What is keratin hair treatment?

Keratin is a natural protein already found in the hair, nails, and skin of the human body. In the process of aging, the protein content of our body decreases, as do keratin levels. Through this treatment, keratin covers the hair and gives nutrients. Before a salon professional applies keratin, the hair is given a deep cleanse shampoo to open the cuticles so the keratin bonds can work its magic on the hair is used. These released bonds will then be resealed in a straighter position. After covering the hair with a mixture of keratin liquid, a flat iron is used to enclose and fix the formula. This step helps straighten hair by repairing damaged hair follicles. This procedure can take anywhere from one and a half hours to three hours, the results can last anywhere from three to six months depending on how the aftercare shampoos used and the amount of exposure the hair has to external factors(wind, swimming, sun, and harsh shampoos)

3 main advantages of keratin strengthening treatment

Keratin is included in many shampoos and conditioners, but the best results come from a salon treatment performed by a specialist. Let’s briefly go over some of the main benefits of this method:

  1. Less harsh option compared to other types of hair straightening treatments. Keratin treatment is distinctive among standard hair straightening techniques because it is a less harsh option. Many other treatments like Chemical Straightening (Hair Relaxing) and Japanese Straightening have numerous side effects. Through the Chemical Straightening process, protein bonds of hair break to change it from curly to straight. But it is not as simple as it seems. The number of breaks is a critical factor that is hard to control. In practice, excessive breaks lead hair to go limp and inadequate breaks are ineffectual. As in Hair Relaxing, Japanese Straightening treatment needs careful consideration, too. Although the result can be long-lasting, the damages are undeniable. Moreover, the process has several steps and takes a very long time to apply. Instead, keratin acts like a super-strong deep conditioner with less severe concerns than the techniques mentioned above.

  2. Keratin treatment does not have an "on & off" effect on hair while it grows After keratin treatment, the silky-smooth hair gradually grows back into its original structure. After a few months, the straight effect fades out, so hair will not look flattened at the ends and curly at the roots. There is a slight chance that newly-grown hair is recognizable then. In that case, unlike some other harmful treatments, keratin treatment can be done repeatedly. keratin treatments have been reported to give even better results on repeated usage.

  3. Keratin provides beauty and ease in your lifestyle Keratin treatment offers two to three months of manageability, especially if your hair is thick or frizzy. Without eliminating natural texture, various hairstyling techniques are applicable. Moreover, some people estimate keratin treatment reduces the time needed to dry their hair considerably.
