One of the number one hair concerns that many of us have is frizzy hair. Whether you love to style your hair up or down, frizzy, dry and altogether lacklustre hair is never a nice thing! Have you ever looked at those who have perfectly styled, sleek and shiny hair with envy? We’re here to let you in on a little hair secret: keratin treatments.
Keratin treatments are a process that smooths out frizzy hair – leaving it silky, shiny and ultimately frizz-free. The treatment works by taking the hair in small sections then sealing the hair cuticles with a coat of protein that eliminates frizz and adds softness. Depending on the thickness and length of the hair, it can take anywhere from one to three hours for the process to be completed and it even holds up through the dreaded mist and rain. The hair should be left unwashed for three to four days following the treatment in order to give the solution the time it needs to work.
Keratin treatments are also hair-friendly, meaning they won’t leave your hair dead or damaged as some other chemical treatments can do. As our hair actually loses its own keratin protein over time, the treatment can help to add it back into our locks and nourish them. Keratin is a restorative treatment so it works to strengthen the shafts of the hair and helps your hair to be more resilient. The hair does need to have heat applied to it to lock in the treatment but as it can last up to six months, it’s much less damaging than having to straighten your hair every day!
So why should you get a keratin treatment?
Keratin treatments are great for anyone who struggles with major frizz or anyone who has thick, coarse hair. If you find yourself blow drying and straightening your hair on a regular basis, a keratin treatment is a much healthier option for your hair and won’t lead to it becoming dry and brittle. If you have curly hair and find yourself wanting a change, a keratin treatment can be a fantastic way to try something new with your hairstyle.
Keratin treatments are also the ideal morning time savers (and who doesn’t want to save time in the morning?). They can cut hair styling time in half and if you dread the thought of trying to tame your wild and unruly locks each morning, a keratin treatment will save you so much time and pain – plus, who doesn’t love an extra five minute sleep in?!
We are huge fans of keratin treatments, as we’re finding that more and more people are doing more harm than good to their hair by using heat on it every single day in order to tame their frizz. If you’re finding that you spend hours blow drying and straightening your hair or you’re just sick of trying to control the frizz factor, a keratin treatment could be just what you need to fall in love with your locks again!
