What is a Keratin Treatment and Why Do You Need One?
Do you struggle with frizz? Does it take forever to dry your hair? Do you constantly feel like your fighting pesky flyaways? It’s time to try a keratin treatment. Keratin treatments are known for their great ability to reduce frizz and flyaways for a smoother sleeker style.
What is the secret and why should you try it? “Keratin is a protein found naturally in skin, hair, and nails, in addition to other sources. In human hair, it acts as both an external protective shield and an internal structural protein. Keratin is depleted when hair is damaged physically, chemically or from environmental factors, such as the sun.” Keratin treatments use this natural protein to restore and protect your hair.
A common misconception is that keratin treatments are the same as a hair straightening service: this is not the case! A keratin treatment will not leave your curly hair straight: that’s not its purpose. A keratin treatment focuses on reducing frizz and fighting your hair’s pesky reaction to humidity. If you spend a lot of time in the sun or your summers at the beach: this treatment will be miracle-worker for your styling routine.
There are two options when it comes to keratin treatments: an express service and full service.
An express service is a budget friendly option with results that last between 3 to 4 weeks. The full keratin treatment boosts a longevity of anywhere between 6 to 8 weeks, and for some guests even longer. When investing in hair treatments is also so important to invest in the proper home care! You don’t want to give your hair an amazing change and treatment than reduce its effectiveness with incorrect at-home care. Taking care of your keratin treated hair is very important! There are specifically formulated shampoos, conditioners and even styling products which protect your treatment and give you the longevity out of it that you need. Selecting sulfate free shampoos and conditioners are essential to protecting your hair’s treatment. Too much chlorine or time spent at the pool will reduce the effectiveness of your treatment.
If you take care of your hair after your treatment you will love the results you see and feel in your hair. Interested in learning more about these treatments?
