Keratin treatment is a cosmetic hair treatment that smooths and adds shine to hair by coating the hair strands with a protein called keratin. This treatment can help reduce frizz, improve manageability, and make the hair easier to style.
The treatment is typically done in a salon and involves washing the hair, blow-drying it, and then using a flat iron to seal the keratin into the hair cuticles. The process usually takes about 2-3 hours and the results can last for several weeks, depending on the type of treatment and the hair's natural growth cycle.
It's important to note that some keratin treatments contain formaldehyde, which can have harmful effects on the health of both the hair stylist and the client. If you're considering a keratin treatment, it's a good idea to research the ingredients of the product that will be used and to talk to your hair stylist about any concerns you may have.
Additionally, it's also important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your hair stylist to maintain the benefits of the treatment and to ensure that it lasts as long as possible.
