Keratin Treatments, what is it and how does it benefit me?

So its hot out right? Like sweltering, underboob sweating, hair frizzing hot. You blow dry your hair and within half an hour your hair is double the size and the hour you just spent on styling your hair was totally wasted.

A keratin treatment might be exactly what you need. How the treatment works is not through the use of keratin, though. To make hair straighter, a solution containing a formaldehyde derivative or (the much safer) glyoxylic acid is worked through the hair to break the bonds and reseal them in a straighter position. The solution is then blow-dried and sealed with a flat iron, and the results can last anywhere from three to six months. The treatment works well on most hair types, and we recommend it for anyone who wants to reduce frizz, boost shine, or cut out blow-drying or straightening their hair on a regular basis.

The treatment takes a few hours, though it varies based on hair length and type. Depending on the texture and density of your hair, you can anticipate your salon visit to be anywhere from two to four hours.

The cardinal rule of keratin treatments is to stay away from water and ponytails for at least three days. You don't want to risk creating a bend in your newly-straightened hair. The key to maintaining your treatment for as long as possible is using a sulfate-free shampoo on the days you wash your hair.

For those with natural curls, DO NOT wet your hair for three days. We also recommend using sodium chloride-free hair products and to wrap your hair in a silk or satin scarf (or pillowcase) to keep the moisture locked in your hair as the treatment can cause your hair to dry out faster. Treatments can last up to six months, if after care is followed correctly.
