7 Things You Need to Know About Keratin Smoothing Treatments

Are you considering getting a keratin smoothing treatment in the pursuit of silky, shining, frizz-free hair? If so, keep reading!

In this blog post, we will discuss the seven important things you need to know before getting a keratin treatment.

Number 1: Keratin is a protein that is naturally produced by our bodies. It gives structure and strength to our hair, skin, and nails. When we apply keratin treatments to our hair, we are essentially infusing it with this protein in order to achieve shiny, strong strands.

Number 2: There are two types of keratin treatments: traditional keratin treatments and express keratin treatments. Traditional keratin treatments can take up to three hours to complete, while express keratin treatments typically only take about an hour.

Number 3: Keratin treatment prices can vary depending on the salon, the length and thickness of your hair, and the type of keratin treatment you select. However, you can typically expect to pay anywhere from $100 to $600 for a keratin treatment.

Number 4: Keratin treatments can last anywhere from 6 weeks to 4-6 months. This means that you will likely need to touch up your treatment every few months in order to maintain the results.

Number 5: Keratin treatments can be used on all hair types, including coloured/dyed hair. If you have very damaged or brittle hair, you may want to consult with your stylist before getting a keratin treatment to ensure that it is the right choice for you.

Number 6: Keratin treatments can help to reduce frizz, add shine, and make your hair easier to style. However, they will not straighten your hair. If you are looking for a treatment that will straighten your hair, you may want to consider getting a chemical straightening treatment instead.

Number 7: Keratin treatments do require after care in order to maintain the results. This typically includes using sulphate-free shampoo and conditioner, avoiding heat styling tools, and not washing your hair for 48 hours after the treatment.
