KERATIN TREATMENT REVOLUTION

keratin treatment before and after

The keratin treatment revolution has finally taken hold.

If you don’t know the benefits of a keratin treatment, you might be missing out.

Whether your hair is colored, highlighted or just plain ole dry, a keratin treatment will help strength and moisturize your hair. The keratin treatment will add a protective layer of protein on your hair and shield you from the elements.

Dayvani came in and has never had color or any other treatment before. Dayvani’s words were, “I never thought my hair could ever look like this!” Dayvani will be returning in a few days to have me throw some lights in her hair.

The next step will be to balayage and brochette some lights behind her hair line so that they will look seamless, modern and sparkle!

Stay tuned!

KERATIN TREATMENT BEFORE AFTER

Keratin Treatment Before and After

Louise came in with dry brittle over processes hair. This is her keratin treatment before and after.

Louise was very unsure about whether or not her hair would ever recover. Her hair had been bleach highlighted, colored over and permed by her last hair stylist.

As you can see, Louise’s keratin treatment has left her hair gleaming.

Her concerns about whether her hair might become more damaged by the treatment were the same concerns many others have. As one can see by her before and after,  her hair was restored to the silky smooth asian hair she had before. Needless to say Louise was so pleased with her before and after, she’s prebooked her next appointment.

I recommended a sulfate free shampoo for Louise to maximize the life of her keratin treatment.  Another subject I’ll talk about in the near future.

Below is a direct link to a few other keratin treatment before afters.

WHAT’S FIRST KERATIN OR COLOR?

What’s first, keratin or color?

Some might say the keratin locks in the color, so the color should come first.

I always individualize the treatments based on the persons personal needs and hair. Most times, the order doesn’t really matter.  I usually like my clients to have their color done about two weeks after their keratin treatment. The reason,  because often the keratin treatment might lighten the hair color a few shades. Sometimes, If the client wants to lock in the color, the keratin treatment will do just that.

So what’s first, the keratin or the color?

I will also try and get my clients to wait at least a week before getting the color done after the keratin treatment. The keratin will sometime serve as a barrier to the color. If you’re trying to cover your gray, It might be more difficult. It always helps when the keratin has washed off the hair a few weeks for better coverage.

HEALTH AND BEAUTY

keratin treatments sherman oaks, los angeles

The health and beauty of your hair not only depends on the hairstylist you choose, but the products your hairstylist chooses. Choose Wisely!

The health and beauty of your hair when it comes to the keratin treatment you choose, is just as important.

Uberliss, the keratin treatment I subscribe to, is a formaldehyde free product. Attached to this post is a picture of how Roxana went from dry unmanageable hair, to silky smooth hair in just two hours.

The health and beauty of your hair related. As a hairstylist of many years,  I have used just about every product under the sun. I can honestly say, there’s a big difference between some color systems and keratin treatments.

The color system I use is called CØR, by Simply Organics. It’s PPD free and Ammonia Free. The health and beauty of your hair not only depends on the hairstylist you choose, but the products your hairstylist chooses. Choose Wisely.

This CØR color system by Simply Organics is one of the best I’ve ever used.

Health and Beauty when it come to your hair, is always related to what you’re subjecting yourself to. When it comes to your heath make sure you’re not poisoning yourself or your hair with toxic ingredients.  Remember to ask what your hairstylist is using.

KERATIN TREATMENT IN SHERMAN OAKS

keratin treatment, brazilian blowout

Looking for a keratin treatment in Sherman Oaks?

“I often get the question will a keratin treatment break my hair down?” The answer is a keratin treatment will build your hair up. “Basically, we found a way to hot press protein into your hair.  This not only serves as a barrier to the elements around you, but builds hair up on what you have by nature. So, if you have fine hair, you will have thicker hair when you leave the salon.”

If you’re looking for a keratin treatment in Sherman Oaks, look no more. MJ Hair Designs is using a formaldehyde free keratin treatment called “Uberliss”.  Not to be mistaken by the Brazilian Blowout which emits a formaldehyde gas.

