There seems to be confusion and sometimes a breakdown in communication between stylists and clients since the term "Brazilian Blowout" has become somewhat of a catch-all description for keratin hair straightening processes.
Except for a few growing cells at the base of the root, hair, which is composed of keratin and other proteins, is dead tissue.
Other gel systems bond to the nail with a comparatively weak hydrogen bond, while Brisa bonds with the keratin of the nail plate.
Brazilian Blowout is a brand of keratin treatment performed in salons that gives smooth, shiny, frizz-free, often perfect hair.
Typical albuminoids are gelatin, keratin, elastin, fibroin, spongin and conchiolin.
It is not clear from Welch's account what is the cause of the whiteness of the tips of the hairs of the autumn coat, but his figures suggest that it is due to the development of gas in the interspaces between the keratin bridges and trabeculae of the hairs.
Related to this substance are " neuro-keratin," found in the medullary sheath of nerves, and " gorgonin," the matrix of the axial skeleton of the coral Gorgonia Cavolinii.
For the stomach and intestines we employ the same drug in the form of a pill; and when it is desired to act especially upon the intestines, the pills are made of a harder consistence or less soluble preparation, or are covered with keratin, so that they may not act much, if at all, upon the stomach while passing through it before reaching the intestines.
For the intestinal conditions it must either be given in a keratin-coated pill or injected high up into the rectum.
