Wish you could make it last longer?
Don't you wish your keratin smoother, straighter hair could last longer?
Most salons offer this treatment and the first time, it seems perfect... but when you go back for the next one, have you noticed your ends get dry faster than ever?
OVERLAPPING .... the responsibility of NOT putting the chemicals on already treated hair is not being taught properly.
Once a hair is keratin treated, it should never be treated again with the chemicals that cause the curl removing process to work. They (you keratin person) means well, but if they aren't trained in recognizing with complete accuracy which part of your hair has already been keratinized, the overlap of those preliminary chemicals can spell disaster for your hair... not that you can see today, but as little as a month down the road, when you start seeing split ends and breakage and tattered hair...it's because of the overlapping of those chemicals. AND, even worse, if you color your hair, or have it colored, it seems to look amazing THAT day, but the vicious cycle of chemical overlap and progressive dryness has begun!
You should know this before your next keratin:
What Is Keratin? It is a protein and the major component in your hair; actually, hair is mostly comprised of keratin-associated proteins, AND these keratins are attached using silicones like cyclopentasiloxane, and dimethicone (silicone derivatives). This is why your hair appears glossy. It's a covering over the inner damage created by the flat iron, which you will see later as it wears off. This is the point we are talking about.
How It Works: After applying a keratin hair-straightening product to your hair, then the heat of a flat iron must be used to seal it in. The process could take about 90 minutes or even longer, depending on your hair's length and thickness. (The charts from manufacturers recommend heat up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit, which is too hot!) Stay below 400, and take into consideration that the heat trapped between the plates can flash up to 500 degrees or more..
Time-Saving: If you generally style your hair straight, a keratin hair-straightening treatment might shorten your time of blow-drying by 40% to 60%. If you also wand curl your hair afterwards, that's yet another treatment of heat zapping your moisture levels.
Say Goodbye To Frizz!: After the treatment you can forget about frizzy hair.....until the synthetic keratin wears off, that is!
Wait To Wash Your Hair: After getting the treatment you shouldn't wash your hair for 3 days because the mix takes time to work.
Maintenance: You could ( and should anyway) use sulfate-free shampoo to benefit the treatment and maintenance.
How Long It Lasts:Results last about three months.
HOW TO MAKE IT LAST LONGER:
Rather than take any chances with your long luxurious and precious length, Simply Smooth Humidity Blocker:
Prolongs the treatment with food grade gentle ingredients
Adds deep shine that makes its way deeper than the gloss covering of silicones
Manages new incoming hair growth as well as prolongs the smoothness of the already kertatinized hair.
Balances the moisture levels at the deepest level
Allows your hair to skip the expensive treatments for longer and longer.
(Realize that if it lasts for 3 months, with typical average of 1.5 inches of new incoming growth in that period, when the keratin shampoo chemicals are applied, they are applied to the already treated length....heated and treated AGAIN and AGAIN!....OVERLAP! )
The best solution is to nourish and feed your keratinized hair. If your hair is 12 inches long, and you treat those ends every 3 months, your ends will have had chemicals for 8 treatments. OUCH! NO wonder your hair is dry
