Hair Keratin Treatment

What is Keratin?

You probably have heard of Keratin, but you may wonder what it is. Keratin is classified as a protein and it possesses a structure that is rather fibrous. It is the foundational structure of nails and hair.

Smooth Effect

Have you been hearing a lot about keratin hair treatments and wondering how they can help your hair? A keratin hair treatment is a treatment that is applied to frizzy hair in order to provide a smooth effect. This type of treatment is excellent in sealing the cuticle of the hair by coating it with protein in order to achieve the amazing elimination of unsightly frizzy hair. The hair becomes soft and shiny.


When a person has this treatment done, it is necessary to allot a time frame of one to three hours. The length of the treatment will be based on the type of hair the person has. Some other factors that determine the length of a keratin hair treatment also are the fullness of the hair and the length of the hair.

Shampooing And Sectioning

Prior to the application of a keratin treatment to the hair, it is necessary to shampoo the hair carefully in order to remove all residue from hair products and any oil in the hair. The hair is then parted into various sections with the treatment being added to each section of hair.

Application from root to ends, combing, sectioning, drying and smoothing

The treatment is applied from the root right down to the ends of the hair It is necessary to comb the hair in order to ensure that there is the achieving of even distribution throughout the hair. The hair then is dried to about seventy-five percent dryness. Then again, the hair is sectioned and the hair is blow dried until it is smooth with the aid of a round brush. When the hair is fully dry, the hair undergoes more sectioning with the flat iron being applied to each section several times (about three to eight times). This is based on how straight and smooth the client desires the hair to be.

Benefits of Kertain Treatments

Having a keratin treatment is highly beneficial due to the fact that it allows one to have hair that is much more beautifully smooth. In addition, the hair is truly much more manageable. It is also beneficial to have a keratin treatment following a colour service, due to the fact that it helps to seal in the colour. Moreover, people love the shine that it gives to their hair.

For Both Men And Women

Keratin hair treatments are not only for women, but men can greatly benefit from them as well when men have hair that is unruly. In fact, a keratin hair treatment can shorten one’s personal styling routine by half. This is great when one feels that he or she does not have much time for a lengthy hair routine due to a busy schedule and many obligations.

Types Of Hair

It is important to note that a keratin hair treatment may not be applicable for all clients. It is ideal for those who have hair that is unruly, frizzy and thick. The keratin treatment will help to make coarse and curly hair much smoother and easier to deal with during one’s hair styling routine. However, the person who has thin and fine hair should not have a keratin treatment as a result of the air being too delicate.

When wondering about damage to hair

On the other end of the spectrum, some may wonder if keratin treatments damage the hair. Keratin treatments do not damage the hair if they are done by a professional and if they are done the right number of times, which usually equates to about two to three times per year. The fact is that a keratin hair treatment can provide good results for up to six months before another treatment may be required. Thus, a keratin hair treatment is truly a valuable investment.

Wonderful nourishment and caution

The truth of the matter is that keratin hair treatments provide wonderful nourishment to hair that is unruly and damaged. People can lose the natural keratin in their hair over time. But the good news is that a keratin hair treatment can replenish the keratin that has been lost. The main thing is not to use the flat iron too much during the process of doing the keratin treatment, though a keratin treatment does require the usage of the flat in order to ensure that the treatment has been carefully sealed into the hair.

If a person has a lot of highlights in the hair, then it is imperative to use a lower setting for the heat of the iron. Also, fewer passes over the hair should be conducted in order to prevent damage to the hair during the treatment. However, someone who does not have highlights or a lot of products in the hair can usually have more passes of the flat iron at a higher level of heat without suffering from damage to the hair during the process.

The organic colours and treatments that Nicole uses are amazing and my hair looks fantastic! Thanks Nicole and team

Marisa (Sylvania)

Thank you Nicole and Capri for providing excellent service. I always leave Indossa happy with my hair colour/cut and I've been visiting the salon for ten years! There's always a good vibe and Nicole keeps up to date with the latest hair trends and products. I look forward to my next visit.

Ann (Kograh)

Nicole is the best cutter and colour expert in Sydney....hands down!

Anonymous (Menai)

I think Nicole is hands down the best Hair stylist, colourist, cutter I have ever been too! This is why I travel to and keep going back to her. Her warm manner with her clients makes you feel valued like family. While it costs me more to travel to go and see her, at this point I would not trust anyone else with my hair. In my opinion she is wonderful at what she does.

Michelle (Yass)

Always leave the salon feeling relaxed and happy in the hands of Nicole.A true Yogi.

Carole (Cronulla)

Nicole, not only are you a fantastic hairdresser but you're a beautiful person. Thank you for excellent service! x

Ann (Kograh Bay)

Nicole knows what she is doing and I trust her completely. When you have long hair and want to keep it a lot of other hair dressers just cut too much. Nicole knows how to cut and what to cut and the colour is amazing. Thank you Nicole.


I have been a client of Nicole's for 7 years. She has taken me from a blonde to a red and recently back to blonde again. Nicole looked after my hair during my time on 'So You Think You Can Dance', where I was constantly having my hair styled.

