Will a Keratin treatment work for my hair ?

Keratin treatments and products are best for thick, curly,frizzy or coarse hair. Because they actually repair hair. Keratin treatments are also good for damaged or chemically treated hair (colored, permed, relaxed, highlighted or bleached). Keratin treatments are not intended for fine, straight or thin hair – but hair care products containing keratin are awesome for these hair types looking to repair the damage, fight frizz and protect strands.

Do Keratin treatments damage hair?

No. Sealing keratin into cuticles can actually repair and strengthen hair. Formaldehyde, which is found in salon keratin treatments, is not harmful but is a strong solution if not used correctly, so check with your salon before you receive a keratin treatment. Haircare products with keratin are the best option for formaldehyde-free options.

The Benefits of Keratin

  • Adds shine and softness to strands
  • Smoother, frizz-free strands that are unfazed by humidity
  • Moisture and damage repair
  • Dramatically decreases drying and styling time
  • Seals hair color
  • Won’t grow out, so with regular shampooing, the hair slowly returns to its pre-treatment state.

Maintenance for Keratin treatments

  1. Wash hair less frequently to maintain the look longer. For maximum longevity, use a shampoo that doesn’t contain Sodium Chloride or sulphates. A product with UV protection is important too.
  2. Exposure to chlorine, saltwater, or excessive sun exposure will shorten the lifespan of the treatment
  3. Hair can be cut immediately after the treatment

Hair can be colored before or two weeks afterward (coloring hair prior to the treatment seals in the color, helping to prevent fading), except Keratin Express Treatment where both coloring and smoothing can be done in one day.

There are so many effective ways to smooth the hair while keeping it protected by using the right products and techniques—however, keep in mind that a keratin treatment might not even be the right option.

We suggest booking a professional consulation and getting the best advise possible!

When I walked into Inspirations Salon my hair was way over due a haircut for a month and I felt aged tired and uncomfortable with myself. The moment Natalia picked up her shears and grabbed onto my bushy head of hair and removed and shaped my wild head of hair I knew I was in the hands of an “Expert.
