Why You Should Consider a Keratin Treatment

If you’re looking for a way to add intense shine to your hair, reduce frizz and make your hair more manageable, then it’s time to consider a keratin treatment. Whether you have frizzy hair, damaged hair, or simply want to achieve a more polished look, keratin treatments can be a fantastic option for your hair.

What is keratin & why is it good for your hair?

Keratin is a protein that is naturally found in your hair and nails, and when applied topically, it will help to repair damage, add shine, and make your hair more manageable. Many keratin treatments on the market today also contain other beneficial ingredients like vitamins, antioxidants, and botanicals that can further nourish and protect your hair.

How does a keratin treatment work?

A keratin treatment is a chemical process that softens, smoothens, and polishes your hair. The process involves infusing keratin into the hair shaft. The keratin coats the hair and helps to smooth down the cuticle, resulting in sleeker, smoother, and less frizzy hair. The keratin treatment procedure generally begins with a clarifying shampoo to prepare your hair for the keratin treatment. The stylist will then dry your hair. This will help the keratin treatment to penetrate your strands. Next, the treatment is applied to your hair. Finally, your hair will be rinsed, blow-dyed and flat ironed to seal the keratin into the hair cuticle.

What are the benefits of a keratin treatment?

There are many benefits to keratin treatments, including:

  • Creates a smooth, polished look for your hair
  • Significantly reduces frizz (even in humidity)
  • Reduced damaged & split ends
  • Increased shine & manageability
  • Protection from environmental damage, coloring & heat styling
  • Reduced styling time

How long does a keratin treatment last?

Keratin treatments are semi-permanent and may last three months or longer. The length of time that a keratin treatment lasts will vary depending on the type of treatment used, as well as how often you wash your hair. Not washing your hair more than a few times a week will extend the longevity of your keratin treatment.

Are there any drawbacks to keratin treatments?

While keratin treatments are generally safe and effective, there are a few potential drawbacks to consider.

Firstly, you’ll need to spend around three hours in the salon for a classic keratin treatment. You’ll be investing time to receive the treatment, but you’ll gain that time back from the reduced styling time after the keratin treatment.

Secondly, certain keratin treatments still include a noxious chemical called formaldehyde. It has an unpleasant odor and is harmful to breathe in. There are also other hair straightening treatments on the market, such as relaxers, which include substances like ammonium thioglycolate and sodium hydroxide. These chemicals are used to break the bonds in your hair, which can result in a really awkward growing out phase if you don’t get a frequent relaxer for your hair.

Finally, some keratin treatments might cause your hair color to change, necessitating a tone treatment to restore balance.

How much does a keratin treatment cost?

Keratin treatments range from around $85 for an instant treatment to $350 for the classic version. Depending on the length of your hair, you may need additional product.

Is a keratin treatment right for you?

Only formaldehyde-free keratin treatments are used in our salon. We trust in our Cezanne Keratin Smoothing Treatments because they promise not to use harsh chemicals and have the evidence to back it up. With no trade-offs, the product delivers amazing outcomes.

Overall, keratin treatments can be a great way to have polished and more manageable hair that is less frizzy. However, it’s critical to consider the advantages and disadvantages before making a purchase. If you’re considering a keratin treatment, be sure to talk to your stylist to see if it’s the right choice for you.
