Keratin treatments have become somewhat of a buzzword within the world of hair care. These treatments are offered in hair salons across the world and have skyrocketed in popularity thanks to some of the amazing benefits that they offer. That being said, there are definitely a few things that you should know about keratin treatments before booking one with your favourite hair salon.
You’ll Need to Use Sulphate-Free Shampoo and Conditioner After Your Keratin Treatment
To properly look after your new treated hair, it is advisable that you only use sulphate-free hair products. Your hairdresser should be able to recommend some for you, but these days sulphate-free products are widely available and are better for the health of your hair.
Keratin Treatments Last Anywhere Between 2 and 6 Months
A keratin treatment’s results can last anywhere between 2 months and 6 months. It depends largely on how quickly your hair grows and if you care for your keratin treatment properly.
Smoother and More Manageable Hair
The main benefit that the keratin treatment offers is smoother and more manageable hair. The keratin seal on your hair will also protect your colour and give it a beautiful shine!
You Need to Wait 48 Hours Before Washing Your Hair
To allow the treatment to set properly, it is recommended that you wait approximately two days before washing your hair or getting it wet. This will allow you to enjoy optimal and long-lasting results!
You’ll Lose Some of Your Waves/ Curls
Keratin treatments are not exactly a permanent straightening solution, but they are known to take away some of your natural waves as the hair can become slightly heavier. If you are someone who loves their natural kinks and curls, a keratin treatment may not be the ideal treatment for you!
You Shouldn’t Get a Keratin Treatment More Than 2 or 3 Times a Year
It’s not really that you shouldn’t get keratin treatments more than two or three times a year. It’s more that you don’t need to! These treatments can be quite pricey, and with them lasting as long as six months, most salons will recommend getting a keratin treatment around 2 or 3 times a year.
