The Low Down On Keratin Smoothing Treatment
Keratin Smoothing Treatment is a different way to get your hair in a smoother and healthier looking fashion. Your average hair smoothing process, such as with a straightener, damages the protein bonds in the hair and causes the hair to reform in a straight shape. As you can imagine, breaking your hair isn’t the best way to go about creating a new style. At Moodie Hair Design and Spa in Ottawa, we focus on keeping your hair in the best condition possible.
Unlike some other treatments, one of the major benefits of Keratin Smoothing Treatment is that it will work on any hair type. A lot of companies make similar claims about other treatment options but many of them fall short—either not working or only partially working. Keratin Smoothing Treatment is the real deal and it works by repairing the structure of your hair. Even people who have healthy hair can benefit from Keratin treatments; the process will strengthen even healthier hair.
While the Keratin Smoothing Treatment will work for everyone, it is best for people who have trouble getting their hair under control all the time. Those who have naturally straighter hair will probably want a less intensive treatment.
A Keratin Treatment works in four different stages: a pre-treatment, an application, additional conditioning, and a touch-up phase. Each one of these phases is important in order to get the most out of your treatment. Overall, the whole process takes about 90 minutes.
During the first stage, your hair is cleaned thoroughly. As many people would expect, this part of the process cleans debris and oils off of the hair to make it easier for the treatment to access each and every hair. What it also does is separate the layers of the hair to allow better access.
Keratin is applied during the treatment process where the cuticles of your hair are targeted. This process works with the hair to smooth it naturally without damaging it like other treatments would. In the third stage–additional Keratin in combination with conditioning agents–work to strengthen your hair. At the same time, this step will aid in restoring both the smoothness and shine you love to see in your hair.
Before you are done, professionals use a blow dryer and then a flat iron to help the Keratin shape your hair. The heat also helps to lock the treatment into your hair. When the treatment is locked in, it creates a barrier against humidity that will prevent your hair from becoming frizzy again right away.
A Keratin hair treatment will last for up to two and a half months. During that time you won’t have to worry about your hair becoming frizzy again. You could enjoy walking in the rain without worrying about your hair. Your hair treatment will take a few days to set in completely so you should avoid washing your hair for up to four days after the treatment. After you have waited the proper period, you can resume washing your hair; however, to help preserve the treatment, you should use a sodium-sulfate-free shampoo.
If you notice any signs of allergic reaction during your treatments, you should tell your professional. There are other hair straightening methods you can use if you are allergic to Keratin. You should also be aware that there are chemicals in the Keratin Smoothing Treatment that are, although safe, not appreciated by everyone.
The average Keratin treatment can cost anywhere from $250 to $400. This may seem like a lot of money but when you factor in the time it will save you in the morning, most people will agree that it is worth it. With Keratin treatments, your blow drying time is also cut down by up to 60% depending on your hair type.
A common question when it comes to Keratin Smoothing Treatment is how it differs from Japanese straightening. The process of Japanese straightening actually reconditions your hair utilizing heat to leave permeant straight hair. Keratin runs very little risk of damaging your hair while there is a chance that Japanese straightening can damage your hair due to the heat.
