Say Goodbye to Frizz with Keratin Treatments

Say Goodbye to Frizz with Keratin Treatments

July 30 2019

If you’re tired of fighting the frizz, a keratin treatment is a great way to get things under control. Keratin treatments are smoothing treatments that work to smooth, soften, protect, and straighten hair.

Keratin is a protein. It’s a part of your natural hair, and you lose some of it when your hair is damaged by heat or the environment. This leaves some gaps in the hair’s structure that leave it porous, and porous hair reacts to humidity by causing that frizz.

Keratin treatments fill those gaps and seal each hair strand, making it smoother, softer, and frizz-free.

Unlike relaxers, which chemically alter the structure of your hair to straighten curls, the smoothing and sealing action of a keratin treatment keeps your hair’s natural structure but, in most cases, relaxes curl so your hair is straighter but still retains that natural-looking movement.

Keratin treatments work for just about every hair type, color, and texture, although some people might experience a change in color. That’s because when hair is smoothed, the light reflects off hair strands differently, resulting in a slightly different tone. Keratin treatments will leave most hair looking silky and shiny, enhancing your hair’s color.

The duration of a keratin treatment varies based on the type of treatment. At Utopia, we offer an express treatment that lasts 4 to 6 weeks, a more intense treatment that lasts about 3 months, and even a shampoo-to-shampoo treatment for those special occasions when you really want your hair to look its best.

Once treated, hair feel soft and smooth. It’s easy to manage and style, and it’s frizz free, even in high-humidity conditions. Because it infuses a protein and other conditioning ingredients, keratin treatments can make damaged hair look silky soft and gorgeous.

Aftercare is easy and usually just requires using a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner formulated for your hair type. In most cases, there’s a wait time to shampoo, so plan your schedule so you’ve shampooed before your salon visit. You also may need to wait before styling in an updo, because the keratin needs time to set. Your stylist will explain how you can take care of your keratin treated hair so the effects last as long as possible.
