At Kerarganic, we believe that nature is the most powerful source of ingredients that can be used for hair care, and that’s why we chose to share the ancient secrets of #Cacao. To tap the power of cacao to beautify your hair, we have created our newest Kakawa Hair Health Rescue Collection.

Cacao is the seed of an exotic fruit indigenous to Central America so revered by the ancient Mayans and Aztecs that its seeds were actually used as money. Nowadays, cacao beans are primarily grown in Africa, Asia, Central and South America. Cacao beans come from a plant called Theobroma cacao, which means "food of the Gods". No doubt, this is a perfect name for them as given its numerous benefits.

Cacao is considered nature’s antidepressant since it contains dopamine and serotonin, both enzymes promote a good mental health. Cacao also contains magnesium which is essential for a healthy heart, as it decreases the risk of blood clots which reduces the risks of strokes and heart attacks. Besides these two key components, cacao is also the richest fruit when we talk about antioxidants, having a total of 621 different types of antioxidants.
After learning about how cacao is important to our general health, let’s connect the benefit of cacao for a healthy hair. It is important to first mention that cacao contains fat, proteins, tannins, vitamins, minerals, organic acids and among other components that are needed for the nutrition of the scalp and hair follicles, as well as improvement to the hair structure.

With all the hair benefits that cacao provides, we have created the KAKAWA COLLECTION, which is specialized for damaged and weakened hair, including hair loss. The KAKAWA COLLECTION contains one of the highest levels of antioxidants than any other natural products, this is great for adding vibrancy, shine, volume and helping with hair growth. How does it work? Cacao activates the blood circulation of the scalp, stimulating hair follicle which turns out to be a natural remedy to grow hair faster. Hair appearance will also be improved due to regular cocoa application – it will become thick, silky and give it a natural shine. KAKAWA also works to prevent split ends and reanimate dull and brittle hair.

We included 4 products to the KAKAWA COLLECTION, each having cacao as the main ingredient, which indeed makes this hair care line a true treasure.

For your daily / regular use

Our KAKAWA HAIR HEALTH RESCUE SHAMPOO is an amazing blend of cacao derivatives and other plant-based ingredients designed to restore health to damaged hair. As a plus, this Shampoo is Salt & Sulfate-Free, so it cleans gently while maintaining and adding nutrients for a healthy vibrant hair.

The next step is the KAKAWA DEEP HIDRATING CARE CONDITIONING CREAM, which has been formulated with highly moisturizing and conditioning natural agents, capable of penetrating deeply into the layers of the hair shaft and immediately replenishing loss nutrients. Working in synchronicity with UV and heat protection ingredients, this protective barrier holds harmful agents at bay, keeping hair healthy and vibrant.

For weekly or bi-weekly use

To return your hair to its natural health after the assaults from environmental pollution and chemical treatments, we have created our KAKAWA RESIDUE REMOVAL SHAMPOO. Its job is to remove accumulated residues from the scalp and hair strands and to open the cuticles to facilitated deeper penetration of nutrients of our KAKAWA INTENSIVE CARE MASK.
Our KAKAWA INTENSIVE CARE MASK is the most powerful and sophisticated blend of natural ingredients, engineered to recover the most damaged hair strands. It has an extra dosage of cacao derivatives (vital nutrients, essential vitamins, oils and plant extracts) which will help repair, nourish, protect and strengthen the hair fibers, making your hair softer, silkier and shinier than ever before.
Give yourself the hair you’ve always dreamed of with our KAKAWA COLLECTION.

Chemical hair relaxers are cosmetic products designed to straighten extremely curly, coiled or tightly coiled hair by breaking the disulfide bonds found within the cortex layer of the hair. Hair relaxers are frequently used in ethnic hair, a way in giving hair an easier way of styling, as requested by the clients. Sodium Hydroxide and Thioglicolate are the two most common types of hair relaxers.
Hair relaxers are marketed in two types, base or no base relaxers. Base relaxers require stylists to base the client’s entire scalp with a protective cream prior to the chemical relaxer application. No base relaxers have a protective cream built within the relaxer that settles onto the scalp according to the client’s body temperature.
During a hydroxide relaxer procedure a process called lanthionization occurs, where the curl pattern is loosened or relaxed. The cortex is thus elongated, stretching the original curl pattern, therefore making this a permanent alteration.

