Keratin Salon Treatments: What You Need to Know
Updated: Jan 2
I've seen a resurgence of keratin appointments at my La Jollas salon. If you're not familiar, keratin hair treatments are a popular way to improve the overall health and appearance of your hair. Keratin is a protein that is naturally found in hair, and these treatments work by infusing the hair with additional keratin to help repair damage and improve its overall condition.
One of the main benefits of keratin hair treatments is that they can help to smooth and straighten hair. This is because the additional keratin helps to fill in gaps and imperfections in the hair's cuticle, which can make it appear smoother and more manageable. In addition, the treatments can help to reduce frizz and make hair more resistant to humidity, which can be particularly helpful for people with naturally curly or wavy hair.
Another benefit of keratin hair treatments is that they can help to repair damage and improve the overall health of the hair. Over time, hair can become damaged from a variety of factors, including heat styling, coloring, and chemical treatments. This damage can lead to split ends, breakage, and dry, brittle hair. Keratin treatments can help to repair this damage by providing the hair with the protein it needs to stay strong and healthy.
One of the great things about keratin hair treatments is that they can be beneficial for a wide range of hair types. Whether you have straight or curly hair, thick or thin hair, keratin treatments can help to improve the overall health and appearance of your hair.
For those with straight hair, keratin treatments can help to add shine and reduce frizz, making hair look more healthy and vibrant. For those with curly hair, keratin treatments can help to tame frizz and make hair more manageable, without stripping away the natural curl. And for those with thin or fine hair, keratin treatments can help to add volume and body, giving hair a fuller, more lustrous appearance.
In addition to the benefits mentioned above, keratin hair treatments can also help to protect hair from future damage. By providing the hair with additional protein, keratin treatments can help to make hair stronger and more resilient, which can make it more resistant to the damaging effects of heat styling, coloring, and chemical treatments. This can help to prevent further damage and keep hair looking healthy and beautiful for longer.
Overall, keratin hair treatments are an excellent option for anyone looking to improve the health and appearance of their hair. Whether you have straight or curly hair, thick or thin hair, keratin treatments can provide a range of benefits that can help to make your hair look and feel its best.
