Keratin Hair Conditioning Treatments

Keratin is defined as the fibrous structural protein of hair, nails and epithelial cells found in the outermost layers of the skin. Keratin is an essential building block of our hair, nails and skin.

Some types of keratin also regulate vital cellular activities like protein production and cell growth.

The aim of the treatment is to restore and rebuild the damaged areas by treating hair with a property that’s already in it: keratin.

Keratin is a strong protein that is key to hair maintenance, often lost over time due to age, chemical services and products.

The keratin treatment simply puts that protein back in locks, adding a layer of protein to hair, strengthening it, relaxing it, making it more manageable and giving the hair a salon shine.

First, the client’s hair will be washed thoroughly, then keratin is applied in a serum form to each strand, treating your locks section by section.

Heat is then applied to the hair to activate the treatment as hair is straightened meticulously.

Once it looks straighter, sleeker and smoother than it has ever looked in whole life, it’s time to wash the hair again, rinsing out the treatment, then drying and straightening it again.

The biggest misconception about keratin treatments is that they are hair-straightening treatments

A keratin hair treatment is actually a hair relaxing treatment, smoothing out the frizz and making the hair easier to straighten.

Forget about frizzy hair after treatment. Walk out in the moist or light rain and the hair won’t change. Keratin treatments won’t make hair break, but the flat-ironing might.

The hair breakage has nothing to do with the treatments and everything to do with the flat irons that are used to dry and seal the hair afterwards.

Keratin is more of a restorative treatment, even if one has good hair type; it still strengthens the hair shaft and makes your hair more resilient.

But don’t expect to get sleek hair for twelve weeks. Keratin may act as a conditioner by filing areas where scales of the hair cuticle have lifted. There are after-care recommendations for getting a keratin hair treatment.

Experts advised not to wash hair, tie it up or style it in any way that could kink it for at least 48 hours. For as long as the keratin treatment lasts and is also recommended to wash the hair with a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner.
