Cindy's Keratin Treatment

24th March 2018

“When I walked in at Plaza Hair Salon my hair was frizzy and damaged but after the keratin treatment, my hair regained its strength again.”

Cindy B.

First date, second date, any date, weddings, business meetings, girl’s night….so many occasions when a woman wants to look amazing. We all want to look beautiful, want to feel beautiful and self-confident.  Actually, we want that every single day. We need a nice dress, amazing shoes, and a shiny, beautiful hair to make us feel confident and sexy.  Usually, we can do all of that without a stylist’s help but when it comes to our hair it’s the best to ask for help, the help of a skilled, competent hairstylist. Keratin hair treatment is a true blessing for most women who have problems with their thick, frizzy or curly hair. 

Keratin? What is it Exactly?

The structure of the hair is 97% keratin and 3 % water.  Basically, is the main element of our hair.  The keratin often lost over time due to age, weather conditions, high heat temperatures (blow dryers, hot rollers, flat irons) chemical treatments and products.

Keratin Treatment for Healthy Hair

The keratin used for keratin treatments is a protein which adds an extra layer of protection to your hair making it more strong and healthy.  Keratin treatment is also a beauty treatment making your hair look shiny, silky and more manageable.

Why Should You Try it?

It strengthens the hair, making it healthy

No more problems with thick, frizzy, curly hair

It makes your hair more manageable

You can save time, won’t need to spend as much time as you use to with hair care (it can shorten your blow-dry time, don‘t need to wash it as often as before)

First Time?

If you decide to try the keratin treatment, it would be best to do it with a professional, such as our experienced stylists here at Plaza Hair Salon.

The keywords are competence and quality: competent hairstylists and good quality products.  Our hairstylists can explain you all the steps, the hair products you can or can‘t use after the treatment. The main steps of the keratin treatments are:

  1. Clarifying the hair (shampooing the hair sometimes 2 or 3 times)
  2. Section the hair and wear a mask to prevent you to inhale the used chemicals
  3. Apply the keratin
  4. Blow-dry the hair
  5. Flat iron the hair.

The effects of the keratin treatment last 3-6 months (depending on how damaged, frizzy or curly your hair is), so technically you need to get it redone twice a year.  Your hair will be more manageable, it will look shiny, with a soft silky touch. Highlights will look richer and your hair will look healthy.  One of the most current questions from our customers is about keratin treatment and hair coloring.  We suggest coloring your hair before keratin treatment. You can color your hair on the same day but it‘s suggested to do the color first. It’s also important to follow some steps after you keratin treatment and for that, you can get all the information from our professionals (for example, you should not wet your hair in any way the first three days after your keratin treatment, need to avoid rain, swimming or using shampoo hairspray or gel).

After 72 hours of your keratin treatment our advice is to use sulfate-free shampoo and conditioners and to generally use high-quality hair care products to maintain the results longer.
