What is the difference between Elastin Protein, Amino Multifunctional Treatment and Green Clay Keratin?

Existing and new technology systems to smooth and straighten hair
There are 3 different types of smoothing and straightening systems on the market:

  1. Chemical straightening systems (Japanese, perming or others)
  2. (Brazilian) Keratin systems
  3. DiscovHair’s innovative technologies

The Elastin Protein and Amino Multifunctional Treatment both are a new technology and not comparable to the (Japanese) chemical straightening systems or (Brazilian) keratin. Chemical straightening systems re-bond, they break down the hair structure and rebuild it to be straight. Keratin bonds to the first layer of the hair and coats it, which will wear off after a while. The Elastin and Amino belong to a new category of their own.

The technology behind Elastin, Protein and Amino
The technology of Elastin and Amino is the best of both worlds: it penetrates the hair like chemical straightening systems, but without the harsh chemicals. It leaves your natural hair structure intact and fills up the core of the hair with loads of amino and protein goodies, also making the bonds suppler. Therefore it’s an ACTUAL treatment! And not a coating or restructuring process.
The difference with keratin is that it’s a same-day wash-out, so no leave-in period. Results are instant. And there are no restrictions to activities such as washing limitations, swimming in sea or pool or going to the gym. Final results are very natural and light and feel like your own hair, just much more manageable, silky soft, easy and quick to rough or blow-dry or straighten at home.

So what’s the difference between Amino and Elastin?
The Amino is a de-frizzer or relaxer, designed to keep the curl and volume in the hair. Curls hold straight after treatment and the hair has body. It’s easy and quick to blow-dry and if you wear it straight you won’t have to use straighteners between washes.
The Elastin Protein is designed to loose the curl and straighten the hair. Curls won’t hold as easily. The hair is de-frizzed and quick to blow-dry.

About Green Clay Keratin?
Green Clay Keratin is a straight forward keratin treatment. We’ve added Green Clay and Poly Saccharide to give nutrients to the hair while it’s been coated and we’ve used chemical ingredients to a medical degree for less or no discomfort.

No. Unlike keratin it is not beneficial to leave the treatment in for longer, it can be washed out right away in salon. On the other hand, it can’t be over processed either, so if you’re pressured with time in salon, you can wash it out at your own convenience later on.

What are the activity restrictions after treatment? Can I go to the swimming pool, sea or gym?

There are no restrictions!! You can go to the swimming pool, into the sea or visit the gym as often as you want, the straightness won’t wear off. You will have to take care of your hair as you did before treatment though, the treatment doesn’t protect the hair. So the silky feeling might wear off quicker if you don’t take care of it properly, the straightness won’t wear off.

What do I need for the after care?

To maintain the soft and silky feeling for as long as possible, we advise you use DiscovHair Care shampoo and Soft conditioner or Smooth mask. The straightness won’t be influenced if you don’t, but the silky feeling might wear off quicker.

When should I colour my hair, before or after?

You can colour your hair before and after treatment, but we recommend afterwards to prevent the colour lifting due to heat applied. You can colour, cut and highlight right after treatment, so you don’t have to come back another day.

Yes, the Amino Multifunctional Treatment is a same-day wash-out. After the wash-out you can treat your hair as if it wasn’t treated before. Style however you like, also curls will hold immediately.

Amino or Elastin?

It really depends on the results you desire. In short:

The Amino Multifunctional Treatment is designed to keep the curl, de-frizz the hair and leave volume and body in the hair. It will do anything from only de-frizzing (not effecting the curl at all) up to relaxing the hair. It will not go absolutely straight.

The Elastin Protein is designed to take the curl out of the hair and straighten it as much as the natural hair structure allows it to. Curls will not hold after treatment and the hair is significantly straighter.

Poly Saccharide

How much does it cost?

Every salon makes their own price list. Contact your preferred salon for an exact quote and consultation.

What is Poly Saccharide and how does it work?

Poly Saccharide is a bio-product. That means it is completely natural and doesn’t contain any chemicals. It derives from a red seaweed. In short: when this red seaweed is in extreme biological conditions (pressure) it discharges the Polysaccharide chains for protection. The polysaccharide chains are designed to withstand extreme environmental conditions, such as extreme temperatures, high salinity and various biological attacks. We’ve captured the Polysaccharide chains so it can also protect your hair.

Poly Saccharide protects against chemical processes such as hair straightening, bleaching, hair colouring and other chemical hair treatments widely used in the day-to-day operations of a hair salon. The polysaccharides molecules cover the disulfide bonds and provide a treatment and repair for damaged hair allowing new treatments to take action without delay. Regular use significantly highlights the hair’s positive characteristics and assists in maintaining hair treatment results for a long period of time.

What can Poly Saccharide be added to?

Poly Saccharide can be added to any salon service. Because it’s a bio-product and does not contain any chemicals the Poly also doesn’t react with most products such as hair mask treatments, keratin smoothing treatments, bleaching, colouring etc.

Will the treatment work for my hair type?

Yes, Poly Saccharide protects any hair type.

How is it applied?

Poly Saccaride is mixed in with a treatment, bleach or tint. That’s it!

Does my salon service take more time?

No. Unlike many other add-on treatments in the market there is no time delay for bleaching and no change in colour for tinting. Because it’s a bio-product and does not contain any chemicals the Poly also doesn’t react with most products such as hair mask treatments, keratin smoothing treatments, bleaching, colouring etc.

What will happen if I use Poly Saccharide a few times and then stop?

Will the protection wear off and eventually cause my hair to break? This question is asked often and the answer is no. Even if you completely stop using Poly, the protection that Poly Saccharide offered is permanent.
