Hassle Free Hair

Does your frizzy hair have you in a baffle as you start each day?  Have you ever wished you could have a more manageable mane?  If you could reduce your blow drying time each day would you want to know how?  Let’s face it, hassle free hair is something we all dream of.  And finding a solution to our own unique hair woes can sometimes leave us feeling bemused.  If this sounds like you, then you may want to consider a keratin treatment.  Keratin services have many benefits but there are a few things you must first be aware of before getting one of these transformative treatments.

What is a Keratin Treatment?

Keratin is a protein that is naturally found in your hair, skin and nails.  In human hair, keratin acts as an external protective shield and an internal structural protein.  Over time, as hair becomes damaged physically, chemically or from the environment (such as from the sun), the hair’s natural keratin becomes depleted. A keratin treatment replenishes the gaps in the hair by penetrating into the cuticle.  The treatment then works to strengthen the keratin bonds from within while repairing those damaged strands and smoothing the hair shaft.    

What are the Benefits?

The most common reason people get a keratin treatment is for improved manageability.  When keratin gets infused into your strands you will instantly experience less frizziness, your split ends will be mended, your hair will become shinier and smoothness will reign supreme.  Hair feels healthier and hair color becomes more visibly vibrant.  Time spent blow-drying may also be reduced by as much as 50%.                     

How Long will it Last?

A keratin treatment can last four to five months with the proper care.  The longevity of the treatment begins with the proper at home hair care regimen.  Unlike other salon services, getting the proper post care products for a keratin service is essential if you want it to last.  After a treatment, always opt for a sodium chloride-free and sulfate-free shampoo.  Use styling products, blow dry creams, and serums that are infused with keratin.  And when styling, do not pull your hair up into a braid or pony for the first couple of days.  If the Georgia heat has you wanting to relax in the pool, take caution, and follow this bit of advice.  Since chlorine and salt water quickly strip out keratin, always rinse your hair with fresh shower water before going for a swim.  Doing so will add hydration and help prevent your hair from absorbing unwanted chlorine and salt. 

Whether you’re heading back to school or simply want an easier start to your day, having hassle-free hair is something we all want.  The transformative and lasting benefits of a keratin treatment make it a unique service that delivers both enhanced beauty and improved styling.  If this is you, seek out a professional certified in keratin treatments.  And finally, you’ll be able to enjoy your hair, your way.
