If you have naturally curly or wavy hair that just can’t seem to stay straight, a Keratin hair treatment (also known as a Brazilian hair treatment) might be right for you. This type of hair treatment smooths out and straightens wavy or curly hair. Lashes and Lace offers Keratin treatments at our salon in Mt. Pleasant, SC! 

How a Keratin Treatment Works

Basically, a stylist will apply a keratin product to your hair. This product will most likely have some amount of formaldehyde in it, so your stylist will carefully avoid getting the product on your scalp. The treatment remains in the hair as it is blow-dried and then flat-ironed. Some stylists wear masks as they do the treatment and they may have you wear one, too. Treatments are usually done near an open window with a fan blowing. The treatments usually take 2 hours or longer depending on the length and thickness of your hair. After the treatment, your hair should be curl and wave-free, but you should not wash your hair for 3-4 days to ensure the treatment remains effective. The treatment lasts usually about 2 months or a little longer. However, you may have to blow-dry or flat-iron your hair to get it straight as the treatment wears off. But, your blow drying time will be cut down by about 40-60% if you have had a Keratin treatment.

Am I a Candidate?

Unlike some hair straightening treatments, Keratin treatments can be done on color-treated hair. They work well on people with wavy to tight curly hair. If you are sick of fighting the frizz, you'll love the results from the keratin treatments– they get rid of frizz even in humid or rainy weather.
