Keratin Hair Treatment Kissimmee
Do you have thick, coarse, or frizzy hair, and are looking to cut your blow drying and flat ironing time in half? Keratin hair treatments are becoming increasingly popular at local Kissimmee hair salons and are a great way to tame puffy, fluffy, unruly hair.
Unlike permanent hair straightening or relaxers that break down the structure of the hair and can sometimes be damaging over time, keratin treatments are gentler, and coat just the outside of the hair shaft. Keratin, is also naturally found as a protein making up the structure of our hair, skin, and nails, so the treatment is naturally strengthening and smoothing to the hair, filling in gaps in the hair’s cuticle and imparting shine.
While keratin hair treatments won’t get you bone-straight locks, they are a great way to reduce frizz, and work well for people who still want to maintain volume, or wear their hair wavy or curly on occasion.
While the keratin hair treatment is not technically a conditioning treatment, it has a softening and strengthening effect to the hair, and can be done as a retouch to new hair growth at the roots every four to six weeks, and as a full treatment every three to four months.
During the keratin service, the stylist will evaluate your hair texture, and ask about any prior chemical treatments or color you’ve had done, analyzing the thickness and texture of your hair. This will allow your stylist to customize the strength of the keratin treatment solution and achieve the level of smoothing that you desire.
The keratin treatment service begins with the stylist using a clarifying shampoo to cleanse any build up or product from the hair. Next your stylist will apply the keratin solution to the hair in small sections, combing it into your strands to ensure even saturation. Finally, they will blow dry the hair smooth, and flat iron it into a sleek style, sealing in the keratin treatment.
Kissimmee stylists who specialize in keratin hair treatments suggest that guests refrain from coloring their hair two weeks prior to the service, and that guests wait at least a week for all-over color, and a month for highlights or balayage to ensure that the hair is not damaged and that guests enjoy the full effect of the keratin treatment.
While you may feel less frizzy immediately after leaving the salon, you’ll actually see the full effect of the keratin hair treatment in 48 hours when you shampoo for the first time. Guests report hair being softer, smoother, less frizzy, and that blow-drying time is cut down drastically.
