Initial Keratin

A keratin treatment is a chemical process that smooths and shines frizzy hair. Its results can last for up to six months. There are many different versions of this treatment, and our hairstylists can customize a blend of the formula to suit your needs. We offer Initial Keratin treatment as well as many other versions of it.

Some versions of the treatment release formaldehyde when heated, but many newer versions are formaldehyde-free. No matter the formaldehyde content, on a basic level, keratin treatments dive into the hair follicle and inject porous areas with keratin, which is an essential hair protein. Your hair will appear healthier, because it actually is.

The length of time it takes to do a keratin treatment depends on the formula the stylist is using, as well as your hair texture, and how much hair you have. Expect your salon visit to last anywhere from two to four hours. When you arrive, our hairstylist will first wash your hair. Then, she will either apply the keratin treatment to your wet hair and let the formula saturate each strand for about half an hour, or will blow-dry your hair first and then apply the treatment — again.

It all depends on your hairstylist and your hair needs. Finally, going over any coarse strands with a flat iron on low to medium heat is done. This is depending on areas where the treatment needs to be sealed in.

You shouldn’t wash your hair for three or four days after getting the treatment. After you get a keratin hair treatment, and after the don’t-wash waiting period, you should use sodium-sulfate-free shampoo to help maintain the treatment.

Please note: *Add extra $20 for medium length, $40 for long and $60 for extra long hair.
