Do you dream of having smooth, frizz-free hair that looks effortlessly polished, even in the most humid weather conditions? If so, then a keratin treatment might be the answer to your hair woes. Before getting the treatment, there are essential things to know. Let’s dive into the must-know facts about Keratin Treatment.

1. It Cuts Your Blow-Dry Time in Half

A Keratin Treatment can drastically decrease blow-drying time and reduce frizz, making it especially helpful in hot climates like Singapore. It is due to the treatment that fills the hair with amino acids. The treatment smoothens your hair cuticles, making them more manageable and cutting your styling time in half.

2. It Does NOT Worsen Hair Loss or Thinning

It is important to note that during any Keratin Treatment procedure, the concentrate is only applied to the hair and not the scalp. Thus, it would not aggravate hair loss or thinning. Why then do many people attribute hair loss and thinning to Keratin Treatment? The misconception arises because Keratin Treatments make hair smoother, reducing its curly and frizzy nature. So, if worries about hair loss have been holding you back, rest assured and give Keratin Treatment a try.

3. It Works on All Hair Types

Keratin treatment suits all types of hair

Contrary to popular belief, Keratin Treatments aren’t exclusive to a particular hair type. Whether your hair is straight, wavy, or curly, keratin can enhance manageability and reduce frizz. While some hair types may experience optimal results, a tailored approach ensures a suitable Keratin Treatment for everyone. The hair treatment that is best for you depends on how damaged, thin, or curly your hair is. Want to know which hair treatment suits you best?

4. You Cannot Perm or Rebond Your Hair After Keratin Treatment

Here’s a vital drawback of the treatment— Keratin Treatment is currently incompatible with perming or rebonding lotions. The risk of breakage and irreversible damage is still too high. Attempting these services post-Keratin Treatment poses a risk of breakage and irreversible damage. Until technology evolves, it’s best to avoid other retexturizing services if you plan to perm or rebond your hair.

5. Longevity Varies in Aftercare

The longevity of your treatment depends on post-treatment care. Typically lasting 3-6 months, the effects gradually diminish with each wash. The lifespan of your Keratin Treatment depends on how well you care for your hair afterward. Going for regular moisture and cuticle protection treatments can extend the benefits by improving your hair’s protein-moisture balance. Avoiding contact with sodium chloride (a.k.a. salt), found in saltwater and pools, is crucial, as it can shorten the treatment’s lifespan.

Beware of Wrong Homecare Products

Preserving your Keratin Treatment requires sulfate-free products, but not all are suitable. Even in sulfate-free items, certain ingredients can strip away the treatment. Opt for Keratin Treatment-specific products with Glyoxylic Acid to maintain the benefits. Avoid using sulfate-free products labeled “natural,” “micellar,” or “protein-rich,” as they can make your treated hair coarse, rough, and dry.
