Keratin Smoothing Treatment
At k2 Hair Design Wolverhampton

What is a keratin smoothing treatment

A keratin  is a smoothing treatment that seals the hair cuticle with a coating of enriched protein to eliminate frizz and add softness and shine. 

The latest Keratin Treatments don’t break the bonds inside the hair but form a smooth coating over the hair. They are not permanent, so will wash out over time (Usually last between 2-3 months)

What's the difference between a Keratin treatment and a smoothing treatment?

Traditionally, the keratin smoothing treatments contained formaldehyde, which affected the hairdresser and the client. 

The latest smoothing treatments do not contain formaldehyde and therefore are more gentle on the hair. 

Whilst this won’t give you the same poker-straight results, they will smooth kinks and curls and reduce frizz

Keratin Smoothing Side Effects

The hair can be slightly discoloured after a keratin treatment, so always book your colour afterwards

When first done, the hair may feel a bit limp and you may actually miss the volume in your hair. This soon returns after a few washes

It can be quite a lengthy procedure, approximately 2-3 hours, so book in for a full consultation before you start

 

Additional Keratin Smoothing Information

Try to leave it 48 hours, after your treatment, before you shampoo

Use a Sulphate-free shampoo and conditioner i.e. The latest R.A.W. range from Biolage. If there is Sulphate in the shampoo it can strip the hair of its natural oils (and the keratin treatment) therefore shortening your results
