The benefits and harms of hot Botox for hair. Review of professional products

What are the contraindications?

Like any cosmetic product, hot Botox has a number of precise and relative contraindications.

Not recommended:

  • platinum blondes (the color will take on a bluish tint);

  • pregnant women;
  • during lactation;
  • during menstruation.

You cannot resort to a health procedure:

  • if there are lesions, wounds, ulcers on the skin;
  • for neuromuscular disorders;
  • if you are allergic to any component of the drug.

Comparison with keratin straightening

Keratin straightening and the use of Botox are two different consistency preparations used as a restorative agent. The drug does not damage the structure, restores all fragile areas, filling them with nutrients and important components. Care in this way improves the effect of the drug. Both procedures have ideal qualities - they can serve as protection against external factors. The only difference in the content is formaldehyde. There are no harmful components in the serum.

The visual effect, even after two procedures, may be the same, but the action will be different. After keratin treatment, each hair is enveloped in keratin, which turns the hair into manageable and well-groomed strands. Botox is used as a therapeutic procedure. The substance inside fills the entire structure and gives it shine. The hair is smoothed out, but the product cannot get rid of the natural waviness.

The benefits and harms of the procedure


  1. After hot Botox, the hair will be enriched with nutrients, and split ends will be glued together and restored. Dry and damaged hair after frequent coloring and thermal treatment will acquire a healthy appearance, shine, smoothness and softness.
  2. Hot Botox will be useful for those who have hair loss or slow growth. Thanks to the components of the drug, the bulbs are strengthened, thereby stimulating the growth of curls.
  3. Porous hair will take on a well-groomed and moisturized appearance. And blondes will be able to get rid of the yellowish tint and restore their hair after frequent dyeing.


  1. The procedure may fail due to the inexperience of the master. If the ironing temperature setting is incorrect, your hair may be damaged. The result will not appear immediately, and at first glance it will seem that the restoration was successful. But subsequently the hair will become dry, dull and lifeless.
  2. Frequent use of hot Botox is also harmful to hair, as it can make it thin and brittle.
    Between sessions you need to take a break (a month or more) so that your hair can rest from the drug.
  3. The downside of the procedure is that some may experience an allergy to Botox components in the form of rashes, redness and itching. To avoid this, it is recommended to conduct an allergen test before starting recovery. To do this, the drug is applied behind the ear or on the bend of the elbow and the reaction is checked after a day.


Madina, 31 years old:

It took me a long time to decide on this procedure, I kept thinking that there was still some kind of catch. I watched the video, read, and generally studied this topic. And in the end, I decided that I needed it. I wear long hair and constantly struggle with its unruliness)) And the Botox procedure promised beautiful, manageable hair as a result. I found a good master who uses high-quality ingredients in his work. The effect of the procedure is simply amazing... When I saw the photo of my hair from behind, I just didn’t immediately believe that it was my hair.

Karina, 42 years old:

I inherited thin hair, and constant bleaching finally finished it off. Having tried a bunch of hair masks, tested all the folk recipes for restoring hair, I resigned myself to the inevitable - my hair was frizzy, thin and lifeless. Without styling, everything looked deplorable. The styling is more or less tolerable. And so I was lucky enough to find a good hairdresser who offered me a procedure - Botox for hair. Since I didn’t have time to study reviews, I decided to take a risk. As a result, the hair became smooth, heavy and did not require styling for a month. It was enough to just wash and comb them. I really liked the hair color. True, it washed off very quickly, after the second wash of my hair. After a month, my hair started to get a little frizzy, and after two months, the Botox was completely washed off. Overall, I liked the result. I finally (albeit briefly) became the owner of luxurious hair.

What to look for when choosing

Before purchasing this drug, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with some recommendations that must be followed when purchasing.

  • Composition of the product. Be sure to look at the composition of the product before purchasing Botox. It should not contain formaldehyde and other harmful substances. Exclusively natural ingredients.
  • Type. There are different types of drugs. Some add colored pigment to the hair, while others are suitable for a certain shade of strands, for example, only for blondes or brunettes.
  • Recommendations from experts. Before purchasing the product, ask your hairdresser for an opinion. If the master is experienced, then in any case he knows this company and its characteristics.
  • Price. The optimal cost of a good product is from 2000 to 4000 rubles; do not overpay for a similar composition.
  • Brand. Buy only a brand you are familiar with, or one that you often see in advertising. This way, you can avoid buying low-quality or counterfeit products.


  1. Hot Botox can be repeated after the effect of the previous procedure has completely disappeared. The result lasts for 2-6 months. The time depends on proper care, choice of products, quality of the product, as well as the structure of the hair. It is advisable to give your curls a short break after each procedure.
  2. Hot Botox, like cold Botox, cannot be done on the same day as coloring, as this will not bring the desired result from either procedure.
    For the best effect, you need to apply hot restoration two weeks after dyeing your hair.
  3. After hot Botox, special care is required, which consists of choosing sulfate-free shampoo, conditioner and nourishing masks.
  4. In order not to wash out all the beneficial components and give them time to be absorbed into the hair, it is recommended to wash your hair after the procedure three days later.

Hot Botox is designed to “seal” all the beneficial substances in the hair using a straightening iron or hair dryer, after which the curls will become not only well-groomed and shiny, but also dense and manageable. In order for the effect to last for a long time, you need to choose a suitable Botox kit and properly care for your hair after the procedure.

  9. Comb.

It is recommended to use a massage comb or a regular comb with frequent teeth as a comb.

The rectifier must be selected carefully - it must be able to regulate the emitted temperature.

The coarser and denser the structure of the strands, the higher the temperature should be used.
