Q: What is Keratin straightening?
Keratin straightening is a procedure that infuses natural keratin deep into the hair’s cuticle. This extremely popular procedure eliminates up to 95% of frizz and curl, while adding amazing shine, silkiness, and condition to the hair. The results can be rather extraordinary to say the least. Founded by renowned stylist Peter Coppola, all Keratin Complex treatments and styling products are formulated to contain natural keratin protein, which rebuilds, restores, and rejuvenates all types of hair including color-treated and chemically-processed hair!
Q: How long does it last?
It is a semi-permanent procedure that lasts about 10 weeks. Times vary, depending on how porous your hair was before the treatment took place. Repeating the treatment every few months will allow re-treatment of the new growth.
Q: How long does it take to do the procedure?
It can take anywhere from 2-5 hours to perform the service. The longer the hair, the longer the procedure.
Q: What is the actual procedure?
A solution is applied at the scalp and then combed well so that the solution spreads throughout the hair. It is typically done in four sections. Once all four sections have been treated, the hair is blow-dried, then straightened with a flat iron.
