Keratin Treatments

A keratin treatment is a hair smoothing treatment meant to condition or straighten dry frizzy hair.

Keratin treatments are used to straighten and smooth hair without causing any damage to the follicle.  By pressing in the keratin with heat, the results are are astonishing. Keratin Treatments don’t harm your hair in any way.

Brazilian blowout & keratin treatments bond proteins to the outer layer of the hair and help smooth and straighten the hair. The bonding process takes place during the hot blow-dry and  flat iron application.

Both Brazilian blowouts & keratin treatments remove frizz and  add shine.

The Brazilian blowout is the popular option, but not the best!

Before I get into the reasons why,  let’s discuss these treatments in detail.

Brazilian Blowouts —

The product used for this treatment gets its protein from a blend of amino acids. Before the product is applied, the hair is shampooed and carefully dried until only a small amount of moisture remains. Once application is through, the hair is dried and flat-ironed. The Brazilian Blowout unfortunately produces a formaldehyde gas.

Keratin Treatment —

Similar to the Brazilian Blowout,  Keratin treatments start with shampooing the hair and drying it completely. Next the product is applied and covered with a cap for roughly 20 to 30 minutes. The hair is then rinsed, dried and flat ironed. The active ingredient is an organic benign glyoxilic acid.

Clients leave the salon with the product partially or completely in their hair and are asked to wash it out after three days.

Keratin treatments take between two and three hours. The look will last about three months.


We love seeing the look on a client’s face when the treatment is finished.