Michael at MJ Hair Designs is not only a color specialist, but a keratin technician.

For a Beverly Hills hair stylist in Sherman Oaks go see Michael!

LIZA’S KERATIN TREATMENT

before and after keratin treatment

Had a wonderful visit with Liza. Liza came in asking for a keratin treatment. Liza had dry brittle frizzy hair.

Of course I was very happy to help Liza get her hair back in shape again. Keratin treatments are the most beneficial treatments for curly frizzy hair.

Liza’s keratin treatment left her with the softest, straightest smoothest hair you can get. The process took all of 2.5 hours. The keratin treatment of choice is Uberliss. Uberliss is a formaldehyde free keratin.

Thank you Uberliss for another successful treatment.

CRUELTY FREE HAIR COLOR

Hair coloring that's ammonia free, cruelty free, resorcinol free and organic

Last year I jumped on board with a hair color company I fell in love with. Among other things, I found that Oway was cruelty free.  The coloring system that’s not only cruelty free hair color, but PPD free, resorcinol free,  and ammonia free. What more can a hair colorist ask for?

At first I was was skeptical about OWAY and  how effective it was, but now I’m sold.

Cruelty free hair color? Who would have thought that there was such a thing. Well, the truth is this luxury line is not only cruelty free, but a step above organic. Oway is considered green in the fact it believes in rigorous safety testing and is cruelty free hair color as well as ethical purchasing and sustainable.

This cruelty free hair color is also ethical in the sense it partners with 800+ verified  Fair Trade networks. Oway chooses 100% infinitely recyclable materials, minimum design, and eco-friendly manufacturing methods for all their products.

CØR the permanent color system, follows the  cruelty free hair color tradition.

All Oway’s products are 100% cruelty-free, as certified by PETA. 80% of Oway’s line is vegan-friendly.

TOXIC LATHER SULFATES

blog, bad hair, sulfates, 1300x650

Although you’ll see fewer salon brands with that toxic lather sulfates create,  you’ll see them in almost virtually all commercial brands shampoos.

Sulfates are a toxic detergent you’ll want to avoid. They may lather well and help remove dirt and oil from your hair, but it’s poison to you and your hair in the long run. Yes, you love the suds they create and the lather is refreshing, but sulfates are the little devils in disguise.

Surprise! The lather and suds you love in your shampoo could be hurting you and your hair.

Now don’t get me wrong, I love a good lather too, but these irritants do more than just that—they’re also responsible for causing sensitivity to the skin and scalp, and can strip the hair of its natural oils. Sulfates are so good at cleaning your hair, they can over clean causing them to become rough, dry, and brittle.

Instead, use a sulfate-free surfactant that gently cleanses the scalp and hair without stripping it of its natural (healthy!) oils.

A sulfate free shampoo will help preserve your hair color and help your keratin treatment last longer.

FORMALDEHYDE FREE KERATIN

formaldehyde free, keratin treatment, brazilian blowout

The Uberliss keratin treatment is formaldehyde and methylene glycol free!

When doing any kind of chemical treatments at the salon, I use only the safest and best color and keratin treatments. Uberliss a formaldehyde and methylene glycol free product. One of the best keratin treatments available today.

One of the nastier ingredients you’ll find listed on the back of any consumer product is formaldehyde.  It’s a colorless, strong-smelling chemical.

Say no to formaldehyde.

Formaldehyde and formaldehyde-releasing preservatives (FRP’s) are still used today in a number of cosmetic products to help prevent the growth of bacteria.  This will help preserve the shelf life of the product at your expense.

In the case with certain types of keratin treatments, it help’s smooth and lock the hair into place for months on end. But, at your own personal health cost.

As a known carcinogen, formaldehyde has been linked to several types of cancers, as well as numerous other health concerns, including allergic reactions, skin sensitization, eye problems, headaches, and problems with the immune system.

Needless to say, it’s best just to stay away and say no to any products with or producing formaldehyde gas. Go formaldehyde free today! Go Uberliss.
