Your hair is made up of keratin. A keratin treatment puts the protein back into the hair, which is often lost due to age and chemical services. Keratin treatments provide a protein layer over the cuticle which protects and seals the damaged areas, giving you an increase in shine, less frizz, and an easier styling process. As the hair is protected for an extended time, the overall condition of your is improved.
Pioneered in Brazil, the Brazilian Keratin Treatment ( also known as Brazilian Blowouts ) is able to be preformed on All types of chemically treated hair (bleached, colored, permed, relaxed or previously straightened) It is used on frizzy, damaged, unhealthy, dull and mistreated hair. This treatment eliminates frizz, unruly curls and waves without making it too flat. Whats nice about this treatment, is that it doesn't "grow out" it gradually and evenly washes out after 10-12 weeks and sometimes longer. This system does not guarantee straight hair but can relax between 50 and 90 percent of the curl depending on texture, if done correctly.
