Understanding Hair Texturizing

If you’re looking to embrace the new season with a change in your hairstyle, give hair texturing a look. At Martino Cartier, our professional hair texturing treatments allow you to curl, straighten, or smooth your hair with results that last. 

Hair texture involves more than just curly vs. straight. Your hair texture and style make a statement about your personality and changing the texture of your hair allows for different variations on styles. 

Relaxers. Relaxing is a process that straightens your natural curls so that it’s easier for you to wear your hair in a straight hairstyle. Our relaxer uses a specialized formula that changes the structure of the hair to enable it to stay straight while conditioning it to stay soft and smooth. Results last about six to eight weeks and your stylist will let you know about any touchups needed to keep it looking smooth, as well as which hair care products to use for regular conditioning so your hair remains nourished, soft, and healthy-looking.  

Modern Perms. At Martino Cartier, you will find our modern perms a huge improvement from the 80s-style perms. We focus on keeping your hair healthy while giving you smooth, silky curls. There are many types of curls to choose from, so it’s best to have a consultation to determine the tightness of curl and the amount of body that is right for you. Whether you choose loose, beachy waves or tight ringlets, today’s perms offer well-defined curls that last up to six months.

Keratin. A keratin treatment is a smoothing process that binds keratin protein to seal the strands of the hair, keeping them smooth and eliminating frizz. When your hair has been damaged by heating tools, UV rays, toxins, chemical processing, etc., the keratin is removed from your hair, leaving the porous areas open to react to the humidity and cause frizz. Keratin fills in those areas and smooths out your hair. Keratin treatments can last up to 5 months. 

Brazilian Blowout. This is another type of smoothing treatment that works similarly to a keratin treatment. This option is safe for straight or curly hair, making your hair silky and manageable while keeping your natural waves in place. If you struggle with unmanageable hair and frizz, a Brazilian blowout may be a good option for you that can last up to 3 months. As with any treatment, your Martino Cartier stylist will help you determine what is best for your hair type.
