Q. Would NATURAGANIC® Keratin Treatment System work any hair type?
All hair types can benefit from NATURAGANIC®. Continued use of the “Sophia La Belle after treatment products” will maintain and reinforce the treatment and initial appearance. These benefits include but not limited to: increased shine, reduced frizz, and increase in overall manageability.

Q. Is there any incompatibility between NATURAGANIC® Keratin Treatment Systems and other types of straightening products such as guanidine, sodium, ammonia or henna etc.?
No, there is no incompatibility between NATURAGANIC® and any other chemical straighteners
on the market such as those listed above.

Why use NATURAGANIC® Keratin Treatment Systems?
Today many hair treatments (bleaching, chemical straightening, perms etc.) that large numbers of women use regularly are harder on the hair, changing its internal structure. Daily hair care routines also frequently involve overuse of hairdryers and straighteners. This means that the hair cuticle, which is made of keratin and which is there to protect the inside of the hair as well as providing its shine and color, opens up, leaving hair dry, fragile and porous, which makes it brittle and lifeless.

NATURAGANIC® Keratin Systems provide the keratin necessary for the total repair of hair, leaving it
healthy and protected while also reducing its volume and leaving it smoother.

NATURAGANIC® Keratin Systems are also compatible with any other hair product and can be used on hair
that has been bleached, colored, permed or chemically straightened, as it does not change the internal structure of the hair fiber.

Q. Can NATURAGANIC® Texturizer be used on children?
Yes, from the age of 8 and up.

Q. Can NATURAGANIC® Keratin Treatment Systems be used on untreated hair?
Yes, excellent results have been obtained on clients with untreated hair.

Q. What kind of results can I expect from NATURAGANIC®?
A. NATURAGANIC® Keratin Treatment System will give hair overall manageability, incredible shine, soften curls, and removes frizz. The straightening system eliminates all frizz and will loosen the curls in even the most coarse hair types, allowing for straighter, silky smooth results. Please take a look at the result chart.

Q. What does NATURAGANIC® Keratin Treatment System do?
NATURAGANIC® Keratin Treatment System a unique smoothing & straightening system that conditions, nourishes and straightens hair for an extended period of time (Please see result chart. Result varies based on type of treatment, hair texture and condition). This product is not intended to give “pin straight” hair after every wash. Users love this system because it allows them to wear hair straight or in a looser natural curl that is frizz-free. Once hair is washed, it will dry this way. If you want straight hair, that style can be achieved in less time than usual and with greater ease. The style you select should last longer than usual regardless of humidity.

Q. How long does each one of the treatment last?
Please check out the result chart provided.

Q. What are the advantages of NATURAGANIC® MERVEILLE 0.0 over other products?
It is an entirely natural treatment that does not contain Formaldehyde. It does not irritate the eyes during application. Only one application session is required and the product leaves no residue, which means that you don’t have to wait for “hours/days” before rinsing off excess keratin and, as is often the case, return to the hairdresser to finish the process. Product 100% guaranteed, tested by a Quality Control Laboratory, and certified.

Q. Can I use NATURAGANIC® if I have color treated or chemically processed hair?
Yes, but depends on the treatment. In fact, NATURAGANIC® treatments will make permanent hair color last longer, and look shinier! We suggest that you color/highlight your hair “before” applying the treatments for best results. (NOTE: For best results In the case of Merveille 0.0 treatment hair that has been dyed brown or red, it is advisable to wait 7 days before applying the treatment). If you use a DEPOSIT ONLY HAIR COLOR, we suggest that you do a patch test first. These color products have a protein base and that combined with the protein in our treatment may be too much protein for some hair.

Any of NATURAGANIC® Keratin Treatment Systems are safe for anyone who has relaxed or permed hair. It is not harsh like Japanese or other relaxing systems and a fantastic substitute for anyone who wants to stop treating their hair with chemical solutions.

Q. Will it really “pin” straightens my hair?
A. No. All hair types are different but typical results are as follows. If you have very curly hair, the treatment will give you a loose wave that can be worn straight or wavy (you still have options!). It will eliminate frizz and enhance shine. If you have wavy hair, your hair will appear straighter and more radiant. Hair will not be “pin” straight. It will still require light styling but will be much easier to style and the style will last longer than usual without being compromised by the weather.

Q. What if my hair is straight and I want to try the treatment?
A. NATURAGANIC® Keratin Treatment System boasts incredible results for straight hair as well. It enhances shine and volume and eliminates frizz. Hair is silky and replenished. The exclusive complex in NATURAGANIC® also prevents hair from future cuticle damage that can occur from brushing or from overuse of styling tools.