Sodium Hydroxide relaxers are very effective in breaking down the hair’s bonds (straightening the hair) quickly. Since it processes quickly it is also the most commonly used relaxers by professionals. Through speedy and precise application, professional stylists are able to apply the relaxer evenly, process the relaxer in a timely manner and rinse thoroughly with a neutralizing shampoo to avoid damage and potential irritation during the chemical process.
If hair is relaxed until it is bone straight, you are essentially over relaxing the hair. This removes elasticity, thus weakening the hair. Over a long period of time of continuous over relaxation, blow drying and hot curling, hair will become damaged and prone to breakage.
To avoid irreparable damage and maintain the integrity of the hair, we have created a special product, the ONESTEP Hair Rejuvenation System. It is Kerarganic's safe alternative to maintain hair straight and healthy after chemical relaxing. It’s an engineered complex of natural ingredients keeping disulfide bonds relaxed and strong, while a blend of caviar extract, amino acids, oils and vitamins repair the damages caused by chemical relaxers. The result is what you and your client want: straight, healthy, shiny and soft hair. 

Now that we have shown the best alternative to treat chemically relaxed hair and maintaining it straight without further damage, we want to recommend some steps to continue giving health back to the hair, preventing any future problems.
No matter what kind of damage the hair has, Moisturizing Shampoos and Conditioners are a must. Therefore we have developed an entire specialized line called the Kerarganic Restorative Collection, which gives damaged hair the special attention it needs for reverse damage.

Besides our Moisturizing Shampoos and Conditioners, we offer an Xtreme Repair Mask, a leave-in conditioner that is formulated to penetrate deeply into the hair shaft, which not only makes styling easier but as well as it smooths the cuticle for a healthy sheen. We also offer a Treatment Serum in our collection, a powerful combination of pure Argan oil from Morocco and sunflower seed extract. This serum is a natural healer for damaged fibers, especially for split ends. It can be easily applied before blow drying or ironing the hair, which will add shine and softness to the hair as well as prevent damages.

When following these steps in a few short months your client´s hair will be straight, repaired, healthy, soft, shiny and with many more qualities that can never be achieved with constant chemical relaxing.

There are two options to dye your hair – you either go to a professional colorist or go DIY - do it yourself. And both are tricky though, especially because there are certain expectations about the look you want to have, going from one shade to another isn´t always easy.

At Kerarganic love to share helpful tips to help you get the best result possible. So here we share some ideas you can follow before and after dying your hair.

When you decide to get your hair dyed, you might either be looking for a change in your looks, hiding that annoying grey, or both. So the first step is to choose the shade you want. In case your natural hair color or foundation is darker than the color you want, it’s usually necessary to go thru a full hair color bleaching to get the desired shade, or you can get the exact shade if the color you want is darker than your natural hair color.

Now that you have picked the colors, we want to tell you about quantities. In the hair dying process it’s always better to buy more than you’re going to use so that you don’t run out before you finish. If the length of your hair doesn´t reach your neck, you should be fine buying just one tube. If it goes down to your shoulders, you should get two, if it goes to the middle of your back, it’s better to get three.

When you decide to dye your hair, we recommend that you go as many days as possible without washing your hair prior to the process. Reason being that it’s always better to do the process when your hair is dirty, because the natural oils produced by the scalp will work as a protection to prevent irritation.
If it’s a colorist who is doing the process, they’ll use their knowledge to handle the application process and timing. But if you’re going t to do it yourself, follow instructions step by step, which may vary from one brand to another.  

After you finish the process and are happy with the shade you got, it’s time to lock in the color and to repair the damages that bleaching and/or the chemicals in the dye cause to the hair fibers.
For this purpose, KERARGANIC created a unique product: our ANGEL TOUCH COLORLOCK MASK, designed to lock in color and to repair damages caused by the coloring process, restoring lost nutrients and sealing in moisture. It should be used right after coloring, then weekly to maintain color vibrancy, hair health, strength, softness and shine.

To keep your color vibrant for longer time and your hair healthy and beautiful, we created a whole range of products specific for this purpose. Starting with our ANGEL TOUCH COLOR GUARDIAN NOURISHINGSHAMPOO. This is KERARGANIC’s newest COLOR PROTECTIVE SYSTEM engineered to care for colored hair, gently cleansing and repairing damages caused by chemicals and the environment. Non-abrasive due to the absence of sulfates and salts, it prolongs color vibrancy, shine and silkiness. Rich in natural oils and extracts, it nourishes the hair, keeping the fibers healthy and strong. In your daily routine we recommend to wash your hair every 4 to 5 days, skipping a few days, since frequent use of shampoo may cause fading of the new color tone.

After washing your hair with our COLOR GUARDIAN SHAMPOO, next step is to start protecting and nourishing it with our ANGELTOUCH COLOR GUARDIAN NOURISHING CONDITIONER. KERARGANIC COLOR PROTECTIVE SYSTEM has been engineered to care for colored hair, repairing damages caused by chemicals and the environment. Carefully formulated with unique natural oils and extracts, vitamins and proteins it nourishes the hair, replenishing lost nutrients, giving the hair elasticity, strength and brilliancy while controlling undesired frizz.

