What if your Keratin hair care products don’t contain any Keratin? What if your Keratin hair care products do nothing to restore or repair your damaged hair, and are no more effective than soap and water? The attorneys of Morgan & Morgan are investigating potential lawsuits on behalf of consumers who purchased and used hair care products marketed as Keratin products.

Why Are Women Buying Keratin Products?
Keratin hair care products — which come in the form of shampoos, conditioners, sprays, serums, and more — are immensely popular in the beauty industry. Cosmetic companies claim that Keratin hair care products can smooth, repair and treat damaged and frizzy hair. Therefore, consumers have been led to believe that these products will solve their hair problems.
A Shocking Discovery About Keratin Products
Contrary to the representations made by the product manufacturers, an independent analysis has revealed that certain Keratin products do not contain any Keratin, despite marketing language implying that these products contain this key ingredient. Furthermore, contrary to the product marketing materials, including the product labels, certain Keratin products allegedly do nothing to smooth, restore, or repair the hair. Instead, they mask symptoms of damaged hair with ingredients that are no more effective than simple soap and water, deceiving consumer into believing that the products perform as advertised.
