Need To Know – Keratin Treatments
It’s definitely a salon buzzword these days, and a whole slew of us would surely benefit from a professional keratin treatment. Soft, shiny hair with no frizz that’s easy to style – what’s not to love? Before you accept keratin as your hair’s personal savior however, be sure that you really understand what this miracle treatment can and can’t do for your hair.
Sadly, there is a minority of us who shouldn’t opt for keratin treatments. People with fine, straight hair are not good candidates for keratin treatments. The curlier and frizzier your hair is, the more you’ll benefit from getting one. The science behind the treatment revolves around the fact that frizzy hair is more porous than straight hair, and a keratin treatment fills in those pores with keratin, a compound that is naturally found in all human hair. Now, you can have naturally frizzy hair, or you can create it by over processing it with heat and chemical styling techniques, but the application of a keratin treatment will result in increased shine and less frizz making your hair much easier to style.
Not all keratin treatments are the same either. Your stylist can help you decide which formula is best for you hair, particularly if you have blonde hair. The treatment can change the tonality of your color if it’s not specifically created for light hair colors. Your stylist will also give you excellent post-treatment hair care advice, such as not shampooing or tying your hair into a ponytail for 48 hours afterwards. You’ll also need to invest in a sulfate-free shampoo to keep your hair looking its best for as long as possible.
