What is a keratin treatment?

Keratin treatments are used to tame frizzy hair. A keratin treatment will not straighten your hair, but it will smooth it, adding shine and manageability.


During a keratin treatment, your stylist will use a mixture of strong chemicals to apply a coat of protein (keratin) to your hair. This process seals your hair’s cuticle (protective outer layer), to prevent the movement of moisture in and out of your strands. Your stylist will rough-dry your hair, then finish it off using a flat-iron, to seal and activate the coating.


The treatment usually takes about 1-3 hours, and lasts about 3 months. (A keratin treatment is different from hair relaxing, or chemical straightening, which lasts until your hair grows out.)
Keratin treatments can be very effective if you have coarse or unruly strands. However, as with any treatment involving strong chemicals and high heats, there are risks involved to your hair.

Our Process

  1. We blow dry your hair so that we have a great platform to work from

  2. We through spread [product 1,2,3] thoroughly throughout your hair so that we can get even coverage of the keratin treatment 

  3. We let it sit for 1 to 3 hours depending on your curl pattern or desired straightness 

  4. After letting it sit, we wash it out and do our normal hair straightening procedure and make sure you are happy with your results!

Care for After Treatment

Care during the 72 hours after your treatment is key for optimal and the longest-lasting results.  The means three days of strict adherence to these guidelines:

  • Do not get your hair wet!

  • When you shower, use a shower cap. The shower cap we sell has never let us down.

  • If you work out and/or sweat, get to a dryer asap.  Blow-dry and flat iron with medium to low heat as soon as possible.

  • No swimming, not even with a swim cap.

  • No saunas, baths, hot tubs, steam showers, skiing, skating.

  • Carry an umbrella and a loose rain hat, or even a plastic shower cap, everywhere if rain or fog is in the forecast.

  • When you wash your face or brush your teeth, use a shower cap or spa band to hold back your hair.  Long hair can get tucked into the back of your shirt to prevent it from falling into water.

  • We offer several brands – including Keratin Complex – of dry shampoo, which may be used in small doses.  But if you can stand it, embrace your three-day hair as it naturally is.

  • Repeat, do not allow your hair to get wet!  H2O in all forms – liquid, gas, even solid – is your enemy.

  • No kinking!

  • Avoid making any impressions on the hair from clips, ponytail holders, hats, or sunglasses.

  • Resist the urge to tuck your hair behind your ears.

  • No up-dos with bands or clips.

  • No braids.

  • At night, sleep with hair loose.
