Define the Keratin Smoothing Treatment?
It is a specifically formulated rejuvenating and revitalizing hair treatment with the purpose of eliminating frizz and curl. Its advanced patent pending formulation is capable of restoring and restructuring the hair. This is done by infusing a special blend of natural keratin deep into the cuticle which has been damaged. The keratin is attached to the cuticle through the heat of the flat iron. This is to relax the sub-cuticle layer of the hair.
Is this similar to Chemical Straightening?
Actually, they are two different forms of services. Chemical straightening is able to break the bonds in the hair and will only grow out by the root. On the other hand, keratin therapy is capable of smoothening and relaxing the hair in order to eliminate frizz. With heat, maintenance of time is being cut drastically. Chemical straightening should not be done on a highly bleached or damaged hair. Keratin therapy is the best treatment for damaged or highly bleached hair.
What are the results which can be expected after the Treatment?
Hair will become more manageable and will have less time in styling. You will observe that it will become straighter and softer with added life and luster. The hair may be finger dried through heat from the hairdryer to achieve a natural frizz free straight finish. Or it could be blow-dried or ironed in order to have perfect straight hair in minutes.
Can you apply color on the Hair before the treatment?
Of course! The right time to do the treatment will be directly after coloring or chemically treating the hair. The color will be confined to extend the life of the color and to leave the hair vibrant. Nonetheless, you need to wait for two weeks after the treatment before you can color your hair.
What type of shampoo or conditioner will I be using?
Keratin Complex shampoo and conditioners are highly recommended. This is to ensure that your hair will remain to be infused with keratin. Regular shampoos have sodium chloride which can remove the keratin which has been infused in the hair.
