Keratin Hair Treatments: What to Expect

 
Do you want smoother, straighter hair? Keratin smoothing treatments may be just the thing you are looking for to simplify your hair routine and give you the look you crave.



Keratin is a protein that is naturally in your hair.

The line of Keratin Smoother we recommend is Global Keratin. GK Hair is made from sheep wool through an environmentally friendly process. GKhair is the first and only company to harness the beauty benefits of Juvexin, a protein compound which is delivered to the hair in its natural state.
 
The GKhair Hair Taming System with Juvexin restores hair by repairing and providing long-term conditioning and protection. Juvexin is Hair’s foundation in creating manageable, frizz-free, beautiful looking hair for all those who want it.

How it Works:  Our stylist applies the Juvexin to your hair and then uses the heat of a flat iron to seal it in. The treatment takes about 1 1/2 – 2 hours, depending on the length of your hair.
 
Save Time: If you want straight hair, this Keratin Hair Straightening will cut your blow-dry time by about 50%.
 
Frizz:  You will not have frizzy hair after this treatment, even in the humid Atlanta weather!

What you need to know about Keratin Hair Treatments:

 
  • Wait at least 2-3 days after getting this Keratin treatment before washing your hair. Also, avoid strenuous activities that cause you to sweat for the same period.
  • At home maintenance after your keratin Smoothing Treatment: 2-3 day no-wash period, use sulfate free shampoo and conditioner to help maintain the treatment. This is very important. Sulfate Free Shampoos and Conditioners, which we carry including Oribe and Global Keratin.
  • Expect Results to last 3 – 6 months with proper at home maintenance.
Keratin treatments won't make your hair break, but the flat ironing might. The hair breakage has nothing to do with the treatments and everything to do with the flat irons that are used to dry and seal the hair afterward. Some stylists may use a flat iron that is way too hot and scorches hair, making it break off.

Is Keratin Smoothing Safe Formaldehyde Factor
 
You may have heard about formaldehyde in salon keratin products. 
Formaldehyde has been linked to health problems, especially for people who regularly work with it. The main health concern about formaldehyde in keratin products has been about salon workers, not people who get keratin hair treatments because the levels of formaldehyde in GK Hair Keratin Treatment are very low, similar to the amount emitted by a banana, so it is safe for you and your stylist.
