Keratin Smoothing is a revolutionary new smoothing and strengthening system that automatically opens the cuticle, infuses strengthening keratin proteins and moisturizing emollients, and seals them into the hair. it creates a barrier between toxins in the environment, such as smoke, pollution and ultraviolet rays, preventing them from damaging your hair or fading your color.
Keratin Smoothing eliminates up to ninety-five percent of the frizz and curl from the hair, leaving the hair soft, shiny and luxurious. And, unlike hair which has been chemically straightened (permanently changing the structure of the hair), hair that has been treated with Keratin Smoothing Complex will still hold a wave or curly style.
This is a life changing experience as your hair will be more manageable and your daily styling time will be dramatically reduced for 3-4 months! Keratin Smoothing is gentle and can be used on all hair types including color-treated, previously relaxed, and extensions.
How it works.
The eponymous main ingredient of this procedure is - you guessed it - keratin! Your hair (and fingernails) are made of a natural product called keratin. The Brazilian keratin treatment uses a liquid form of this protein that penetrates thehair shaft, softening and adding shine from the inside, and sealing the hair cuticle on the outside.
Unlike Japanese chemical straightening or relaxers, there is no high alkaline content or caustic chemicals to damage or cause breakage to yourhair. The internal and external structure of the strand remains intact, instead of being "broken down."
The process takes one to four hours and costs between $150 and $600 (whereas Japanese straightening takes upwards of six hours, and starts at a cost of $450). Thehair is washed first, and the solution is combed through its entire length. Then, subsections of the hair are either blown out and flat-ironed in turn, or just flat-ironed. This process seals the keratin to the hair, producing the desired results.
The effects last anywhere from six weeks to a few months, although hair will become less stick-straight and regain more of it's original texture as time progresses.
