Keratin for Curly Hair
When people think of keratin treatments they tend to confuse them with a chemical straightening. Chemical straightening is permanent and straightens everything. The great thing about keratin treatments is that it’s temporary and doesn’t have to straighten your curls; although it can if that’s the result you desire. But for those who want to keep their curls, there’s one great benefit to getting a keratin treatment … to tame the frizz! And before we go any further, pay attention guys because this applies to you too!
Why Does Hair Frizz
Each strand of hair has cuticles along the outer layer of the hair much like the scales on a fish. These cuticles tend to be more porous with coarse, curly hair than what is seen on straight hair. As these cuticles expand, it creates the frizzy look you know and hate.
How Keratin Helps Frizz
Keratin is a great way to tame the frizz, make your hair shine, and make those curls look amazing. It will relax the curl a bit but it also makes the texture more manageable, which helps cut down on the frizz. The treatment can be left on for different lengths of time to achieve different results. Your Full Spectrum stylists will help your determine what you want your desired results to be and will work with you to achieve the look you want.
How Long Does it Last?
This treatment will typically last somewhere between 3 to 5 months depending on what you do between treatments. While not required, there are tips people swear by to help your treatment last as long as possible. Some suggestions include:
- Wash your hair less; using a dry shampoo between washes keeps it from looking greasy
- When you do wash your hair use warm, not hot, water to rinse
- Switch to a silk pillowcase; cotton is drying and brings out frizz
- Use sulfate-free keratin shampoo
- Use a boar bristle brush; this moves oils from the roots to the ends where it tends to be dryer
