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.

KERATIN TREATMENT IN SHERMAN OAKS

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!

WHAT IS BALAYAGE?

Describing what balayage looks like

I always get the question, What is balayage?

Balayage is the French word for feathering.

This technique is feathering color into hair. It can be decorative, made to look natural, or all outrageous.  This process can be a splashing of color into hair, highlighting in certain areas (sometimes around the face), or just a few peekaboo lights so they appear once in a while when you move your head a certain way.  I’ll talk about Peekaboo highlights in a future post.

These highlights, low lights or lights in general can be done several ways.

You can paint them on, board them on, or pick them up and put them in foil to strategically place them where you want to see them exact.

This is one of my favorite ways to color hair. The effects are beautiful.

Next time you feel like experimenting with you hair color, ask about the balayage technique.
