Keratin is one beauty treatment that has caught fancy of many the world over. Stylists swear by it for smooth, frizz free and beautiful hair. And who wouldn’t want that? Remember how blissful life seems days after a blow dryer at the salon and before the next head wash? Easy to manage, smoothened hair not only looks great, it also gives a lot of room for experiment. But before we make up our mind to go ahead with the treatment, here’s all you’d want to know.
What is Keratin?
It is a protein naturally present in our hair. Its function is to coat the hair, preventing it from environmental changes and other conditions that adversely impact our hair quality. In the case of some of us, this protein may not be present in sufficient quantity naturally, making our hair more curly and frizzy than others’. A keratin treatment at the salon restores this protein in hair, giving it the healthy shine that it needs.
Is Keratin Treatment for You?
The treatment gives your hair a smooth and straightened look, making hair much easier to maintain and manage. So if you are one who loves the blow dry look, then just go for Keratin! No more eleventh hour trips to the salon for a blow dryer. Be it a friend’s party or a family-do, you no longer need to worry about your hair. Just wash them and you are good to go. The treatment involves application of a cream for about 40 mins, followed by a rigorous hair ironing session. Heat from the iron locks the keratin on the hair, making it a more stable layer around the hair.
Keratin v/s Smoothening
We often confuse the two and are seldom clear which one to opt for. The difference is not to be overlooked. Keratin treatment works by making a protective layer around the hair, restoring its moisture, shine and health. The result is not pin-straight hair, but a soft, blow dry look, making hair about 60-70% straight. While smoothening may last longer, it involves more chemicals. It works not by forming a film around the hair but penetrating it. It may last couple of months longer and results in pin-straight hair.
Is Keratin Treatment Safe?
This is a question that strikes us all. But you can now be rest assured. When you visit the salon for the treatment, don’t shy away from asking your stylist to show you the bottle of the treatment cream. Most salons use a formaldehyde free product. This eradicates the doubts that most of us may have. Check the ingredients and ask for a formaldehyde-free treatment. Believe us, you won’t regret it a bit.
