So what exactly is a keratin treatment? Simply, the hair is saturated with a keratin formula to restore the keratin levels in your the hair. This creates a silky, frizz-free, shiny look.
The first step is applying a Clarifying Shampoo which removes oil and buildup to prime the hair for treatment.
Your hair is dried, then the Keratin Smoothing Treatment is applied with a brush to small sections at a time and left on for 30 minutes.
After half an hour the treatment is rinsed out, then hair is blow dried again, and flat ironed meticulously.
It can feel like a long process (allow three hours), but the results are worth the wait.
Thinking of getting a treatment? Here is what you need to consider:
YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.
Cheaper keratin treatments can contain chemicals which may be very harmful, so it’s very important to do your research when choosing a salon, stylist and which kind of keratin treatment you are getting. If you aren’t willing to pay for a professional treatment, it might not be worth the risk of damaging your hair and scalp with a cheaper form of keratin treatment. Everyone’s hair needs are different, so going to a reputable salon will make all the difference.
Reds Hairdressing uses Cezanne Perfect Finish Smoothing Keratin Treatment. Compared to other chemical hair smoothing processes, the Cezanne keratin treatment does not contain formaldehyde and can improve hair from the inside out, by delivering a unique blend of keratin, botanical extracts and vitamins into the hair.
IT’S ACTUALLY A BETTER OPTION THAN STRAIGHTENING YOUR HAIR EVERY DAY.
Straightening your hair every day can be one the most damaging things you can do to your hair. So, if you are someone who is a day to day hair straightener, considering a keratin treatment might be the more healthy option for you.
HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?
If you use the right sulfate-free hair care and avoid washing daily, Cezanne can last up to three months, wearing out gradually.
