Dealing with frizzy, damaged, or dry hair? Keratin could be exactly what you need! This impressive substance can eliminate frizz and leave your hair silky-soft.
So, What is Keratin?
Keratin is a naturally occurring protein. The outer layer of your hair is made of keratin. Everybody's hair contains a different amount of keratin. When your hair is damaged, that means that the outer layer of keratin on your hair is damaged.
What is a Keratin Treatment?
You might have seen keratin treatments advertised at salons. Such treatments add keratin back into your hair. First, a special serum of keratin is applied. Then, the keratin is heated and infused into your hair with a flat iron.
Are Keratin Treatments Effective?
Keratin treatments are amazingly effective. They can take the unruliest and frizziest mane and turn it into a shiny, healthy head of hair. The keratin works by sealing the cuticle of your hair to create a glossy look.
How Long Do Keratin Treatments Last?
On average, keratin treatments last between one and two months. The amount of time a keratin treatment will last for you depends on how often you wash your hair as well as how often you expose your hair to chlorine, saltwater, and the sun.
Will a Keratin Treatment Work for My Hair?
Keratin treatments are designed for thick and coarse hair. Of course, keratin is great for damaged locks, so don’t worry if you’ve permed, relaxed, or bleached your hair.
If you have fine hair, avoid salon keratin treatments. An extra infusion of keratin will overwhelm delicate strands. If you have fine strands, opt for a less intensive treatment. However, at-home keratin treatments are perfect for fine hair.
