More on Keratin Hair Treatments

Keratin is good for your hair; it is a vital protein that keeps your hair strong and healthy. It leaves your hair luscious and shiny, and without Keratin, your hair will disintegrate. At Pro Files Salon we use only safe keratin hair treatments such as La Braziliana that contain no formaldehyde.

La Brasiliana Keratin Treatment with Collagen

La-Brasiliana Keratin treatment with collagen is a revolutionary process that transforms the hair. The treatment is keratin based. Keratin is the primary protein of the hair, skin and nails. This natural substance gives hair the ability to return to its original healthy, shiny, smooth state while collagen improves the elasticity of the hair. La-Brasiliana Keratin treatment with collagen is not a relaxer. It softens, shines, smooths, eliminates frizz, and gives instant manageability naturally.

What is a keratin hair treatment?

Also known as Brazilian hair treatments, keratin hair treatments are a semi-permanent, hair-smoothing, curl-softening professional chemical treatment. They make hair straighter, shinier and even healthier. The treatments are usually made up of a chemical like formaldehyde (which creates the long-lasting smoothing effect), conditioners, and some keratin (a protein our hair is made of to add strength).

Who’s the best candidate for a keratin hair treatment and who isn’t?

If you spend a ton of time blow drying and flat ironing your hair and/or have curls that you want to loosen, or if your hair has frizz or lacks shine, you’re likely a good candidate. Keratin hair treatments work on a variety of hair textures including African-American hair types, and color-treated or previously chemically treated types, according to Jordana Lorraine, stylist and keratin hair treatment technician at the Dino Clark Salon in Santa Monica, Calif. Do avoid these treatments if you are pregnant, have severely damaged hair from too much bleaching, bleached hair that’s super fine, stick straight fine hair or have slight waves you want to keep intact. Basically, if your hair can stand a 450-degree flat-iron, it can handle this treatment.

What does the treatment involve?

Typically your hair is washed with a clarifying shampoo and blow dried before the treatment is applied section by section, and combed through the hair. Then you may sit for a bit with the treatment on your hair before the stylist blow dries your hair a second time, and seals the treatment onto your strands using a flat-iron. Next, one of two things will happen — you’ll either be done and walk out the door knowing you can’t wash your hair, put it in a pigtail, get it wet or put it behind your ears for 72 hours, or the treatment is rinsed out, hair is blow dried and you leave knowing you don’t have to wait any time to style or wash it. The entire process takes two to four hours depending on your hair type and length. (There isn’t really a difference in results between these two styles, just that newer technology is allowing users to wash and style their hair sooner after treatment.)
