frequently asked questions
what is keratin treatment?
it is a specially formulated, revitalizing and rejuvenating treatment for the hair that eliminates up to 95% of frizz and about 50% of curl. the advanced formulation restores and restructures hair by infusing a special blend of natural keratin deep into the cuticle. the keratin is bonded into the cuticle by the heat of the flat iron to relax the hair’s sub-cuticle layer..
how much time will service take?
this depends on hair length, type, and texture. it also is determined by which keratin treatment you receive.
keratin express: 1 – 1.5 hours
brazilian blowout / keratin complex: 2 – 2.5 hours
what results can be expected after the treatment?
the hair will be more manageable and take much less time to style. it will be noticeably softer and straighter, with added life and shine. most important – up to 95% frizz-free hair!
what happens after treatment?
hair will gradually return to its original state, but in better condition.
what kind of shampoo should be used after treatment?
we offer several different keratin safe shampoos. any shampoo you use must be free of sulfates and sodium-chloride (also known as “salt”)
can the treatment be done on chemically treated hair, previously relaxed or straightened hair?
yes, but it is recommended to do this service after a chemical service.
how many days after the treatment before i can get hair wet or wash hair?
this varies with treatment –
brazilian blowout: once treatment is complete there is no down time.
keratin complex and keratin express: you must wait before you can shampoo. (keratin complex: 72 hours / keratin express: 24 hours)
during that time you cannot pull your hair back, use hair clips or hair bands to secure hair. it is very important not to get hair wet at all during this time. if by chance you do, simply blow dry and flat iron hair (on low to medium heat) immediately. it is very important to keep hair as straight and smooth as possible during this time!
can i swim in a pool or go to the beach?
salt water or chlorinated pool will reduce the life of your treatment. it is recommended that you apply leave in conditioner prior to going in pool/ocean and rinse immediately after.
can the treatment be done on pregnant or nursing women?
no. it is not recommended.
can hair be colored before the treatment?
yes! a great time to have the treatment done would be directly after color since the keratin seals in the color and improves shine! however, you can also color hair 3 weeks after treatment.
how long will the treatment last?
keratin express: approximately 4 weeks
brazilian blowout / keratin complex: approximately 12 weeks
(how long the treatment lasts will lasts varies on daily washing, lifestyle and maintenance, provided that you follow all after care instructions.)
