What is a Keratin Treatment?

If you have thick or curly hair, you probably can relate to the dreaded humidity. You know, your hair is looking decent when you style it but once you step foot outside, it all goes up in frizz.

If you’ve ever been frustrated with unruly, frizzed out hair and long for smooth, sleek locks, then a keratin treatment may be right for you.

Read on to learn more about keratin treatments in Michigan.

What is keratin?

Keratin is a protein that is naturally found in the hair that keeps the hair looking and feeling soft, shiny and manageable. Over time — with the use of styling tools and even the effects of the environment and nutrition — keratin can diminish. When this happens, the hair becomes dry, unruly, brittle and unmanageable.

Luckily, through today’s advanced haircare technology, hair treatments focused on restoring your hair’s keratin levels can dramatically change the texture of your hair for months at a time.

Benefits of a keratin treatment

The benefits of having a keratin hair treatment are multiple.

First, your hair is transformed from dry and frizzy to soft, straight and smooth. Further, with certain keratin treatments, this transformation can last several months. Hair is better able to be styled and drying time is cut in half after your treatment. Some people like having a keratin treatment done before a special event while others simply choose to have the treatment done several times a year to enjoy the benefits at all times.

How is a keratin treatment performed?

A keratin treatment can take up to two hours. First, Beth will cleanse your hair of any impurities. Then, she applies the keratin to your hair and blow dry it to set it. And finally, the hair is straightened with a flatiron as a last step.

With certain keratin treatments, you cannot get your hair wet for three days afterwards. Beth will review in detail the aftercare process before you leave the salon.