For day to day protection against damages from the environment such as pollution and harmful ultra violet rays from the sun as well as heat from blow drying and ironing, we have created our ANGEL TOUCHCOLOR GUARDIAN PROTECTIVE SHIELD LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER. The protective shield is formed by the synergistic action of critical ingredients working together to keep the cuticle tightly sealed to avoid penetration of harmful elements into the hair shaft. Carefully formulated with natural oils, extracts, vitamins and proteins, KERARGANIC’s PROTECTIVE SHIELD LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER will keep your hair healthy and your colors vibrant much longer.

The final step to protect your colored hair is our ANGEL TOUCH BRILLIANCE SERUM, our masterpiece serum exclusively designed to deliver maximum shine while controlling undesired frizz. Natural ingredients known to protect hair and color against environmental damages have been added to this unique formula. As an added bonus, it acts as a wonderful heat protector during blow-dry and ironing and it will finally reveal your hair dying color result.

Kerarganic teaches you how to identify your hair type!


When you see women and young girls in the mall, or when you hang out with your friends and classmates, you will see different kinds of hairstyles; you will also see different hair types. This is one on the reasons why Kerarganic has developed a variety of products to suit all types of hair, and also customized according to a specific hair type. 

It is always necessary that you and your stylist determine what your hair type is, in order to provide the proper treatments according to the needs of your hair. On this post we will show you a few steps to determine your hair type, as well as what it needs and how to treat it.

A hair type is easier to determine when it is clean and free of residues caused by either the environment or leftovers from chemicals and other hair care products. So the first thing to do is to "purify" your hair, that is wash it with a shampoo specially formulated to remove such residues that get stuck to the hair shaft. 

A hair type is easier to determine when it is clean and free of residues caused by either the environment or leftovers from chemicals and other hair care products. So the first thing to do is to "purify" your hair, that is wash it with a shampoo specially formulated to remove such residues that get stuck to the hair shaft.

Our Kerarganic Pre-Treatment (Clarifying) shampoo, part of our Classic Collection, has been designed for such a purpose. So after washing your hair with our Pre-treatment shampoo, let it dry naturally; that is, don't blowdry or iron it. The idea here is to see your hair in its natural state - curly, straight or wavy. Also avoid using a towel, since there is a risk for certain hair types to become frizzy, and that could mask the true type of your hair.

Once your hair is naturally air dried, look at multiple sections of it. Use the pictures below and descriptions of hair types to determine which type applies to you. Look and read carefully so that you can note the differences between hair types and can identify your hair type.

Hair types have been divided in 4 sections, each section according to specific characteristics.

We will start with hair type 1, divided in 1A, 1B and 1C.

Hair type 1 is classified as hair that has no curl pattern and is naturally straight. It tends to be shiny and oily due to lack of curls, so the natural oils that come from the scalp can reach all the way down to the hair shaft.

Hair type 1A is completely flat and has little to no body, it will not hold curls, it's straight from root to tip, many Asian hair fall into this category. 

Hair type 1B has more body than 1A, since it isn't completely flat. Most straight hair types fall into this category. This type of hair might hold curls, sporadically curling here and there. The ends could be curved slightly, unlike type 1A whose ends are completely straight. 

Hair type 1C is generally straight, has body, a few areas of not so much waves but slight bends. It shows a perfectly tousled look when it dries on its own. This look is natural and achieved without use of heating tools. The individual strands tend to be thick and coarse. 

It is common that straight hair does not requieres restorative treatments, unless it has beed dyed, because it usually healthy, so if you whish to clean your hair, we recommend you to use our Mint Shampoo Scalp & Hair Cleanser, that not only removes impurities, has multiple benefits such as hair loss prevention, and improvement of blood circulation to the scalp, among others. In case you feel your hair is too oily, we offer our Oil Control Scalp Balm, that will help you to easily control oil secretion.

Hair Type 1 has little-to-no volume and doesn’t hold hairstyles, such as waves or curls -which are the 2016-2017 hairstyle trend- from a curling iron, easily. Like most hair types, straight hair can be fine or medium-textured, so if you are looking to have a volumed hair look, you can use our Hair Volumizer Collection, that includes our Fortifying Shampoo and Conditioner - Volume Plus Biotin, isn’t only a volume enhancer but a treatment product created to stimulate the scalp to prevent thinning hair and hair loss and to promote hair growth.

Hair type 2 is naturally wavy and forms an "S" shape. It's not as oily as type 1, but it isn´t dry either.

