KERATIN HAIR TREATMENT: WHAT IS IT?

Keratin hair treatment is actually a hair straightening treatment in which formaldehyde and a keratin-based protein product are applied liberally through the length of your hair and then subjected to blow dry treatment following by flat ironing. This Brazilian hair treatment is a semi-permanent professional treatment that allows you to enjoy soft, frizz-free shiny locks.

 

KERATIN HAIR TREATMENT: HOW DOES IT WORK?

This treatment infuses keratin into the cuticles of your hair and is known to work wonders on highlighted and colour-processed hair. Keratin is actually a structural protein that is the key component of hair and nails. The keratin used during the treatment reaches the cortex of hair and helps repair as well as smooth out the strands that have been damaged. When you go for this treatment, your hair expert would apply the keratin hair straightening product along the length of your hair and then seal it in with the help of heated flat irons. It takes at least 1 hour 30 minutes for a keratin treatment session to get over. It may take a longer time if your hair is long. Generally, you are advised to refrain from washing your hair for three days. The straightening effect lasts for about 5-6 months. Results may vary depending upon your hair texture and growth.

  • It offers you silky, shiny and straight hair that looks healthy and manageable.
  • This treatment marks an end to your bad hair days!
  • It is considered safe even for colour treated hair.
  • Keratin treatment helps close cuticles and this in turn protects your hair from the damaging effects of the sun.

 

KERATIN HAIR TREATMENT: CONS

  • The treatment though hailed as ‘natural’ and ‘safe’, does involve the use of chemicals.
  • The treatment is costly.
  • The effects of this treatment last only for 6 months at the most.