Q. How long will NATURAGANIC® Keratin Treatment System last?
A. Depends. When applied correctly and properly maintained with “Sophia La Belle after treatment products” like: Shampoo, Conditioner, Leave-in Conditioner, Serum , and Hair Mask the system can last anywhere from 3 month to 5 months for Magique 1.9, Miracle Ultra 2.9, and 2-4 months for Merveille 0.0. This depends entirely on your hair type/texture, hair condition, and amount of physical activity. Please check the result chart.

Q. How often can I use the treatment?
A. Although our treatments last (Up to) 4 to 5 months, they can be done on a monthly basis or every 2 months to cover the new growth area as well. There is NO retouch application. The more you do the treatments the softer your curls get, more manageable your hair becomes, and less frizz. Any of the treatments help to seal into the hair more and more, so it needs to be done from roots to ends again each time.

Q. Can I use it more than once a month?
A. There is no need to apply this more often than every 30 days.

Q. Can I wet my hair right after applying the treatment?
A. It is recommended that you wait one hour for Merveille 0.0 before you get it wet/wash it. It is recommended to wait 24 hours Magique 1.9, and 24 to 48hours for Miracle Ultra 2.9 before you get it wet/wash it.

Q. Can I use the product if I am pregnant or breast feeding?
A. We recommend consulting your doctor if you have a medical condition, or are pregnant or nursing before trying any new treatment.

Q. Does it smell bad?
A. No. There is no chemical odor. Any of NATURAGANIC® keratin treatments are thermal active products, but there is a fragrance smell in each straightening treatment. It is not an irritating smell.

Q. How much product is in each bottle?
A. The kit contains 4oz Keratin Straightening Treatment, 4 oz. Clarifying Shampoo, 8 oz. Shampoo, 8 oz. Conditioner, 1 pair of ear shield, as well as 1 pair of gloves. We give enough Straightening Therapy to cover even the longest, thickest hair types so the average user may get 2-3 applications from the bottle. Should you require more individual product or kit, please call or click on the product tab at the top of the web page to order.

Q. Can I use other shampoos, conditioners, or after treatment products with the treatment?
A. No, Over counter and other brand sulfate and sodium free products will offer different results. We strongly recommend “SOPHIA LA BELLE” After Treatment line of products for many reasons. The list includes but not limited to the facts that Sophia La Belle after treatment products are designed to maintain NATURAGANIC® Keratin treatment for much longer time. They are all color protect, contain UV protection ingredients, and more importantly low in PH, Sulfate & “Sodium chloride FREE”, and formulated to maintain NATURAGANIC® brand of Keratin Collagen Treatment in hair long after the service.

Q. Can I use my own shampoo with NATURAGANIC®? Can I use other styling products?
A. If you want the long terms results of the system use the “Sophia La Belle after Treatment Products” only, as they are specifically formulated to work with the system. When you no longer want the NATURAGANIC® Keratin Treatment System in your hair, simply start using your own shampoo and styling products etc., and it will wash out of your hair.

Q. What is Merveille 0.0 made of?
A. Its custom complex that includes keratin and protective restructuring proteins to repair your hair acts as a moulding and heat protection agent and prevents the loss of moisture, forming a protective film on the hair. Active ingredients Oxoacetamide carbocystein allows the insterconversion of the oxidized form of cysteine into a reduced form, which makes a reduction in hair volume possible. Biocompatible proteins and amino acids active nanotechnology consisting of cationic nanoparticles of sericin, a protein contained in silk that acts as an adhesive between the silk fibers. These nanoparticles stick to the hair’s surface, sealing the cuticle and restoring the protein mass. There is no Formaldehyde (.00001 % Formaldehyde) in Merveille 0.0.

A. Yes, we have done clinical studies on various hair types and we have seen incredible results.

In addition our products have been selling over seas since 2010 and have been best of Washington DC for 2011 and 2012.

Q. Do I need a specific flat iron for this treatment or should I heat it to a certain temperature?
A. You should always use good tools for your hair. We do not require a 450 degree flat iron for Merveille 0.0 system to work, but you would need flat iron that would reach 410 to 450 degree for Magique 1.9, and Miracle 2.9. NOTE: Some hair types cannot withstand that type of heat so we recommend that you patch test your hair to see what temp works best for you. Remember, thick hair or coarse hair doesn’t necessarily mean that hair is strong. NATURAGANIC® Keratin Treatment System cannot damage your hair, but a bad styling tool or flat iron or too much heat can, so please be careful with those flat irons/tools!

Q. Can I just blow dry my hair or do I have to flat iron?
A. No. For optimum results, we recommend using the flat iron.

A. Yes! The great thing about NATURAGANIC® Keratin Treatment System is that you have options. The treatment will make tight curls into looser waves so you will still have an option to wear hair wavy. If you have wavy hair, it will make the waves straighter. Results vary depending on hair texture/type and which NATURAGANIC® keratin line you use.

Q. How do I do a patch test?
