The keratin smoothing treatment is a smoothing regimen that uses keratin (the protein that hair is made of) and other ingredients to make curly strands soft and sleek so you can style your hair the way you want without a salon blowout. It’s the perfect solution for everyone’s biggest hair problem—unmanageable, frizzy hair—and will also loosen the curl of very kinky hair.
With a brush, the formula—which also contains silicone and protein compounds—is “painted” onto your hair, coating the cuticles (the outermost layer of strands). Then, because heat activates the ingredients, a flatiron is used to seal the solution, changing the hair’s shape. The entire process might take an hour or two. The result? Shiny, smooth, straight hair with body and loads of volume. A keratin treatment will truly transform your hair; your hair will take less time to blow-dry, you will no longer need to use a flatiron, and humidity won’t make your hair frizzy. Your hair will look and feel healthier.
The keratin will wash out slowly over time and your hair will return to its natural texture; the effects usually remain for three to four months. For longer-lasting results, you should use a sulfate-free shampoo and avoid washing your hair every day.
