What is the Keratin Treatment?
The keratin treatment is a cosmetic procedure to chemically straighten your hair. It is made out of the protein, keratin. Keratin is found naturally in your hair shaft to protect and shield against humidity. External factors like weather, styling, and the sun cause the loss of keratin in your hair. This can lead to frizzy and dry hair. The keratin treatment boosts the amount of keratin in your hair shaft. Leaving you with the appearance of smooth, shiny, and frizz-free hair.
Benefits and Best Hair Types for the Keratin Treatment?
The keratin treatment is best suited for those who experience excessive frizz, dry hair, and almost unmanageable hair. The keratin treatment is a healthier option rather than straightening your hair every day. It promotes shine, prevents frizz, smooths the hair cuticles, and reduces the time for styling. It is not recommended for those with fine, straight hair; it may create the appearance of flat, lifeless hair.
