What is a Keratin Hair Treatment?

A keratin hair treatment is a process that will straighten and smooth out curly or wavy hair. The process reduces hair curl and fizz and adds silkiness and shine while conditioning the hair for up to three months. It’s safe to use on all types of hair and even those that have been treated with color.


How does it work? A stylist will apply the keratin treatment to your hair and use the heat of a flat iron to seal it in. The process can take up to a couple of hours depending on the length of your hair.

Can I wash my hair right away? You should wait 3 to 4 days before washing your hair so as to give time for the treatment to work into your hair.

Will my hair still get frizzy? After the treatment you can walk out on moist or light raining days and not have to worry about your hair becoming frizzy.

Is there any upkeep involved? You should use a sodium-sulfate-free shampoo to help maintain the treatment.

How long does the keratin treatment last? After getting the treatment it should last 2 to 3 months.

Will I still have blow dry my hair straight? If you normally style your hair straight after getting the keratin treatment it will take you about half the time to blow dry it straight.
