- Quick - On average, the treatment takes one stylist 1 ½ to 2 ½ hours depending on the lenght and texture of the hair.
- Universal - It can be used on dyed or highlighted hair. In fact, it can be used on any type of hair.
- Gentle - It is NOT meant to be permanent and it DOES NOT require neutralizer or immediate rinse. It requires redoing approximately every 3 to 4 months.
That is why you can leave it on the client's hair and walk away if you have to. That is why you can use it on children. That is why it blends with the natural growth of hair.
- Natural - It does NOT use strong chemicals to open and close the hair cuticle in an effort to straighten it, “breaking the bonds” of the hair shaft. Keratin is a natural substance which comprises approximately 88% of your hair.
- Healthy- It penetrates the hair repairing internal damage and coats the hair preventing further damage. The results are SOFT, SHINY, STRAIGHT hair.
- Easy - Begin with a shampoo designed to open the cuticle. Saturate the hair with the product (an average of 3 ounces). Blow dry. Iron small sections of hair close to the scalp with a low heat flat iron. Iron the entire head with a high heat flat iron to seal the keratin into the cuticle.
- Simple - Do NOT wet, wash or use any clips or pins (or anything) on your hair for FOUR days. After the fourth day, shampoo and condition your hair with products free of sodium chloride and sulfates, which will strip the keratin from the hair. Our specially formulated line of shampoos and conditioners are the best available for maintaining the most long-term results.
So here are my two cents:
- Simply Amazing - The results speak for themselves. As one client said: “I'm so happy I don't need my therapist anymore!”· Good for anyone who has hair.
What is it?
Keratin is a type of protein high in the amino acid “Cystine.” This special amino acid is what makes hair super tough and extremely elastic. Scientists refer to Keratin as a “Biopolymer,” due to its unique structures and interesting properties. Biopolymers are found throughout nature and give form and structure to naturally occurring substances all around the world; everything from leaves to trees, and turtle shells to goose down. Keratin is a classic example of a Biopolymer and it is the main structure building protein in our hair and nails.
I had a very busy day yesterday with the Anniversary Sale. After shopping like crazy, Lola the rat dog (aka Canine shopper extraordinaire) and I headed over to the salon to get our hair done.

As part of Jeremy's Brazilian package, he is going to wash out my hair for me on Tuesday morning (and two more times in the next 3 months). I'll be sure to post again with a picture and my thoughts on the results. But for now, I'll just say I am very optimistic for the long-term (well, 3-6 months) results and excited to see how it looks and feels on Tuesday. Stay tuned.....
