Hair cauterization is a very common procedure in beauty salons, but it still causes many doubts: after all, what does the treatment consist of, what are its benefits and when is it recommended to do it? To answer all these questions, we invited the hairdresser Joyce Rodrigues, who will bring very important tips on the subject.

So, if you want to return the shine and health of your wires, follow the next topics and find out if this procedure is for you. Also, check out videos and product tips to do the treatment in the comfort of your home!

what is cauterization

Capillary cauterization is a reconstruction of the hair cuticles which, according to hairdresser Joyce Rodrigues, is done through the replacement of keratin – a protein that will hold the strands and fill them. According to the specialist, the sealing of keratin in the hair is done by means of heat sources, such as a flat iron. However, she informs that there are already processes with nanomolecules that do not require higher temperatures for sealing and that, therefore, are more effective.

What is cauterization used for?

Hair cauterization is used to repair hair exposed to external aggressions, such as chlorine, chemical procedures and even sunlight. These are examples of damage that causes hair to break. Therefore, the treatment is recommended for situations where the wires lack keratin, such as when they are brittle, with split ends and rough. Thus, the result is shinier hair and less frizz, the main benefit being the recovery of the health of the wires.

The procedure has no straightening function, explains professional Joyce. She comments: “By reducing frizz, it may even look more straightened, but its real function is to hold the hair so it doesn’t break”. Also, be aware: if your hair has gone through a lot of chemicals and has sensitivity or flaking, it’s best to avoid cauterization.
