Keratin Treatments

A keratin treatment is a hair smoothing treatment that  conditions, smooths and straightens dry frizzy hair.

Keratin treatments do NOT cause damage to the follicle. The keratin process is simple. Keratin treatments build the hair up, not bread it down.

Brazilian blowout and keratin treatments bond proteins to the outer layer of the hair smoothing and straightening the hair. The bonding process happens during the hot blow-dry and  flat iron application.

Both Brazilian blowouts and 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 blown and flat-ironed. The Brazilian Blowout unfortunately produces a formaldehyde gas and is not my choice for the process. I like the Uberliss process.

Keratin Treatments —

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 safe 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 keratin treatment lasts about three months. The more you do it, the longer it lasts.


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