Chanelle Johnson

I never have any preconceived notions about how I am going to look on leaving Nicole's salon. I usually leave it up to Nicole to decide on what I am having. Never have I been disappointed, always fun, never dull and great results.

Toni (loyal client of 15 years)

Thank you Nicole Hudson for our fabulous hair @Indossa x

Yvonne Tozzi

Nicole, Thankyou for the follow up. I am delighted with my hair colour and cut, can’t stop raving about you and your salon. See you in about seven weeks.


My beauty and body secrets - I credit my hair colour to: “A few different people. I go to Nicole Hudson at Indossa in Cronulla, right near my house (she's very good with blondes), and sometimes I'll go to Valonz in Paddington. In New York I go to Sally Hershberger.”

Cheyenne Tozzi

Cannot thank you guys enough for the care and attention you gave me and my granddaughter River. My hair was a disaster when I walked in, but when I walked out it was amazing. So so happy. What an awesome result!!! Thanks so much Nicole 😁

Kelly-Elizabeth Rosman

I love, love, love my new hair. Nicole has done a beautiful job, she completely listened to me, couldn’t rate her more highly

Wendy Keene

Nicole Hudson and Capre are terrific. Nicole fixed a really bad hair cut and I could hardly recognise myself - in a good way. The salon is gorgeous as are the lovely staff. Good value for money as well.

Saeran Adams

In Cronulla for the weekend and came to the amazing Nicole Hudson for a trim and blow dry ... she is a magician xxx

Deb Deane

Had an absolutely amazing experience today at Nicole Hudson Hair. The ladies were extremely supportive, precise, and the results were fantastic. Never been happier!

Baleigh Gorman

Couldn't be happier, I took off about 8 inches of hair and was very nervous about the change but Nicole and her young apprentice were wonderful and made me forget about the nerves all together. Very well priced and great service, I couldn't recommend her enough.

Alix Forst

Amazing first time at the salon today and the cut and colour i am in love with thanks Nicole

Latisa Valerie Medic

Prior to seeing Nicole, I hadn't been able to grow my hair, it was really damaged and parts of my hair had snapped off. Since I have been coming here, (over 1.5 years), not only do I always leave with an amazing fresh blonde colour but my hair is healthy and has also grown so much. Nicole and Capre are amazing x

Paige McDonald

Nicole is a very special hairdresser who is upto date with the latest colour, products and style..My hair is always in great condition and my colour is always on point. Thank you Nicole for your passion & creativeness that you give to me x

Kathy Kalogiannis

So I reckon you know how good a hairdresser is by how your hair looks when u have to do it yourself. I love my hair and I can actually achieve a similar look 😬. Great cu colour and look!

Amanda Bailey

Nicole always works her magic!! A true professional !

Ronelle Adams

Nicole Watson

Nicole has been my stylist for years and I trust her completely with my hair! Her colours are beautiful and she always stays one step ahead with fresh ideas. I always leave feeling great!

Jo Wilton

Nicole has been doing my hair for nearly 15 years now, and has kept it beautiful through periods of high work stress, two pregnancies and an unfortunate over-reliance on my hair dryer. She doesn't mind me booting up the laptop to work away while she transforms my hair each time, and now my daughter loves coming with me to have her hair done by Capre.

Leonie Wilkinson

I was lucky to be squeezed in late on a Friday for a makeup appointment, and needed some shampoo/conditioner. The girls were lovely but the shampoo/conditioner is the first one I've used EVER that makes my hair look good dried naturally, no straightener. I thought I needed a keratin treatment but not anymore. Best conditioner ever.

Ally Mahoney

Nicole is honestly the best hairdresser that I have come across in such a long time. After moving to Sydney and testing and trying countless salons that honestly just destroyed my hair, I went and thought I would give Nicole's salon a try and she is honestly a miracle worker. I went in with orange/fluro yuck ends and she completely cleaned it up while maintaining my natural hair to create something beautiful!

Jaime-Lee Digby

So nice to finally find the amazing Nicole Hudson, the only woman who is able to actually do blondes to perfection!!! If you haven't already, book in today!!!!

Bilinda Turner

Nicole is by far the best hairdresser I've ever been to. I knew she had a lot of female customers and she is very popular among the girls with her world class designs, but guys, I've never felt so good after a hair cut. Not only this but the service, the atmosphere and the fact that she gets it right every time make me come from the Eastern Suburbs at least once a month. What a find! I have no hesitation in recommending this outstanding salon and it's charming and very talented owner to anyone. A true professional. I'm hooked.

Doc Martin

Where do I even begin to thank you for my AH-MAZING hair. Previous hairdressers just wouldn't get it right, I have never walked out of a salon and been happy with both the cut and colour ! You are extremely gifted, I am so happy my beautiful Aunty introduced you into my life lol!! Thank you Nicole!!!

Cathy Allotta

Julie Scott

Nicole was recommended to me by a friend after my recent move to the area. Nicole does not disappoint, she understood what I wanted and executed my cut beautifully. Her friendly staff are also very welcoming and attentive. I think it is safe to say I have found my new hairdresser.
