What is tannin smoothing?

Tannin straightening is the process of straightening the hair using a treatment that is based on the natural element tannin. This process is safe, effective, and has the ability to restore strength to the hair fiber and preserve it. It also provides protection against pollution. Also, it can be used on all hair types.

This method is ideal for people with curly or afro hair. Treatment can last from three to six months. This is due to the fact that the product works by restructuring the hair fiber at the molecular level. As a result, the hair is smooth, soft and shiny.

Tannins are polyphenols found in plants and fruits. They have antioxidant properties and give hair strength and flexibility. They are well known for their anti-inflammatory effects.

They are also very effective in restoring volume to damaged hair. They also prevent the formation of dandruff. Tannins are also said to have antimicrobial properties. They are obtained from grapes, grape skins and various tree barks.

There are many tannin-based hair treatment products on the market. These products contain polyphenols and require heat to work. These treatments can be applied to all hair types and are more effective and safer than most chemical hair straightening products. The treatments are also less invasive than Brazilian and Japanese straightening.

In addition to restructuring the hair, the tannin smoothing is nourishing and moisturizing. It also brings a unique shine and a silky touch.

How to style your hair after tannin straightening?

Dry your hair with a hair dryer after washing it, but avoid using hair products after the first shampoo. You don't need sprays, mousses, hairsprays or gels to straighten your hair after a tannin straightening.
