By now, you have probably heard about the wonders of Kerasilk and how it can turn a head of frizzy, unmanageable hair into smooth and luxurious locks. But you may still be wondering, how exactly does it work and what can I expect if I get it done?
First, keratin treatments use keratin, silk proteins and glyoxylic acid to manage frizz and smooth hair. Your stylist will begin by shampooing your hair as usual and skipping the conditioner. Then, they will dry your hair to about 80% dry, before beginning to apply the treatment. Because even coverage is crucial, the treatment will be applied to your hair in small sections at a time. Once your whole head is covered, it will sit on your hair for 15 minutes.
Now, the part that may surprise you. There’s no rinsing out (yet) - the next step is to blow dry the product right into your hair. Then, your stylist will flat iron your hair completely, working in very small sections. After this complete, it’s time to rinse your hair and shampoo again to make sure all the product is removed. Then, a keratin sealing serum is applied and your hair is blow dried to style.
It’s a lengthy process that can take up to three to four hours, but the results are well worth it. Especially, if you’ve never had the chance to see your hair looking healthy and shiny before.
Some other tips for first timers:
- Don’t worry about the smell! During the treatment process, you may notice a strange odour - this is completely normal and will disappear by the final rinse and blow dry.
- Hang in there. The process will take a while and you may be surprised that your stylist will have you go over to the shampoo bowl again after they’ve just spent a long time meticulously straightening your hair. But don’t worry, they know what they’re doing. And the end results will blow your mind!
Plus, with Goldwell’s Keratin treatment, you don’t have to worry about some of the “rules” you may have heard about with other similar treatments. You can still wear your favourite braids and ponytails, and perhaps best of all, no waiting to shampoo after. Your stylist will shampoo you before you even leave the salon and your new look will still be locked in!
