The aim of the treatment is to restore and rebuild the damaged areas by treating your hair with a property that’s already in it: keratin. Keratin is a strong protein that is key to hair maintenance, often lost over time due to age, chemical services and products. The keratin treatment simply puts that protein back in your locks, adding a layer of protein to your hair, strengthening it, relaxing it, making it more manageable and giving your hair a salon shine.
Is it a straightening treatment?
The biggest misconception about keratin treatments is that they are hair-straightening treatments. A keratin hair treatment is actually a hair relaxing treatment, smoothing out the frizz and making your hair easier to straighten.
How long does it last & how long does it take?
Keratin treatments aren’t permanent and the longevity of the treatment depends on the texture of your hair and the upkeep of the treatment’s after-care. A keratin treatment can last up to six months with proper after-care. First your hair will be washed thoroughly, then keratin is applied in a serum form to each strand, treating your locks section by section. Heat is then applied to the hair to activate the treatment as your hair is straightened meticulously. Once it looks straighter, sleeker and smoother, the treatment is rinsed out, then dried and straightening it again. The whole process can take a few hours. Please book a consultation for pricing.
How to take care of your hair post-treatment
You aren’t advised to wash your hair, tie it up or style it in any way that could kink it for at least 48 hours. For as long as the keratin treatment lasts you are also recommended to wash your hair with a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner.
