What is Keratin Treatment
Keratin treatments are all about taming your wild hair, but how do they do that? Keratin is a naturally occurring protein it’s the main structural component of your hair. So when you get a keratin treatment in Vancouver, you aren’t putting a product on top of your hair, you’re bonding additional keratin to the amount already in your hair. That makes a keratin treatment perfect if you’re looking for a more natural styling option.
Once the new keratin is bonded to your hair, your strands have the full structural support they need. That means your hair doesn’t just look healthier, it actually is. No wonder keratin treatments are the perfect way to make your hair shiny, sleek and strong!
Everything you need to know about the keratin treatment process in Vancouver.
The keratin treatment process seals your hair cuticles, repairing damage and protecting them from future issues.
The process starts with a wash, we Blow dry the hair completely, then we apply the treatment, allowing it to be absorbed by the hair. After that, we rinse then it’s blow dry time! For the final step, we use a flat iron to lock in the keratin. The whole process takes about two to three hours.
Then you’re ready to step out of the salon with your frizz and unwanted texture eliminated.
The last step in your keratin treatment? Enjoying your new, hassle-free hair.
The keratin treatment will fade your salon hair colour, so if you colour your hair, we recommend booking your colouring appointment for after the keratin treatment except if your hair is highlighted! In that case, the lightener could reduce the life the keratin treatment, so lighten your hair before the treatment.
Why does trust matter when it comes to keratin treatments?
When you’re doing a keratin treatment in Vancouver, it’s important to make sure you trust your hairstylist. Keratin treatments are customized to your individual needs. Because of that, you want to make sure you are working with a stylist who listens to what you want and knows how to handle your hair. Done correctly, the treatment will last for 8 to 20 weeks, depending how often you wash and style it. Keep in mind, too, that a slight re-growth will come in with your hair’s natural texture.
What if you want to have completely straight hair? That’s where Japanese Straightening comes in! This incredible process functions like a reverse perm, making your hair slick and straight.
Maintaining your keratin treatment
Keratin treatments take two to three days to fully set. As a result, right after you get your keratin treatment in Vancouver done, you need to care for it. For those first two to three days, avoid washing your hair so you won’t strip the keratin away.
After three days, you can basically go back to your normal routine. Just avoid shampooing your hair with products that contain sulfates or sodium.
Sulfates can strip hair, which means it can lift your keratin treatment. As for sodium, it can actually dissolve keratin. Clarifying shampoos can also remove keratin.
So, for at least three weeks after your treatment, please steer clear of clarifying shampoos. Once you reach that point, you can use them again, but try to limit yourself to using clarifying shampoo to once a week at most.
We would suggest using a shampoo and conditioner combination that works well on your hair and is free from sulfates and sodium.
