Keratin Specialist Hair Treatments
If your hair is lately looking frizzy, dry, and damaged you should definitely get a keratin treatment, but you may be wondering what is that treatment? and what the benefits it provides for hair? All those questions and more are going to be answered in this article.
What is a Keratin Treatment?
Let’s start by saying that keratin is a protein that we naturally have. It is part of our hair, nails, and skin. It has a protective function and provides structure to our hair. Thanks to keratin our hair keeps strong and shiny and due to chemicals, overheating and over-styling the amount of keratin that is on our hair might get reduced and our hair may end up prone to breakage, dry and frizzy.
Keratin treatments are a semi-permanent way to keep your hair smooth and healthy. There are different types of keratin treatments, but they all have one thing in common: they dive into the hair follicle and inject porous areas with keratin. The first keratin treatments contained formaldehyde which is a harmful chemical that may irritate the skin, but new products are formaldehyde-free and just contain nourishing ingredients for our hair.
How Long Does the Treatment Last?
It depends on the type of keratin that is applied. The product typically lasts between 3 to 6 months and you need to use sulfate-free products in order to maintain it.
What to Expect After the Treatment
The results vary according to the type of keratin you got applied and your type of hair. If your hair is already healthy and straight and you just want to give it more shine then you are going to be 100% satisfied with the results. On the other hand, if your hair is really damaged or has a kinky texture then the results are going to be less dramatic. Still, keratin treatments are one of the greatest ways to repair your hair and keep it moist and healthy. Benefits of Keratin Treatments for Hair Straightening/Smoothing Your hair is going to be easier to manage
If you are constantly applying heat on your hair to control the frizz and make it look smoother, the keratin treatment makes your hair look straight and shortens the blow-dry time by 40% to 60%. Normally straightening treatments have a formaldehyde-releasing method to modify the texture of our hair. When the product is formaldehyde-free it doesn’t modify the texture of the hair and isn’t as potent as the one with formaldehyde.
Keratin treatments restore protein on our hair, a specific protein that is in charge of the structure of our hair, which means that this treatment is not going to mask the problem, is going to repair your hair and make it become stronger and healthier. Goodbye Frizz!!!
