People who were born with naturally curly and wavy hair know the struggle of trying to tame their locks on a daily basis.  Instead of having to blow dry and flat iron your hair everyday a Keratin Treatment takes care of this for you so you can spend less time worrying about your hair and more time going about your day.  Here is everything you need to know about Keratin Treatments:

  • Keratin Treatment Rebuilds Damaged Hair:

Some people believe that this treatment, or any hair treatment for that matter, is bad for your hair.  The treatment itself rebuilds damaged areas of your hair by putting protein back into these broken pieces.  This increases the shine of your hair and lessens any frizz.  However, keeping your hair frizz free requires the help of hair products, do not rely solely on the Keratin Treatment for that perfect frizz free look.  

  • Once You Get the Keratin Treatment You Will Need a New Shampoo:

In order to keep your treatment fresh and help it last longer, you will need to purchase a sulfate-free shampoo.  This can most likely be bought at the salon where you obtained the treatment but you can also find this shampoo at any drug or convenience store.  

  • If You Are Looking for a Short Hair Cut this Treatment Might be Right for You:

A lot of people with curly and wavy hair are afraid to try a short hairstyle due to the fear of having a triangle of poofy hair framing their face.  This is especially a fear for people with curly and thick hair.  Luckily, this treatment allows people to get any cut or style they want by taming your locks and keeping them poof-free.

  • At Home Treatments vs. Salon Treatments:

It is possible for you to obtain the same look of a keratin treatment at your home, however it will last between a week and a month instead of 2-5 months after getting it done at a salon.  Professionals not only know the best treatment for your hair,  but they also know what treatments to use for light hair so the tone and color doesn’t change.  

  • Products You Should Look For After Treatment:

As stated previously, you must invest in a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner which is key for longevity.  It may also be smart to invest in a dry shampoo as you will not be able to wash your hair for at least 48 hours after your treatment or put it up in order to let the Keratin settle.  Some oil products are perfect for using on wet hair in order to soften and moisturize your locks.
