Are you looking for smoother, straighter hair? Maybe a way to tame the frizz in your hair? Well, the keratin complex treatment could be the perfect solution for you.

What is Keratin?

Keratin is a protein that is naturally in your hair. It is the key structural material for making up hair. Keratin is extremely insoluble in water and organic solvents. Keratin monomers assemble into bundles to form filaments, which are tough and form a strong bond for your hair.

How does it work?

The hairstylist will apply a keratin hair-straightening product to your hair and then uses the heat of a flat iron to seal it in. The process takes about 90 minutes or longer, depending on the length of your hair. The entire process will straighten out your hair texture and completely eliminate frizz for up to three months.

Time Saving

Once getting the treatment, it will shorten your blow-dry time by 40%-60%.

Keratin treatments every three months can be healthier for your hair than daily heat styling.

While the high heat (450 degrees) of the flatiron used to set the treatment is not the easiest on your hair, itโ€™s still probably better than heat styling yourself day in and day out.  If having a treatment allows you to set aside your iron, the single dose of high heat may be well worth it.

What to Know After the Treatment

You can forget about frizzy hair! You can walk out in moist or light rain and your hair will not change.

You shouldn’t wash your hair for three to four days after getting the treatment. That is because the solution takes time to work, and showering before three days can ruin the treatment.

After getting the keratin complex treatment, and after the don’t wash period, you should use a Keratin Complex shampoo and conditioner to care for your new treatment. The shampoo and conditioner gently cleanses and helps restore strength and shine to your hair.

The Keratin Treatment will not make your hair break. Keratin is a restorative treatment. Even if you have good hair strength now, it still strengthens the hair shaft and makes your hair more resilient.


By applying keratin to your hair cuticle and sealing it in with heat, your hair takes on a glossier appearance. Your hair will be smoother and easier to manage on the daily. The effects vary greatly depending on whether your hair is healthy to begin with and what the natural thickness of your hair is.

Keratin works by smoothing down the cells that overlap to form your hair strands. The layers of cells, called the hair cuticle, absorb the keratin, resulting in hair that looks full and shiny. Keratin also makes curly hair less frizzy, easier to style, and straighter in appearance.
