Here’s Everything You Should Know About Keratin Treatments

We all know that being in the Philippines comes with dealing with its hot and humid weather, and some of us understand the struggle of having to cope with frizzy hair once the heat and humidity take a toll on our strands. This is why most of us Pinays, if not all, have heard about Keratin Treatments, which are also known as Brazilian Blowouts. 

Maybe you’ve heard from someone that they’ve gotten a Keratin Treatment, or maybe you haven’t! But, really, what is a Keratin Treatment and what does it do for your hair? Read on to find out what you need and want to know about Keratin Treatments, and you might even want to try it someday!

What is a Keratin Treatment?

First and foremost, keratin is a structural protein within and outside your strands that gives it strength and stability with the ultimate goal of protecting your hair. But because of hair damaging factors, like heat styling and hair dyes, they can destroy your hair’s natural keratin – making your hair become brittle and frizzy.

Good thing there are Keratin Treatments – they are chemical procedures that add keratin onto the outer part of your hair to make up for any of the natural keratin you’ve lost. A Keratin Treatment is a restorative treatment and is also a time-consuming process, but it sure is worth it! This treatment adds a new protective layer of keratin to your strands, which will make your hair shinier, smoother, and stronger! Indeed, a life-saver for those with frizzy hair!

Getting a Keratin Treatment in the salon can take several hours, but they do last for a long time – so it’s worth the wait! Depending on the condition of your hair and how you take care of it, the treatment can last up to 5 months.

This type of treatment adds a protective keratin layer to your hair which fortifies your strands. As a result, your strands won’t easily break off which can help slow down thinning hair and make hair grow faster.

Whether you’re someone who is always on-the-go or not, giving your hair a Keratin Treatment can save a lot of your time and efforts! With frizzy hair, blow-drying and straightening your hair can be very time-consuming. But with this type of treatment, it shortens your blow-dry time and you wouldn’t need a straightening iron!

What to do after getting a Keratin Treatment?

After sitting on the salon chair for hours, there’s no doubt that you’ll want to properly take care of your newly treated hair to make the most out of your Keratin Treatment! Now, here’s what you should do after getting one:

Don’t shampoo just yet!

After getting a keratin treatment, your hair will be vulnerable for the first few days. The golden rule of post-keratin treatment is not to shampoo for at least 72 hours. At the same time, wear your hair down instead of tying it up to avoid creating creases and dents on your hair! This also includes avoiding tucking your hair behind your ears.
