review: NAAT Brazilian Keratin Collection

I was recently given the amazing opportunity to test out the new Brazilian Keratin line of haircare products from nuNAAT.  I received 5 products from nuNAAT which included Keratin Daily Care Shampoo, Keratin Daily Care Conditioner, Brazilian Keratin Intensive Hair Mask, Liquid Keratin Leave-in Reconstructor, and the Serum Ultra Shine.

nuNAAT Brazilian Keratin Line

Below are my thoughts on each product individually based on performance and ingredients.  Be sure to read to the end for my before and after images!

Brazilian Keratin Deep Moisturizing Shampoo

Likes: Pleasant fragrance, Rinses away clean, Affordable (about $7 for 10.1 oz)

Dislikes: This product does not contain Keratin.  What it does contain, is a complex of hydrolyzed wheat, corn, and soy proteins that is referred to by the company as, “Green Keratin” and is a term patented by the company.  However, the product contains more fragrance than “Green Keratin” and uses more irritating ingredients than not, Cocamide MEA, for example.  Though the bottle does say this is a gentle cleansing formula- I do not recommend this for anyone with a sensitive scalp or irritating skin condition. Lastly, there is a warning on the bottle stating to keep the product in a cool, dry place which is more than inconvenient for anyone who brings their shampoo into the shower.

Brazilian Keratin Deep Conditioner for Damaged Hair

Likes: Pleasant fragrance, Binds well to the hair, Affordable (About $6 for 10.1 oz).  This Conditioner contains a very good amount of emollients and film forming ingredients that coat, protect, and soften the hair.

Dislikes: This product does not contain Keratin.  What it does contain, is a complex of hydrolyzed wheat, corn, and soy proteins that is referred to by the company as, “Green Keratin” and is a term patented by the company.  However, there is much more alcohol and fragrance in this conditioner than there is “Green Keratin.” In fact, there is hardly any “Green Keratin” in this conditioner at all to have any effect on the hair before it is rinsed down the drain.   Lastly, there is a warning on the bottle stating to keep the product in a cool, dry place which is more than inconvenient for anyone who brings their conditioner into the shower.

Brazilian Keratin Intensive Hair Mask

Likes: Pleasant Fragrance, Generous Quantity for the price (17.6 oz for $6)

Dislikes: This product does not contain Keratin.  What it does contain, is a complex of hydrolyzed wheat, corn, and soy proteins that is referred to by the company as, “Green Keratin” and is a term patented by the company.  However, there is much more alcohol and fragrance in this conditioner than there is “Green Keratin.”  Incidentally, if there was a good amount of beneficial ingredients in this hair mask, it would be undermined by the fact that it is packaged in a jar which would expose sensitive ingredients to the air, and to oils in our hands and fingers- destroying any beneficial properties.

Brazilian Keratin Serum Ultra Shine

Likes: Pleasant fragrance, leaves the hair shiny and more manageable without greasiness or waxiness.  $6 for 2oz and a little goes a long way so this should last anyone a while, even those with thick hair.

 Dislikes: This product does not contain Keratin nor does it contain “Green Keratin.” The inclusion of fragrance and Limonene make this a poor choice for anyone with sensitive scalp.

Liquid Keratin Leave-In Reconstructor

Likes:  Of the entire Brazilian Keratin line, this is nuNAAT’s stand-out product.  Though it does not contain Keratin, it does contain a substantial amount of nuNAAT’s patented “Green Keratin” formula made up of hydrolyzed soy, corn, and wheat proteins which are extremely nutritious for the hair and scalp.  This product is not a rinse-out product which means that the beneficial ingredients have time to sink into the hair and scalp and I saw and felt a difference in my hair immediately.  I have used this item on a daily basis since I have received it and have experienced what I believe is a dramatic change in my hair texture as the photos below demonstrate.  In my opinion, if nuNAAT should ever reformulate this line, they should do it with this product as its inspiration.  I will absolutely purchase this product again and again in the future.

Dislikes: None.

    I’m not sure I’ll be trying it. Kind of disappointed it doesn’t have Keratin in it. But the Leave-In Re-constructor sounds great!

      Hi Mandy! Thanks so much for reading my review! I agree, it’s a shame that the packaging is misleading due to the fact that the company counts its own blend of proteins as “Keratin.” However, I was truly impressed with the Re-Constructor and would recommend it to anyone I know! I will have to do a more extensive review on that product at another time.

    A friend of mine did a review with the NAAT products and the difference after using the product was amazing like yours but I think she used a different product. They are definitely something I would try if I had the money too. Thank you for the Weekly Giveaway #3
