We all want the look – lush, shimmering straight hair that feels as soft as it looks. If your natural hair is on the dry and frizzy side, straight ironing just doesn’t get you there. If this sounds like you, keratin treatments may be the perfect texturing solution.
Keratin is a natural protein that makes up our hair, nails, and the outer layer of our skin. When your hair gets damaged, especially from heat, it can damage the keratin in your hair, leaving it weaker and prone to even more damage.
Keratin treatments infuse strength-building keratin into your hair, leaving it soft and smooth. The keratin fills up spaces left behind by damage, restoring your hair to its healthiest state. The results are smoother hair that is easier to style and has a glossy, beautiful finish. You’ll say goodbye to frizz, regardless of the weather outside.
You’ll save time every morning, not just from ditching the straight iron, but because your hair requires less time to dry. In addition, your hair will stay healthier because you’re spending less time with heated styling tools.
Keratin treatments are customized for the needs of each individual, so the first step is a consultation with your stylist to discuss your desired results. The process lasts about two hours, but this varies based on the length and thickness of your hair, so ask your stylist how long you should allow for an appointment.
Aftercare is easy, although you will have to wait a couple of days to wash your hair to ensure best results. When you do wash, you’ll need a sulfate-free shampoo formulated for your hair type. Be sure to use the products your stylist recommends, because those will help your beautiful new style last longer. also, be sure to follow your stylist’s recommendations about how often to wash, for best results. Speaking of lasting, your results from the keratin treatment will last about two to three months with proper care.
