Keratin- Cure for Curly Hair Woes
by admin October 14 2020
Most likely the first thing that comes to mind when someone mentions keratin treatments is smooth, shiny, straight hair. While this is one way that keratin treatments are used, keratin treatments are also an option for those who love their curls. This temporary smoothing treatment can straighten your curls if you wish, or it can simply banish the frizz giving you smooth shiny curls that are easy to manage. And fellas, this is not strictly a lady’s treatment. It will work great for your hair too!
What Causes Frizz?
The job of the cuticle, the outer layer of each hair shaft, is to protect the hair. It is made up of cells that overlap each other kind of like fish scales. As the cuticle expands in response to dryness of the hair or humidity in the air the surface of the hair becomes rough and results in frizz.
How Does Keratin Stop Frizz?
Keratin is the main protein that makes up the cuticle of your hair. Keratin is lost through heat styling and other environmental damage leaving gaps that contribute to frizz. This is especially bad news for already porous curly hair. Keratin treatments replace this lost protein, filling in gaps and pores and giving the hair a smooth, frizz-free appearance. It may relax your curl a little, but that only makes your hair even easier to manage and style. Your stylist can work with you to determine just how much curl you’d like to retain to give you the look you want.
How Long Will it Keep Frizz at Bay?
A keratin treatment can be expected to give you frizz-free locks for about 3-5 months. There are some things you can do between treatments to get the longest-lasting results. Things like using a sulfate-free keratin shampoo, switching to a boar bristle brush to distribute natural oils evenly, washing with warm water instead of hot, and shampooing less often will all help your treatment last longer.
