All You Need Know About Keratin Hair Straightening

What’s all the fuss about Keratin Hair Straightening? We’ll tell you!

Picture this – you wake up in the morning and your hair is frizzy or is curling all over the place. So you plug in your straightener and spend half an hour trying to smoothen it into a more manageable state. Sounds tiring, doesn’t it?

This is the scenario faced by thousands of women every day – a daily struggle to make hair look smooth, soft and manageable throughout the day. However, there is an option – Keratin hair straightening.

Keratin straightening is currently one of the most popular hair straightening treatments. Aside from straightening and de-frizzing your hair, this treatment also boosts the shine of your hair and improves its texture. The wonderful thing about this treatment, is the main ingredient – keratin. It is a natural protein that is already present in your hair and makes your hair straight and shiny. Unfortunately, due to diet and lifestyle changes, the amount of keratin in your hair reduces. This makes your hair look duller and frizzier.

During this keratin smoothing treatment, keratin is artificially added to your hair. The treatment takes around 2 hours (depending on the length of your hair). The hair stylist will blow dry your hair to remove all moisture and will then use a brush to apply the keratin solution. You will need to abstain from washing your hair for 2-3 days after the treatment to let it work. You’ll need to use a keratin shampoo and conditioner – both of which need to be sulphate free – like the Wella hair care range. The effects of the treatment are known to last for two to two and a half months, and you’ll walk out with straight, shiny and smooth hair. While this is great, there are a few pointers to take into consideration.
