What Makes Someone a Good Candidate for Keratin Treatment?
Let me ask you a question, do you want manageable, shiny, frizz-free hair? If the answer to this is yes, then you’re likely a great candidate for keratin treatment! Whether you have curly, unmanageable, or frizzy hair, a keratin smoothing treatment can smooth out the hair cuticle, making your hair straighter, shinier, and easier to style.
The keratin treatment is a chemical process that eliminates frizz, softens, and smoothes the hair follicle. After applying the product to your hair, we’ll blow-dry it to activate the products in the hair, and then flat iron it, which seals the product into the hair. You may be left with pin-straight hair or it may just loosen your curl pattern.
Great for All Hair Types
Depending on your hair's natural texture, we can use products of different strengths, which enables us to treat thin and thick hair. From hair texture to curl pattern, we can treat hair of all types.
You can get smooth, silky hair for the long term with keratin treatments, which last for 5-7 months. While curly hair types will need to repeat the treatment a little sooner (every 3 months) to avoid their natural curl pattern showing in the roots, the benefits are well worth it.
Benefits of a Keratin Treatment
- Strengthens hair - Keratin is a natural protein that is already found in your hair, skin, and nails. However, it can become easily depleted with time and a lack of keratin leaves you with weak, brittle hair. Restoring the protein to your hair strengthens it, reducing breakage and making your hair healthier overall.
- Reduces Styling time - Get straighter, silkier hair without damaging it with heat tools all the time. Your hair will be much easier to style and requires less heat which can cause damage to your hair because it will always look like you just stepped out of the salon.
- Eliminates Frizz - Keratin eliminates frizz by smoothing overlapping cells to form hair strands and reduces split ends by bonding the hair back together.
- Protects Against Damage - In addition to reducing heat damage to your hair, it also protects your hair from pollutants because keratin acts as a barrier that prevents your hair from drying out and from pollutants penetrating the hair follicles.
Sick of constantly blowdrying, straightening, or curling your hair? A keratin treatment is a simple one appointment treatment that can last for months and will leave your hair more appealing and manageable so you don’t have to use so many products.
The process can take anywhere from 1 to 3 hours depending on the length, type, and thickness of your hair. Post-treatment, we will wash your hair and you will be able to style it or do whatever you want with it from there.
Other treatments require you to wait 3 days before you can wash and also prevent you from tying it back or using hair accessories. At BKT Beauty, we use heat-activated products so you can enjoy the freedom that comes with styling your hair how you want to. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