Hair type 2A has several loose, natural looking beach waves all over; it isn´t frizzy. Type 2A hair can be easily straightened or curled when using hair care products and/or blowdryer or iron. 

Hair type 2B features waves that are clearly defined and more tightly drawn, but the hair still sticks closely to the head and doesn´t poof or bounce. This is the hair type when frizz starts to kick in. To tame this annoying frizz Kerarganic has launched the perfect daily solution, new Frizz Therapy Serum. 

Hair type 2C consists of waves that are tightly drawn, it's the frizziest type, and the hair bounces up slightly and poofs away from the face.

Hair Type 3 is the one classified as naturally curled and shaped in S type, defined without manipulation or use of hair styling products. All three types in hair type 3 tend to be dry and frizzy due to hair texture. The natural oils produced by scalp are not strong enough to reach past all of the curves and bends along the S shape of the hair strand. When wet, it can be either almost completely straight or wavy.

Hair type 3A usually features loose Shirley-Temple type curls that are often silky in texture which can be easily defined on their own.

Hair type 3B hair has curls that are more spiraled and springy than 3A. The hair is still moderately defined on its own, but it's extremely frizzy without the use of styling aids such as our Frizz Therapy Serum.

Hair type 3C has more tightly drawn and coiled curls, often highly textured. Individual strands are closely packed together, this is also known as clumping. It takes a bit of manual manipulation to get the curls evenly defined.

If you are a type 3 hair, and you are starting to think about using a straightener system, we offer a variety of options, including our Classic Collection (Clarifying Shampoo, Formaldehyde Free Organic Keratin Treatment and Reinforment Mask).

Relaxed hair is also considered a hair type, since the natural curl pattern is changed by the procedure and the hair gets a different texture than its original. However, lack of natural oils will require the use of specific hair care products for maintenance and health. Kerarganic has formulated a variety of products to care for relaxed hair, from professional non-toxic keratin treatment to maintain the hair straight and healthy, to high quality home care products to nourish and prolong straight and health, so we strongly recommend our After Care Collection (Keratine Shampoo, Conditioner, Intensive Treatment Mask, Leave-In Conditioner and Argan Revitilizing Oil).

Hair type 4 is classified as hair that is kinky and tightly curled without the defined and discernible ringlets of type 3 hair. Type 4 hair keeps the same shape whether it's wet or dry. It tends to be extremely dry due to the highly texture pattern of the hair, keeping natural oils from going farther than one or two inches down the hair shaft.

Hair type 4A is kinky and forms tight, perfectly cylindrical curls, tends to be the width of a pencil and springy in nature, the curls in the hair falls down, unlike other types in category 4. 

Hair type 4B is tight, crimpy pattern, more so than cylindrical curls. It can be confusing to differentiate from other hair types in category 4, but it's still clearly defined, its roots may not be, but the end has a clear curl pattern.

Hair Type 4C consists of a "Z" shape, zigzag pattern and tends to show little to no defined sections of hair. It is known to shrink by more than half of its length and its texture is from thin/fine to wiry and coarse.

If you have identify your hair type as a 43, either 4A, 4B or 4C, and you choose to straigthen your hair, Kerarganic offers you our Ultra Gold Quaternized Keratin System, which is an advanced treatment and smoothing formulation designed to repair hair damages and to tame curls, to reduce volume and to control frizz. Engineered with quaternized (positively charged) keratin protein particles, the negatively charged damaged hair fibers attract, absorb and retain nutrients, effectively repairing and nourishing the hair shaft. Other ingredients such as colloidal gold, bamboo extract, coconut oil, collagen, shea butter, Argan oil, proteins, vitamins and amino acids penetrate deeply into the cortex healing the structural outer and inner layers of the shaft. Contains 3% formaldehyde.

Your hair type care needs includes not only styling aids, also special treatment, even more if you have chosen to use a straightening treatment, so, we strongly recommend our Restorative Collection, that offers a Shampoo, Conditioner, Mask, Serum and Leave-In conditioner, with a formula especially designed to repair damaged and/or chemically treated hair, and to strengthen weak hair. Enriched with hydrolyzed keratin, Argan oil, aloe vera extract, essential proteins, vitamins and amino acids to restore hair to its healthy state.

Dyed hair, regardless how it is classified for its texture, also requires special attention to maintain color vibrancy and extend color duration. And here we've gone high. Angel Touch Color Guardian Collection is Kerarganic's brand new color care line powered by the engineered SME253 ANTI-FADE COMPLEX and an array of natural oils and extracts that protect and nourish the hair, keeping the fibers healthy and strong and color vibrant and longlasting.
