Next time you visit Bon Vivant Salon for a haircut, make sure to ask about our keratin treatments. Our keratin treatment is a great way to straighten your hair and remove frizz. Not only will it leave your hair smoother and softer for up to six months, but this treatment will also add luster and shine while strengthening the individual hair strands. Read on to learn more about this chemical process and whether it’s right for you.
What Is A Keratin Treatment?
Keratin treatment, also known as a Brazilian blowout, is a treatment derived from protein, usually wool, feathers, or horns. Most treatments contain formaldehyde, which is the ingredient that provides straighter and more manageable hair. The process involves applying the product to your wet or dry hair, where it will sit for approximately 30 minutes. With the treatment still in, your hair will be flat ironed to seal it in. The whole process, from start to finish, can take several hours but the benefits are usually worth the wait. These are:
- Smoothness and shine (less frizz)
- Greater manageability (works great for thick, frizzy hair)
- Improved health (keratin can strengthen the hair, making it less susceptible to breakage)
- Longer hair (fewer damaged ends means your hair will grow longer)
- Results that last (can last up to six months if you don’t wash your hair frequently)
Ideal For Curly Hair
Many curly-haired individuals struggle with fragile ends that split, making it more difficult to grow. When you receive a keratin treatment at our Woodstock hair salon, you will discover that your hair will break less frequently whether you decide to straighten it or not. For individuals who don’t want to straighten their hair, we can apply a different form of heat other than a flat iron to ensure the product seals in. The keratin will loosen your curl pattern, making your hair more manageable and less prone to breakage. Additionally, you no longer need to apply heat daily, such as flat irons and blow dryers, which can be damaging to your hair.
Another benefit is that it will eliminate frizz. Are you sick of flyaways and a shine-less texture? This treatment is perfect for you, especially if you live in the humid climate of Roswell, GA. Ask your hairstylist if s/he thinks this treatment is right for you, as it isn’t for everyone. People with dry and fine hair may experience additional damage from the formaldehyde. Additionally, we do not recommend it for pregnant women.
Many customers ask if they can do keratin treatments on their own at home. The answer is yes; however, you won’t get the same results and long-lasting quality as you do at the salon. As a result, we recommend coming into Bon Vivant Salon, where you will be seen by a professional hairstylist who has years of experience working with this treatment.
How To Make It Last?
We strongly recommend keratin treatments if your hair is thick, frizzy, brittle, and hard to manage. The cost of one treatment will vary depending on the length and thickness of your hair but it generally costs hundreds. Many of our clients ask how they can make it last longer and we always recommend the following suggestions:
- Spend less time in the pool, as chlorine can affect the longevity of the treatment
- Buy shampoo and conditioner that is free of sodium chloride and sulfates, which can strip the treatment out of your hair
- Avoid ponytails for a few days, as this can put a bend in your new hairstyle
- Don’t wash your hair right after treatment – wait at least three days before wetting your hair
This is a great way to straighten your hair or loosen your curl pattern for stress-free styling. Keratin will also protect your hair from environmental pollutants that can be surprisingly damaging to the hair.
